life lately. day two-hundred-fifteen.

reading - IMG_6747
As you can see I have a stack-o-books I have read only one of (oh and i got more TODAY...): Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier. Originally written in German but oh-my-goodness is it wonderful! I cannot wait to get the sequel from the library. (You should know I am obsessed with Young Adult (YA) fiction..just FYI). I was also really excited about James Patterson's YA novel: Confessions, cannot wait to read that. The composting books are because I am making my parents a Composting Bin! So I needed some materials to brush up on my skills. The fiction I am currently reading is not seen in stack because....well im reading it ok! BUT IT IS AWESOME! It is actually from the 'tween' section but I saw it when I was at Powell's in Portland, read the first 5 pages and loved it. It is called Wildwood by Colin Meloy; the illustrations by Carson Ellis are awesome. Highly recommended for adults.

I had the pleasure of finally going to see a movie, Oz the Great and Powerful;  and I really enjoyed it :) I love the stories of L. Frank Baum and I love how they went about this. It was also very visually pleasing.
I also just finished House of Cards on Netflix and cannot wait for it to continue! OMG!

On the same track as the movies i have seen I am lusting after the Glinda Palette by Urban Decay. I actually have the Theodora palette but I REALLY one this one :)
