The Reviewing Reel: The Catcher in the Rye

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger Hold on! (Hah hah... Get it?) But seriously. Hold on. This is about to get good. Holden Caulfield is probably one of the most quintessential unreliable narrators of all time, along with Humbert Humber from Lolita and the omnipresent overhead voice from the Harry Potter series. He is the phony to end… Continue reading The Reviewing Reel: The Catcher in the Rye

Birthday & March Book Haul 2017!

The month of March was a pretty hectic month for me - I turned seventeen (which means I can now legally learn to drive in the UK, which is where I live...), I've started having to think properly about my AS level exams and I have also bought a lot of books.

And I got two more literally the day after… Continue reading I’ve Got 99 Problems And Books Are Almost All Of Them (But I’m Only Listing Seven So You Don’t Hate Me)

Book Haul – Christmas 2016 Edition

American Gods by Neil Gaiman (Hardback)    This was from the British Library in London - I'm a massive fan of Neil Gaiman so I asked my grandparents if I could have it from them as my Christmas present. It's so beautiful, there are a whole bunch of illustrated Neil Gaiman stories on offer and I'm… Continue reading Book Haul – Christmas 2016 Edition

My Autumn In Books

The Road To Little Dribbling: Adventures of an American In Britain by Bill Bryson This book was a loan from my grandparents - one I have yet to return to them (oops), and it took me a long, long time to read. According to my Goodreads, it took me over a month from start to… Continue reading My Autumn In Books

How do you find time to read so much? I spend less time than I should on my college homework, I take my books downstairs and read whilst I'm eating lunch. I pull them out of my bag and read them on trains to and from sixth form, I procrastinate on my assignments in favour… Continue reading To Books
