    16 Thoughts Whilst Reading A Princess in Theory

    I wanted to write more about the books I’ve been reading aside from just writing an indepth book review. I’ve done them in the past, but I don’t think I’m very good at them – I just say I like it or I don’t. I’m a simpleton 😂 I’m always very vocal when I’m reading a book or watching a TV show (except when I’m in public and I have difficulty restraining myself because I just want to shout), so I decided to compile a list of thoughts I had whilst reading this book. Gotta put those thoughts somewhere! Somebody tweeted about A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole and after reading…

    Books That Changed My Life

    I’m planning to write a post about my reading goals for this year. I was inspired by Rezina who managed to read 88 years books in 2017! I did set myself a target of 50 books last year, but I didn’t manage to reach it. This year, however, with the help of Tara and her library of eBooks, I am totally gonna smash my goal. Have you ever read a book and after you read it you felt like your whole life changed? Or you started questioning your existence? Or ultimately just stared into space after reading, wishing that you had the chance to read it all over again for…

    Book Highlights of 2016

    I was inspired by Amy’s post recently on her year in books and thought it’d be a good idea for a post, as well! As an avid reader, I have been slacking these past few years when it comes to reading. When I was younger I used to go through books like water, but these days with work and other social commitments (I’m really just talking Netflix here, btw), I’ve found I don’t read as much.

    In The Spotlight: John Darryl Winston

    It has taken me slightly longer than usual to put this post up, as I have been extremely busy (dealing with rubbish companies and work related stuff), but here is my review of John Darryl Winston’s ‘IA: Initiate‘. I approached John on Twitter back in July when I read the synopsis for his book ‘IA: Initiate‘. It immediately had me hooked and with a male black protagonist, it was definitely different to previous books I had read in the supernatural/thriller genre. IA: Initiate is a supernatural thriller set in the mean streets of America. A seemingly random act of gang violence sends “Naz” Andersen on a quest to find answers surrounding…

    Boxer Handsome

    A book that captures my attention is a book that I will most likely read again and again. Set against the backdrop of East-End London, Anna Whitwham’s debut novel, Boxer Handsome, tells the story of Bobby and Connor. Two boys fighting over a girl. Fiction or non-fiction, it’s always the same with you lads, isn’t it? When I think boxing, I immediately think Manny Pacquiao. Mainly because I’m half Filipino (if you hadn’t already guessed from previous blog posts. I can wax lyrical about the Philippines for days. Weeks. Months, even), and also because his nickname, Pacman, tickles me pink. So, to be introduced to a world of boxing I…
