Welcome to the third edition of ‘Sunday Sharing’. These posts are all about the things I’ve been loving lately including TV, music, gaming, blogs and other interesting links. Please feel free to share what you’ve been enjoying in the comments.
My partner finally persuaded me to watch one of his favourite shows and now that I’ve binged the entire first season and made a start on the second, I regret not getting into Mr Robot much sooner! It’s such a spectacularly written show and manages to keep you on the edge of your seat all the time. Rami Malek is an outstanding actor (which reminds me, I still need to see him as Freddie in Bohemian Rhapsody!)
Synopsis: Young, anti-social computer programmer Elliot works as a cybersecurity engineer during the day, but at night he is a vigilante hacker. He is recruited by the mysterious leader of an underground group of hackers to join their organization. Elliot’s task is to help bring down corporate America, including the company he is paid to protect, which presents him with a moral dilemma.
If you’re looking for an intense and mysterious thriller with an array of interesting characters, I highly recommend binging Mr Robot over the Christmas period.
‘Illidan: World of Warcraft’ by William King
I’m a little late to the party with this book in the Warcraft series, as it was the prelude to the Legion expansion from over 2 years ago. However, I’m really enjoying it so far particularly as I’m learning more about Illidan Stormrage, one of my favourite Warcraft characters, while also beginning to better understand Demon Hunters, my class of choice in WoW.
- As Christmas time can be quite overwhelming, I recommend Sophie Cliff’s excellent 24 day self care guide for the festive period.
- I’m a firm believer of not buying gifts just for the sake of it – it brings unnecessary stress and sometimes financial burden. This article by The Financial Diet about being more mindful and less wasteful this Christmas is a great read.
- I wish I was naturally more crafty so I could try making Little White Socks’ adorable DIY mermaid stocking.
- Far Cry: New Dawn was unveiled this week and it looks absolutely stunning. Although I’m surprised that another Far Cry game has been announced so soon after FC5 (I still need to catch up and play it), I’m really looking forward to New Dawn.
I stumbled upon Nolletra’s stunning portrait of the heroes of World of Warcraft on Twitter this week. The artists of the Warcraft community are so talented.
