January 2019- Words Travel Film picks on what to read, where to travel & what to watch.
It's a New Year, It's a New Dawn, and I'm feeling good...I'm singing the words of Michael Bublé and wishing you a fabulous Positive New Year.
Here we are in the last year of a decade. Next year is the Roaring 20's...Wow!! However did we get here? Well, there is one thing I know for sure, the 20’s will be here in a blink of an eye, so let’s make this year the best, before an entire new decade roars in.
Here’s my suggestions on how to do just that. Escape to another time and place with a book, film or vacation.
Each Month of 2019, Words Travel Film will give you some worthy tips on what to read, watch and hot travel deals.
What to read in January:
1. Unbury Carol- Josh Malerman. If you watched Birdbox on Netflix, and you enjoyed its dark suspense, and understood it’s deeper meaning, you will love Unbury Carol written by the same author. A sort of twisted -sleeping -beauty -goes -western. A woman, Carol of course, has a rare disease; she falls into a deep sleep coma, and you would think she’s dead. Only two people know it;s the disease, her husband and ex-lover, and she’s very wealthy…get the plot? I love the title and find myself enjoying how it rolls off the tongue. Unbury Carol…on Amazon.
2. Fear- by Bob Woodward. If you like political reading, check this book out. Another book to scare you in a completely different way. I'm not sure which book is scarier.
Travel deals for January:
1. There are some hot airfare deals going on right now, check out Europe flights on WOW air for $ $49.00. Yes, one way tickets starting at $49 to Iceland and other cities, ends January 18th so do it now.
2. Hot warm island deals are happening as well. Book it has a special on an all-inclusive resort in Puerto Morelos. I have stayed at this resort, loved the resort and this little town. Think sun and white beaches. In fact the beauty for this location inspired my novel, A Deep Thing. This is a worthy deal for those looking to bask in the sun, relax, eat, drink and be merry. For $141.00 a person per night, you will receive an all-inclusive experience. Swim up pool bars, dining options( that are restaurants not buffets) and everything included in the price. (Even room service anytime you want it). Now Resorts.
What to Watch in January: (Two films based on novels. I can’t help it I'm a writer and I love movies based off books):
Birdbox on Netflix starring Sandra Bullock and John Malkovich. I really enjoyed this dark dystopian world, the hidden message and the suspense.
A Simple Favor- rent on Redbox or Amazon Prime. Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively and Henry Golding. Interesting and twisty plot. For a moment, I thought a child of Quentin Tarantino directed this film. Check it out.
That’s my January picks. See you in February.
