Reading and Watching


It’s been awhile since I did my last “reading and watching” post! To be honest, I’ve been really busy, so I haven’t been reading nearly as much as I would like…but I’ve still managed to squeeze in a few good books. As you can probably tell, I gravitate more towards light reading than long, serious books. Here are some of the ones that I’ve read lately (plus some shows and movies, too). Do you have any suggestions for me?? What have you been reading and watching?

Reading and Watching // At Home in Love

1. Show Your Work, by Austin Kleon. I wrote a whole post about Austin’s first book, Steal Like An Artist, so of course as soon as I saw this one at the bookstore, I had to buy it! / 2. Divergent, by Veronica Roth. I’m in the middle of this one right now. So far, I’m interested. / 3. About Time. I mentioned in this post that I couldn’t wait to see this movie, and I rented it the day it came to Redbox! It totally lived up to my expectations. Watch it now, if you haven’t already. / 4. The Mentalist (love this show). / 5. Frozen. Another good one at Redbox. The snowman is my favorite!  6. Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn. I kept hearing about this one, so I finally read it last month. It was goooood. Thought-provoking, unpredictable, and well-written. I totes recommend.

And here are a few of the books and shows that are next on my list:

On my list: Books to read

1. Decorate with Flowers, by Holly Becker and Leslie Shewring  / 2. Where’d You Go, Bernadette, by Maria Semple / 3. Mr. Selfridge. I think this show is somewhat similar to The Paradise, another show I wrote about awhile ago and really like. / 4. Creative Block: Get Unstuck, Discover New Ideas, by Danielle Krysa / 5. Design Bloggers at Home, by Ellie Tennant. / 6. Insurgent, by Veronica Roth. The next book after Divergent…of course.

So! I’d love to hear your recommendations. What books, movies, and shows have you been enjoying lately?

    I'm actually blogging about a bookshelf project of mine because I've been wanting to beef up my bookshelves and add more books that I love so this list is perfect for me! I'm excited to look up that Design Bloggers at Home book and loove the Divergent series, too. I'm actually just about to start Insurgent! :)

      Awesome! Yeah, I just found out about the Design Bloggers At Home book (it's not out yet, but available to preorder). It looks so good. It has Victoria of Sfgirlbybay's home in it, and Joy of Oh Joy! lots of other good ones.

    I LOVE DIVERGENT. Have you seen the movie yet? You'll have to let me know how you like it!

      I haven't yet! I want to finish the book first. Glad that you like it--I'm enjoying the book so far. I read during my lunch break, and I keep being like, "I have to go back ALREADY?!"

    Ooh - Just finished Where'd You Go Bernadette. Totally recommend. Loved it

    Ohhh, that Decorate with Flowers book looks like a good read!
    • Posted by Aileen on Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

      Yes! And Holly Becker + Leslie Shewring = dream team.

    Where'd You Go, Bernadette is excellent! One of my recent faves, as is Gone Girl. I read Sharp Objects by Flynn after that, and while it wasn't quite as good, I think I liked it. She writes really psychologically scary characters!

    I'm watching House of Cards (just on episode 4 of season 1). It's quite good. I need something good to read!

      Oh, I keep hearing about House of Cards! I can see I’m going to have to try it. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Oh, the Creative Block book looks interesting... Maybe I'll try it. Thanks for the suggestion!
