2017 Re-Cap

As 2017 winds to a close, I thought I would take a moment to reflect on some of my favorite books, movies, t.v. shows and music. So, here they are, in no particular order. Note: some of them have been reviewed already, some of these reviews are forthcoming, and some will never be reviewed on the blog but belong on the list nevertheless.

  1. Pachinko, by Min Jin Lee
  2. Theft by Finding, Diaries 1977-2002, by David Sedaris
  3. Reputation: Taylor Swift gifted us with a brand new album and it was everything I had hoped it would be and more. “Honey, I rose up from the dead, I do it all the time.” Truer words could not have been spoken, Tay.
  4. Alias Grace: I will admit that I have not read the novel that this miniseries is based on, but I thoroughly enjoyed. I can’t really speak to how it holds up as an adaptation of a literary work, but it was some intensely compelling binge-worthy television.
  5. The Child Finder by Rene Denfeld
  6. Kedi 
  7. Glow: I didn’t review this show but I shamelessly binged when it came out. Bonus, it stars two cast members from Mad Men (my all-time favorite t.v. show,) and Marc Maron.
  8. Bonfire, by Kristen Ritter. This review is forthcoming, so I won’t say too much about it here.
  9. Happy Death Day
  10. Beasts of Extraordinary Circumstance, by Ruth Emmie Lang. This review is also forthcoming so I won’t say too much more about this book other than I loved, loved, loved it. It might be tied with Pachinko for my absolute favorite book of 2017.
  11. IT
  12. Stranger Things 2: Stranger Things 2 was analyzed and reviewed EVERYWHERE so I refrained from reviewing it here. Although I thought it was off to a slower start, and contained a few un-necessary characters and one un-necessary episode, I still gobbled it up and loved (almost) every minute. Also, Mrs. Wheeler is life goals. I’m referring specifically to her glorious bathtub, harlequin romance novel, and Barbra 8 Track.
  13. Goodbye, Vitamin by Rachel Khong
  14. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel: Review is also forthcoming readers, so you have that to look forward to!
