Five for Friday

1. I devoured Something Like Normal by Trish Doller in half a day. Okay, it's kind of a slim book, but it never felt lacking, in my humble opinion. I was even satisfied with the ending. It felt authentic. The author did a great job of getting a guy voice down, I even heard a dude narrating it in my head. (I may need to get that checked out). Warning: there is drug and alcohol use, foul language, and sex, but nothing is graphic.

2. It was over a hundred degrees here ALL week long. Needless to say, we didn't go out much. And air conditioning is now my best friend. As weird as it is to say (or write), I can't wait until it goes back down to the 90s.

3. I watched Mirror Mirror yesterday (you know, that other Snow White movie that came out this year) and it was super cute. Predictable, cheesy, and sugary enough to give you a tooth ache, but I enjoyed it.

4. On the writing front, things are still progressing. They're a little bit slower since I've hit the middle and am kind of going through a bit of writer's block, but I'm working through it.

5. They have Downton Abbey season 2 available on Hulu Plus! I watched the first two episodes this last week and already I'm nervous about the fates of certain characters. I'm sure I'll shed a few tears.

Happy weekend, All. Keep hydrated!


  1. I wanted to rent Mirror Mirror yesterday but it was all sold out. :( Heard good things though. I think it'd be fun to watch with the kids. And my AC has been my BF too! Man, it's HOT!!!

  2. Have a great weekend! Thankfully it's not that hot where I am... only around 70F.

  3. I have Mirror, Mirror on my Netflix list. It's been rotten hot here too and still no air-conditioning. Have a good weekend!

  4. I had to buy Downton Abbey - both seasons. I watched them in marathon style. I'm smiling right now thinking about the final scene. Thanks for the book rec. My plan is to make a dent in my TBR pile over vacay.

  5. I have Something Like Normal. I was disappointed how slim it was, especially since it's expensive. Can't wait to read it.
