A Drink With

If you could have a drink with anyone, who would it be? That’s one of the questions that the site, A Drink With, asks the various celebrities, artists, and influencers that are interviewed. I’ve always liked learning about other people’s lives and getting a peek behind the curtain. I first discovered the site earlier this week when Hallie tweeted a link and I’ve been poring over it ever since. The photographs that accompany each article are also great and I like the way the subjects are captured in a more relaxed setting. I recognize some of the names that they’ve featured, but others I hadn’t heard of before. Regardless, I’ve enjoyed all of the interviews that I’ve read so far and I think this would make some great weekend reading.

What I Read: February 2014

february reads, what i read in february, february books, goodreads challenge

Allegiant

About- The final installment in the Divergent series; Tris and Four finally learn the truth behind the factions.

Why I picked it– Even though I didn’t love Insurgent as much as Divergent, I wasn’t going to leave the series unfinished.

Grade B In the end, I was kind of disappointed in this series. I really enjoyed the first book, but for me it all went downhill from there. I was less enthused by the second book and by the end of the third book I was over it. There’s a lot of information dumping in this novel, which just gets tedious. Also, I wasn’t a fan of the ending at all. It’s a bit of a twist and I won’t give it away, but to me it didn’t make that much sense in the context of the rest of the novel. Who else has read this series? Did you like it more or less than I did?

White-Girls

About- Essays on various “White Girls” (hint: the author’s definition of ‘white girls’ is different from the obvious interpretation).

Why I picked it– This was a book club pick, so I didn’t choose this one.

Grade D Eeek, this one was a real struggle for me. Remember, last time I was having trouble finishing it? Well, we set a date for a book club meeting this month, so I knew I had to pick it up again and power through. Sadly, this was my least favorite book in recent memory. I didn’t enjoy the writing style or the subject material. My impression of this book is that the only people who would enjoy it are some of the people mentioned in the book or the author himself. Yikes, that was harsh, no? But really, I didn’t like this book and if it weren’t for book club I wouldn’t have finished it.

All in all, it was not the best month in terms of reading for me! One very good note though- I started The Goldfinch a few weeks ago and I’m loving it. I’ve sort of been reading it slowly on purpose, so that I can savor it. Granted, I was watching the Olympics a lot and it’s a huge book (nearly 800 pages), so it’s been pretty easy to space it out. I’m about 2/3rds of the way through right now, so look for it to pop up in next month’s post.

I’d love for you to tell me what you’re currently reading in the comments below!

A Little Leather

Over the weekend, a friend posted this status on Facebook- “Leather. Jacket. Weather.” You know- when it’s cool enough that you need a jacket, but not so cold that you need a winter coat? And she was right; it was really nice out on Saturday and Sunday, many degrees warmer than it has been in recent memory. I was outside for a bit on Saturday; the sun was shining and the snow was melting and it really did feel like the beginning of spring. I shouldn’t get my hopes up though- I know the temperature’s supposed to drop back to freezing tomorrow. Oh well, it was nice while it lasted!

Hair Envy

Seriously, how do I get my hair to look like this? Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted long, flowing locks and my hairdos have ranged from medium long to really long. Suddenly, however, I’m seeing versions of the long bob everywhere and for the first time I’m actually tempted by a shorter ‘do. I feel like everyone is chopping their hair these days- bloggers, celebrities, coworkers, friends.

This haircut just looks so breezy and effortless and the lightness would be really nice when the temperatures start to rise. I have a hair appointment tomorrow and it’s long overdue. Despite all this talk, I probably won’t be getting anything out of the norm, but it’s fun to think about it. Hey, who knows? Maybe I will be spontaneous and get it cut!

Tell me: What’s the shortest length your hair has ever been?
