Feminism, Stranger Things and Food Swap

This week seems to have gone quicker than all of the others this year, after the really intense and fun week at Shooting Star PR – this week was more about getting back to a normal routine. I managed to volunteer back at Oxfam and update their social media pages and events on Facebook and I finished two books this week. I’ve also swapped quite a bit of my food shopping because I want to aim to eat healthier and maybe loose a little bit of weight as well.


Finished Reading:

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
I enjoyed this so much more than I thought I would! It had a lot more depth to it than I realised and I’ve already got some thoughts written down but I can’t wait to write a full on review for it.

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman, by Mary Wollstonecraft.
This was only a small portion of what she wrote, through penguin books ‘Great Ideas’ collection of works. I found it hugely inspirational and I hope to be able to write up some of my favourite quotes.

Next to Read:

Crooked Kingdom, by Leigh Bardugo.

I bought this a while back after I read Six of Crows and absolutely loved it! I can not put off reading this any longer, because there are so many questions that I need answering – and I know I’m going to love it.


Watching:

Stranger Things Season 3:

I’m actually really loving this season! I know that some people are gutted that Noah hasn’t been given more screentime for Will, but I think it’s good to let other characters have a bit more of a shining. I really loved watching the blossoming friendship between Max and El. I can’t wait to write some of my thoughts up on it.


Blogging:

I actually stuck to my blogging schedule this week, so I’m really happy about that. I’ve got a busy week coming up but hopefully I can still scehdule some pieces to go up. Fingers crossed I may have an exciting opportunity to write about as well.

    I wanted to write about this campaign because I thought it was such an ingenious idea and it’s one of my favourite recent ones! The campaign started off by recognizing the issue that needed to be fixed – the fact that people were overloooking the need to rehome dogs and cats because they were too… Read more

  • What makes me pick up a book tag

    June 22, 2020 by

    Hello everyone! Last week was very quiet on here, so I thought I would start this week off with a good old book tag! I wasn’t tagged to do this, but below you’ll find the credits from where I found it and the original creator. I haven’t tagged anyone so feel free to give it… Read more

  • Weekly Update

    June 14, 2020 by

    I haven’t done much reading this week, but I have been busy doing other things! I finished reading A Heart so Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer, and absolutely loved it. It has everything I need to enjoy a book: well-built characters, beautifully built world, interesting plot-line and actually amazing writing. I love her way… Read more
