And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie from Folio Society

Book review: And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

I got in touch with The Folio Society a couple of months ago as they seemed like the perfect beautiful book collaboration; their editions really are something special. I was offered two titles for review purposes and, after selecting A Room of One's Own for Feminist Book Fortnight, I struggled to narrow down my second… Continue reading Book review: And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie

Exceedingly geeky cakes

If you follow me on Instagram you'll have noticed a fair few tea and cake posts lately. When Dom told me that Mr Kipling had released a line of Roald Dahl cakes, I knew I had to get them all.

Some thoughts on Mamma Mia 2 (spoilers)

I wasn't planning on writing a full blog post for this film. I planned on writing a paragraph or two straight from the cinema and saving it as a draft to form part of my next Friday Favourites. Then I went off on tangent after tangent and figured what the heck! So... I just got… Continue reading Some thoughts on Mamma Mia 2 (spoilers)
