2020 Most Anticipated

A new year means new content, and I love taking a look at all the books, games and movies that are going to be coming out over the next twelve months.

Compared to previous years, however, there isn’t as much capturing my interest. There are a lot of sequels coming out for series I haven’t read and there aren’t any big games I’m really excited about. That being said, there are a few books and games coming out this year that I’m hyped for even if it isn’t as much as in previous years. Movies are the one area that looks pretty lacklustre this year, so I’ve skipped that category this time.

Onwards, to my most anticipated books and games of the year 2020!

3 Goals for 2020

Happy New Year, everyone! Welcome to the year 2020. We’re in the future now. Flying cars are right around the corner, and science fiction is now science fact.

Well, no. Not really, but when you say 2020, it certainly gives you that vibe, doesn’t it?

Anyway, it’s the beginning of a brand new year. 365 days of possibility. The air is brimming with optimism and passion. I touched on this briefly only last week. The energy this time of year, is to me at least, infectious.

19 Favourites of 2019

I love these posts. I love seeing people narrow down the best of the best and attempt to distil their favourite content from everything they’ve seen, read or played throughout the year. It’s fun to look back at, and it’s great if your looking for more recommended reads or games. It’s that sort of end-of-the-year staple content that I always look forward to. And I also enjoy taking the time to go through my own year of content consumption to see what I would consider a favourite.

But I’m also a lazy woman. I could have broken this up into a few posts – one focused on my favourite books, one about my favourite games, and another for any other random favourites I’d found throughout the year. But honestly, I didn’t consume as much as I have in previous years to make for very large lists, and I thought it sounded catchier if I wrapped up 2019 with 19 favourites. So I’ve lumped ’em all together.

Anyway, enough about my process. It’s been a weird and busy year, but there were still some gems that I want to talk about. Here are 19 of my favourites from 2019.

Reaching Your Goals in 2020

Ah, that classic end-of-the-year tradition. One of my first posts on this blog was about goal-setting, and that was back in January of this year. Seems only fitting that I close out the year with another post about reaching your goals.

I’ve always been a little conflicted where the New Year is concerned. I like the atmosphere and the optimism around goal-setting, but I also think the hype and the expectation undercut the value behind it all.

Let's Talk About The Rise of Skywalker

If you want the short version: I enjoyed it, and I would watch it again. It was not a perfect Star Wars movie, it did not have the most satisfying ending, and it was not the best of the Star Wars movies. But it was an enjoyable ride. There were some fun moments and some touching moments, and lots of cool space stuff.

Now let’s get into the discussion. From this point, I’ll be heavily spoiling the plot and discussing what I thought of the final movie in the Skywalker Saga. If you don’t want to be spoiled, do not continue.
