The more that i’ve been involved in the blogger community and the longer i’ve been doing this, i’ve seen more and more blog discouragement from their owners. It’s gutting sometimes to hear your friends, and some times complete strangers on the internet feel bad about what they’re putting out there. I know i’ve definitely felt like that about my own posts time to time. I wanted to talk a little bit about blog discouragement and how i over came those feelings myself.
I recently made a post about the tropes that i actually really enjoy in books, surprisingly, there are some that i really do enjoy. Tropes are incredibly cliched, and in some ways, every single book has some kind of trope in it.

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
This 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
I’ve been rereading The Perks of Being a Wallflower for this months book club (Thursday 30th May – come along if you wish!) and I’ve been really enjoying reading it for the third time. It’s different reading it now compared to when I first read it in my teens and then later at maybe 20. I’m now 24 and I still really appreciate it a lot. Continue reading
