Mid-Week Tidbits

Well good morning. We've got perfect summer weather here. Unfortunately I haven't been out enjoying it that much. I came down with some sort of bug. There was five days of fever, chills and aches. That was followed by a cough that has stuck around since. No worries though I'm on the mend.

But I thought I stop by and share what has caught my attention lately.

Written in My Own Heart's Blood (Outlander, #8)

Reading: One of my favorite series came out with a new book, # 8 in the Outlander series.Which I bought and devoured all 825 pages of it.I also read a couple other books in two different series. Hallow City which is #2 in the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series and Bloodfever which is #2 in the Fever series. Both were okay reads but nothing great.

Television: There has been lots of TV watching going on. First we discovers Legend of Korra. Which we loved. But now will have to watch online and Nickelodeon will no longer air any of the new episodes. This is a squeal to Avatar: The Last Airbender.Both are are series that us adults and the kids are all will to watch. Both series are heavily influences by Japanese animation.

My other new favorite show is Outlander on Starz. Yes, this is based on the book series that I mentioned at the top of this post. So far only the first episode has aired and so far I love it. So far very true to the book, but I don't expect that to continue for all the episodes, but should be close. Set in both post-WWII and 1700's. Time travel and the Highlands. What not to enjoy?

Well I hope everyone is haveing a good week. What have you found to entertain yourself lately?
