Check in Thursdays: Week 25

Watching... ABC Family -- Jane By Design, Pretty Little Liars, Bunheads.
Listening... So I've become a little obsessed with the ease of buying music on and having it go straight to the Cloud Player.  This week I bought the Grouplove album, Never Trust a Happy Song, because I really like the song "Tongue Tied."  I also bought the Walk the Moon album, Walk the Moon, because I really like "Anna Sun."
Reading... Finished The Glassblower of Murano and enjoyed it enough that I really want to blog about it. We'll see if I ever actually get around to doing so. Then read the summer trilogy by Jenny Han (young adult fiction, of course) and really enjoyed it: The Summer I Turned Pretty, It's Not Summer Without You, and We'll Always Have Summer.  Easy reads and I really enjoyed them. (So much so that I read all 3 in one evening on Monday!)

Watching... Caught with the rest of the first season of Girls, which was interesting, to say the least. Maybe one of these days I'll write a more complete post about it.
Listening... Just started a new audiobook, The Penderwicks at Point Mouette. Third in this super cute children's book series.
Reading... Finished both The Help, which was a quick, fun read (I can finally watch the movie now!) and Born to Run, which was actually really fascinating. Next up is A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness, which seems crazy, and Habibi by Craig Thompson (a graphic novel).


burkie said... seasons of Necessary Roughness and Royal Pains.
listening & reading...Turn Coat by Jim Butcher on CD. it's the 10th book in the Harry Dresden series, but the first one i've ever read/listened to before. i find it's no problem to follow along. i'm not in love with it, but i haven't turned it off yet, either.

Watching: Torchwood. Just finished three series of it, currently searching for the fourth series. Don't love it as much as Doctor Who, but still like it enough to want more Captain Jack Harkness.

Listening: Perfect Symmetry album by Keane, "Black Burning Heart" on replay.

Reading: Will be starting "A Wrinkle In Time" soon. I never read it as a kid, but I've heard great things about it.
