Welcome to the latest Things I’m Obsessed With!
Thanks to OnDemand, I watched the pilot of The Mindy Project and completely loved it. So much, in fact, that I have since watched it at least two more times (and no, thank you, I will NOT be more specific). I will admit to not really liking Mindy Kaling’s character on The Office, but I loved her book. I’m not really a huge fan of sitcoms but I laughed out loud so many times during the pilot and can’t wait to watch the second episode. It’ll be airing Tuesdays at 9:30 on Fox, and I think it’ll be joining Parks & Rec and 30 Rock as one of those shows that I just watch over and over.
As you probably know, I’m part of an online movie club. September is Meryl Streep month and I am super excited. Our picks are Sophie’s Choice, Out of Africa, Doubt, The Hours and The French Lieutenant’s Woman. The club itself was inspired by Mia March’s wonderful book The Meryl Streep Movie Club, and so I’m excited to finally get to see Sophie’s Choice and Out of Africa. (I’m hoping to watch at least one of them over my weekend.) I also haven’t seen The French Lieutenant’s Woman, but that isn’t as iconic as the other two. And I loved Doubt and The Hours. (I will also admit to being a little sad that nobody picked Silkwood.)
I am so excited to read Tilt (the new Ellen Hopkins novel). It came out yesterday and she is one of my absolute favorite authors. I also have her second adult novel for review, but that doesn’t come out until November so I have to wait a bit to read it. I am scheduled to review Tilt in early October so yes, technically I have to wait a bit to read this, too. Still, at least I have it. :)
I’m hoping it’ll somehow “accidentally” move up in the TBR pile…
So what are you obsessed with this week?
