Inspired by @ShawnKelly and @bjnovak of course
- •Adele "25"I know the entire planet bought this when it came out but what can I say, I'm a late adopter. Just picked it up. Loving it naturally. The rest of the world was right.
- •Jessi Klein's YOU'LL GROW OUT OF ITIs making me laugh out loud which books rarely do. I have to keep putting it down so I can save some for later.
- •Naps'Nuff said.
- •Ice cream drumsticks
This is me, completely clueless...people on social media use these expressions and I don't have a clue what they are talking about.
- •False flag
- •Cat fishing
Writing by the actor on the work, the life, and life outside the work
- •On The Night Manager for Radio Times (2016)
- •On his co-star Olivia Colman for Harper's Bazaar (2016)
- •On King Kong and the business of film promotion for the Financial Times (2016)
- •Your book is more interesting than your job

- •You can't evenJust once I'd like to call in and say "I can't even" and they'd be like "totally fine."
Inspired by @msalisonpill. I rarely re-read so it was really fun for me to look at my shelf and do this list. Now I want to re-read all of these!
- •THE SOLACE OF LEAVING EARLY by Haven KimmelA beautifully written, thoughtful, complicated novel that I learn more from every time I read it. One of my favourites.
- •THE HORSEMAN'S GRAVES by Jacqueline BakerA stunningly dark story that ranks with Cormac McCarthy in my world. The opening section is some of the best, most stunning, writing I have ever read.
- •THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV by Fyodor DostoevskyBecause you really have to read it more than once to get anything out of it. Ya gotta work for this one.
