5 New TV Shows to Catch Up On

I did a post like this last season, and it's one of my favourite things to do; finding new TV shows to love. Here are 5 shows that I'm currently obsessed with.

1. A Discovery of Witches
I read the book on this a long time ago and didn't like it, in fact I really disliked the main characters but decided to give the series a go because often times, fantasy is better on TV for me. I am only two episodes in, but I'm definitely enjoying the show. It's got the thrill that I didn't get from the book.

2. Happy Together 
I do love a corny romantic comedy. This one's funny and it's produced by Harry Styles. The main character is based very much on him and I love the kind of millennial comedy it's got. It's about a couple who hosts a major celebrity and how their lives change because of it

3. Hilda
Now this is the most adorable thing I have seen in a longest time. Hilda is an animated series about a young adventurer and the many different people and creatures she meets in the woods and in the town. The style of animation is so whimsical and beautiful, with a cozy colour scheme. I love the side characters too, especially the woodman.

4. God Friended Me 
It's got that Person of Interest vibes but is supposed to be more of a family religious show. It's about an atheist podcaster who supposedly gets a friend request from God. So far, the storyline is very interesting and I am loving where its going, figuring out the mystery.

5. Pose
This might be my new favourite. It's about the ball culture in NY in the 1980's and has such great discussions on the LGBTQ+ community and inclusion. There is so much drama, fabulosity and such pizazz in the show. I need more of it. 

I am always on the lookout for new TV shows to watch, so let me know if you find anything interesting. 

Currently: November 2018

It's been a hot minute since my last post. The last two weeks, I was home because I was battling a small sickness and so I had loads of free time on my hands and watched way too many movies, TV shows, and YouTube videos. Not a lot of books read tho, but I am slowly catching up to speed. Here are a few things that's keeping me entertained this month. 

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries S1-S3 | I think it was Mannu on twitter who recommended this to me and she was right to say I would like it because I loved it. It had two things I love, murder mysteries and 1920's and Miss Fisher is now one of my favourite characters of all time. She's so brilliant and ahead of her time. I watched all 3 seasons of it in about a week and wanted more. Luckily, there is a movie in the works. 

Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald | Can you believe I hadn't seen the actual Fantastic Beasts movie till just last week? For some reason I missed it when it first came out and forgot about it. I really loved the first movie, Newt is an absolute darling to watch. This second movie, I made sure to get tickets even when I was sick but it was not as good as the first. Too many storylines going on and not enough of Newt or cool beasts. I don't think I enjoy Grindelwald as much. The magic was still so wonderful and brought back the good old HP jolly. 

Velvet S1 | This is also another surprise. I was watching another Spanish drama called Elite and was checking Netflix for other Spanish dramas and found the spinoff for this called Velvet Collection. It's based in the 1950's in a fashion house, what? Those are two things I obsess over so obviously I had to check it out. It's a bit long so I'm taking it slow and enjoying the drama quite a lot. They could show more fashion tho, haha. 

A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro | When I first heard about this book, I knew I would love it but not that I would love it so much I would stay up all night to read this. It was a classic murder mystery with a twist. The characters are modern day descents from the original Holmes and Watson so there's a lot of back story and interesting character arcs. I really just devoured this book. The mystery was also very clever. 

When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi | Been hearing lots of good things about this book and I needed a non-fic so I picked this and I am enjoying it a lot. Paul is a gracious writer, he writes with a rawness that I hardly ever find in non-fics. I know this is going to be a tearjerker so I'm getting myself ready for the heartbreak. 

Nikle Currant by Jassi Gill ft Neha Kakkar | The Kakkars have been cooking up a storm this year, bop after bop and this one's great too. I have been jamming to this all day long and cannot get enough of it. 

What's keeping you entertained?
