Thursday Things 9/3


So, my husband and I just bought a house and we have two pieces of furniture that we still need to buy: a couch and a bookcase. It is SO ridiculously hard to pick out bookcases! I keep jumping between a HUGE one (to hold ALL of the books) or a small one (so I don’t create tons of clutter and donate my books to those in need of a read)—I can’t decide! Maybe I should get one of these.

Guys, I went to Starbucks this morning with the naive hope that PSLs are back. The barista seemed very annoyed (must be the question of the century) and let me know they would be back on Friday. Who else is #basic and likes to sip a warm cup of fake pumpkin while reading?! #falliscoming

Babies + books = all of the feels. Seriously, though—every time I finish a great book, this is me.

And in case you don’t know what to read this fall, check out this Buzzfeed quiz. I gotTwo Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights by Salman Rushdie, which actually looks pretty darn good. I took it again and picked different pumpkins and leaves (because what if I picked the wrong ones?) and got Gold Fame Citrus by Claire Vaye Watkins which ALSO looks awesome. What book did you get?

Okay, I added this one last minute…but I love The Everygirl and I love this list. I’m definitely picking up Mindy’s new book when it comes out ❤


I’m a huge fan of Candace Bushnell and everything she does (Sex and the City, Lipstick Jungle, One Fifth Avenue, etc.) and this article that Goodreads did with her and what she says about the labels that are put on women? LOVE. Also, she’s writing 2 more YA books and I can’t wait to read them!

What do you guys think about this theory re: Draco Malfoy? I’m not sure if I believe it or not (and really, will we ever know for sure?) but it does have some good points. It’s just another Harry Potter theory though, which seem to be incredibly common these days.

I LOVE what a junior high in Mississippi is doing to get students to read more – and it sounds like it’s super effective! Maybe more schools will jump on board!

If you loved Lisa Frank as much as I did when I was in elementary school, you should definitely read this! (Also, guess who I’m following on Twitter now? :))

If you didn’t know this already, we are based out of Idaho… and this promposal horror story is making the rounds on the interwebs lately. Is it me or is Idaho always portrayed like some po-dunk state that has nothing more to it than potatoes and “over a dozen Destiny’s“? Believe me, there’s a lot more to it than that, and it’s actually incredibly gorgeous here. Go away haters.

Please, tell me more about how much Idaho sucks… *sarcasm. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else!
