The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a fun weekly meme now hosted by Kathryn at Book Date, where we share what we've read and reviewed over the past week and what we plan to read next.
At the library we had our fall festival Saturday and it went very well. The weather cooperated and we had a good turnout for turkey bowling and pumpkin chucking. Monday's Boo Bash was also a success with some new teens and kids visiting the library to participate.
On Monday night on the way home from work I ran over a dead deer lying in the road (I didn't see it in time and couldn't swerve around it as another car was coming the other way). Thankfully my car was easily fixable (a plastic part was out of place and the mechanic fixed it for free) and there were no injuries. I've never hit a live deer but I hope I never ride over a dead one again either!
I'm kind of dreading this week. Between the time change I hate and election day it promises to be stressful. Thankfully I have Friday off in honor of Veterans' Day and I'll be visiting my parents for the weekend for our family's Thanksgiving. I'm going to be on Pinterest the rest of the weekend looking for recipes to make. Unfortunately I'm back to dairy free and gluten free living for the time being after a miserable week of tummy issues. My sister said she'd be bringing a gluten free and dairy free Paleo pumpkin pie. Her pumpkin pie bars were delicious last year.
Last week on my blog:

A Most Extraordinary Pursuit by Juliana Gray
While the ghosts/mythology/time travel elements were a little strange I mostly enjoyed this story especially once the action got underway.
The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson
I started this when I realized it was due back to the library. I think it is pretty good so far.
