Stacey What's your favorite Halloween candy? Milky Way

Do you or did you dress up this year? This year I did not. My kids want to go with their friends, not with their crazy dressed up parents. I don't understand, lol.

What's your scariest movie? Silence of the Lambs.

Are you superstitious? Not really, but if I'm in Vegas and certain numbers are working for me, I won't change them! In fact, if they start not working for me, I still won't change them.

What are are you reading this week?
I'm finishing up
The Astral: A Novel and Never Look Away: A Thriller


Lynne - The Book Squirrel (squirrelsend) I like toffee!

I will be wearing my witches dress for the kids as I have decorated my porch with my witches and broomstick.

Misery

Not really superstitious

Finish The Bookman by Lavie Tidhar

Melki I'm allowed to eat all the Butterfingers and Almond Joys the boys get in their treat bags.

Won't be dressing up this year - at least not in public.

Though the Paranormal Activity movies have kept me on the edge of my seat, I still think the scariest movie is "The Exorcist".

I'm not at all superstitious - I love black cats and don't even notice when it's Friday the 13th...BUT, ever since I started Goodreads, I like to have an even number of friends. Don't know why...

I just read 3 horror stories in a row, so now I'll be taking a break from the scary stuff for a while. My current book is The Madonnas of Leningrad.

Are you superstitious? No.

message 8: by Sam (new)

Sam (ecowitch) | 157 comments What's your favorite Halloween candy? I'm currently scoffing some jelly sweets in the shapes of skulls, brains, pumpkins and bones!

Do you or did you dress up this year? Yup, went to a friends party in my usual witch's outfit (yes I actually have all the proper dress up stuff for said outfit)

What's your scariest movie? The Nightmare Before Christmas is my fav movie ever (does that count as scary even if I don't find it so?)

Are you superstitious? My head says no but the rest of me says yes very!

What are are you reading this week? I'm currently reading The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett and I'm still going with Bird Songs & Calls of Britain & Northern Europe by Geoff Sample.

I've also recently received Jake West - 'The Keeper Of The Stones' by M J Webb, which I made a start on yesterday and I'm thoroughly enjoying so far. I've also got the sequel, Jake West - Warriors of the Heynai, which I plan to read this week too.


message 9: by Mary (new)

Mary | 236 comments I like little Kit-Kats and Heath bars.

Nope, no dressing up -- just an orange t-shirt with jeans.

I'm not big on scary movies and can't even remember the last one I saw. Maybe "Misery"?

I'm superstitious at various times -- probably more OCD, usually involving numbers.

I'm about halfway through FALLING TOGETHER (Marisa de los Santos' new one) and loving her strong character development and beautiful word choices. If you like her style, it's vintage Marisa!

message 17: by Annika (new)

Annika The Birds (and birds in general) still creep me out! When I was about 5, I was eating a hot dog at the zoo, and a big icky seagull (one of those big nasty looking ones) came and took the hot dog out of my hand. I've been freaked out by them since!:)
