2020 was a weird year, and it felt like it flew by! Despite how fast it was I managed to read more in the year that shan’t be named than any other year. From young adult fiction, to important non-fiction reads, I read a real mixture this year. In total, I reached 71 books, which is over double the books I read in 2019! So let’s get into the books I read!VIEW POST
With many of us around the world in various lockdowns, I’ve come up with 5 virtual Valentine’s date ideas that you can do with your partner or friends without being in the same place!
Here in the UK it’s pretty certain we’ll still be in a national lockdown by the time February 14th appears. Not only does this mean that traditional Valentine’s dates like dinner at a nice restaurant, or going to the cinema are impossible, but for many of us it means we can’t see our boyfriend/girlfriend/significant other on the day. So for those of you who are in that boat, I’ve got some virtual date ideas that you can use for Valentine’s or even Galentine’s day!VIEW POST
So we’ve finally left 2020, which means it’s time to reflect on my top 10 books from the year. I plan on doing a long post on ALL the books I read last year very soon but in total I read 71! So I’ve managed to whittle the list down to the 10 I enjoyed the most! So if you’re looking for 2021 reading inspiration just keep reading!VIEW POST
Welcome to today’s blog post! Today I’m going to be talking all about my TBR for the Gilmoreathon. The Gilmoreathon is a week-long readathon starting on the 15th of November, inspired by Gilmore Girls. It was created by four booktube creators: Liv, Desi, Mckenzie, and Heather (so make sure you check out their channels once you’ve finished this blog!). As a lover of all things Gilmore Girls I knew I had to participate in this readathon as soon as I saw Desi’s video about it. So I’m going to talk you through what I’m reading for each prompt!VIEW POST
I finished my joint honours undergraduate degree, in English Literature and Philosophy, this summer. So thought I would give you a little insight into what to expect if you’re thinking about a combined honours degree! From the amount of work, to making friends on your courses, down to exactly how it works, I’m going to tell you it all!VIEW POST
One of the main things that is advertised as a perk of university is societies, along with sports clubs (I wasn’t part of any of these, as team and competitive sport really isn’t my thing so this post won’t go into these). However, before you get to uni it can be a little confusing as to what societies are, what they do, how you can get involved, and how they can benefit you. But don’t worry, as a recent graduate who was on the committee of a society for two years, I have all the info you’re going to need!VIEW POST
We’re over a week into October now (I don’t know how that happened) so it’s time for my September reading wrap-up! This month was FAR better than August where I’d had a little reading slump, so get ready for some book reviews!VIEW POST
Getting through your uni reading list can be difficult. I know, I’ve been there. I recently graduated from Cardiff University with a degree in English Literature and Philosophy, so I know a LOT about reading a LOT! When you first get to uni the amount of reading you’re expected to do for your course can seem overwhelming. But I’ve got your back and am going to tell you everything I did to get through my course reading! Make sure you read to the end as I save my top tip for last!VIEW POST
Welcome back, today I’m going to discuss everything I read in June. This month I read 7 books and a total of 2360 pages. Like last month, June has been a bit of a mixed bag in terms of genre, we have some contemporary, some YA, and a biography.
Without me blabbing on any longer, let’s discuss what I read in June!VIEW POST
I’ve just finished my final year at Cardiff University, but what you may not know is I got into Cardiff through UCAS clearing. Having finished my degree I feel I have a good perspective on the clearing process all the way from in the moment on results day, to what it actually means once you’re at university.
My clearing experience on results day was traumatic to say the least. So let’s go back to 2016 and start the story there.VIEW POST
