What Would Olivia Pope Read? The Little Black Book of Wine #WWOPR | 24 Days until #Scandal

#WhereisOlivaPope? According to my math, Olivia Pope and Jake Ballard are at a beach somewhere. They are drinking wine, eating popcorn, making out, and planning their next steps.

Gladiators, I was glad to find out that it wasn't just me thinking it: Olivia doesn't seem to consume much food - except for wine and popcorn. Well, I guess she eats the occasional hamburger for Jake's sake now. LOL!

"Jake Plays Olivia's Pretend Boyfriend: Jake dutifully arrives at Olivia's apartment to continue their relationship ruse, but draws some firm lines around the topics of real food and what Liv cannot tell him to do." - Hulu

Scandal: From Season 3 Episode 12 | Aired on 03/06/2014 | TV-14

We learned in a Scandal flashback that Rowan (Olivia's father) opened her eyes and taste buds to the world of wine. In honor of that moment, I would add The Little Black Book of Wine by Elizabeth Poyet to Olivia's beach ereader.

"The Little Black Book of Wine: A Simple Guide to the World of Wine serves up everything you need to know about wine, minus the pretense. Demystifies lingo and lore and teaches how to serve, preserve, store, and evaluate wines.

Covers wine terms, developing your wine sense, types of grapes, and wines of France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Austria, U.S., Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Argentina, and Chile.

It's a mini tour guide to wine country and beyond!"

What Would Olivia Pope Read #WWOPR

Olivia is always so busy. She doesn't get many chances to enjoy a little quiet time. I'd recommend that she get in some reading while hanging out at the beach.

I am counting down the days until Scandal's season four premiere by suggesting books for Olivia's beach ereader. They'll be books that a gladiator might enjoy. You know, based on stuff from the show.

Do you watch Scandal? Care to join me? What books would you suggest for Olivia's beach ereader? Check out my #WWOPR posts.

Where is Olivia Pope?


I am listening to The Red Dragon as part of the Travel the World in Books Readathon. It is set in China. So right now, I am thinking that Olivia and Jake are on a beach in China, like Bo'ao Yudai Beach. Bo'ao Yudai is tropical and isn't plagued with tourists. The perfect place to lay low until they decide their next steps.
