“October, baptize me with leaves! Swaddle me in corduroy and nurse me with split pea soup. October, tuck tiny candy bars in my pockets and carve my smile into a thousand pumpkins. O autumn! O teakettle! O grace!”
This book had been on my radar for a while now, and when I joined NetGalley, it was one of the first things I requested. I never in my wildest dreams thought that I would be approved, but I WAS! I consumed this story in a day and a half.
I read this book years ago when it first came out and honestly I only remember small bits of it and the fact that I enjoyed. So I was so happy that this was Pages and Proses Book of the month. Revisiting this story I can see why I was drawn it all those years ago.
I read this book with Molly’s book club. This book had been on my TBR for a while as I always heard great things about this story and the synopsis alone was something that caught my interest. So thank you Molly for making this the book of the month.
Hello and welcome to my first ever Watching Wednesday!
For a while I had toyed with the idea of making posts about things I’ve watched whether or not I have enjoyed them. I did one in the past and decided to start it up again.
So, today in anticipation of Netflix’s release of The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, I will talk a bit about a movie that holds a place special in my heart and childhood, The Dark Crystal. A dark fantasy adventure puppet animated movie that instilled a love in me for fantasy and adventure stories.
