3 Podcasts Everyone Should Be Listening To

I am a huge audiobook and podcast fan- I love listening to them while I do pretty much anything. Laundry, dishes, running, commuting, travelling, pretty much anything is the perfect background for listening to a podcast. I tend to listen to all available episodes when I find a new podcast, and then once I’m caught up, I have my weekly episode to enjoy. Because finding a good podcast is actually pretty difficult, I spend a lot of time looking up recommendations and “if you like THIS, you will like THAT,”- these are my current recommendations that I think most people would enjoy!

Murder is Everywhere- Podcasts and TV!

To continue with the theme of true crime and murder from my post yesterday, I am sharing three podcasts and two television shows featuring murder. Although it may not be for the faint of heart, I don’t believe that there are any particularly gruesome or off-putting details in these. These posts may not indicate it, but I’m not one for grisly information; I’ve been known to pass out from medical shows on television, let alone an in-depth discussion of a brutal murder. If you share the same apprehensions, you should be okay!

I know that Halloween is really the time for supernatural and ghost type things, but that has never appealed to me. Yes, they can be frightening and scary but can also be entirely imaginary. I think I find true crime interesting because there is a resolution (in most that I read/watch), and that there are humans who do work to honour those who are killed. Anyways, I won’t bore you with philosophy and feelings, onto the recommendations!  Continue reading

So I have been on a bit of a reading kick

I must say, I am currently at a point where I rarely watch TV aside from throwing Netflix on while I cook/bake. Most of my free time is spent reading, I’ve been on a few different kicks. Chick lit, cozies, and history. In no particular order, these are my recent reads:

I didn’t even know urban fantasy was a thing

One of my co-workers recommended Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovich, as I had asked for fantasy recommendations. I had started out by saying that while I read GoT and thought it was an okay series, I didn’t want to read any more “medieval” fantasies. I snagged the audiobooks of the five books in the series, and then it happened:  Continue reading

An Early Wake was mostly worth the wait

I’ve just finished An Early Wake, Sheila Connolly’s latest book in the County Cork series. I give it 4/5 stars. I’m going to start with the things I didn’t like, so I can move on to the things that I loved:  Continue reading

I usually prefer reading to watching TV. Or people. AKA. My reading habits.

I am what they call a voracious reader. I cannot put books down. Sure, I have the occasional Netflix binge, but I weekly (sometimes more often) book binge. I am currently in a Romanov spurt, and I can’t get enough information about them. I am in the middle of Helen Rappaport’s biography of the children, just fascinating.
