One of my favourite reads of 2016 came just before it ended and by golly I think it might possibly be one of my favourite reads of all time. 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.

While I have come to adore Nano (with the grand total of two that… Continue reading Nanowrimo 2016 wrap up!
So I have this friend... well, techincally she's my housemate. Don't get me wrong, I love her to pieces, but that isn't to say she isn't challenging. The trouble with living with people, and particularly living with people whilst you study (which I can only imagine adds to the never ending list of stresses), is… Continue reading Fight or Flight
So it's coming round to that time of the year again when we all chain ourselves to our laptops and spire to write a ridiculous amount of words in a ridiculous short amount of time. As of such, I figured now would be a good time to talk about my plans and goals for the… Continue reading Nanowrimo Plans
How to start? I'm never very good at that, starting I mean. I always like to imagine myself in the middle of something - far away from an awkward beginning and with a sorrowful ending far away in the distance. So here we are - halfway through an introduction. What to say? What to say?… Continue reading Just a Passing Wave,
