I was recently gifted an early copy of Juno Dawson’s latest book, Wonderland, a fantastically extravagant take on Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I was so excited to read this book as I adored her book Clean and think Juno is a wonderful human being. Tomorrow is the UK publication day for Wonderland so you can easily get your hands on it!

I’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 two of us at The Little Contemporary Corner have recently watched a BBC Two series called Trigonometry and we absolutely adore it. It’s a fantastic show focusing on three people who develop a deep connection and fall in love with each other, depicting a positive and diverse representation of polyamory. We don’t normally write about TV shows but we both love it so much we had to write about it! Continue reading “Trigonometry BBC Two Review”

Last week, I ordered myself a Nintendo Switch with the game Animal Crossing New Horizons and of course I love it! I knew I would since I played Animal Crossing Wild World when I was much younger and adored it. I saw a few people posting this tag on Twitter in the last few weeks and decided to seek it out and give it a go myself! I love book tags and Animal Crossing so what could be better?
This tag was created by Angharad and Becky at Two Book Thieves. You can find the original post with their answers here. Continue reading “Animal Crossing New Horizons Book Tag”
I have had the basics of this post drafted for longer than I care to admit but it’s something I have wanted to do for so long! Sometimes when I’m reading a book, I get vibes of a certain Hogwarts House from it. It could be the atmosphere, the characters, the themes – honestly anything! I’ve see quite a lot of these posts/videos in the past and they always interest me as I love seeing what houses people put books in and for what reasons. Today I’m focusing on Slytherin – read on to check the books I think have Slytherin vibes! Continue reading “Slytherin House Book Recs”
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.
