Wishing it Would Stay October Forever

I woke up at 6:00 am and turned on the news.  Two holiday commercials were pushed down my throat with my morning coffee.  Oh Darn- it’s November 1st.  Christmas for the next two months. I am already waxing nostalgic for October- a time of family tradition.  These are my friend’s pumpkins- they make them every year.  The little fun size boy is getting better and making his “Black Flag Bars”.  I think its adorable copyright infringement, and a wonderful annual tradition.

About K.P. Rennie

I generally only write reviews about books that I am inspired to read more than once, so my book reviews aren't about new releases that I liked, they are about tried and true books that I LOVE. I favor quirky stories, inspirational memoirs, and real life drama. There are many movies and books that I have enjoyed more than once. If you liked any of these, we probably have similar taste- Books: Peter Pan, Choke, A Life Without Consequences, Fight Club, The Adderall Diaries, Lets Pretend This Never Happened, The Glass Castle, Another Bullshit Night in Suck City, Wild, The Tribes of Palos Verdes, Just Kids, Movies: Little Miss Sunshine, Seven Psychopaths, Ghost World, Pulp Fiction, Hook, Big Fish, Reservoir Dogs, Moonrise Kingdom, Being John Malcovich, I am President of The Fun Zone; The Center for the Study of Funism.
