The 2023 Check In Week 46

Here’s what I recently read, added to my reading list, watched, cooked and bought.

read+ This week I finished listening to the audiobook of The Ferryman, Justin Cronin. I wanted to love this so much more than I did! It took me forever to get into it, but eventually I had just a little more than mild interest which kept me from giving up entirely. The World building is superb and if it just had gotten to some of the “meat” a little sooner, I would have cared more and probably enjoyed it a lot more. The writing is brilliant too. Needless to say, I didn’t enjoy this as much as The Passage Trilogy which is A++.

added to my “to be read” list+ I’m likely to stick to choosing books from Goodreads List of Fall’s Most Anticipated New Horror Novels. I’m most excited to see a new novel from Tananarive Due, Stephen King and Catriona Ward. So many goodies!

watched+ I was traveling for work last week and I finally saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 which was one of the free movies on United – loved it!! Rotten Tomatoes Best New Movies of 2023.

cooked+ We have an air fryer that doesn’t get much use, but over the weekend I tried Crispy Air Fryer Red Potatoes and it was a hit! Definitely will be doing this all the time now – and cleanup was easy!

bought+ Best find on sale recently – Nike Pro 365 Women’s High-Waisted 7″ Shorts. Seems true to size and of course black matches with everything. It holds up well to sweat and movement (running).
