A review of 2014 – entertainment
18th December 2014
Joe Blogs got in touch with me about a competition that Currys were running in which you can win yourself a load of Amazon Kindle goodies. It basically involves talking about your favourite films/TV shows/books in 2014.
I wanted to share this competition with you all while participating myself, and as I am about to start a series of “A review of 2014” posts I though this would tie in nicely. If you are interested in getting involved all the details are here. I’m not getting paid to advertise this competition or anything; I just thought you guys might like to win some stuff too.
Since I’ve been living in Liverpool I’ve been visiting the cinema a lot more due to the fact I can walk there in like 15 minutes. I’ve watched a few notable films this year, some of which were simply stunning (like Interstellar) and some that were pretty poorly written (like Godzilla). But for me it was the comic book films that I enjoyed watching the most.
Captain America Winter Solider was fantastic, but my favourite film of 2014 was Guardians of the Galaxy. Did anyone else fall in love with Groot?!
I didn’t really watch too much TV in 2014. I lost interest in my usual favourite, Greys Anatomy, and tried and gave up with a few other other new series.
In fact, the best TV series I watched in 2014 actually began 10 years ago. Tyrone and I watched Lost and became stupidly addicted. We ended up watching about 3 or 4 episodes every night, and one morning I woke up and genuinely wondered how they were all getting along on the island. Please help, have a problem!
I read quite a few books in 2014 compared to usual. Having to do physiotherapy followed by ice therapy three times a day gave me a little break each day and I would use this time to read. I carried on reading the Alex Cross series by James Patterson, which I’m still enjoying, but there was one book that I read and stood out as one of the best.
I read #GIRLBOSS, and I recommend you do to. You might have heard about it as it has been spoken about a lot in the blogging community. It’s all about Sophia Amoruso and the story of her business Nasty Gal. You might be rolling your eyes thinking “What’s that got to do with me?”. Honestly, if you need a bit of motivation to do something and make something of your life, this book will show you that you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it.
Not only did I find it an inspirational read, I also took away tonnes of tips for saving money, writing CVs and attending interviews.
What’s your favourite film/book/TV series of 2014?
