Blogging With Beth
This is the first blog post I have ever had to write, so please bare with me if I start to waffle on…
It seems like in times like these, everything is all about technology, social media, star ratings, reading stuff and my list goes on. So I thought I would jump onboard and put a few things out there that are worth having a look at!
Since this is my first blog post and your giving it a read I thought I would start with a few books I have been reading that can also be binge watched too.
The first book I gave a read of at the start of isolation was “The Handmaids Tales”. A bit of a back story to this, my friends Tracey and Leila at work have been trying to get me to watch this for years and now I’m hooked. But before I started watching the series on NowTV I started with the book which is pretty much the first season.
My advice to anyone who reads the book, it’s a hard read to start with but it becomes very addictive and ends on such a tense cliff-hanger! Thankfully there is a sequel called “The Testaments” that is available online.
My second choice in books to read is “A Series of Unfortunate Events”. Now believe it or not this is actually a kid’s series with 13 (lucky for some) books to read. Which, tell the tale of the Baudelaire children who lose their parents in a fire under suspicious circumstances. The 3 children are forced to put their talents to the test to get out of sticky situations from an evil Count that is after their enormous fortune.
I love reading this series so much because there is so much creativity involved with how the children have to survive.
If you can’t be bothered to read through all 13 books though, there is a really funny film version of the first 3 books, staring Jim Carey, available on Sky/NowTv. Or! Netflix have an original series available, which has all episodes available to watch starring Neil Patrick Harris. Who in my opinion does a really good job as Count Olaf.
And that’s all I have this week! Until next time where I’ll be talking about Xbox games that I’ve been playing!
