happy Sunday! I hope you are enjoying your weekend and you are not snowed in.
Please check out my friend Celeste's post here where she talks about 10 things from around the world. You don't want to miss that.
1. A book series.
There is a book series called "Rivers of London" by Ben Aaronovitch which is under the top 20 of my to-read-list. And that means something because that list is huge.
On the cover it says "What would happen if Harry Potter grew up and joined the Fuzz". I think this was enough to make me want to start reading the series. I am planning to download the first book at some point today and start reading it. Here is what it's about (according to Goodreads):
"Probationary Constable Peter Grant dreams of being a detective in London's Metropolitan Police. Too bad his superior plans to assign him to the Case Progression Unit, where the biggest threat he'll face is a paper cut. But Peter's prospects change in the aftermath of a puzzling murder, when he gains exclusive information from an eyewitness who happens to be a ghost. Peter's ability to speak with the lingering dead brings him to the attention of Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Nightingale, who investigates crimes involving magic and other manifestations of the uncanny. Now, as a wave of brutal and bizarre murders engulfs the city, Peter is plunged into a world where gods and goddesses mingle with mortals and long-dead evil is making a comeback on a rising tide of magic."
Em gave it 6 out of 10 points so I try not to have my hopes up too high but the story sounds so interesting that I need to check it out myself. You can find her review here.
2. This shirt.
Star Wars and vegan. Perfect combination. Yoda has always been my favorite character so I think this is pretty cool. It is from an Etsy shop called sitproperly. I wish I could buy everything from Etsy I want.
3. A vegan butcher.
This story sounds kind of strange. A butcher from Frankfurt, Germany who went vegan last summer decided to start producing and selling vegan counterparts of his normal meaty products. It is such a success that he decided to open a store which only sells vegan products soon. People travel from far away to get his vegan ground "meat" made of rice or wurst made of buckwheat. He says he sells more vegan meat than regular meat now. I hope that means that he will stop being a butcher at all and concentrates on the vegan "meat". I don't really know how you can combine that because I clearly could not slaughter any animals. But I like the fact that a butcher became vegan and started producing products for vegans. Yay for that. You can find the whole story here. Unfortunately it is only in German.
4. This necklace.
It is the "In my heart" sheep necklace from Vaute Couture, a company I really adore because they sell the most beautiful all vegan dresses made of recycled materials. And I really like anything sheep-related.
5. This mustard.
You know, I always get addicted to different kind of foods and then I want to eat nothing else but that...well, my newest food addiction is fig mustard. I can't even describe how it tastes but it is fruity and spicy and yummy. I just dip it with bread, that is how good it is.
I hope you are having a fantastic Sunday!
