The Relentless Weekly Wrap-Up 11/09/14

Messy, but divine.


I reviewed Anthony Breznican’s Brutal Youthshared my October Wrap-Up, and took a look at my Year in Nonfiction.
I tried a number of new recipes this week, including Croissant French Toast from Pioneer Woman. (YUM!) I also tried her Cheesy Cauliflower Soup. It flopped. I don’t know what I did wrong but it was weird and grainy and I’m going to go ahead and assume that it was user error and not the recipe. 

In order to participate in the Nonfiction November readalong of The Restless Sleep I decided to set Rebecca aside for now. I’ll get back to it after this month.


I’m still binge-watching Star Trek: The Next Generation. The husband and I have also fallen for the dark and twisty Gotham. Robin Lord Taylor‘s Penguin is maniacally evil, but so fun to watch!


You’ll definitely want to read this fantastic post by Michele of A Reader’s Respite. She asks whether a book can be separated from its author. It’s an excellent post that will give you much to ponder.

The recent election results have me feeling severely disappointed. But you know what? I’m going to dispel those gloomy feelings by ending this post with a list of exciting personal news.


I’ve started a job at Redbery Books, my local indie. How great is that?!

My 14 year old daughter recently came out of the closet. She is brave and fantastic and there’s no way for me to convey how fiercely proud I am of her.

My oldest daughter is engaged! There’s no date or any firm plans as of yet but she has a lovely ring on her finger and lots of ideas. There’s plenty of time to plan since they won’t actually walk down the aisle for a year or two.

What’s happening in your neck of the woods? I’d love to hear!

  1. Thanks 😀 She is very loved! The scare tactics work, that's quite obvious isn't it? So frustrating 😦 People believe the first thing they hear. I want to give humanity more credit than that but…the proof is in the pudding. :/
