I was busy all week with *real life* so there wasn’t any time for blogging or reading
Kevin and I got a lot of yard work done but that has pretty much left me a scratched up, achy, allergy ridden lump.
We also took a little time for fun and saw The Lego Movie. It was really cute, with a nice message at the end.
I’m all caught up on both seasons of House of Cards. Holy cow! That show is intense. Everyone is so awful but I have to say – I have a soft spot for Claire, even if she’s basically the most evil person on the show. What an incredible character though! I remember watching Robin Wright as the sweet Kelly Capwell on Santa Barbara! & of course in The Princess Bride. This is a totally different role.
I watched The Descendants (with George Clooney). It’s a really slow, quiet kind of movie and I was bored at first but I ended up really liking it.
We bought this gorgeous bookcase. I didn’t need it – I had no room for it (I had to donate a piece of furniture to make room lol) but I’m in love. I literally just stand there staring at it several times a day. I still need to add and arrange more books but isn’t it pretty??
It’s on wheels so I could hire someone to wheel my next book selection over to me!
Close up of my two favorite bookish gifts. The *flowers* are made from the pages of my favorite book (Wicked Game by Jeri Smith-Ready) and the bookmark was a Christmas gift made by a friend. (sorry if you’re offended by the F-bomb bookmark – but it makes me laugh.)
I received Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson and To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Haan from Amazon Vine for review. The Ring and the Crown from Disney Hyperion for review and bought Murder of Crows by Anne Bishop.
When I finally got a chance to sit down and read after 7 days, Figment was not amused. He hates being ignored and then proceeds to shake out his drool all over my books.
Mom…mom…mom… What? was it wrong of me to slobber all over your book??
I hope to be back with a few reviews next week but I’ll need to pick up my reading pace if that’s going to happen!
