Q1 2015: music, books, and tv

Can you believe that we're a quarter of the way into 2015?

How is that POSSIBLE?

January, February and March were cold, snowy, and good for consuming things. Here are my highlights.

TELEVISION

Better Call Saul 

Do I dare say it? That this show has hit the ground running and might be filling the Breaking Bad shaped hole in my heart?

The Jinx

Finished this show last night. Wow. That's all I have to say.

The Great British Bake Off

I've raved about this show before, but seriously, it's amazing. Here's a taste of it's greatness.


I wish I could say that I've watched The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and loved it, but I started the first episode and was definitely not in the mood. Will try again. 

I have to say that this season of GIRLS has been dreadful. Anyone else out there think so? Where is it going?! No plot and no real character development. When will I put myself out of my misery with that thing...I need an intervention.The only reason I watch it now is for the soundtrack, which I have to say is fabulous.

MUSIC

Here are some songs that I PLAYED OUT. Like on repeat all day, every day.

Just Kids // Mat Kearney

Love Me Like You Do // Ellie Goulding

What Kind of Man // Florence + the Machine
I'm a Ruin // Marina and the Diamonds

BOOKS

Leaving Before the Rains Come // Alexandra Fuller
The Neapolitan Novels by Elena Ferrante
The Imaginarary // A.F. Harrold

I've blabbered about the first two picks enough, but The Imaginary. OH MY GOODNESS. It's kids book, but not so much. Scary, scary, scary. Read it.


You can listen to my Winter 2015 playlist on Spotify here.

Looking forward to lots of fun stuff this spring...aka the MAD MEN final season.

Happy reading, watching, and listening.
