Weekly Wrap Up: August 23rd-29th

Weekly Wrap-Up 

Ash's week:
Honestly this week just kind of flew by, nothing of too much interest happened until Friday night. 
John and I went out because Finn was at his dad's, we went to a couple places and then decided we were hungry. The place we were going to go had a really long wait and we decided to go somewhere else. As soon as we left the parking lot we had the low tire pressure light come on and our PSI was dropping as we were driving. We went to the gas station and there was a huge nail in our tire. So John patched it up and then we went to dinner. It was quite the adventure if I do say so myself.
Other than that, we made mangonadas, tried a new salsa recipe, and I tried sushi! I do not like crab but I liked the salmon and the veggie one. 
Now it's Monday and I forgot to finish this so I'm finishing it, playing Animal Crossing and trying to get Finn to do his work all at once. I need caffeine!

Unbirthday by Liz Braswell
September 1st, 2020
What if Wonderland was in peril and Alice was very, very late?
Alice is different than other eighteen-year-old ladies in Kexford, which is perfectly fine with her. She'd rather spend golden afternoons with her trusty camera or in her aunt Vivian's lively salon, ignoring her sister's wishes that she stop all that "nonsense" and become a "respectable" member of society. Alice is happy to meander to Miss. Yao's teashop or to visit the children playing in the Square. She's also interested in learning more about the young lawyer she met there, but just because she's curious, of course, not because he was sweet and charming.

But when Alice develops photographs she has recently taken about town, familiar faces of old suddenly appear in the place of her actual subjects-the Queen of Hearts, the Mad Hatter, the Caterpillar. There's something eerily off about them, even for Wonderland creatures. And as Alice develops a self-portrait, she finds the most disturbing image of all-a badly-injured dark-haired girl asking for Alice's help. Mary Ann.

Returning to the place of nonsense from her childhood, Alice finds herself on a mission to stop the Queen of Hearts' tyrannical rule and to find her place in both worlds. But will she able to do so . . . before the End of Time?

Top Ten Tuesday: I'd Watch This

Top Ten is an original feature/weekly meme originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by The Artsy Reader Girl that features a great bookish top ten every week.

Books that should be made into shows/movies

I didn't like this weeks Top Ten, so I did last week's since I derped and did an old prompt last week.
Also this was hard because there's so many I'd love to watch.

These would make great series
Brave New Girl (Brave New Girl, #1)The Selection (The Selection, #1)The Loners (Quarantine, #1)Gone (Gone, #1)

And these would make great movies
I Hunt Killers (I Hunt Killers, #1)The NamedEliza and Her MonstersEverland (Everland, #1)Undead Girl Gang

I really only watch TV shows so these would make great shows. 

I Hunt Killers (I Hunt Killers, #1)Wicked Lovely (Wicked Lovely, #1)The NamedThe Body Finder (The Body Finder, #1)The Naturals (The Naturals, #1)Obsidian (Lux, #1)
