To Oscar Thank you, so much.
This is a big moment for me. As of now, in this moment, I have decided to enter the 'Booktube-A-Thon' reading marathon. Because I do blog about books, even if I don't make videos, and I feel like I need to properly immerse myself into the Book Community at some point by completing a Readathon.… Continue reading Booktube-A-Thon TBR 2017!
Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson This book was actually a compulsory read for my English course next year, I read it at the end of June, and enjoyed it a lot more than I did the other compulsory texts I was set to read. Oranges is the story of a girl, adopted by… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit
(this is a small promo post for one of my good friends, he's really good at what he does and is working on building his business) Are you a musician? Are you in a band? Do you want to achieve a better, more professional sound for your music? Do you need mixing and mastering services?… Continue reading A Small Promotion…
Alternative name: Ellie really really loves Goodreads and is way too competitive, then proceeds to ramble about Goodreads for an entire blog post to put off the fact that she's had way too many emails from authors in the past two weeks to ever reply, let alone read the books of. Just a small mental… Continue reading Goodreads Rhetoric
My exams are almost over and I can smell summer on the breeze - finally! It must be that time of year when Ellie stays in bed for two solid months! But seriously, it's almost my summer holiday! Meaning I'll have a whole lot more time to update and play around with this blog. I've… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Anna and the French Kiss
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 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. He is the phony to end… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: The Catcher in the Rye
The Color Purple by Alice Walker Corblimey. Before I get into the bulk of this review, I'll be nitpicky and say that I'm having an internal struggle with typing 'colour' as 'color'. I need that 'u' in the word - yes, I know Alice Walker is American, and Americans spell 'colour' like 'color', but I've… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: The Color Purple
The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories by Angela Carter June to me seems to be the month of amazing reads. It's just going from strength to strength here. How have I never read Angela Carter before? 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
