#PopCultureResolution for 2021

We all have pop culture blind spots. It might be that genre you barely read, or that movie you have been meaning to get to. I have been thinking about the books I read and what my own pop culture blind spots are.  I am going to make an effort each year to help fill some of those blind spots and hopefully make my reading choices more varied and diverse than what I currently consume in the process.

With this goal in mind I launched my #PopCultureResolutions last year. I had so much fun doing it, and managed to keep with it for the entire year so I figured I would do it again.

I love thrillers and mysteries. I have read quite a few but there are still so many books I haven't managed to get to. In terms of movies I haven't watched that many horror movies, and it's not a genre I normally gravitate toward without some extra hook or incentive. 

I decided for 2021 I would read twelve thriller/mystery books and watch twelve horror movies.

My twelve thriller/mystery books are:

My schedule looks like this (and if anyone wants to read any of these as well, I am happy to chat about them). Each of them links to their Goodreads pages for more details.

Here are the horror movies I am going to watch for this event:

I love comments. Thank you for stopping by my blog and thank you even more for leaving me a comment.

I have decided to make this an awards free blog. I appreciate the gesture, and love that you thought of my blog, however I simply can't pass them along as required.
