BOOK REVIEW: the sun and her flowers, by Rupi Kaur

Book Number: 40/40 You read the above correctly- I completed my GoodReads 2017 Challenge- YAY!! Obviously, I’m going to continue book-worming my way into the new year, but I’m so excited that I’ve officially read 40 books and counting. Book number 40 was a special read; this year’s Book Number One was Rupi Kaur’s Milk…

Small Book Haul!

Does one even “haul” books? Is this a thing? Well, I’m making it a thing, because if it isn’t already, it should be! As I sit here nibbling on some fig rolls, I’m silently scolding myself for spending more money on books- as if I didn’t already have enough– and metaphorically slapping myself on the…

BOOK REVIEW: Everyday Sexism, by Laura Bates

Feminist. It’s become such a “bad” word, hasn’t it? You’re either praised and lifted up above all others for being liberal and awesome, or you’re branded a bra-burning nutter who ‘should get back in the kitchen lol’. There’s no middle ground, and among most people where I live, it’s seen as a dangerous, rebellious thing….

BOOK REVIEW: Room, by Emma Donoghue

Honesty time- I am a picky reader. Or perhaps, it’d better to say I’m a “safe” reader. I tend to stick to the same genres over and over again, being “sure” that I’ll like the book “because it’ll be similar to that book.” But that’s no way to live! If genres are like ice cream…

3 Book Recommendations For When You’re Not Sure What To Read

Hello Lovely Humans! As someone who loves books, I’ve experienced that gut-wrenching feeling of uncertainty- that feeling of being lost and swimming in a sea of endless books in which you’re quickly sinking. What the heck am I going to read next?!? Almost every time I finished a book, I’d have this “Ahhhh!” moment of…

BOOK REVIEW: Not Working, by Lisa Owens

   Reading Challenge: 32/40 “Here, you should read this,” says Chris, with a cheeky eyebrow raise. He was half-kidding, half-recommending, as I had just quit my job (and then got two new ones, but that’s another story). However, the blurb sounding intriguing, the dust jacket was enticing, and I ordered a copy from Amazon later…

5 Things Which Helped Me Through My OCD

OCD is poopy*. (*world’s biggest understatement right there) While I don’t know exactly how long I’ve *had* OCD, I do know that it was around this time last year, when things started getting bad. It became this big, unbearable, messy, anxiety-inducing disaster, just in time for my final year at uni. Yay! I think one…

BOOK REVIEW: Present Over Perfect, by Shauna Niequist

BOOK 35/40 Hello dearest readers! I hope you’re all keeping well and feeling as lovely as ever. So I am bringing you yet another book review- this week, I finished reading Shauna Niequist’s Present Over Perfect. I had heard rave reviews about this book- I’d seen some of the Robertson family Instagramming it, I’d seen other…
