Book Review: ‘A Kept Woman’ by Louise Bagshawe

‘A Kept Woman’ was a birthday present from my friend, Lucy (Hi Lucy!!). She appreciates my taste for cheesy romance novels and the author being one of her favorite, she wanted me to read her.

Book Review: ‘How to Find Love in Bookshop’ by Veronica Henry

I’ve been trying to finish this book for over a month now, which is never a good way to start a book review- I know. Usually, between my work, workout, writing and actual reading- I take about a week to finish a book but this took a long time. There’s a reasonable explanation- the book […]

Pride and Prejudice (And why it’s still apt) Part 1

I was 11 years old when I first got my hands on the ‘Pride and Prejudice’. While it wasn’t the first novel I read (that one’s ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ by Roald Dahl), it was certainly my first love story. Fast-forwarding to today, some 13 years later, I still treasure the book. Written over […]
