These are the pop culture items I consumed this weekend. It was another busy weekend, so I didn’t do much media consumption. Without further ado:
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell: I’ve been listening to this on audiobook, and it is pure, unadulterated pleasure. It’s probably my favorite of all Rowell’s books, just in terms of sheer enjoyability. Listening to it when Zoey and I take our walks or when I’m stuck in traffic on the way home from work has been just the best distraction. I don’t want it to end, but I have less than 30 minutes left. What’s interesting is that I’ve also been reading Landline at the same time, and while it is good and smart, it pales in comparison to Fangirl. I think that’s really, really interesting.
At any rate, it’s one of those books I want to live inside of. I don’t know what to do when I’m done, because I’ll be in this haze where nothing else I read is it. Depressing and amazing.
Gilmore Girls Season 3: I’ve been doing a Gilmore Girls rewatch, and I’m firmly entrenched in the third season, which is my all-time hands-down favorite season. The story is the strongest here, I think. I love so many of the episodes, including “Take the Deviled Eggs,” “They Shoot Gilmores, Don’t They?” and “Dear Emily and Richard.” It’s a stellar season on a very good show, and I love getting to revisit it.
I wish I could say the same for J., who tolerates it being on but often leaves the room. It’s just not his thing, at all.
