A Reading Life...hosted by Michelle at The True Book Addict, and also inspired by Lisa at Lit and Life--Life: It Goes On...is a meme where we get to talk about other stuff we're doing in our lives along with reading!
Listening To: Lots of podcasts. I just got a new app on my android that allows me to download all my podcasts and will then automatically erase them after I'm done! So fantastic. Star Talk Radio, RadioLab, and Skeptics Guide to the Universe are a few of my favorites!
Books finished last week:
The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson.
- The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova for R.I.P. VIII
- Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
- The Violinist's Thumb by Sam Kean
I'm planning on getting into some more zombie books as Halloween and the R.I.P. challenge are upon me :). Probably Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion, Dust and Ashes by Jonathon Maberry. Movies...zombie horror flicks, of course!
Portlandia and I just finished up Orange is the New Black! So intense; I can't wait for the second season. And we just got a 3D blu ray player so we're watching some 3D stuff :)
I'm getting really excited for Fall. Pumpkin and mulled everything. But that's still a few weeks away. So I've been making a lot of chai tea and green smoothies. I'm sure this will be more interesting soon...
For glue stitches instead of actual stitches for my 4-year-old. I don't know if I could have taken the trauma of an actual sewn in stitch....
Looking forward to:
Fall. Fall colors, mulling ciders and wines. Baking pumpkin breads, hot chocolate, and pumpkin spice everything at the coffee shops. Halloween and reading all the scary books this month and next!
Gabe being a trooper after the glued stitch :)
