Films & Books 2018

A list of films and books consumed throughout 2018 – the first four movies below were not my choices hence unpalatable, while the last three were enjoyable. Of the 46 books I read this year, five were for work and two for reviews. I particularly enjoyed being immersed in Lestat’s world again after not reading the Vampire Chronicles for close to a decade. Also read my first Shakespeare since leaving high school and re-discovered the genius that is Roald Dahl. Onwards for 2019!
