  2. I am starting to hear more and more about Stranger Things. I guess I need to check it out. And Click Your Heart looks fun! I used to live in Japan (I know this series looks Korean), and I love these type of shows! Have a wonderful week.

  3. Well this week I got the new Harry Potter and I loved it! I read it today while I watched the Olympics. I'm probably going to do the Olympic tag when I find some time to do it!

  4. I just found out this year that Jane Austen wrote poetry as well as prose and now this is neat to see it paired with one of her novels in audio form. Nice mix of other books in your haul and shows you're watching.

  5. I just finished Stranger Things. I have to admit, I wasn't as impressed with it as everyone on Twitter, but it was fun. I think I didn't enjoy the show as much simply because I wasn't an '80s kid. :)

    Thanks for visiting Shell's Stories!
