Halloween Traditions

Halloween is my favorite holiday! Every year I carve pumpkins and watch the Disney TV Monster Hits from 1987. It’s a great movie. There’s nothing like eating popcorn and candy corn and watching it with the house smelling like freshly carved pumpkins and cinnamon. Another tradition is making my Halloween costume. I’m putting on the finishing touches, so stayed tuned for more about it. What are some of your fun halloween traditions?

Ender's Game and 172 Hours on the Moon

When you can a book with a refreshing plot and storyline, it is a wonderful surprise. This past week, I picked up Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card. Here’s the link to the Shelfari book profile: http://www.shelfari.com/books/35825/Enders-Game.

Ender’s Game is written magnificently. It’s a page turner right to the end. Upon buying this book, I read it eight times in a row. This sci-fi novel raises great points about survival, the greater good, and other topics. I would definitely recommend that you check it out.

Although I’m not usually a fan of scary books, 172 Hours on the Moon by Johan Harstad blew my mind. Here’s the Shelfari link: http://www.shelfari.com/books/25630279/172-Hours-on-the-Moon

The author is a master with plot tests and the outcome is surprise through the final page. This sci-fi novel has elements of truth which makes the entire storyline seem plausible. You should look into this book for sure.
