My Favourites of 2013!

Here are a few of my favourite things from 2013! These aren’t all particularly from 2013, but they are what I enjoyed throughout the year.

The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

I have wrote short reviews on these books, within the Books section of my blog! So I will spare writing more opinions and direct you there instead! Also, these books are both having films created!



The Lumineers

Four Year Strong


Arctic Monkeys

San Cisco



Monsters University

The film that everyone was waiting for! Although it wasn’t as good as the original Monsters Inc, I still really enjoyed this film and will watch it over and over! I really enjoyed it as a film in itself too, (just like what I thought about Cars 2). I’m definitely getting a copy of this for my collection!


Wreck It Ralph
Excellent! I saw this film and immediately fell in love with it! Although the film is so good by itself, I fell in love with it even more, as it had retro game references throughout it, and featured characters from my childhood!


Saving Mr Banks
I saw this film last week and I adored it! I have a pretty big love for Disney, but whilst watching this film, I had to hold back tears at several occasions! I really enjoyed how it was factual and you get to learn a lot of detail about the Mary Poppins film! Every Disney fan must see this film!

I didn’t really know what to expect from this film, but when I went to the cinema to see it, I got incredibly excited as I am obsessed with anything to do with space. I thought ‘How could they do so much, that’ll keep people interested whilst it’s only set in one main ‘scene’?’ but I was captivated all the way through this! Such a good watch! I have done a small review (more of an opinion) in the Films section of my blog.

Star Trek: Into Darkness
Amazing! The effects were incredible! I’m not going to say much about this, as you should see the first film beforehand! But as a Star Trek fan, I was impressed with this! Benedict Cumberbatch’s role was also really good.

The Heat
Hysterical! I’m not usually one to laugh out loud at a film, but the mix of the comedy in this, and the funny family that couldn’t stop screaming with laughter behind us in the cinema, made it even more funny! There’s not much to say about this, other than you should give it a go!

Cosmetic Brands
MAC, Rimmel London, Essie

Vera Wang ‘Rock Princess’

Paco Robanne ‘Lady Million’


TV Series

How I Met Your Mother

I have never been able to really get into this series when it’s on television, but this is a series that you have to watch from the first episode (or at least the introduction of the first episode) – I love this! It’s so funny, it’s quite ‘Friends’-esq aswell. Not to mention, there’s 8 series of this on US Netflix!

I heard everyone talking about this series, so I eventually thought that I would give it a go! Especially as it was on Netflix and I don’t tend to watch live tv! I actually really enjoyed these, I have 2 episodes left and I have heard that there’s more to come in 2014!

The Carrie Diaries
For all of the Sex & The City fans, and even people that have never seen S&TC before – this is a great series to watch! It has had a lot of criticism when it comes to comparing it to S&TC and if it’s accurate, but I just really enjoy the series as it is!

      I cannot wait! Although I’m usually like ‘they’re going to ruin it’, I don’t think they’ll be able to! 😀 x

Let me know what you think!
