This is a feature where I share some my current favorite things or obsessions including movies, TV, and music. Pretty much things that aren’t books.

TV Shows

The Carrie DiariesThe weird thing about this one is that I’ve never watched Sex and the City. I’m not even sure why I started watching this. All I know is that I’m hopelessly obsessed. I love it. I love the characters, I love the story, I love the music. Actually, I think about 50% of my love for this show is the music. I started making an 80’s playlist on Spotify because of this show.

I haven’t watched any movies in a while, so I’m behind on that. I have plenty on my watch list, though. Maybe soon! Right now, it’s just Carrie.


Recently, I went to a show with Ben and some friends of ours. We were there to see Caveman, but we were pleasantly surprised by the first band, Roadkill Ghost Choir. We ended up buying their CD, and I listened to it nonstop for like two weeks. This is my favorite song on the EP.

I’ve also been listening to Beach House’s Teen Dream this week, after mentioning them to a friend the other day. It’s hard for me to pick a favorite on that album. I love the whole thing, but I’ve been enjoying listening (and singing along in the car) to “Better Times,” in particular.

Any other Carrie Diaries fans out there? Don’t you just love the 80’s music? How about the music? Did you already know these bands or did I just turn you onto something new?

About Laura Ashlee

Hi there! I'm Laura Ashlee. I'm a 28-year-old fangirl of most things nerdy. I love books, comics, music, technology, and a host of other things. I write about a lot of those things on this blog. I also have the best job in the world: high school librarian. If you don't have a job where you get to hang out with teenagers all day, what are you doing with your life? All I know is that your not doing something right. Teenagers are cool... most of the time.

      I know! Those are the best parts. It’s fantastic. I’m caught up now, so I won’t be quite as obsessed. I’m going to keep listening to my awesome 80s music, though.
