Weekly Reads (08/03/18) - Can't Believe It's August!


I really can't believe another month is in the books.  In a way I'm glad it's August because that means college football will be starting soon.  As the pups aren't in school, at least I don't have the prep that some of you do.

The Farm is doing well this week.  Booker T remains on the mend and Cass is as lively as ever.  They are enjoying all the doggy related activities for the blogs "Dog Days of Summer" participation.  Gpa is getting stronger every day and his home health providers have cut down  their visits.  


Not many new movies to watch this week but we did watch the newest "Castle Rock" episode.  I'm enjoying it thus far.  I've also been addicted to "World of Dance" which is another guilty pleasure.  I like watching people do things I will never be able to do :)  We watched a movie called "Occupation" which was a total dud and then watched "Extinction," the new Netflix movie, which I would highly recommend.  "Mr.Mercedes" starts back up in 3 weeks and I can hardly wait.


I did get some books finished this week.  Finished up "The Girl in the Green Silk Gown" and read my first DDOS read - Atomic Frenchie.  Also finished up a novel an author sent me - "Manifest Recall."  Just need to get hopping on my reviews.  Here's what I hope to read/get started this weekend.  Quite a variety huh?  I hope to alternate horror/thrillers with dog books.  A great month if you ask me!


So did you watch anything good this week?  I'm looking for weekend recommendations.

    1. Yes, we watched Season 2 the weekend it was released. Can't believe we have to wait so long for Season 3. I started watching Slasher... not bad.

  6. I wasn't convinced I liked Castle Rock until episode 3 and I completely forgot to watch the newest one! Putting that on my weekend to do list. :)

    1. It is kind of a slow mover. I bet that's why they released the first 3 episodes at once.

  7. I'm delighted to hear that everything is sorting itself out and very much hope that August is a kinder month! The Hunter Shea book gave me the shivers, but I have an abiding fear of rodents! Have a great weekend, Barb.

  8. Yeah, there's only a month left before my kid goes back to school and I'm already feeling stressed about all the stuff I'll need to do to get her (and myself) ready. I gotta get in all the reading I can!

  9. I've been eyeing Extinction. I might check that one out soon. Sometimes you feel like binge watching a show and other times, you just want to wind down with a movie. I hope you enjoy your August! Just a little heads up, I'm going to be take a blogging hiatus next week. I won't be responding to comments on my blog until I come back, but I will still be visiting you while I taking a break πŸ’•πŸ’•

  10. I am so happy to hear that Grandpa is doing better. I like to alternate genres in my reading as well. I think that keeps everything feeling a bit more interesting. Have a great week!

  12. I'm glad Booker T is feeling better! 🐾

    I love the cover of Drinking from the Trough. πŸ’œ✨

  13. Yup, it's August, and HOT as HADES!! Lol. It's usually in the 90s down here. I guess I should be grateful we're not in Phoenix, Arizona. It gets into the 100s there! UGH.

    SO glad your Gramps and Booker T. are getting better and better!! YAAAAAY!!! <3 <3

    We haven't gone to the movies in a while, and we don't have Netflix. So I haven't heard of these movies you've mentioned, or the TV show, either. :(

    The other day, we did watch "Stepbrothers" on cable. In case you haven't heard of it, Will Ferrell is in it. It was funny, but only to a point. Mostly, it was pretty silly.

    I like the cover of "Drinking from the Trough", because there's a horse on it!! Lol.

    Thanks for sharing!! HUGS TO YOU AND THE PUPS, AND "WOOF, WOOF" TO THEM!! <3 <3 <3 :) ) :)
