What I’m Into – July 2016

This is the What I’m Into link up at Leigh Kramer’s blog. Be sure to stop by and check out all the other blogs in the link up.


I’m still on my Agatha Christie kick! I read Endless Night and Death in the Clouds. If you watch Doctor Who, then you know why I chose Death in the Clouds. πŸ™‚ It was really good, and all my theories were wrong! Which is one reason I love Agatha Christie! She keeps me guessing. I chose Endless Night because, it’s one of her personal favorites! And it didn’t disappoint! I definitely had no idea where this one was going!

I also picked up the first book in Louise Penny’s Inspector Gamache series, Still Life. I’ve had so many people recommend this series to me because of my new found love for Agatha Christie. Hopefully I’ll love it!


Cap and I watched Stranger Things on Netflix! It was so good! All the kids were so perfectly awkward that you couldn’t help loving them! And Chief Hopper! He was awesome and so badass! I’m so glad that it was renewed for a season two!

We’ve also been watching Fixer Upper! I love Joanna and Chip! They are so cute! And I so want them to decorate a home for me! I love Jonanna’s style!


Cap and I celebrated our one year anniversary! My! Time has flown! Who knew that our friendship would lead to so much more?! It has been a wonderful year! Cap is the one of the best things to ever happen to me. He treats me like gold, supports my blogging/writing dreams, lets Buffy kiss him on the nose, and is everything I ever wanted! I look forward to many more anniversaries and adventures with him.

Victoria, of Oh Miss Engineer, and I swapped guest posts. I wrote about how to find your perfect wardrobe at her blog. And she wrote about how to stay active when working a desk job over here.

I also wrote about five things that I’m doing to improve my blog and I shared 7 of my favorite WordPress plugins.

So, what have you been up to? Are you an Agatha Christie fan? Any good books or shows to recommend? Did you watch Stranger Things? Any exciting news to share? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Yes, I am a huge Agatha Christie fan although it has been a while since I picked up one of her books. Might be time for a reread! Happy anniversary!!!

  2. I just discovered Fixer Upper as well. I pretty much want my life to be exactly like theirs : ) I also now have an insatiable desire to move to Waco and have a house fixed up by them! She has the most incredible decorating style!

  3. I just finished Still Life this month, and now I’m dying to read the rest of the series. What a great book! I also discovered Fixer Upper in July, and now it’s my go-to show to watch with my sister when we want something laid back. Wouldn’t it be so fun to see what Joanna could do with your house? I’ve been decorating an apartment and thinking about that. πŸ™‚

    • I ordered the next two in the series from Amazon! I can’t wait to start them! And yes it would be amazing to see with what she could do! πŸ™‚

  4. I too love Agatha Christie and have just discovered the Chief Inspector Gamache novels! I should have read them in order though, that is my one regret 😞

  5. I’m a huge mystery novel fan, and early exposure to Agatha Christie is at least partly to blame. πŸ™‚ I recently read Still Life as well, and while I wasn’t totally in love with it, I enjoyed it enough to want to continue reading the rest of the series.
