Wallflower Weekly Finds, 71

My sister, Angela, just celebrated her birthday this week, but since she was studying for exams, we decided to do Thai take out.

It’s actually kind of fun doing takeout rather than going out to eat sometimes. You get amazing food in the comfort of your own home.

Just some of the dishes we ordered =)

Thai food

I always make time to read no matter how busy I am. Maybe 2 or 3 a week? Which means I probably sleep a lot less than I should.

And I have a terrible habit of peeking at the ending of books. I know, I know. But I have to know that there’s a happy ending before I read it! Because I don’t want to get emotionally invested in the characters only to discover an unhappy ending. Which is why I can’t get into Game of Thrones. The only books that I don’t spoil the ending for are mysteries because it takes the fun out of guessing and solving the mystery.

My latest read: Targeted by Kendra Elliott. It’s the latest in a mystery thriller series. But sooo good. And I totally guessed the killer. What are you reading lately?

Have you heard? Starbucks has a new Sunset menu, and I really want to try everything. Will you be trying anything?

With all the tragedies that took place the past week, I thought this post #Unfollow Evil from the Shine Project says everything.

    I am reading a book on Lizzy Borden. Did you know that although she was convicted of killing her father and stepmother there never was more than circumstantial evidence she had done so. Her trial was 1892’s version is the trial of the century.

      • budgiesntiels says:

        It was. I couldn’t believe all the sensationalism that went on, the papers speculated on everything down to her attire to her lack of “feminine emotion”l. When the trial was slow the papers would make stuff up including allegations of an incestuous relationship between Lizzie and her uncle. It was unbelievable that things like that could occur.
