What I’ve Been Watching: Eccentric Characters and Fights for Survival.

Welcome to yet another edition of What I’ve Been Watching. Now, most of you know that when it comes to TV my life has been dominated by the Peaky Blinders. However, I’ve also made it a point to catch up on some of the films I’d been wanting to watch. All of these films had elements to them that were really well executed, but out of all four films, Dunkirk was the one that hit the high note in terms of its overall production. Here is a summary of all the films I’ve been watching this winter.

Goodreads Summary
Zachary Ezra Rawlins is a graduate student in Vermont when he discovers a strange book hidden in the library stacks. As he turns the pages, entranced by tales of lovelorn prisoners, key collectors, and nameless acolytes, he reads something strange: a story from his own childhood. Bewildered by this inexplicable book and desperate to make sense of how his own life came to be recorded, Zachary uncovers a series of clues — a bee, a key, and a sword — that lead him to a masquerade party in New York, to a secret club, and through a doorway to a subterranean library, hidden far below the surface of the earth.

October Wrap Up 2018

After a successful reading month in September, I am back in my slump. I knew this would happen. Usually, after finishing a book I have an idea on what to read next, even if I wait a week before starting it. However, that did not happen after I finished Norse Mythology so I have no idea when I’ll pick up another book.

However, TV and films have filled the space of this reading slump. Specifically, the Peaky Blinders have taken over my life. If you have yet to watch this show feel free to check out this post where I urge everyone to and experience the stress that comes with the Peaky Blinders.

With that, here is a summary of what I got up on the blog in October.
