Why Films Can Be As Good As (Or Better) Than Books

chatI feel like there is often quite a bit of snobbery surrounding adaptations. There’s a constant thought of the book always being better than the film, often said before the film has even been released. I’ve felt like this for a long, long time and many aspects of the idea annoy me a bit! I decided to write this post after watching Charlotte’s (WonderfullyBookish) video on unpopular opinions and this came up as one. Continue reading

LGBTQ+ Book Club – The Perks of Being a Wallflower

BOOThis month we read The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. It’s one of mine and Sarah’s favourite books and I feel like a lot of our friendship has ties to it. We have both read it more than once before we chose it for Book Club but had never read it to focus on the aspects of sexuality specifically.

Struggling with New Releases (BEDM)

chat

Hello! Uploaded this a little later than planned but hey – read it before bed if you fancy it. This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot recently since there are a lot of highly anticipated new releases out already or coming out soon. I’m not very up to date with new books – I rarely read them til months later at minimum! However, I’m trying to change this a little. Continue reading

London Weekend & Waitress Musical! (BEDM)

chatThis weekend, I went to London with my girlfriend to see the musical, Waitress, which I’ve wanted to see for a good few months. The soundtrack is one of my favourites and I couldn’t wait to see the story and songs performed. I also visited the Natural History Museum for the first time which was fab and stayed at a wonderful Airbnb! Thought I’d do a little wrap up of my trip including a couple of little bookish things I did! Continue reading

Dumplin’ Film Chat (BEDM)

Now, I haven’t actually read Dumplin’ but I watched the film on Netflix the other day and I absolutely loved it. A lot of people have recommended me both the book and the film adaptation but I just never fully fancied it. I wasn’t sure if I’d be a fan. However, I’m now right on the hype (better late than never). Continue reading

Where to Buy Books debate (BEDM)

chatThis is a topic I have spoken to quite a few people about recently and I feel there is quite a bit of judgement from some of the bookish community. Where you buy your books is a debate which has a lot of value. After all, it is important to know if the author and publisher is receiving the money for what they have done. However, I am not okay with people negatively judging people for buying books cheap! This is a slight rant to be honest!  Continue reading

To Be Read or not To Be Read… (BEDM)

chatTBR piles are both a book blogger’s best friend and worst nightmare. Some people love having a TBR pile, some hate it and sometimes it just depends. I definitely fall into the just depends category as sometimes I love the structure of having a TBR for the near future but other times I feel constricted by it. Continue reading
