Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts

1.  Is anybody else FREAKING OUT because Christmas is in about five minutes, and we haven't started shopping yet?  Being an adult and having responsibilities really takes a lot of the fun out of the holidays.  Remember when the thing that gave you the most anxiety around Christmas was whether or not Santa was going to find out about all those times you cheated at games with your brother and only leave you coal in your stocking?  I'd give anything to have that feeling back.

2.  Speaking of Christmas presents, our four-year-old niece gave us her wishlist.  It consists of 1)a unicorn with white fur and a rainbow tail and a tiara, 2)a cat with rainbow fur, eyelashes and a tiara and 3)a dog with rainbow fur, eyelashes and a tiara.  I asked if all three animals needed glitter as well, she said yes.  Thank God for Amazon and Lisa Frank!

3.  If one more person says "Liberry" to me today, I may throw up.

4.  If there is one item besides books that I consider an impulse-buy, it's lipgloss/lipstick/lipbalm.  I buy so much of it, and I don't even wear it all the time!  This is a cry for help!

5.  Reading in bed is a lot more difficult now that I have a kitten.  She appears to love books as much as I do, except she prefers to use them as pillows.

6.  Edward sprayed the backyard a couple of weeks ago, because we had some anthills.  Well, they're back and they want revenge.  They're coming in through a small hole in the threshold of our back door into the dining area.  I keep having to move the cat food.  I bought some indoor ant spray that's supposed to be safe for pets, but I guess all that means is that it doesn't actually kill anything.  Any advice?

7.  We're watching Sharknado with a bunch of friends tonight.  I'm probably going to need alcohol.

8.  About a week ago, a man came to the library to sign up for a card.  He asked me if I was afraid that all the libraries were going to shut down soon since "the written word has disappeared."  I'm always disappointed when I hear that anyone thinks there won't always be a need for libraries, but I was way more disappointed by the fact that this man thinks that the "written word" is only used in books.  He knows that even if somehow people stopped reading physical books completely, there would still be words on things like street signs and advertisements, right?  I mean, we'd still need to WRITE THINGS DOWN.  I'm thinking this is a man that doesn't do a lot of contemplative reasoning, because he tried to prove his point by asking me if I even saw people reading newspapers anymore.  I just pointed to the man sitting in the armchair about ten feet away, who was reading the paper.

This Week I Am


Pretty much the same stuff as last week.  Although, I also read

The Stench of Honolulu
by Jack Handey

Remember old episodes of SNL, where they would have a little commercial of sorts with a beautiful background of a beach or a sunset or a field or something, with text rising up the screen?  It was called Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey.  Well, this is that guy.

The book pretty much reads as one long Deep Thought in story form.  There's not a lot of substance to it, it's just meant to be funny.  And it was.  It only took a couple hours to read, so I would recommend it if you need a good laugh.

Listening To

The Civil Wars
The Civil Wars

I think this duo is considered to be Country music, but it's not that awful Pop/Country that's going on right now.  Their sound is more folksy.  They have a couple songs on the Hunger Games Soundtrack (one of them is with Taylor Swift) that are really good.  I've used some of their songs on my Game of Thrones playlists.


I seem to be in the mood for cartoons lately.

Also, Edward and I are switching off between watching episodes of Spaced and Sherlock.

Benedict Cumberbatch is the best.  And his hair!  Every time I see a picture of him with his hair blond for other projects, I get so disappointed.  One of the downsides to watching two British series at once is that I've started thinking in a British accent again.


This coat I just bought at Target.  Last night the temperature down here dropped to the 30s.  I bought my last winter coat two years ago at a Burlington Coat Factory sale.  All the buttons came off, and I'm way too lazy right now to sew them all back on before the cold sets in.  I bought this one when a friend said it looked nice on me.  I'm really glad I listened to him, because it's nice and comfyThe hood is a bonus, because I'm not good with hats, and my head gets cold.  And it was only $40.00.


We got a kitten over the weekend!  Her name is Heidi and she's amazing.

This pretty much describes our relationship.
So, all I've been doing lately is a lot of snuggling and playing with cat toys.

