Bisexuality and Me – Bi Visibility Day 2020

Happy Bi Visibility Day to my fellow bisexuals and anyone who is questioning whether they might be! I’m very open about my sexuality now and I’ve been wanting to write a post about it for a long time. I debated doing a post about bi representation in books, films and tv, however that’s something for another day. Today I want to talk about my own experience as a bisexual woman: the good, the bad, and the downright ridiculous.

My Views on Book Reviews

Chat HeaderI have felt very inspired to read recently but much less inspired to write and I think this is due to a little creative dip. I can’t really think of different types of posts to write that I am excited about. Of course, book reviews are one of the main types of posts that bloggers upload but I’m really not feeling inspired to write reviews right now, even though I do really want to write about the books I’ve read recently.

How my Self Care Routines have Changed

Chat HeaderI’m sure we are all sick of hearing things along the lines of ‘this is an unprecedented time right now’ but…this is an unprecedented time right now! We have all had to learn to adapt many aspects of our lives, some more than others. Though my life hasn’t changed too drastically, I have struggled a little more recently with self care and just generally spending time to myself. Logically, it seems this would be easier since I can’t go out and see people, however I have found it harder. It helps to get my thoughts down in words often so here’s a little chat about how I have changed and adapted my self care routines. Continue reading “How my Self Care Routines have Changed”

The Fantastic Way Alice Oseman Writes Fandoms

Chat HeaderI have a strange relationship with fandoms and struggle to find words to describe how I feel. The best representation I have ever seen of fandoms is in Alice Oseman’s works, particularly I Was Born For This and Radio Silence. I co-read Radio Silence with a few friends recently and we all decided to write a different post celebrating Alice and her work (which we obviously all love!). I decided I had to write about the portrayal of fandoms – it’s a topic I’m very passionate about and I couldn’t wait to write down my thoughts.

Studytube Appreciation

Chat HeaderOver the past few months, I’ve found myself falling into a new interest in the form of Studytube. I’ve shocked myself as I’ve never been someone who subscribes to YouTubers or even watches them regularly. I watch a few Booktube videos every now and then but I’m not great at keeping up with them and it’s not very often I watch them as they are posted. Finding Studytube has been a slight revelation for me and has inspired me greatly learn new things and discovering new projects to work on. Continue reading “Studytube Appreciation”

My Relationship with Bookstagram

Thoughts HeaderHello lovely people! Today is a very hot day in Manchester (a true rarity) and I’m lucky enough to have a garden so I can sit out in the sun to read and write. We set up an Instagram for our blog around 18 months ago now and I am truly so glad we did. I personally really like Instagram the most out of all the social media platforms out there. I find it to be the most positive, which is heavily down to who you choose to follow, and I enjoy that is is so visual. I’ve been thinking a bit about bookstagram lately and wanted to write my thoughts down. Continue reading “My Relationship with Bookstagram”
