I really enjoyed this book however I am going to say it‘s more of a guilty pleasure like as I feel like the book came across rather sexist. But it‘s written by a women so I kinda feel like there was a point behind it which I‘ve missed. The book follows a women who gets dumped on a live TV show along with 6 others where after they remain in a big brother style house to compete in challenges for a prize of Q9M.
I gave this book 5 stars ✨

I read this script after I loved the clip I saw. I really wish I got to see it with Alan in. Would‘ve been amazing. I don‘t usually read scripts but I really enjoyed it. I feel like it had a subtle meaning underneath all the book writing etc

This book kind of frustrated me because the first 100 pages lead me to believe this book was going to be an amazing, a definite 5 star review. But after those pages it kind of started to dull out a bit. They ended up just going on what felt like pointless adventures with no meaning just to drag the book length out, which is annoying because this could‘ve been really good

I cannot recommend this book enough! It‘s so informative and written in such an amazing way that makes it very easy to read. The story is a true story about how a Lesbian and Gay group helped a mining community in wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 during a strike in the 1980‘s. One thing I really liked about this book is that the politics wasn‘t all one sided. It was about 80/20, but still more than you‘d usually get

Goodbye to Berlin | Christopher Isherwood

I read this book after someone on postcrossing suggested it to me. It‘s a biography / diary from WW2 about different people and there ways of living. The 1st of which is the inspiration to the stage show cabaret. Although I enjoyed the Sally Bowles chapter, unfortunately that was the only one I really found interesting.

I cannot believe I read this in less than 24 hours. This might be my new favourite book series which makes me feel bad because I‘m loyal to Jeeves & Wooster. But honestly this is the 2nd book from this series and the 2nd one I‘ve voted 5 stars
YA series about a school for spies, the girls decide to investigate when the East Wing of the school is shut off and no one tells them why

So I‘m on a book ban until at-least the 13th September, but you can bet your bottom dollar that when that date comes around I‘m going to buy at-least 10 books because I‘ve managed to get my TBR down to 1 shelf and that‘s just not acceptable 😂

I decided to read this collection of books because I had a signed copy when I was younger but never actually read it. Today I finished the 1st book out of 4. It was very enjoyable and has made me miss ice skating. It‘s as good as you can expect for a children‘s book, but a must read for an ice skater

I am always so pleasantly surprised at how funny the books in the Jeeves and Wooster collection are. The humour seems to have stood the test of time very well 👍🏻 Not as funny as Carry on, Jeeves but funnier than The Inimitable Jeeves.

To Sir, With Love | E. R. Braithwaite
post image
Pickpick

Today I finished this book after 5 days. I decided to read this because the movie is my favourite movie of all time. Although I preferred the movie, it doesn‘t take away how moving and important this book is, it made me more aware and think about the horrible prejudices back in the 60s and how ‘Sir‘ overlooked that and moulded the minds of his students for the better. A must read!
I gave this book 4 stars✨

So I may have just made myself a Daniel Ricciardo bookmark. I printed out the drawing I did of him in his old Renault suit (because the drawing looks better than the one I did of him in the McLaren gear) onto photo paper, I then stuck it to card, then laminated it and then cut it out :)

I first picked up this book in my school library about 8/9 years ago, I never read it, I just liked the cover. After my birthday I went out on a limb and ordered the complete Gallagher girls collection and after reading just the 1st book it‘s fair to say it does not disappoint. The perfect book for anyone who loves a bit of action / spy material but isn‘t great with all the violence, crime and death

253: The Print Remix | Geoff Ryman

Mehso-so

How I‘ve come to this book ranking is a confusing one. Because on one hand I really like the idea of the book, it‘s a unique and never been done before style of writing. Each page is dedicated to a character on a train. Unique = Good thing. But in order for this to be successful, I think it needed to be written by an entirely different person. Because the Pro Thatcher vibes & misleading info on autism is really quite problematic

Never have I ever been more p*ssed off by a paragraph in a fictional book. I‘m autistic and this has got me fuming. Like what is even the point in writing this. But at the same time what can I expect from a book which seems rather Pro Thatcher 🤦🏼‍♀️

#book #books #bookshelf #reading #read #quote #b

Megabooks This is terrible!! Holy inaccuracies Batman! Wow! 6mo
Lissy1 @Megabooks this book is about people on the London Underground. So each page is related to a fictional character. And whilst the author does state that not all information within the book is correct, I don‘t think autism is something to give incorrect information. Especially when their are already so many misconceptions about it. This book was written in the late 90s though so perhaps that‘s what people believed at the time 🤷‍♀️ 6mo

I decided to read this book which I found someone posted about for the curious covers tag, and whilst I loved the idea of the plot, it just didn‘t quite reach the place I expected it to go. I would of preferred hearing more about the stories of the people Lily met through the night. There were some but I wanted more like that. This was in no way a bad read though

The top shelf is read and the middle is too read. There are 3 more compartments above it for more books! Also put my records on there in the come together box 📦
