Currently I'm...#22

I've actually got 4 books on the go at the moment so feel free to hate me a little bit because I sure do. I really need to just dedicate a couple of days to getting all the books I'm reading finished so I can start a new one and focus on it. The 4 books in question are How To Be Both by Ali Smith, The Art Of Creative Thinking by Rod Judkins, Ayoade On Ayoade: A Cinematic Odyssey by Richard Ayoade, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling. I'm genuinely loving all of them so I'm not sure why I haven't finished any. I'm trying to re-read the first three Harry Potter books so I can get on with the rest of the series. I have a lot of reading to do.

Listening To:
I've been getting back in touch with my past wanna-be scene kid and listening to the bands I loved when I was 13 and 14. I actually made a playlist called 'That Time I Tried To Be Scene', including Sleeping With Sirens, Pierce The Veil, Mayday Parade, Death Cab For Cutie, You Me At Six, Boys Like Girls, All Time Low and a whole lot of Patty Walters covers. It's a real blast from the past and I freaking love it. I've also been getting back into Relient K and alt-J. It's been fun. 

I don't usually talk about films in these posts but I watched Frances Ha last night and it was really brilliant so I felt like it needed a mention. Series-wise, I finally started watching Buffy and it's every bit as good as I was expecting, and I've been keeping up-to-date with season 6 of Pretty Little Liars but I'm not enjoying this season anywhere near as much as the past seasons. I'm a big PLL fan but I'm feeling like 6 seasons is verging on excessive. I'm kinda losing interest with who A is because it's went on for so damn long. I feel bad for saying that...sorry.

What have you been loving recently?


  1. Death Cab for Cutie <3
    I've been loving spending less time reading. That sounds weird coming from a book blogger. But your post on films inspired me to actually sit and watch some films on my Netflix list - Remember Sunday was my favourite so far, it's beautiful. And going away to Wales for 5 days reminded me that I don't have to be reading all the time - I can be doing other things, I just need to find them (I still haven't found them yet) xx

    1. I can completely relate - sometimes reading can feel like a bit of a chore when you're a book-blogger so it's important to do other things too! Hope you had a lovely time in Wales xx

  2. I didn't know you haven't read Harry Potter before? I'm insanely jealous you get to experience it for the first time haha. :) I have a copy of Ayoade On Ayoade & I've been meaning to read it for ages. I don't know why I haven't started it yet because I loved both Submarine and The Double (I've also met him before and he was a really, really lovely person). I hope you enjoy How to Be Both! I really liked it. :)

    I'm so glad you've started Buffy! I hope you enjoy it. It only gets better and better! ;)

    1. Yep, I've only read the first three! You should give Ayoade on Ayoade a go; it's absolutely hilarious. I'm a huge Richard Ayoade fan, you're so lucky to have met him!
      Buffy's great so far! ♥

  3. Hey there, I only read harry potter. At this moment I am reading Stephan King's Mr. Mercedes. I came by to tell you that I find your blog very awesome and we kinda have the same taste. ( I have seen ATL 3 times live, and loved boys like girls and mayday parade a few years ago). So that you know, you have a new fan!

    1. Oh my goodness, thank you Janka! ♥


Your comments make my day ♥
