Tuesday's Reading Recap

Here's my Tuesday Confession: I have been a reading failure this past week! I blame everything on George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series. Not only am I having a reading hangover from the 4,645 pages of time-consuming awesomeness, but my friend Taylore visited over Labor Day weekend and we were pretty much too pre-occupied discussing and watching the series to fit much reading in. Oh, and making shirts professing our love for our favorite characters....

So things I started but didn't finish reading last week:

Reading Related Things I Finished This Week:  
  • Game of Thrones (the tv series, seasons 2 and 3)
  • My "I (heart) Gendry" shirt (which was originally my "You Know Nothing Jon Snow" shirt which was a failure... [thanks, iron-on paper!]).
  • No Featherbed For Me fan fiction (this list just gets more and more ridiculous, right?). 
Non-Reading Related Things I Accomplished This Week:
  •  Ate Indian food, Thai food, Greek food, Japanese food, waffle sandwiches, and more. 
  • Gained 84021 lbs. 
  • Went to Sprinkles Cupcake ATM machine in Beverly Hills but opted for Sprinkles ice cream.
  • Cursed this heat wave we are having in So Cal because I'm a spoiled California girl who can't stand anything over 77 degrees.
  • Got sunburned.
  • Drove by Michael C. Hall's house and yelled curses regarding this terrible season of Dexter.
  • Drove by a lot of other celebrity houses; the only somewhat reading related one was Robert Pattinson's house. Celebrity houses are beautiful but very anti-climactic. 
  • Reached 30 Starbucks stars! HELLO, GOLD LEVEL!!

Things I Plan To Finish Reading This Week:
Speaking of Elisa Lorello's autobiography, I was in LA yesterday and was casually checking my emails on my phone and saw that I received a gifted copy from Elisa herself!!! I seriously freaked out right there at The Griddle!! She is one of my favorite authors and one of the sweetest people I have ever interacted with online that I don't know offline. The fact that she cares about and remembers a little book review blogger like me really means so much to me and I truly cannot wait to start reading this book! I highly recommend anything and everything she writes and only wish I lived on the east coast so I could attend one of her classes! That alone would totally justify going to grad school! BUY THIS BOOK, only $2.99 on Kindle!


  1. haha,,
    you're hard-cord. i might have my jon snow t-shirt

  2. I love those shirts!! Your weekend sounds like so much fun! All the food, celeb houses and gold level!! Exciting! A hangover from GRRM is more than understandable and sometimes breaks from reading are necessary! The cupcake atm looks really fun! Yay for good weekends!
