What I’m Watching, Reading & Listening to Right Now

The Bold Type

Us humans need to be entertained. Otherwise, with all the stress we experience in our daily life, we’d lose our minds!

This year, I’ve subscribed to Amazon Prime, so now I have instant access to thousands of movies, TV episodes, music and e-books. If you’re also interested, try the Amazon Prime 30-Day Free Trial to discover all these and other benefits.

In this post I’m going to show you what I’m watching, listening and reading in January 2019.

Watching

The Bold Type

You can succeed or fail miserably, but if you don’t take risks you’ll never fulfill your dreams. This is what I’ve learned with The Bold Type, a TV series on Prime Video that I’m super hooked on — so much that I stay up awfully late every night!

Jane, Kat and Sutton are three 20-something BFFs who work at the women’s magazine Scarlet — which is somehow based on Cosmopolitan. Jane is a writer who wants to achieve her full potential, Kat is a very daring social media director who unexpectedly falls in love with another girl, and Sutton is an assistant whose dream is to work in fashion.

If, like me, you enjoyed The Devil Wears Prada, you’ll definitely love The Bold Type!

Bohemian Rhapsody

OH… MY… GOD.

I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to see this movie being such a big fan of Queen! My partner and I watched Bohemian Rhapsody last night and ended up crying our eyes out and hugging each other.

I think I was just waiting for the right moment to watch this Freddie Mercury biopic because I knew it was gonna be intense. And heck, it was!

Highly recommended movie for Rock ‘n’ Roll junkies.

Reading

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

This year, I’ve started a challenge that I’ve called The Brontë Sisters Reading Challenge. It consists of reading a book by — or about — the Brontë sisters every month of the year. So in January, I’m re-reading Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë.

This 19th-century classic English novel tells the story of little Jane Eyre, an orphan girl who endures physical and emotional abuse from her evil aunt and cousins and who is then sent to the orphanage Lowood School, where she can barely survive food shortage and girls are dying of thyfus.

Once Jane has grown up, her story continues in Thornfield Hall, where she works as a governess and falls in love with her mysterious boss, Mr Rochester.

Jane Eyre has several film adaptations, and I personally love the one with Michael Fassbender as Mr Rochester.

If you’re also a devotee of Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë, why not taking the challenge?
