I recently read her second book, Get Your Shit Together, and I highly recommend it, especially… Continue reading Getting my shit together

Book review: A Taxonomy of Love by Rachael Allen

I'm so glad we live in a world where there are so many popular young adult books about mental health/disorders but, dare I say it, it's becoming difficult to find those with a unique voice. Holly Bourne smashed it with Am I Normal Yet, Sophie Kinsella's Finding Audrey was a great foray into the young… Continue reading Book review: A Taxonomy of Love by Rachael Allen

Here’s to strong women.

I saw Star Wars Episode VIII in the cinema the other day and, in amongst trailers for Infinity War and Ready Player One, and ads for cars and mobile phones, I saw this: It made me think about the countless discussions I have with Luke about modern feminism. I totally support his arguments that there… Continue reading Here’s to strong women.

Star Wars, Unicorns and La La Land #LittleLoves

Not gonna lie, it's been a rough week. I've spent the last nine days battling a cold with a cough so bad it's actually made me vomit. Fortunately the doctor has reassured me it will soon pass and shouldn't delay my surgery but it's been hard going. All three of us are poorly and sharing… Continue reading Star Wars, Unicorns and La La Land #LittleLoves

A post-Christmas book haul

You can never have too many books, although I do need to spend some time reorganising my bookshelves before I go back to work next week. Y'see, I had some pennies and vouchers left under my Christmas tree and so it would have been rude not to buy seven new books, right? Feast your eyes… Continue reading A post-Christmas book haul

Christmas 2017 in photos

And, just like that, Christmas is over for another year. Well, I'm still celebrating for another week and a half as I don't go back to work until the eighth but, as far as Jenson is concerned, Christmas is over as he's opened all of his presents!

Book review: The Self-Care Project by Jayne Hardy (Self-Care Sunday #38)

I've been raving about Blurt on this blog for months now. For the uninitiated, they're a social enterprise dedicated to helping those affected by depression. They "raise awareness, provide tools and knowledge to help proactive recovery and challenge the stigma that prevents people reaching out for help". I've mentioned a couple of their tools before:… Continue reading Book review: The Self-Care Project by Jayne Hardy (Self-Care Sunday #38)

My 2017 Goodreads Reading Challenge

I'm writing this post 13 days before the end of the year because I know I don't have a hope in hell of finishing another book. Y'see, I have one working day left of the year and the only time I get a chance to read is when I'm on the bus (for nine hours… Continue reading My 2017 Goodreads Reading Challenge
