20/52: This is Going to Hurt


Kath's Bookshelf, Uncategorized

I can’t quite believe it but I actually, for the first time throughout my reading challenge, have a back catalogue of book reviews to post. I set myself the, in hindsight, ridiculous challenge (which you can follow over on my Goodreads account) to read fifty-two books this year. While I am far from being ahead, […]

15/52: Little Fires Everywhere


Kath's Bookshelf

I have finished the fifteenth book of the year, Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. I am still tackling my, upon reflection, stupid idea to read fifty-two books this year. If you’d like to watch me continue to fail (I need to book in three holidays just to catch up), feel free to follow me […]

Edinburgh’s Best Drinking Spots


Kathventures

Two English people walk into some Scottish bars… Aaron and I love checking out local bars and pubs when we are visiting a new place. And Edinburgh, I can confirm, has plenty of bars and pubs. We tested out local gins (of which are also plenty!), lager, wine and even tried an obligatory whisky. Over […]

14/52: Whistle in the Dark


Kath's Bookshelf

I have officially finished reading the fourteenth book of the year; Whistle in the Dark by Emma Healey. I picked it up as April’s bookshop buy (since deciding I should buy a book a month from a bookshop so as to support the places I love to hang out in so much) because I saw […]

Three Films


Unkategorised

I used to spend the majority of my pocket money on DVDs. Nothing thrilled me more than going to ASDA and buying a film I’ve wanted to purchase for forever before it finally was priced at ¬£4. I still own every one of these films and could never ever imagine getting rid of the likes […]

12/52: From Rome With Love


Kath's Bookshelf

I started my bank holiday Monday with the last couple of chapters of From Rome With Love by Jules Wake; the twelfth book I’ve read this year. I decided to challenge myself to reading fifty-two books this year (which I’m also documenting over on my Goodreads account) and, after a few relatively heavy reads and […]

11/52: Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda


Kath's Bookshelf

Today I finished the eleventh book of the year; with teary eyes and that “WHY DOES THIS BOOK HAVE TO END” feeling in my heart. I’ve officially got three joint favourite books of the year so far; The Hate U Give, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine and now, Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by […]

10/52: Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine


Kath's Bookshelf

This year I’ve decided to have a go at reading fifty-two books before 2019 (while documenting it over on my Goodreads account). Yesterday I was horrified to see Goodreads terrifyingly labelled me “1 book behind schedule.” Today I finished the very popular Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. Now, I sit smugly, having […]

Review: My ASOS 4505 Leggings


The Adventures of a Kathlete

ASOS is my go-to site to order new workout gear from so, when they announced their very own fitness line (named ASOS 4505), you can imagine my excitement. Upon release, I headed straight over to ASOS to check out the range¬†and struggled to add just the one item to my basket. I regretfully managed it […]

Three Books: For Mother’s Day


Kath's Bookshelf

Since it’s World Book Day (one of the best days of the year for book nerds like me), a book haul is most certainly due. I fell in love with reading back when I was much younger (but not much smaller) and in my mum’s bed as she read books such as The Faraway Tree […]
