So after almost a year since reading the first two parts of 1Q84, which I thoroughly enjoyed (see my Goodreads review for what I actually thought), I thought I would go back to Murakami and finally finish the series as I was absolutely pumped to see the narrative unravel and reveal the ending. Unfortunately, the … Continue reading My final thoughts on 1Q84.
This is my first post of the year and it has been a while since I posted last so I thought I'd do a little write up of my coming semester and what texts I am actually looking forward to and I think would be valuable for anyone to give a read. I am … Continue reading A look inside this Semester at Uni.
Before reading this book I knew that it was often regarded as a modern classic or at least a must-read. But, for some reason, I had it in my mind that it was just another young adult novel so I wasn't really expecting anything as actually grand as it had been hyped up to be. … Continue reading My thoughts on The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
In my Book Wishlist blog post, I wrote about how The Testaments was being published soon and if you haven't read the post, basically I said that I wasn't very excited about it because it felt disingenuous. The Handmaid's Tale was published over 30 years ago and in the last couple of years, the dystopia … Continue reading My review of The Testaments by Margaret Atwood.
In the week before uni started, I went a little spend happy, I couldn’t stop buying books and ended up buying around 8 new books on top of the many others I haven’t even read yet, not mentioning the reading I am supposed to be doing for my course, oops. That is what it's like … Continue reading I need to stop buying books…

I definitely enjoyed the book as the atmosphere and characters … Continue reading Killing Commendatore Haruki Murakami
I have been hesitant to try out a kindle E-reader for a long time. I used to bash them hard because I love physical books and the way that they look on shelves and such, there is something very therapeutic about just flicking through pages. I also worried that purchasing a kindle and buying e-books … Continue reading My feelings about Kindle E-readers.

*not all of the books are in the featured image because I've lent some to friends :)* Since my "Reading 30 books in 2019" post I have already documented a few reads that I have completed since then on this blog, namely: Reading Haruki Murakami Character mood board: Midori. Green. Review of John Williams' Stoner: … Continue reading Goodreads update!
Here comes another mood board. I'm really really enjoying them at the mo. This one is much more topical than the last, but that is very fitting for our boy Atticus Finch. He was without a doubt my favourite character from Harper Lee's 'To Kill A Mockingbird', a close second being Jean-Louise (Scout). I loved … Continue reading Character Mood board: Atticus Finch
