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 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

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 – 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: Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

No Spoilers! I'm very lucky to be a part of a group that sends advance copies of books you want to read - that is if you email back quickly enough. So, in November 2016, I was sent a copy of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, by Gail Honeyman, which looks really nice from the 'uncorrected proof' copy… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine

The LGBTQuibble: Unboxed

This review will contain spoilers (as usual). This is so much more than just a book about a LGBT+ character, before I even begin to try and review this novel. It's way more than that - it's multi faceted and well written and simply amazing. It's got so many layers to it, but I chose… Continue reading The LGBTQuibble: Unboxed

The Reviewing Reel: Making It Up As I Go Along

I hadn't actually heard of Marian Keyes at all before I walked into Morrisons on that fateful evening, waiting for my train to arrive at the station so I could finally get home, after a very long and very tiring day. I had resolved to buy myself some food, but that went out of the window as… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Making It Up As I Go Along

The Reviewing Reel: Girl Online

Well, this book was... interesting. Let me explain, before people accuse me of 'judging a book by its cover' and 'being unfairly biased against a YouTuber I dislike for no particular reason'. I have no problem with the author herself - who, for those of you who are unaware, is the insanely popular beauty vlogger… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Girl Online
