So I have been meaning to do a post like this for a while. On the youtube channel I do a currently reading and currently watching korean dramas from time to time. I thought I would do something similar on the blog!
Since this is a book blog, let's start off with this one. These are the books that I am currently reading at the time of making this post. I am
I am 100 pages into Into the Darkest Corner and boy is it addicting. This is an adult mystery thriller and it is super creepy and unsettling. I am buddy reading it and I'm having so much fun with all the theorizing going on.
I am only on the second chapter of A Great and Terrible Beauty. This is the book club pick with the awesome GTA girls and I wasn't 100% impressed with the first chapter. Still, it is set in a boarding school, in England… and there are supernatural elements involved.
Are you ready? there are several shows I'm currently watching right now. Some I do watch but I have paused, or they're on hiatus, so this won't be as long as mentioning everything that I watch. Other tv shows I watched not pictured (The Good Wife, Revenge, Awkward, and Madam Secretary)
Grey's Anatomy: This show tugs at my heartstrings like no other show has ever done. I pretty much cry on every.single.episode. The show also gets better and better with each new season
Reign: A new addition to my watch list. I'm also up to date and I am loving the 16th century setting as well as the strong female protagonist.
The Mentalist: I am two episodes behind, but this show aired its series finale on the third week of february. I am so sad that it's over because I love Patrick Jane and the whole team.
The 100: Another new addition. The newest actually. Surprisingly when I first watched episode one, I truly disliked the show, but I picked it up several months later and marathon-ed the whole thing. Bellarke all the way and I truly love the strong female protagonist in this show too.
Nashville: A show I never thought I would enjoy but surprisingly it is addicting. I ended up marathoning all three seasons last year and now I'm up to date. I do get frustrated with Raina's story arc but other than that, it is highly enjoyable. Have I mentioned it centers around country musicians?
Modern Family: This show never gets old. Its writing is witty, funny, and laugh out loud. I honestly hope it never gets cancelled.
The Mindy Project: This show had its ups and downs but the last couple of episodes were superb. I love Mindy Kaling and anything she writes and is involved in is guaranteed to be hilarious
Jane the Virgin: One of the few fall shows I picked up for 2014-2015. The telenovela feel of it is what makes it so unique. Also Rafael's handsome face doesn't hurt.
Healer: I am on episode 18 of this superb drama. I will probably be done with the whole drama (20 episodes) by the time this post is up. I had my doubts initially about it but the writing and the acting proved me wrong. I love how engaging and addicting the show is.
Pride and Prejudice: I seem to only have around two to three episodes but this show suffers from an overload of information syndrome. I am so lost. So much politics and conspiring going on that I've pretty much given up on understanding what the hell is going on. I will be finishing it because I do want to figure out who's the bad guy in the show and the murder mystery too.
Here are some potential korean dramas I'll be checking out
Jekyll and Hyde: A drama about a CEO of a theme park that suffers from split personality
Heart to Heart: About a girl with a social phobia that suffers from severe blushing
Kill Me, Heal Me: About a guy with seven different personalities
Spy: A mother, son drama where one is a spy for North Korea, the other for South Korea
it has not escaped my attention that 3 of these 4 dramas center around psychological/mental illnesses. I am ver excited to see how the korean drama world tackles such topics! Also, Spy has Kim Jaejoong as the lead. That's all I need to know.. but with the bonus of a spy plot? i'm in.
I pretty much get all my music through Songza's blogged 200 playlist. I'm telling you guys, this is the best thing ever.
I am currently obsessed with The Do. I listen to both Trustful Hands and Despair constantly.
I'm also listening to Kiesza's Sound of a Woman album on repeat.
A couple of other songs I discovered on Songza I think you should check out
And that's a wrap!
