Read and Watched – 8th December – 21st December

Sorry again for another double-up, but we had an unexpected loss in the family. Some of these are episodes I’ve watched before, but we’re rewatching for Christmas.

READ

How to Make Money With Social Media – Jamie Turner and Reshma Shah:Interesting, but not something I’m really into exploring at the moment

Nine Pints – Rose George: This was absolutely fascinating and a little terrifying at the same time. I’ve noticed I read a lot of books like that this fortnight.

Twisted 26 – Janet Evanovich: This was great, and I loved having so much Grandma Mazur in it. She’s so much fun.

Daring to Drive – Manal Al-Sharif: This was interesting and terrifying at the same time.

WATCHED

The Flash

This is the show we missed. I’m just sorry it took until the last two episodes of the final season to see it again.

Double up this week due to much Christmas decoration on the 1st 🙂

READ

A picture of my dog Rosie, sitting on a leather couch,  with the book "Confessions of a Public Speaker" by Scott Berkun
Rosie with “Confessions of a Public Speaker” by Scott Berkun

Confessions of a Public Speaker – Scott Berkun: I found this really insightful and helpful. I like hearing examples about this sort of thing, rather than just steps of what to do.

Sawbones – Jason and Sydnee McElroy:This book is based on a podcast, which I hadn’t heard of. But I am interested in medical history and some of the weird things that have been done, so I found it interesting. I did find the writing style a bit annoying, but still interesting nonetheless.

Four Princesses – Helen Rappaport: So much has been written on the Romanovs, but I’ve never read a lot about the other sisters (Anastasia is often written about). It was a fascinating look at the lives they led, and tragically they had so much to offer the world when they were killed. I also did not know that most of the loyal entourage – including tutors and guards – were also shot. The book reads to give the idea that the Romanovs had no idea what was about to happen to them the night they were shot, and I hope that was the case. It was fascinating to read about the princesses – Anastasia was a firebrand, Tatiana was an excellent nurse. I was also fascinated to read that Nicholas and Alexandra were determined their daughters should marry for love – so rare at that time. All in all it was an excellent book, yet tragic that such an unnecessary thing happened to them

Am I Ugly? – Michelle Elman: I went into this book expecting one thing and ending up with another. I have followed her on Instagram for quite a while. I was disappointed in her opinion on psychiatrists vs psychologists – I have had the opposite experience. It was a quick read – read it in one night.

WATCHED

According to Jeff Goldblum

1×01 Sneakers – I love Jeff Goldblum so I loved this. Fascinating by how much testing goes into a sneaker.

1×02 Ice-Cream – Yes. Just yes to this whole episode.

Deep State

2×01 So Nathan is basically a male version of Amanda Jones

2×02 Leyla is a badass

2×03 This show is getting weird

NCIS Los Angeles

10×15 Smokescreen Part 2 – Well this was a much less dark episode.

10×16 Into the Breach – Love Mama Deeks. And Nicole Du Champs is awesome

10×17 Til Death Do Us Part – All hail Hetty Lange. Great episode. I did and still do want a scene with just Hetty and Mama Deeks. Kindergarten Cop reunion, anyone?

10×18 Born to Run – Badass Nell is my favourite Nell. Also, Eric being upset that Nell kissed another guy was beneath that character. He knows she was on the run, trying to keep the asset safe.

10×19 Searching – Love Jake. Glad to see him back.

10×20 Choke Point – All Hail Hetty. Seriously, she’s fabulous.

10×21 The One That Got Away – I love Arkady! So glad we got to see more of him in this episode than the last one he was in

10×22 No More Secrets – Joelle and Anna hanging out together is creepy

10×23 The Guardian – The JAG theme playing as Harm appeared took me right back!

10×24 False Flag – The JAG theme playing as Mac appeared! I’ve missed these weirdoes. But wow – way to kill the Harm and Mac fandom’s dreams. Ouch!

11×01 Let Fate Decide – What kind of ending for Harm and Mac was that about? We only waited for them to get together for TEN YEARS. And then there was the 9 years that apparently they weren’t together. And now they’re not together again? COME ON!!

11×02 Decoy – This episode was okay, but it was very disjointed.

11×03 Hail Mary – This episode was hilarious. This is the show we need and the show I signed up for.

11×04 Yellow Jack – First of all, love Fatima and Navid. So happy to see them both again. Also, uh, Kensi and Deeks – shouldn’t you have had this kid discussion BEFORE you got married? Just a thought.

