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 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
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. When I was planning this post I knew that I wanted to mood board one of the girls, Naoko or Midori. 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.
Happy World Book Day! Who are you embodying this year? I thought this post would be rather fitting to post for today so I hope you enjoy! Over the last couple of years I have fallen in love with reading, regrettably I wasn't much of a reader when I was younger it simply didn't catch … Continue reading Reading 30 books in 2019
I am absolutely in love with graphic novels at the moment, especially this graphic diary. I read 'Carnet De Voyage' a little bit out of chronology as I haven't yet read 'Blankets' and I had never seen any other work by Craig Thompson prior to this travel diaries. I think I enjoy auto-biographical graphic novels … Continue reading Graphic diary: Carnet De Voyage // Craig Thompson & my love for the non-fiction.
