REVIEW: Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

EtheringtonHeaders-ReviewsDSC_0647Reviewing classics can be a little daunting. They’re classics for a reason. You know the titles long before you read them, and often you know the story, or think you do, before you’ve even started. Sometimes you already feel a connection with the characters or sometimes an element of the story makes you reluctant to read it.  Continue reading “REVIEW: Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte”

THAT’S A WRAP: December 2017

EtheringtonHeaders-That's A Wrap

The festive season has been busy, busy, busy which means the blog has been tumbleweed levels of quiet. I was hoping to get some blogging done while I was home for Christmas, but well, things never do go as you plan and it’s been a few months since I was last home so it seemed important to just relax and catch up with everyone. So I am barging into the New Year as disorganised as ever, but I’m going to schedule some blogging time in over the weekend. So hopefully, less tumbleweed moments?

Guys, it’s the last WWW before Christmas! I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone. It doesn’t seem real that 2017 is coming to an end, but I’ve read some fantastic books (and had some fantastic things happen). So, Merry Christmas everyone!

Hello, hello. I’m back again to do another WWW Wednesday post. Hurray. I’m also graduating tomorrow. So I will officially be a Master of Art, which sounds way cooler than it probably is. I feel like I should be able to do some cool magical trick, or be an expert. I’m not, but if I was, I promise I would use my power for good. Like correcting all the signs with errant apostrophes.

So reading! I’ve been doing a lot of manuscript reading because of my internship, so I haven’t always had much time to read for my own pleasure. And then I did the other day and it was another manuscript, which doesn’t really help matters.  Continue reading “WWW Wednesday- 22nd November 2017”

Hello, it’s me. I haven’t done a WWW Wednesday since the middle of October which seems shocking. I have been reading, I swear – but I read a couple of manuscripts during my internship that I can’t really talk about, so I’ll stick to the books I have read. It’s been a slow few weeks on the reading front but I have finished a few. Continue reading “WWW WEDNESDAY: 8th November 2017”

READING LISTS: Halloween Picks (If you don’t like a fright)

EtheringtonHeaders-Reading Lists

DSC_0851Halloween is the day when all the ghouls come out to play. I know, I know, but for some of us who couldn’t say ‘boo’ to a ghost, it means dodging all the horror films that your friends want to watch during a movie marathon and miserably failing. If horror films scare you like they scare me, than you’ve probably had to sit for two hours staring at your lap and occasionally peeked at the screen to see if it was over.

I’m not a complete monster, I do give sweets to trick-o-treaters, but my preferred film on Halloween is The Rocky Horror Picture Show and if I’m going to read, I lean towards the Gothic rather than the scary. Halloween is also puts me in a fantasy mood too, so I love delving into a magical story at the end of October.

So if you don’t revel in fright night, here are some books that will keep you entertained and your heart rate (mostly) steady. Continue reading “READING LISTS: Halloween Picks (If you don’t like a fright)”

READING LISTS: Books That Have Sentimental Value

EtheringtonHeaders-Reading Lists

DSC_0922If you’re anything like me then you probably have an unhealthy attachment to most books. You can’t bear to get rid of them, even though their piled up under your bed, in your cupboard, one literary Jenga game waiting to tumble down and knock you senseless. You would probably still love them even then. But, like with most of the objects we collect, there are certain books that mean something more to me. It might be to do with the writing, the way a book makes me feel, or it might be because it was a gift, or I read it at a certain time. So, what with the dreaded move which involved a look of book lifting and rearranging, I thought now would be the perfect time to revisit some of the books that have a special meaning to me.  Continue reading “READING LISTS: Books That Have Sentimental Value”

MISC: Top Ten Tuesday- 1st August 2017

toptentuesday2

 

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they post a different topic that one of their bloggers answers, and they invite others to join in either by posting their answers as a comment or by creating their own blog post.

Top Ten Tuesday is taking a break for a couple of weeks. I only started taking part in TTT a few months ago, so I thought in the meantime I’d look through some of the old topics. Luckily there are literally hundreds to choose from, so I have enough to keep me busy until it starts back up in August! This week I’m revisiting 10 Books I Picked Up on a Whim, so I’m going to share 10 books I impulsively bought that are on my TBR!
