‘Bye 2012

One year is coming to an end and the other is right around the corner. Time to look back (and look forward.) So here are some things I liked/disliked over the last 12 months and things I’ve planned for 2013.


Highlights of 2012:

  • Being chosen for the first ever UNESCO Dublin City of Literature Childrens reading project
  • Meeting so so SO many Arthur Quinn fans and forgetting about any earlier book events nerves
  • Matilda: the Musical
  • Barcelona
  • The Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt
  • Locke & Key: Clockworks by Joe Hill
  • City of Bohane by Kevin Barry
  • The Dark Tower series by Stephen King
  • The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
  • Croc & Bird by Alexis Deacon
  • ZomB by Darren Shan
  • Argo, Looper, Paranorman, Skyfall, Cabin in the Woods
  • Boardwalk Empire Season 3
  • Finally watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer from start to finish!

Lowlights of 2012:

  • Prometheus, Dark Knight Rises
  • Homeland Season 2
  • HHhH by┬áLaurent Binet (didn’t live up to the hype at all.)

Plans for 2013:

  • The release of Arthur Quinn and Hell’s Keeper (I’ve been looking forward to this one coming out since before book one! There are some big surprises coming and I can’t wait for them to be finally revealed.)
  • I have a VERY rough idea for a short film that I’d like to make. It’s been a few years since I wrote/directed anything so it’ll be nice to get behind the camera again this year.
  • There are some books coming out in 2013 that I’m really looking forward to. Neil Gaiman and Joe Hill’s new works are top of the list!
