Every January, I set my reading challenge goal for the year. In 2022, I read 40 books, and this year, I am planning to read 50. Here is a list of the books I want to read this year. What do you think? What books do you want to read?(more…)
Since the pandemic, my favourite hobby has been to escape reality in every way I can. Since I prefer to stay safe and stay in, I watch a couple of movies and/or tv shows and read books every day after work and during the weekends. I’m into Egyptian movies and TV shows so bad. I have watched so many of them that I decided to write reviews again on my blog. I’ll write about all kinds of movies, music, books, etc. even if I’m late. I’ll write whenever I feel like it and today, I feel like writing about Lo2lo2, starring Mai Omar.
The show tells the story of a girl, Lo2lo2, who grew up in extreme poverty and was abandoned to an orphanage by her grandmother who couldn’t take care of her. Her father was a greedy criminal, and her mother was arrested instead of him because he ran away. When she became an adult, Lo2lo2 decided to escape the orphanage with her only friend, Marwa (played by Hadeer Abdelnasser), and start a new life. Lo2lo2 always dreamt of becoming a singer. The show goes on showing the ups and downs of a young woman who finds fame, and once she does, her life is never the same.(more…)

However, that doesn’t mean I never studied film. As a matter of fact, when I was in CEGEP, I was in the Arts and Letters program and attended various courses on film. Then, in university, I chose World Cinemas as my minor.(more…)
