Cheers to the Weekend 8.17.18
A busy weekend for us both, this week! We're both out on mini-vacations, so expect travel stuff in our stories and over on our instagram. Rikki is focused on using her getaway to unplug and spend quality time with her family before classes start back up, and I'm headed to the Oregon Coast to meet up with my family for a weekend of celebrating the life of my late grandmother in lieu of a funeral. We both spent decidedly too much time agonizing over which books to pack; I'm sure you can relate. What are you up to this weekend?
Around The Web
Does anyone else feel this way about choosing a big seasonal read? We're both considering ours as fall approaches.
On the importance of libraries. Especially #8!
These secret suppers are basically our dream dinner parties. So lovely, and making us crave the change of the seasons.
Looking for the next Game of Thrones? Try one of these by POC.
Did you guys know that apps for organizing your book club existed? Mind. Blown.
The forthcoming 2019 movie adaptation of Little Women looks amazing!
Just about the most adorable faces to be found on Bookstagram, by a reader, mama, and teacher.
A simple, yet appealing lifestyle feed, we look forward to Anne's posts and her excellent taste in books!
Jessica's handle is @booksandmargaritas. Need we say more? All kidding aside, she has a cohesive feed filled with bright colors, plants, and lifestyle vibes we can't help but love.
What We're Reading
Michaela- I'm spending the weekend with Where the Crawdad's Sing, just as soon as I finish the delightful Girl, With Guitar. I always think I will read a ton on vacation, and I never do, so we will see how far I actually get. I'm also currently halfway through Metamorphica, which I am LOVING.
Rikki- I finished Fahrenheit 451 this week and freaking LOVED IT, along with Anne Bogel's, I'd Rather Be Reading, which was purely enjoyable. Currently, I'm reading my way through Circe, and while I enjoy it, I find myself needing to step away often to break for something else. This book is far outside my wheelhouse. I'm also reading Inside Out & Back Again, and have just begun The House on Mango Street.
