Friday Five (52)



It's Friday and I'm kicking off the weekend with another edition of The Friday Five.  I'm sharing my current favorite things, bookish news, or things that interest me. Let me know what you think!




1.  Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo - Did you hear that it's already being developed into a TV series on Amazon?  I just started this novel; I thought it would be the perfect Halloween read. Do you have plans to read this? I have actually never read anything by Bardugo. Shameful, I know. 





2.  Peaky Blinders - I am all caught up on this show now and starting the new season on Netflix.  At first, this show disgusted me, but my husband got me hooked. It's like The Sopranos meets historical fiction; it's a lot of fun! Do any of you watch? 





3.  Halloween Candy - I put on around five pounds every year this time of the year due to Halloween candy despite the fact that I still exercise. I am a sucker for chocolate and you know you have to "check" your kids candy to make sure it's ok. I am going to try to limit my candy intake this year.  What's your favorite type of Halloween candy? 




4.  Tessamae's Dressing - I am obsessed with the Organic Avocado Ranch dressing. Obsessed, I tell you! Have you guys tried it? It's very hard to find a creamy dressing that is dairy free and this one fits the bill. It's so.damn.good and it's vegan.  





5.  The Durrells in Corfu - If you haven't watched this gem on PBS, you need to get on board. It's one of the best shows out there and it flies under the radar. It's so well written, funny, smart, and heartwarming. If you love witty comedies with dry humor, you must check it out.  The last season is airing now, so you will have plenty of episodes to binge. Have you heard of this show? Do you watch?


I hope you guys have a great weekend!

  1. The only Leigh Bardugo book I've read is Six of Crows! My favorite Halloween candy is Reese's peanut butter cups, so I made sure to buy a bag of candy that did NOT have that in there! Hopefully that will curtail my candy eating a bit.

  2. I just started my first Leigh Bardugo series and I am enjoying it! Can't wait to hear your thoughts about Ninth House. We bought a huge bag of candy since we usually get a ton of Trick or Treaters - thankfully, if it doesn't all go, our YMCA runs a program collecting extra candy to send to the troops. That'll help us to not eat it all!

    1. That's a great tip about the candy. I need to look into that. We bought an extra bag and now I see it might rain. Cue the panic that we will be stuck with it! haha. I hope you are enjoying the Bardugo series. I am having a hard time getting into her novel, but I am still intrigued, so I am sticking with it!
