2022 #PopCultureResolutions

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 #PopCultureResolutions.

I haven't read very many graphic novels, but the ones I have read I have mostly enjoyed. I am going to be reading 12 graphic novels throughout the year in hopes of closing that particular blind spot a little bit.

As for movies, I love musicals. There are a definitely some I haven't seen and so I am looking forward to rectifying that in 2022.

My twelve graphic novels 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.

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.
