This is something new that I’m trying on my blog! Recently I have accumulated a few books from charity shops and car boot sales, and if there’s one thing I love it’s hauls so I thought I would try it out for myself ☺ I hope you enjoy it!
Ever since I first saw Legally Blonde: The Musical a few years ago, I have been thoroughly hooked with this story. Elle Woods is such a strong female character who rightly proves that blonde does not just equal beautiful. I cannot believe I haven’t read this novel before so I am so excited to delve in and compare it to its adaptations!
My mother picked this novel up for me in a charity shop as it was part of my wider reading for English Literature. The plot sounded so interesting as it combined issues of forbidden love with the Holocaust. I finished this novel a couple of weeks ago and a full review of it will be up in the near future, but let’s just say for now that I absolutely adored it!
‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ is one of those novels which you are told time and time again you HAVE to read before you die; it’s an ultimate classic. After the release of ‘Go Set A Watchman’, I told myself that I would 100% read this in the near future – and it still hasn’t happened! I will be delaying it further as I need to sink my teeth into some YA, but it is definitely on the to-read list.
I picked this anthology up in a charity shop as I deemed it would be perfect for my English Literature course. Some of the poems we have studied are included in here as our theme is Love Through The Ages, so it only seemed fitting I read some similar for my wider reading and get a better understanding of the time periods’ issues.
Last year I attempted to read Derren Brown’s ‘Confessions of a Conjurer’, and it wasn’t that I didn’t enjoy it, but I was in a serious reading block and it wasn’t the kind of material I needed. However, now I am back into my reading habits I am very keen about delving into Derren’s books, mainly because I am completely obsessed with his work! Therefore I picked up ‘Tricks of the Mind’ in order to get a better insight into the wonderful, befuddling ways of Derren Brown.
And that’s about it for this haul! I really hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed writing it; it was so lovely to write a chilled, casual post in contrast to my usual reviews. Please let me know if you’d like to see more of these in the comments below!
