Finally being settled in my own home after so many months of in-between has led to the return of my reading mojo. At least, that’s what I’m putting it down to.
What I’ve been reading:
Joke of the week:
What I’ve been watching:
This was really interesting. Each episode features a new story with new characters with a different twist on the ‘soulmates’ concept. There’s some thought provoking themes within each episode. I’ve never been a big believer in the notion of soulmates so I quite enjoyed seeing this picked apart in such a clever way.
This was a lot of fun but also not without its thought provoking themes, particularly around cultural approbation, colonialism, and how history is told. It’s funny and intelligent, by the creators of Parks and Recreation (a favourite of mine) and very addictive. The main character, Nathan Rutherford, is ridiculous and incredibly selfish, but his best friend Regan is sensational, so it all balances out – as it’s meant to.
Jane Harper’s The Dry, starring Eric Bana. I actually liked this more than the book. Excellent film, stunning cinematography, and really terrific performances. I particularly liked how they worked in the flashback scenes. I’d watch this again.
Until next week… 😊☕📚
