Recent Book Reads, Shows, and Podcast Love!

Happy Weekend! Looking for some good reads? Here’s what I’ve been up to since March…

Reading:

I adore Alice Munro. Such an excellent short story writer.

I’m a Michael Connelly fan. Great structure, kept me reading.

I love love Elizabeth Strout. Her sentences are so gorgeous. This is sad but good.

Watching:

PBS masterpiece, John Adams, Chicago PD, Hart of Dixie (only because of Lemon Breeland!), and currently it’s Amazon’s Vikings.Β The battle scenes are so violent that I have to constantly close my eyes, but I’m drawn to the culture and the curiosity and clash between paganism and christianity. Also: Lagertha.

Podcast Love:

New York Times, Modern Love, Happier with Gretchen Rubin, and KM Weiland’s How to Help Writers Become Authors.

And…that’s all folks! What are you reading, watching, and listening to?

Have a great weekend!

    I wrote a book review post a few weeks ago, but you’ve given me some new ones to tackle. My dad recommended Vikings also, but good to know I’ll have to cover my eyes quite a bit. I also think the culture is fascinating.

    Silence of the Lambs? Yikes!!!

    I’m reading A Gentleman in Moscow. Beautiful writing, but I’m struggling to see the point. My book club buddies encouraged me to finish – the second part is supposed to be great.

      re: Silence of the Lambs. I KNOW…I don’t know why I picked it up but I’m telling you, there’s a reason it’s a seller! All in the name of story structure πŸ™‚

    Thanks for another wonderful round of recommendations (including Bottle Bridge, *blush*). I’ve been meaning to read The Invention of Wings for years! And that Ramona and her Father cover makes me want to revisit my childhood favorites. And oh! Mrs. Frisby! I ADORED that book as a young reader!
