Sunday Rundown

What have you been reading this week?

Next week I’m heading to the Lakes for my friend’s hen weekend. So, I’ve had to spend this weekend getting ready for it. Mostly taking extra photos and buying everything that I’ll need. June is definitely going to be a month full of spending and probably less time reading. Thankfully, I’m going away in July so I can make up some ground.

I’d already had some of this film spoiled thanks to various social media and media outlets. I knew that the longer I left it, the worse it would get. So, Checked decided to give this a go. I loved the first Dr Strange but could this be as good? Check out my review to see if the sequel lived up.

  • BOOK REVIEW – Can You Ever Forgive Me? by Lee Israel

This was our book club’s pick for May and one that I was really looking forward to. The film was pretty good, so I wanted to see how accurate it was. See my post to see if Hollywood did a good job of adapting this true-crime memoir.

  • BOOKISH POST The Best Things by Mel Giedroyc

I’ve had this book for a while. It was an instant buy because I’m a big fan of Mel Giedroyc and figured it would be a lot of fun. But I always worry when celebrities get book deals. How will their whole schtick translate on the page? Check out my review to see if this was worth it.

  • The Beastie Boys Book by Michael Diamond and Adam Horovitz

Another book that I’ve had for a while that I’m finally picking up. I’m not exactly the biggest Beastie Boys fan but I was interested in this. Especially the audiobook with its amazing line-up.

  • The Crooked Little Pieces by Sophia Lambton

I was given a free copy of this and I’m super excited to read it. It’s about twin girls in 1920s London. It has the potential to be a lot of fun.

I’m still being good… for the time being.

Recently Watched

  • TV:
    • The Goldbergs – Season 8 isn’t exactly as good as the rest but it’s still a nice enough show.
    • Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? – I decided to give this adaptation directed by Hugh Laurie a chance. It’s not one of Christie’s books that I’m super familiar with but it’s always worth watching some Agatha. I thought it was really well-made and a lot of fun. Must track down a copy of the novel.
