Second Week of October/Inktober

Well, we’re halfway through the funnest month of the year, guys and ghouls. 😉 This week I managed to get 2 new drawings done for Inktober. Like I said, I’m going for a no-pressure approach to my first attempt at the art challenge and just trying to partake in the fun and get some practice in. 🙂 Next month is going to be crazy enough attempting NaNoWriMo again, so I’m taking things lightly with this and just enjoying myself.

Horror/Halloween Movies and Shows Watched This Week:

Re-watched Night of the Living Dead (1968)

Re-watched Ginger Snaps (2001)

Re-watched The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

American Horror Story: Apocalypse (2018)

The Purge (TV Series, 2018)

Horror Reading Throughout the Week:

I started reading The Haunting of Hill House, by Shirley Jackson. This one was a freebie find in a Free Books bin at a shop I enjoy going to. Seemed like the perfect time of year to snatch this title up. I have been enjoying this Gothic horror novel so far. 🙂

I also just started reading Mira Grant’s Parasite, the first book in her Parasitology trilogy. This one is classified under Science Fiction/Horror. It’s actually the book club book for next month, but since I am going to be participating in NaNoWriMo I figured I’d start it now to ensure I have time to complete it. 🙂 Especially seeing as it was none other than the spectacular Cupcakes and Machetes‘ pick for the month! As luck would have it, I’m also enjoying this one so far.

In Other October News:

Mr. Moth surprised me by bringing me home a pumpkin! 😀 Can’t wait to carve this baby up and proudly display it on our front porch!

I got two interesting and tasty sounding seasonal bottles of soda I have yet to try, one being apple cinnamon, and the other being blood orange gingerbread.

Went to the local costume shop by my house to buy some makeup for our Halloween shenanigans this year. I was going to try to experiment with it this weekend but ran out of time. Our costumes are all set, though, and I just gotta practice doing some skeleton face paint to finish our looks. 🙂

Now that we’re halfway through October, what are you looking forward to doing to celebrate as Halloween grows ever nearer? Are you dressing up? Let’s talk October/Halloween! 😀

  1. Did you like The Purge? I watched all 6 episodes this weekend (didn’t realise not all episodes were released) and i thought it was pretty good. My friend was disappointed cuz she expected more action/blood, etc 😀

    Love the drawings ❤

    1. Thank you! ❤
      I've been kind of lukewarm with The Purge. It's been pretty decent, but I'm hoping by the time I finish it I'll be more invested in the characters. I just don't really care what happens to them so it makes the stakes not feel as high as they could be, I guess.

    1. Yeah, I’ve been enjoying it (though some parts seem an itsy bitsy slow). I hope you’re liking it so far. What do you think? (Oooh, book club rebels, discussing the book BEFORE book club?! What heresy is this???) 😉 😛
      I hope you got to pick your pumpkins and that you guys have an amazing Halloween!! ❤

      1. I’m really enjoying it so far. I LOVE HERESY!! lol. I haven’t personally found it to be slow yet as it’s been keeping my attention. I look forward to seeing how it ends though. Definitely an interesting concept! (No tape worms for this girl, scientifically engineered or not!)

  2. Speaking of Hill House, I highly recommend a seemingly forgotten British horror flick – The Legend Of Hell House, it’s a great movie from the 70’s, creepy and claustrophobic, and stars the awesome Roddy McDowall from the original Fright Night and Planet of the Apes. 🙂

    1. Ooh, thanks for the recommendation! 😀 I think I remember seeing the case for that one when I worked at a movie rental place back in the day. Now I’m wishing I’d checked it out! I’ll have to rectify that error now that it comes with an official recommendation from The Precinct! 🙂 Hope you and Salem have a Happy Halloween! 😀
