Quarterly review: FY15Q4

Each quarter I do a quick roundup of the book and film reviews that I do on Goodreads and Letterboxd. These reviews are too short and too off-the-cuff to be included with the more in depth reviews I do on this site. Below are the highlights of the quarter.

Two trends you may detect are “Syria” and “Star Wars”.

Books

I have been doing better at making sure I write a few notes for each book I read on GoodReads. Some of these “off-the-cuff” reviews are pretty long.
