Happy Halloween! I got a lot of great emails from yesterday’s post, so I will surely be posting answers to questions soon. But—for today—I thought I’d share all of my favorite Halloween treats! (And tricks)
Kids Movie: Hocus Pocus (Or The Little Vampire)
Scary Movie: Anything on TV that I haven’t seen before. (That way, I may actually get scared)
TV Show: American Horror Story (Which comes on tonight!)
Classic Novel: Frankenstein
YA Novel: The Party Room
Food: Pumpkin Pie…especially right now, at Perkins, they have Pumpkin cream pie. So delicious.
Candy: Branch’s Strawberries!
I’m dressed up like the Pink Power Ranger. I suppose my name is now Kimberly.
Happy Halloween! Here’s our pumpkins!
Because I have family in Pennsylvania (I was also born there) here’s links on information over Hurricane Sandy, so you can track it like I am!
I hope everyone is safe!
Watch Live Coverage here. (There is some amazing–but terrifying–footage on this site)

Sorry for the lack of posts! I’ve been busy with school and Halloween. BUT—speaking of Halloween—I watched a scary movie recently that I think is a great Halloween flick: Insidious.
After moving into a new house, a family starts having strange occurrences. Once one of the children falls into a coma, the family decides to move, thinking the house is haunted. But it may not be the house. And it may not be a haunting. It’s definitely not what they think—and I was completely wrong the entire time I was guessing. Insidious is not only a different kind of a scary movie, but the plot is unique, and I actually was into it (because, let’s be real, most scary movies today aren’t that good or scary—but I liked this one).
So, if you’re looking for a scary movie, but a different kind of scary—get Insidious. (It’s also PG-13.)
Watch the trailer here.
If you don’t like scary, you could always stick with Hocus Pocus or The Little Vampire. (Those are my favorite).
After I posted my interview “How Do I Write?” I received a few emails regarding my answer about music. Some of you were surprised to find out I don’t write with a soundtrack (as many think of music while writing as the soundtrack during a movie), and others asked me what kind of music I listen to where the lyrics aren’t distracting (because they’ve had the same problem), so I thought I’d explain more in depth. Plus, I realized I’ve only posted one other “Music Muse,” so where could I go wrong?
I LOVE classical music—which I know isn’t for everyone. To be honest, I’ve been listening to classical music since I spied on my grandfather in what I remember to be the “gold room” in his house (the room was decorated nicely, and us little kids weren’t allowed in it without an adult).
When it comes to classical music, of course I listen to the classics (ha. Beethoven. Mozart. Etc.) But, my recent favorite is DeLord. There’s something very haunting and mesmerizing about his sound that I can’t get enough of.
So, without further explanation, I’ll let his instruments explain:

Okay. Okay. I know. This isn’t exactly my classiest post (or my longest), but I couldn’t help myself.
I saw Magic Mike in theatres, and it’s the perfect Girls-Night-Out (Or Girls-Night-In with wine and chocolate) movie!
Today Magic Mike was released on DVD, and of course it is an adult movie (Rated R), and it’s completely directed at women, and some people have complained that it’s downgrading, and it’s not for everyone. I get that.
That being said, if you’re open-minded towards strippers (Cough, Cough, CHANNING TATUM), then go rent this for the weekend, invite some girlfriends over, and have a great time!
