Get ready for Halloween, my pretties! As a part of the Bewitching Trick or Treat Blog Hop, I’m offering up some man candy and a giveaway.
I’m counting down the sexiest vamps, weres, and other creatures of the night. Because if I ever had to be turned, one of these hunks better be doing the honors.
My teenage wishes incarnate. David Boreanaz as a “cradle robbing creature of the night” would be my top vamp choice.
From: True Blood
My adult wishes incarnate. If you need further proof, check out my Man Candy Morning with Joe Maganiello.
From: The Vampire Diaries
One look into Ian Somerhalder’s baby blues and I would totally be under his thrall. I’m a sucker for a bad boy with a softer side.
From: Blade Trinity
With a body like that and a sharp sense of humor, Ryan Reynolds stole the show, even with Dominic Purcell in the movie.
And for my Halloween treat to you, I’m giving away one $10 Amazon giftcard to a lucky commenter.

If you hadn’t heard, Oct 1st finished off Banned Books Week. It was a time to celebrate the books deemed too provocative, too revolutionary, and simply too much for the public to handle. Whether it’s the “adult content” or the sentiments contrary to those of a certain government, authors have pushed boundaries to their limits over the centuries. Walt Whitman’s poetry was scandalous back in the 1800s for being “overtly sexual.” If only those critics could have foreseen what we write today! I’d surely be cast from society What amazes me is that the books that were once banned have become pieces of history that changed nations. Sounds grand, I know. But it’s true. Here are some of the banned or challenged books that I’ve had the benefit of reading and the ones I’m looking forward to reading.
- A Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
- House on Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros
- Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
- Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
- The Jungle by Upton Sinclair
- The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
- Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak

Share time! Which banned or challenged books have you read?
I know I’ve had almost as many posts today as I did in the entire month of June, but little did I know that it’s National Kissing Day. So here’s one more. Here’s an excuse for you to grab your man and plant one on him. Or if you’re really ballsy use it as a ploy to kiss that crush of yours.
It’s amazing how much a kiss can not only tell you about a person, but transform a decent date to a spectacular one and a friend into so much more. There’s a reason people compare it to being on a roller coaster, the moments of anticipation as you get closer, the way your heart beats faster just before your lips touch, and the free fall that takes your breath away. Time seems to stop and you’ve lost track of just how long your lips have been on his. Give a guy a great kiss and he won’t be able to get it off his mind. Now go for it, find your guy and give him a kiss he won’t forget. I’m talking fireworks, people.
Go. I dare you.
Get ready to “awwwww” here’s a compilation of some of the best movie kisses!
Now do tell, which kisses were your favorite?
