January Recap

I had fun this month and I'm just so glad 2015 is over and my ~depressed days~ are far behind me!


Blog

Still not as active as I'd prefer on my blog but I'd take what I can get. I'd rather be on the threshold of being active and inactive than having reading and reviewing slumps that last for monthsssss.


Cover Reveal | Right of First Refusal by Dahlia Adler


Reviews

4 stars | Up to this Pointe by Jennifer Longo | Wolf in White Van by John Darnielle


Music

NEW DISCOVERY!!!! January = BØRNS


Basically, January was me listening to BØRNS and a bit of Troye Sivan. And even though I hate to admit it, Selena Gomez. HAHAHA

And of course I cried my heart out with One Direction's History music video.



TV

I finished three shows this month! Granted, they were all short ones and sitcoms too but YAY!



Silicon Valley

LOVE LOVE LOVE SILICON VALLEY. So excited for the third season this April! Jared bb 4eva HAHAHA This show saved me from feeling down. I started this upon recommendations of friends and I'm just so glad I did!



Mozart in the Jungle

This was easy to watch but I only started truly liking it in its second season. The first season was unimpressive and stilted for me. It didn't feel real and I didn't connect with the characters. But oh boy, I'm glad I still gave it a chance and watched the second season. Looking forward to the third season! (The poster looks misleading. It's not a fantasy. HAHA)



Scrotal Recall

GOOD LORD YOU GUYS IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN ME RAVE ABOUT THIS ON TWITTER AND FACEBOOK THEN PLEASE JUST WATCH IT. It's my new favorite romcom/sitcom because despite that title, it's not at all crude, guys. Give it a chance. It's so full of heart and just, I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT SO MUCH I'VE WATCHED IT FOUR TIMES ALREADY BECAUSE YES THAT'S HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS. ALL THE FEELS PLEASE.


Films

My Bebe Love: #KiligPaMore (2015)
Say Anything (1989)
Italo (2014)

How did your January go? Any film, TV, or music recommendations? More importantly, what great books did you read this month?

  1. The cover of Wolf in White Van is so amazing! I may have to look into that one just because I love the cover so much. Mozart in the Jungle looks really interesting. I may have to check it out! I hope you have a good February! :D

    1. IKR! Wolf in White Van's cover is so amazingly simple yet captivating. Tell me if you do end up watching Mozart in the Jungle and let's compare notes! Hee.
