Bout of Books was kind of a bust. I didn’t read anymore than usual, BUT I did WIN a challenge! How exciting is that?! (I ended up only participating in one, so it’s really quite surprising.) Thanks to Cait from Escape Through the Pages for hosting a super fun book spine poem challenge!
Books read this week:
- The Engagements by J. Courtney Sullivan — Fantastic, interesting read.
- Close My Eyes by Sophie McKenzie — Awesome psychological thriller!
- Inferno by Dan Brown — Interesting premise, but SUPER repetitious.
I am obsessed with this Amy’s Baking Company stuff. Are they kidding with this mess?! Have you guys watched any of it? Tomorrow they’re having their “Grand Re-Opening”. Can’t wait to hear how that goes — even though they’ve cancelled their press conference beforehand AND they’re losing their PR firm because they couldn’t agree on PR strategies (umm…wouldn’t you listen to the people who do it for a living?). I love how they blame the “Yelpers” for everything like Yelp is an organized structure where people get together and discuss restaurants (maybe it is…but that’s not how I use it).
I went over to see my niece in her gymnastics performance this weekend. Adorable! I also went to an 8-year-old’s birthday party…such a great form of birth control!
On Friday we went to see Star Trek Into Darkness. I only know about Star Trek because of references on other shows. So as a non-Trekkie, I really liked it. Lots of fun, I didn’t feel like I was missing anything, and I even cried a little.
If you have a minute today, send good thoughts to those affected by tornadoes over the last week.
And that was my week! Hope your pre-Memorial Day week is wonderful!
