Welcome to another Beyond the Books feature, hosted by KissinBlueKaren.

Today’s feature is Your Favorite Shows.

I have a variety of favorites that change as the season change.  Right now I am enjoying several shows, beginning with Major Crimes:

I also love Rizzoli & Isles:

How To Get Away with Murder

These are my top favorites, and then there are others that I add to my DVR as they appear in the line-up.  I generally love anything that is full of drama.  A little mystery—or a lot of mystery—adds to the fun for me.

I am also an avid fan of Netflix shows, and have a variety on my queue.  Right now I’m watching House of Cards, having just completed Season I of Bloodline...and before that, all the seasons of Breaking Bad. 

Grace and Frankie, Season I, was a favorite, and I have watched three seasons of Orange is the New Black.

What are your favorites?  I hope you will come on by and share….

MY BOOKISH (AND NOT SO BOOKISH) THOUGHTS: SAYING GOODBYE!

picmonkey-collage-textured

Welcome!  It is Thursday, and that means we should check in over at Bookishly Boisterous, and then share a few tidbits about our Bookish and Not So Bookish Thoughts.

Last night, while I was propped up in bed with all the pillows and cushions available, I was reading.  But I kept getting distracted as I studied the room.  Yes, my bookish and cozy room that has been under fire lately.

There once were five bookshelves stuffed with books…and I started whittling away at them, removing shelves until there were four left. 

Suddenly I found myself out of that cozy bed and tossing books into a basket to carry them to the garage donation shelf (one of the empty shelves that now lives there!).

And now there is another empty shelf…on the other side of the garage.  And here are some views of what my room looks like now. (Below).  There was another full shelf where you now see the exercise bike and the stack of boxes under Minnie Mouse.  Before, the exercise bike was right next to my bed and I stumbled over it regularly…LOL.

Here is a close-up of the bike and the remaining shelf.

And a view of the other shelves. (Below):  Number Two Shelf Remaining.

Below:  Shelf Number Three:  And I had that fan blowing the whole time, as I was SWEATING like crazy.

Of course, I could not go to sleep!  And I had to take two pills for my sore muscles…LOL.

I watched Hot in Cleveland, with the story of how the show came to pass, and some of the actors’ favorite moments while filming.  I am going to miss that show!  Series finale is next week.

Then I continued reading Daughters-in-Law, by Joanna Trollope, another fun family story that peeks behind the facades….

I have loved reading two other books this week, too; The Liar, by Nora Roberts, and The Hypnotist’s Love Story, by Liane Moriarty. (Click for my reviews).

Mini-Bloggiesta is coming in June (13th and 14th)…and I’ll be participating.  I love these events, as they give me the opportunity to play with one or more of my blogs.

What has your week brought for you?  I hope you’ll come on by and share….
