The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Amazon | Goodreads

PART of the BookSparks Summer Reading Challenge 2017 (here) - yup, going backward to do a little catchup.


Love Muffin and Chai Latte
by Anya Wylde
-Romance, Comedy
Amazon | Goodreads

PICKED this up for sweet giggles after reading Sophia Rose's review of the second book in this series at a Delighted Reader (here).

AND watched: on Netflix

Ugly Delicious (2018)
Netlix series, season one
Stars: David Chang, Peter Meehan
-Documentary | imdb | my rating: 5

Chef David Chang travels around the world tasting food from different cultures.

LOVED the mix of food and food history with American Asian perspectives.

AND watched: in theatre

Book Club (2018)
Director/Writer: Bill Holderman
Writer: Erin Simms
Stars: Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Mary Steenburgen
-Comedy | imdb | my rating: 4

Four lifelong friends have their lives forever changed after reading 50 Shades of Grey in their monthly book club.

BOOK lover in me could not resist a book club related film. Fun chick flick with great cast ;-)

Best F(riends) 2 (2018)
Director: Justin MacGregor
Writer: Greg Sestero
Stars: Greg Sestero, Tommy Wiseau
-Comedy, Thriller | imdb | my rating: 4

As Sestero's drifter makes a run for it, he finds himself on a desert expedition, where wild characters and dark foibles intersect. As his misadventure teaches him about friendship and loyalty, Wiseau's mortician surfaces a surprise or two.

THE stories continues with lots of Tommy-isms. Love his positive vibe.


* comment and TELL me what you have acquired for your shelves recently

Thanks for stopping by :-)


  1. Awesome haul. I like the covers for your books.

  2. That Maven Burger sounds delish! And Best friends 2 is totally new to me, but looks kinda good?

  3. I love the photo. That latte does look fancy. I dusted a bunch of my shelves this week, but I live in a dusty place, so they already need dusting again. It’s a never-ending battle.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  4. I need to do a little cleaning myself. It would be nice to have a bit more space. How did I miss National Hamburger Day? Sounds like you had a good week!

  5. Yay for a latte with the kiddo. Ha! Glad you were able to grab up Love Muffin and Chai Latte.
    I want to watch the Book Club movie, too. Same reason. :)

    Have a good week!

  6. That latte looks amazing! The series on Netflix sounds like a lot of fun, I will check it out this weekend! Book Club also sounds like so much fun!

  7. I want to see Book Club so much!! I like the Love Muffin and Chai Latte book, that looks cute!! Have a great week!

  8. I love the movie poster from Best Friends. I may have to check that one out. Looks like a wonderful haul too. Ugly Delicious might be interesting but some food shows creep me out.

  9. Ooo the latte looks yummy. I want to see Best Friends. We've been catching up on DVR'd shows and not much else. I hope your week is wonderful!

  10. I really want to see Book Club. It looks so good. I'm doing some spring cleaning too. I hope you have a great week!

  12. I LOVED Book Club...and I'm curious about Best Friends.

    Love that fancy latte photo. Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  13. I got the freebie you did. It looks good. I have been slooooooowly working on spring cleaning. But more, I was resting up and dealing with all kinds of little tasks I never seem to do. This past week I took a staycation. Anne - Books of My Heart

  14. Great week you had! I've been hearing good things about the Book Club! I need to check that movie out soon!

  15. So many great books and I love the look of the latte. Her hair color is amazing! I really want to watch Book Club. It looks fun and has the word Book in the title so I can't resist it. Have a great week!

  16. Glad to see you enjoyed the film Book Club. I've been wanting to see that one too.

  17. The blue hair looks like fun. I enjoy Anna Wylde for light, fun reading.
    Happy Reading!

  19. Ugly Delicious was so great. I love that guy. I wanted to eat all the things. And a few of those episodes had me in tears. I can't wait to see Book Club. While not my favorite book they're reading but it still looks fantastic with that stellar cast! Glad you enjoyed it! Looks like you grabbed some great books to your collection.
