Reading Recommendations For November

November is here- it’s now finally socially acceptable to think about Christmas (at least I hope so!), the days are darker, and its the time to light the candles and have the fairy lights on while drinking a cup of hot chocolate. And many of these things mean that November is a cosy stay at…

Finding Friends Within Books

Being a Literature student, I spend a lot of time alone. Most of it is sitting alone, hunched over a book in the library, or curled up on my bed with a cup of camomile tea, again with books. I’ve never been somebody to have many friends. I would spend a whole summer only talking…

Literary Stationary!!

Hello! I am sorry I have not posted in SO long! I have been busy doing work experience at a Newspaper, that blog post will be coming sometime soon! Today though, it is all about stationary! And not just stationary – but – *whispers* literary stationary! With the new school year already having started for…

So many mixed thoughts about this book…

A Review of The Graces by Laure Eve. It’s officially released tomorrow, September 1st, so I thought today is a good day to talk about this book. I think the main thing about this book was that it needed more time when being written. Because it could have been amazing. It had the potential. It’s…

Who was Anne Bronte? Thoughts on Agnes Grey.

I have been interested in the Bronte sisters since I first read Charlotte’s Jane Eyre, and fell in love with it. Ever since I have found those three quiet sisters living on the moors as fascinating as a fairy tale. It wasn’t long before I delved into Wuthering Heights. But for some reason it took…

Making A Poem From Taylor Swift Lyrics

There is something about Taylor Swift’s lyrics that make me always have them in my head, every day. When i’m working, cleaning, or just bored, they are going round in my head, particularly the lyrics of my favourite song, All Too Well. There’s something about the lyrics of the Red era that stay with me…

Illumicrate’s August Book Box!!

Hello!! Today’s post is all about book subscription boxes! My first box that I ordered was Illumicrate, and I am so excited to share with you all what my box contained! The day it arrived was Tuesday 9th August and I was so excited and happy on that day, constantly refreshing my tracking page to…

Dreaming In Theatre – Shakespeare

One of my favourite plays by Shakespeare has to be A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I must admit, I am new to this play, having only seen it for the first time at The Globe Theatre in May. But something I love from it is how differently it can be portrayed. The first time I saw…

Tips On Getting Back Into Writing

For the past year now, I have secretly been struggling to get back into the habit of fiction writing. Last summer, I was writing in any spare moment, it was all I was doing, and I loved it more than anything. But then I got a second job, and then started my first year at…

A Hopeful Sky

This is a different kind of post.. not about books or writing or reading. But a trail of thoughts I had last night while walking home… The best thing about working at the theatre is having this most beautiful walk home. Seeing all the colours in the sky, the sea ripple like it’s silk, overhearing…

The books that I will possibly, probably, never ever read

We all have those books on our shelf that we eye shamefully. The ones we quickly glance at and then look away, guilty of our desire to never actually read them. But please tell me its something we all do, that I am right in saying that? Otherwise I will feel even more guilty. These…
