Welcome to another Coffee Chat, in which we share bookish and not so bookish thoughts. Head on over to Bookishly Boisterous to add your link.
Rainy days have kept me curled up and reading…and watching movies. But I’ve also enjoyed some outings, like breakfast at Marie Callender’s this morning. I was craving French Toast, so I took my book around the corner and ordered some.
- I finished reading my Author Review Book, Not Here, by Genevieve Nocovo. (Click title for my review).
- Earlier in the week, I read and reviewed Daisy Jones and the Six, by Taylor Jenkins Reid, a NetGalley ARC. The book will be released on 3/5. (Click title for my review).
- When Big Little Lies was shown as a miniseries last year, I had saved it on my DVR. I watched it again, as Season II is coming, and there will be an unexpected new cast member: Meryl Streep, as Celeste’s mother-in-law. Doesn’t that sound good?
- I wonder what new issues will come along, and what the characters will still be addressing…
- I haven’t been tempted to reread the book, though. I tend to watch movies over and over, but rereading books is not on my to-do list. I have a short stack of books I might like to reread someday, but I doubt it will happen.
- Today is my granddaughter Aubrey’s 22nd birthday, and she is finishing out her senior year of college in May. Last month, she and some friends took a vacation, which included a stop at this lovely spot.
- Next Thursday is her “twin cousin” Fiona’s 22nd birthday. I like this photo of her: she always has interesting poses.
- On the weekend, I enjoyed another Prime video that has been around for awhile (since 2016), but I had never seen it: All At Once is the story of an artist who takes in the daughters of his friends after they are killed on 9/11. They leave Manhattan and settle in Buffalo.
- The story begins with one girl a teen, while the other is twelve. They push back a lot, rebelling against their guardian’s choices. Typical growing pains with extra angst.
- Today I started reading my library book, The Making of Us, by Lisa Jewell.
That was my week. Did you enjoy any special adventures or really good books?
