Hello, Harlow here.

Welcome to Reading, Listening, Viewing! This is where I blog about the various media I happen to, well, be reading, listening (to), and viewing around that time.

Alongside reading and writing, one of my greatest passions is music. I’ve been playing guitar since I was pretty young, and I tend to do most things with music blaring in my ears, including studying, shopping, cooking, and reading. In recent years especially, I’ve become quite the TV show binge-watcher as well.

With this blog, I hope to not only generate discussion around really great books, music, and shows, but also to demonstrate the uniqueness and power of each of these mediums in the hopes that anyone reading might seek out the next piece of art that moves them profoundly, though maybe not in the medium they thought they would. I personally love being caught off-guard by the brilliance of something I never expected to like, and I doubt I’m the only one.

“Death Note”

I don’t think I’ve ever watched a show as fast as I watched “Death Note” last week – I don’t have an exact time, but it was in under 48 hours. That alone speaks to its quality, but let’s jump into the specifics of this brilliant anime. […]

“The Queen’s Gambit”

I try to keep “Reading, Listening, Vieweing” limited to media I’ve recently consumed so as to get my most visceral thoughts on each work I cover, but I had to make a small exception for “The Queen’s Gambit” […]

“Tearling” trilogy – Erika Johansen

Okay, I have a lot to say about the “Tearling” trilogy, so let’s just get right into it. In first book of this series, “The Queen of the Tearling”, we meet Kelsea Glynn, who was raised in a secluded cottage by her adoptive parents, […]

“Hello, It’s You” by Bearings

To go from making my last “Listening” post on global pop star Taylor Swift’s “evermore” to now making one on Ottawa-based pop punkers Bearings’s sophomore effort “Hello, It’s You” may seem like a bit of a dramatic jump, […]

“Bridgerton” (season 1)

After finishing a pretty heavy show a few weeks ago, my girlfriend and I were looking for something a bit lighter and funnier to watch: enter “Bridgerton”, a period drama created by television giant Shonda Rhimes, […]

“Altered Carbon”

For this first installment of “Viewing”, I figured I would talk about a TV show I finished just a week ago, because well, what a show it was. I am of course talking about the sci-fi space drama “Altered Carbon”, […]

“Warbreaker” – Brandon Sanderson

Going into this fantasy standalone by such an acclaimed author whose work I had never read before gave me high expectations, but to say that “Warbreaker” met these expectations in stride would be insufficient, since it truly exceeded them. […]

“evermore” by Taylor Swift

Kicking off this re-vamped version of my blog on the first day of the new year feels like a fresh new beginning for me, which is honestly exactly how I would describe “evermore”, the newest project from Taylor Swift. […]
