It’s January 3rd and I’ve seen about 3037228% tweets or Instagram stories about New Year’s Resolutions, particularly from people who apparently want to read more books this year – YAWN. I find NYRs so boring, we all know most of them will be given up on within the month. Anyway, my point is that this isn’t a NYR post. I’ve been planning this for a while and am ~ so ~ excited to be able to read and call it work.
So basically, the idea is to share my favourite eats, reads and watches each month. This is probably the most cultured I’ll ever appear on my blog (& I’m okay with that), you’ve been warned …
What To Read:
Panic Room had me seriously creeped out, think of a mixture of the boogey man, crime and business thrown into a blender then arranged into a book. That’s what Panic Room is made of. The way Goddard throws all his cards on the table and confuses the hell out of you to neatly pull it together and still shock you is truly brilliant. I read the first 90% ish in one siting before falling asleep into the book.

Snap had me hanging from the edge of my seat, or more often the edge of the bathtub, with a heavy focus on crime drama it follows multiple characters journeys before gradually pulling them all together and connecting them. If you’re looking for a relaxing read give this one a miss because this will get your blood pumping and your brain desperately trying to put the pieces together.

This book was the one I looked forward to least, it sounded really romantic which is really not my thing~ but ~ I heard really good things about it so I forced myself to give it a fair shot. Shockingly it was my favourite. It followed a couple but there was little to no romance, focusing far more on the dark aspects of long term relationships along with exploring a future with an economic dystopia with a truly Big Brother is watching feel to it.

What To Eat:
Clio Lounge is the latest addition to the Bangor Highstreet and I must say possibly my favourite place to eat in/around Bangor now. It’s truly like nothing else here and the price is really low considering the quality of food & service. Finished off with a bubbly atmosphere and it seems they’re onto a winner! Don’t miss: Their mojito (mine was mocktail but still bloody amazing) and the halloumi with fried vegetables on the tapas menu.
What To Lust Over:
This month I’m feeling 50 shades of comfy neutrals, but make it fashun …
What To Watch:
If you haven’t watch You yet I have a few questions for you 1) How? 2) Why? 3) WHY?
You have all of the key features you would expect in a thriller but there is just something special underlying quietly that I just can’t put my finger on. Its hard to say exactly what it is but it is truly special and nothing like all the other thrillers out at the moment.
