Chattin' It Up w/ Ty Langston (Halloween Edition)

Ana: Welcome to Beach Bum Reads! I’m glad you can join me tonight :)
TLangston: Hi Ana! Thanks for having me !! 

Ana: We’re going to start off with some basics…Can you tell us a little about yourself?
TLangston:  Well, I’ve been writing since I was very small. I was someone that always loved the arts. I took dance for many years as well as piano. I worked at a regional newspaper for many years and went to school for Broadcasting  and wrote a bunch of scripts.  There is  something cathartic about writing. In my opinion, everyone has a story. Whether you are just sitting down to have a meal and something happens while you are eating; to something as tragic as a plane crash.  It’s fun to people watch and just wonder how people spend their day. I used write a lot  until my junior year and after that I had stopped for awhile to go to college, job, boyfriends, friends, etc.  I picked it up again in my mid twenties. I began to write fan fiction for fun a few years ago . And it was a friend of mine that really encouraged me to do try to get something published.  So I did and have been writing professionally since. 

Ana: Any plans for this Halloween? Are you a put-on-a-sexy-costume-and-go-to-a-party kinda girl, or are you the overdose-on-candy-while-watching-horror-flicks kinda girl? 
TLangston: I’m one of those who overdose on candy while watching horror flicks kinda girl. LOL

Ana: Do you believe in ghosts? 
TLangston: Yes. I do.  I believe after we’re gone regardless of religion who worship to or not that even though our lives may be over on earth, there is something more on another platform we all must do to go to. 

Ana: You’re walking through a haunted house and you can only have one item with you, what item is it and why? 
TLangston: My running shoes so that I can run!! hahahah 

Ana: What is your favorite candy to binge on, on Halloween? 
TLangston: Reese peanut cups!!! I love them and kit kats. I actually buy a stash for myself and then some some for the trick or treaters..LOL

Ana: If you were to write a thriller, what would you name it?
TLangston: Last of the Finest (which is one I have partially written actually. I wrote it 20 years ago. I re-read it  a few months ago and I’m amazed at how well it’s stood up.  It’s very different than anything I’ve ever written. )  

Ana: What’s the best Halloween event that happens in your town/neighborhood? DETAILS!
TLangston: Not much really.  I love my little neighborhood, but there’s not a lot going on!!! There are however, lots  of trick or treaters.  Back in the day, there used to be a lot of parties, I’m out of loop, if there is, can someone let me know???? LOL!  

Ana: (For all the fans out there) Do you happen to know what Cass & Harper are dressing up for this Halloween?
TLangston: Oh that’s a good question! I wonder too. Well,  LOL. Oh, I Let me think about that. I think Harper would be a “Southern Belle and Cass would be a ‘Southern Gent.” It would take Harper out of her comfort zone.  

Ana: What’s your favorite Halloween movie?
TLangston: Ooh. Let’s see.  There are a few..LOL. The originals of Halloween and Fright Night, Carrie and IT…

Ana: What creeps you out the most during this frightful holiday? 
TLangston: Spiders. I just hate them.  

Ana: Do you have a arms-chilling-eyes-clinching-all-thoughts-thrown-out-the-window ghost story for us? (We’ll take made up ones as well :p)
TLangston: Ok, many years ago. My friend Vicki had this Halloween party at her house and we were watching movies. Actually the movie was Halloween. It was all dark and I was so into the movie that I didn’t know my friends left me just watching it. I was pertified when they asked me to come upstairs after the movie was over with. It was dark, the lights wouldn’t go  on. Well, Vicki and friends made sure the lights didn’t go on. I was freaked out and to boot, I dropped my glasses. I was freaking out! I walked around their dark home blind as a bat.  LOL

Ana: Okay, last question… and I’ve gotta ask… would you walk through a haunted house on the beach?
TBanister: Sure, why not! 

Ana: Thanks for stopping by! It was a pleasure having you! And have a Happy Halloween! 
TBanister: Hahaha. This was fun!! Thanks for having me Ana! 

Think Fast:

Ana: Trick or Treat?  
TLangston: Trick

Ana: Ding or Ditch? 
TLangston: Ditch

Ana: Sexy Nurse or Zombie Nurse?  
TLangston: Sexy Nurse

Ana: Witches or Vampires? 
TLangston: Vamps

Concluding our interview, Ty Langston will be giving away a PDF copy of Romantic Tales: Bedtime Stories Season 2 along with Romantic Tales: Bedtime Stories episodes 1 - 3 
a Rafflecopter giveaway
Good Luck!

