Check in Thursdays: Week 1

This year, we're going to use our weekly joint blog posts to keep track of what we're watching/listening/reading.  Figured this was an easy way to keep our weekly posts going and also a great way to track our year!

Watching... ABC Family. Returning: Switched at Birth, Pretty Little Liars, The Lying Game. New: Jane by Design.
Listening... Adele's "Fire to the Rain." Hear it every now and then on the radio and really like it, along with all of her other singles. Maybe I should just get the entire season one of these days.
Read... Just finished over the holidays: Book 2 in Rick Riordan's Heroes of Olympus Series, Son of Neptune. As always, a fun read!

Watching... Game of Thrones, season 1. The series is very faithful to the book and the casting was really spot-on, especially Daenerys, Tyrion, and Arya. I do wonder how different my experience would be not having read the book though...I'm generally a huge proponent of reading the source material before any TV/film adaptations but when you think about it, it's kind of just another form of spoilers?
Listening... Craig Finn - Rented Room
Reading... A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin..despite my musings about reading the book basically being spoilers for the TV series.
