The Entertainments

I'm always surprised that people want to know what I'm watching, reading, etc. Then I had a baby, and I've been watching TV/Movies or reading like crazy while nursing all hours of the day. I realized that people weren't so much snooping when asking what I do to entertain myself, but that they might need recommendations as much as I do with my increased need for Interesting Stuff To Fill The Time When I Used To Write.

So, quick window into my entertainment habits:

Current Anime: Soul Eater

Just Finished Anime: Heroic Age

Current K-drama: Spring Waltz

Just Finished K-drama: Scent Of A Woman

Current Show I'm Sad Is Over: Legend of Korra

Movie I'm So Happy I Actually Got To See In Theater: Brave

Movie I Wish I Could See In Theater: The Avengers (Yes, I have yet to see it. Arg.)

TV Show I Would Almost Buy Cable For: So You Think You Can Dance (WHY the forever delay on Hulu, Fox? WHY???)

What I'm Reading: 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson

What I've Recently Read: Try Not To Breathe by Jennifer Hubbard, The Statistical Probability Of Love At First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith

What I Plan To Read Next: Cinder by Marissa Meyer, or Partials by Dan Wells

What Album I'm Listening To Most: The Sun And The Moon by The Bravery


  1. Loved "13 Little Blue Envelopes" and "The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight." I have yet to see Brave or Avengers. I love the movies, but hate the cost :)

    I hate Fox's online stuff, too. 8 days is way too long for me. If I miss an episode on TV, then it's almost too late to get caught up. Oh well, there are always better books to read anyway...

    1. Fox has even more restrictions on some shows. So frustrating! And I agree—there's a point where it's just too late to catch up. Sigh.

      Movies are hard for me to get to, but the cost is a big thing for me as well. I have to really want to see it to go to a theater. Like The Hobbit. I AM SEEING THAT IN THEATER.

  2. I just finished Cinder yesterday and passed it onto my 12-year-old daughter. Loved it!

    I'm looking forward to seeing Brave.

  3. Love Soul Eater! The hubby & I are into that. I want to see Brave so badly. We saw the previews months ago at some movie and I knew immediately that it was 'my kind o' movie' because of the awesome heroine.

    P.S. The Avengers was awesome! I wasn't sure if I'd like it (though I'm a comic & RDJ fan), but it was much better than expected.

    Thanks for filling us in!

  4. Good point. I often ask people what they watch and read because I love finding that we have something else in common. And then we get to chat about the show/movie/book.

    My daughter read Cinder and loved it. And UH! I want to see Brave. Maybe sometime this week. :)

  5. Man. Korra. All of the feels. ALL OF THE FEELS.

  6. Awesome! Thanks for sharing. I'm not a TV/anime watcher and haven't touched K-dramas in a while, but I feel like I am super out of the loop for never having seen Buffy/Dr. Who/Avatar. Still trying to motivate myself to catch up on those things...

  7. I'll give away what happens in the Avengers: the whole team is wiped out in the first five minutes by Godzilla stomping on them. The end.

    It's been awhile since I've watched Scent of A Woman...

  8. I love Korra! She is such an awesome character and the artwork in that show is so pretty. I'm sad it's over too!
