What I've Been Reading, Watching & Listening To

Hello! Me again, surprise surprise. I'm so busy at the moment but I'm grabbing a quick moment between working on my uni presentation and photography project to write a little post to try and get me back in to the swing of things. I have a list of post ideas that I just need to get photos for that will hopefully manage to take me over the festive season! Since I last posted I finally managed to get a job and am now a sales assistant in Miss Selfridge! I'm so happy I got this and I'm loving it at the moment, even though it's very tiring.
Anyway, on to the real deal.

What I've Been Reading

Cell by Stephen King
It has to be said that Stephen King is my all time favourite author. I blame my mum. Between us we have his entire body of work and I'm slowly making my through all of them. (My favourite so far is 11.22.63 if you were wondering!) Cell is classic King, beautifully written, terrifying and obsessive. I thought it would be your run of the mill zombie apocalypse scenario but it was just so much more. I would seriously recommend this to anyone who doesn't mind a bit of a fright and wants a decent read.
Other Stephen King books I would recommend include Carrie, The Shining, The Stand, The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption, Under The Dome (think The Simpsons movie but gorier), The Mist and The Tommyknockers.

What I've Been Listening To

I didn't originally think this would be an album I would like, but after the insanely catchy We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (like, ever) I decided to give it a chance. I'm not going to lie I don't love the entire album but I just can't stop listening to three songs in particular - We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, I Knew You Were Trouble and Starlight.

What I've Been Watching

Let's be honest, not many people haven't been watching Skyfall. I am one of the millions who loved this film, however I really didn't expect it to be as long! Daniel Craig is gorgeous although looking a bit rough in this and Judi Dench is as amazing as ever. This film was - to use one of my least favourite phrases - a total rollercoaster of emotions and I would seriously recommend you go see it as soon as possible if you haven't already! Possibly one of my favourite Bond films. (Out of the whole four I've actually seen the whole way through...)

That's just a little glimpse of what I've been doing lately, I've also been watching Katy Perry: Part Of Me pretty much every night a hell of a lot. My brand new Unlimited Premium card came through this week and I'm hoping to go see a few films this week - on my list are Silver Linings and Breaking Dawn. Woooo I'm so happy I finally posted again!

Lots of love



  1. I've never actually been able to get into a Stephen King book :/ I'm going to make another try with The Shining x

  2. I NEED to see Skyfall, i've heard it's amazing and Daniel Craig is amazingly beautiful!
