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.Continue reading “Bisexuality and Me – Bi Visibility Day 2020”
I recently posted about what i’ve been doing while locked down, which basically just told you i’ve been reading a lot and watching Netflix. Which honestly is exactly what everyone else is doing so try not to be surprised. But i wanted to talk to you about what is specifically making me happy at the moment.
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.

Hello 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”
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!

Last night we went to see the Reasons to Stay Alive play at HOME in Manchester. We were aware of this a while back when we saw Matt Haig on his tour of Notes on a Nervous Planet and of course me and Sarah had to book tickets! Read on for a little opinion post about the play.

Every so often, i reflect on my over four years as a book blogger (this is mostly with Sophie and ends with us praising ourselves endlessly), and i like to think about everything we’ve achieved together and some of the most mind-bending stuff that’s actually happened to us.
