3 TV Shows I’ve Been Watching
1. Orange is the New Black
I’ve been watching this one in bits and pieces because The Boy keeps watching ahead, but I’m definitely enjoying this show this month. Recommend.

2. Outlander
I’ve read the book and I’m still unsure about the show, but Jamie… oh, hello.

3. The Block, Glasshouse
I don’t know if you non-Aussie’s have The Block, but it’s basically a renovation show. Five teams come in to renovate a building to go to auction.

Picture of the Month:
With my friend Georgie at our local pub. Another great night out and about.

How has your August been? For me, I’m just excited that tomorrow is Spring!!!!!

    I know what you mean about Outlander – I can’t decide whether it’s awesome or terrible, but Jamie will keep me watching 😉

  7. Wow, amazing book haul Jodie! I spy Isla in the stack – soooo excited for that book. I hope you enjoy it lots! I’ve been meaning to start watching Orange is the New Black (I’m so tired I wrote organ instead of orange the first go…), but I still need to finish off Breaking Bad! And the bf won’t let me watch ahead 😦

    I hope you enjoy all your new books and shows. Have a wonderful September 🙂

    You’re lucky to have the opportunity to review a lot of books! My August was transitioning from my work of 10 months, which allowed me to get back to my writing and reading. A slow start to August, but I accomplished a good amount in the end. Thanks for sharing Jodie 🙂
