It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 02/01/2016

Hosted by Book Date

Hello! Hi! Hey! Excuse my excitement but I've spent most of the past 5 days in bed with a brutal cold. I am delighted to be upright again!

You would think that being ill would give me all sorts of time for reading. Sadly, you'd be wrong. I couldn't do much more than stare at a screen. But before I took to my bed like some sort of romance heroine I did manage to start Notorious RBG by Irin Carmon & Shana Knizhnik. It captivated me from the get-go and I can't wait to get back to it. 

I'm never sure what I'll read next but one book recently hit my doorstep that has me thoroughly intrigued. I mean, look at this little piece of gorgeousness!

Margaret the First by Danielle Dutton
Isn't it glorious? The picture doesn't do it justice but I nearly swooned when I saw the cover. Will it be my next read? Only time will tell. 

Have a great week, everyone. I'd love to know what you're reading on this fine Monday! As for me? I'm going back to bed. Zzzzz.

The Relentless Weekly Wrap-Up 01/24/2016

Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope you've had a spectacular week. Here's what I've been up to:

Ha ha nope.

I have a beautiful caramel apple french toast casserole in the oven as I type this. I hope it's as tasty as it sounds! 

My lack of focus is unstoppable! I managed to read Giant Days (A+, highly recommended!) and a few pages of Hamilton. That's it. 

Hi, I'm Oliver. I'm also ridiculously cute. 
Star Trek, always. But you don't want to hear me nerd out about that every single week! We've been devouring Arrow on Netflix. Oooh, it's gooooood. I hope to talk my husband into watching The Flash next.

(That's a new word, look it up.) I've started keeping track of my eating and exercise with My Fitness Pal. I've made a real commitment to pedaling on my new stationary bike every day. It's fun, believe it or not! (I wonder how many calories are in the french toast casserole that I'm about to devour, ha ha.) 

In Conclusion:
It was a good one, folks. I hope you can say the same. Let me know what you've been up to. What have you been reading, eating, watching? Are you are buried in snow? Tell me everything!
