With Leverage making a comeback, I was a little nervous going into it, especially with meeting new characters. However, I ended up really loving both Harry and Breanna from the get-go. It’s been so much fun to see them come into their own as Leverage: Redemption has progressed.

Season one was like a re-introduction to the Leverage world. It showed us what was different about this revival as well also what has carried over from the original but it also got us caught up on what the previous characters have been up to and where they currently are while simultaneously introducing us to both Harry and Breanna. It was done so well, with the two of them fitting in perfectly with the rest of the team, and so far season two has definitely allowed us to dive deeper into all of the characters.

It’s Christmas time in the Leverage: Redemption world! Parker goes all out with the decorations and her Christmas jumper and it’s all very cute and funny to watch, especially when she gives each member their own personalised Santa hat. It was also really good to hear about everyone’s plans and that even though those plans get completely interrupted, the team were happy to be together because it means they get to spend Christmas with family.

Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney | Book Review

I first became aware of Sally Rooney’s work back in 2020 but until now, I hadn’t actually read anything by her (or even watched any adaptions). After some contemplation — and seeing various opinions on social media — I settled on starting with Conversations with Friends and I’m so happy that I did. While I can’t say if it’s her best work, I certainly had the best time with it and it feels like a wonderful way to start delving into her books.

For those unaware, Conversations with Friends follows Frances, a student and aspiring writer who performs spoken word poetry with her best friend Bobbi who also happens to be her ex-girlfriend. The two of them meet and become friends with a journalist Melissa but as events unfold, Frances becomes much closer with Melissa’s husband Nick (an actor) and it all leads to Frances having to face who she is, her actions (and reactions), and what she wants.

Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead by Elle Cosimano | Book Review [Spoiler Free]

My first 5-star read of 2022 was Finlay Donovan Is Killing It and I absolutely devoured that book, instantly falling in love with it so, of course, I had to pick up the sequel: Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead. I’m going to say it right now. If you enjoyed that first book, you’ll get on well with this one. I was nervous going into it, wondering if it would live up to the first book, but I ended up loving it just as much.

Finlay Donovan Knocks ‘Em Dead is set not too long after the events of book one and it has a lot of the same characters. While Finlay continues to struggle with writing and deadlines, she is yet again thrust into the criminal world when her estranged husband becomes the target of a contract killer.
