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.
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.
There are some super exciting reads coming up for me soon and there are also some pretty sick releases that I am looking forward to, so lets get into it! The books that I have already purchased and are to be read are: Killing Commendatore by Haruki Murakami (surprise surprise) a novel about more of … Continue reading My TBR’s and Book Wishlist.
*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.’
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.
I feel like I talk about slumps quite often on here or my Instagram and unfortunately its because I seem to get into them quite often. Which is why it's so important that every time I get into them I recognise what's going wrong, what I can do to make them more bearable and less … Continue reading Little changes in my life that make a big difference.
