Sunday Catch Up #9

Afternoon! We've just got back from a 14km walk... My little legs are so sore! But it was a really lovely walk and we had so much fun. Now, I'm going to cook a cracking roast and devour that, whilst we watch Captain America: Civil War, in preparation for the new Avengers film. Eeeek! Before… Continue reading Sunday Catch Up #9


‘Everless’ by Sara Holland – Book Review

4/5 Stars A strange feeling flowers in me, like I’m standing at the edge of a cliff, looking out to the green-and-blue sea, which I’ve only ever seen drawn in books, its waves sloshing and beautiful and endless – and from this height, deadly.” I feel a bit bad for this book, if it's even… Continue reading ‘Everless’ by Sara Holland – Book Review

Sunday Catch Up #7

What a week! I feel like having a four day week after a long weekend makes the week so much more exhausting! I've been knackered these last few days and whilst I admit this could be period related, I'm also adamant it's because of the four day week... And still recovering from the clocks going… Continue reading Sunday Catch Up #7


‘The Cruel Prince’ by Holly Black – Book Review

5/5 Stars “I want power so badly. And this is an opportunity for it, a terrifying and slightly insulting opportunity. But also an intriguing one. Would I have made a good knight? I have no way of knowing.” I Loved. This. Book. I read it in six hours. I read it like a woman on… Continue reading ‘The Cruel Prince’ by Holly Black – Book Review

‘Eat Up’ by Ruby Tandoh – Book Review

5/5 Stars "I have a body, and it exists in a fragile world, and I choose to relish it." This book should be on every school syllabus. This book should be read by anyone and everyone.
