WHAT I WATCHED

These docu-series on Netflix are awesome.  I loved the 1980s one the most.  They cover all kinds of categories like, tv, music, technology, and world events.  Each episode is short which is nice too.

WHAT I READ THIS WEEK

This is the third book by King that I have read and it was even better than the first two.  There was a bit of magical realism mixed in with some serious realism.  The story follows five teen agers and their very difficult lives and we discover the root (see the book cover for the pun) of all of their problems.  This book addresses poverty, racism, and family.  I highly recommend this thought provoking and pulls at your heart strings book.

GOODREADS

The Peachey family is in crisis. No one cooks dinner, no one picks up the dirty washing and the kids are always late for school. All because Mum has resigned from being Mum and taken up yoga instead. She’s in the tree pose; everyone else is in the doghouse. Except McTavish, a rescue dog with a difference, on a mission to sort his new family out…Filled to the brim with Meg’s wry humor and beautiful prose, this is a story for the young and the young at heart.

    I like that drink!! Disaronno and Scotch have become my new reading and writing partners. I try not to write after a hard day because I noticed the reviews were quite flat.

    Great wrap up post. Didn’t they make a film based on What’s eating Gilbert Grape? I’m not very good at having more than one reading book on the go although I can copy with an audio and print/ebook. 😉

    How do I get myself psyched about writing a book review? Nothing special but I don’t ever put it off – I found out the hard way that the longer between finishing reading and writing my review, the harder it gets.

    The yummy drink and snack would probably be a cup of tea and choc digestive or a whole punnet of blueberries. 😉

      I love 80s music too. The episode on the music was really good. So was the one on technology. That was when the computers were starting to be a thing. They had some pretty accurate predictions on how computers would affect us in the future.
