WHAT I WATCHED

I was unsure about watching the second season since it isn’t based on the book.  However, once I saw Meryl Streep was a part of the series, I was in!

GOODREADS

Wyoming, 1870. For as long as they have lived on the frontier, the Bemis and Webber families have relied on each other. With no other settlers for miles, it is a matter of survival. But when Ernest Bemis finds his wife, Cora, in a compromising situation with their neighbor, he doesn’t think of survival. In one impulsive moment, a man is dead, Ernest is off to prison, and the women left behind are divided by rage and remorse.

I was listening to this on audiobook from my library but you only get 2 weeks so it expired and I had to finish by reading the book.

GOODREADS

I recently returned from a trip to Japan and fell in love with the food and people.  I received this book from Netgalley.  It is beautiful.  There are lots of colored photos and great descriptions of the different types of ingredients and equipment used.  I also loved how the book explained the history behind the foods featured.  I learned so much about Japanese culinary arts and culture through this cook book.  A definite must have if you are interested in cooking and learning about Japanese food.

A rich, unforgettable story of three unique women in post-Apartheid South Africa who are brought together in their darkest time, and discover the ways that love can transcend the strictest of boundaries.

GOODREADS

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning Richard Russo–in his first stand-alone novel in a decade–comes a new revelation: a gripping story about the abiding yet complex power of friendship.

It’s 1964 in the USSR, and unbeknownst even to Premier Khrushchev himself, the Soviet space program is a sham. Well, half a sham. While the program has successfully launched five capsules into space, the Chief Designer and his team have never successfully brought one back to earth. To disguise this, they’ve used twins. But in a nation built on secrets and propaganda, the biggest lie of all is about to unravel.

Because there are no more twins left.

The Book Blogger Hop is put on by The Coffee Addicted Writer . There is a weekly prompt featuring a book related question.

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION IS SUBMITTED BY Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer.

THIS WEEKS PROMPT IS…Have you ever been called a “book nerd?” If so, how did you react?

My answer:

I don’t think I have been called a book nerd but when I was a kid growing up, my family called me a book worm.  I didn’t care but it didn’t make sense to me because I didn’t know worms could read (do they even have eyes?) and I never saw a worm in any of the books I read! lol

    No, can’t say I have but like you, my family called me a book worm. I feel a bit put out that I’m not a book nerd, what does a girl have to do? lol! 😉 I read, I love reading and always have my nose stuck in my Kindle! Lol! Perhaps us worms should start a support group. 😉

    Hope you have a great reading week, Jo. x

    If You Want to Make God Laugh sounds really good. I’ve been seeing so many great books lately it’s frying my brain. Ha ha. 😄

    I’ve never been called a nerd either. My cousin started calling me Nerda, but that was because because I watched a lot of SciFi films, not because of books. 😛,

    Have a wonderful new week. 💜✨

    Teased about my love of books for sure, but it never bothered me. I am going to have to watch an episode or 2 or Big Little Lies. I listened to the audiobook and everyone seems to love the show. I recently devoured Good Omens and started watch The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 1.

    I was pretty impressed with the Season Opener of Big Little Lies as well. I am really hoping that before it’s all out that Meryl’s character finds out how her son really is – not that it will likely matter though because he’s still her son. I think it needs to accidentally come from the twins to have more impact. So my copy of Good Dog McTavish is coming in the mail today. Not ONE of my libraries had it – but Amazon did 🙂
