So how has your week been? What have you been reading?
I’ve just got back from seeing my friend where we went to see Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I’ll definitely reviewing it after Christmas but, it’s safe to say, it’s my new favourite Spider-Man film ever. Not that it was exactly a difficult choice considering the third Toby Maguire film and the slightly dodgy Andrew Garfield ones. It’s set me off in a really good mood, which is useful because I’m working tomorrow and I imagine it’s going to be a shit day. Part of me loves working Christmas Eve because you can’t help but feel festive. Everyone who is working is in a pretty good mood and I get to sing Christmas songs without pissing them off… too much anyway. But, on the other hand, it’s always super busy and disorganised. I’ve already planned my evening to involve bed, Elf, and loads of chocolate. So, that’ll get me through.

It’s been a rough week here so I’ve not been doing well with my reading. So, when it came to this week’s bookish post I had to find a book tag to do. As it’s Christmas, this seemed most appropriate. That’s really all I have to say about this post. So, all that’s left for you to do is read it here.

Bad reading week. I’m getting there slowly.

- Netflix Binges – Drag Race,
Who is Murdocal? A casual critic who is a little bit too obsessed with pop culture. A young woman who swears and rants much more than she knows she should whilst trying to make her way in an adult world she isn't prepared for. A not as recent as she'd like literature graduate who, between job applications and subsequent rejections, has turned to the internet to fight the boredom and review the shit out of everything.
