Summer Books and A Movie...

Books...I love having the summer to read as many fun books as I can! I just finished "The Rosie Project" which was a fun, quick read. I kept seeing such great reviews and knew it was not that long so checked it out at the local library. The writing reminded me of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" with a more adult theme and more positive/upbeat. Great for a summer read! (It is like Sheldon from "Big Bang Theory" finding his one and only.)


I also finally read "State of Wonder" which was one of those books that has you thinking about things. At times you weren't sure what you were supposed to get from the book but you enjoyed the characters...then it got really fast paced at the end and when it was over...you really wanted to know what happened to everyone. It is a book that you will like or you might not. I am curious to check out the author's other books now...


Okay...I've decided for my own benefit to sum up what I have read this summer. I'm hoping it will help me pick my next one...any suggestions are welcome but it needs to be a good one. :)

To date this summer I have read 15 books including the ones above...


I really did like them all in their own way...the ones that stick out the most are "The Paris Wife", "Cuckoo's Calling", "Silkworm", "The Fault in Our Stars", "A Hundred Summers", and "The Boys in the Boat." I have to say that all are good depending on what mood you are in when reading. Sometimes I like to read a more serious book but other times I just like some fluff! My hope is to read 2 more books before it is time to prep for school work but we'll see...

 Movie...So I finished the "Veronica Mars" TV series (yes, I'm obsessive) and I watched the movie...


So I thought the TV shows and movies were both great (light and fun...perfect summer watching!) and you totally want to be a Private Investigator after watching it. In the movie...it has some hilarious scenes as Dax Shepard (Kristen Bell's real life husband) has a small part in it and the dancing by Piz in a scene...both are classic and made me laugh out loud...I had to replay both of the two scenes for giggles.

As far as if I would wear a "Team Logan" or "Team Piz" shirt this year (you know I have my "Team Edward" shirt near by...) It is a toss up but going with "Team Logan" on this one...yep I think he might make the ole' celebrity boyfriend list. :)
