Hi Wednesday! It's good to see you.
I've gotta be honest I have been in full on GOSSIP GIRL BINGE WATCHING MODE any time I have a free second so books, other shows, and movies have totally taken a back seat. Tab is watching his own show right now so any week night you can find us on opposite ends of the couch binge watching our own thing. #qualitytime #doesthatcount I told myself when this show is over I'm taking a Netflix BREAK!
I'm positive Netflix is judging me. :)
In the midst of our two little getaways we've been on lately I managed to get a little reading in and am happy to share today.
This book was everything chick-lit books are made of. A guy and a girl who happen to not only work together but despise each other as well suck you right in! One thing leads to another and...the rest is history. :) If you're a fan of girly reads, then I'd recommend it. (Rated R, Grandma, this one isn't for you.)
The truth is I started reading this book about a year ago and it got lodged between my driver's seat and the console. Also known as no-man's land where things go and are never found again. Just ask Sheaffer...one time she lost an earring in my car and it was NEVER FOUND AGAIN. #truth All that to say, I was a quarter of the way into this and then it was MIA. When I got a new car, this book was recovered (but no sign of Sheaffer's earring). In this book, Annie tells of many of her own struggles about "looking for lovely" in herself. The truth is we all have issues, scars, and pasts, but there is lovely inside us all. It was a great read and PERFECT for women. I'd like to add-my junior high self was a hot mess and this book would have been great.
I heart Lauren Graham. In Gilmore Girls, she was my absolute favorite and her character in Parenthood was perfect for her. In "Talking As Fast I Can", Lauren shares the details of her life that led her to Gilmore Girls-A Year in the Life. It was fun reading behind the scenes info about other cast mates. My favorite tidbit was how many of her Parenthood crew she put in those last four episodes of Gilmore Girls. Remember Peter Krause was the park ranger?
This book was a struggle to get into. Once I hit the halfway mark though, I was hooked! It goes back and forth between characters and time periods, so it took a while to remember each character. This is about a missing child in the 1930's. A police officer (in the 2000's) on leave stumbles upon the case and starts digging deep in order to solve the crime from years ago. I'd say as long as you can get halfway then you'll be hooked!
I watched half of this week's episode with my head down and I'm positive I was sweating!! The trench coat, whipped cream, and Backstreet Boys' serenade was all too much! Then the tears with Vanessa?! WHAT was that? I can't figure him out! Be sure to head over to my girl, Sheaffer's blog to read her recap. They're the BEST!
And Gossip Girl...where was I when this show was on the air? The drama, New York City setting, and fun fashion has me HOOKED!
That's what has been keeping me entertained. What about YOU?!
Thanks for stopping by today, friends! XO
