Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 10/4/21 — 10/10/21


This was a successful week!  It was also a busy week.  I took my dad to the chiropractor on Tuesday.  We got the new dishwasher installed on Thursday, after three months of delays and stress.  And, through it all, horrorthon continued!  I’m so proud of everyone who has contributed and I’m so thankful to all of you who have taken the time to read!

We’ve got three more weeks to go until Halloween!  They’re going to be great.  This is my favorite time of year.  Supposedly, on Tuesday, the long-promised storms will start to arrive.  There’s nothing I love more than rain in October.  Well …. no, actually, there are things that I love more.  I mean, that would be kind of sad if I loved a weather event more than my boyfriend or my family.  But, with all that in mind, I am definitely a fan of the rain.

Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 9/27/21 — 10/3/21


Things got a little bit busy here at the Shattered Lens, didn’t they?

Well, it’s to be expected! It’s October and that means that it’s time for our annual Horrorthon! Basically, I spent September resting just so I could make it through this month. (Actually, I spent most of September resting. On September 27th, I posted 18 reviews, just to prove that I still could.) October is totally exhausting but this month, more than anything, reminds me of why I love sharing my thoughts on movies, books, and all the rest. If I can turn you onto a new movie or if I can encourage to give a movie second chance, I feel like I’ve done my work here. We’re only three days in and I already I remember why I love this month, this site, my collaborators, and all of our readers.

Seriously, than you for reading. All of us here at the Shattered Lens hope you enjoy what the site has to offer this October!
