JoJo Moyes – Me Before You

So I did something that I said I’d never do, I spent £5 on a kindle book, when I could have probably bought the paperback for less at the supermarket! But in my defence, I had been stuck in hospital… Continue Reading →

Maria V. Snyder – Magic Study

So while I was reading this book, I kinda broke my blog a little bit, so I haven’t been able to post this review, even though it’s been well over a month since I read it. So I do apologise… Continue Reading →

Maria V. Snyder – Poison Study

If you’re following my reviews, you’ll have probably noticed that I haven’t read very much this year, I just haven’t found myself wanting to pick up a book and read very much. But if I needed a book to renew… Continue Reading →

Kody Keplinger – The DUFF

I’ve had this book for ages and it’s been in my suitcase on at least 3 holidays, but I never actually got around to reading it. I guess I was a bit scared that it would be a bit too… Continue Reading →

Rowan Williams – Being Christian

It seems like a long time since I read this book now, I’ve been really busy with work and not had time to come on here and update my blog. Since January, I have been attending classes at the vicarage… Continue Reading →

Jesse Andrews – Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

I really wanted to love this book as I’ve had it on my shelf for about 3 months waiting to be read. But I just couldn’t love it. I think the book suffered due to the obvious comparisons I was… Continue Reading →

Mike Erre – The Jesus of Suburbia

I feel quite conflicted about this book. For around 80%, I would say I sat reading and nodding in agreement, occasionally reading the same passage over and over again as it just felt so spot on that it was like… Continue Reading →

Nicky Gumbel – The Jesus Lifestyle

After finishing the Alpha course before Christmas, I was definitely ready to dive in deeper. As well as signing up for classes to prepare for Confirmation in March (exciting!), I decided to buy a few books to learn more. The… Continue Reading →

Review: Claire Fuller – Our Endless Numbered Days

Cameron’s mum gave me book tokens for Christmas so I could buy books without Cameron shouting at me (she gets me), so I took myself on a trip to WH Smiths and Waterstones and came back with a few books,… Continue Reading →

Review: P. L. Travers – Mary Poppins

I had obviously known that Mary Poppins was based on a book, but I’d never even thought to read it. I don’t know why, but it was on sale at Asda, along with Annie (which I hadn’t known was based… Continue Reading →

I Heart Fitbit! ♥

I’ve absolutely loved my Fitbit this year. I joined the gym in March, started going in earnest with my best friend in May and it was great for tracking the calories I was burning. Until my world was turned upside… Continue Reading →

Books for 2016

As I said before, one of my resolutions for 2016 is to read more books, although I should have been more specific as it should really be to read more books from my shelves and buy less new books. To… Continue Reading →

Happy New Year!

As it’s New Year’s Eve and as I’ve still got the flu that I’ve had since Christmas, I’ve not got much better to do than to sit down and get back to my blog, which seems to have been sorely neglected this… Continue Reading →

Review: Carole Matthews – The Chocolate Lovers’ Christmas

Silly me didn’t realise when I bought this book that it was book 3 in a series, I was just at the supermarket and wanted to get some Christmassy books to get me in the festive spirit. So my review… Continue Reading →

Review: Robin Hobb – Assassin’s Apprentice

I received this book as a free book from Kindle about a year ago, and it’s taken me this long to get around to reading it. I must admit that it took me a long time to warm to the… Continue Reading →

Review: C.S. Lewis – The Screwtape Letters

For the last 12 weeks, I’ve been doing the Alpha Course at Pudsey Parish Church (it finished last night – boooo!). There’s a really interesting group of people on my table, including a lovely lady called Eunice who recommended the… Continue Reading →

Review: Adrian Plass – The Growing Up Pains of Adrian Plass

For the last couple of months, Cameron and I have been going to the Alpha Course at Church. It’s been really interesting to learn more about Christianity, and it’s been made even better by having such a good group of… Continue Reading →

Prayers for Peace (and a bit of a rant)

After the horrific attacks in Paris last week, it seems like most of the world has reacted with compassion towards the victims and their families, as well as towards those involved in the emergency response to the incidents. However, some… Continue Reading →

Review: Brandon Sanderson – Steelheart

A week ago, I was stood in Waterstones torn between buying the two Stormlight Archive books, or whether to buy this. In the end, I settled on buying this and the first of the Stormlight books, mainly because the Stormlights… Continue Reading →

Alpha Course!

My church is running the Alpha Course, starting a week on Wednesday (30th September). I’ve looked into it a few times in the past, so I’m excited to finally be giving it a go! There’s already 72 people signed up… Continue Reading →

Review: Lena Dunham – Not That Kind of Girl

I came into this book with high hopes for a biography of an intriguing woman. I was given a Girls Series 1 & 2 boxset for Christmas this year and I remember quite liking it, although it occurs to me… Continue Reading →
