My Friday Five...

1.  Books...I have gotten my reading mojo back - woo hoo! So, I was able to read these lovelies this week:



And I've also dipped into my copy of:


2.  TV shows.  Housewives! Okay, so on Beverly Hills it is still about the dog. OMG! I am getting tired of hearing about this dog drama. Who cares?! The dog is okay, so what does it matter if Dorit couldn't handle taking care of it. Why dwell on it?! And yet, I continue to watch. LOL!  As for NYC, well, Dorinda just wants to move forward with Lu, but Lu is not having it. She wants apologies galore and Dorinda is not having it. Oh, and Barbara keeps butting in, because she has nothing better to do. The whole thing is lame and they should all just get over it.  Of course, that's not going to happen, because next week shows D&L&B all arguing about the same thing. Ugh! What is with these shows lately - they all obsess over the same story line week after week. I will say that Ramona's comment about Dennis (Bethenny's deceased bf) not being that smart since he was a drug addict was a bit jarring.  She is always putting her foot in her mouth, but I didn't think she would go that far. You just know that is going to come up in the reunion. Aside from Housewives, I'm all over TWD - it is so good! Maybe they should have gotten rid of Rick a long time ago, because I am telling you that the show has improved so much without him. This past week had me thinking Children of the Corn and it was awesome. Can't wait for the next ep!

3.  Book lust...I want this book so much! I requested it on Edelweiss and can't wait for NetGally gets it so I can request it on there, too. I love Ruth Ware's books - they always suck me in and are so much fun to read. So, I am eagerly awaiting my copy of:


4.  Gym...yep, I'm back at the gym. I stopped going for awhile, but I've decided to start going again. It helps keep my brain focused and it just feels good. So, fingers and toes crossed I stick with it.

5.  Music...I've been listening to Toad the Wet Sprocket. Such a great band! Made me think of when I saw them in concert in college. They were at a festival and it was their last show. It was raining and they played such an amazing set - an unforgettable memory. And now, I hear they are back on tour. So, perhaps a revisit wouldn't be such a bad idea, eh? I bet they still give a great live show.

Hope you have a great weekend!! Happy reading!!

I haven't thought about Toad the Wet Sprocket in years. I used to really like listening to them. And I'm glad you've got your reading mojo back! :D The Riley Sager is one on my list to read this year.

Lark, I know! Me, too! I just got Walk on the Ocean stuck in my head and found myself reaching for their music :) Yes, me too! Thank you :) Hope you like the Sager book - it was fun to read.

Brandie, I liked it a lot. Such a good one. Predictable, but fun. I hope you like it :)
