Rebel girls

This year I have been inspired by so many rebel girls - writers, politicians, activists, actresses... There's a reason why 'feminism' is Merriam-Webster dictionary's word of the year and why a group of brave women have been named as Time's 'person' of the year. It really is the year of the women. Unfortunately, these stories… Continue reading Rebel girls

You Do You by Sarah Knight book review

You Do You

'You do you' is an expression I've heard a lot lately, mainly from a sassy AF colleague, and I've longed to have that kind of attitude. Now, thanks to everyone's favourite potty-mouthed anti-guru, it's something I've started to adopt in my day-to-day life. Sarah Knight, author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck… Continue reading You Do You

Busy B 2018 diary review

Planning for 2018 with Busy B #BusyQueenB

I was recently selected as one of Busy B's Brand Ambassadors and to say I was excited would be a huge understatement. Could there be a more fitting collaboration than one between a nerdy blogger and a stationery brand which not only produces functional and fun products (a vital requirement of every item of stationery… Continue reading Planning for 2018 with Busy B #BusyQueenB

My Fuck Budget

Apologies, if you've not read Sarah Knight's The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a Fuck, the title of this post might seem a bit odd. Let me explain.

Lit Chat: An alternative book club

I'm not a member of a book club but, as a book blogger, I'm a member of various online groups where I love to discuss what I'm reading and share recommendations.

Blog tour: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

It's not often that I'll read a book that I don't know much about. I'm usually hooked by an intriguing synopsis, have already read something by the author, I've fallen for a pretty cover or, if it's being reviewed everywhere, I want to know what everyone's talking about. It wasn't the case with Celeste Ng's… Continue reading Blog tour: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng

I had never heard of David Meredith before I received his email and, as it's an independent release, I hadn't heard of Aaru*, but the synopsis hooked me in straight… Continue reading Book review: Aaru by David Meredith
