The Reviewing Reel: What’s A Girl Gotta Do?

What's a Girl Gotta Do? by Holly Bourne I LOVED THIS SO MUCH. I did buy this almost an entire year ago, and it's been over a year since I read How Hard Can Love Be?, but it didn't stop me thoroughly enjoying this. Just... Yesssssss, Lottie. Yessss. She is every cool feminist at my sixth form,… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: What’s A Girl Gotta Do?

The Reviewing Reel: The Catcher in the Rye

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger Hold on! (Hah hah... Get it?) But seriously. Hold on. This is about to get good. Holden Caulfield is probably one of the most quintessential unreliable narrators of all time, along with Humbert Humber from Lolita and the omnipresent overhead voice from the Harry Potter series.

How? I kept seeing her books everywhere, but I never picked them up or gave them much thought. However...… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories

The Reviewing Reel: Pygmalion

Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw What a book. What a play. What an everything. I will be honest when I say that I love musicals. I'm not just saying that to sound cool, I genuinely love musicals. So much that I sometimes think that I was born to be a Broadway star, I wasn't. I… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Pygmalion

Studying English Literature at A-Level

Hi! So, basically, I got this idea from the wonderfully amazing BookTuber/book blogger LucyTheReader, who recently made a video on her experiences with studying English Literature at A-Level, the set texts that she's studying and how she's getting on with them all. I guess this is kind of a response to that, in a way. I… Continue reading Studying English Literature at A-Level
