Top Ten Tuesday (16)

This week's topic:
Top Ten Blogs/Sites You Read That AREN'T about Books

I've been reading this site for years and years and years now.  It's television reviews and they are just hysterical.  It started as a Dawson's Creek recap site and grew from there.  Now, Bravo owns it.  I currently read The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, Dancing with the Stars and sometimes the Glee reviews (if I'm bored).    If you're a DC fan, you must read the reviews from back in the day, they're awesome.

 The best of pop culture.  This is my favorite magazine and currently the only one I subscribe to, so of course I read their website.

3. tumblr
 My tumblr is just basically a mosh of everything I love.  It is also incredibly embarrassing, so I don't let many people in my real life see it.  tumblr is also where I got my book blogging start, which I then abandoned to come to Blogger.

Who doesn't have a Facebook these days (I mean, besides my mother).  Some days I feel like it's the worst thing that has ever happened to us as a society, some days I think that's twitter.  Right now I basically use it to play Slingo and to see pictures from my friends.

5.  YouTube
Not technically a site that you read, but I use YouTube all the time.  It's currently feeding my preoccupation with One Direction (they're freaking precious, don't judge me), but it's also a great place to look up commercials from your childhood, theme songs of shows you'll never see again, and the best 90s music videos (See also: this and this.)

RS always has great articles and lists.  I'm constantly on it when I'm bored going through something like the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time.

So, technically this site has a whole lot to do with books, but I don't care.  I go here mostly for The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars recaps, and I stay for things like the Highly Scientific Analysis of Ben vs. Noel.

I'm constantly on here looking for things to make for dinner.  I lack cooking intuition so I only cook from recipes.  I have found so many amazing ones on this site - like this mac and cheese or these buttermilk pancakes.

9. Amazon
I spend WAY WAY WAY too much time on Amazon.  Where else can you get Nerf darts, Popped Corners, and The Mighty Ducks trilogy all at your pajamas?  Nowhere.

10. Twitter
I know, I hate what it's doing to our lives, but I'll be damned if I don't want to know what Ben Savage sings in the shower.
