December 2020 Wrap Up

For this last month of the I have a great mixture of Christmas books and films plus even a TV Christmas Special that you will love. However, the favourite of the month was Ben Miller’s Christmas adventure The Night I Met Father Christmas, now usually I stay away from celebrate written books as they annoy me a rant for another time. However, this little book which is perfect for ages seven upwards perfectly captured the spirit of Christmas in all its glory. Continuing with books my other favourite this month was Weird Things Customers Say In Bookshops mainly because I recognised so many of people and conversations in this book having worked as a bookseller for a few years. Then to comics it is Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur Volume 1 BFF which as it says on the tin has a dinosaur in it plus great representation in as well. The most peculiar and fun adventure I have been on Marvel please adapt this! Then to films as you can imagine it has mostly been Christmas films so no surprise the winner is The Christmas Chronicles I just love the adventure and the story set around. It takes me to my happy place. The TV show there is no question about it finishing my re-watch of season 2 of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I highly recommend this show if you like your TV dark.
