This week started hot and muggy but was in the 70's for the rest of the week, which was nice. We've had a good summer here in Michigan for the most part. I started Arrow and have been all over Netflix this week- binge watching both that and The 100. I'm also checking out Humans on AMC - love the premise of that show. On the blog I reviewed All We Have Is Now and The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty- I like her writing a lot. I also had another Bookcover Spotlight (one of my favorite cover from last year).
This week I got Murder in the Paperback Parlor and my thoughts will be up on Tuesday. A fun read and this author keeps delivering. I've read several of her books now and they're all winners.
I've been thinking of this for a while, and decided to do a re- read of A Dance With Dragons- the fifth book in the Game of Thrones. It's been a few years since I read it, and since I suspect The Winds of Winter is coming next year, I want to be sharp with the details when it arrives. So much happens in this book that it's easy to miss stuff. If anyone is interested in reading along- I'm thinking a chapter a week- let me know! I'd love to compare notes.
This week's up north pics.

Not a lot of bookish news this week again, but as usual I have some up north news to share. I've talked a lot about Sleeping Bear Dunes and northern Michigan lately, but this past Sunday some big storms rolled through and did a lot of damage. You can see pics and stories here.

And this is a cool video that shows one of the most beautiful areas.
