Book review: Are We All Lemmings & Snowflakes? by Holly Bourne

I mentioned in yesterday's Bibliophile post that Holly Bourne is the reason I fell back in love with young adult books in my twenties. If it wasn't for Soulmates, I would never have heard of The Spinster Trilogy, I probably would never have read The Fault in Our Stars (and subsequently everything else John Green… Continue reading Book review: Are We All Lemmings & Snowflakes? by Holly Bourne

#FeministBookFortnight: A wish list

I re-joined my local library days ahead of Feminist Book Fortnight and now my world has suddenly opened up in terms of reading potential. I've been struggling with a budget recently which has curtailed my spending on anything other than bills and food and now I can read again - beyond the titles which lovely… Continue reading #FeministBookFortnight: A wish list

This week has very much been about appreciating the little things. With the weather too cold and meh to go out and do anything fun, we've spent a lot of time watching (and re-watching) Frozen. Here's this week's highlights. 1. Jenson being cute AF. I know I think he's super cute 99.9% of the time… Continue reading Friday Favourites #33

Friday Favourites #32

How is it the weekend already? This week has flown by; probably because I've gone to bed with Jenson every night this week so there hasn't been any downtime. But he was in bed by 8pm so woooo! Hopefully I can schedule a few posts and finish my book before I crash. Wish me luck!… Continue reading Friday Favourites #32

My 2016 Goodreads Challenge

This year I set myself my first challenge - to read 50 books in 2016. I… Continue reading My 2016 Goodreads Challenge
