Friday Night Likes | 05

This week I have a little round-up of links I enjoyed this week:

Haunted Doll – a little pre-Halloween fun. Don’t worry, this isn’t scary.

Where in the US Do You Belong? – you’ve probably seen this already, but just in case. I belong in Oregon! What about you?

40 Financial Things You Should Know by 40 – excellent, I still have 13 years to get this ish down.

Nest Thermostat – this thing just seems so cool. And warm. (Get it? Because it’s a thermostat? Heh heh.)


Also,  I have GRAND PLANS of blogging something other than Friday Night Likes in the coming weeks, I promise. Life has just been getting away from me lately, woof.

Friday Night Likes

I’ve decided to start a new series here on ye olde blog, and I’m calling it Friday Night Likes, an adorable play off the title of everyone’s favorite television series, Friday Night Lights.

In this series, every Friday night I will post something I’ve been crushing hard on lately. This could be anything – clothes, food, beauty products, TV shows, songs, movies…you get the idea. I’m a Lover of Things and I enjoy sharing my love.

For my first installment, I am sharing the book series I am currently completely obsessed with, the Deadwood Mystery series by Ann Charles:


The first book in the series.

I found these delightful gems via BookBub, have you guys heard of it? It’s a brilliant concept. You sign up for their services (completely free!) and choose which genres of books you like to read, and each day they email you a listing of ebooks that meet your specifications and are also on sale or FREE. You can click right from the email to a link where you can buy a title and have it on your Kindle, nook, iPad, whatever, in seconds. It’s perfect for when you want a good book quick and don’t want to spend a ton of money on it. It’s also excellent if you’re a voracious reader like I am and find yourself spending your nest egg money on books (better than on drugs, I suppose). The company is actually based in Cambridge, MA and I have been desperately trying to get a job there. BookBub, if you’re reading this, you have found your next phenomenal employee. Please contact me!

Ok, this has turned into a two-for-one Friday Night Like, since I hadn’t originally planned on waxing poetic about BookBub, but there you have it.

Back to the books.

They’re fantastic. They’re funny, suspenseful, charming and unique. They have romance and supernatural elements (but not enough for me to fully lump them in the supernatural category, so if you’re not into that I wouldn’t let it discourage you) and are very well written. They even have some juicy dirty bits thrown in there in a way that makes sense and won’t make you feel uncomfortable and weird (*cough* Fifty Shades *cough*). Each books is a new mystery, with some overarching stories that span the series woven throughout as well. They have great reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.

And, the best part, all the ebooks are on Amazon for under $4. Can’t beat that! Go check them out if you’re looking for a new read!

Let’s Go Camping


Yes, the rumors are true. I’m going camping. For THREE WHOLE NIGHTS. My death is likely imminent. Just add a very healthy amount of dirt and bug spray to all of the above and that is pretty much how my trip is going to look. I’ll be back next weekend with stories galore, I’m sure, as well as a recap of my July. (HInt: it was rad.)
