Wilson in my 20s

I have always been a big Jacqueline Wilson fan – her books were such a huge part of my childhood but I struggled to keep up with them as I grew up and eventually I just kinda seemed to not bother. So here I am at 24 and a half and I have challenged myself to read ALL OF THE BOOKS. I headed to google to find out exactly how many books the Queen had written and no one could give me a good answer, but it’s clear that there is a whole load. I do know that it was over 100 in 2014… That’s a lot of books.

January Book Roundup

It’s halfway (ish) through February and I decide that I want to start doing monthly round ups of the books I’ve been reading. This is the kind of idea that should have come to me in December so I could start it off nice and fresh and on time, but sadly that is not the way my brain works. So …

Paper Aeroplanes by Dawn O’Porter: A review

First things first, I love Dawn. She is one of my favourite TV journalists and all-round heroes, so I am surprised it took me so long to get round to reading her first novel. Reading the blurb I thought it sounded interesting but it was the fact that it was her that really compelled me to read it. The story, …

Why books are better than people

Happy World Book Day! I loved this day as a kid! Today, I am working so I’m subtly wearing my TFiOS top, and book earrings and I unintentionally look like every Young Adult protagonist ever! Anyhow, I was thinking about how much I love books (I love books so much!!!) and how they are so much better than people! (Spoken …
