Tuesday Review (Spoiler Free) – Endgame (2019)

 Let me tell you a story about social media: it sucks. Last year, before I’d managed to see Infinity War a person I used to follow on Instagram gave out a massive spoiler to the film. It was a girl who thought she was being really discrete. She said something like, “I don’t want to spoil […]

For those that missed it, I’ll just recap what the whole thing is about. Creatively Squared is a website that brings together content creators and brands. The platform has a database of different […]

Sunday Rundown: That’s What She Read

How has your week been? What have you been reading? Big weekend this weekend. Endgame weekend. I had to wait until Saturday morning to see it but I managed to avoid spoilers. I’m going to be dedicating this week to the film. My Tuesday review will be spoiler free but, instead of a TBT post, I’ll do […]

Throwback Thursday – The Excalibur Kid (1988)

 When I was planning which film I was going to watch for this week’s TBT post, I decided to do something related to King Arthur. Although, my initial thought was just to review The Man Who Would Be King but I decided, as awesome as it would be to have an excuse to watch it, it […]

Book Review – My Purple Scented Novel by Ian McEwan

When I was younger, I was a huge Ian McEwan fan. I first read Enduring Love and I adored it. He had such a way about his writing that I wanted to read everything else I could get my hands on. His short stories were creative and experimental. His novels got to the heart of their […]

Tuesday Review – The Kid Who Would Be King (2019)

 I don’t know who is in charge of creating the trailers for Joe Cornish’s films but he needs to have a quiet word. The first time I saw the Attack the Block trailer I absolutely hated it but, as a long-time lover of Adam and Joe, I wanted to give it a chance. The film was certainly […]

Creatively Content: One Amateur Instagrammer’s Experiments With Photography

For just over a year now, I’ve been fairly consistently creating photos for the weekly challenges set by Creatively Squared. At its heart, Creatively Squared is a website that brings together content creators and brands. The platform has a database of different creators and will match each brand with the most suitable people for their […]

Sunday Rundown: That’s What She Read

How has your week been? What have you been reading? Happy Easter to you all. I’ve had a wonderful weekend so far. Good Friday was spent doing nothing. Yesterday I went on a walk with my sister so my legs are agony today. Tonight I met a friend for a wonderful drink. And, magically, I […]

Book Review – Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

  So, on Wednesday I promised that I’d get my review of Daisy Jones & The Six written up today. I had the day off so I could have done it at any time. When am I writing this? Just before bed time. I just got so carried away with my bank holiday vibes today and […]

Throwback Thursday – Hellboy (2004)

 As you already know, I’ve been trying to get ahead with posts. Tonight I went out for dinner for a friend’s birthday. Tomorrow night I’m going to see Adore Delano after work. I came home already to get an early-ish night feeling quite smug when I remembered. I needed to write this TBT post. I’m […]

Bookish Post – I’m Stark raving mad for Sansa

So, once again I’m having to put off my book review until Friday. At this rate, I might as well just do two bookish posts a week. Especially now I have weekends off. I’ve been thinking about it for a while. It means I can do at least one review a week (if I can […]

Tuesday Review – Hellboy (2019)

 Is there something of an Arthurian revival going on at the moment. In the last couple of weeks, I’ve watched two films that involve the legend of King Arthur. Last week I finally managed to see The Boy Who Would Be King and now we have Hellboy fighting a foe who was almost vanquished by the legendary King. […]

Sunday Rundown: That’s What She Read

How has your week been? What have you been reading? Another good week at work this week. I feel like I’m getting more comfortable with the job. Although, I still feel like I don’t know anyone. I just never really see people. I should probably make more of an effort to introduce myself to people […]

Alexis Marie Chute Expecting Sunshine Cover Reveal Game

Back in 2018 I was approached by author Alexis Marie Chute to help in the cover reveal of her first novel Above the Star. I thought the book sounded right up my street so I jumped at the chance to help. When I got my chance to read the book I wasn’t disappointed. It was an […]

TBT – Carnage (2011)

 I’ve been listening to a lot of Podcasts at work lately but I don’t like to listen to the grown-up ones. I tend to listen on my way to and from work and during the quieter times in the office. So, they need to be light and not distract me from what I’m doing. Obviously, […]

Book Review – Vox by Christina Dalcher

 I had a random encounter with a stranger because of this book. This isn’t something that normally happens to me but a woman approached me because of what I was reading. During a short train ride this weekend, I was rushing to finish my chapter before I got off at the final stop. Prompting a […]

Tuesday Review – Holmes and Watson (2019)

 So, I think I’m finally at the end of my list of outstanding reviews. It feels like an absolute age since I saw this film so it’s a relief to be finally writing it up. And I was pretty excited about seeing this one. I mean, there was a time when seeing the names Will […]

Sunday, 7 April 2019

How has your week been? What have you been reading? It’s been a super weird week for me this week. I started me new job on Wednesday so it’s all been a bit of a blur. I’m getting my head around the new role and the new people. After being at my old job for […]

Book Review – Moonlocket by Peter Bunzl

 I have to be honest, when I first requested this on NetGalley, I didn’t realise this book was part of a series and, embarrassingly, it took me a while to realise once I’d started. So, what was I going to do at that point? Stop reading altogether? I was invested now. And who is to […]

Throwback Thursday – The Lego Movie (

 I vividly remember writing my first review of The Lego Movie back in 2015. It was because I was writing it with a pen and paper. I was on a train going to and from a course at work but, because they’re always held in the middle of nowhere, it meant a 3-hour round trip. So, […]

Bookish Post – March Reading Wrap-Up

So, I know you were probably expecting a book review tonight and I do have one ready to go. But, as this is a pretty busy week for me, I’m going to hold off on posting that until Friday. I started my new job today and am out tonight with my old work. In order […]

Tuesday Review – The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (2019)

 It took me two viewings before I really came on board with The Lego Movie. The first time, I just didn’t get what the fuss was all about but, thanks to a chance special offer DVD, I gave it another chance. And I loved it. I couldn’t get the song out of my head and it finally […]
