A Second Helping of GReads! Interrupted.
Sometimes I want to share things with my followers that aren't necessarily a book review, so I thought I'd create a sporadic feature on my blog to do just that. GReads! Interrupted. is a personal reflection of me -- music I'm listening to, something I recently purchased & want to show off, or even just a random thought that I feel is worthy of sharing. This is meant to be a fun break from the usual reviews + a chance for my followers to get to know me a bit more. Hope you enjoy!
I've had this song on constant repeat for the past few weeks. There's something so hypnotic about it that I love so much. Give it a listen & let me know what you think. If you like it, download a copy for yourself here.

In case you missed the big news, Pearl Jam released a new album this week. I think I'll always be a fan of their music, so I'm a bit biased.. but I do hope you'll give Lightning Bolt a listen. Their first single 'Sirens' is probably my favorite on the album. You can download the album here.

I've come to realize that I'm a seasonal baker. And my favorite season to bake things is during the fall. There's something about the seasonal ingredients that just make me crave certain things like pumpkin, apples, nutmeg, cinnamon + so much more. I've been attempting some new recipes & below are two that were oh so yummy! Pumpkin chocolate chip bread & apple crisp [thanks to Jennie for the recipe!]
Do you bake during the fall? Have any recipes you want to share? I'm always open to trying new things! Another favorite during the fall is seasonal beers. I have not tried as many as I'd like this season, but a go-to favorite is always pumpkin ale. I'm wanting to try more ciders, but never know which to consider. Have any recommendations? Thanks!
Even though I haven't had the time to actually write, it's something that still lingers in my head. I'll hear a song, see a movie, or talk with a friend which can lead to inspirations for new story ideas. Just recently I was talking to Estelle about an article we both read here. I felt a personal connection to it because the story is something near & dear to my own heart. Estelle mentioned that maybe one day I should write about it. Now she may have just meant journaling my thoughts, but my creative mind took it one step further and saw a potential story idea there. Some of the best writing advice I've received is: Write what you know. And this topic here is definitely something I know.
So.. new story idea? Possibly. We'll see where this one takes me.
