cozy corner.

i've re-discovered the coziness that is my bedroom and all it took was a silly looking chair from target. i've been spending more time up there recently, reading & watching a movie or tv on dvd. i've just started watching seas one of the tudors and i can't tell if i'm going to like it or not. thoughts? i was re-watching all the season of buffy so i could start reading the comics that pick up where the last season ended, but i haven't made it back into borders for season 5 yet. summer tv is just so lame, other than weeds & true blood of course and there is dexter to look forward to. guilty pleasures like daisy of love (which is almost over and i am in love with london) and degrassi also help me through .  i like to watch something to relax before bed and there is only so much deadliest catch left to watch on my dvr, although i must confess that next time they do a whale wars marathon i'm dvr-ing for sure.. 


so i'm looking to anyone out there who may still actually be reading this blog, what tv series should i be watching on dvd? and what books should i be reading for that matter?  there are only so many sookie stackhouse books and i'm almost out. then it's on to finish sex drugs and cocoa puffs before i move on to collapse and pride and prejudice, which i feel obligated to read before i check out the zombie version, haha. then. my book reading dance card it open after that. suggestions?

zombie version of P&P??? I'm rewatching Buffy too! Since I don't have cable, the only show I am watching this summer is SYTYCD. But as for book... I was given "We Have Always Lived In The Castle" which I havent's started yet, but it's supposed to be amazing. I'm reading Breakfast at Tiffany's, anything by Sarah Dessen is good also.

i'm watching Mad Men right now. it's so good. i accidentally picked up on it in season 2 - watched all of season 2 and then bought season 1. #3 is coming out soon. it's hella-tight.

books? idk. i know pushing daisies comic should be/is out there somewhere. i'm reading 1984 and then it's on to (no lie) war and peace.

alissa just read a series: city of bones, city of ashes, city of glass

those were the books - i have no other information other than that & she really really liked them.

As far as TV shows I always go back to Gilmore Girls and House. The only show I watch now is True Blood.

As far as books, if you like the Sookie Stackhouse books you might also like The Black Dagger Brotherhood series by JR Ward. If not, I love Wicked by Gregory Maguire and his other books.

i just started DVRing nyc prep and it kills me. im obsessed. i also watch la ink, weeds, and the secret life of the american teenager.

um. do i need to type supernatural, or does my clear tumblr obsession with jared padalecki answer for me?
really though. its like a 20 somethings xfiles, with a hot car, hot boys, and old school american rock. season 5 comes out sept 10th, and i can hardly bare it.

I watched the first season of Big Love and kind of loved it. We finally got the second season so I can start in on that. John said he liked Secret Diary of a Call Girl, which I'll get into next.

As for books, Mishna Wolff's book (I'm pretty sure that's her name!) "I'm Down" was hilar. Mostly because I sort of grew up the same way, but I think it'd be funny for anyone!

Stick with The Tudors--it's twisted but compelling, and pretty sexy.

I still read your blog and love it so!

I think you should try Mad Men!
