What’s on my wishlist - 27.07.14



In a similar way to how some of my favourite fashion and beauty bloggers make wishlists of clothes and products they are loving, I wanted to give it a go with the books, films, plays and albums that have gotten me excited.

I was hoping I would think up of an amazingly witty title for these recurring posts, but sadly that never happened so I’m just going to have to put up with this for now, as I really want to crack on with all of these finds!


Book of the week…

The Casual Vacancy has been waiting on my bookshelf for months now, and being a huge J.K. Rowling fan I’m very excited that it’s next up on my reading list. I’ve heard that the book’s written in her infamously infectious style so I can’t wait to get caught up in her intelligent characterisations. I’ll let you know how it goes!


Essential viewing…

The Fault in Our Stars was the last book I read so I definitely need to see the film whilst it’s still at the cinema. Books rarely make me cry, but as this one was compelling enough to do so I’m dreading the state I’ll be in when I leave the cinema. I’m trying not to get my expectations up too high though because I’m usually a little disappointed with literary adaptations.


TV catch-up…

I’m onto the third season of Suits now and am just as hooked as ever. I always find it amazing how I get so into this series, as most of the time the cases and lawyer jargon are too complex to follow and understand entirely, but I guess it’s down to the unpredictable plot twists, the fascinating relationship between Harvey and Mike and the hilarity of characters such as Louis and Donna. If you haven’t seen it already it’s definitely one to catch-up on at some point.


Album pick…

I’ve been listening to Ed Sheeran’s Multiply on Spotify since its release and I am more than ready to commit to buying it now! I think the man is a musical genius and seeing him at Glastonbury only doubled my obsession. Album review to follow…


Musical must-see…

The Commitments was one of the acts that performed at West End Live and I’d love to see the musical in the full. Everyone loves an Irish accent, and the well-known 60s tunes are an added bonus.


Theatre find…

As I’m planning on writing my final year dissertation on the plays of Tennessee Williams, when I found out that A Streetcar Named Desire was being put on at the Young Vic this summer I spent six hours on the website trying to book tickets – dedication eh? Well that time has come around rather quickly as I’m going this week! Can’t wait to write up that review.


Have you seen/ heard/ read any of the above? I’d love to hear what’s on your wishlist for films, TV, books, music and theatre :)
