My 2019 Reading Wrap-Up

Over the past couple of years, I have documented every film that I have watched and reviewed them all using Letterboxd. As a way to motivate myself to read more, I thought I would do the same for what books I have been reading, using Goodreads as a way to set myself a reading challenge every year.

After doubling my goal of 10 books last year (since I went on honeymoon and managed to read a book a day!), I thought I would keep my goal to 20 books this year. However, just missed out on this target, but I was ever so close to making it.

Here’s how my 2019 challenge went, with a short review and rating for each of the books that I read:

100 Films To Look Forward To In 2020

I always struggle to make it into the new year prepared, but one of the first things that I like to do is to look at what the upcoming year has to look forward to. So, I’ve spent hours scrolling through websites to find the best of what we know so far, with my 100 Films To Look Forward To In 2020.

2020 is undeniably the year for reboots and remakes as well as many sequels and prequels that we never expected. And with Marvel having ended Phase 3 with Endgame last year, there are some original superhero films to look forward to, as well as many more Netflix and Sky Cinemas originals.

To help you trawl through the masses of films listed below, which starts off with January’s biggest award contenders and some more popular picks, we’ll go through the releases in the following groups. If there’s anything in particular that you’re looking for, you can jump to certain pages by clicking these links:

You Should Be Reading: The Woman In The Window

“If there’s one thing I’ve learned in all my time working with children, if I could whittle those years down to a single revelation, it’s this: They are extraordinarily resilient. They can withstand neglect; they can survive abuse; they can endure, even thrive, where adults would collapse like umbrellas.”

Written by A.J. Finn and published in 2018, The Woman In The Window follows Anna Fox who lives alone in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine, watching old movies, recalling happier times, and spying on her neighbours. When the Russells move into the house across the street, Anna thinks they look like the perfect family: a father, a mother, and their teenage son. But when Anna sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble. What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? Nothing is what it seems.
