Top 5 Books from my Childhood

83 views 0 Comment

Reading has always been a huge part of my life. When I was a child reading was my escape. Its what I did before I went to bed, on the train, during downtime while were on holiday; you get the picture. It was during this time I began re-reading different books, some of which I still read today. Obviously, I have found a few favourites as I went along. So today I’m sharing my top 5 Childhood favourite books.

The Alchemist: Cardiff Bloggers Social

Last Wednesday I attended my first Cardiff Bloggers Social at The Alchemist, Cardiff. I was fairly nervous going because I’m not comfortable in new places and with new people. However, it was extremely friendly. Kacie from The Rare Welsh Bit; who organised the event, was so welcoming and immediately made me feel at ease.

It was a wonderful chance to meet other bloggers from around Cardiff. During this event, I was able to meet many different people.

The Red Queen by Christina Henry

If you’ve already read my review about Christina Henry’s Alice you know how much I loved that book! When I discovered that she’d written a sequel, The Red Queen this went straight to the top of my TBR pile. 

Unfortunately, I wasn’t as taken by this book as the first one. It’s not that it was bad, or that I didn’t enjoy. Compared to Alice, which is such a different take on the original tale and that was so dark and creepy that this one didn’t live up to my expectations.

Going Vegetarian: Starting the Journey

As you may have read in my New Beginnings post last month, Conor and I made the decision to go vegetarian a few months ago. Today I thought I’d share a quick post about why we made this decision and how it’s going so far, for anyone who’s possibly thinking about cutting out or reducing meat. Or for anyone who is particularly curious.

Why Vegetarian?

Let’s start with the burning question that’s going through everyone’s mind.

I love makeup and beauty. Check out my Top 5 Makeup Wish List for proof of this! However, I can be lazy. Most of the time I like things that are quick, easy, or just make my life that little bit simpler. This is where eyebrow tints come in! Eyebrows are one of the things I love and hate in equal measures (very much like nails, but that’s another story.) I like how they look,

Dollhouse by Anya Allyn

Have you ever read a book that has left you disappointed, yet still wanting more? This is how I felt at the end of Dollhouse by Anya Allyn. I read the very last line of the story and found myself thinking what? Why has it finished here? However, it did make me really want to know what was happening next in the sequel. It was frustrating yet intriguing at the same time.

I enjoyed the whole concept of the book.

New Beginnings

Now I know what you’re thinking! New Beginnings, isn’t this something I was reading in January. New Year, New Me and all that. This is a bit like that but let’s call it more like a Mid Year Review, or a hello! I’m back, this is where I’ve been, what I’ve been doing and what my plans are.

The last time I posted was back in September. I had taken a break from blogging then.

Christopher Robin 2018 Film

Have you seen the latest Disney Film Christopher Robin? I went to see it the other day. As soon as I saw the trailer I knew I wanted to see it. It felt reminiscent of the old Winnie the Pooh films with a modern adaptation and a timeless storyline.

I was reminded of the 1991 film Hook starring Robin Williams within the ideas behind it and the basic story. Overall Christopher Robin was one of the most heartbreaking and heartwarming films of all time.
