Notes from Melissa
It’s October!! Bring on the best 3 months of the year.
For some reason, I always feel super invigorated this time of year (I think part of it is that my allergies and sinuses let up a bit so I’m not always either in pain or in a fog) Plus Halloween, Thanksgiving And Christmas!! Need I say more? I even posted a few reviews for some great Christmas Reads…see below.
I really took it easy with the blog over the Summer but plan to really get back into it this Autumn. Hopefully Anna’s Blog Ahead will help me get a bit of a cushion back. It’s a great event and if you are interested…you should definitely check it out. Link below.
As you can see, I’ve been reading a lot…I just need to actually write of my reviews. At least for the review books – I generally don’t review the 2/3 of the books I read that are pleasure books…but am thinking that I really should even if it’s only a compilation monthly of one line reviews.
DO YOU GUYS REVIEW EVERY BOOK YOU READ??

What I’m Watching
📺 Ghost Whisperer– I watched this show years ago when it originally aired and just remember loving the setting (small town upstate New York,Antique shop & Renovated Victorian home) and even moreso Jennifer Love Hewitt’s clothes…I was obsessed and maybe I still am. LOL Hubby and I happened to be channel surfing and saw a bit of an episode on the telly and now we’re watching the series on Netflix. I’ve been on a cozy mystery reading kick lately and I think this show is feeding into that for me!
