Hello to my lovely readers. I hope you’re still out there? I realise I have been quiet recently but I started a new job and was out of action for about two weeks whilst we were filming in Studio. It involved lots of early starts and plenty of late finishes, and although I would have loved nothing more than curling up with a book, I just lacked the energy and attention span at the end of my working day. The good news is, I have a few weeks where some normality will resume, which means plenty of reading time and, hopefully, lot’s more blogging.
At the moment I am in talks with a designer to come up with a new logo for the blog, although I love the current design, I feel that it could do with freshening up somewhat, but I am eternally thankful to the talented Jack Gill Design for my current logo and you should definitely look at some of his work here http://jackgdesign.co.uk/
It’s hard knowing that you lack the time to pursue a passion, I have an entire book case of novels just begging for me to read them. What’s even worse is being such a big bookworm, I still find myself purchasing more, and I just can’t seem to help myself. Just look at some of these paperback titles I’ve bought recently.
Girl Walks Into a Bar by Rachel Dratch
The Disaster Artist by Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell
The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor
Flappers by Judith Mackrell
Magnetism by F.Scott Fitzgerald
Ghost Boy by Martin Pistorious
Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo
Naked Lunch by William Burroughs
Abundance of Katherines by John Green
Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling
The Colour Purple by Alice Walker
Not to mention these titles I have purchased for the Kindle, although the beauty of these ones is that some of them were free, which is always perfect!
A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf
Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft
Maria, or the Wrongs of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft
I was inspired to try these titles out as I recently decided to become a member of the Manchester Woman’s Institute. I had such a wonderful evening being in a room full of women who are all inspirational in their own right, but it was also refreshing to be in the company of fellow women who want to support one another and have similar passions and hobbies. Also it wasn’t so long ago that we celebrated International Women’s Day, so in homage I took a photo of some of my favourite female authors.
I’m hoping to spend the next few days reading as much as I can and hopefully posting more. Please do let me know what you’re reading? Or why not let me know if there’s a particular book you’re excited about being released? Either way, do let me know you’re out there my dears. The ability to read and get lost in books and literature is a truly beautiful gift, which is why I own more books than shoes.
Until next time my fellow bookworms, happy reading!
