Watching, Reading, Listening #2
Although I follow quite a few currently airing shows and don't tend to talk individual episodes here (still wishing I could figure out a way to share my thoughts on episodes each week without turning my blog into a spoiler zone), I wanted to mention Modern Family's recent episode titled Connection Lost. This particular episode followed a unique format with all of the character's interactions taking place via social media. It may sound like a difficult task to create a successful episode in this way however it was done so well and worked perfectly for the show - I really loved this episode!
During a busy couple of weeks reading has taken a bit of a backseat recently but I have managed to make my way through one book since my April roundup. Falls The Shadow (Stefanie Gaither, 2014) is a YA tale set in a world where children are cloned at birth, the clones raised in a controlled environment, ready to step in if anything happens to their originals. Although I thought the book had a great premise I sadly found that I started to lose interest as I reached the mid-point of the story.
Next up I'm planning to set the library books aside for a while, pick up my Kindle and find time to read a few of my purchases from earlier in the year such as Dangerous Girls (Abigail Haas, 2013), The Ruining (Anna Collomore, 2013) and Killer Instinct (S.E. Green, 2014). If you have any good book recommendations please let me know!
This month's Listening section is probably going to sound a little repetitive after my last WRL post but I'm going to be talking podcasts again as my obsession with Afterbuzz TV's aftershow selection is growing. After the season finale of Pretty Little Liars I decided to branch out and listen to more of Afterbuzz TV's podcasts and have been dipping in and out of quite a few including their aftershows for Hart Of Dixie, Grey's Anatomy, The Following and Once Upon A Time. I also just subscribed to their Castle podcast too so I'm looking forward to listening to that soon!
