15 Semi Last-Minute Book-Themed Halloween Costume Ideas

I seriously cannot believe that October is almost over. Probably the fact that is has been above 85 degrees most days here hasn't helped. So, my costume post is a bit late. This year, our family is dressing up as the classic Little Red Riding Hood (group costumes are my favorite). Stay tuned for more info on that after the holiday!

Review: The Rebel Series and $25 Giveaway to Amazon!

Today, I am the last stop in the tour for the Rebel series by Lance Erlick. I was interested in this story, because I love stories of dystopia, science fiction, and alternate realities.
