I think it's time for another edition of...
A Little Bit of Everything Entertainment.
If I had all the time in the world, you must know that I'd do research for these posts all day. I'd read and read and read just so I could share my thoughts with you. But I don't...boo...so my entertainment list is a bit short today.
What I've Been Reading:
Turning the Tables by Teresa Giudice
Are there any Real Housewives' fans out there? If so, you need to get this book. You will love it! As a fan of the show (and even Teresa on the show), I was pumped about reading this book. For those of you who don't know, Teresa is on The Real Housewives of New Jersey and recently went to prison for eleven months because of tax fraud. In this book, she gives accounts of her childhood, family life, and days spent in prison. And I should add she is not one to leave out the details. (Insert that emoji with the big wide eyes!!) I'm telling you...if you're a fan of the show, you'll love this!
Summerland by Elin Hilderbrand
Shay gave me this book a while ago. I was a bit intimidated because it's long. As a mom, it's hard to commit to a big book. Sometimes I'm not sure when I'll be able to pick a book up again, BUT I'm SO glad I read this one. I packed it on our vacation and found myself staying up late to read when everyone else was asleep.
This novel is about a group of high school students who are in a car accident. The girl driving was upset about something and driving recklessly. She doesn't survive so we're kept in suspense throughout the entire book trying to figure out what had happened prior to the wreck. Let me tell you...at the end, we figure it out and it's just good! A great chick-lit read that will suck you right in and have you staying up late even on vacation!
Someone recommended this book to Tab and we couldn't wait to read. With three children in our home, we have a variety of personalities going on over here...mix them in with Tab and I and we're a hodge podge! ;) This book outlines four different personalities and then it shares a story (with about five chapters) and how each personality is special, unique, and needed. One isn't better than the other, which was great for our children to see. We read this with our kids and they could quickly identify which animal they were similar to. Great family time read!
Anchored by Kayla Aimee
You know that spot on Amazon where it says, "People Who Purchased This Also Purchased These Books"...that area gets me every time. This book by Kayla Aimee popped up for me on Amazon and I purchased. It's a story about Kayla's real-life struggle with finally getting pregnant only to deliver a very premature baby extremely early. She then rides a roller coaster of emotions trying to figure out where God is through it all. She is "Anchored" in her faith and shares her story.
What I've Been Watching:
I shared all kinds of thoughts on Fuller House Season 1.
3/5 of our family got to watch this new movie, Zootopia, on board the Disney Magic. Ebby Lee and I missed it so a couple weekends ago we hit up the theatre to watch. I thought this new movie was super cute and entertaining! Ebby Lee was a bit frightened during a few of the scenes. But overall...a cute and kid-friendly show.
What are YOU reading and watching right now?? I love hearing your suggestions. :) I have a couple upcoming trips where I know I'll get some good reading time in, so I'd love your ideas! Thank you!
