I like nothing better than escaping into a good book. It's my favourite kind of holiday; taking a break from my own life and delving into someone else's, finding solace between pages.
A short-but-sweet poem written especially for World Book Day.
Let's have a look at what kept me going during the long, dark nights of January.
This post is, admittedly, self-indulgent, and is more for me than you. But if you fancy getting some ideas for your own goals, or you feel like being nosey, or even want to hold me accountable, then feel free to read on.
I read some wonderful books last year and thought I would share my favourite reads of 2018.
October was a manic month, with barely any time to write creatively due to plenty of theatre reviews and freelance projects....though I still managed to get a lot done too, somehow!
Having been happily (for the most part) single for the last three years, I am evermore curious about the idea of single life and what it really means. I felt like a parody, picking up Kate Bolick's Spinster: Making a Life of One's Own from the library and tucking it into my over-stuffed backpack.
I spend about 80% of my waking hours thinking about food. The other 20% of my time is actually spent eating the stuff. It was time I started reading about it, too, and Ruby Tandoh's much acclaimed 'Eat Up' seemed like the logical book to take home next.
My latest edition of Monthly Muses is jam packed with articles, shows and creative sources that kept me busy over the last few weeks..
Are Young Adult novels for grownups too? Jandy Nelson's book is sweet, creative and addresses some important issues for young and slightly-less-young alike.
