It looks like Sunday Snippets is all I post these days, and maybe I am in a blogging slump as well, but I am happy I started these Sunday posts - at least it keeps me on track and not forget about the blog all together.
Nothing particularly interesting happened this week, but it was a nice week, nevertheless. Work is easier in summer (less news means less work for me), weather has been nice (meaning not too hot). On Thursday we went to see Man of Steel, the boys liked it but I found myself falling asleep for the second half of the film... Let it be mentioned that there are plenty of superhero and/or comic-based movies that I like very much, so this one just wasn't for me.
A dress and three pairs of shoes arrived in mail. It was indeed a nice week.
I finished a book too! Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin - a fast book on controversial and intriguing topic (hermaphrodites/intersex people). I still have Middlesex winking from the TBRS (to be read soon) shelf here at home as I am writing this.
Modern Family, Season 2 - still very funny.
House of Cards, Season 1 - started this with the boyfriend. There is so much speaking for this series, but it's a bit hard to form opinions yet as we have only seen 2 episodes.
Downton Abbey, Season 3 - something terrible just happened in the episode I watched today. I hope the overall moods in the series will improve somewhat.
I also finished Jane Eyre miniseries (BBC, 2006), which I started a while back. I liked it a great deal, when it comes to staying true to the novel. Honestly, I tried watching the 2011 version with Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasikowska, but gave up half way. To me, that adaption was just butchering the whole novel and there was nothing captivating about it.
Finishing the winner of this year's Women's Prize, May We Be Forgiven by A. M. Homes. It was good I approached this book without any expectations and no knowledge of any hype (if there was any), since it has been a really interesting and rather pleasant surprise.
Muse stadium concert here in Helsinki next Saturday. Oh, yes.
