Title: Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me
Author: Lily Collins
Goodreads Blurb: “In this groundbreaking debut essay collection, featuring never-before-seen photos, actress Lily Collins—star of Mortal Instruments and the upcoming Rules Don’t Apply—is opening a poignant, honest conversation about the things young women struggle with: body image, self-confidence, relationships, family, dating, and so much more.
For the first time ever, Lily shares her life and her own deepest secrets, underlining that every single one of us experiences pain and heartbreak. We all understand what it’s like to live in the light and in the dark. For Lily, it’s about making it through to the other side, where you love what you see in the mirror and where you embrace yourself just as you are. She’s learned that all it takes is one person standing up and saying something for everyone else to realize they’re not alone.
By turns hilarious and heartbreaking, Lily’s honest voice will inspire you to be who you are and say what you feel. It’s time to claim your voice! It’s time to live your life unfiltered.” Continue reading “Review: Unfiltered by Lily Collins”
This was definitely my best reading month yet for the summer. I read three books, listened to one audiobook and have started a new series. Thanks to traveling to pack out of my dorm and finding really good books, I didn’t have trouble with choosing reading time over sleep nor TV. It’s about time I got back into my reading habits.

Having just finished my first year of university and having five months of summer, I thought that it would be a good time to add another thing to my blog: TBR’s (to-be-read). Although this may seem like a small selection for such a large amount of time, I have already had a week off and barely read more than 100 pages so I wanted to be reasonable. I blame Law and Order SVU – it is an addiction! Each of these books are fairly new to my shelf and are quite large. If I quickly get through these five, I will add a Part 2. I am hoping to continue these TBR posts next year, perhaps as monthly updates. Continue reading “Summer 17′ TBR”
To conclude a very long shopping day in Central London, my friend and I made the risky choice to go into Waterstones. With us both having a love for books and being publishing students, we rarely have the strength to limit ourselves. My total ended up being £45 (originally £55) for five books, a mug, and a tote bag – thank god for their £10 reward system. Yes, I now only need two stamps until my next reward but I probably shouldn’t be proud of that.
These are all books that I have been wanting to read (three classics, one recently award-winning, and a new nonfiction release). Really looking forward to reading and reviewing them. Updates will be posted on my Instagram. Continue reading “Waterstones Book Haul”
