I’m reading again, so that’s great! For a few weeks I was in this weird place of wanting to read everything, so I was reading nothing, but I’ve moved past that, and I’m onto my fifth book for the month! You’ll have to wait for my wrap-up to find out what all the books are. Luckily, I’ve enjoyed everything I read, and the shows – been really enjoying them as well. I love getting lost in stories, as do we all.
Eyes on Me – Rachel Harris – PB
I’m only about 100 pages into this book and I can kind of already pinpoint what the big conflict is going to be, but so far, I am loving this book! This doesn’t surprise me as. I am a fan of Rachel Harris’s and her YA contemporaries are some of my favorites. I contemplated keeping this book for when I go to the beach at the end of summer, as I love to read contemporaries on vacation, but I couldn’t wait any longer to dive in!
Allied – Amy Tintera – Audiobook via Audible
I started my physical copy of this book forever ago and for whatever reason, never got around to finishing it. Not to mention here was no audiobook for it yet, and I had listened to the first two and really liked the narrator. Well, now there’s an audiobook! I can’t wait to dive into it and finally finish this amazing trilogy!
Now for shows!
Lucifer – Netflix
Twitter made me do it. And I’m loving it. Normally crime shows can drag on (for me) and I lose interest very quickly…more so if I’m bingeing them. I prefer them as a week by week basis, but Lucifer is great. I love the whole cast and can’t get enough of it. When Lucifer sings…I die.
Vikings – Amazon Prime
I’ve been watching this with my family and with the second half of season 5 finally available for streaming, we’re catching up. Certain characters just need to go, be knocked down like ten thousand pegs, or just die. The show’s getting a little tedious and it’s really moved away from what it was in the beginning.
Liv & Maddie – Netflix
Judge all you want, but Dove Cameron is a pretty good actress and I just wanted something light and fun to watch when I needed a break. Something that didn’t need me to pay attention to every detail. Also, it’s just a pretty good show, full of sassy characters, music and silly plots. Definitely a good show to unwind with.
The 100 – CW/Live TV
It’s back! Waiting each week for episodes sucks – especially after bingeing the first five(?) seasons, but so far I’m enjoying this new one, and I’m interested in seeing where it goes from here.
QOTD: What have you been watching and reading? I’m always looking for new recs!
