Welcome to the latest Things I’m Obsessed With!
I have all these amazing books ahead of me to read and I feel so incredibly lucky to be a book blogger and to get to read so many of them early. Fellow bloggers, do you ever feel that way? Like you look at your TBR stack and just think, “Holy crap, there are so many! But they all look so amazing and they’re all mine!” And I feel especially blessed that publishers and authors and publicists value my opinion enough to seek it out for a review. It’s overwhelming in the best possible way, but I hope I never forget how lucky I am. And I get to go to BEA every year! (Starting in 2016, I get an extra week vacation at the day job, and I plan to start trying to go to ALA every year it’s on the East Coast or in Chicago. I think West Coast ALAs would be too expensive, but East Coast ones? Yes, please!)
I have been on a bit of a horror movie kick recently (always) and am completely obsessed with the movie Oculus. It has so many of my triggers in horror movies (weird things in mirrors, weird things happening to faces, weird things happening to eyes and things happening to your teeth) and it’s a completely confusing movie that keeps you completely off-kilter. It’s amazing and I love it.
Also, we’re about a month away from the big Halloween boxset release on Blu-Ray and I am SO EXCITED. I feel like movie for movie, this is the best horror series ever. There are only two movies that I think are pretty bad (and one of them, Halloween 6, is redeemed by the producer’s cut, WHICH IS INCLUDED IN THE DELUXE BOXSET!). Nightmare on Elm Street may be my favorite but I think Halloween is the best.
I have currently discovered the joy of nuts.com (thanks to my friend Erin). Everything I’ve ordered from them has been amazing and I have a hard time saying exactly what my favorite thing is. I love the peanut butter cups and the caramel puffs and the black cherry gummy bears and and and and and. (Yeah, they have a lot of healthy snacks as well, but I haven’t tried those. I DID get their marshmallow bits, however, which is basically like a bag full of the marshmallows from Lucky Charms with none of the gross cereal parts. And it’s just as awesome as you’d expect it to be.)
So what are you obsessed with this week?
