My Changing Taste in Books

chatRecently I’ve been reading quite different books to what I usually pick up. The last few years I’ve mostly read contemporary YA fiction novels but so far this year I’ve been diving into adult and non-fiction books as well as stories set a few decades ago as opposed to recent years. I’m enjoying it very much and I’m loving reading a variety of books! One of my intentions this year was to read whatever I want and jump out of my usual habits and I’m so glad I have.

New Year Book Tag (Sophie)

Look, before you say anything, I know this is mega late. Sarah posted hers a few weeks ago and tagged me and I also wanted to join the hype because I love a good tag!

I have a few intentions which I’m working towards but mostly I’m just going to read what I want to read. Read on to find out more!

I was lucky enough to be gifted this book – read on for details and all of my thoughts! Continue reading

Podcast Series: Best Girl Grip

Over the past year I’ve gotten really into podcasts, something I never thought I’d be a fan of but I’ve found quite a few that I love. I’ve uploaded a few posts about these and will continue to upload many more as I’m always finding new ones to enjoy and that I want to shout about. A few months ago, I came across a brilliant podcast named Best Girl Grip focused on women working in the British film industry which is something I’m just starting out in! Continue reading

LGBTQ+ Book Club – October 2019

image1First off, apologies for this being over a week later than normal! To be honest, it’s probably only been me bothered by this but even so! In October we read Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand which is the first horror we’ve read at book club. It’s a YA horror with multiple LGBTQ+ representations and it felt quite different in many ways to anything we have read before, and anything I’ve read personally to be honest.  Continue reading
