This week....

I'm reading....

I mentioned last week that I was starting to listen to Taste by Stanley Tucci and I am really enjoying it.  It is a real pleasure to listen to Tucci narrate his own story!

I also started reading Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr. I loved his previous book All the Light We Cannot See and can't wait to see the Netflix adaptation whenever it comes out. So far, I am not very far in and it is a big book, but I am enjoying it so far!

I'm watching...

We finished watching Searching for Italy. In fact, I skim watched it again on the weekend. Can you see the Stanley Tucci connection? 

We also watched Ready Player One the other night. It has been a number of years since I watched it and I enjoyed revisiting it.

I did start watching the second season of Sweet Magnolias tonight. Monday night is my night at home by myself so it was the perfect night to start it.


We have had a number of weekends where we have been able to spend time outdoors with good friends and family and this weekend was no exception. We attended the wedding of one of my oldest and closest friends. It was a lovely wedding, right on the beach, and very casual. I even had the opportunity to wear my wedding flip flops again! We ate fish and chips for lunch. and the location was so nice. It was at a beach on the other side of the city which I have never been to before. The water was cool and clear, the sun was shining. Perfecto!

  1. Happy reading! Thanks for posting, first time dropping by your blog. - Lyn

    1. Thanks for stopping by Lyn. Hope to see you again.

  2. Cloud Cuckoo Land looks good! I always love Netflix adaptations of favorites.

    Enjoy your week, and here are my WEEKLY UPDATES

  3. Aww, that beach wedding sounds fun and sweet. I have Cloud Cuckoo Land on my TBR shelf. Now I need to find time to read it.

  4. Sounds like you had a great week. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  5. I loved Tucci's memoir! Now I'm eager to read Cloud Cuckoo Land. I was going to listen to it, but I may go with the print edition instead. It sounds a little confusing.

    1. I am really enjoying listening to Tucci's memoir Les. And now i have found some podcasts where he both presented and was a guest. I will be listenening to him for months at this rate.

  6. I loved both "Cloud Cuckoo Land" and Tucci's "Taste." And "Ready Player One" -- both book and film -- also. Usually, you and I don't read the same books, but this is an exception. I hope you enjoy them all as much as I have.

  7. I enjoyed Ready Player One too when I saw it (and I enjoyed the book, of course!). I may have to re-watch it too! I have heard only good things about Cloud Cuckoo Land and so will have to add it to my wish list. The wedding sounds nice! I am glad you were able to go. Have a great week, Marg!

    1. I was definitely glad to be ableto attend the wedding. It was a beautiful day!
