The Understudy – David Nicholls

OK so a few weeks ago I read Starter For Ten by David Nicholls, not sure now if I blogged about it but my word it was awesome and hilariously funny! having heard already that it was deeply hysterical I also bought The understudy and One Day by the same author. I read SFT …

Watchmen – Alan Moore

Last night I finally finished a book I have wanted to read for years. I kept meaning to buy Watchmen or borrow it from the local library and every time I had money or was near the library I forgot. However my workmate, who seems like a very cool guy as he likes reading and …

Juliet, Naked

Below is my review of Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby. Its a bit rushed but it was posted minutes after I finished reading the book and is a bit more like a discussion than a review. Please feel free to discuss my ideas if you’ve read the book!  Juliet, Naked …
