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.

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.

Green. Review of John Williams' Stoner: … Continue reading Goodreads update!
(ignore the state of me in the first picture, just happy ennit) If you've had a look at my about page you would know that for the past year I've been studying Theology and Religious studies at Roehampton University, I have enjoyed it for the most part but as the year went by I increasingly felt … Continue reading Tips To Help You Choose Your Uni Course // A New Chapter.
