A Weekend in the City

Kathventures, Uncategorized

Last weekend, Aaron and I had a booked-well-in-advance rarity: a weekend together. We stepped onto the train and towards the unknown; a whole Saturday in each other’s company with three-for-one-pound sweets and sweet chilli crisps in our bags. It was already too much… I slept the whole way. As soon as we arrived at London […]

23/52: Sharp Objects

Kath's Bookshelf, Uncategorized

Last month I packed quite a few books into my very nearly over-the-weight-limit suitcase and headed to the dreamy Paphos in Cyprus. I spent a sufficient amount of time ignoring Aaron and parking my nose neatly into a book. The first book I read and finished, to the soundtrack of waves and Aaron trying to […]

The Paphos City Guide | Food and Drink

Kathventures, Uncategorized

It’s now been just over a week since Aaron and I arrived back from what we’ve dubbed as our favourite summer holiday yet. We visited the awesome Paphos, a city that sits on the southwest coast of Cyprus. The city of meze, rocky seas and KEO (the local beer that we loved so much we […]

22/52: While I Was Sleeping

Kath's Bookshelf, Uncategorized

Before I headed off on holiday just over a week ago, I tortured my heart by reading a Dani Atkins book. My mum had read While I Was Sleeping a couple of weeks before and she wanted to speak about it with someone so badly she bought me my very own copy. I have since […]

21/52: Everything I Never Told You


Kath's Bookshelf

This year I’ve set myself the challenge to read fifty-two books before 2019; a challenge I’m documenting over on my Goodreads account. While I’m by no means confident I’ll get anywhere near fifty-two books before the year’s up, I’m feeling more cocky than I have since early February. I saw this book was only £2 on […]

20/52: This is Going to Hurt


Kath's Bookshelf

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, […]

19/52: Difficult Women


Kath's Bookshelf

As if by magic, I have finished reading the nineteenth book of this year, Difficult Women by Roxane Gay. My New Year’s Resolution was to read fifty-two books this year and, in turn, document it over on my Goodreads account. With a new job giving me evenings and weekends alongside a holiday booked for next month, […]

18/52: Leah on the Off Beat


Kath's Bookshelf

Today I’ve spent my Saturday exactly as I would have back in the day; after a run, I hid away from the dull day outside with a book. Specifically, Leah on the Off Beat by Becky Albertalli. I’ve challenged myself to read fifty-two books this year (check out my Goodreads account HERE) and have, thus […]

Three Books NOT to Pack for Your Summer Holiday


Kath's Bookshelf

If you’re not already on holiday, you may be heading towards sunshine and beaches (not that we can complain in the UK right now) very soon. There have been three stand out moments where I’ve found myself on holiday or returning from a holiday absolutely regretting my choice in book. While these three books are […]

Why English Grads Should Do Freelance Writing


Unkategorised

As of today I have been freelance writing for a whole year. Just before this day last year I was a fresh-faced English graduate only able to secure a couple to a few shifts a week from the Saturday job I landed at sixth form. When I received the “you’ve got the job” email, sat […]
