Mini Reviews: The Flatshare and My Lovely Wife

I guess you could say love comes in all different shapes and sizes. I’m not one for cheesy romance novels; characters falling in love within five minutes of knowing each other, the will-they-won’t-they tension and superficial relationships. Alternatively, the premises of both ‘The Flatshare’ and ‘My Lovely Wife’ are (wonderfully)…

My Productive Weekend Morning Routine

Call me crazy, but I love nothing more than waking up early. Weekend or not, I prefer slow mornings in which I can give myself the time to get ready for the day ahead while feeling calm and level-headed. My working weekday morning routines aren’t too different; simply a condensed…

January Reading Wrap-up 2019

I wanted to start my first wrap-up of the year by sharing some of my reading goals. I mentioned in my 2019 Intentions post how this year I’m aiming to read 60 books. Counting towards this total will hopefully be some classic literature.

Why I Write

Ever since I could spell my name I’ve loved to write. I’d write stories set in whimsical lands, vignettes about character’s adventures, magazines made from flimsy folded A4 paper, you name it. A stash of notebooks mounted, most left unfinished as my mind wondered into another creative realm. My chaotic…

Mini Reviews: Thrills, Tension and Trust

Thrillers, psychological fiction, suspense stories – there’s something about mind games, unreliable narrators and devious characters that makes me gravitate towards this genre. I love a novel which can challenge my expectations. A novel I can’t put down until I’ve unveiled the unknown. Each of the three books featured in…
