Blog chats, chocolate oranges and de-stress

This week, like the many others before it, has just gone by in a complete blur! I feel like we’re hurtling towards Christmas, not that I’m complaining because I love that time of year – but I also have so many assignments due in in December! So I would love for it to not come so quickly.
As I’m writing this blog post, I am also participating in an online blogger chat – which is my first time doing so. Already I’ve made contact with some more bloggers and expanded my network, and it’s a great chat, so I would really recommend checking those sort of things out!


Reading

Finished reading:
Eve of Man, by Giovanna and Tom Fletcher.
You can find my book review here!

Currently reading:
Shadow and Bone, by Leigh Bardugo
I’ve picked this up again recently because of the tv show news – how exciting was the casting!? I think because I’m reading it on my kindle, it’s a lot easier for me to forget about it than if it was a physical book. I am really enjoying it though!

A Curse so Dark and Lonely, by Brigid Kemmerer
I believe I’m about a third of the way through this now, and I absolutely love the character development and the writing style. I’m finding myself really flowing through this story.


Watching

Finished watching:
Peaky Blinders
Let’s just pretend that the new season hasn’t just premiered because I had caught up on it! And I’ve technically finished the seasons that are available on netflix, so this isn’t technically a lie!

Unbelievable
I binge watched this within a day because it was just so hooking and heartbreaking. The acting was just superb and I really felt for Marie.

Currently watching:
Peep Show
I wanted something lighthearted and easy to put on in the background while I did uni work, so this is what I’ve got on at the moment!


Blogging

This week has been slightly more productive for me in terms of blogging, I’m still settling in to my new routine at University so it is still a little bit rocky. I’ve got big plans for the future though on where I would love to see this blog going!

    Book Review Book: A Curse so Dark and Lonely Author: Brigid KemmererYear: 2019Pages: 484 This book gave me such a hangover, I ended up flicking the pages to make sure that I had read the end of it. When I found out that the sequel is coming out next year, I was so happy. I… Read more

  • The semiotics of learning about Public Relations early

    November 12, 2019 by

    I had a complete flashback to my Media A Level yesterday when I had a lecture on textual analysis. I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy to see Roland Barthes be mentioned and immediately think about my old media teacher, who first introduced me to the world of media. I never thought about how… Read more

    Book: Shadow and BoneAuthor: Leigh Bardugo Year: 2012Pages: 358 “talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show stopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique, completely not ever been done before” I read the Crows series before this one because I got stuck into Six of Crows more than I did with Shadow and Bone – I was wrong though to… Read more

  • Single or Self-Partnered?

    November 6, 2019 by

    Earlier this week in a interview Emma Watson spoke about her true feelings around turning 30 and still being single, she opened up about how it took a long time to understand and be truly happy on her own, but that she refers to it as being “self-partnered”. You could almost hear the backlash before… Read more

NEW TAG

Each week, undecided on the day as of yet, I will be summarizing my weekly review on what I’ve been learning during my Communications and Public Relations degree at University! I’m in my second year now so the workload has picked up, but I’m thriving off the environment and want to get used to writing more about the current climate of PR.


Thanks for reading, and keep tuned for this weeks posts!

-Personally, Emma
