Halloween is such a fun holiday. I know not everyone celebrates it though. I have a few few fun memories of Halloween.
When I was around 5 I was a Devil for Halloween (remember those 70s costumes? Plastic costumes that are hard to walk in and not rip…with a mask you can’t see or breath out of? oh those were the days) I had speech problems as a child. I couldn’t say Devil, instead I was a Debil. So cute!
I remember going trick or treating the year I found out I was pregnant. I was 21! One neighbor told me I had to perform a trick in order to get a treat. I told him I was trick or treating for my unborn child I just found out I was pregnant. He laughed so hard! He said that was good here have 2.
When my daughter was younger, she was always called the baby. I forget what age we stopped that but it was way past time to do so. She had to of been around 5 for this memory. She was batman. I let her pick out her own costume and didn’t care if it was a “boy” costume. My daughter’s name is Jenna. Everyone commented on her costume. They would say “ohhhh such a cute little batman!” My daughter would always reply with “No! I’m baby batman Jenna!” She always got extra candy for that one too! Halloween can be so fun.
Now on to the hop giveaway! I am giving a way a hard back copy of the book The Way by Kristen Wolf.
Here is a picture of the cover and summary:
Anna is a fiery tomboy living in ancient Palestine whose androgynous appearance provokes ridicule from the people around her and doubt within her own heart. When tragedy strikes her family, and Anna’s father—disguising her as a boy—sells her to a band of shepherds, she is captured by a mystical and secret society of women hiding in the desert. At first Anna is tempted to escape, but she soon finds that the sisterhood’s teachings and healing abilities, wrapped in an ancient philosophy they call “The Way,” have unleashed an unexpected power within her.
When danger befalls the caves in which the sisters have made their home, Anna embarks on a hazardous mission to preserve the wisdom of her mentors by proclaiming it among ordinary people. Her daring quest and newfound destiny reveal, at last, the full truth of her identity—a shocking revelation that will spark as much controversy as it does celebration.
Anna’s story is one of transformation, betrayal, love, loss, deception, and above all, redemption. Readers will cheer for this unforgettable protagonist—and for debut novelist Kristen Wolf, whose beautifully written book both provokes and inspires. A compelling mix of history, myth, and fantasy, The Way is a fascinating exploration of the foundations and possibilities of human spirituality.
