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
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
I received a box from Letterbox Gift as a 21st birthday present. I’ve been meaning to write this post for WEEKS now! But here we finally are, I’m here and I’m writing it.
As you’ll be able to tell from the title, today I am going to do a review of letterboxgifts.co.uk. My mum sent me ‘The Pamper Box’ for my 21st birthday and it was definitely one of my favourite presents! There’s just something about receiving unexpected parcels through the post isn’t there?! The parcel actually arrived a couple of days before my birthday and I could tell that it was something exciting just from how good it smelt! (I did however manage to wait until my actual birthday to open it!)VIEW POST