Here's to another good week!

Book Review

The Last Winter of Dani Lancing
by P.D. Viner

Disclaimer:  I received a free advanced copy of this book from the publisher through LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review.

Sad as it is, the world loves a good mystery involving a young, beautiful, seemingly innocent woman who is brutally raped and murdered.  Shows like Twin Peaks and Pretty Little Liars are evidence enough, although I'm sure there are other shows, movies and books that I don't know of or have forgotten.  Is it just the juxtaposition of feminine innocence and drug/lust-filled corruption that we find entertaining?  Or is it supposed to be a lesson to young women everywhere that THIS can happen to them if they fall from grace?

Sorry, I'll just get off my soapbox for a moment.  This book had a similar storyline.  It starts decades after Dani's murder, and we get to see the effects of grief on her parent's marriage and sanity.  Dani being their only child, Jim and Patty are unable to move on.  Patty because she is driven by an obsession to find Dani's killer, and Jim because he has now lost both his daughter and his wife.  Jim even interacts with hallucinations of Dani in his solitude.

There is also Tom, Dani's best friend who always wanted to be more.  He's joined the police and moved swiftly through the ranks, trying to solve crimes similar to Dani's rape and murder. 

The narration switches between all three characters' memories of Dani's childhood, disappearance and murder, and current events.  Tom has the bittersweet job of informing both Dani's parents that advances in DNA technology have caused cold-cases, like Dani's, to be re-opened.  Obviously chances are still very slim, due to the lack of knowledge when it came to taking samples when Dani died.  But, that doesn't stop Patty from throwing away the rest of her life in a search for the truth. 

As the search goes on, Tom and Jim reveal more and more about what they know of Dani's life at the time of her disappearance.  Unfortunately, what they think they know and the real truth aren't always the same.

I had a hard time putting this book down.  Not because I cared so much for Dani, or wanted vengeance for her; but because I really did start to care about her parents.  I found their emotions and actions (even though Patty's were often unwise) realistic considering the tragedy they had gone through.  I really wanted to like Tom as well, but he was a little too pathetic.

This Week I Am


Adulting: How to Become a Grown-Up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps
by Kelly Williams Brown

A nice, light read for anyone whose technically an adult, but isn't sure if they're acting like one.  There's a lot of good advice in here for anyone who hasn't lived on their own before.  Some of the tips seemed a little "Duh," but I guess we weren't all born with responsible instincts.

There's also a lot of decent etiquette tips.

Step 99: If you forget someone's name, try to trick them into saying it.

Step 107: Don't tell strangers about your problems

Step 157: Do not tell the Internet what you think of your job

If only everyone on Facebook would read this, I wouldn't have to block so many of my own friends from my news feed.

I'm only about halfway through.  But, I just started the chapter on money, which should be pretty good.

Reading Lolita in Tehran
by Azar Nafisi

After seeing this book get turned in to the library about a million times, and swearing  I'll read it later, I decided to go ahead and check it out.

So far, I like it.  I love both books about books and  memoirs of other cultures, so this seemed right up my alley.  

Nafisi started a secret literature class in her home for seven of her female students in an effort to give them a place to be themselves, and study books they might not normally get away with in the strict schools in Iran.

September 2013 issue of Vogue

I'm pretty much in love with Jennifer Lawrence, so I bought this back in August without even bothering to flip through it first.  Of course, the September issue is always the best anyway, so I figured it was a good investment.

It's taken me over a month to read, which is just a little sad.  But, in my defense, I've been really busy lately!

Slip dresses are back.  They look a lot nicer than they did in the nineties, so I'm a little excited.

Also, I'm now obsessed with this bag by Versace
It's only about $2800, so I'll just get two.

Also, I just bought S. by JJ Abrams and Doug Dorst.  And I'm so excited!  I may actually have to put off some of the other stuff I'm reading to devote to this.

Listening To

I usually listen to podcasts while I get ready for work in the morning.  Currently, I'm trying to catch up on episodes of Throwing Shade.  If you aren't listening to this show, you need to start doing so immediately.  If you're like me, you like to keep up with current events, but you hate talking politics with people, because things get so heated and serious.  I hate the awkward pause AFTER a politics conversation when you have to figure out how to lighten the mood again.  Bryan and Erin strike the perfect balance between talking about today's issues, and making fun of themselves and everyone else. 

