At BYT, we like stuff! (We even LOVE stuff!) And we think you might, too, so here we’ll share with you what we’ve been reading, watching, listening to and more. (Sometimes there will be guest stars! Exciting!)
We also wanna know what YOU are loving right now, so let us know in the comments, or share with us on social media! (@brightestyoungthings on IG, @BYT on Twitter)
HERE WE GO:
Book I’m currently reading: I have finished all 7 books of the Frieda Klein mysteries by Nicci French (that’s 2600+ pages of psychological tension) and am excited to do a novel next. Leaning towards Writers and Lovers by Lily King which I’ve heard raves about all year long.
Tune of the week: Janet Kay “Silly Games” (from Steve McQueen’s Lovers Rock)
TV show I recommend: Steve McQueen’s Lovers Rock episode of his Small Axe series on Prime. Don’t let this year pass you without seeing it. It is A GIFT.
Something I’m excited about: Steve McQueen’s Lovers Rock? This is a Steve McQueen’s Lovers Rock appreciation letter, apparently. #MercurySound
Worst gift I’ve ever received: The only person that gives me gifts is my husband (we’ve never been a big Christmas gifting family) and he is pretty good at not failing. I do hate being given jewelry/accessories as a whole because NO ONE gets it right.
Book I’m currently reading: I started Plain Bad Heroines by Emily M. Danforth over the weekend. So far I’m not loving it, but GIVING IT A CHANCE ANYHOW.
Tune of the week: I finally got around to watching Little Fires Everywhere, and I’m p. obsessed with that BELLSAINT cover of “Uninvited”. (Like, it feels sacrilegious to be into an Alanis Morissette cover, but CANNOT BE HELPED.)
TV show I recommend: The Derry Girls episode of GBBO on Netflix. DELIGHTFUL.
Something I’m excited about: I guess I’m still excited for The Prom on Netflix since I fucked up the release date. (It’s THIS Friday.) I’m also interested to see if The Wilds (which premieres on Friday via Amazon) is any good.
Worst gift I’ve ever received: My mom gave me a vacuum cleaner for my birthday one year.
