Hello book lovers! I am here today with your Friday post. I thought that in the midst of exploring more lifestyle-focused topics, I would write about something that I have been struggling with but know that is VERY relatable for a lot of people. That is – Being done with education (for now). As someone who finished university over two weeks ago, I am currently living in this confused state of wanting to be happy its summer break but also being smacked in the face by the fact that I am meant to have a career now and be a “proper adult”.

Hello book lovers! Life has been a bit crazy lately but I finally found the time to work on my blog which means me finally feeling happy with it and ready to focus on my summer posts. Hooray!

I got a really good response from all of you guys on Instagram when I ran a poll which showed me that this truly would be fun and a great idea to keep me on schedule with all of my accounts this summer.

Woo! Continue reading “March Book Haul”
Hello book lovers! Today I thought that I would do a bit of a lifestyle discussion after sharing a very stressful night of research for a paper on my Instagram and getting a number of followers requesting that I do this type of blog post. I am currently in my second year of university with my courses being fully project and paper based rather than exams. As good as that is for me, as I am not the best test taker, the short period of time that we get given or lack of guidance is more often than not absolutely overwhelming. Hence why I feel like I have now found a great system (half way through my second year) that helps me survive the chaos. I realise that obviously not all of these will work for everyone but it’s always helpful to hear other people’s tips that you have perhaps not tried before.

Hello book lovers! Today is a bit of a different post but that is because I had an incredible, unforgettable, and life-changing experience a few weeks ago and have finally found the time to share it with you.
On Wednesday, 07 February, I went to the Hachette publishing house in London with my university’s publishing degree students to have a three-hour visit. Now before I get into all of the things that made me fall even more in love and eager to have a career in publishing, let’s just enjoy this photo of me which completely sums up my entire day. I almost cried three times, no joke. Continue reading “An Unforgettable Day at Hachette”
