  • The Arc of a Scythe series – Book Review

    The first book in the Arc of a Scythe series by Neal Shusterman is called  Scythe. It is a young adult dystopian fantasy, and it is great. Don’t be put off by the young adult category if, like me, you’re not a young adult. This is such a complex, original book, it will hold your […] Read more…

  • The Huntress – Book Review

    Where do I start? This book is amazing. Absolutely stunning.

Pages:  560 Published: Feb 26, 2019 Genre: Historical Fiction Medium I consumed it in: Physical […] Read more…

  • Bookish Journal For 2020

    Hi there! I haven’t done a post like this before. Today I want to share with you the bookish journal that I’ve set up for 2020. It’s absolutely not as pristine or aesthetically pleasing as the vast majority of journals that are shared on blogs! But I thought, seeing how it’s at the stage before […] Read more…

Recipes

  • Nutty slices

    Hello! I got up recently and felt like making something in the kitchen. While I ate breaky, I had a think about what ingredients were in the cupboards and what I could create that was healthy and fast to make. I am currently trying to concentrate on my sugar intake for my health, so that […] Read more…

  • Snack balls

    Snack balls, often called bliss balls, are fairly easy to come by. However, ready-made balls are expensive! Make them at home and you have a simple, comparably affordable, and nutritious snack to keep you going. I have posted two recipes for this type of thing previously, which you can read via these links (date-free balls and […] Read more…

  • P.S. I Love Me

    Today is Valentine’s Day. We know it as a day of love; it’s a day to show you care about a special someone; it’s a day to treat another with chocolate-dipped strawberries, fancy dinners and gooey love letters. But what if we turn it around? What if it doesn’t always have to be about showing […] Read more…
