So this is …

Christmas, and I hope you ha- oh wait, too late for that. So this was 2018, and what have I done?

I read 82 books, seven of those having been published in 2018 (I want to thank CloudLibrary and Ottawa Library for making these accessible so quickly). And I started and finished a series: The Dark Tower. Best of 2018? First title that pops up is Pachinko, but also Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows and Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine. I read pretty diversely again this year, and continue to try to solely pick female authors.

From the  33 movies I reviewed, twelve were from this year (thanks, Pathé Unlimited pass), and seven were to be found on Netflix. I definitely feel like I watched better movies at the beginning of the year, and the majority of the reviewed ones are more ‘independent’ than blockbuster as well. So if those are your thing, scroll a bit.

I only reviewed eight TV shows, even though those usually get the most hits, so there’s a new year’s resolution for ye. Of those reviewed I’d absolutely recommend Happy Valley.

For the blog I hope to keep up my weekly posts, and maybe hit a record number of followers. Threehunderd? I should first check how many I’ve got. Either way, have a wonderful 2019 full of reading and watching!
