Best of 2018

It’s very hard to pick a favourite but Circe is the only book that has left a good impression on me even after months reading it. I still remember all the mythologies and storyline and facts from this book. Read the full review here.

One of the most entertaining and sweetest graphic novel I’ve read this year. Fell in love with every single page. The setting in Paris, the time period and the progressive ideas explored in this story are everything ❤ Will do a full review soon! You can still read this post for some of my faves comics in Fall !

Still a shock for me but yes..Witchcraft and everything you like in a teenage drama but add a bit of gore and horror elements 😀 I didn’t expect to love this show that much. You can read my full review for the show here.


I think I watched all the movies coming out this year LOL but A Quiet Place surely tops everything with its perfect balance of suspense, thriller and the complex family dynamics. Read how I rank my movies here. Although it’s a mid year ranking, the top 1 still stands.

Coming in second, third and fourth would probably be Red Sparrow, Molly’s Game and Spiderman Spider-verse.


Oh gosh, a lot of things happened in 2018 but my highlights are probably the moments I spend with my family and friends. I lost a lot of friends this year but as expected, also found some new ones.

The amazing opportunities of food blogging that also allows me to collaborate of restaurants and meet all these chefs in the Montreal culinary scene has been an eye-opening. Being able to bring my family along in my collabs is a huge plus, we get free food and we get to spend time together ❤ Lastly, my first semester in Medschool, even if it was such a pain in the ass, I learned so many things and to really get some hands-on experience that I would never had before in other health programs.

I love taking on new challenges, I am the kind of person who likes to do a lot of things out of her comfort zone and I think 2018 was all about that.

Taking on photography, travel to Europe alone, to watercoloring and make the jump to medicine and leave all my permanent job behind. Life is all about experiences and I hope 2019 will allow me to be even more adventurous.

  • The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was sooo good! Can’t wait for season 2! 😀
    I hope you continue to have lots of awesome new experiences in the New Year! ❤


  • I am not reading a lot of comics, but the prince and the dressmaker sounds amazing, I really need to give this one a try 🙂
    Here’s to more adventure and fun in 2019 for you, Trang, I really hope so and I’m so happy and proud of everything you’ve accomplished this year ❤


  • Sounds like you’ve had a very remarkable year. I’ve just got myself a copy of Circe and I am so excited to read it. I think the best show I watched this year was Peaky Blinders. I was floored by how amazing that show is. I hope 2019 is kind to you and that you have plenty more adventures to look forward to.


  • One of my goals for the new year is reading more and making blogging more systematic. I am glad you had a great year and I hope the new year is as great as well.


  • Adventure Time!! 😀 Love that show 🙂

    I didn’t know you had a foodie instagram 🙂 One of my best friends is a successful food blogger in Melbourne, I LOVE her pics. Will follow you as well now ❤

    It's interesting to see that one of your top picks, the Sabrina show, got lots of negative reviews this year. I love seeing a positive one for a change! And it also shows, that opinions vary a LOT and even if something doesn't work well with the general audience, it might still be something for you personally.

    Have a great 2019 🙂


  • Aww I hope you’ll have several adventurous moments in 2019 too.

    Also, I need to see that Spiderverse movie because I’ve been hearing such great things about it.


  • YES, Sabrina and Molly’s Game were absolute perfection ❤ ❤ I can't wait for April!
    I still need to read Circe, though… I've heard amazing things! Also, the cover is breathtaking.
    Best of luck with everything in 2019, Trang 🙂 Hope it's everything you wished for and more – life and blog-wise ^^


  • It seems like 2018 was a pretty great year for you! Here’s to more adventures in 2019!

    I just finished watching Sabrina and it took me a few episodes to get into it, but now I am totally IN LOVE. It gives me serious Buffy vibes, and I’m excited to see how Sabrina’s character develops in part 2 – now she’s embraced her full witchy nature I think she’s going to have some more fun.


  • It truly amazes me how you can do so many things and experience so much! 😊 I wish you a 2019 filled with great adventures, opportunities and happiness 😘 see you soon ❤️


  • I didn’t even know about your food blog, Trang {I’ve been M.I.A, sorry}.
    I’m a real foodie so everything looks so amazing and yummy!
    I’ve started Sabrina, but I haven’t finished it yet – at the moment I’m feeling kinda meh about it, I’m at episode 4 and everyone keeps reassuring me it gets better, obviously you loved it 😂

    It really looks like you had an amazing 2018 and I hope that 2019 is an even better year for you ❤️


  • Oh Circe was just amazing wasn’t it? I’m not sure if I liked it more than TSOA (or whether you can even compare those two books because they’re both amazing) but if I could only choose one favourite read of 2018 it would probably be that one. Also I really want to watch The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I loved Sabrina the Teenage Witch when I was a child so even though you can’t really compare the two I want to watch this new take for the nostalgia! 😀
    Great post Trang. 🙂 ❤
