I 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.

Never 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!

It’s nice to reach the end of the year and try and focus on the positives as much as possible. I always love looking back at books I’ve read, films and TV shows I’ve watched and new hobbies/interests I may have picked up. It’s always really fun to remember what new things you’ve discovered and connected with throughout the year!
Last year i was an extremely bad blogger and missed out on the whole ‘my favourite books of the year’ in December thing. It’s something that i still think about missing a lot, so i wanted to make sure that i did on this year to share the best books that i read in 2018.
One of mine and Sophie’s reading resolutions for this year was to read someone else’s favourite book. I think we’ve both taken this resolution a little further than we intended and have decided to read a lot of people’s favourite books this year.
For a while now, I’ve wanted to talk about my favourite books and how much I love them and what it is that I love about them. I’m always really interested in other people’s favourite books and one of the best things is when someone is passionate about something! I’ve decided to choose half of my favourites for this post as I’d like to write about some of my others at a different time in more detail. Continue reading “BEDM: My Favourite Books (and why!)”
Every reader has those trashy books that they are complete trash for (could there have been a more ‘internet’ sentence ever spoken?) I’m one of those people who gets really in to books, and adore every single little bit of them. I’m also one of those people where these books are usually completely awful. They usually have bad characters or story-lines or are just a bit dry in general. However i always go away absolutely loving them. The ‘urban-dictionary’ meaning for ‘Trash’ is something that you base your existence on, more than just a fan of that thing. So here are some of the books that i have gladly given my soul and all of my money too.
