0 A Secret Sisterhood, June Reading List, and Hidden Figures: Last Week In Review (49)





Welcome to Last Week In Review. Or should I say, Last Two Weeks in Review. We're heading into summer and a part of me is glad. I don't really like the hot summer temps though. I'm more of a mid-70s than a 90-degree girl. But there's more of a relaxed feeling when it comes to summer. Most of the kids activities are on hiatus, so I don't feel as rushed as I normally. So here's to summer--A season of relaxation, a season of reading!



Over the last two weeks I finished a few books: Understanding the Stars by X. Culletto, narrated by Lori Prince; Steeplejack (Alternative Detective #1) by A.J. Hartley; Mothers and Other Strangers
by Gina Sorell. All good books, I'll have my reviews up soon.









As for the books I'm currently reading: I finished up a few books and haven't added any new. I'm currently still reading A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman. And though it pained me to do so, I've put a hold on Moby Dick for the summer because on of my children is off working his first job at a summer camp. I might still read it though. I haven't decided.
















I've also added two more books:






I've not really watched a lot of television or movies, but what I have watched is pretty fantastic!



A few months back I read 84 Charing Cross Road, I had no idea at the time, but there was a movie made on 1987 staring Anthony Hopkins, Judi Dench., Anne Bancroft. 


I've been dying to see this movie since it came out in theater's. It was just as good as I had hoped it would be. I highly recommend it!