As far as music, I've been listening to the new CD by The Piano Guys and Birdy's first album, which is perfect music to clean your house to.


Old episodes of the Venture Brothers.

My Netflix queue has about 90 shows/movies on it.  Is this normal?  Does anybody else have near that much?


Just bought this hoodie on Modcloth.  You can also buy it in red.

It's probably one of the best purchases I've made in awhile.  It's really comfortable.  I even took a nap in it earlier, and it was AMAZING.  The weather is only JUST starting to get cool down here.  And even then, it's only cool in the mornings.  By the afternoon, it's in the 80s again.  A light jacket like this is perfect.  I wish it came in more colors.


We did a LOT of work on our kitchen last week.  The tile in both the entryway and the kitchen was unfinished, so we worked on that.  I finally finished painting the baseboards in there and I painted the back door as well.

I really don't like our cabinet doors, but it's probably going to be awhile before we can replace them, so I'm trying to appease myself by picking out new drawer knobs and pulls. 

I'm loving these ones from Anthropologie right now.

Here's to a good week!

Fun in Advertising

Yesterday, I found this advertisement in the September issue of Marie Claire.

It's an ad for birth control.  But that's not important.  What's important is the terrible Photoshop that's taking place in this bathroom.  All the kids in the bathtub look the same age.  I guess that's possible.  But, I think it's really unfair that they make their slightly older, blond brother bathe in the sink just because he's different. 

Also, THAT SINK.  Is the sink deep enough for him to be in it that far?  Why would anyone believe this scenario?  Did the lady taking this picture realize that her family was complete because she looked at her five beautiful children and felt fulfilled?  Or because they've destroyed her sink?

Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts

Christine at BookishlyBoisterous hosts this weekly link-up.  So get over there and join in!

Two of postcards I bought in The Dusty Bookshelf.

1.  This weekend, Edward and I flew to Kansas City.  We were running a booth for the company he works for at the Mother Earth News Fair.  The actual fair itself was in Lawrence, Kansas; about a 30 minute drive from Kansas City.  Lawrence has some amazing indie bookstores.  We visited The Raven Bookstore and The Dusty Bookshelf, both of which I would be happy to live in for the rest of my life.  Of course, we broke our book-buying ban and picked up a few cool titles.  And I couldn't visit Kansas and NOT buy another copy of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (I collect cool copies of as many Oz books as I can find).  I also picked out a bunch of fun postcards, like the ones above, to hang up in our library at home.

2.  While checking my stats on Blogger today, I noticed that the phrase "penis shower" has led at least TWO Google searchers to this blog.  I tried Googling it myself and came up with nothing, so who knows.

3.  I really don't think there is such a thing as "too many towels."

The cardigan I just bought at H&M.  It has elbow patches!

4.  The weather is finally getting chilly down here!  I'm beyond ready for heavy sweaters and boots. 

5.  The weather change also gets me in the mood for cooking, so I'm probably going to start going through all my cookbooks.  I can't wait to try out some new soups and casseroles!  I'll probably try to work on my baking, too.  I need more patience when it comes to cooking.

6.  I've had crazy urges to go thrifting lately.  But, when I get to the store, I always get so overwhelmed by HOW MUCH STUFF there is to go through before you start finding treasures.  I guess I need more patience all around.

7.  I wish that I could get away with doing more book-themed presents for Christmas.  The bookish friends and family members that I DO have are so picky, that I stress about choosing books for them.  I don't really blame them, though.  I'm pretty picky too.

8.  Do you guys think I use too many commas?

Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts

Christine at BookishlyBoisterous hosts this weekly link-up, so get over there and join!  Unless you don't want to be cool like the rest of us.

1.  We recently purchased a (slightly) used washer and dryer from a friend of ours, to hold us over until we've saved up for something new.  Well, the washer kept stopping in the middle of cycles and shouting error messages about the "sensors," or whatever.  Edward called a repair company to try to get an estimate.  And, after giving them the brand name and model of the washing machine, the man on the phone simply said, "No.  I don't do those anymore." 