As a child, multi-published author Ty Langston loved to read about dragons and knights so much that one day, her grandmother told her to "just write about them." 

So she did. 

From that day forward, she never left home without her pen, a notebook, and some kind of music playing in the background. Her love of reading expanded from fantasy into science fiction, and eventually into paranormal romance and erotica.

She enjoys different works from George Martin, Anne McCaffrey, Stephen King, and Jackie Collins. But some of Ty's favorite writers are from the world of TV and film: namely, Tudors creator Michael Hirst, and the late John Hughes.

Ty has a certificate in Broadcast Journalism along with a degree in Business Administration. She is single and enjoys spending time with friends and family.

Talking Zombies #16

Welcome back to another zombified week of Talking Zombies with Ana & Sharonda. Today we will be recapping on Sunday nights episode: S04E02 “Infection”
Ana: … So… you’re telling me…that on top of walkers, we have to deal with infections? oh sweet lawd. 

Sharonda:  Right?! its there’s something else to worry about beside the person that trying to get the walkers in the prison. 

Ana: I liked this episode, but I felt that they just wanted to kill off all the newcomers xD They were all, “uhhhhm, this is way too many people for this show, time to sharpen our knives… or, better yet, just throw them all to the zombie.” Sigh. 

Sharonda: I gotta agree. The episode was cool, I did like it. I’m screaming at my TV for people to run...lols. Seriously, they weren’t running fast enough for me. But you’re right, where did they come up with this idea? infect the walkers & the living? I don’t know about that. 

Ana:  lol @ they weren’t running fast enough for ya. Oh, I do agree! I don’t know, maybe they’re just trying to move the story along? But, whatever it is, baby Judith better not die! 

Sharonda: lol..still on baby Judith huh? but I’m sticking to my guns. Don’t mess with that baby at all!

Ana: What do you think about Carol talking to Carl about not talking to his dad?

Sharonda: I”m on the fence about that because I do agree that the kids should learn how to defend themselves. But I don’t like that she did that or how she did it...telling Carl not to tell Rick. She’s a grown ass woman, smh. I mean how would she feel if someone was teaching her kid something without her knowledge? I was just telling my sister, I hope they don’t make her unlikable….all the unlikable people eventually die off the show. 

Ana: I definitely agree with you there. If she becomes unlikeable, then we’re just gonna have to find another woman for Darryl xD

Michonne! She cried! I think she had a baby. When the hell do we get her background story?                       

Sharonda: OH that part slayed me! I was crying...crying Ana. Poor thing… I see now why she so standoffish towards everyone. You think that’s why she trying to get back to Macon? They need to give her backstory like NOW! lols. I need to know what happened to her. 

Ana: I think so. Either she has more family there that she left behind or something. I don’t know. But what about those walkers that she had with her when we first met her? Weren’t they her brothers? She never really elaborated on that. AAHHH We NEEEEEED her LAST SEASON! 

Sharonda: ROTFL @ like Last Season..I do agree. We need it now. IDK, I know from the comic book, they were her boyfriend & his friend. I don’t know what they made them to be on the show. Maybe family or something like that...

Ana: Tyrese… poor guy. Rick is definitely growing new balls. He straight burned ol’ girl! WHEREDEYDODATAT?!?! 

Sharonda: Wait?! forget Tyrese right now. You mean Rick burnt that girl up? What did I miss?

Ana: YES! Well, I think he did. Because in the preview for the next epi, Tyrese goes off on him. IDK, we’re gonna have to watch next weeks epi to figure it all out. 

Sharonda: You killing me woman! ugh! Okay, now I can’t wait. Poor Tyrese, he’s going to lose it like Rick did. Sasha going to be a wreck, I can see it coming...smh. 

Ana: YES! haha, I know, I’m a hot mess! I have to make all kinds of assumptions because this show is driving me cray cray! WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY (a little over dramatic eh?)

Sharonda: lols...Lawdy Lawdy, gonna drive me crazy..lmbo!

Question of the Week
So, Ana has made her assumptions on who burned Tyrese’s love thing and person unknown. And Sharonda is totally lost, buuut who do you think burned them?
Ana: Thanks for stopping by! Don’t forget to leave a comment down below! And answer this weeks question! 

