“Izzy O’Neill is an aspiring comic, an impoverished orphan, and a Slut Extraordinaire. Or at least, that’s what the malicious website flying round the school says. Izzy can try all she wants to laugh it off – after all, her sex life, her terms – but when pictures emerge of her doing the dirty with a politician’s son, her life suddenly becomes the centre of a national scandal. Izzy’s never been ashamed of herself before, and she’s not going to start now. But keeping her head up will take everything she has…”

Hi everyone! Another month, another book nook prompt! I was really excited when I saw this months prompt, props to Abbey and Tabitha for coming up with such a creative prompt. I was assuming it would be something like classics or non-fiction so when I saw this prompt I was pleasantly surprised (although I wouldn’t complain if those two prompts come up).

“Meet Eleanor Oliphant: She struggles with appropriate social skills and tends to say exactly what she’s thinking. Nothing is missing in her carefully timetabled life of avoiding social interactions, where weekends are punctuated by frozen pizza, vodka, and phone chats with Mummy. All this means that Eleanor has become a creature of habit (to say the least) and a bit of a loner. Continue reading “Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine by Gail Honeyman”

Hi everyone! So I won’t lie, I have been meaning to publish this post for probably two months and just haven’t gotten around to it. However here it is! I have been watching soo many Disneyland Paris/ Disney World vlogs over the last few months that I have been desperately wanting to plan my own trip but due to my current financial situation I will just have to plan a hypothetical trip.

“Ruth Jefferson is a labor and delivery nurse at a Connecticut hospital with more than twenty years’ experience. During her shift, Ruth begins a routine checkup on a newborn, only to be told a few minutes later that she’s been reassigned to another patient. The parents are white supremacists and don’t want Ruth, who is African American, to touch their child. The hospital complies with their request, but the next day, the baby goes into cardiac distress while Ruth is alone in the nursery. Does she obey orders or does she intervene?

Hi everyone! So I’ve never been one to take a lot of interest in new releases. I often notice them but I don’t always think about the new releases that I have to read as soon as they come out. I’m the type of person who ends up becoming obsessed with a book that was released five years ago, it is quite rare I read a book as soon as it comes out.

“Sarah is doing just fine. Sure she’s been single for the last five years, and has to spend an uncomfortable amount of time around her ex-boyfriend, his perfect new girlfriend and all their mutual friends. And yes, her job as a PA to one of the most disgusting men in London is mind-numbingly tedious and her career is a constant disappointment to her mother. But it’s really okay. She’s happy (ish).

Hi everyone! So I am already five books in to my challenge of 25 this year and the fifth book I read was for this month’s book nook. For this month’s prompt, Abbey and Tabitha came up with doing a book swap in order to share our love of books. I rarely swap books with anyone so I was really excited for this prospect and what a better time to share the love of books than the month of valentines day!

Hi everyone! So I was just writing another book related post and it occurred to me that I haven’t reviewed as many books as I would have liked on this blog. I also realised that a lot of the books I have loved I reviewed on my old blog. I have contemplated sharing those reviews on here but I thought that would be slightly tedious and my reviewing style has changed since then. So I thought I would write a post compiling short reviews of some of the books I reviewed on my old blog.
