Weekly Round-Up: Reading and watching

I've been reading a lot this week. I also finished watching Godless on Netflix, and have been watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S and The 100 sporadically.  This is my last week of holiday, though, so I'm gonna make the most of it ;) 

Posts of the week: 
Book Review: THE SNOWMAN

Currently Reading

I'm still dragging my way through And I Darken, and I'm halfway through Renegades with Uma :)

For Review

AHHHH!! THIS WAS THE BEST BOOKMAIL WEEK. I got an amazing signed hardcover of The Language of Thorns, and a beautiful ARC of Everless - both from Pan Macmillan. 

I've already finished reading Everless ;) It was that good.

The BAFTAS will be held on the 18th of February, and Joanna Lumley will be presenting. 

It was a Golden Globes like no other. Women came together in black, standing against sexual harassment and assault. There were some amazing speeches in line with this protest, with Oprah's  keeping people on their feet. 

Have a look at the upcoming Ophelia film, starring Daisy Ridley and Naomi Watts. 

Big Little Lies came out strong in the TV section with 4 wins, and The Shape of The Water won Best Picture.

Neeson says that the sexual assault allegations in Hollywood have started a witch-hunt. To a degree, I actually agree that he has a point. The article is worth reading.   

Five women have accused Franco of sexual assault and harassment, making him the latest male in Hollywood to come under fire for inappropriate behaviour. 

Coming Up...

This week, I'll be reviewing Everless and Wonder Woman: Warbringer. There'll also be another Romanticised Abuse post.

Week 2 of January is gone! Can you believe it?!