Sharonda: Thanks guys! Yes, leave your comments. Let us know what you thought.

Talking Zombies #15

Welcome back to another zombified week of Talking Zombies with Ana & Sharonda. After a long awaited return of The Walking Dead, we’re finally back to rant and gush about the season premiere of SEASON 4!! 
Ana: Are we loving it or hating it so far? I…am a bit lost for words at the moment.

Sharonda: It had its know? I was meh...then I was excited. Is that good?

Ana: I think that is good. I mean, hell, I’m still interested in finding out what happens next. That kid that died at the end? WTF.

Sharonda: I know right? that cannot be all. But I knew something bad was going to happen...just knew it!

Ana:  Yeah, aside from ol’ boy dying in the store, I knew something was up with that kid. I’m a little sceptic on how things will pan out now, though. Why is Michonne always leaving and coming back? It wasn’t like that before? I must be trippin’.

Sharonda: See...that was the exciting part for me. I mean I’m sorry the kid died, but that was like epic and then the helicopter falling in the damn store. I was WOW! LOL! nope..ya ain’t tripping because I was thinking the same thing. I don’t know what to make of Michonne, I really don’t. But the question is why the hell she wants to get to Macon? what the hell is there? smh….her character confuses me and we still haven’t gotten a back story on her yet.

Ana: Lol @ the kid dying was exciting for you. Oh my gawd! haha. Yeah, the helicopter part was def a good one. Especially since they ended up saving that guy who caused all the ruckus and not the kid. I mean, hell, if I was Michonne, I would have killed the walker that bit his leg, cut off his leg and then haul ass! Or is that too much? Hell, they cut off Hershel’s leg!

Yeah, I want to know what’s in Macon as well. Maybe family? I don’t know.

Sharonda: Sorry...I can be morbid sometimes, but the show was like dragging. OMG...I was saying the same thing, over a damn bottle? smh..not good dude. Not good. EXACTLY!  I was waiting for someone to just you something. You think they got soft in those 30 days? lols.
IDK, but I do hope we get more of a back story on her...I don’t even know what to make of her character. But I’m glad she’s getting along with everybody at least.

Ana: RIGHT. I think he’s a recovering alchy, or...OR, maybe he is an ALCHY! BURN HIM! lol I’m kidding. But, uhmm, I smell trouble with that one. Definitely gone soft in those 30 days. Yeah, I just hope they don’t let Michonne get all comfy and happy, happy with people in the group, and then BAAAAAM they snatch her up out of the show and bury her 6 feet under. >.<

Sharonda: Alchies are never good...a liability. I don’t see him in the show long. But we shall see….
They better not kill off Michonne or Darryl is all I’m saying.
Glad I’m not the only one who thinks that. And the Maggie & Glen with the pregnancy thing. I was like if somebody else get preggers...I’m soooo done! and Tyrone...what's up with him? All soft & don’t likey at all.

Ana: We shall indeed.

Michonne & Darryl are off limits! And baby Judith! heh.

OMFG. She wants to live! He doesn’t want her to. lol. I mean, I get where he’s coming from, but I think they need to take it easy, one baby is enough. xDDD  Okay, waaaaait. Tyrese and Sasha… THEY’RE FATHER AND DAUGHTER!!! Why didn’t they clarify this shit last season? UGH. I agree, he’s going soft, but.. *cough* there’s a lady friend involved ;) lol

Sharonda: I don’t want no more all. Call me me a wimp, but what are they going to do when those zombies come? I just think they should have left the baby out of the show period. say what! They’re Father & Daughter?! stop it..for reals?! I gots a headache, okay I’m being dramatic...lmbo! Well I did think they were brother & sister.That ain’t right man..not right, I dislike when the do that.

Hehehe...everybody hooking up this season..I'm like okay! But no babies..dang it, lols!

Ana:  Lol @ left the baby out of the show.

YES, there was a moment in the epi where Tyrese says, “When were you not boss of me?” And she replied, “A few months before I was born.” Or maybe I’m trippin’ maybe they are brother/sister? UGH. I’m so confused.

Lol, yes, baby Judith is all I can handle. Next thing you know, everybody is preggers and dying soon after birth. All that’s left in the world is the daddies looking after they babies! xD

Sharonda: I think I missed that part. Hell...who knows at this point & I’m just has confused as you are...two confused is that good? LMBO!

