Friday Five and Giveaway (40)

Happy Friday! Sometimes I like to talk about what I am currently into that is not necessarily book related. Here's what I have been up to/thinking about/enjoying lately.

1.  Jackie - I have a thing for the Kennedys and love learning more about this captivating family. I finally saw Jackie with Natalie Portman and I thought it was just ok.  I mean talk about depressing, but I sort of knew that it would be going into it since it focuses on her life right after JFK's assassination.  Although Portman's acting was pretty great, I actually like Katie Holmes' interpretation of Jackie a bit more in her The Kennedy: After Camelot.  Did any of you guys see the movie?

2.  Always and Forever, Lara Jean by Jenny Han - It came out earlier this week! I am so excited to continue with this series and as you know Jenny Han is one of my favorite authors.  I pre-ordered the book and can't wait to get my hands on a copy.

3.  The White Princess - Anyone watching this show on Starz? I am loving this adaptation of Gregory's novel and so far I think it is well done.

4.  Lilacs - I have always wanted to plant a lilac bush and never got around to it. I finally planted one in the front of my house and I am LOVING it. The smell and flowers all scream summertime. I think it's my new favorite scent.

5.  YA Giveaway - I have a copy of Keeping the Moon by Sarah Dessen to give away today. Summer is the perfect time to Read a Dessen and this book will tug on your heartstrings. If you missed my review and epic Dessen giveaway, check it out here.  The giveaway is open to US only and the deadline is May 14th.  Please refer to my giveaway rules.  Good luck!

Happy Friday,


  1. The lilacs are beautiful! Such a lovely scent. :)

    I haven't seen Jackie though I think her life is fascinating. I am glad you are enjoying The White Princess. I haven't read those books yet.

    1. Thanks, Christina! You should definitely check out Gregory's Cousins' War Series...very good! Thanks for visiting. I'm glad you had a nice vacation.

  2. Lilacs are a favourite of mine as well. Sadly, I live in a new neighbourhood so not grown trees to be had. I steal some from my inlaws, though. Lol.

    1. Yes! I have always appreciated nice to finally have my own! Thanks for visiting, Joy!
