How has your week been? What have you been reading?
Not to be too melodramatic, today I’m dying. Okay, so I’m basically just recovering from a touch of the flu so have been in bed all weekend. I’ve been shaky, cold, coughing since Thursday. So, I was kind of delighted to be told that work wasn’t going to open today. I know it’s bad but it did mean I could spend the day in bed. I’m still coughing like I’ve got TB but, as you’ve got to find the positives somewhere, I’m hoping it’s making me sound sexier. In other news, on Friday I had the sheer joy of seeing Boyzone during their goodbye tour. We got my older sister tickets for her birthday but, as we were all fans back in the day, my twin and I were loving it just as much as she did. Singing 90s pop songs at the top of my voice wasn’t exactly the best thing to do with my cough but I don’t care. It was an amazing night.

- TUESDAY’S REVIEWS – Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)
Another week and another Best Picture nominee for Motherbooker. This week is the surprise entry of Bohemian Rhapsody. It’s the film that has really divided fans and critics so I wasn’t sure what to think. I’m a pretty big Queen fan and friends had told me it was worth seeing. However, critics can’t just have been overly harsh, right? The negative response surely wasn’t just a major conspiracy to create a flop? So, I went in expecting something terrible because, that way, I could only be shocked. But was I pleasantly surprise? Find out by my review here.
- BOOK REVIEW – The Breadwinner: Graphic Novel by Deborah Ellis
After already putting one book to the side last month in order to have something to review, I found myself doing it again on Wednesday. In order to post something, I desperately searched for a quick book to read once I got home from work. This graphic novel stuck out to me as an exciting story of a young girl in a difficult situation. It sounded like everything that I love to read and everything I would have loved to read as a child. You can find my review here.
- THROWBACK THURSDAY – The Artist (2011)
Number 5 in my journey to revisit the early days of my blog. This was the one I love the most so it’s a bit weird that I never went back to rewatch it. Maybe it’s just cause I didn’t want to ruin it? We’ll go with that. But, in keeping with my new series, it was time to finally watch it again. Was it going to be as good the second time around? To find out, click here.
- Ill Will by Michael Stewart and Spy in the House of Love by Anais Nin
I’ll be honest with you, as I’ve been ill the last few days I haven’t read anything since I finished my last book. It’s going to be a bit of struggle to finish either of these because I’ve got a busy week but I’m determined not to buy anything new this week. So, I’ll have to push on with these in the next few days.
- The Breadwinner: Graphic Novel by Deborah Ellis
I so wish I could have made it til the end of the month without buying anything but I was desperate to write a review. This wasn’t the most expensive of books so I’m kind of okay with it. I’ll just try a bit harder in February.
