Besides Books (but not really, there are books)

I’m still really busy with school, and not doing a fantastic job keeping up with blogging (oops). I am slaying at my 8 week course though, so that’s good. I am hoping to catch up on commenting soon! I try to keep up with the top few sections of my bloglovin’ list every so often but then I get distracted or face internet problems and don’t make it as far as I’d like. I will find a way to defeat the list, somehow! And I will probably do a recappish post tomorrow, but I kind of forgot about the whole 28 days thing because that’s what an intense short class will do to you, and I had this one almost ready!

book sets

I mentioned in this post that I got my niecelets some books for Christmas.Neither of the sets had actually been opened and I was actually pretty sad about it, but the oldest niece decided to read Ivy and Bean (Though, because they are Ivy + Bean, she insists on saying “Ivy Plus Bean”) the other day and finished one of them pretty quickly and really liked it! It made me feel really happy! She asked if we could read one of the other ones together sometime this week and I’m super excited about it! I’ve also been reading Dora and 5 minute Princess stories with the youngest niece. I haven’t done a whole lot of reading one on one with the middle one, but I do watch her dance a lot =)

I am behind on every TV show I watch.  And there are so many I want to start! I am hoping once my short class ends I can start catching up. I am incredibly excited about the new season of Game of Thrones! The character posters are kind of lame, but aren’t they always? I’m excited about so many things, but the wedding (Marg’s hair is ridiculous and I love it so much) and Oberyn and everything in the North and Arya and Saaaaansa are some highlights. And dragons, of course. I’m just excited. Do you watch? Are you excited? What are you most excited about? 

And speaking of GOT, I saw Kit Harington in Pompeii last night. The movie isn’t exactly great but I enjoyed it, and more importantly, KIT. He is ridiculously good looking. He should be in all the things ever.

This MS MR cover of “Do I Wanna Know” by Arctic Monkeys is one of my favorite things at the moment:
