A Good Read

Happy Friday Friends. 

Just a quick post to talk about BOOKS and such.... What are you reading?  It's winter, I want to be cold and hunkered down with hot soup (or hot coffee) and a good book!

I just finished this:

By: Mindy Kaling from the Office.  (didn't meant to cut that out of the photo).  I got this book for Christmas from my father in law.. how awesome is he!?!?  Every year he gives every kid (im a kid in this scenerio)  a BOOK!  And boy have i caught on, cause this year- i knew what i wanted, and i requested this little gem above.  It's a very fast read and oh so funny.  I have always loved her on the office and wondered how she got so fancy to be one of the head writers of the show and Executive Producer - (these are things i wonder about)...
But she answers all questions, and will make you laugh while doing so! You like Tina Fey's Bossy Pants right?  This is up there with that.  I promise. 

So once i closed that book, i immediately got on the.......

"Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" train.  I know i am late to this game, but i really didn't have any interest till now.  I wanna see that movie!! But i gotta finish the book before i do.  When i was home for Christmas- Holly gave me her copy of the book because she was not interested in reading "so much jargon"  - I understand... it is a lot of "jargon" at the beginning of the book- but oh boy.... does it get good after you get through the first... hmmm 90-100 pages... THEN the story gets going.  I'm currently on page 110- so i have a lot to go.  But i am very much looking forward to gettin' cozy and diving into this book this weekend.

Before those books, i finally finished the Hunger Game Trilogy.... Hello!!! I CAN'T WAIT FOR THAT MOVIE!!!  Let's watch the trailer shall we?

EEEEEP!!! So exciting!!!

PS.  I realized i forgot to write my predictions for the Golden Globes on my little blog- like i did last year.  I would have been right on a lot of them, dang!   But don't you worry, i am gonna get my ducks in order for my Oscar predictions.  I have to do some catch up on some of the movies, so i'll report back.  It's the little things folks.

PPS.  Last night i finally finished the Wonder Years Series... 6 seasons... of Kevin and Winnie.  SIGH.. sad it's over.  Thinking of what to watch on the ole Instant Netflix next.  Andrew and i have been obsessed with it.  We've watch... Portlandia.  and The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret  both so funny among others...   I am thinking Friday Night Lights could be next for me?  We shall see... decisions, decisions!

Happy Weekend folks!

Happy Reading!

Happy Netflixing! or
