Last year’s attempt to compile book reviews failed because I didn’t update it in real time. It was just too much for me to do it all at the end of the year, especially because Novembers and Decembers are generally busier than other months.
This year, I’m trying to update the books as I finished them in real time when they are fresh in my mind. Below are books that I read and enjoyed.
Essentialism by Greg McKeown – 4/5 [Nov’18 – Jan ’19]
It provided me a sense of clarity and empowered me to make intentional decisions, specifically saying no now so that I won’t regret later. Timely book to finish at the start of the year, as I’m trying to re-focus and re-prioritize.Read More »
Another year. Another post of TVs that rank and review all the shows that I spent time watching. This year, I enjoyed Korean dramas more than Western dramas and liked that they were available on Netflix in real time.
Killing Eve S1 – 4 / 5
A refreshing thriller / crime drama that deserved all the praise and more. The cat and mouse chase between the assassin and British detective was so addictive that I binged the entire season in one sitting. Can’t wait to see the second season.
After Life S1 – 4 / 5
Unexpectedly delightful show! Staying true to its European roots, the pace was slower and the dialogue was caustic. Wish that it was longer and can’t wait for the second season.Read More »
Parasite – 5/5
The best movie of the year for me. So many unexpected twists and turns. What I thought was going to be a low key movie about a poor family infiltrating a rich family to earn a living turned out to be a strange tragedy in the end. So glad that I went to the theaters to enjoy it!
The Green Book – 4.5/5
Sadness and hope packaged into one! What a fascinating true story and great to see that the two were friends for life.Read More »
1. Online cesspool is looking more and more like today’s society at large plagued with inequality.
2. The results are in : gig economy sucks for workers.Read More »
1. Comfort and convenience have a lot of consequences that I’ve been blind to. Who would’ve imagine Amazon delivery boxes taking over NYC sidewalks!
2. Art can be found anywhere, if you look hard enough. And yes, pancake art is a thing!Read More »
