The 140 Character Review: January 2018 in Books

In 2017, I read over 120 books and reviewed every single thing I finished. I’m sure you’ll agree, that was quite an impressive feat?! Don’t get me wrong, I am really pleased that I have some recorded thoughts summarising everything I read, I found that writing a longer review for everything to be routine and something to do for my wrap post, rather than something to do for me. So this year I have decided to bring by the 140 Character Review to summarise everything I read – of course some will also have a longer review because I have too many feelings!

The 140 Character Review is my short and concise way of expressing my feelings on watch I watch and read. Throwing it back to the original twitter limit of 140 characters, I try to summarise my opinions to tweet length. To read other 140 Character Review posts, click here. Continue reading

The 140 Character Review: Welcome Back!

Guys, I read a lot books. I watch a lot of TV and film. I take into account other people’s opinions when I choose what to read and write, but I am quite bad at reviewing things myself. OK, I know not everyone is going to care what I think or what I say, but it’s nice to be able to give a little bit back to the bookish and TV/Film world, to review what I read/watch, and to keep a record of what it made me think at the time. This year, I’ve also set some pretty big goals and resolutions, namely reviewing everything I read, so I thought that a helping hand was needed.

So, with this in mind, I have decided to bring back my old blogging meme The 140 Character Review. Quite simply, it is a review that could be composed and completed within the length of a tweet (well, before they upped the character limit!) The time taken to review something in such a short format is a lot less than writing a full review, but it still captures my thoughts and feelings. I also find that writing with such a low count makes you think concisely and clearly about the media you have consumed.  Continue reading

The 140 Character Review: Marvel TV

The 140 character review is a short and to the point tweet length review of, well, anything really (but mainly books, movies, live productions, and TV shows). It was born from a desire to review everything I watched, read, and saw, without committing to long length reviews.  To see more, click here.

Today, I have continued with one of my favourite collections: The Marvel Universe. I  decided to split it into 3 sections, Phase 1, Phase 2, and TV series, which will be released over 3 weekends. Two weeks ago, I reviewed Phase 1, last weekend was Phase 2, and this week I delve into the little screen: Continue reading

The 140 Character Review: Reborn

Way back when I used to blog regularly, and have a vague theme to this madness, I used to periodically post a 140 character review. I enjoyed it, and it actually make me think a little bit about what I read and watched. And it took less time than producing a full review, but still made me feel like I had made an effort.

So I’m bringing it back…watch this space!

The 140 Character Film Review – Marvel Mayhem

Jade and I are officially mid-Marvel binge. For those of you who live under rocks and in caves The Avengers (2): Age of Ultron is out on May 1st. I am super-duper, over-the-top, cannot wait, oh my gosh excited. To prepare, I decided I wanted to watch all the of the Marvel cinematic universe releases (and of course make sure I am up to date with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D) prior to its release. Jade hasn’t yet seen all of the films (a cinematic travesty) and wanted to re-watch the ones she had seen, so here we now are.marvel_cinematic_universe_facebook_cover_by_andrewmjbaker-d7zjept
