So I finally got round to reading John Green’s new novel, Turtles All the Way Down, and, like every one of his novels (except AAOK, still looking at you!) sped through it. I finished it so fast that I’m really tempted to read it again, and that is something I don’t think I’ve experienced with… Continue reading Turtles All the Way Down
I’ve been away for awhile, I know. I encounter these periods in my life where I have a burst and passion for blogging, and periods where it dwindles and I find myself lacking passion and motivation, as I’m sure everyone else does.

It’s just a constant with me, and there are some times I can deal with it and get by, but right now is not one of those. Things, feelings… Continue reading Health Niggles and Lurking Depression
Pegged as The Sunday Times Best-Selling Psychological Thriller, I was very keen to get into this story. I’m not usually one for crime/mystery thrillers, but it’s something I’ve found myself reaching for recently. I had a slow start I won’t lie, it was difficult for me to get into at first. But, as I got… Continue reading Thoughts on Dear Amy, by Helen Callaghan *no spoilers*
