January Playlist

Have wanted to write a post like this for SO long but I always have other posts to publish before and usually it gets deleted. This will be a series of posts, I'll try and publish once a month and it will be a collection of my favourite books, tv shows, films and music of each month. For January I have been loving three TV shows in particular, two albums and one, slightly unusual book.

- Wavves: I came across the band Wavves via Helen Anderson aka. melon lady baby, aka. Anderz on Youtube as her band Box Of Light toured with Wavves. I instantly became addicted to the new album V. If you follow me on Instagram then you may have seen the new addition to my life, an adorable rose gold vinyl record player *it's exclusive to Urban Outfitters* so I've been listening to music much more and this record has been pretty much on repeat - it's so addictive and uplifting.

- Shetland: Myself and my parents have been watching the new TV show Shetland which I think is the third season *I definitely need to watch the first two seasons now* but it is on BBC currently. It's a crime drama, my favourite kind of TV show and you can watch it now on BBC iPlayer. I am definitely going to buy the dvds of the first and second season! Also Shetland is just stunning - I need to visit one day.

- Fortitude: Another TV show I've been addicted to, I have watched up to the eighth episode and I'm putting off watching the rest as I don't want it to end. It's a bit of an unusual and dark TV show but I love it and apparently there is a season 2 coming out this year.

- 2 Broke Girls: My last TV show favourite is a long term fave of mine - 2 Broke Girls. It is so funny, relatable, interesting and I love Kat Dennings. I have the first season on dvd and I've watched the second. I really need to watch the other three seasons as I know I will love them!

- My Dinosaur Life - Motion City Soundtrack: This is my last music favourite and sadly I cannot find the vinyl version so I've downloaded the album onto my iPhone. I always listen to music in the car, I can't not listen to music in the car and this album has been on repeat for at least a week non stop *I think I might have a problem*.

- Not That Kind Of Girl - Lena Dunham: One of my 2016 goals was to read more books and I'm aiming for 30 this year but I've only finished one fully and I'm half way through two others, oops. I hadn't watched or read anything about her before but I knew she was in a TV show called Girls. The book is a collection of stories about her life, her relationships, sex, working in the TV industry, her parents and sister and her friends. It was slightly uncomfortable reading it at times but on the whole it was such an enjoyable book and I read it in about four days! Just buy it and if you have read it and have any recommendations of similar books then please let me know.

Have you watched any of the TV shows I've mentioned? What books have you been loving lately? 


  1. Kat Dennings is hilarious in 2 Broke Girls. It is such a funny show, although I could do without Sophie.

  4. My grandparents of all people keep telling me to watch Fortitude! But I haven't found the time yet. I've been watching Ripper Street (very good!) in between discovering the joy of audiobooks!

  5. 2 broke girls is amazing!!


  6. I love 2 broke girls, Fortitude sounds like it's right up my street too. I've been absolutely obsessed with Elementary and Gotham this past month. For books, I got a ton for christmas I've been working through, but anything by Jodi Picoult or Cecelia Ahern are winners for me. :)

    1. I love Elementary too - I need to watch the new season x

  7. I miss watching 2 Broke Girls, I never get to watch it anymore but it's such a good show. The Lena Dunham book sound like a great option too, will look into it x

  8. I read Not That Kind of Girl and I loved the book. Lena was honest and some of her stories were so funny.


  9. I haven't actually listened to any of these apart from Motion City Soundtrack! These will be definitely going on my to-listen playlist :)
