My first favourites of 2016!
◌ Loved this article on Toni Morrison.
◌ This is a pledge I can get behind!
◌ H. and I watched A Most Violent Year — a quiet but thought-provoking film about morals. We liked it.
◌ Reading the Guardian’s Weekend magazine is one of the rituals I look forward to every Saturday and I was so thrilled to see a cover story on Ellen Page!
◌ Speaking of previews, winter ’16 in TV.
◌ I watched Vice’s prison documentary on the flight to Canada in December. It’s a good one.
◌ I’m a little skeptical of so many of these clickbait lists, but every once in a while they do make you feel good! 16 Uncomfortable Feelings That Actually Indicate You’re On The Right Path.
◌ Beg, borrow, or steal Station Eleven — one of the best books I have ever read. Just read it. The Narrow Road to the Deep North, last year’s Pulitzer winner, was also very very good. Harrowing, but jaw-droppingly beautiful writing.
◌ I’m late on this, since
it’s been on since 2009 I started watching The Good Wife in October, but … it’s a good show! And on Netflix in the UK and Canada.
