What I’ve Been Watching #6

As Summer comes to an end, TV season officially kicks in again. I’ll be the first to admit that one of the reasons I love the Autumn so much is because TV simply gets better this time of year. Before we dive into the new TV season, I thought now would be a perfect moment to spotlight my Summertime viewings.

What I’ve Been Watching #5 – Movie Magic

Usually, I feature both the film and TV shows I’ve been watching recently. However, with this slump I’m in I’ve found myself watching a lot more than usual. It also helps that at the moment we have a temporary home cinema set up in our very own living room. There is nothing better than watching films on the projector. It makes them all the more epic and immersive. Some of the films I watched were instant classics, others were a bit of a dud. Here is a summary of my summer viewings so far.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

What I’ve Been Watching #4

This is the first official post since my return from Canada and I am already itching to fly back out. During my time there I didn’t actually watch a lot of productions. The first three films I mention in this post were my in-flight entertainment. However, sometimes you need a Netflix and chill night just to unwind after the day’s activities so I did some casual viewing on the side. The only stress inducing viewing was the Stanley Cup Playoffs. I was on the edge of my seat for the entire series. Not gonna lie, my shouty voice came out a few times because I was so frustrated with some of the plays I’d seen. Anyway, here’s a list of what I’ve been watching.

What I’ve Been Watching #3

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts, but I thought it was time to take a break from the books and talk about all the TV Shows and films I’ve been watching. As always, I go through weird phases with my viewings, and my mood also heavily influences what I watch. I think my favourite film in this post is made very clear, but here are my current TV and film highlights.

What I’ve Been Watching #2

Book slumps suck, but once again film and television have come to fill the void. Since my first ‘What I’ve Been Watching‘ post I’ve watched quite a few new shows and some films that I’d been meaning to watch for ages.  I’ll confess, I’m not the best at binge watching programmes because I always end up needing to take a break in between and forget all about them. Here’s a summary of what I’ve been watching since the New Year.

What I’ve Been Watching

It is no secret that I’ve been in a bit of reading slump for this last month or so. It sucks, but at the end of the day, the most effective method of getting over this slump is to power through it. However, there is one benefit to this slump because as I’m looking for other ways to occupy my time I end up binge watching. I have said this so many times, but my mood has a huge influence on what I read and watch. Here is a list of the shows/films I’ve been watching.

Top Ten Tuesday: Halloween Special

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish where we get a new topic for a top 10 list.

Happy Halloween everyone. Now, typically I don’t buy into the Halloween festivities, mainly because I don’t actually have anywhere to go. However, in my teen years, I went through a phase of watching all the horror films I could find. Don’t ask me why cause they scared the life out of me. Nowadays, I much prefer the coziness the Great British Bake-Off and this weird horror film phase I went through has literally vanished, but for those of you looking to have a fright night, these are my recommended horror flicks.
