Thank you for joining me today for week three of the Sweet Evil Read-A-Long hosted by the most awesome Mindy from Magical Urban Fantasy Reads and co-hosted by myself and Tara from Taters Tall Tales, Rachel from Fiktshun and Jaime from Two Chicks on Books.
This is the final week of the Read-a-long and we will be reading chapters 26-31. The topic of discussion for this week is Halloween. I hope that all of you had a great time reading SWEET EVIL along with us, for it is a really great book with a plethora of memorable characters and a storyline that is smart, unique and wicked.
Before I proceed I will give you my favorite bit in these last few chapters.
" He led me by the little finger, weaving between people until we ducked down a set of narrow stairs into a dark cellar doorway, hidden by the shadows. Euphoria exploded inside me at our nearness.Why is it suddenly hot around here...ummm...let's proceed.
His mouth found min in the dark, fiery and rough. I gave a tiny whimper before melting into him and pulling his face down to mine even harder. In that kiss we spoke all of the things we couldn't say. He kissed me with an urgency born of some strong, unstable emotion: fury. I tried to imagine the nature of that feeling. Was he angry because of how I made him feel? Angry that he was powerless to change tonight's outcome? I didn't know, but I welcomed it. I wanted any emotion from Kai that he was willing to share.
I needed this kiss. I needed this last moment of feeling alive. My body pushed against his, thanking him, memorizing him. His hands roamed roughly down my back and over my hips, yanking me closer, tighter."
Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year. Not only do I get to dress up, hello....love doing that, but I also get to gorge on candy, watch scary movies and just feel like a kid again. What is not to love? I must admit that out of all of them dressing up is my favorite part of Halloween so I will share that love with you.
Here are some of the many costumes I have worn over the years. As you can tell I really, really love to dress up. Do you dress up for Halloween also?
These are my literary inspired costumes
This was my Volturi Vampire costume.
Here I am Effie Trinket style
Now these are my fun costumes
Me as a punk raggedy Ann with Nemo
As you can see my costumes are not of the norm

Me as Foxy Cleopatra. This wig was no joke. It was huge.
Now my Steampunk look
As you have witnessed I love dressing up for Halloween. I wonder if it is just me? I hope you enjoyed my little bit of show and tell. It was great fun and I hope you have a safe and happy Halloween.
Make sure to enter in the SWEET EVIL contest and I am glad that you joined us on our adventures.
