Obligatory Year-End Post

Obligatory year-end post, short and odd:

Best Movies:

1) Maleficent
2) Snowpiercer
3) Guardians of the Galaxy
4) Belle
5) Captain America: The Winter Soldier
6) The Grand Budapest Hotel
7) Hector and the Search for Happiness

Best Books:

1) Hild by Nicola Griffith
2) Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
3) Elysium by Jennifer Brissett
4) Lone Wolf by Aleksandr Voinov and L.A. Witt

In a number of ways, 2014 was worse than 2013, and I'm SO glad it's almost over. But the Wheel of Life turns, and there will be many more adventures this year.

Hild is one of the first books I need to read in 2015 - you've spoke about it before, and it sounds amazing :DDD

(and cos I'm a moron who pressed enter BEFORE the next sentence)

Hope your 2015 is a much better year for you :))

LET ME FLAIL AT YOU. Just, three women's stories, all woven around the story of Rapunzel and the court of the sun-king and the women who was Titian's muse and basically its fantastic. The Wild Girl is about Dortchen Wild who helped with the collection of Grimm's fairytales, and puts you through the wringer, but is worth reading :D
