Entangled – Cat Clarke

“I met Ethan the night I was planning to kill myself. Pretty Inconvenient, when you think about it. The same questions whirl round and round in my head: What does he want from me?  How could I let this happen?  AM I GOING TO DIE? (thats my particular favourite.) This isn’t …

British Book Challenge

I heard about the Bookette’s British Book Challenge (BBC hehe) on Monday, having only seen her blog recently and not noticing the icon at the side of it! I was gutted when I realised, on Tuesday, that the challenge sign up was meant to be over.However, earlier today on twitter she …

Dear Mr Potter

I wont be posting or reading much this week. I am working on an amazing project that I found through tumblr called Dear Mr Potter.Dear Mr Potter is a project that a girl named Lily started, she asked people to send letters addressed to Mr Potter explaining how he changed …

In My Mailbox

This is my first “In My Mailbox” I have cheated slightly as it includes books I picked up last Sunday which, if I was a weekly IMM-er I would have included last week but I hope it doesn’t matter too much! In my mailbox is a meme hosted by The Story Siren …

The Hunger Games (#1) – Suzanne Collins

May contain slight spoilers. I’d read a lot about how awesome The Hunger Games was before I got round to reading it myself. I had however tried to keep away from knowing exactly what the book was about as I wanted the book to keep me on my toes and …

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 …
