What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, Mid-April 2022 Edition

| April 13, 2022

Reading: Continuing to work my way through books for review and Stephen Fry’s The Ode Less Travelled. Watching: Moon Knight is now running weekly episodes, so we’re watching that, even though I know basically nothing about the character. I would watch Oscar Isaac read the phone book, especially if he’s playing around with accents while he does. […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, March 2022 Edition

| March 2, 2022

Reading: Books to review, and The Ode Less Travelled by Stephen Fry. Watching: We’re getting back into some of the shows we’d put aside when other shows dropped in full. So it’s some Hanna, some Nancy Drew, and whatever else we’re feeling like. Listening To: It’s mostly Stray Kids right now, to be honest. Though there are some […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, February 2022

| February 2, 2022

Reading: I’ve got a few new books I’m reading for reviews these days–one anthology and one novel. Reviews for those will be popping up next month! Watching: We cruised through The Witcher season 2, though we wish we hadn’t finished it quite so quickly, knowing how much of a wait there will be before we get […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, January 2022

| January 12, 2022

Reading: I’m in a weird place between having read a bunch of books over the holidays (with travel and whatnot) and not having picked up anything new yet. So at the moment, I’m not reading anything. And it’s weird. Maybe I can tackle some of my graphic novels finally! Watching: We finished Hawkeye, and we started […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, December 2021

| December 8, 2021

Reading: Books for reviews, mostly. Not as much as I’d like to be reading, either. Watching: We recently watched the new Dune movie and loved that. We also flew through the first season of The Witcher, and we’re looking forward to the second season. We’ve started on Hawkeye (I adore Kate Bishop so much!). And we’re watching the […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, November 2021 Edition

| November 10, 2021

Reading: I’ve been cruising through books for reviews recently, as I got several review requests in a row. Then I’ll move on to some books I picked up because they looked awesome (and I’ll review those too). Watching: We tore through the final episodes of Lucifer (SO GOOD), so we’re awaiting Hawkeye soon, plus miscellaneous episodes […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, October 2021 Edition

| October 6, 2021

Reading: I didn’t get to my graphic novels last month, so that’s happening now, slowly but surely. Watching: A bunch of our shows from September have either ended or are wrapping up soon, so we’re mostly watching Nancy Drew and His Dark Materials in spurts. Listening To: A lot of old favorites, interspersed with occasional new-to-me groups! […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, September 2021 Edition

| September 1, 2021

Reading: Books to review, and a stack of graphic novels are in my near future. Watching: We’ve been watching The Owl House when new blocks of episodes drop, Marvel’s What If?, Reservation Dogs, and we’re looking forward to the final season of Lucifer later this month. Also fitting in other things when we have time! Listening To: My latest […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, August 2021

| August 11, 2021

Reading: Still reading books to review them, but they’re books from my ginormous to be read pile at the moment. And books that I suddenly decide I must have. Current read is “Daughter of Time” by Josephine Tey, which is from 1951. But it’s a historical mystery, and it’s pretty interesting! Watching: More Owl House dropped, […]

What I’m Reading, Watching, and Listening To, July 2021 Edition

| July 7, 2021

Reading: Aside from books for reviews, I’ve been poking at some H. P. Lovecraft fiction and related materials. I read “The Colour Out of Space” because a friend had referenced it and I thought it might work to reference it in a story I’m planning. Having never read Lovecraft before, my reactions to it were, […]
