Top TV Shows

Whilst I do love to read, one of my favourite ways to unwind is by binge-watching a good TV show. I’m almost always on the hunt for a new series to dive into and, if you read my Little Things posts, you’ll know I’m always gushing about my latest TV…

March and April Reading Wrap-Up 2019

My reading for 2019 so far has been incredible and the past couple of months have possibly been some of the best ever. In March and April combined I read 19 books, most of which received at least four stars. Maybe I’m too generous with my ratings, maybe I’m just…

Why You Should Make Time for the Things You Love

I can’t tell you how important it is to make time for the things you love and bring you joy. I set aside time to read, cook and exercise regularly because I have seen and felt what it’s like whenever I don’t. If I spend too much time solely focused…

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…
