Week In Review
March 5 – 18
I think I missed doing one of these last week. Last weekend was busy, and with the time change on top of that, I felt like last weekend flew by! This weekend has been quieter and I’ve definitely been getting some good reading time in.
My husband and I discovered that we have Amazon Prime, which means we can finally finish watching Justified! We started watching the show on Netflix Canada years ago but they only had the first two seasons up, so we never finished watching. But we have rewatched the first two seasons this week and will probably spend the afternoon watching the first few episodes of season three.
I am obsessed with that show! It’s so good, and I especially like the dynamic between Timothy Olyphant’s Raylan Givens and Walton Goggins’ Boyd Crowder. Then there are the family dynamics between Raylan and his father Arlo, the tension between Raylan and his ex-wife Ava, not to mention the drama and excitement from Raylan’s job as a US Marshall – there’s a lot going on! It’s a violent and dramatic show, but it has something else to it, some heart and humour, along with fantastic performances, that has me super hooked.
No new books! There are a few on my radar that I will probably pick up for my Kobo in the next week or so (the new Laura Lipmann, Sunburn; The Hunger by Alma Katsu), but I’ve actually been good about trying to read books I already have.
I’m back on track with my Goodreads goal! I’ve finished four books in the past couple of weeks:
White Tears, Hari Kunzru;
The Unholy Cause, Joe Schreiber;
Chaotic Good, Whitney Gardner; and
People Like Us, Dana Mele.
I’m still reading Reign of the Fallen. As much as I love the synopsis and was super excited to read this book, it’s obviously not grabbing me. I am hoping to finish it today.
I’ve also started to read The Terror by Dan Simmons. I’ve recently learned that it’s been adapted by AMC for TV and the first episode will air at the end of the month I think, and I’m definitely planning to watch.
Lots of posts on the blog lately!
My younger sister is posting some cozy mystery reviews and we’re calling it Lil’ Pingwing’s Cozy Corner. She’s reviewed:
Books Can Be Deceiving, Jenn McKinlay; and
Thread the Halls, Lea Wait.
We’ll have another of her reviews posted this week.
I also posted another Supernatural rewatch blog, about S4E5’s Monster Movie.
And I’ve posted two book reviews:
Chaotic Good; and
Time for some more coffee, some reading, and then some more Justified. Happy Sunday!
