These are the pop culture items I consumed this week. Without further ado:
Obvious Child: I made J. watch this with me this weekend, and he seemed to like it a great deal. It held up for me on my second viewing. This is a standout movie, and definitely one of my favorites of the year. LOVE IT.
The Girlfriend by Abigail Barnette: So in one of my internet click-hole sessions, I stumbled across the blog of author (and very funny person) Jenny Trout, whose star rose quite a bit when she did in-depth recaps of the 50 Shades of Grey books. I’ve been reading her recaps because they’re hilarious and hit all the same issues I have with the books themselves (not even talking about the quality of writing). But Trout also writes erotica under the pen name of Abigail Barnette, and she’s written a series of BDSM erotica novels that feel like a response to 50 Shades. And…they’re kind of excellent. So I’ve been devouring them. This is the second in the series, and it was nearly as fun as the first.
