Just like that another year seems to have come and gone. I’ve totted up the amount of books I’ve read: 32, the number of shows I’ve seen: 9 and the exhibitions I’ve visited: 3.
On a personal note, I started a new job, organised my office’s book club and began writing for a living (hooray!). I’ve also redesigned this blog and planned far more content than I managed to write; that’s something to work on for 2019. So without further ado, here are some of my favourite experiences of 2018:
- Meeting Markus Zusak, he was welcoming and inspirational, funny and honest. There will be a blog on both The Bridge of Clay and The Book Thief soon, I promise.
- Rethinking my routine and the way I spend my time having read Morning by Allan Jenkins.
- Seeing Pity, an explosion on what theatre can be – I’m planning on seeing much more experimental theatre in 2019.
- Visiting the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy, I’d love to make this an annual trip.
So what will 2019 have in store? Hopefully more book and theatre reviews and where possible meeting authors and attending book events.
