We did finish our kitchen renovations – if you’ve been following that saga on twitter/Instagram and I might do a before and after post soon. I’m really happy with how it turned out. I’m waiting to see if it makes me cook more – or better. lol
Despite my previous post about my out of control TBR pile, I added more books. *shame* But look how pretty! I’m really excited about When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon, The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli, I Believe in a thing Called Love by Maurene Goo, and The Valiant by Lesley Livingston but they all look great.
Non-bookish related fun -
We watched A Series of Unfortunate Events in Netflix and it was so much fun. Dark, smart and very well acted. I haven’t read any of the Lemony Snicket books or seen the movie before so I was a little lost at first but I can see why everyone is so in love with it. My favorite thing is how they didn’t talk down to kids. If there was a difficult word or new concept (like dramatic irony) they weaved the explanation seamlessly into the story. It has already been picked for two more seasons so yay!
And I know I’m way behind the cool kids with this one but we just started Stranger Things, also on Netflix. I’m really enjoying it so far.
We saw Hidden Figures (fantastic!) and the final Resident Evil (not really my thing but Kevin enjoyed it) at the movies.
So what have you all been up to? Any good book/movie/tv rec’s? I hope to have a few reviews up next week. I’ll be reading My Not So perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella next and hopefully it’s the kind of escapist reading fun I’m looking for right now.
And my little fulffball, Fonzi, has to go in for minor surgery on Friday so please send good vibes out way if you can. Please & thank you!
