Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid – Review

Malibu Rising was my most anticipated release of this year and I was not disappointed. At this point, I'm sure now that anything Taylor Jenkins Reid releases in the future is going to be a guaranteed five star read. I've read three of her novels now (Daisy Jones and The Six, The Seven Husbands of … Continue reading Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid – Review

April 2021 Wrap Up

Not the best reading month of the year so far. The UK came out of lockdown, university got a whole lot more intense and my reading suffered because of it. I'm trying not to be too hard on myself as it's possible that I won't be able to read as much as I have been … Continue reading April 2021 Wrap Up

I squat there and think about how you get trained early on as a woman to perceive how others are perceiving you, at the great … Continue reading Writers & Lovers by Lily King – Review

Here's what I bought: Kim Jiyoung, Born 1982 by Cho Nam-Joo Blurb: In a small, tidy apartment on the outskirts of the frenzied metropolis of Seoul lives Kim Jiyoung. A thirtysomething-year-old โ€œmillennial everywoman,โ€ she has recently left … Continue reading The Shops Reopened!

The Party by Robyn Harding – Review

It's not often I give books below a two star rating but The Party by Robyn Harding was, to put it simply, bad. It reads as though somebody fleshed out a short story that had been written for a high school assignment into a 300 page novel. I found myself skim reading most parts after … Continue reading The Party by Robyn Harding – Review
