WHAT'S COMING UP IN THE NEXT 3 MONTHS:

OCTOBER:
1. Doing some spooky gothic reading.  Nothing too scary for me.  I'm a lightweight.  Reviews, too.  Not doing any special Halloween reading list as everyone's doing those, and I've done them before.  Besides, others will do it better!  Just low key for me!  
2. Domestic Violence Awareness Month is in October.  I will be highlighting some books that take a look into this subject.

NOVEMBER:
1. Nonfiction November 2014!  I am very excited to get to help out Kim, Lu, and Katie this year!
2. Travel the World in Books - Nonfiction Readalong


DECEMBER:

MASSIVE GUEST POST AND GIVEAWAY HOLIDAY EXTRAVAGANZA 

Similar to the Holiday Extravaganza of 2012, only bigger, better, and more extravaganza-y.  You don't want to miss it!
