Week Recap - Fun in the Sun

Memorial Day was so much fun, along with a day off of work, it was my husband's birthday! Paul and I went fishing all afternoon, soaking up the sun and we got lucky with a lot of catches! We finished the day with our favorite restaurant, JL Beers, and a root beer float!

I also tackled Game of Thrones this week. It was a lot better than I expected and a lot less confusing. I think watching the HBO show really helped me remember names and who people were. I was worried about being really confused.

This Week I Read:

Upcoming Reviews:




  1. So impressed you finished GoT in a week! I had the same exact fears/reservations, but after watching the show, I feel more confident giving it a try (after I make more of a dent in my For Review pile!) Have heard such incredible things about the series and would like to get ahead of the show (at some point) especially now that they've started deviating a bit from the books, or so I've heard!

  2. Wowee, Game Of Thrones in a week? It's on my TBR list this month, after 'Stolen Songbird'. I can't wait! I'm glad you had a nice time!

  3. Happy birthday to your husband! I tried GoT but got confused, haha! I guess I should try watching the show first. Can't wait for your review of Since You've Been Gone! :)

  4. Happy birthday to your husband! You guys are so adorable together! :) Did you like Lola and the boy next door?! It's one of my favouites but I prefer Anna and the French Kiss :P

  5. I read the first Game of Thrones right after starting the show, and had to finish it in a week before the next episode. :) Fishing looks like a blast. Yeay to MN summer!

  6. I'm looking forward to your thoughts on Since You've Been Gone!

  7. Oh I'm glad you had a great time with your husband for his birthday. Happy reading and have a nice week!

  8. It looks like you had a great time! :D I hope you liked Lola and the Boy Next Door. Stephanie Perkins is definitely a favorite. We badly want to read Since You've Been Gone too. It looks so good and we've been seeing so many good things about it. That Vanessa Wester book looks really cute too! :D

  9. Sounds like a lovely long/birthday weekend.
    I haven't read or watched GoT yet. But people keep telling me to watch the show first too. Like you said, it makes it easier.
    LOLA! <3
