WEEK IN REVIEW: 1-13 January 2019

WEEK IN REVIEW: 1-13 January 2019

OVERVIEW:

Happy New Reading Challenge! We all know that’s the only reason we accept January’s existence. I basically have one goal this year: take down my TBR. At the start of 2019, it was at 107 books. I’m five (and a bit) down at the moment. SO CLOSE TO DOUBLE DIGITS.

MOVIE REVIEW | Second Act

Second Act was a sweet, fun movie about working your butt off to make the most of a second chance. While it was predictable at every turn, I was never bored by the storyline’s simplicity. It was also refreshing to see a movie where a few big mistakes were not overcome by one grand gesture. Second Act acknowledges that healing and reconciliation takes time, and can only be accomplished with small steps in the right direction.
