April is proving to be as good as I hoped it would be. And I happy to share that I finished two books in a week. That is how many I read in the last month.
What I read this week
1) Alias Grace by Margret Atwood – I was so excited about this book but kept putting it off worrying what if I din’t like it. And guess what, I LOVED it. I hope I get to write a review soon for the book. And then start with the Netflix series.
2) Love hate and other filters – I read this book also as part of the A – Z reading challenge and it has been the talk of the Twitter world. I stayed up all night to finish it.
What I watched this week
Did anyone else see Netflix’s adaptation of Anne of Green Gables and feeling as irked as me? Why on earth would they want to change a sunshiney positive book into dark and melancholic? Damn you Netflix!
I gave in and re-colored my hair with (Wait for it) violet peekaboo streaks. I love it and hopefully they won’t run out any soon.
I have kept up my running schedule. I missed it just one day during the week and that is not due to my laziness, which is a wonder.
It is my best friend’s birthday today and though we are not living nearby, we spoke. So once again Happy Birthday, girl.
Around the blogosphere
I got back to blog hopping. If I missed your blog and you can leave me your link to your blog here.
Here are some of the posts / articles I loved online during the week.
1) Book storm Girl’s posts never fail to make me chuckle. And her latest post on avoiding death by reading is worth a read.
On my blog
The week on my blog was far from full but it beats from a week of silence right?
The last Sunday Spotlight was on One with March wrap up and no other news!
I did a review shots on A mix of Poetry, cartoon and a dash of business strategies
I will be linking today’s post with Caffeinated reviewer’s Sunday post Meme.
