The Reviewing Reel: Carrie

Carrie by Stephen King Carrie is Stephen King's debut novel, so I was interested in seeing how his style has changed over his career. I've read Bag of Bones and The Shining, before, and I'm currently struggling through IT, so I'm no stranger to him, either. What immediately struck me about this book was how strange it was set… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Carrie

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 Color Purple

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 Reviewing Reel: The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories

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

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

How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran If you follow my instagram, my twitter or my goodreads (you should do - scroll down to the bottom of the page *wink wink*) or if you've seen my new avatar on here lately, you've probably noticed that I've been reading How to Build a Girl.  Why was I… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: How To Build A Girl

The LGBTQuibble: The Upside of Unrequited

The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli The Upside of Unrequited is the second novel by Becky Albertalli, her first being Simon VS The Homo Sapiens Agenda (that links to my review that I did for that), which is a largely LGBT+ centered story. This is less completely LGBT+ centric, but it's a massive part of the story,… Continue reading The LGBTQuibble: The Upside of Unrequited

The Reviewing Reel: Asking For It

Asking For It by Louise O'Neill (Spoiler Free! - also this book does contain triggers for mental health and rape, so be aware of that before reading this review.) The second book I read in February 2017. And by god... It was good, but not in the conventional sense. It's one of those books that… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Asking For It

The Reviewing Reel – The Best of Adam Sharp

The Best of Adam Sharp by Graeme Simsion - spoiler free! - this book is an ebook ARC from NetGalley I read The Rosie Project not too long ago, which left me incredibly excited for Simsion’s latest novel. I could see parallels to that book in almost every line of the story - Adam’s life… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel – The Best of Adam Sharp

The Reviewing Reel – All The Light We Cannot See

All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr - read for my sixth form's Book Club I read this quickly. Considering it's such a big book, that's a definite achievement. However, the thing about this book is that the chapters are wonderfully short. I had this pointed out to me before I actually read… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel – All The Light We Cannot See
