My friend Emma lent me Follow Your Gut by Rob Knight a few months ago & I finally got around to reading it towards the end of last year. I’m always interested in wellbeing but gut health was something I knew little about. I didn’t even know what microbes were, let alone that I have 100 … More Follow Your Gut | Books
The Day We Disappeared by Lucy Robinson is a book that’s been on my shelf for about 10 million years. I originally picked it up at a Penguin event I went to back in 2015 (that time I crammed all the free books into 2 bags!) and it’s been winking at me ever since. I … More The Day We Disappeared Review | Books

Bonnier Zaffre – thank you very much, guys! – sent me an ARC of The Other Half of Happiness by Ayisha Malik earlier this year. I was so excited to read … More The Other Half of Happiness Review | Books
I have no idea what has happened this year. Apart from the world apparently going completely mad, I’ve hardly read any books! Five. That’s how bad. Just five. Shocking. Anyway, I thought I’d do a review of one of them because, why not?

It stayed with me because it was so different and it was such a unique way of talking about such a difficult topic. So when Hot Key Books sent me Night Shift by Debi Gliori, I was … More Night Shift Review | Books
Hey lovely people, I was tagged by BookBloke to do the Reader Confessions Tag and so here I am doing it 🙂 Thank you to BookBloke for tagging me! 😀 Now let’s get straight to it!
I have something to admit… These past few days, I’ve been slacking. I usually wake up early every morning and write a little bit more of the novel I’ve been working on. But recently, I’ve been feeling a tad stuck. So I’ve dug out a few books from my bookshelf to get me back in … More 5 Books Every Writer Should Own | Books
The books I’ve been reading recently have mainly been non-fiction and last month, I decided that I wanted something a bit more romantic to give myself a break from the factual based stuff. Luckily, sitting on my shelf was a book that my sister had lent me a long time ago, Vince & Joy by Lisa Jewell. It … More Vince & Joy | Book Review
