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.
May was the most manic month of my year so far...and also, somehow, my most successful! Read about the shows, articles and experiences that have been inspiring me recently, and why I'm eating my words when it comes to Netflix.
Better late than never! My favourite's from the manic month of April, including plenty of theatre and a new go-to recipe.
It's one year since I started sharing my Monthly Muses, so I'm celebrating with a bumper post, full of my loves and inspiration from the month of March.
Ice Cream for Breakfast should be read when most needed, and in delicious, bite-sized chunks – just as you would with your favourite tub of Ben and Jerry's.
