Welcome to another book review, friends. I've been on a serious J-lit (Japanese literature - learnt that was an actual abbreviation recently) kick ever since reading Tokyo Ueno Station a couple of months back, and I won't lie to you: I've no intention of stopping any time soon. I haven't quite cracked what it is [...]
Ghosts and ghouls, witches and warlocks, monsters and mythological beings, and yes - even you, the one at the back who stumbled in here because they took a wrong turn. Take off your shoes, get comfy. Grab a blanket. Halloween has come and gone, but some of us (myself included) aren't quite ready to let [...]
I do love when the world conspires in my favour. I mean, it doesn't happen as often as I'd like, but that's not the point. A few weeks ago I booked a train down to London to see my baby brother (FYI: a fully grown man at this point, but forever baby brother) and what [...]
It feels appropriate and a little serendipitous that I should 'celebrate' my subtle rebranding of this blog with this: The Testaments by Margaret Atwood.
So here's the thing. A few years ago - a fair few more than I'd care to admit right now - I learnt about Books Are My Bag thanks to boss booktuber Leena Norms. This year, I can finally participate. I'm excited. And I want you to get excited too, so here's a quick overview of it all.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, I'd apologise for the radio silence over the last few months but that'd mean apologising for dealing with life itself. Besides, it feels a little presumptuous to apologise as though people were waiting for me to post something here. So let's skip the pleasantries and get right into it, shall we? [...]
If you know me, you'll know that I have something of an addiction to books. I own roughly 350 books spread across 4 bookshelves around my house, and I have absolutely no intention of stopping until I get my own Beauty and the Beast style library. Am I asking for too much? Possibly. Will I give [...]
As a self-confessed book-hoarder, bookworm, and bibliophile, having an out-of-control list of books I want to read is a part of the job. Another thing we book-fiends revel in is talking, writing, and gushing about books until we hear the gentle click of the kettle as it comes to a boil. Enough chit chat - on to [...]
Welcome to the first post of 2018, ladies and gents! We're a little too late in the month to talk about such things as New Year's Resolutions (I'd probably say something generic like 'eat more fruit' and 'spend more time switching off from the online world', you get the gist of things), so I thought [...]
As I type this out on the fly in my favourite coffee shop, I'm on day three of teetering on the edge of a cliff. Fall off that precarious ledge, ladies and gentlemen, and we plummet headfirst into that oh-so-annoying thing called an anxiety spiral.
