Friday Five (51)



It's Friday and I'm kicking off the weekend with another edition of my Friday Five.  I'm sharing my current favorite things or things that interest me that aren't necessarily book related. Well, come to think of it..... most of the topics are.  Let me know what you think!




1. The Chaperone - Did you guys hear that The Chaperone is coming to PBS? I've had this book on my shelf for the past few years but never got around to it, so I decided to start the audio book. I was happily surprised to hear that it's narrated by Downton Abbey's Elizabeth McGovern, who also happens to start in the TV show.  Have you read The Chaperone? Will you watch the show when it comes to PBS this November?




2.  Downton Abbey Movie - I saw it last week and loved it! It was like visiting an old friend. Plot wise not too much happens, but it's all about the characters in this movie and I was happy to revisit them and the gorgeous location of Highclere Castle. Fingers crossed for another movie! Did you see it?




3.  The Witcher - So, this international bestseller is coming to Netflix soon. Anything with Henry Cavill is a must-watch for me. *Swoon* Have you read the book? I am very intrigued, especially with the comparisons to GoT.





4.  Oprah's Book Club - Did you hear it's back? She has partnered with Apple TV. I am excited to hear what books she picks out since she is the original celebrity book club queen. 




5.  The Other Side of the Coin by Angela Kelly - The queen has allowed her advisor and dresser to release a memoir. This is unprecedented! As a royal lover, I will definitely have to check this out! 

Have a great weekend,
