I’m taking a break!

Don’t worry, it’s not a break from blogging! It’s my reading week at University so I’ve gone down to visit my Auntie and get a change of scenery – I’m still doing my work for university clearly, but it’s nice to do it somewhere else for a change. This should hopefully mean I can get caught up on some reading and tv shows as well!


Currently Reading:
A Curse so Dark and Lonely, by Brigid Kemmerer
I am loving this!! I thought it was a bit slow at the start, but it’s really picked up now and I am so hooked to the story. I’m finding it really hard to put down because I just want to see them get together. It’s a really difficult situation – because I want to finish, but I also don’t because I don’t want to say goodbye to the characters.

Girls of Paper and Fire, by Natasha Ngan
Me and my friend had to up the amount of chapters we read between each discussion, partly because of how short the chapters are but also because we really want to get into it. One of my favourite things about the story so far is the descriptions of women’s bodies – it’s just so delicate and well put together.

Shadow and Bone, by Leigh Bardugo
I have been reading this for so long now, I keep just dipping in and out of it. It’s hard to have three books on the go! It doesn’t really need saying, but I am loving it – it is Queen Bardugo’s writing after all.

Next to read:
Kingsbane, by Claire Legrand

I cannot wait to read this! I loved the first one in the series, and I just have to get to this one.


Currently Watching:
Peep Show
I didn’t think I would like this, I did try watching it but didn’t like the editing of the episodes. But I’ve got back into it now, and I’m finding it so funny. It’s such a great show to watch in the background while I’m doing stuff, or on the 9 hour coach ride to get down to my Auntie’s.


Last week was a supremely good blogging week for myself, I even ended up on the #thisweekinpr’s list for PR student bloggers. Check out below my most recent posts! I’ve got a lot of great ideas for the future of this blog as well.

    My friend bought me this for Christmas, because she’d heard such good things about it and thought it sounded perfect for me. She was right! I love the whole aesthetic of the Greek gods and anything that has powerful women involved – so this story ticked so many boxes for me. I loved being introduced… Read more

    April 5, 2020 by

    My friend bought me this for Christmas because she thought it would be a good read for me. I never usually like poetry at all, but this is a contemporary style that I can relate to and enjoy. Poetry isn’t my thing, so I’m not going to attempt to review it. But the pieces really… Read more

Thank you for reading! I hope you all had a good week.