Fortunately, it was something we could fix ourselves!  But, I would advise you to avoid the Whirlpool Cabrio washer.

2.  On Sunday I made another deal with myself to stop buying/checking out new books until I finish all the ones I already own.  I've already checked out two new books.  I regret nothing.

3.  I've heard a bunch of amazing things about Mark Z. Danielewski's House of Leaves.  But I'm honestly way too scared to actually read it myself.  So, I'm forcing Edward to read it and tell me everything.  Hello, Nightmares!

4.  Edward has to go to Kansas City, MO this weekend for work, and I'm going with him.  Anybody know anything fun to do there?  I hear the antique and thrift stores in the area are pretty awesome. 

5.  Today, at work, a man asked me how many times you were allowed to read a book.  I thought he was asking how many renewals he had, but he actually wanted to know if I thought someone should be ALLOWED to read the same book more than once in your lifetime.  I told him that I thought you should read a book as many times as you wanted, if you enjoyed it that much.  He was very disappointed in me.

6.  I am obsessed with this bar cart from Target.  But everybody I show it to acts like a total buzz kill and points out that my house already came with a bar.  Ummm, I wouldn't actually use it for a bar, duh.

Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts

Christine at BookishlyBoisterous is hosting this weekly link-up starting today, so get over there and join!  Unless you don't want to be cool like the rest of us.

Image from

1.  We just bought our house this summer, so this is the first year I will host our group's official Halloween party.  I'd really like to rock the hell out of it.  Have you guys seen all the cool Halloween stuff they have at Target?  Some of it I can easily see myself using year round.

2.  Sometimes I look at my To-Be-Read list on LibraryThing and just become completely overwhelmed.  Surely it should be a good thing that I have THIS MANY books I would like to read, right?  Ugh, I know, First World Problems or what?

3.  You guys, we need to calm down on all the pumpkin-flavored stuff.  Otherwise, we're going to be all pumpkin'd out by Thanksgiving.  And then we're going to throw up when we try to eat pumpkin pie and won't be able to eat anything pumpkin flavored for at least a DECADE!  (This happened to me 15 years ago, so I know.)

4.  America, please let your children read books.  It makes me so sad when you come to the library and show up at the circulation desk with a whole bunch of DVDs, and your five-year-old is crying because he wanted an ACTUAL BOOK TO READ, and you said, "No."

5.  Sometimes I get tired of carrying a purse, and I just want to wear a fanny pack.  And I don't care who knows it!  Tory Burch says it's okay, so get on board.

Image from

6.  I love magazines so much right now.  I just want to buy ALL THE MAGAZINES and take off work for a week until I've read them all.

7.  How old is too old to put stickers all over everything?

This Month In Fiction

The Catcher in the Rye
by J.D. Salinger

So, I finally read this.

Holden's just this guy, you know?

Read more reviews about this book on LibraryThing.

The Basic Eight
by Daniel Handler

I love this book.  Let me just repeat that; I LOVE THIS BOOK.  I already knew that Daniel Handler was amazing, because he wrote A Series of Unfortunate Events under the pseudonym Lemony Snicket.  But anybody that makes me question my own sanity over the course of a novel deserves the title Genius.

First of all, where does this man come up with these names?  The narrator in this novel is a teenage girl named Flannery Culp.

The Basic Eight is the unofficial name of Flannery and her main group of friends.  They're starting out their senior year of high school.  And before the end of the first semester, SOMEONE is going to get murdered and Flannery is going to be arrested for it.  We just don't quite know how or why.  Yet.

This is not a YA novel.  At least, it's listed under adult fiction in the library.  Which makes sense, because it's a little more graphic than the typical teen mystery.  These kids are having sex at really inopportune times.


Awesome Quotes

"Relax," she said.  "You will be wise.  You're young.  You can't have everything right away."

Today she was wearing, and getting away with, a cape.  A cape.  No one else could wear a cape to school; people would think they were pretending to be a wizard or something.

