Books of 2016

I read 29 books, which is pretty pitiful, in 2016. It was quite a stressy sort of year.

Best book I read for the first time: two boys kissing by David Levithan
The worst book I read was: All Points North by Simon Armitage (sorry, Simon, but it wasn't that it was terrible, just ...hard going)

Films of 2016

I've messed the film list up because I'm sure I've watched more than I've listed.
Best film I watched for the first time: Inside Out
Worst film I watched: Definitely Tank Girl. What the hell was that? (Although, it's probably for the best as I'm sure if I listed Watchmen someone would actually murder me....*ducks*)

I'm was going to do a more detailed list particularly of the books but sadly my skills at multi-tasking are very poor and I am watching the new Sherlock as I write this which is very distracting.

Ooh, how did you find The Hanging Tree? And, for that matter, the two Rainbow Rowells?

:D I enjoyed the Watchmen film a lot... as a "oooh, that's interesting, look how they adapted _____" kind of thing. But I found it really went off the boil in the second half.

The series belongs to my mum so I hadn't read them in a while either, so like you I felt I needed to wrack my brain! I thought it was very funny and I did like the characters but I feel like I'd get more out of it if I reread all the others.

*nods* I agree with you about Attachments as I can... vaguely remember it? I haven't read Carry On but [personal profile] still_lycoris said the same as you about it. Not sure if I'll give it a go - I did like Fangirl though.

I was completely caught up when I read the comic and I'm not sure I would've been if I'd watched the film - there was definitely a point after which I was looking at the clock (or my watch, ha ha). I think it was about the same point I realised that the actress playing Silk Spectre was not providing a very convincing performance. I too liked Rorschach though. He is my favourite right-wing misogynistic borderline sociopathic vigilante hobo ^^
