The Weekend Reading List

I feel like the holiday season well and truly kicked off, this week, because my diary was crammed with festive events. On Monday evening I was lucky enough to attend the UK premiere of Last Christmas, which was held at the BFI on London’s Southbank. It felt like such a special London moment, and I highly recommend the movie – Emma Thompson has so many hilarious lines.

I also went to two Christmas light switch-on events, during the week. And festive decorations are up, throughout the city, which is so cheerful!

If you’re also getting into the festive spirit, there are a few holiday season links scattered throughout this week’s roundup. I hope you enjoy…

Modern Love is one of my favourite podcasts, and I was very excited to hear a TV adaptation was coming to Amazon Prime. So far I’ve watched a few episodes, and I absolutely adore it. I was completely blown away by Anne Hathaway’s Modern Love episode, and I haven’t been able to stop talking about it, this week. Please make some time to watch it, if you haven’t already (it’s only 30 minutes).
