This weekend, I had a revelation: I, in my entirety, am a happy little home bug. Coming home and being surrounded by my family, and familiar things, and love, and (let's be real) a small menagerie of animals, has made me realise that I, most definitely, cannot be happier than when I am somwhere I… Continue reading Happy Little Home Bug.
At long last, despite having preordered it so it arrived on its release, I finally picked up and finished Emily Sowden's Trapped in Silver. I think it's safe to say that I have really been looking forward to this read, having read the excerpts as they came out before the release, but unfortunately my Uni… Continue reading Trapped in Silver by Emily Sowden.
I am, and inevitably will forever be, hopelessly nostalgic. Since a young age, I've always tried to attach too much importance to pointless things just so, one day, I might look back and remember some insignificant event that happened on one insignificant day.

I fell in love with this autobiography's witty style and lovable voice and when I wondered what to post this week I knew it just had… Continue reading ‘Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter’ by Simone de Beauvoir.
Trapped in Silver by Emily Sowden is a book I have been anticipating for a long time. It comes out on the 7th Feb 2017 so it isn't quite in my page devouring hands but Oftomes (the publishers) have released the first four chapters on Wattpad and, on seeing this, I just had to check… Continue reading ‘Trapped in Silver’ extracts review!
So 2016 is finally over. Hooray?! Actually, while 2016 was significantly horrible, the year actually had quite a few positives for me: I started writing more; I worked on my mental health; I found some new bookish favourites. But, rather than dwell on the year that has passed, I'm ready to start plowing forward… Continue reading 2017 Resolutions …
