Last week the housemates and I went to Tate Modern to see the Dora Maar photography and painting exhibition, this was mainly for one of my housemates who is doing a photography course but I found the pieces super interesting, so I thought I would write a little post on some of my favourite photos … Continue reading A trip to the exhibition for Dora Maar.
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.

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
Welcome back! It's been a while... So to herald a new blog post at last, I thought I'd write a cheeky review on John Williams' 'Stoner'. There are slight spoilers in the sense of relationships and my opinion on characters, but no critical plot spoilers and I definitely won't ruin the end! I hope that … Continue reading Review of John Williams’ Stoner. ‘An Insight Into The Human Condition.’
Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. (...again) Midori. This is a simplified version of how I see Midori in Murakami's Norwegian Wood.

I found that although Naoki seems to be the most troubled and main … Continue reading Character Mood board: Midori. Green.
In my effort to complete my Goodread's 2019 reading competition I decided to purchase a few more of Murakami's books because I have absolutely fallen in love with his writing. I haven't read enough of his work to have a holistic view, but I know enough to express how much it resonates with me and … Continue reading Reading Haruki Murakami.

Part I Women in my life.SO, first of all, my two best friends (Hope, photo 1 and … Continue reading Happy International Women’s Day!!