...the singer snarls, and the drums kick in, the full band in full force, the bass crackling like the feel of cold cement on your back as you lean against a building you hate, a building you have always hated, to kiss a man you love and have always loved.

 Adverbs: A Novel
by Daniel Handler

This "novel" is really a series of short stories about love with connecting characters.  I enjoyed a lot of the stories, but I think this is something I'll have to reread before I can fully process everything that happened.

At some point Daniel Handler mentions that there may be more than one character with the same name, which just totally threw me off.  I was already confusing myself a little bit trying to place how everyone fit in with each other's stories, so that didn't help.

I don't know how he's able to get inside the mind of everybody in the whole world, but he should never stop.

This isn't my favorite of Daniel Handler's, but you know you're going to read it anyway, so just do it.

Awesome Quotes

All alone, unwitnessed, there is no one else to believe it, the way paths cross in the sun.  Love is this sudden crash in your path, quick and to the point, and nearly always it leaves someone slain on the green.  I killed the bird and I never saw Keith again and so I am alone this morning with blood on my shoe.

This is love, to sit with someone you've known forever in a place you've been meaning to go, and watching as their life happens to them until you stand up and it's time to go.  You don't care about yours.  Why should it change, the love you feel, no matter how death goes?

Love - is this something we can learn to do again, and if so, when will that time arrive, even on a bad day?

It is not the diamonds or the birds, the people or the potatoes; it is not any of the nouns.  The miracle is the adverbs, the way things are done.  It is the way love gets done despite every catastrophe, and look - actually look! - the potatoes have arrived!

She got herself a glass of water and drank it even though she also had to pee, and this is even another thing like love.  We need things and also to get rid of them, and at the same time.  We need things, and the opposite of them, and we are so rarely completely comfortable.

This Month In Non-Fiction

Dirty Secret: A Daughter Comes Clean About Her Mother's Compulsive Hoarding
by Jessie Sholl

Reading this book is like listening to someone who has been holding their breath for about thirty years suddenly release it.  Jessie Sholl tells us everything; the bad and the even worse parts of growing up with a parent who is a compulsive hoarder.

Watching the reality shows about hoarding, you get a brief glimpse at the way one person's hoarding can affect everyone in their family, but you don't really get any details.  Jessie's mother's hoarding not only affects her daughter; it also affects her daughter's husband and his career (particularly when they all get Scabies), her daughter's friendships, her ex-husband and his new wife, and her son and his relationship with all the rest of his family.

Those shows always give you a vague description of the outcome of the treatment, and whether or not the person in question is able to triumph over their hoarding.  But what about their kids?  What if they don't get any better?  How long should you wait, or try to help, before it's time to let go and try to save yourself?

Chocolate & Vicodin: My Quest for Relief from the Headache That Wouldn't Go Away
by Jennette Fulda

As someone who has suffered from migraines for over ten years, I thought that I would easily be able to identify with Jennette.  False.  As bad as my headaches get, they eventually go away.

I can't even begin to imagine that kind of constant pain.  Especially when it's in your head, where you are.  Jennette tries every doctor and every medication you can think of, all to try to destroy the headache that is trying to destroy her life.

If you're a victim of chronic pain, this book will probably help you feel less alone.  If you're not, it's a good reminder that your situation could always be worse, and we should all be more understanding of our friends and family members that have to go through this.

Can we please get some more funding for headache research?

Who Wants To Watch Pretty Little Liars With Me?

Season Two: Episode Twenty-Five

It's Finale Time!

True Story: I'm watching this episode right after the last one with all the fucked up dolls.  And my husband decided he was going to bed, so I asked him to please turn on all the lights and hide my niece's Dora the Explorer doll because it was standing in the next room staring at the doorway.  So he went in and as soon as he picked up that damn doll she started talking and we almost shit ourselves.

Thanks, Pretty Little Liars.  You've ruined my life.

The news is on at Spencer's house and everyone is talking about Garrett.  Mariska Hargitay found out that Jenna was the one who turned in page five.  Hanna is a genius as usual and says that whoever killed Ali may be slowly getting rid of everyone involved, like Ian and Garrett.

