Reading…I just finished Shelter by Jung Yun and Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi, both which I enjoyed very much. “Enjoyed” being a loose term seeing as they are both darker books. I was truly invested in both, which I haven’t felt in some time. I also read the print versions in tandem with audio versions and audiobooks have been really working for me lately. Now I need a lighter read, so I downloaded Shrill by Lindy West and picked up a copy of Difficult Women by Roxane Gay from my library. My first 2017 release and a short story collection!
Watching…On the “lighter” kick I rented Bridget Jones’s Baby. Yes, it wasn’t great cinema but I enjoyed it thoroughly. I may have even watched a few scenes over and over. You know, Mr. Darcy. And I just got back from going to see La La Land with my girls. Again, it had some flaws but I’m a huge fan of classic musicals and appreciated the references. The minute we got home my girls were on the piano and singing up a storm. Ahhh…the arts.
Loving…audiobooks. They are fitting beautifully in my life right now and I’m getting to read! I have much to say about my renewed relationship with them, I feel a blog post brewing.
Needing…to plan a vacation. We’ve been home bound for a while since the new home and I’m feeling nature/national parks/sightseeing in our near future.
Wanting…to ignore all my work responsibilities and curl up with a good book on this rainy, cold day. So off I go!
