Resolutions Unhaul 2019!

letting it go

I love making lists. Resolutions. Bucket lists. 10, 20, 30 things to do before (insert age.) Going through my endless old journals the other day I found a frightening amount of these. And I thought- it’s time to let some of these go. They just aren’t going to happen and maybe I can focus more on the things that will.

So below the long-term resolutions I love that I’m letting go of…

Journey through the Mirror: A Winter’s Promise

A Winter’s Promise

By: Christelle Dabos

Grade: A

A Winter’s Promise is the translated version of a hugely popular French series that Europa is doing. I really had no idea what to expect from this book or whether or not I’d like the novel- especially since I had just read a translated book before it that I wasn’t that big on.

Luckily I loved A Winter’s Promise and can’t wait for them to put out the next two books in the series.

Derry Girls is an Instant Favorite

Derry Girls

Created and Written by: Lisa McGee

So I went into Derry Girls on Netflix knowing nothing about it save Netflix thought I’d like it based on previous choices and Twitter thought subtitles might be necessary. I wound up flying through all six episodes in no time! Its one of the funniest most entertaining shows I’ve seen in a while.

And you can totally count me in the obnoxious, “Don’t make me wait all year for season two Netflix!” club.

An Anonymous Girl

By: Greer Hendricks & Sarah Pekkanen

It probably is and you should run away.

When Jessica lies her way into a morality study the strapped for cash girl feels like she hit the jackpot when the Doctor chooses her for “further studies.” Unfortunately for Jess Doctor Lydia has her own goals for this one and may severely be in need of a therapist herself.

Soon Jess finds herself trapped in a maze not only with no way out but no clear definition of the rules.

I wanted to see The Favourite, ever since viewing the trailer, mainly for the three female leads and boy they did not disappoint! Unfortunately I didn’t love the movie as much as the performances but its definitely an interesting film.

At Least I Have Books: 2018 Wrap-Up

harley baking fail

December seemed to fly by. Along with all things Jason Momoa I’ve developed an unhealthy obsession with baking competitions. I’ve watched the adults and now I’m onto the kids baking shows. They’re so cute 🙂

Except there’s this 10 year old on one season that has a baking business. Like kid go outside and play or something stop making me look bad. At least I have my books!

I’ve never really been big on New Years. I’m going to see Aquaman again (yeah!) probably watch a movie tonight or keep watching Derry Girls (that show is hysterical!) I’ll save the Taylor Swift Reputation Tour show for tomorrow cause you got to start the New Year right 🙂

Then it’s time for 2019!

I hope everyone has a wonderful fun night & best wishes for the year ahead!

Wyrd Sisters

By: Terry Pratchett

Grade: A+

“When you break the rules, break ’em good and hard.”

Welcome back Granny Weatherwax! The sixth book in the Discworld series brings in three great female characters, several Shakespeare illusions, playing with time and is all about the power of words and stories to shape and change our realities. All things that I love so I can safely say Wyrd Sisters is my favorite.

Most Disappointing Films of 2018

most disappointing reads

I wasn’t sure if I should call this My Worst Films of 2018 because I actually enjoyed some of them in a disaster can’t look away kind of way. Some might even be guilty pleasures. Disappointing Films? To be honest I kind of expected some of them to be bad.

The Bummer Films? The not Great films of 2018?

The top two aren’t just not great films but truly bad so maybe I should just do the list… (Some spoilers below!)