ROTFL @ baby daddies...hahaha!

Ana: Okay, I just looked it up, they are brother/sister xD Lets disregard my “father/daughter” comment. Matter of fact, let me go cross that out xDDD

Sharonda: lols..okay.

Question of the Week
Are you satisfied with the first episode of Season 4?
Ana: Thanks for stopping by! Don’t forget to throw in some of your thoughts/comments on this epi!

Sharonda: Yes...thanks for stopping by..what my girl said :D

ARC Review: Dare You To by Katie McGarry

*Received from NetGalley*
Dare You To
(Book #2 in the Pushing the Limits series)
Amazon | Goodreads | BN

Author: Katie McGarry
Publisher: Harlequin Teen (May 28, 2013)
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance, 470 pages

ISBN-10: 03732106391
ISBN-13: 978-0373210633
My Copy: ARC eBook

If anyone knew the truth about Beth Risk's home life, they'd send her mother to jail and seventeen-year-old Beth who knows where. So she protects her mom at all costs. Until the day her uncle swoops in and forces Beth to choose between her mom's freedom and her own happiness. That's how Beth finds herself living with an aunt who doesn't want her and going to a school that doesn't understand her. At all. Except for the one guy who shouldn't get her, but does....

Ryan Stone is the town golden boy, a popular baseball star jock-with secrets he can't tell anyone. Not even the friends he shares everything with, including the constant dares to do crazy things. The craziest? Asking out the Skater girl who couldn't be less interested in him.

But what begins as a dare becomes an intense attraction neither Ryan nor Beth expected. Suddenly, the boy with the flawless image risks his dreams-and his life-for the girl he loves, and the girl who won't let anyone get too close is daring herself to want it all....

Daring games taken to a whole new level. ROMANCE level that is. *swooning* Why...oh, why. Can I just kick Beth to the curb and take Ryan for myself?

I absolutely LOVED this book. The way Ryan doesn't give up on Beth and tries his damndest to make her feel loved and open her up, not just to him, but to herself as well is so damned cute! *sigh* where's my Ryan Stone? Baseball player? HELLO?!? HAWT! I will admit one of the things I wasn't hot about, was the fact that it took Beth forever to finally understand, but, hey, character building right? I guess I just wanted a fast HEA. But, then again, I'm a very impatient person.

The little cutsie things that Ryan would do for Beth just had my heart MELTING!

(yes, I would totally over dramatize myself swooning like this)

ME! ME, ME, ME! Yeah, I totally replaced Beth in those, it's-so-fluffy-I-could-DIE moments, while reading this book. KMcGarry definitely knows how to put a big ol' cheesy grin on your face. You know, those grins where you get an unexpected text/call from your boo thang/honey bee/role playing master and you just can't help but smile. Yepp, those. And not just those either. KMcGarry also has you wiping tears from your eyes with the heartbreaking moments in this book as well. WOW. Talk about an emotional roller-coaster. Not in the wow-fuck-me-this-book-was-horrendous, but in the omfg-that-roller-coaster-was-the-BOMB-I'm-getting-on-it-again. Or in this case, totally reading it again ;)

I kinda liked the fact that although Beth had her major issues, so did Ryan. With his ever perfect parents wanting him to do what they want him to do, and him going against the grain and pushing them to their limits had me enjoying the book that much more. I felt sorry for both characters, yeah, Beth has it bad, with her drug addict mom who is stuck with an abusive boyfriend, but in Ryan's world, his problems are big too. What he wants to do with his life and who he wants in his life is his decision not his parents.

From Pushing the Limits to Dare You To, KMcGarry definitely knows what she's doing. Delivering a book that will keep you up well past dawn, hooked on the boiling romance that is building between Beth and Ryan. Katie McGarry gives you another full blown teen drama, filled with indecision, hurt, acceptance and love. If you're into new adult novels, then definitely pick up Dare You To and if you haven't read this series before, go ahead and pick up the first book in the series: Pushing the Limits.

By Author Ty Langston: CRAVE

As a reporter for the Wakefield Post, Harper Erkstine has seen everything. From murders to robberies, all of her recent stories have ended with tragic consequences so great, that she began to question if she made the right career choice for herself.

While all of her friends were dating, or going to clubs, she was winning journalism awards for covering the latest drive-by shooting or a home invasion that cost someone she knew, their lives.

