Over the last month, I was introduced to the amazing Ron Swanson. I started watching Parks and Recreation from the beginning and I have flown through the first two seasons. I feel like I could devour the entire series super quick but I want to space it out a bit. So I'm taking a small break to catch up on the first 10 episodes of Awkward. By a third of the way through season two of Parks and Recreation, I was completely addicted. I loved the characters and got right into the story. And like a lot of people, Ron Swanson is by far my favourite character on the show. I love Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler) too of course. Her friendship with Ron is super cute and funny.
I've also been on an audio book kick over the summer. I listened to The Fault in Our Stars by John Green over the course of a week and holy crap, I loved it!
First of all, the voice actor who narrates the book is wonderful and fit the character perfectly! And second, the story is just so sweet, heartbreaking and inspiring. I can't even describe it perfectly. It completely brought back memories and pulled at my heart strings because of my own cancer experience. But it wasn't in a bad way. My initial thoughts on this book was that it was going to be too sad and depressing and I know a few people who think the same. But it's not. Yes, tears filled my eyes numerous times while listening to it. It's just different and makes you happy to be alive. The characters are incredibly inspirational. Just read it!
I'm currently half way through the audio book for Divergent. Seriously, audio books have become my new favourite thing. I listen to them while I sew (since the headphones block out the noise from my sewing machine) and while tidying up our place. I'm really enjoying Divergent so far. I've gotten to a point in the book where I can feel the addiction is setting in. Little things are popping up and happening that have really grabbed my attention and I'm really looking forward to when I can listen to more!
What are you into right now? Any recommendations?
