All views in this post are honest.  Now, who remembers Facemasks? For a few years now, these have been the sort of thing that have been relegated to the past for me, … Continue reading Anatomicals Review.*

Review: Reasons To Stay Alive By Matt Haig. *

Honestly? This was the most searing book I've probably read in a while-up with The Bell Jar, The Book Thief.. I still find myself unable to explain what it's about-in the sense of trying to be sensitive, and not disrespectful. Therefore, I let Amazon do that for me. This is the blurb, taken from the book … Continue reading Review: Reasons To Stay Alive By Matt Haig. *

Review: The Memory Book By Rowan Coleman. *

Rowan. Coleman. I do love her books-the easily understandable books, dealing with intense issues such as Cystic Fibrosis. They're emotionally tense, with utterly relateable characters. For any bookworm, what more could you possibly want? Claire, the mother in the story, is diagnosed with Alzheimer's, at an incredibly young age: maybe forty? And in the prime … Continue reading Review: The Memory Book By Rowan Coleman. *

Caitlin. Moran. Ever heard of her? If you like funny, occasionally sweary feminist writing, added with a thrice weekly column, you love this lady.

My Wild West by Lissie; an album review.*

I adore Lissie-just to finally have a female artist, singing Folk Rock songs, that she writes herself, complete with a husky voice. (This has been since the Back To Forever days-dancing around to Cold Fish or even Shameless.) With regard to all of this, it was thrilling to be sent her new album to review. And it's out today! According … Continue reading My Wild West by Lissie; an album review.*
