Digit-al Dozen Does: Books - The House with a Clock in Its Walls

I am finishing up Book Week with another childhood favorite.  I happened upon this book during one of my many afternoons at the library.  It is the first of a series and actually lead to other break off series.

My final book is The House with a Clock in Its Walls by John Bellairs.

From Goodreads:
Lewis always dreamed of living in an old house full of secret passageways, hidden rooms, and big marble fireplaces. And suddenly, after the death of his parents, he finds himself in just such a mansion--his Uncle Jonathan's. When he discovers that his big friendly uncle is also a wizard, Lewis has a hard time keeping himself from jumping up and down in his seat. Unfortunately, what Lewis doesn't bank on is the fact that the previous owner of the mansion was also a wizard--but an evil one who has placed a tick-tocking clock somewhere in the bowels of the house, marking off the minutes until the end of the world. And when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead on Halloween night, the clock only ticks louder and faster. Doomsday draws near--unless Lewis can stop the clock.

I started my design with two coats of OPI Funky Dunkey.

 The images for my design came from W116, MM02 and BM311.  I used Milani Black Swift.

I think this is the best design of the week!  I love the numbers with the clock!

I hope that everyone enjoyed this month's theme! I know that I found some new books to read and got to reminiscence about some old ones!
