Lilac Girls on Overdrive. The readers are excellent (there’s three different ones for each of the main story threads) and it is gripping thus far.
Paranoid on Netflix
We found a winner with Paranoid! It’s my favorite type of crime drama: heavy on the suspense, not heavy on explicit violence. Probably one of my favorite crime series since Broadchurch. The Brits know how to do it!
I’m also enjoying Masterpiece Theater’s Victoria. It’s not as good as The Crown, for sure, (comparisons can’t help to be made) but I find Victoria’s reign interesting, especially the early years, so I can’t help but find it appealing.
Besides listening to Lilac Girls I’m also reading The Nightingale after so many friends who have similar reading tastes recommended it. I’m not sure why I’m doing two books set in W.W. II right now though, that probably wasn’t wise.
I also bought myself an issue of Taproot magazine. I’ve wanted to read an issue for a long time and it is inspiring!
Our blender broke a long time ago and I swore I’d buy a Vitamix the next time my blender went bust. However, our budget didn’t allow it so I went with this Ninja. However, it’s just awesome! We are back to enjoying green smoothies, trying to stay healthy this winter while everyone around us seems to get sick. My boys are TERRIBLE veggie eaters (the girls love their greens) so it’s a way for me to have them get a nutritious dose of spinach in them each day. This Green Banana Blueberry Smoothie is our current fave.
And this crab soup was easy and delicious.
