What I’ve been reading: December

Christmas and New Year are done and dusted for another 365 days and now we’re left to face that old “new year, new me” chestnut. In a weird, twisted, roundabout way the book I chose for December is actually pretty apt. As apt as a narrative spoken by an unborn child with the intelligence and…

What I’ve been reading: November

So, it’s November and once again, I’ve found myself at the end of a highly unproductive month where blogging is concerned. I did manage to pick up one book this month, out of the many that are waiting to be read. As it turns out, I picked a pretty complex one at a time when…

Why reading is actually the best

  As an English Literature graduate and avid bookworm, I’ve read my fair share of books and during my degree alone I ended up reading a pretty varied mix; everything from Shakespeare to Roth all piled into a few years. Over the years, I’ve read a load of genres and forms and I feel like I got up…
