Happiness Collides

Happiness collides, With a little sorrow and mumbling lies. Knew you from a time before, Knew enough, to know you more. You continue looking, Straight into my eyes. Talking in another language, I couldn’t confide. I still remember the softness Of your beautiful eyes. I miss the way you looked at me, And how you […]

So, I have a friend who doesn’t think her writing is good enough. And another friend who thinks her writing isn’t good enough And another friend… well, you get the point. So, the purpose of this post is how to make you realise that your writing is less shitty than you think it is (because […]

Book Review: ‘The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris’ by Jenny Colgan

This book gave me legit diabetes. It was too sweet from the start to the finish, given it’s got a title that mentions ‘chocolate’. The book has two protagonists, Anna and Claire- Claire used to be Anna’s French teacher- and Anna’s miserable accident landed her in the hospital, and for Claire, it was another chemo […]

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: ‘Going La La’ by Alexandra Potter

If you don’t know already, I’m a sucker for contemporary chick-lit/romance novels. Alexandra Potter’s ‘Do You Come Here Often’ is actually one of my favourite books to read.

Book Review: Who’s that Girl by Mhairi McFarlane

You know there’s a longing you feel for something that’s finished- or as the protagonist, Edie in ‘Who’s that girl’ put it- saudade . A profound longing for something or someone that is absent and might never return. That’s how I felt at the end of the book- a feeling of saudade.  I’ve always been […]

Pride and Prejudice (and why it’s still apt) Part 2- Mr Darcy

The last one was a very literary description of the importance of themes and their relatability to the current times, this one is more of the many reasons why I think Mr Darcy is literally a gift to humanity and how men should be more like him and women should want to be with men […]

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 […]