Now Melissa is in here all, "I knew Ian wasn't the killer."  Blah blah blah.  She just took Aria's froyo. 

What a bitch.  She knows about the Jenna thing.

That's a cute sweater though.  Damn.

A texts to ask for his/her phone back.

And a messenger arrives with invites to a masquerade ball.

It's hosted by the "Rosewood Junior Society."  Junior Society of What?

Who Wants To Watch Pretty Little Liars With Me?

Season Two: Episode Twenty-Four
If These Dolls Could Talk

Spencer is sleeping on someone's couch, and ALISON is digging around the ground next to her, looking for the duffel bag!

This has got to be a dream!  She's apologizing to Spencer for not telling her about Jason being her brother, but she's being real cryptic about the bag clues, so thanks for nothing.

Spencer must be pretty drugged on pain pills.  The back door has been open all night and her pill bottle is still open.

Wait, what's Melissa doing here?  She feels safe enough to sleep there now?

Things I Learned Last Week

1.  You should probably measure your bookshelves before you commit to arranging them in a certain way around the room you've designated as your library.  Otherwise, you may discover that they don't fit that way, and you might freak out.

2.  If I start freaking out over a furniture issue, taking a break to eat dinner before going back into that room is a good way to calm down and regroup.

3.  My bookshelves look better now that I have grouped them in a different way.

4.  I'd forgotten how much of a time-saver it is to take all my laundry to the laundromat!  It almost makes me want to take all the money we're saving for a new washer and dryer and just go wild at Target.  But then I step in a small puddle of mystery water at the laundromat and change my mind again.

5.  Pizza is always wonderful.  Always.

6.  There are some great music apps out there.  Everybody download Songza immediately.  Somewhere out there is a group of magical geniuses who create playlists for every mood and situation.  Plus, it's free.

Who Wants To Watch Pretty Little Liars With Me?

Season Two: Episode Twenty-Three
Eye of the Beholder

Aria told that guy at the end of last episode that she was a friend of Vivian's and that she hadn't seen her since Vivian gave her the coat.  The guy (Duncan) gave her his number.  Now what?

Jenna shows up in a chauffered car, holding Toby's hand.  She had the operation already on at least one eye, because it's bandaged up.

Who Wants To Watch Pretty Little Liars With Me?

Season Two: Episode Twenty-Two
Father Knows Best

So I guess Maya ran away and Emily got called into the police station so they could see if she knows where she is.

Hanna is trying to be nice about the whole thing, but I don't think Emily wants to talk about it.

Melissa is telling Spencer that she's been talking to Garrett because she needed someone to talk to about Ian.  She's still confused about how the man she loved could have been a murderer.  Now she thinks that she may have told Garrett too much.  Duh.

She's always crinkling her forehead.

And she also says that she thinks that Mr. Hastings reaction to Ali going missing was very strange, and that all the fighting their parents were doing around that time stopped as soon as she disappeared.  So what is Melissa saying?  That Mr. Hastings has something to do with Alison's death?

Melissa may have texted Ali a few times telling her to stop flirting with Ian.  She confessed doing so to Mr. Hastings.

Neither Melissa or Spencer really believe that their dad wasn't being blackmailed by Alison.

Who Wants To Watch Pretty Little Liars With Me?

Season Two: Episode Twenty-One
Breaking The Code

Spencer won't tell the girls exactly who gave her the money and the girls are just going to let that go?  I guess they just really want to know who A is.

Mona is pissed now because she was supposed to go shopping with Hanna and she's bailing.

And Mona just got a creepy text.  From A!!!

Who Wants To Watch Pretty Little Liars With Me?

Season Two: Episode Twenty
Ctrl: A

I guess this is Emily's first swim meet since being back on the team.  And Maya made her a poster!

And Caleb has his laptop back?  I wonder how that happened.

Sounds like Spencer has been staying at Aria's.

Did the cops come to watch the swim meet too?

No, they're here to confiscate Caleb's laptop.  What the hell?  Can that just happen.  Caleb needs to get a lawyer.  Spencer better start talking to her mom again.
