This month has really flown by! After work, reading, and writing reviews I barely had any time left over to catch up around the web or even the blogs I follow, but I still managed to find a few links I’d like to share.
I hope y’all have a wonderful holiday weekend! Happy reading! 🙂
New BBC Costume Drama!
Over the last few months, my love for the Bronte’s has reemerged, from finally finishing Wuthering Heights to reading Jane Steele and The Madwoman Upstairs – I can’t help but love EVERYTHING Bronte. And now, there’s going to be a new BBC costume drama all about them!! To Walk Invisible is a two-hour drama exploring the sisters’ relationship with each other as well as their tumultuous relationship with their brother, Branwell. It looks beautifully done, from the cast to the dresses – I can’t wait!
A Spring to Summer Cocktail
The end of may can be a little more spring-like or a little more summery depending on the shift of the weather, but the Takin’ a Break Rose Cocktail by Imbibe is the perfect between spring and summer refresher. I absolutely love all things grapefruit, and this cocktail does not disappoint on that front – they give an amazingly simply recipe for a delicious grapefruit-cinnamon syrup. Yum!
Summer Reading List
You guys, Modern Mrs. Darcy has finally shared her Summer Reading Guide! It’s the most comprehensive summer reading list I’ve seen, and I’m so excited to read some of her picks. She guide is separated into 6 categories listing 5 books each, from thrillers to romantic beach reads, she’s got you covered. I’ll be posting a summer reading list next week, be sure to check it out!
This week made my roommate a delicious Hummingbird Cake for her birthday, a recipe I found from Ezra Pound Cake. It’s so easy, and really takes no time at all to put together. For pecan and banana bread lovers, this is not a recipe to miss!
I made this recipe for Enchiladas Suizas for Cinco de Mayo, and it was AMAZING! I perhaps made them a little too spicy, but I’ll definitely be making them again. The recipe is by Kitchen Nostalgia, and they even include a recipe for homemade enchilada sauce (gotta admit, that was the selling point).
Beauty and the Beast!
I can’t not talk about the new trailer release for Beauty and the Beast! First with the music, and the candle sticks, to the mysterious all most glimpse of the Beast – it looks absolutely gorgeous! Though, I’m not completely sold on Emma Watson as Belle with that kind of week “hello” ( I know, but I can’t help but feel the way I feel), Ewen McGregor is playing Lumiere and Luke Evans as Gaston! It should be amazing! …only a year to go.
