What I've Been Reading, Watching and Listening To Lately

I haven’t wrote a blog post about what I’ve been reading, watching and listening to lately for a few months now so I thought it was about time I talked about what I've been loving recently. Because I'm still unwell with a few health problems and the doctors have basically fobbed me off for two months with some pills that don't really help that much it's safe to say that I've been watching a lot of Netflix because I'm constantly feeling drained and just pretty shit to be honest, hence why my blog keeps going quiet for days at a time. Anyway I've found an new TV show which I love (and also binge-watched my way through the whole 4 seasons), I also decided to rewatch one of my favourite shows, fell back in love with Spotify and found some new songs to listen to on repeat until I get sick of hearing them and also picked up an interesting book.


First is up what I’ve been reading lately and well, to be honest that’s a big fat zero. I just haven’t been in the mood to read to be honest. I have just picked up a book about crystals called ‘The Power Of Crystal Healing’ because I’m intrigued to see if crystals can actually help to heal health problems as the majority of this year I’ve been unwell and nothing seems to be working for me so it’s kind of a last resort because I literally feel like I'm losing my mind now. I'm planning on trying out crystal healing for maybe two or three weeks and then seeing how I feel. I'm also planning on maybe doing a blog post all about it and if I think it worked or not, so keep a look out for that if you're interested in seeing how I get on.


A few months ago I tweeted that I was looking for some new TV shows to watch and a lot of people suggested Jane The Virgin and I've just finished it and all up to date and I love it. I totally get why so many people suggested it. Rogelio (Jane's Dad, if you don't know the show) is definitely my fave character, he's so funny and OTT. Also for anyone who does watch it... that Season 4 finale cliffhanger. WHAT. THE. ACTUAL. HELL. I did not expect that at all! I can't wait for Season 5, even though it's the last season *sob*.

Last year I finally got around to watching My Mad Fat Diary and I loved it so much that I decided to watch it again lol. It's just one of those shows which everyone can kind of relate to, one way or another and it also has some great music (i.e The Smiths, Oasis, The Stone Roses etc etc). 

I actually watched the 2017 version of Dirty Dancing with Abigail Breslin aka Olive in Little Miss Sunshine playing Baby and it wasn't as soul destroying as I thought it would be lol. Yeah, it was nowhere near as good as the original and the Johnny in the new version is nothing like Patrick Swayze in the original but it wasn't bad and I think it would watch it again.

The Handmaid's Tale is probably one of the most weird and twisted shows on TV right now but it's so good and it's just one of those shows that hooks you in. It's basically set in the near future and the government has been overthrown by Christian theonomy and it follows June who is now "Offred" who is now a handmaid and been separated from her family. Because of declining birth rates and infertility the handmaids are forced to produce children for the ruling class. If you haven't seen it then I definitely recommend giving it a watch. I think you can watch the first season on Sky box sets and also NOW TV. 

Listening To...

I've loved Blossoms for literally years now, their first album has basically been the soundtrack to my Summer for the past two years and a few of their songs are literally some of my all-time faves. So when they released their second album, of course I downloaded it straight away. I do really like it, but I do prefer their first one over the new one but it's nice to listen to new music from them. 

Friendly Fires are the ultimate throwback band to me, I used to always listen to them throughout high school so when they came back with a new song "Love Like Waves" I was so excited, I love that it's a catchy Summer song too. I can't wait for more songs from them.

  2. I binged watched the new series of Schitt's Creek (on Netflix. Highly recommend) and I need to catch up on Humans and The Handmaids Tale. I haven't got round to reading much recently but it's definitely something I need to do more of.
