  • Sarah Beeny's Selling Houses
  • New Girl
  • Solo (movie)


  • The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman (I read a prompt that was along the lines of "if someone wanted to read a book that would tell them more about you [not necessarily your favorite book, just one that said a lot about you], which book would it be?" It has a special place in my heart.)
