New year, new reads, new shows.
I started off the new year by reading a few comic books and finishing Sylvester by Georgette Heyer, narrated by Richard Armitage. I’ve been having a hard time focusing on longer reads at the minute, simply because I have so much to do, so short reads and audibooks are very helpful right now.
I really enjoyed Oddly Normal, which has adorable illustrations and a fairly sad storyline; Die!Die!Die! was intriguing. It’s by the same author as The Walking Dead and has gruesome opener, but looks to be really interesting. I’m curious to see where it goes! Has anyone read any of these?
I also started two new TV series: Young Wallander and The Alienist. I adored them both and cannot recommend The Alienist enough. Dakota Fanning, Luke Evans and Daniel Brühl make a fantastic trio! The mystery is intense and fairly un-guessable, which is something I’ve been waiting for. The costumes are gorgeous as well. Everything about the show is well done, honestly. If you enjoy dark mysteries, this one is enthralling.
Young Wallander is based a Swedish book series and was brilliantly done. I love the whole cast and thought it ended well. It has a second series coming, I believe, so the few things that weren’t wrapped up I’m assuming will be addressed in the coming season.

Loved the Umbrella Academy series but have yet to read any of the comics – I say that like I’ll actually get around to doing it… 😂
Got to admit, I’ve been a massive Dash and Lily fan on Netflix in Dec! It was so cheesy and Christmassy!
Haha, I’m so slow at getting around to all the things I want to read! I’m always behind!
I adored Dash and Lily!! ❤
I actually haven’t read any of these! Will have to take a closer look and see which I should add to my TBR!
I think most of them were free or free to borrow through Prime, too! 😊
