Top 5: Fictional Problematic Favs

We love the troublemakers in practically everything we watch/read. Here’s some of our favourites. Don’t we all have at least one – who are yours?

December is done. 2018 is done. We share our Monthly Favourites for the month of December. What was your favourite movie this month?

Alia’s Picks

Song: I Wanna Get Better (Rac Mix) by The Bleachers

Book: The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Book Summary

Tom Hazard is just an average person in every way except one: he lives through time in slow motion.

One year to a normal person, can be half a century to him. He has lived through the greatest moments of history: from Shakespeare, to the roaring twenties and straight through two great world wars. He’s survived it all by following one simple rule:

Never fall in love.
