While there might be some things that never change, we as people still constantly evolve just like the world around us. Our thoughts, our tastes, our opinions – with every new grain of information something in us could change completely. We might idolise someone one minute and cringe our noses at their stupidity the next, we might find a movie absolutely brilliant, only to fall out of love with it two years later.

So I thought, mix it up, and here are four different genre-based recommendations that comfort me.

60 seems like a big number. Though I begun with this feature two years ago in January, I haven’t kept up with it weekly and yet 60 is quite a big number.
