Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

Review HeaderNever Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro has been one of my favourite books for many years now – the film is also a favourite of mine! It’s a story I think about fairly often and the three main characters have stayed with me, always feeling very real and unforgettable. I recently reread the book which I think is the third time I have read it now and wanted to give a review as I don’t think I have ever reviewed this novel before!

Changing Reading Routines

Chat HeaderBefore lockdown, I had quite specific times that I read and it often wasn’t whilst I was at home. I had gotten into the habit of reading on my commute to and from work (or most times I used public transport), reading in cafes with friends and attempting to read before bed but this rarely ever happened. Lockdown has changed this quite a lot as the only place I can now read is at home! I always had a weird relationship with the word ‘productivity’ and what it means and I’ve had to again deal with it as I felt guilty reading at home – read on to see how I’ve adapted my reading routines!

My Favourite Places to Read

Chat HeaderWith everything going on at the minute, I’ve found myself picking up on things I’ve been missing recently, one of which is a simple luxury of reading in different places! I thought I’d write a post about my favourite little spots to read, both very specific places and more general. I’ve always been someone who likes to change up their setting a lot (at university, I used to jump between studying in my bedroom, my friend’s room, our kitchen and the uni library) and lockdown has made me even more aware of this.

My Favorite Murder Book Tag

MFM Book Tag

Hi everyone, it’s Lois from Lois Reads Books and I am here today on The Little Contemporary Corner with a book tag! Sophie and I both love the podcast My Favorite Murder and recently read the memior that the creators of the podcast wrote together and we loved it. So, we thought what better way to show our love for the podcast and the book by creating a My Favorite Murder book tag! Sophie and I spent a long time thinking of questions and then designing little headers for the question. I did the designing and Sophie did the thinking that’s really how it went down. If you love the podcast, are completely new to the podcast or just want a book tag to join in with, please feel free! Just tag us so that we can see your answers, we’d love to see other people doing this! Sophie will be doing this tag over on Lois Reads Books, so be sure to head over there and check it out!

So, without further ado, here is the My Favorite Murder Book Tag! Continue reading “My Favorite Murder Book Tag”
