Re-discovering my love for reading….

Back In January 2017 I set a goal of reading 40 books throughout 2017.

Unfortunately at the close of the year I had only read 36.

I put a lot of pressure on myself to read a large amount of books to the point that I didn’t enjoy reading nearly as much as I usually do, It felt forced.

I was so intent on finishing a book that I didn’t enjoy the journey the book was taking me on.

So 2018 is going to be about enjoying the journey, and getting back to reading books for the right reason – to relax and escape into another world of my choosing.

I’m going to set realistic monthly goals and make sure that I set at least one hour aside each day to read books that I will enjoy.

We’re 3 weeks into the new year and already I’ve read some great books by Authors that I know and love.

None of the books have felt like a chore, infact I couldn’t put them down.

2018 is going to be my time to re-discover my love of reading

Train Wreck – Film Review!

Train Wreck – Film Review

url

As most of you may know I am a total horror film nerd.

I think I have five chick flicks that I have watched and liked and this genre is not normally for me, in fact I usually avoid it like the plague.

But I do love me some Amy Schumer so I had to go see this film.

This film is Hilarious!

The love interest, Aaron (played by Bill Hader) isn’t your usual ‘hot guy’ love interest, he’s dorky and needy and that just makes him all the more loveable. Schumer’s character is as outrageous as you would expect, Amy certainly didn’t hold back when writing her character.

One of the most unexpected characters was Amy’s Boss Diana played by Tilda Swinton. I didn’t recognizer her at first. This role is so far removed from any other role I have seen her play. She plays a gobby, brash, cockney magazine editor, (think two parts Russell Brand and one part Kathy Beale from Eastenders), I loved her character.

I was also quite shocked at how good an actor LeBron James was, he was obviously playing himself, but his comedic timing was spot on.

This really is a fantastic film and a must see for fans of Schumer & the Chick Flick genre. 5/5!
