Weekly Update (4/25/15): What I’m Reading + New Books!

Uncategorized

I’m hopelessly hooked on Hart of Dixie.  I wouldn’t give up my Netflix subscription now for anything.  It’s such a cute show and I love how ridiculous all the characters are.  Zoe’s antics are hilarious and Lemon’s plots make me smile. 

I’m almost finished with season 3, which is the last one on Netflix.  I plan on watching the entire Gilmore Girls collection next.  I missed out on that show as a teenager, so I’ve got to catch up on it now.

Here’s what I’ve been reading.

New Books! (Stacking the Shelves):

I bought Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon and I’ll be sharing my thoughts on it soon.  I borrowed A Moveable Feast from the library, but I haven’t started on it yet.

A big thank you to Penguin Random House for sending me YOLO Juliet!  I started reading it already and it’s a lot of fun! 

What I read last week:

The Old Man and the Sea was thought provoking and interesting.  I’ll be sharing my review of it soon.  Steal Like an Artist took about 30 minutes to read, but had some great advice. 

DNF (for now):

I don’t know if my tastes are changing or if my abandonment of books can be blamed on my pregnancy brain, but by all accounts, I should have liked this book as much as the first.  I was so excited to read it too…

I marked it as DNF for now, but I may return to it in the future when my brain decides to come back from vacation (if it ever does) because I like this series and I don’t want to abandon it.

What I’m currently reading:

Illusionarium is breathtaking!  It was worth the wait.  YOLO Juliet is so fun and I’m enjoying it a ton.
 

What I’m reading next:

I’m really looking forward to reading The Island of Dr. Libris and Finding the Worm.  I don’t know anything about the Kathy Reich series, so I’m a little skeptical of Terminal, but I’m always willing to give a book a chance.  

What are you reading?

    You will love Gilmore Girls!! I'm doing my every few years run through the entire series right now myself. And Hart of Dixie was awesome. Did you know they used the same set as Gilmore Girls? Same gazebo in the center of town!

      I didn't know that! I'm excited to watch Gilmore Girls. Everyone loves that show and I feel like I've missed a right of passage somewhere by never seeing it.

    Very fun! I haven't seen Hart of Dixie, but I'll have to check it out. It's so hard to find good shows sometimes!
