I love reading on my Ipad at night so I’ve been very happy with this service. In just a week, I read 3 books. The first that I recommend is Before I Fall by  Lauren Oliver.

Before I Fall The Friday Five: Oyster, Music, Sweetgreen, Watermelon Salad, and GIFs!

DescriptionFor popular high school senior Samantha Kingston, February 12—”Cupid Day”—should be one big party, a day of valentines and roses and the privileges that come with being at the top of the social pyramid. And it is…until she dies in a terrible accident that night. However, she still wakes up the next morning. In fact, Sam lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she ever imagined.

2. Listening: New favorite: Stay High (Habits remix) by Tove Lo and Hippie Sabotage.

3. Eating: Third time’s a charm seemed to be true for Sweetgreen. After two visits that were just so so, I gave the chain another chance at their Chestnut Hill location. The July special was much better than the salads from my previous visits.sweetgreen boston july salad special 500x375 The Friday Five: Oyster, Music, Sweetgreen, Watermelon Salad, and GIFs!

4. Bookmarking: Snap Pea, Watermelon, and Edamame Salad with Sesame Vinaigrette from Joy The Baker. I can’t even imagine what this flavor combo would be like, but I can only hope it’s delicious.

    I always get the same salad at Sweetgreen (the one with avocado and tortilla chips hehe) but now I want to try this July special. Happy Friday!

  • Tiffany

    I was so surprised when you originally posted about Sweetgreen. I LOVE it. It’s funny that our July seasonal salad is so different than what you guys have up there (I’m in the DC area). Ours is “organic mesclun + organic baby spinach with local peaches, local goat
    cheese, toasted almonds and organic basil; topped with our housemade
    balsamic vinaigrette.” Holy YUM.

  • Sheanna Caban

    I think I need to sign up for Oyster! Thanks for passing that nugget of fabulous along! What a great thing for both Avory and I to share!

    That “where’s the food” Ramona gif is SO ME! I read Before I Fall not too long ago – I’m a big Lauren Oliver fan!

  • Alexis T

    Love Lauren Oliver! All of her books are so good. I’m a big teen lit fan, and her stuff really gets at that age and tackles some tough issues.

    No lie. We were watching that new show on Starz about the big drug dealer in New York and it’s produced by 50 cent so naturally the theme song in the beginning is amazing. I pretty much had a moment where I completely forgot Mark was in the room and I started jamming out to myself on the couch…..and I looked over and he was just staring at me…..couch dancing is the best am I right?

    Oooh your salad looks real good. I want that. I’m reading “Dark Places” right now and I’m digging it. I lovve reading. I should join Oyster.
