Top Ten Tuesday: Bingeworthy TV Shows

I missed this Top Ten Tuesday topic recently and since tv is my second love, I still wanted to participate in it. So here is my list of Top Ten Bingeworthy TV Shows.

30 Rock

1. 30 Rock. This was always one of my go-to’s. It’s so funny. I can’t begin to tell you how sad I am that it’s not on Netflix anymore. I only have the first two seasons on dvd and I need to remedy that.

10 Types Of People In A Friend Group As Told By "Parks And Recreation"

2. Parks & Rec. Another go-to. I actually watched this entire series so many times that I had to take a little break from it. Ben & Leslie are one of my all-time OTPs.

Brooklyn Nine Nine! LOVE this show! Can't wait for the new season to begin!!

3. Brooklyn 99. This is probably my favorite show that is currently on tv. I love the cast and the humor. And Jake and Amy! I’m so happy that NBC picked this up after Fox cancelled it.

new girl is seriously my favorite show next to friends and big bang theory!

4. New Girl. I binge this show probably once a year or so. It’s great when you’re in the mood for something quirky.

The Office<<< that awkward moment when Angela is the tallest XD and I love how Phillis has her hand on the doorknob like " get me out of this hell hole."

5. The Office. While this show definitely lasted a few years longer than it should’ve, I still love it. I’ve been watching this one a lot more recently than I had in awhile and it’s not getting old yet. Jim and Pam are my OTP (we’ll just pretend the last season never existed).

Community- possibly one of the most brillant and well written comedies

6. Community. This is one of my favorite shows ever. It pains me to admit the last couple seasons were not very good, though. Still, we got our 6 seasons and I’m still waiting for the movie! #SixSeasonsAndAMovie

Bellarke through out the season finales. I wonder if it was Jason Rothenburg's idea to end the world long before season 5. It almost happened in season 4. #bellarke

7. The 100. I never really cared about this show until recently. While watching the most recent season I decided to binge it from the beginning as there was a lot that I missed. It’s definitely better to watch in binge-format. And I’m all about #Bellarke.

life unexpected: WHY DID THIS SHOW ONLY HAVE 2 SEASONS :'(

8. Life Unexpected. I didn’t watch this show when it was on tv, but I’ve binged it a couple of times now on Netflix. It’s only two seasons so it doesn’t take long and it’s enjoyable.

Gilmore Girls

9. Gilmore Girls. How many times have I watched this series? Far too many to count. This was probably one of my first binge-watching experiences. My college roommates and I used to watch this for hours at a time.

younger tv land - Google Search

10. Younger. This is a great show to binge watch! I didn’t watch it until right before season 4 started and I binged the first 3 seasons right before.

What are some of your favorite binge-worthy tv shows?

Monday’s Minutes + NaNoWriMo Update #4


Monday’s Minutes is where I share what I’m reading and what I’m reading next.


The Jewel (The Lone City, #1)

The Jewel (The Lone City #1) by Amy Ewing. I’m only 2 chapters into this so far, so it’s still a little hard to tell what I think of it. I’ve read a lot of unfavorable reviews of this, so I’m not expecting much, but I still want to give it a try. Mostly because the cover is so pretty!



Suspicion by Alexandra Monir. I was approved for this from NetGalley and it expires early in December, so it will be my first post-NaNo read.


NaNoWriMo Update

I had gotten ahead on my word count so I decided to give myself a day off. One day off turned into three days off and I had pretty much decided to give up. I didn’t go to a write-in because last time I went the people in charge spent the whole time on Google Hangout with someone who couldn’t make it due to weather and I only got two charms and it just didn’t seem worth the hassle. But yesterday I got a second wind and got over 4k words written so I am now just barely caught up to par. I’m going to try and power through and finish this thing up right!

What are you reading? And if you’re writing instead, how is it going?

Monday’s Minutes + NaNoWriMo Update 2


Monday’s Minutes is my weekly post where I share what I’m reading and what I’m reading next. Since I’m participating in NaNoWriMo, I’m also using this for my NaNo update.

The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2)

So, I’m still reading The Mime Order (Bone Season #2) by Samantha Shannon. I’m a little over half way through. It’s a long book and I haven’t had nearly as much time to read as I like. It took me a bit to get into it because it has been so long since I read the last book and it uses a lot of made up terms for things that took some time to get reacquainted with. But I’m into it now and am enjoying it.


NaNoWriMo Update

My word count per day hasn’t been too consistent, but I’m currently on par. I went to another write-in Friday and got a few more charms and tags for my keychain for meeting word sprints.

charm 1 charm 2

Overall, though, my novel still doesn’t have much of a plot and is a big pile of rubbish. I’m kind of thinking of quitting, to be honest. But, we’ll see. I like getting free things, so I may still go to some write-ins for the charms. 🙂

Monday’s Minutes + NaNoWriMo Update


Monday’s Minutes is where I share what I’m reading and what I’m reading next. I figured since this book may take me the whole month to get through, I’m going to use this as a Nano update, as well.


The Mime Order (The Bone Season, #2)

I got The Mime Order (The Bone Season #2) by Samantha Shannon through NetGalley. It’s long, has a unique world, and has tiny, unchangeable print size in my Nook since it’s a PDF, so it will probably take me quite awhile to finish it since I’m doing Nano. My original plan was to wait until December to read it, but I believe it’s scheduled to be archived on December 1st. I can’t figure out if that means it can’t be downloaded anymore or if it means you can’t provide feedback on it anymore, either. DOES ANYBODY KNOW THIS??? I have it for 47 more days before it expires on my Nook, so if I can still provide feedback after the archive date and not screw up my review ratio, that would be great.


If you don’t know, the goal is to write 50,000 words by the end of November. Over the weekend I wrote 4783 words! I went to my region’s kick off event and actually had a good time. I’m not really a very social person at all – especially when it involves being at a place I’ve never been with people I’ve never met. But it went ok! Our area leader made us each a little goody bag!


And my favorite thing was the keychain we got that we can win various charms to put on it throughout the month. For instance, we were each assigned a charm (I got a tree one time and glasses another) and we did a 15 minute word sprint where we had to incorporate that charm into our novel in any way. If we did, then we get the charm. (And we did another word sprint for a sticker).


So overall, it was a successful opening weekend. I hope it continues!

What are you reading? And if you’re writing and not reading, how is NaNo going for you?

Monday’s Minutes


Monday’s Minutes is my weekly post where I share what I’m reading and what I’m reading next.


(Don't You) Forget About Me

(Don’t You) Forget About Me by Kate Karyus Quinn. I’ve only just started but so far it’s intriguing. The premise is interesting, if a little confusing, and I’m hoping things are better explained as the book goes on.


A Tap on the Window  Damsel Distressed  Rebel (Reboot, #2)  Enders (Starters, #2)

A Tap on the Window by Linwood Barclay, Damsel Distressed by Kelsey Macke, Rebel my Amy Tintera, Enders by Lissa Price. These are all books I currently have from the library. I’m not sure which I’m reading next. And since I’m planning on doing NaNoWriMo, I’m not sure I’ll get the chance to read all of them before they expire.
