I don‘t know why, but I love when people from large cities move to Alaska for work and end up falling in love with the people and town they move to. Perhaps it‘s because watching them get used to the Alaskan winters and cold is hilarious. Currently watching Hallmark‘s “Christmas Under Wraps” #WinterGames #TheFilthyAnimals

Oh Home Alone, a classic of my childhood. This movie helped to solidify my parents decision to never have the entire family over for the holidays, as well as to never travel as one group together. Way too much chaos. #WinterGames #TheFilthyAnimals

Currently watching: Oh Hallmark. As much as I enjoy “Switched at Christmas”, you have some major errors in this movie when it comes to your wanting to portray Denver, Colorado and show the distance between parts of the Denver Metro Area. Littleton is a suburb of Denver, whereas Colorado Springs, is 80 miles south and not a suburb of the Denver Metro. #WinterGames #TheFilthyAnimals

I really enjoyed this book and Ronan Farrow‘s coverage of the Harvey Weinstein accusations and history. I learned a lot from this book, including how Harvey Weinstein, NBC and Matt Lauer were connected and that Russia was even involved (#TIL Today I Learned). Ronan‘s reporting is wonderful and I‘m glad that despite pushback from NBC that he was able to finally break the story and get the full details out there. #NFNov

Rage Becomes Her | Soraya Chemaly

I first heard about Chemaly‘s book on The Reading Women podcast. After listening to their interview with her I immediately added the book to my TBR. Having finally gotten around to reading this I found this both an informative as well as a difficult read. It made me think a lot about different situations I have found myself in while also becoming angry and disheartened at times while reading. While not for everyone, still a good read. #NFNov

I decided to read this after having read “Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit”.

I would definitely recommend reading this if you‘ve read Oranges, but be sure to read Oranges first. #NFNov

I really enjoyed this memoir by one of my favorite comedic actors, Gene Wilder. I learned a lot listening to this, for instance the fact that after filming “Young Frankenstein”, he and Teri Garr briefly dated (#TIL), along with the fact that he was married four times. I would recommend this for anyone who wants an in-depth look into his life and his work. #NFNov

I‘m sad to say that I did not know of Joy Harjo until after she was named Poet Laureate of the US, the footer Native American to be named so. Since her being named Poet Laureate, I have wanted to read something by her, thus I was excited to listen to her memoir in her own voice. I learned so much about Harjo, for instance her stepfather was abusive and kicked her and her siblings out of the house over the years. #TIL Next, read more Harjo #NFNov

After reading two fictional accounts of the Lorena Hickok and Eleanor Roosevelt relationship ship, I was intrigued to read a nonfiction accounting of their relationship. This book not only covers their relationship and friendship, but the history of the periods in which they lived and were active in. #TIL (Today I learned)was that Eleanor had same sexual relationships when she was in school. Would recommend the audiobook. #NFNov

This book was recommended by Loki: Where Mischief Lies author Mackenzi Lee and I‘m so glad she mentioned it. This was a fascinating book that examined four women and the roles they play in true crime, for every crime has its: Detective, Victim, Attorney and Killer. One of the key things I learned from this book is that there are more women in the field of forensics science than men (TIL, Today I Learned) A must for true crime fans. #NFNov

Went with my Mom today to see the Monet exhibit at the Denver Art Museum. Was a great exhibit, made even more so because we did the docent led tour which gave us some additional insight to his life and the paintings. I learned quite a lot about him that I didn‘t know. For instance today I learned, #TIL that Monet lived to be 86 years old and left behind over 2000 pieces of work. Art tour during #NFNov for the win, although I know I may not count

The heinous murder of young Emmett Till is a crime which continue to resonates in the U.S. to this day, for despite the Civil Rifghts Movement, the U.S. still has and sows the seeds of racism and injustice.

Many foreign countries were sadly not surprised by what happened or the outcome of the trial. #NFNOV #nonfictionnovember