Madam Secretary

6×08 Ships and Countries: Who’s writing this? The Stevie/Dmitri argument was beneath this show and so is a lot of the things happening with Madam President

6×09 Carpe Diem – Oh look! This is where my show has gone! This is the first episode of this season that has felt like my show. The engagement! And the chanting – what Hilary deserved.

Elementary

1×06 Flight Risk – Ah, we finally hear Irene’s name.

1×07 One Way To Get Off

The Good Place

4×06 A Chip Driver Mystery – Oh good lord that book. Jason teaching Chidi to do something spontaneous was fabulous, as was his song. Bad Janet’s comment on people who don’t vaccinate their kids made me laugh.

4×07 Help is Other People – The line about Janet violently consuming Janet babies made me laugh out loud.

The Blacklist

5×06 The Travel Agency – Another not terrible episode. Keep it up.

5×07 The Kilgannon Corporation (No.43) – They’re still writing good episodes. I’ve missed this show being this good.

Heritage Hunters

1×01

Hawaii 5-0

3×16 Kekoa Damn Summer Glau can fight. I saw a bit of River (Firefly) and Isobel (Arrow) coming out there. Also, I love Kamekona.

Inspector Rex

2×06 The Blind Witness – Loved Rex helping the blind woman and so glad she got her own baby Rex.

NCIS

16×7 A Thousand Words – I loved the street art and especially Ritz’s painting of Gibbs and Bishop

READ

My dog Rosie with the book "Jane Austen at Home" by Lucy Worsley
Rosie with “Jane Austen at Home” by Lucy Worsley

Jane Austen at Home – Lucy Worsley: This was a really interesting take on Jane Austen from the perspective of the places she lived. I also learned a couple of things – like me, she had facial pain, and scholars believe it likely she had depression 

Around the World in 80 Trains – Monisha Rajesh: I’ve traveled long distance by train once – 6 hours from Salzburg to Venice, through a blizzard. Not something I was interested in doing, but it’s interesting to hear someone who enjoys train rides go on a journey around the world in them.

5×03 Ne Me Quitte Pas – Mum likes Amnesia!Elijah piano-playing in France

5×06 What, Will, I, Have, Left – They were shocked that Declan was related to Cami!

5×07 God’s Gonna Trouble the Water – They didn’t expect the first-born curse of the Hollow. And they sincerely dislike Emmett.

Hawaii 5-0

3×14 Hana I Wa ‘Ia – So glad to know that Danny and Grace will stay together.

The Flash

3×23 Finish Line – Glad Iris and Caitlin are going to be okay. So glad we’re going to get to keep Killer Frost. I admit to shedding a tear when Barry went into the speed force with his mother.

2×04 Deadly Seduction – I love how Rex is refusing to let that woman anywhere near Moser.

NCIS

16×04 Third Wheel – I don’t like Brooks horning in on my Gibbs/Fornell time. Also, Izzy can go away permanently.

READ

The Veil – Chloe Neill:This was a really interesting novel set in New Orleans that had all kinds of supernatural beings. I really enjoyed it and have just gotten the sequel out from the library. Plus the main character is a redhead, which just makes everything better.

4×09 Queen Death – They were both quite shocked by Elijah’s death.

4×10 Phantomesque – Oh, the red door is back. Joy.

4×11 A Spirit Here That Won’t Be Broken – They certainly didn’t expect to see Jackson – or that he would be Hollow!Jackson and evil.

NCIS

16×03 Boom – Uh, what the heck is going on with Vance’s prospective date?

Writers: Their Lives and Works – James Naughtie

National Geographic July 2019

Eye to Eye – Frans Lanting

This is such a beautiful book of photography from Frans Lanting. I particularly love his photos of elephants and the different wild cats.

Moscow: An Illustrated History – Kathleen Berton Murrell

This was an interesting short history (with black and white illustrations) of how the capital city of Moscow came to be.

Monster, She Wrote – Lisa Kroger and Melanie R Andersen

This is an absolutely fascinating book about all the pioneering (and a lot of forgotten) female writers of horror, ghost stories and speculative fiction. A lot of these women were sometimes the first in their fields, predating men who are often considered the pioneers.

WATCHED

3×08 The Other Girl in New Orleans – They got quite the shock when they saw Finn! 

3×09 Savior – They loved the Christmas decorations. Totally didn’t see the ending with Cami’s death coming. They also were quite shocked at Elijah having to dagger Rebekah!

3×10 A Ghost Along the Mississippi – Dad says this show has some of the best scriptwriting ever. They totally didn’t see Cami pulling the switch with Aurora and locking Tristan in the box coming!

