Ahh, spring has sprung!
It’s so wonderful being able to drive to work and return home while it’s still light – the days seem so much longer 🙂
Throughout March, I was officially moving into my flat and sorting out lots of life admin – bills, bills, bills – but I still found time to find a few favourite things along the way.

Happy Sunday, everyone!
I’ve written another book review – hurrah! It’s one that I was meant to write 3 months ago…we’ll brush over that part.
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 it as I loved the first book in the series, Sofia Khan Is Not Obliged.

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?

Hola lovely people!
This year is absolutely flying by – I can’t believe we’re nearly halfway through already…
Last week, I celebrated my 24th birthday by eating lots (of course) and going to the Hay on Wye book festival.

It’s the start of a new year and I think pretty much everyone I know is glad to see the back of 2016! What a weird year!
Although there were a lot of highlights in 2016, I didn’t do half the things I said I was going to do.

Hey lovely people,
Can you believe we’ve only got 2 months of 2016 left?! November has brought some icy cold weather with it which is pretty convenient as it’s officially Novel Writing Month – staying in my nice warm bed & writing some more of my book on the weekends has been absolutely lush.
I started writing my first novel on my Masters programme in 2014 & it has been a bit of a struggle, mainly because I’ve never written something this long before! Continue reading “Novel Writing Month! | Writing”
I’m all about the characters in a book.
To me, they are the biggest aspect of the whole thing – I love seeing how their minds work & what decisions they make!

Well folks, we’re into my favourite season – autumn! I love it when the weather gets that little bit colder & it’s acceptable to cwtch up with a book, an oversized jumper and a hot cup of tea.
I didn’t read as many books as I hoped to over the summer but I did read enough to warrant a wrap-up so here it is 🙂 Continue reading “Summer Reading Wrap-Up | Books”
Hey lovely people,

Today is Women’s Equality Day in the US – a day that deserves plenty of celebration and lots of conversation. On the 26th August 1920, women were granted official permission to vote by the US Government.
Although I live in the UK, I feel that an achievement for women anywhere is an achievement for women everywhere. We are still fighting sexism worldwide every day but thanks to the women of previous generations, we have a lot more rights than they did.
When I was younger, I definitely took my right to vote for granted. To put it simply, I wasn’t interested in politics at all. I didn’t really care who was in charge of the country or what it would mean for me because I had more important things to worry about like who was gossiping about who, of course! But everything changed for me when I went to university… Continue reading “Why Celebrate Women’s Equality Day? | News”
