Happier Thinking [Self-Care Sunday #47]

I used to be quite dubious about any book that claimed to have anything to do with mindfulness or self-help but I've actually learned a lot from some of these books in the last year. When Lana Grace Riva offered me a review copy of her book, Happier Thinking, I thought it would make a… Continue reading Happier Thinking [Self-Care Sunday #47]

Never has it been so easy to be a bookworm. If, like me, you're a sucker for a stylish cover and a bargain, you need to check out Penguin's new Modern series. With 50 titles at just £1 each (I know, right!), you can sample a classic writer's work in a bitesize chunk. Don't fancy… Continue reading Something old and something new with Penguin Modern

Make Change! Art to inspire action

Make Change

If there's one thing I've learned lately, it's that one person has the power to make change, be that positive or negative. It might sound cheesey to say out loud but it's true. Every significant change in history has started with one person and their belief that they have this power. Abrams + Chronicle have… Continue reading Make Change

Abrams + Chronicle spoil us with top feminist titles.

Getting my shit together

If you're a regular reader, you might recall me posting about my fuck budget last year and my massive girl crush on Sarah Knight, having read The Life Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck and You Do You. 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

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
