This week’s must-see movie: BOOK CLUB*
* A note of thanks to PARAMOUNT PICTURES for providing a copy of BOOK CLUB for the purpose of review.
BOOK CLUB is about a group of lifelong friends who decide to turn their love lives upside down when they read a book, that I’m sure you’ve heard of, Fifty Shades of Grey as a part of their book club. Anyone that has read or just given Fifty Shades of Grey a glance can probably guess that what is discussed in this book club sparks some pretty interesting ideas these women want to give a try with their own partners. Iconic Hollywood stars Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen spice things up in the movie BOOK CLUB which is now available on Blu-Ray. Not only are these women relatable and funny but they also show what friendship truly is all about. Get your hands on a copy of BOOK CLUB and call up your friends for a girls movie night this weekend.
A TV Show to Binge-watch this Week
Grey’s Anatomy Season 14. Grey’s is one of those shows that I’ve loved for years. I love all of the characters and am continually amazed with what Shonda Rhimes comes up with. I honestly didn’t think I would still be watching after one of my favorite characters was killed off of the show, but here I am, just finished bingewatching Season 14, looking forward to seeing what Season 15 will bring next year.
Podcast Pick of the Week
Couple’s Therapy with Candice and Casey. If you are a fan of Casey Niestat, you’ll love this podcast with him and his wife. I love how they discuss real marital issues. They are open and honest. Listening to their podcasts feels like you are hanging out with friends.
YouTube videos you have to see
I love Jack‘s video editing style and his overall energy. He seems like a fun person and I think it is pretty awesome that he is the CEO of Patreon.
I am loving Shane Dawson’s new spin he has been doing to his channel with all of these series collars with other popular youtubers. I’ve been watching both Shane and Bunny since the early days of youtube. So it is interesting to see a different side of them.
Coming Soon in Movies
Anyone else a fan of Bohemian Rhapsody? This movie looks like it is going to be SO good. I love that they picked Rami Malek to play the lead, I have loved him as an actor because of the show Mr. Robot.
Currently Reading on Scribd
Scribd is by far my favorite platform for books and audiobooks because they are back to offering UNLIMITED reading of BOTH books and audiobooks for just $9 a month. This “Netflix of Books” is an incredible value if you love to read or don’t have time to read but want to start listening to more audiobooks (like I am). I love listening to audiobooks through the Scribd app with headphones on while doing housework or through a bluetooth speaker in the shower. Listening to an audiobook while doing something that needs to get done around the house is my favorite way to read.
This month, I stumbled across the comic book Quiet Girl in a Noisy World by Debbie Tung on twitter. I was so happy to see that Scribd had this book available. I am a complete introvert in every sense of the word. Most people don’t understand me and the idea of hanging out in groups can induce a panic attack. I couldn’t help but nod my head in agreement with every page I turned. This book is perfectly introverted. If you are introverted and finally want to read a book that is about you or if you love someone that is an introvert and want to know what their world is like I encourage you to pick up this book.

Songs I can’t get out of my Head this week:
I decided to start sharing some of my favorite music each week. If interested, you can follow me on Spotify or give one of my playlists a listen: “Mixin’ it Up!“. This playlist is where I typically add all of the new music I find first.
Snack of the Week
This week I’m trying to enjoy the last bit of summer by consuming any and all fruit that I come across. I’ve been particularly obsessed with watermelon and cantaloupes. I love making the boys and I a big bowl of fruit salad. This summer fruit salad is a sure to be a crowd pleaser with a brown sugar lime dressing that’s so easy to make.
