Etiquette lessons, anyone? ;)

Happy Monday/ Tuesday! ;)

Thanks to Downton Abbey, I am now soooo interested in reading all about etiquette and manners -- the ladies on that show make being proper and lady-like look so cool, don't they?

What's on your reading list?

  4. Right now I´m reading "The Lost Symbol" by Dan Brown - less than 100 pages left! Awesome book! Read it in 4 days (if i finish tonight, what I definitely plan on doing!!)

    Afterwards I read book no. 10 from the Sookie Stackhouse novels.

    This book was really awesome, too: http://grapefruitprincess.blogspot.com/2012/02/time-of-my-life.html

  11. Speaking of 'Downton Abbey', I'm finally watching it! I'm still on Season 1, but it's so good already!

    I've got tons of magazines to read and I'll be reading Out of Sight, Out of Time (the 5th book of the Gallagher Girls series) as soon as I get it from the library. :)

    Lots of love, B
