It was my birthday last Saturday and I'm now definitely at the age where I've decided I'll forever be 29. Even though I'm really not anymore.As a small treat we went to the Peak District in England to do some hiking, reading and writing with the dogs. Well, hiking with the dogs... reading with dogs trying to sit on our books and writing with dogs trying to sit on my laptop. The weather wasn't too bad for March in England and the temperatures were perfect for hiking.
The dog on the way home, haha!
The cottage we were staying at. It was once a chicken barn and the owners turned it into a small holiday cottage.
Books I read last week, that I'll hopefully have time to review next week:
- The Obelisk Gate by N. K. Jemisin (the second book in the Fifth Season trilogy, now I have to wait until the third comes out in August this year.)
- Kindred by Octavia E. Butler
- The Color Purple by Alice Walker
- The Woman in Cabin 10 by Ruth Ware
I took a lot of books with me and we didn't really watch any TV.
Grace and Frankie got a third season that dropped on Netflix this Friday. Whoever hasn't seen it, I highly recommend you check it out. The two lead women, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin are magnificent and it's refreshing to see women in their 70's being depicted realistically and with a lot of heart.
I just started reading Guy Gavriel Kay's The Lions of Al-Rassan and so far I'm liking it a lot.
I hope everyone is having a great time and I'll catch up with all your blogs throughout the week!

Thank you :) I hope you have a great week as well!Delete
I love the look of that holiday cottage! It reminds me of a book I once read, in which the characters lived in a tank house for a while (The Pumpkin Eater).ReplyDelete
I love interesting places to live or visit on holiday.
I also thoroughly enjoyed The Woman in Cabin 10.
Thanks for sharing...and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
Characters living in a tank sounds interesting! Thanks for stopping by :) Hope you have a great week.Delete

Happy belated birthday Olivia <33 What a gorgeous place to go hiking! The pictures are wonderful and it's great you got so much reading done! Have a great week <3ReplyDelete
Thank you :) You too! <3Delete
I found turning 30 pretty traumatic - I felt like I was supposed to have actually figured my life out, which I most definitely haven't! But, now that I'm looking at 33, I think I've slowly come to terms with this decade....but 40 is downright terrifying!! ;-)ReplyDelete
Me too! And I just turned 33 so yeah, I feel a bit better about things. The 30 REALLY bugged me :/Delete
Happy (belated) birthday! So glad it was a wonderful day :) I love those pictures, it looks awesome out there. Hiking isn't really my thing (I'm too lazy) but reading and writing I can relate to!ReplyDelete
