A Reading Life (29)
Look...two weeks in a row! My, didn't that weekend go by fast!
Listening To: The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian...pretty good, except the narrator's voice is somewhat annoying.
The Boleyn Bride, Brandy Purdy
The Grip of God, Rebecca Hazell
Outlander, Diana Gabaldon (TuesBookTalk)
Middlesex, Jeffrey Eugenides (Read-a-long at Unputdownables)
The Gendarme, Mark Mustian
Doctor Zhivago, Boris Pasternak
Wide Sargasso Sea, Jean Rhys--My Classics Club Spin selection
The Light Between Oceans, M.L. Stedman
Queen Elizabeth's Daughter, Anne Clinard Barnhill
Watching: The True Detective finale was quite exciting. I heard from my friend that it's going to be kind of like American Horror Story, a different story line each season so McConnaughey and Harrelson won't be back. Kind of bummed, but also excited to see who they get for the next season. I recorded last night's Once Upon a Time return and the new shows, Resurrection and Believe, but haven't watched them yet. More on them next week. Was glad that one of my favorite shows is back on Mondays...Bones!
Making: I had a couple of misses last week. I mean, they were okay (Chicken Stuffing Casserole and Grandma's Salisbury Steak Casserole), but the consensus around the table was no repeats. haha! Can't win 'em all!
Grateful for: my boys. There really isn't anything in my life that brings me more joy than my two sons.
Looking forward to: my boys' spring break in a week which means no daily driving for me for two weeks. Woot!
