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 […]

Why Straight People Need to See Love, Simon


Unkategorised

As a straight person, it was hard to ignore the niggling thought in my head telling me there was something toxic in the floods of tears that attacked my face throughout seeing the film Love, Simon. I wiped away yet another tear as the credits rolled and I turned to my boyfriend. “Did you like it?” He […]

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 […]

Dear Stomach: Five Tips


Unkategorised

Dear Stomach, You and I don’t always get along too well. Even when I think I understand you better than anyone else, I’ll get on a train and you’ll complain all the way there. Or I’ll wake up to make myself some eggs and you’ll, pretty soon, tell me off. We have a love-hate relationship […]

The Mustard Yellow Edit


Unkategorised

Ever since I was a little girl, watching Winnie-the-Pooh with childishly happy eyes, I have adored the colour yellow. It was always my favourite colour. Even though I decided blue was for a little while (I really was, as my brother protested, simply copying Jordan’s favourite colour), and a little later green took its place, […]

3/52: Turtles All the Way Down


Kath's Bookshelf

Upon deciding to read fifty-two books this year─which I am documenting over on my Goodreads account as well as the blog─I knew John Green’s new novel, Turtles All the Way Down had to be one of the first books I read. I’ve been a huge fan, like a lot of people, since reading The Fault […]

2/52: A Million Miles in a Thousand Years


Kath's Bookshelf

Over on my Goodreads account I have set myself the challenge of reading fifty-two books this year. I have always been a bookworm but, last year, I didn’t prove it. Considering I’m an aspiring book editor and a wannabe author, it really makes no sense that I didn’t spend much of last year reading- especially […]

How to Stop Time by Matt Haig


Kath's Bookshelf

After reading and loving and always recommending Matt Haig’s Reasons to Stay Alive, I have been meaning to read one of his works of fiction for a long time. Last year I s-u-c-k-e-d at reading and so, inevitably, this didn’t happen… until this month. I have finished 2017 on a fictional high (and ready to take on […]
