mid-week round-up

What are you up to this week? Now that it’s full-blown, hot-as-heck Summer down here in South Florida, I’m planning to take all my work-related phone calls poolside for the rest of the season.

  1. We used to go to Myrtle Beach a lot when I was a young kid/teenager and besides hang out on the beach, the best thing to do was go to mini golf, of course! ha! That brings back great memories.

  2. I want to read all the 22 books, how am I supposed to do this? I would love to visit Myrtle beach by the way, lately I am dreaming of visiting US. Happy weekend Beth!

  3. I don’t have a copy of Americanah, but I listened to it last year through a friend’s Audible account. I really liked it, and I bet you are going to dig it as well. Let me know what you think!

  4. Oooh that misunderstanding a female serial killer was super interesting read! Great way to start a morning haha 🙂 such a lovely round-up as always 🙂
