Monthly Wrap-Up: December - January


WE'RE ON THE BRINK OF A NEW YEAR.
Flipping heck. I'm excited, nervous, and terrified, but more of that in my 2018 resolutions post coming tomorrow ;)

December was a bit of a roller coaster. I went on a camp for the second week, which was rewarding but nerve-wracking, and yet I'm so happy I did it. Christmas was quiet and enjoyable, albeit for the inevitable family drama ;) But I still loved it.
And now for the wrap-up...

What I Watched in December



I watched quite a few films this month, but these were the only two I reviewed. Hidden Figures was my favourite. 


Next Up...


Obviously I have like a thousand million books I want to read in Jan, but these are the top priorities.





New Feature!


Ever since I wrote my Abuse is Being Romanticised post, I've wanted to do more to raise awareness about the topic and draw attention to its evil. As a result, I've decided to start a blog series where every Tuesday I'll post something short highlighting an example of romanticised abuse I've seen, and then say why I think it's wrong. 
And you can join! 

- Design your own header (or use mine)  and start posting - once a week, two times a week, whenever
- Share examples of romanticised abuse you've seen in books or films - doesn't even have to be a whole book or film; simple one scene is enough, if there's an instance of romanticised abuse in it
- Keep the post short. One to two paragraphs.
- Please link to my blog as the original creator.


Let's fight romanticised abuse together. 



Happy New Year! I hope it's an amazing one.

How was your December? What did you read or watch? 
What are you doing tonight to welcome in the New Year?
