Well, I’ve been terrible bad at the blogging in November. But the one book I reviewed was a great book, so I’d highly recommend you give Us against you a try, but only if you’ve read Beartown first. Filmwise I didn’t review a single film, but I did watch some. I continued with my Rockathon […]

I’m going to ignore how terrible a year it was, in so many ways, and just look at the books and film I enjoyed this year. I just about made my target of 105 books read in 2017, the longest of which was Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke. It is a big […]
