Highlight of the week: Well, here we are on Oahu! Unfortunately, Hawaii hasn't gone out of its way to welcome us this go-round. It's been unusually rainy and humid, traffic is even worse than I remember it (partly due to light rail construction) and we're having a bit of a tough time finding a place to live. I will say, though, that it's nice to be in flip-flops again. And the silver lining to the rain is all the gorgeous impromptu waterfalls it creates along the H-3 through the Koolau Mountains!
Reading: I didn't get much reading done at all this week, but I did start and finish "Dark Places" by Gillian Flynn. It was a solid 4-star read, and I definitely blew through it once I got into the story. (I actually didn't read much on the plane, like I'd planned, because Delta had on-demand movies in the seatback, which was awesome!) I'm hoping to watch the movie version soon, though I totally cannot see Charlize Theron as Libby. Now I'm reading an advance copy of "June" by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, which comes out tomorow. I enjoyed her first book, "Bittersweet," and I'm expecting to like "June," but I'm not far enough in yet to say. I do love the cover, though!
Watching: We watched a few more episodes of this season's "Fear the Walking Dead." It's nice to have something to watch in our hotel room, and I'm interested, but I definitely don't feel the connection to the characters that I do with the original show. (And every time I catch myself ogling Nick, I remember that he played little-boy Voldemort. Eek!)
Eating: Authentic Thai food, something we sorely missed in Dayton! Our very first meal after we got off the plane Wednesday was pad Thai, spring rolls and Thai iced tea.
Looking forward to: Finding a house! And, even though it means we'll have to move out of base lodging because they don't take pets, I'm looking forward to our kitty, Lily, joining us on Thursday.
I'm linking up with Kathryn at Book Date for her weekly feature, It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