She loved her job, it was rewarding to be a crime solver and get to the truth of the matter. As much as she loved her job, but the hours of a Metro beat reporter began to descend her into burn out mode.

She craved balance. A break, a welcome distraction every now and then. She forgot what it was like to have fun, to take a breath, smell the roses.

Was it wrong to want a great career and to have some kind of a personal life? She couldn’t remember the last time she had a date or danced with someone from the opposite sex.
In the middle of working on a missing person’s story that has rocked her town to the core, Harper decides as a favor to her friend and colleague to do a feature on local an up and coming rock band, called ‘Crave.’

It was a break from her routine, but Harper soon discovers that this band may have ties to the missing person, not only does she question why, but she also finds there is more to this band than just their music.

By Author Riley Ross: The Getaway

The Getaway isn’t your typical romance woman meets man of her dreams, loses him and then they get their happily ever after. It’s a romance story with hints of drama and plenty of comedy. Mike and Juliet have been dating for about four months. Juliet is madly in love with him but has never shared her feelings.

Mike hasn’t said those three magical words so she doesn’t even know if they are on the same page when it comes to their relationship. Mike takes Juliet on a two week vacation, so she can escape her family drama and stresses from her job. He has romantic surprises planned and there are several unexpected surprises for them both. How well do Mike and Juliet really know each other especially when an explosive secret from his past is revealed? Will their relationship survive a visit from his family and his ex-girlfriend? Will the secret destroy them or make them stronger as a couple? His mother has made it clear to everyone that she wants Mike back with his vile ex-girlfriend?

Will his mother sabotage her son’s relationship with Juliet? Juliet does have an ally in Mike’s father. Will Juliet fight for her love? Or will she let him go without exposing his mother for her dastardly schemes? How far will his mom go to ensure she gets what she wants for her son?

By Author Tigris Eden: The Genesis Project

Old earth has been deemed unsuitable for life, New Earth is home. With the Uni-War over, races have joined together in order to sustain their way of life. All life was deemed worth saving, but only one race failed to submit. Humans.

Now extinct, humans are a thing of the past, or at least their way of life. The people of New Earth won’t acknowledge their hand in the human’s eradication, but they have benefited from it. Dr. Vaggo Blackmore has found the answer, he’s restored his races way of life- sustenance through farming. The one thing that will give them back their long lives….. Blood: human blood.

Biologically engineered in a lab, Genesis Blackmore has always been different. Her father has told her it’s due to her enhancements, the Federated Council sees her as a genetic mutation; and her fellow peers see her as the shiny new toy. Gen has had better days.

Everyone on New Earth has milky white skin, platinum blonde hair, and electric blue eyes. It’s the norm. Genesis’ glossy, black hair, ice blue eyes ringed by gold, would have almost made her socially acceptable- if it wasn’t for her honey, almond skin and blue, gold veins. In a sea of milky white she alone is the dark anomaly.

All Pars get their life’s nourishment through blood plasma. All Pars find their match through the tasting. Gen can do neither, forbidden by her father to do so. She can neither taste, nor be tasted. Something that’s never bothered her until now.


Oh, the cliffhangers. I'm not one to pick up anthologies, but.... damn. This was good. In episode # 1 of the Romantic Tales, you're given three different stories by three awesome authors.

When given an assignment, reporter Harper Erkstine finds herself perched on bar stool listening to the sweet savory voice of Cass St. Marie, lead singer of the upcoming band CRAVE. Good music, hot men, and a really bad case of, fuck-me-now-it's-been-forever-and-sing-my-name-with-that-sultry-voice-of-yours. .... No?? Oooh, it just might be me then. Cause, well, you know, hot lead singers that just scream it's-not-rape-if-i'm-willing.... aaand on with the review.

As I'd hate to spoil anything, all I'm going to tell you is that, Crave is a great opener for this fantabulous (fantastic/fabulous?? -- you heard it here first. folks) mini series. Ty Langston slowly leads you into this new world she's created for you. Giving you bits and pieces of the story, characters, and plot at a nice pace that will keep you turning the page (and boy will you be screaming to the high heavens (or on Twitter in ALL CAPS at Ty Langston for throwing a CLIFFHANGER at you). Now, the question is, where will Ms. Langston take you with St. Marie and Harper? Pick up the first episode of the Romantic Bedtime Stories and find out for yourself.

