Hello, and welcome to Last Week in Review. The place where I talk about what I read, what I watched, and other general updates.
I've been working a lot lately, so it has really put a dent in my reading time. I did manage to finish The Global Novel. I hope to have it reviewed soon, so you'll have to wait a bit for my thoughts. I also continued reading Jane Eyre. I've read this novel many times over the years, and yet it still manages to surprise me. Every time I read it, there's always something, a character, a scene, that I didn't really notice before. It's almost like reading it first the first time. And finally, I'm listening to An Uncommon Courtship. Sadly, I haven't made much progress.
Apparently, several of the television shows I watch came back and I didn't notice. So, needless to say, I had some catching up to do! iZombie made it's return two weeks ago, and I couldn't be happier. I've missed this show so much, and that's saying a lot for me because I'm not a fan of the zombie genre in general. Another show that's made it's triumphant return is Agents of Shield. This series, I've been waiting for that has felt like a short distance from an eternity is the new season of Doctor Who. It was great and I love the new companion(s). We also watched the series premier of Class, right after DW, and I thought it was good as well. In case you can't tell, my family and I are a bit of science fiction geeks. And I'm finally all caught up on Call the Midwife.
My husband and I had Friday off, so we decided to go dress shopping for our daughter. She's recently had a growth spurt, and I've been having a hard time finding clothes that both fit her and make her look like the twelve year old that she is. Clothes shopping is not her favorite thing at all. She didn't want to be there at all. And after five minutes, I didn't either. It's basically me picking something off the rack and her shrugging her shoulders when I ask if she likes it. She's a jeans and t-shirt girl, and while I respect it, sometimes you have to wear something a little nicer than a t-shirt. Something that I thought would take us just an hour or two ended up taking a lot more time. But finally, she found something that she could live with. And it's like the heavens opened up and smiled down on us.
And the reason for this non-bookish rant? Because somewhere out there, someone has had a similarly frustrating experience, and I just want to say: You are not alone.
Also, The Phantom of the Opera music is still stuck in my head.
Don't forget to socialize with me!
Have a great week!
