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.

An Interview With Laure Eve

Interview Header

In February, we had the chance to interview the wonderful Laure Eve, author of The Graces, The Curses, The Illusionists and Fearsome Dreamer. It was a great interview and we had a lot of fun. We mainly asked about her writing process, since creative writing is something me and Sarah are really interested in and do ourselves. It’s always fascinating to hear about different authors’ writing processes and this was another insightful chat!

The Story – Writers Choice or Readers Influence (Blogmas)

Chat Header

Recently, I’ve been attending many book events, writing a lot and having a lot of conversations about books and the choices that authors make vs what the reader truly wants. We all know that an author eventually can sneak in a relationship that everyone has been rooting for, and basically write that fanfic that everyone wants, however, is it really down to the reader to let the author know what they want to read? Or should readers accept stories as they were intended to be written?

Markus Zusak Event (Blogmas)

Event HeaderAt the end of October, me, Sarah and our friend, Louise, got tickets to a talk and signing with Markus Zusak at Waterstones Deansgate in Manchester. I was so excited because I adore The Book Thief and definitely see it as one of my favourite books. After a long 13 year wait (something he kept bringing up himself!) for his next book, it’s finally here! The event and signing was to celebrate his new novel, Bridge of Clay, which I’m currently reading.  Continue reading “Markus Zusak Event (Blogmas)”

Creative Writing Group!

Writing Header

Since October or so, Sarah and I have been going to a creative writing group inManchester. Sarah told me about it and I started to go with her and now we try and go every week or as often as we can. I’ve always wanted to join something like this because it’s fun to meet new people, especially other people who have an interest in something creative! I’ve made new friends there, built my confidence and I always have a wonderful time.

BEDM: A Reader Who Writes

Chat HeaderRecently, I’ve been getting more into writing again. When I was younger, I used to write quite a lot, be that fanfiction, short stories or even just diary entries each day or week. I loved it, especially when I was really in the mood to write and could keep writing for hours at a time. I had a lull in writing the past couple of years but now I’m back at it again!

Thinking About Writing

Writing Header

I spent a lot of time in my teens writing. FanFiction, short stories, poems, anything, i absolutely loved to write. That’s part of the reason that fueled me to study Creative Writing at University. Reading is also a huge part of my life and that is why i made this blog, so i could talk to others about being a reader, current books and what we thought of them. I’m debating expanding a little.