When you start reading The Getaway, you're introduced to a young couple, who's going on a short vacation. A Getaway. Relaxation at its best. Like the blurb says, The Getaway isn't your typical romance. Ms. Ross throws a young, beautiful couple at you and reels you in. Gets you all relaxed and has you loving this romance story that she's feeding you from the palm of her hand. But, that's just where she wants you. 

As the pages fly by, more characters are thrown into the mix. Ms. Ross gives you some drama that will have you hovering over the turn page with your mouse, just to see what will happen next. "WTF IS HAPPENING?!.. OH NO SHE DIDN'T" Yepp, that's my reaction towards the end of the first part of The Getaway. 

If you love yourself a romance with quirky goodness and drama to have you thinking you're watching a soap opera, then pick up the first episode of Romantic Bedtime Stories and have a go!

Wow! Just... WOW. I don't even know what to think. The world. The characters. The setting. Everything is completely new and refreshing. Tigris Eden gives you these well thought out characters and settings that are just, well, amazing. To be honest, I haven't read anything like The Genesis Project.

Gens characters is different, she's not like everyone else around her. No siree. She's different and she knows it. Tries to blend in, but she can't help that every male in a 10 foot radius wants her. Why is that refreshing? Well, for one, she's completely naive to it all. Blind to the sexual tension that she's causing. And two, she's still trying to figure out all these feelings that are going through her. What her body is telling her. Non humans in a new Earth. What's not to like?

The Genesis Project throws you for a bit of a loop, is it Sci-fi? Urban Fantasy? Paranormal? Or maybe bits and pieces of all three thrown together to give you something new. Sci-Norm-Fantasy? Heh. Nonetheless, it's great and again with the CLIFFHANGERS!! (I'm slowly dying of cliffhangers disease lol) If you want to get your hands on something new and intriguing, pick up the first episode of Romantic Bedtime Stories and start reading NOW!

Not what I was expecting at all from these three stories. Each story is different. Once you get to the first page, you are now a passenger on this cruise that takes you to different worlds. These stories might be short, but they do leaving you waiting and wanting to pick up the next episode to continue on the journey.

Le Gasp, She's Back!

SAY WHAT!?!? Heh. YES! You've read that right, I'm back. Ahhh. What to say? If you follow me on Facebook, then you know I've had issues with blogger. And not the "WTF is blogger doing, this shit is all wrong!" kind of issues, it was more like, "Excuse me, ma'am, you need the four number code to get into this account." kind of issue. If you put in your cell # as a security measure for your gmail, then you know what I'm talkin' about. Other then that, I won't go any further into it. As it's pissed me off enough already. 

UPDATES! I'm alive. YES! I  is alive. (whew, but apparently my grammar is dead heh.) I've been busy-ish. Doing me, still reading, I've got TONS of books I've read on my long hiatus (read: forced hiatus via blogger), so that means I've got a bunch of reviews that are waaaay overdue. ;( So all of my requested books will be get reviewed here on the blog as well as on Amazon, LibraryThing, B&N and GR (though, I've heard there's some drama there, but if you still follow there, reviews will be posted there) and I will be making a  BookLikes account as well. 

OTHER ;) Another thing (or hobby) that I've come into is... GAMING! (I dare say) I'm no gamer, but a friend did introduce me to a pc game that I'm just addicted to. And what game is that?! League of Legends! I am HOOKED! It's like having book withdrawals, except for a game! Here is a cinematic trailer of the game. It's AMAZING! If you play DOTA, then I'm pretty sure you know all about this game. If not, I'm happy to have introduced you ;) 

CHANGE?! Yes, I was thinking about changing the blog name, some of you already know that I'm having issues getting my .com back, so I was thinking of changing the blog name, maybe something a little diverse, so I can change up the design more (as I feel Beach Bum, needs to have a beach theme). Don't get me wrong, I love my blog, I just feel it's about that time for a change. But for now, I think BBR will remain the same until I do figure out what to do. But, because it is October, the design is back to my Halloween design. Too much pink? SORRY! ;) 

Well, that's it for now, reviews will start going up tomorrow and there after. I will start picking up on memes so y'all can look forward to those posts as well. 

Go ahead and leave a comment, and don't forget to leave a link to your blog or your most recent posts  as I'd love to get back into visiting your guys' blogs! Much love!
