Bookish (and not so bookish) Thoughts: November 20
This is a weekly event hosted by Bookishly Boisterous.
1. I'll admit it: I have a book hangover. Ever since finishing Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover and Isla and the Happily Ever After by Steaphanie Perkins, nothing is quite measuring up. I'm currently reading two books, The Search by Nora Roberts and He's So Fine by Jill Shalvis, both of which I am liking, but neither of which I'm loving the way I loved Ugly Love and Isla. I'm hoping reading Sarah Jio's new one, The Look of Love (which I pre ordered) next weekend will pull me out of it!
2. A week from today is Thanksgiving!!! My absolute favorite holiday of the year. It angers me that everyone seems to skip over Thanksgiving and go straight to Christmas (and by everyone I mean retailers, not individual people). The hubby and I will be going over to my mom's for the day and I am super excited to help her cook for it Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning :)

4. It's been COLD here. At least for Oregon and for November it's been cold. The last few mornings I've woken up and it's been 23 outside. I know I have readers in much colder areas, but for this Oregon girl, 23 is WAY too cold for me. I prefer a nice 75 or 80...like Hawaii...:) Today it's finally starting to warm up a bit and be nice, mild Oregon with rain! My favorite!
5. Blogging: I've been blogging a lot less lately than I'd like--my apologies! Work has been absolutely insane and I've just been exhausted! But I promise I'm not going anywhere!!
