After writing my previous post about classics I got thinking about the ones that I've read in the past, as well as the ones I want to read in the future. So I've compiled a list of just that. Classics I have read 1. Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte This was probably one of the first … Continue reading 5 Classics I’ve read and 5 I haven’t
Black Panther. Had an incredibly opening box office weekend, but, even more than that, it continued to have good success afterwards. Why? Well, in addition to having an incredible cast and music of all African American artists, it had a good plot, and I think that's had a big role to play. What Black Panther … Continue reading Relatable Villains and Questionable Heroes
Lately I've been reading Anna Karenina, a novel by Leo Tolstoy, and just like anybody else reading a book they enjoy, I've been fanatically discussing it with people I know. What I've been noticing, however, is the lack of people knowing the book and the disinterest that some have in regards to classics. (Note that … Continue reading On the Dying Readership of Classics
Floored is a fairly recently published novel by seven authors (so many I know): Sara Barnard, Holly Bourne, Melinda Salisbury, Tanya Byrne, Non Pratt, Eleanor Wood and Lisa Williamson. It tells the story of how 6 teenagers meet in a lift one day by chance, each from different backgrounds and are there for different reasons, … Continue reading Floored | Book Review
This year I went to YALC: Young Adult Literature Convention, on the Saturday of the event, where I got to meet authors and go to panels. After my previous post on who I was going to see this year and past years (which I'll link here) I thought to do an overview of my time … Continue reading What I Did At YALC 2018
This post is a collab I've done with Elm whose blog I've only been following for a while now but I've been absolutely loving. We decided to both write posts on our experience with public exams and the education system we have in England, as she's just had her A Levels and for me, GCSEs. … Continue reading Exam Pressures | Collab With Elm
I did a guest post on Ally’s blog: Cute But Awkward, so go check that out as well as the rest of her blog too!
Hey guys, this is a post by Debbie from Brewing Colour. She’s a feminist who contacted me to write a guest post on feminism *obv tho*. But enough talking, Ally! May I present *drumroll please* Debbie!
Like Ally, I’m a feminist, and although I don’t necessarily agree with all of her views, I do agree on how the term has been distorted in modern day society.
Feminism slowly has been equated, by some, to man-hating, women having power over men, et cetera, et cetera, in fact, I know some girls/women who would adamantly refuse that they believe or support any kind of feminist movement. Equality, of course they believe in, but feminism? Not so much.

That time of the year is nearly upon us (at least those who live in London), and that time is YALC: Young Adult Literature Convention, held at London Film and Comic Con, now for the fifth year. I've been a dedicated con-goer (yes, that's now a word) since 2016, when I first learnt about it, … Continue reading YALC: Authors I’m seeing this year and ones from the past
After discussing the best things to do around St.Ives I thought I'd share the best places to eat there. This time was also the third time I've visited the area, so I'd like to think myself to be a veteran in this field. I've also tried to share a range of places to ensure that, … Continue reading 5 Places To Eat In St.Ives
I have recently visited St Ives, a quaint town in Cornwall, for the third time. Although I always try to go to new places, like most people, I seem to find myself exploring the same locations with similar activities. So I've decided to share some of my favourites from the area. 1. Barbara Hepworth Museum … Continue reading 8 Things To Do Around St Ives, Cornwall
