When Mae is hired to work for the Circle, the world’s most powerful internet company, she feels she’s been given the opportunity of a lifetime. Run out of a sprawling California campus, the Circle links users’ personal emails, social media, and finances with their universal operating system, resulting in one online identity and a new age of transparency.
Mae can’t believe her great fortune to work for them – even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at the Circle becomes increasingly public…
Check out the books I hauled in July, and see what posts by others in the community I’ve been loving!
I haven’t read 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher, but I have heard a lot about it through the BookTube and Book Blogging community, which is why when Netflix announced they were making a TV show adaptation – I got excited.
Unfortunately, it did not live up to expectations.
How far is too far when it comes to the people you love? Claire Casey hates being the centre of attention. But if it means getting Sef Malik to notice her, it’s a risk she’s happy to take. Sef is prepared to do anything to help his recently disabled brother. But this means putting Claire’s love – and life – on the line. Because when you’re willing to risk everything, what is there left to lose?
This tag has been doing the rounds on BookTube, so I decided to take part.
Let’s see what 2017 has been like in reading for me so far…
Eleanor first meets Park, she thinks he’s obnoxious. When Park first meets Eleanor, he thinks she’s weird. It is hate at first sight. But as they suffer each other’s company in silence on the bus rides from and to home every day, Eleanor and Park realise that first impressions can be deceiving.
I have a couple of days off in July, so I’m hoping to schedule lots of posts on the blog, I miss you guys!!
Check out the books I hauled in June, and give me some movie recs, I haven’t seen a good one in a while! Oh, and also let me know what you think of my blog redesign!!
When a newborn baby dies after a routine hospital procedure, there is no doubt about who will be held responsible: the nurse who had been banned from looking after him by his father.
What the nurse, her lawyer, and the father of the child cannot know is how this death will irrevocably change all of their lives, in ways both expected and not.
Small Great Things is about prejudice and power; it is about that which divides and unites us.
Life has been whopping my ass, therefore this post is about a week late. BUT I couldn’t let the mid-point of 2017 go by without marking it in some way (HOW is it past the halfway mark of this year already, HOW?!). I had a solid start to reading this year, but I’ve fallen a little behind due to work commitments and studying. My final exam is the 20th of July, and then I’m free! Figuratively speaking, I still have to work and earn dolla. But you get my drift. That said, here are my top ten books of 2017 (so far)…
How often have we, as Book Geeks, perused Pinterest getting lost for hours having a good nosy at Book Nooks, Libraries, and Reading Rooms?
How often do we eagerly snap up Buzzfeed articles with titles like, “20 Beautiful Reading Spaces”? How often do we dream of winning the lottery and building a personal library that Belle would be proud of? (Beauty and the Beast reference, people!).
If you’re anything like me, I’d say all of the above occur pretty often. In a burst of random creativity (and at an ungodly hour in the morning), I decided it was finally time to make my dream a (virtual) reality. **Drum roll, please!**
It’s getting to that groggy mid-point of the year, where I’m really looking forward to getting my upcoming exams finished so I can spend more time reading and blogging, but similarly I’m fondly day-dreaming of warm sandy beaches and cocktails by the pool…
With summer on the way, some of you may have your holiday plans sorted, but for those who don’t, here are some things I’d like to read/do, that can maybe be your inspiration too!
We’re almost halfway through the year, and finally our little island got some sunshine! April was wonderful, and put me in a GREAT mood, but it was also kinda dreadful to be stuck in work wishing you were in a beer garden instead…
Find out what books I’ve hauled, what I’ve read, and what movies I’ve been watching in April and May. I’ve also done a round-up of some of my favourite posts from other bloggers, so don’t forget to check them out!
Once upon a time, I created a series of posts called Sharing the Bloggy Love, where I talked about my favourite book blogs. As a blogger, I follow A LOT of blogs, so each one of these posts only featured a handful at a time, in alphabetical order. From memory, I barely made it halfway through the alphabet.
I’ve been blogging for three years now, and in that time we’ve lost, and gained, some great Book Blogs, so I’ve decided to compile a list of my ultimates – the ones you should really be following.
Sixteen-year-old Starr lives in two worlds: the poor neighbourhood where she was born and raised, and her posh high school in the suburbs. The uneasy balance between them is shattered when Starr is the only witness to the fatal shooting of her unarmed best friend, Khalil, by a police officer. Now what Starr says could destroy her community. It could also get her killed.
