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.
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.

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.

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.
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 took an unexpected break from blogging recently, as I found it hard to keep on top of posting and was running out of inspiration. Not only that, but it was my birthday yesterday so I’ve taken time off work as well to reconnect with myself. I’ve had a couple of weeks of seeing friends… Read more
