It’s a bit too early to put together a yearly recap, but I can’t think of anything else to blog about so this will have to do it. Just think of it as a list of recommendations rather than a yearly recap.
Book: Wonder When You’ll Miss Me by Amanda Davis. This book is about revenge and leaving your dark past behind and starting anew (joining a circus!). It’s heartbreaking and hopeful at the same time. I borrowed this book from our local library but I wish I owned it so I could re-read it anytime I want. It’s that good.
Movie: Young at Heart, directed by Stephen Walker. This documentary proves that senior citizens, even the octogenarians, can rock-and-roll as hard as the rest of us. These senior citizens who belong to a chorus called Young at Heart will show you how to grow old gracefully with music.
Music: I can’t decide which band I like the most but Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, and Bowerbirds are the bands that I discovered this year and really enjoy. None of them is Canadian but I think I’ve written enough about Canadian artists as it is.
If you have any books, movies, or bands/artists you’d like to recommend, please post it in the comment and I’ll check it out. Boring post, huh? Hopefully I’ll be more interesting tomorrow, but probably not! Hehe.
