Anna and the French Kiss is equal parts cheesy, traditional, unoriginal romantic babble. The average teen love story (minus the Vampires), with kids and problems that are so immanent world peace takes a back seat.
Reasons To Stay Alive by Matt Haig discusses in depth his crippling emotional battle with depression and anxiety/panic disorder. In real candid terms he explains why a disease of the mind left him emotionally, mentally and even physically incapable.
I’ve been blogging for a while now and my biggest struggle has been images. I’m not a photographer, I’m a blogger and a writer. You may have recently noticed that nearly every image on my blog has changed.
All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven – has been compared to The Fault in our Stars by many people. But it is not. This book shows how resilient and fragile teenagers are. A book that seriously addresses: suicide, bipolar and depression. Every page your turn in this book could be a moment of someone’s real life and that is never forgotten throughout. If you are used to Disney endings this is not a book for you.
I have finally done it, my employment status is no longer ‘unemployed graduate, doing voluntary roles,’ it has been updated to: digital editorial assistant. I filled out application 1,004, got an interview and the rest is history. I make it sound easy… it was not. But I have published many posts on graduates looking for jobs. This post marks a new wave of posts coming your way: the graduate experience in the workplace.
Although I don’t have a Netflix account my sister-in-law does. Commence procrastination. Sitting in front of the beautiful TV watching Movies and TV Shows until my hearts content. Netflix side effect number 2: lack of sleep.
This year my goal is certainly to read many book – more than 50 at least. However that is a post for another day. I wanted to take a look back at all the book that I have reviewed on the blog. Some I still love just as much but others I’ve come to doubt my own opinion and I’m not so wooed by then anymore. Time changes preference, so lets take a look.
I recently started watching the TedTalk LifeHack series and although this series contains different episodes there was one which resonated with me greatly. The talk made me feel powerful, inspired and positive about being confident within myself.
Eleanor And Park has been and is still one of the most anticipated reads in the YA world and beyond. I am unsure of what made this book so appealing to everyone else. However, I would praise the authors presentation of her characters. The characterisation in this novel is beyond anything I have read. I would go as far to say that this novel and the characters it represents are better than The Fault in our Stars. Yes – that good.
Matrimony itself has only been a concern of Beyoncé’s music in recent years, especially since her marriage to Jay-Z. Prior to this, romantic afflictions still pervaded her music. Her first solo single, ‘Crazy in Love’ details the singer’s obsession with a male lover, leading her to act uncharacteristically. Both “Baby Boy” and ‘Naughty Girl’ contain similar lyrics and messages. In fact, the first solo album is named ‘Dangerously in Love.’
