What I’ve Been Reading, Watching, & Listening to Lately!

What I’ve Been Reading, Watching, & Listening to Lately!

Hey babes! I was inspired by Jessica from Jessica Jade Beauty’s what I’ve been reading posts & Lily from Pint Sized Beauty’s what I’ve been reading, watching, & listening/doing posts to start doing a roundup post of what I’ve been reading, watching, and listening to every month!


I read 16 books in January which was twice as many than I expected to read! It wasn’t a great month personally (read my last post here) so I kind of got lost in books! Lol. I’m going to keep my reviews short but I’ll link my full reviews from Goodreads and my blog! I’ve gotten a lot pickier with my star ratings so you might not see too many 5 star reviews from me. Lol.

Books I Bought

This was another great Vi Keeland book! I loved that it was a dual POV book and had flashbacks to the past!

Books from my Kindle Unlimited Subscription

I’ve had my Kindle Unlimited subscription for over a year and pay $9.99 a month for it. It’s definitely worth it if you read a lot of KU books! I always feel like it’s a toss-up whether I’ll end up liking a KU book though.

Amazon | Goodreads | My Full Review

Ebook Price: $6.99

I went into reading this not sure how I’d feel about a dominant woman but I was pleasantly surprised by it!


I love my doctor shows! I didn’t realize Grey’s Anatomy and The Good Doctor was back on until the middle of the month so I’ve been binge-watching the episodes I missed on HULU. I was kind of obsessed with Matt Czuchry when he played Logan on Gilmore Girls. When I saw he was in a new show, The Resident, I had to watch it! It’s really good!! This is Us came back on too and the last few episodes were so emotional! Omg, this show makes me cry! Lol. The fourth season of Grace & Frankie came out on Netflix and I binged watched it in a day or two. Haha! That show is hilarious!!


I listen to Spotify all day at work and I’ve been starting my day out with Dustin Lynch. My sister might have gotten me addicted. Lol. I love his song Small Town Boy and any of his slow songs! Chris Young is my favorite singer! I got to see him get inducted into the Opry in October and it was amazing! I’ve really been liking his songs Blacked Out, Radio and the Rain, Where I Go When I Drink, and Holiday. I listen to country 90% of the time but I’ve really been into 3 Doors Down and Creedence Clearwater Revival lately! You can see my current mood playlist below! I update it every few weeks.

Add me as a friend on Goodreads if you want to chat about books! What have you been reading, watching, & listening to lately?

– xoxo, Am ♥

      That’s why I love ebooks! I don’t like paying more than $5 for a book! Lol

  10. February 14, 2018 / 4:36 pm

    I have heard so much about This Is Us from all my friends and now my wife is getting on my case that we should watch it. I think after reading this, we may just have to start binging that show!

    • February 15, 2018 / 12:43 am

      Yes you should! It’s such a great show!

  11. February 14, 2018 / 6:38 pm

      I go back and forth. I’m either reading a ton of books or get so busy and don’t read for a week. Lol. You so should!! I love reading these type of posts! ♥

  15. February 15, 2018 / 2:01 pm

    Sorry you haven’t had a great month, but girl you have used your time wisely! Lol. I need to make more time to read as well.

    That sure looks like a great book collection. Though I am more of a crime/mystery/suspense novels, I do pick up a romantic novel once in a while. Thanks for letting me know about these new finds.

    • February 24, 2018 / 1:07 am

      While I prefer romance, I do enjoy those types of books from time to time too! Thanks for stopping by! ♥

  17. February 17, 2018 / 11:15 am

    romance novels are definitely my guilty pleasure! you’re going to have to teach me how you were able to list out the books like that!

    • February 24, 2018 / 1:05 am

      They are mine too! I copied the links of my reviews from Goodreads and then just edited them. It’s kind of hard to explain. Lol. If you email me I can send you screenshots of how I did it! It was just time-consuming lol.

  18. February 19, 2018 / 10:19 am

    This is a great list. I love reading and listening to music. I need to get back into reading more.

    • February 24, 2018 / 1:01 am

      Thank you! They are my favorite ways to relax! ♥
