Sundays in Bed with… Unraveling

July 22, 2012 In Bed With... 15

Kate at Midnight Book Girl has started a new feature on Sunday mornings to share with everyone what you’re reading in bed Sunday morning before getting to the days activities.

Unraveling jkt des5.inddI’ve wanted to read Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris for a while now, but I just haven’t gotten to it and I decided to make time for it this week.  Sadly I won’t be reading in bed today.  I’m dog sitting for my cousin so I’ll be heading over to their house after church to give the dogs some quality people time, or if it’s not raining letting them run around outside so I can read in peace.

** Complaint of the week: I wrote a whole post about my displeasure but ultimately decided not to post it because my blog is a happy place, but I will say this – It will be a cold day in hell before I step into another Family Dollar store.

** I’ve totally fallen in love with Downton Abbey.

** I don’t like the new format of So You Think You Can Dance.  After I don’t even know how many seasons to change the format now is silly.

    I just discovered Midnight Book Girl and I love the idea of the In Bed With Sunday blog. So nice.

    Downton Abbey is awesome! Unlike a lot of shows, you can watch the reruns over and over again and it does NOT get old. So many details, I guess. I’m in love with that house and all the possibilities within.

    Nice to “meet” you!

    I don’t spend much time in Family Dollar but I am all about the Dollar Tree!
    I don’t watch So You Think You Can Dance, but I am thinking about restarting my netflix so I can watch season two of Downton Abbey.
    And I feel as if I have seen Unraveled on my radar through the book blogging community but I don’t really know anything about it.

    Now I’m all curious what happened at Family Dollar. One of these days I’m going to watch Downton Abbey.

    Hi! I hope you had a fun time reading even when you’re dog sitting (I hope they behaved!). Kudos on keeping your blog a happy place. I’ve had many “incidents” as well and while writing them down is cathartic, leaving them unpublished takes the “Why did I write that?” feeling which comes way way after.

    Sending you good vibes from the other side of the world.:)

    I really want to read this one. It sounds so good and I think I remember Kate liking it. Have fun dog sitting! Was it sunny enough for you to let them out and get some quality reading time in?

      It was sunny enough for the to be outside but I felt so bad because after they did their business they laid in front of the patio door giving me the sad puppy face so I ended up letting them in anyway. They did calm down enough for me to get some reaidng in :)

      Unraveling was really good. :)

    I loved Unraveling! I hope you do too!

    I hate dollar stores where things don’t cost a dollar or less. This is my own little rant. They are by definition NOT dollar stores. Sigh.

    DOWNTON ABBEY. You should love it, because it is the best!

    • Kimberly @ On the Wings of Books

      I totally agree with you! If it has “Dollar” in the name than everything better be a dollar in my opinion, otherwise it’s false advertising (in my opinion of course)

      Downton Abbey is the best :)

    I really want to read Unraveling! I’m looking forward to seeing what you thought of it!

    Sorry to hear about your Family Dollar thing, but I commend you on refraining from posting it. You never know if you’d look back later and say, “Man, why did I post that?” Don’t get me wrong, I’m totally cool with rants–I just try to keep them off my blog if I can. ;) So good for you!

    I have Downton Abbey on my Netflix instant queue, but haven’t watched it yet. I already have so many shows, and so little time, but one of these days I’ll watch it!

    And I feel bad for saying this, but I’m just kind of tired of SYTYCD. I loved it for a long time, and there are still amazing dancers and amazing choreographers, of course, but I’m just like–I could be reading or watching something else right now. And that’s kinda sad coming from me, because I did ballet/tap/jazz for 12 years! Anyway, we still record it on our DVR but I’m just not interested in watching. Maybe someday I’ll feel like a marathon, but until then, I’d rather read… And you’re right, why switch the format now? So dumb.

    • Andrea @ The Overstuffed Bookcase

      Let me rephrase one thing: I try to keep rants off my book blog. I used to get up on a soapbox all the time on my personal blog. But I haven’t posted on that blog since I started my book blog. Anyway… ;)

    • Kimberly @ On the Wings of Books

      I’m glad I didn’t post it (work lesson applied to blog – the 24 hour cool down), but I’ve still saved it because it’s a fairly good piece of writing. I probably would have regretted posting it.

      I wish I had a place that I could rant more because I feel like I have lots of them, but most of mine are work related and I will not put that stuff anywhere on the internet because that’s just not smart.

      SYTYCD is the only reality show I’ve stuck with for more than one season, so I’m not ready to part with it. I just don’t like the new format. It’s lame.
