Favorite things

So I wanted to share with you a list of some of my favorite movies, books and shows from last year. These included some mainstream ones and lots of obscure foreign films (with subtitles). I had been enchanted with either the storytelling aspect or the visual or something odd or compelling in it. Sadly, I can’t find that list. I am sad I can’t share it with you and sad for me too as I can’t remember everything on the list (I watch a lot of movies).

I won’t end this post on a negative. I will share at least one film that was on there. It was the Secret World of Arrietty.


If you are a fan of Studio Ghibli movies, you might be aware of this treasure of an animation. It was nostalgic in the way of childhood crushes. The most beautiful aspect was definitely the visuals. To be that small and see our normal world anew! The garden was enchanting and had a meditative serene atmosphere. If you haven’t seen the film, I highly recommend it.

I will continue to look for that elusive list and hope to share with you some of my favorite finds. Have you discovered any book or film lately? I would love to hear about it.
