Keep Me Entertained Q&A + 2019 Books On My Wish List!

Posted January 7, 2019 by shooting in Discussion / 51 Comments

It’s time for the first TBB Asks of 2019, courtesy of The Blended Blog. Today, the theme is Keep Me Entertained, which has me super excited!
  1. Book(s) you have read multiple times? The Harry Potter series, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
  2. Favorite book/author of all time? The books would be the same as above, and author wise, J.K. Rowling because I love all her books – not just Harry Potter. 
  3. Favorite TV show to binge? I’m not a great binge watcher, but I can happily re-watch episodes of Psych. 
  4. Favorite new-ish TV show? A Million Little Things. It’s so good! Plus, it stars James Roday, who was in Psych. 
  5. Favorite movie of all time? One of them would be Life as a House. 
  6. Movie you are looking forward to watching? I’m excited to see the live-action Aladdin. It’s one of my favorite cartoons. 
  7. First concert you attended? Nsync – they were my second concert too! 
  8. Ultimate concert (even if it can’t happen)? Ooh this is a tough one! Seeing all the original Beatles would be amazing, for one that can’t happen. I’d love to see Panic! at the Disco play with Ryan Ross again, so who knows, maybe one day! 
  9. Favorite music artist/band? I love so many musicians/bands so it’s really tough to pick a favorite. 
  10. How do you listen? (streaming? CDs? Vinyl?) I have an iPod and I still buy and listen to CDs as well. I got a record player last year and I have some albums on Vinyl now, so I need to get that all hooked up! 
Tell me- how do you keep yourself entertained? Do we have any answers in common? 

While I have your attention (and since this post is full of book love), I wanted to let you know that I’m hosting a giveaway on Twitter for a Book of your Choice (not to exceed $15). If The Book Depository ships to you, you can enter. The giveaway ends on January 31. All you have to do is follow me on Twitter and RT my pinned post (there’s an extra entry option in the comments of that tweet so just scroll down a tad). You can find the book giveaway on Twitter now!

    You always keep me up to date with what is coming out for us to read and watch. I am heading to the library this morning to get more new books.

  2. I have never read any of the Harry Potter books and my friends get on me about it. One day, I will read them. haha I say that all the time.

  3. Jen

    I have been wanting to watch a Million Little Things! Thanks for the positive feedback on that show. Happy January to you, here we go!!! 🙂

  4. I enjoyed a Million Little Things but found it was triggering my anxiety during this phase of my life so I stopped watching, at least for now. I’m excited for Rachel Hollis’s new book ‘Girl, Stop Apologizing!’

  5. I still buy and listen to CDs too! I actually have a collection of them.
    I love The Perks Of Being a Wallflower. So good!
    We actually did a marathon watching of Harry Potter over the holidays.
    My first concert ever was STone Temple Pilots. I snuck out of the house for that one. I don’t know what I was thinking LOL

  6. That’s a fun little survey 🙂 I might have to jump in on that. My first concert was Fallout Boy! lol. And I’ve seen them four times total now!

  7. I love me some Psych too and I’ve been loving A Million Little Things so far! Gary is so different from Shawn, but it just shows what an amazing actor James Roday is! I love that your first concert was NSync, that is so cool!

  8. NSync was my first one too, and I love A Million Little Things! Panic! At the Disco was one of my favorite shows- I hope you get to see them. I’ve never read The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but it’s on my TBR, along with The Boy Who Steals Houses. I’m going to have to check out the other new releases you mentioned. Hope you’re having a great Monday!

  9. I watched a few of the Harry Potter movies, but can you believe I’ve never read the books? NSync! Too fun.

    The Raven’s Tale (from you TTT) looks interesting. I’ll be on the look out for your thoughts.

  10. I totally forgot about Psych – that was a great show! My son’s favorite band is The Beatles and he plays them nonstop. He’s seen Paul McCartney but would have loved to see the whole band. Thanks so much for linking up with us today!

  11. Harry Potter and Psych are two of my very favorite things! I like your taste!! And I really want to read The Boy Who Steals Houses as well,

  12. I still love CD’s too haha, it’s kinda like books. I love e- books but sometimes I want the physical book too! I guess CD’s are like that for me. 🙂

  13. omg I’m so honoured to see TBWSH on your list!! THANK YOU *happy flails* I also am definitely excited for The Music of What Happens Next and Bloom!! 2019 is going to be simply amazing for new books 😍

  14. Kim

    A million little things! I got sidetracked by a book I just started, The hate U give. But Im going to have to catch up on the rest of that show because I LOVE IT!. If I could see one person in concert, I would have to say Eddie Vedder. If Jack Johnson happened to show up Id be totally ok with that too 🙂 . Im going to have to take a look at those books and add a few to my list! Thanks for sharing!!

  15. Harry Potter are definitely books you can re-read a lot of times 🙂
    I can’t wait to read You Asked For Perfect either, it sounds amazing and I love Laura Silverman’s work so much. I’m also excited about The Boy Who Steals Houses and Bloom 😀
    Happy reading! <3

  16. Yes to the Beatles, I wish that could happen! Life as a House was such a great movie, and I’m looking forward to seeing Aladdin too. That was one of my favorites!!

  17. None of the books you’re awaiting are on my list, but The Boy Who Steals Houses is one I have heard about and thought it sounded great. Hope you get to read all these. Thanks for visiting The Book Connection this week.

    I still use an ipod too! I just love it so much and it’s in my vehicle and plays through the speakers. When my littles want songs like from the movie Moana then I’ll play it through my phone but I much prefer my ipod in my vehicle. My husband told me I’m probably the last person who loves her ipod that much but yay for finding another!
    And I love those questions! A favorite is sooo hard but I saw Guns N Roses in concert a few years ago and actually cried. Twice. They played for 3 hours straight and it was an amazing show. ♥
