Project 52, week 25
On Monday I linked up for Show & Tell and took you around my Home.
Then on Wednesday I linked up for What’s Up Wednesday, which might just be my FAVORITE monthly link up 😉
The TV series Pretty Little Liars finally came to an end this week and its on my favorites list because I’m just glad its finally over LOL!
Yesterday Hank & Hal decided to start the day off by rolling in some unknown animal poop (likely turkey, maybe goose), so we had to bathe them before 7am! While that certainly wasn’t may favorite way to start the day, life with these 2 beags is 🙂 #DogMom To make up for the rough morning we went for an exciting walk and followed up with homemade banana blueberry frozen treats! And Hal’s T-Rex pose is my absolute FAVE
This month I barely squeezed out 2 books. Follow me on GoodReads over here. I set a goal of 30 books for the year, the first couple months I stayed ahead but these busy summer months have been a little trickier, I may end up reading like a wild woman the last few months of the year to hit my goal!
The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close
Only a handful of pages into this book I said to my husband ‘Oh this is going to be good!’ The Hopefuls follows a couple through their transition from Manhattan to D.C. as the husband pursues his career in politics after working on Obama’s campaign. I loved how the story was written and the insight it offered to politics and D.C.
I loved the peek into the politics of D.C., it is generally a topic I find myself interested in but I totally felt I could relate to Beth and loved seeing/experiencing it through her eyes. I also really liked that the secondary theme was on the main couples relationship with one another and with others. It felt real, it felt raw, and I thoroughly ENJOYED it!
13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher
So right now it seems everyone is reading and watching this series on Netflix and I had to join in. I actually remember my sister reading this years ago and she told me I should too but for some reason I just never did until now. It is a really quick and easy read, I finished it in only a couple days actually!
You might know the book focuses on suicide and the 13 reasons that led to Hannah Baker taking her life. I don’t want to get into the controversies of this topic but I do think it was a really good book. I have experienced suicide a handful or more times in my life and I didn’t feel as though this book was out of line. It really made me think and opened me up to just how much everything we do or say affects not only ourselves but others more than we may think. I plan to watch the series soon too!
