October 20-26, 2014
Nothing too exciting happened this week. I traveled a bit and was able to spend some time with my grandparents, which is always great, especially since my grandmother shares my love of books, although she indulges mostly in historical fiction (she’s the one who got me interested in Philipa Gregory novels). My mom surprised me with Sprinkles cupcakes later in the week from a trip she took, which was a really fantastic treat since I haven’t had them in quite a while- their S’mores cupcake is amazing!
What I’m Reading and Watching
Added to my shelves:
I’ve been waiting all month for my library to get this in, and as soon as it did I was able to get my hands on it! I’m really excited to start this contemporary novel that I’ve heard it truly moving…contemporary isn’t always my go-to genre so I love when one surprises me!
I’ve been meaning to read this title for a while but was always a little creeped out by the premise (and the pictures!) but I finally picked it up this month. I can truly say this book is absolutely nothing like I thought it would be…but it’s actually really good!
My boyfriend and I discovered Chopped was on Netflix, and I wanted to try a new cooking show since we love Kitchen Nightmares. Chopped is fantastic, and I found myself getting pretty invested in who won each episode! It’s also fun to watch with other people and just marvel at the crazy ingredient combinations they challenge the chefs with!
Around the Blog
Monday: Landline by Rainbow Rowell was a huge hit for me.
