What Will Your Favorite Authors Be Giving Out To Trick or Treaters?

Happy Halloween

What will your favorite authors be giving out to trick or treaters?*

Author Halloween Candy

Abbi Glines: “Two of my kids are allergic to peanuts, so we keep it peanut-free and hand out rice Krispy treats and twizzlers!”

Colleen Hoover: “I hand out Diet Pepsi (my beverage of choice) and candy bars.”

William Kent Krueger: “I typically hand out what I’d want if I still trick-or-treated: little candy bars.  I’m especially fond of Snickers, Baby Ruths, and Butterfingers. My usual method of distribution is one for each of the kids standing on my porch, and one for myself.  Boy, do I love Halloween!”

John Lescroart: “It’s all about nuts and chocolate — Reese’s peanut butter cups, Almond Joys, and peanut M&Ms!!! Yum.”

Jamie McGuire: “We don’t hand out candy. We are the trick or treaters!”

Jodi Picoult“Snickers, Three Musketeers, and Twix minis.  But we live on a dirt road and frankly the last time we had a trick or treater was about 20 years ago, because the houses are a mile or so between each other.  So usually I wind up eating all the candy.”

K.A. Robinson: “I’m actually not. I’m taking my son out instead. :) (He’s a dinosaur this year. Just don’t tell him that, he thinks he’s a dragon.)”

Buddy Valastro AKA the Cake Boss: “Chocolate -An assortment of  M&M’s, Snickers, Hershey’s”

Jennifer Weiner: “I am giving out full-size Snickers bars, because I am trying to buy the love of neighboring children!”

It's Monday!! What Are You Reading? - 10/28/13


Hope you have a good week.  

I surprised myself and finished two books last week!!  I usually only get one done.  :)


This is a weekly meme run by Book Journey!

Post the books completed last week, the books you are currently reading, and the books you hope to finish this week.


Books Completed Last Week:

The Sweetest Hallelujah by Elaine Hussey

Tamarack County by William Kent Krueger

Book Currently Reading:  

Gracianna by Trini Amador

I am reading Gracianna for a book tour in November.

Books Up Next:

I am planning to read The Outcasts next while the other books are patiently waiting their turn.  :) 

I had the pleasure of meeting the author in September at a Hachette Book Event in New York City.  Lovely lady.


The books below are not necessarily in the order I have planned to read them.  

I normally read in order of publication or tour date.

And....these are not for reading in the upcoming week.  They are books into and including next year.

The "list" is a means of keeping me organized.  A visual display helps a lot for organization along with my Excel lists.  :)

I added a couple more since last week.
