Fever Pitch – Nick Hornby

I’ve just (finally) finished Fever Pitch. Its only 247 pages long and I have been reading it since last Monday. That’s a stupidly long time for a short book like that. I have trouble reading non-fiction, I’m not gunna lie. I often find it boring and just want to escape …

Bad days result in good things

So yesterday I was at work. A woman called about a feature I’d written for the magazine I work at. She spoke to me for a little while then went to read my feature and make sure it was ok.  An hour or so later she called back to speak …

Uglies – Scott Westerfeld

“The old bridge stretched massively across the water, its huge iron frame as black as the sky. It had been built so long ago that it held up its own weight, without any support from hoverstruts. A million years from now, when the rest of the city had crumbled, the bridge would probably …

My Blogger is new…

I started this blogger today in place of my tumblr. My posts below are previous posts from my Tumblr, I copied them over because I am going to delete my tumblr and use this site as my main blog. These posts were all written between September and New Year.

Preludes and Nocturnes – Neil Gaiman

I have just finished reading the first in The Sandman series of Neil Gaiman. I loved it and was actually shocked by the fact that *spoiler alert maybe* Death was a woman in the series. Maybe I’m not as open minded as I thought because I automatically think of death …

One Day – David Nicholls

“He hoped to be successful, to make his parents proud and to sleep with more than one woman at the same time, but how to make these all compatible? … Things should look right. Fun; there should be a lot of fun and no more sadness than absolutely necessary” After …

Christmas books!

I love Christmas, I usually get books or something to do with books. This year I got two books from my boyfriend and a £25 voucher from his mum for Waterstones. These are the books I bought with my voucher and the two that Tony got me. I cant wait to read …

Pretty Things – Sarra Manning

“When I look in the mirror I don’t recognise the girl I see staring back at me with her kiss-swollen lips and the slightly dreamy look in her eyes” I love this book. It’s an amazing story about understanding just who the hell you are. The story follows four very …

The read-look of books

I always think books should look read. I know people who try not to bend the spines of books as they’re reading them and I really don’t understand that! I fold the spine, bend the book, mark the pages, hell if I really love a book it’ll probably have food …

Stravaganva – City Of Masks – Mary Hoffman

“He was in the floating city, he knew that. It was very warm and yet still early in the morning. The beautiful notebook was still in his hand. He put it in his pyjama pocket.”  Stravaganza follows Lucien, a modern day boy, who finds himself in 16th century Talia; Italy unlike any …
