Ach, bit late with this, sorry. Been a busy little motherfucker, though, you know, writing books, looking after the kids, going on holiday to a warm country, shit like that.
Soooo, anyway, below is a list of what I consumed in March. Didn’t read a single screenplay, which is shocking, but there you go. Was on deadlines, lots to review, holiday to plan and go on. Still no excuse.
Some of the books I read that weren’t for review were picked up from our hotel bookshelf and were fucking dreadful. I won’t say which.
The best things I read were Sara Gran’s Claire DeWitt and the Bohemian Highway, which is out in July, and Ruth Ozeki’s A Tale for the Time Being. Both brilliant in very different ways.
For some unknown reason, all the movies I watched this month are ones I’d seen before.
Oh, I’ve also been watching Broadchurch on ITV which is fantastic. Best British crime drama I’ve seen in ages.
