For all of you who are in Hurricane Matthew's path, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Our family has lived through two hurricanes, and they are no fun.
After reading a few blogger critiques on This Is Us, I think we all agree - this is a hit in the making. Love the characters and the storylines. I do have to say I was a bit confused at first. I don't do well when a lot of characters hit me at once, and then the story goes back and forth in time. I might not be the brightest bulb, but I eventually figured it out.
I was very excited to see Bull. It is loosely based on Dr. Phil's time as a jury consultant for my pal, Oprah. The Dr. Phil part was not nearly as intriguing to me as the life of a jury consultant. Since the OJ trial, I always wanted to be one. Sadly, the blogging world snatched me up. The courtroom's loss is the blogging sphere's gain.
Anywho... Bull was a disappointment. After about 30 minutes, I changed the channel to something more educational - Real Housewives.
Maybe I should write a book on how to have a happy marriage.
The Mister is a fan, so I am sure I will watch the full season because I am a beautiful, accommodating trophy wife. Another chapter for my book.
Whoa!!! Did you hear about this new series on HBO? Jude Law portrays a young Pope Pius XIII. Jude Law - a Pope? And as if that's not enough bait... how about Diane Keaton playing a nun?! Yup, a nun.
Save me a seat in the first row for this one!!
A friend of mine, who is a fabulous cook raves about this cookbook. She tells me that the photos are magnificent and the recipes are all about small bites that are done to perfection.
Holy guacamole, this one is good. I listened to The Kind Worth Killing on my walks. I know that it's a good book if I take the long way on my strolls. And that's exactly what I did with this one. If you enjoy a good old-fashioned thriller packed with plot twists and a shocker ending, this book is for you.
I enjoyed this one very much. It centers around a few neighborhood families in a subdivision that harbor secrets that are divulged in small pieces. The writing style reminds me of Lianne Moriarity.
What's next on my reading list.
I admit it; I judge a book by its cover.
I can tell this girl and I have a lot in common.
Maria Semple wrote Where'd you Go, Bernadette, so it's got to be good!
This is the third book in Elin's winter trilogy. The series tells the story of a very likable, imperfect family that owns an inn in Nantucket. The matriarch is a national anchorwoman that is loosely based on Katie Couric. I can't wait to read this last installment and yet I'll be sad when I have to say good bye to this family.
Have you read my posts about spending the weekend with Elin in Nantucket? You can read them here and here.
This one is next to accompany me on my walks. It centers around a beautiful woman who appears to have everything including a deep dark secret. I'll keep you posted on this one.
I haven't read a Grisham novel in a while. This one sounds pretty good. A crooked judge is the main character. It will be released at the end of the month.
A woman is found murdered next to her beautifully set dinner table. I'm hooked.
I have read every book that Jodi Picoult has ever written. Some novels I liked better than others. But the one thing about Picoult's books is that I always learn something. This one has a racism theme. Looks like a page turner to me.
This novel centers around a stalker. I thought that if I listened to this one on my walks, I might get scared enough to break into sprints and burn a few more calories.
What can I say?
I need all the help I can get!
What's on your book/tv list?
Until next time...
