It’s nearly the end of the year, and I haven’t finished a single book. It’s safe to say that I’m not going to complete the 2016 Book Riot Read Harder Challenge. The yearly previously, I had read roughly 25 books. Although I did not complete the challenge, it was still an accomplishment because, well, before that point, I didn’t even read 25 books total outside of an environment of mandatory reading. Yeah… and I call myself a writer and book lover. Lately, I’ve just been sitting on a tall tower of books and crying. It’s a familiar image to all of you, I know.
On top of the tall leaning tower of unread books, I also have an ever-growing queue of TV shows that I’ve been wanting to watch for years. Yes, I said it. years. You may think to yourself, “But, Kenny, all you have to do is sit on your butt and watch them.” I am, unfortunately, not someone who can just sit on a chair for an hour watching a TV show without distraction or interruption.
Not having a TV makes TV watching difficult because I am not able to watch new TV episodes as they come out. That’s OK though because I have like 500 TV shows I want to watch, and I can’t figure out how it’s possible for me to watch everything before I die.
I have decided to go through Netflix and Amazon Prime and make a list of all of the TV Shows that I either want to start, finish or watch again. Grab yourself a tub of popcorn and be prepared to shake your head at me in disappointment.
Shows I need to finish
Person of Interest
Parks and Recreation
Shows I want to Start
Halt and Catch Fire
The Vampire Diaries
Shows I want to re-watch
If anyone has any insights as to what they would or would not recommend, let me know. If I can narrow down the list, maybe I can stop crying over the amount of TV shows I want to watch.
Looking at this, I actually expected worse. The problem is with a lot of the shows I’ve started, I don’t know where I left of. This is especially a problem with Revenge. You do not want to know how many times I’ve started from the beginning. Oh well. I’ll figure it out. At least Emily VanCamp is cute.
