    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…

    Inspire Me Korea | Part 1

    안녕! I hope everyone is well 🙂 I’m really excited about this post because I actually decided to shoot a vlog for it. I haven’t done a vlog in ages – as in speaking in front of a camera – so, I thought I’d do a review of one of the Inspire Me Korea boxes I received.  I just need everyone to know that I freaking LOVE Inspire Me Korea. I’ve had two boxes, so far, and I’ve loved all the things that I received in them. Choco-pie’s are my jam 😉 Inspire Me Korea: • Website: http://www.inspiremekorea.com/ • Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/inspiremekorea • Twitter: https://twitter.com/inspiremekorea • Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/inspiremeko… Subscribe to Inspire…

    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…

    #July4thWithThree

    Living in the UK, July 4th isn’t something that I would usually celebrate. In fact, I’ve never celebrated it. When I received an email being invited to a July 4th party hosted by Three, the network service provider, I was intrigued. With the promise of a free bar, American BBQ and snacks, and a selfie booth, my boyf and I made our way to Bethnal Green to party like it was 1776. (Geddit?  :> ) We were one the first few people to arrive, and we were greeted by the lovely Elly who quickly explained all the fun things we would be doing throughout the evening, and I was given the handset I would be…

    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…
