Hey, y’all! It’s time for our irregular-AF check-in on various things. To that end, what are you currently reading?
I just finished The Beekeeper’s Promise (Fiona Valpy) and WOW. Even if WWII-era historical fiction isn’t your thing, this one’s worth a read. What a moving story.
In fantasy, I’ve really enjoyed The Keeper Chronicles by J.A. Andrews. Can’t wait for the next book!
Last year, early in the year, I read Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand in the Sun, and Be Your Own Person by Shonda Rhimes. If you never picked that one up, I highly recommend it. I don’t read as much nonfiction as I used to, and I generally shy away from any books written by popular-at-the-moment public figures (meh), but this one is worth your time.
My “To Read” pile is ever-growing; I think I’d need a few extra lifetimes to get through everything…but I’m always up for suggestions. I don’t usually read horror/anything with extremely graphic violence (I end up with vivid nightmares), but almost anything else is fair game, so I’d love to hear about books you’ve recently enjoyed!
I don’t watch much TV (though I did catch up on seasons 4 & 5 of When Calls the Heart recently — was not expecting that show to rip my heart out and stomp on it but there ya go, heh)…is there anything else good on?
And movies…again, I don’t go often (partly because crowds, but mostly because it’s so freaking expensive compared to spending a couple bucks to rent something on Amazon or watch on Netflix in the comfort of my own space!) but I would like to see the new Mary Poppins movie once it’s available to stream.
There are those who find my taste in movies/shows almost childish, and I understand where they’re coming from — but I have to be careful about the entertainment I choose, because it stays with me and I feel it so deeply, even though I know it’s just a story brought to life onscreen.
Anyway…let me know what you’ve enjoyed reading or watching lately!
