I follow a blogger who has a Sunday Post feature that is simply delightful and engaging, so I am posting my Sunday (evening) Post here:
What I am reading: DARING GREATLY by Brene Brown. This was recommended to me by a friend and is all and more than she said it was. It deals with vulnerability, shame, and expectations we have from others and from ourselves. It is giving me a lot to think about and is very helpful to the pleaser and appeaser in me. At the same time, I have a novel going, BEHOLD THE DREAMERS by Imbolo Mbue . It is a wonderful immigrants -in- America- story with “heart” and characters that will steal your heart.
What I have finished: THE AFTER PARTY (See today’s previous post). THE PASSENGER by Patrick Davis whose ending is so fast, so twisty-turny that I dare anyone to turn out the light until he/she reaches the end. It is a 1999 novel that turned up in a donation box for my Little Free Library which my husband confiscated to read and then he said, “You’ve got to read this!” I’m glad I did!
What I’ve seen: This evening we saw Sully at the local theater. It is well worth seeing, but be prepared to tear up if not get down right emotional, and to relive the self-doubt and fatigue Sully experienced which was not covered by the newspapers but was in his book on which the film was based. Clint Eastwood is the director, and Tom Hanks played Sully, both magnificent accomplishments. Earlier today I finished I Love You Already on my laptop and although sad, very sad, it was a lovely picture. Saturday I watched My Name is Kahn, and my only question was, how did I miss this one?
What I am watching: The first episode of the new season of The Big Bang and the new The Good Place. Big Bang is a staple, and I am reserving judgment on The Good Place until I have seen another episode. What I am eager to watch: The 1st episode of the new series, Designated Survivor.
That’s my past week, and I am looking forward to some really good watching, reading, and good things coming this new week.
