Audio Thursday 15th of December

Another Thursday and another week closer to Christmas :D. And surprisingly, I haven’t heard “Last Christmas” playing yet… strange. No matter, it will be going through my head now anyway.

Let’s talk about movie adaptations

Everyone is writing about movie adaptations today, I know it’s the current TTT topic. I haven’t joined this group, but it seems like a great topic, so I’m going ti write about it anyway :). But I feel like I don’t want to limit myself to only book adaptations… I like games too after all 😀
