I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Steph from Stephs World and I feel as though I’ve made her wait way, way long enough. Like, I actually feel guilty now. If you haven’t read Stephs blog yet please check it out- she has the most amazing recipes, the most convincing suggestions for beauty and a brilliant taste in all things theatre. So, here goes.   1)What is your favourite drink to order

Daughter of Smoke and Bone

I wouldn’t say I’ve traveled very much. Not that I wouldn’t want to travel, I mean, If someone offered me a couple of thousand pounds and let me jump on any plane to any country and then another I’d do that tomorrow. I just haven’t had the opportunity; you guys know how it is. Anyway, a couple of years ago I went to Marrakesh. It was the first real holiday

Does anyone else find that the sunshine makes them a lot sleepier than normal? I’ve been sweeping through my Goodreads Challenge in the last couple of weeks but now the sun has come out every time I pick up my book and my eyes start doing that hypnotic dance that eyes tend to do when you’re reading, I just can’t seem to be able to stay awake. Honestly, I’m hopeless.

Me Before You Review Story Nook

I do not like crying. I especially do not like crying over a book, however emotionally charged it might be. There was so much rave over Me Before You by Jojo Moyes but me, I prefer to stay away from books concerning severe illness, disaster and/or death. It really makes me paranoid and then that makes me not able to sleep. And not in the paranormal “what was that noise” sort

Oh. Black Fairy Tale. What is wrong with me? Why did I like this book so much?! It was probably one of the most disturbing books I think I’ve ever read. Sometimes, when I’m having one of those days where my imagination is over worked, when I can’t believe the thoughts going round in my own head, when I feel like I should be locked away, I reach for a

 Oh boy. Okay. I actually read The Paper Magician a while ago, in fact it was the first book I read of 2016 under a naive cloud of New Years excitement. I should probably say, this will be a short one. I was so disappointed. I don’t think I’ve ever had to force myself to finish a book quite as hard as I did with this. But, finish I did.

You know when you crave for something so much, you have a specific idea in mind when you go searching and then you think you’ve found it and because of that everything which follows is a complete disappointment? This was what I experienced with We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves. For that reason I want anyone who reads this to take what I say with the tiniest pinch of salt you

All the Birds in the Sky Review Story Nook

All the Birds in the Sky was probably my favourite of my 2016 Goodreads challenge so far (and I don’t want you to think I’m getting ahead of myself because it’s May). I could actually just leave it at that and hope that you pick it up because I say that it’s all kinds of awesome. But I’m not going to because when I think about this book I just

Longbourn Review Story Nook

I don’t particularly like to find myself among the likes of the Family Bennet or at Longbourn very often. I read Pride and Prejudice as a teenager and never again. Watched most adaptations but the story itself never quite sat right with me. This is for 2 simple reasons: Elizabeth Bennet is the worst person. Deep down under those little witty quips and behind her compliments I can sense her searing jealousy. In fact,

Game of Thrones Season 6

Oh HBO. You are putting a spring in my step. Silicon Valley (which I will get to in another post) AND Game of Thrones. Press play. You know you want to. Every run up to a new season of Game of Thrones I try to have an epic marathon catch up before the premiere but this April was different and so my reaction to the mini catch up before it
