Weekend Update

I hope you all had a great weekend. Ours was low key but very nice. Today my husband made some new chocolate and walnut cookies but they almost ended up more like brownies (not that I’m complaining!) and we finished watching Trapped. Have any of you watched that show? I really liked it! Lots of snowy scenes, a gruesome discovery and a cast of characters all hiding something. Really enjoyable and now I can’t wait for Season 2.

You know what other Nordic crime show I can’t wait to watch? Occupied. This one is set in Norway where they face a Russian occupation. We really liked Season 1 so can’t wait to see what happens next.

On the book front I started reading The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon and it is so good. I know so many of you recommended this one. I should have listened to you guys sooner! There are several narratives going back and forth between past and present. Disappearances, deaths and so many spooky things. The atmosphere the author builds is so perfect and definitely has made me wonder if I should read this one at night. Ha.

Unfortunately I’m also reading The Good Daughter by Alexandra Burt and while there are no ghosts, there are certainly some similarities as this one also has different narrators and different time frames and I think it’s a bit too much for me to keep track of both. So I’m probably going to put this one away until I finish The Winter People. I’d like to start a book that is completely different from these, like maybe a good woman’s fiction book.

Anyway, that’s the scoop from around here. Let’s see what I find on my bookshelves and I’ll tell you about that in another post. What did you read this weekend?
