The Reviewing Reel: Juliet, Naked

Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby I've reviewed at least one other book by Nick Hornby on here (see: Funny Girl) and I've also read a few others of his books - so I can safely say that he's quickly becoming one of my favourite go-to 'I can't be bothered to read anything else right now'… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Juliet, Naked

The Reviewing Reel: Carrie

Carrie by Stephen King Carrie is Stephen King's debut novel, so I was interested in seeing how his style has changed over his career. I've read Bag of Bones and The Shining, before, and I'm currently struggling through IT, so I'm no stranger to him, either. What immediately struck me about this book was how strange it was set… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Carrie

The Reviewing Reel: What’s A Girl Gotta Do?

What's a Girl Gotta Do? by Holly Bourne I LOVED THIS SO MUCH. I did buy this almost an entire year ago, and it's been over a year since I read How Hard Can Love Be?, but it didn't stop me thoroughly enjoying this. Just... Yesssssss, Lottie. Yessss. She is every cool feminist at my sixth form,… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: What’s A Girl Gotta Do?

The Reviewing Reel: The Color Purple

The Color Purple by Alice Walker Corblimey. Before I get into the bulk of this review, I'll be nitpicky and say that I'm having an internal struggle with typing 'colour' as 'color'. I need that 'u' in the word - yes, I know Alice Walker is American, and Americans spell 'colour' like 'color', but I've… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: The Color Purple

The Reviewing Reel: The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories

The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories by Angela Carter June to me seems to be the month of amazing reads. It's just going from strength to strength here. How have I never read Angela Carter before? How? I kept seeing her books everywhere, but I never picked them up or gave them much thought. However...… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories

The Reviewing Reel: Pygmalion

Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw What a book. What a play. What an everything. I will be honest when I say that I love musicals. I'm not just saying that to sound cool, I genuinely love musicals. So much that I sometimes think that I was born to be a Broadway star, I wasn't. I… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Pygmalion

The Reviewing Reel: Fever

Fever by Dee Schulman - I own this book in paperback I fucking despised this book. And I'm not afraid to say it. This book was a pile of fucking shite. I got it back when it was first released, in 2012, as part of a magazine subscription I had to Puffin Books (which was ace, by the… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: Fever

The LGBTQuibble 

I've decided to attempt a challenge, of sorts, that I've set myself. The challenge is to review one LGBT+ book (fiction or non fiction) every week. That's on top of the book reviews I do for websites, and anything else that I might choose to post (such as regular book reviews, tutorials on how to… Continue reading The LGBTQuibble
