It’s Monday and I’m reading Wangs vs the World


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date


Hooray! The husband was away last week from Tuesday morning to late Friday so it was good to have him back.

Boo… because he had been away at the conference he had to catch up on work on Saturday which meant we didn’t really do much. But we did go out for Korean food at least!

Hooray! Halloween was fun as always, although it drizzled slightly for a bit. As we are out trick or treating with the kids, we leave a bucket of candy out on our front steps and this is the first year it was all gone. One greedy kid or just more than last year? We did notice some houses which had candy last year had their lights out this year. Maybe because it was a Monday?

Part of my Litsy photo challenge – these are books set in small towns.






The Wangs vs the World – Jade Chang



Gilmore Girls. I’ve watched this series so very many times but you know what, I still love watching it. I have to admit I’m a bit apprehensive about these new episodes coming up at the end of the month. While I am DYING to find out what happens to everyone, what if it’s not as brilliant as the original? What if it’s like those awkward few eps where Christopher is with Lorelei and they’re celebrating not-Christmas?



Garretts Popcorn – the husband brought back a large bag from Chicago where he was for the past week, on a work thing. He got a mix of caramel and cheese. I don’t know. I’m more of a regular popcorn kinda person.




Is this November? It doesn’t really feel like it in terms of weather! The past week I’ve been wearing T-shirts out because it’s been so warm. I’m looking forward to cooler weather so I can make cheesy baked things like baked rice, baked pasta! This may be the warmest November since I’ve lived here.

And oh man, I don’t have a dolsot but I really want to eat this mac and Kimcheese dolt bibim-mac!

  1. I’m afraid to admit this, but I haven’t watched “The Gilmore Girls”. When it was one TV, I saw one episode (in the middle somewhere) and wasn’t entranced, and I never went back. But when I hear it talked about, I feel like I must have missed something?! Should I give it another try and start from the beginning?