Joanna Lumley’s Silk Road Adventure

1×01 Venice, Albania and Turkey – Utterly stunning scenery and fascinating information

NCIS

16×02 Love Thy Neighbour – This show is getting good again. So glad Maria Bello is in it. And this was an excellent piece of character development for Torres

The Team

2×05 I’m glad Tarek and Rasha are okay.

2×06 Seriously Nelly and Gregor? Did we HAVE to? Also, it’s like no one can kill the maniac birdwatcher!

2×07

2×08 I’m glad someone finally got the maniac birdwatcher. He was nuts!

Elementary

1×03 Child Predator – This episode was so good. Such twists!

The Blacklist

5×03 Miss Rebecca Thrall (No 76) – This show has lost something along the way. The writing is not as tight, and the characters are acting out of character.

The Originals

2×16 Save My Soul – Mum and Dad’s reaction to Vincent saying Eva was his ex-wife was hilarious

2×17 Exquisite Corpse –  So huge grins and thumbs up when Freya breaks out of the magic binding chains and snaps Klaus’ neck. They also enjoyed her killing Esther, too.

2×18 Night Has a Thousand Eyes – They thought Dahlia was great fun and they were both glad to see the end of Mikael.

2×19 When the Levee Breaks – They weren’t particularly pleased with Dahlia when Aiden died, but boy did they get a huge shock when Klaus got daggered!

2×20 City Beneath the SeaThey both agreed that now that Klaus is awake, he’s going to be a tad cranky.

Inspector Rex

1×15 Under the Streets of Vienna

Arrow

5×20 Underneath – One of the best episodes they’ve done in a while! See, Arrow, this is what happens when you focus on the ladies.

When Everything Changed – Gail Collins

A picture of my poodle Rosie looking at the book "Everything Changed" by Gail Collins
Rosie and Everything Changed by Gail Collins

A fascinating look at the way women’s rights have changed over the years.

Drop Dead Healthy – AJ Jacobs

This was an interesting read, but it’s hard to find any relevancy when you have chronic illness. Chronic illness makes it difficult to do any of the things recommended.

Pachinko – Min Jin Lee

This book was interesting, because it kept you engrossed even though it was not a happy story.

Rosie with Born to Drum by Tony Barrell

Born to Drum – Tony Barrell: I LOVE to drum. I learnt in high school and I was quite good – I won two competitions  and I was able to learn things by listening to them. Unfortunately fibromyalgia means that drumming is now very painful, but I still like to read about it and listen to other drummers play.

READ

A picture of my black poodle Rosie, her toy Lamb Chop, and the book Astrid Lindgren by Jens Andersen
Rosie, Lamb Chop and Astrid Lindgren by Jens Andersen

Astrid Lindgren by Jens Andersen

The Durrells of Corfu – Michael Haag: I really liked this one because we got more information on things that Gerald didn’t write about. I had no idea that Gerry’s friend Theo studied radiology with Madame Curie! However I did not like that the author was so graphic with what happened to two of their dogs.

Himalaya – Michael Palin: Normally I love his travelogues, but this one bothered me. Not only did he ride on an elephant he watched a mahout hit an elephant with the front end of a bullhook. I really, REALLY hate that.

The Scarlet Pimpernel -Baroness Orczy: I mainly know this book from the mini series with Jane Seymour which I absolutely loved, but it was fun to finally read the book.

Respect: The Life of Aretha Franklin – David Ritz: I had no idea what her life was like so this book was a real eye-opener.

Domino 1 – Gail Simone: Any comic written by Gail Simone (a redhead!) is a plus for me, so I knew I had to try this one out and I’m glad I did!

WATCHED

NCIS LA

9×14 Goodbye Vietnamhaving two episodes with Hetty’s friends was such a gift and I love that Linda Hunt got a great personal storyline

9×15 Liabilities – Hetty’s back! YAY!

9×16 Warrior of Peace – Nell continues to be awesome, but I found the story morally uncomfortable. Reminds me of an episode where they killed two Iranian security guards even though they didn’t have to.

9×18 The Vendetta

9×19 – Outside the Lines: Nell’s in the field again! Rejoice!

9×24 Ninguna Salida: And smart money says Mosley got someone killed. 

Wynonna Earp 2×6 Constant Cravings

Hawaii 5-0 2×23 Ua Hala: The minute I saw Chin checking out Doyle from jail, I knew there was going to be trouble, and I was right. Also, Dad goes “I thought Steve’s mother was dead” and I said “Yeah, well when you see what she does, we’d probably all have preferred she was.” Plus, did Rachel really think Danny wouldn’t fight for Grace? The man literally uprooted his entire life to move to Hawaii just because she was there!
