August Reads

If you’ve read my monthly catch up – which hopefully you have! – you’ll find out that this month has been extremely busy for me. Which is all well and good, and it has been a great month, but it left me with very little time to read. However, I decided to continue with this […]

Paper Towns: Film Review

With the release of Paper Towns this week, the film adaptation of John Green’s book of the same title, I’m sure every John Green fan who eagerly awaited The Fault in Our Stars has been queuing up to see this new film. Despite all the excitement about this film, I have to be honest and […]

I’ve read some interesting books this month, and although I haven’t done one before, I thought I would give you guys a summary of what I’ve been reading this month and what I thought of them, in case anyone needs ideas about what to read, or just a good old discussion about different books! So […]

Go Set A Watchman – Harper Lee: Book Review

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is one of those books that everybody’s read at some point or another in their lives (and if you haven’t you should be ashamed of yourself), and until now, Harper Lee hasn’t published any other work. However, two days ago came the release of Go Set a Watchman, […]

If you’ve read many of my other posts (which hopefully you have!) you should […]

Favourite Writers

The other day I was looking through my books and there are certain authors that crop up a lot, and it got me to thinking about my favourite writers.

June Catch-Up!

June has been a pretty damn glorious month, so here’s a post to tell you guys what I’ve been up to. Despite moaning about the weather being too hot (like today – it’s like being in a sauna constantly) and feeling in constant need of a shower, I love June because the hot weather also […]

Applying to Study English Literature

It took me an absolute age to decide what I wanted to study at university (my indecision is actually the reason why I’m taking a gap year at the moment), but when I eventually decided, it turned out I made the wrong choice! I originally applied to do joint English Literature and German Language, but […]

Dexter: Book vs. TV Series

There are very few occasions when I end up preferring a film/TV adaptation to the book, but Dexter most definitely managed it. After the first ten minutes, I was hooked, and after finding out my boyfriend had never seen it, I took the opportunity for a re-watching of the emotional rollercoaster that is Dexter. For […]
