Golden Globes – Meryl Streep is ICONIC.

Hi Guys!

So I have been absent for a little white due to Illness and University priorities, some essays have had to be written. I wanted my first post back since Christmas to be a book review but after the Golden Globes last night I had to make a post regarding Meryl Streep and all the twitter drama today. Frankly I don’t know why I even bother to look on twitter and read some of what these ‘people’ have to say.

Title: Stay With Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout stay with me.jpg

Genre: New Adult Romance

Synopsis

At 21, Calla hasn’t done a lot of things. She’s never been kissed, never seen the ocean, never gone to an amusement park. But growing up, she witnessed some things no child ever should. She still carries the physical and emotional scars of living with a strung-out mother, Mona—secrets she keeps from everyone, including her close circle of college friends.

But the safe cocoon Calla has carefully built is shattered when she discovers her mom has stolen her college money and run up a huge credit card debt in her name. Now, Calla has to go back to the small town she thought she’d left behind and clean up her mom’s mess again. Of course, when she arrives at her mother’s bar, Mona is nowhere to be found. Instead, six feet of hotness named Jackson James is pouring drinks and keeping the place humming.

Sexy and intense, Jax is in Calla’s business from the moment they meet, giving her a job and helping her search for Mona. And the way he looks at her makes it clear he wants to get horizontal . . . and maybe something more. Before Calla can let him get close, though, she’s got to deal with the pain of the past—and some very bad guys out to mess her up if she doesn’t give them her mom.

Lets Discuss – Opinions and Hate

discussion

Hey Guys!

Today I am coming at you with another Discussion post, I love doing these because not only do I get to rant for a little while but I also get to hear your opinions and at the end I feel closer to you after reading your insights. Today I want to discuss Opinions and Hate and firstly I want to recommend that you check out Fadwa’s blog @Word Wonders as she posted a discussion like this as well called Where’s All The Love . Whilst your over at her blog also be sure to check out her other posts especially To some, access to books is a luxury.

Now I’ve been wanting to do a post like this for a while because I have been seeing a lot of hate across social media but also during the American Presidential Election I was seeing hate towards celebrities expressing their opinions most notably for me I saw this towards Sophia Bush. Sophia has been in shows such as One Tree Hill and is currently in Chicago PD, I recommend following her on Twitter and her other social media platforms because not only is she just a kind and funny person but she spreads news that frankly I wouldn’t see here in the UK otherwise. She is also an Activist and linked to The Girl Project.

Genre: New Adult Romance

Synopsis

Teresa Hamilton is having a rough year—she’s in love with her big brother’s best friend, but he hasn’t spoken to her since they shared a truly amazing, mind-blowing, change-your-life kiss. She got out of a terrible relationship. And now an injury is threatening to end her dance career for good. It’s time for Plan B – college. And maybe a chance to convince Jase that what they have together is real.

Jase Winstead has a huge secret that he’s not telling anyone. Especially not his best friend’s incredibly beautiful sister. Even though he and Teresa shared the hottest kiss of his life, he knows that his responsibilities must take priority. He certainly doesn’t have time for a relationship. But it doesn’t help that all he can think about kissing the one girl who could ruin everything for him.

As they’re thrown together more and more, Jase and Tess can’t keep denying their feelings for each other. But a familiar danger looms and tragedy strikes. As the campus recovers, the star-crossed couple must decide what they’re willing to risk to be together, and what they’re willing to lose if they’re not…

She’s pretty but…

copy-of-q-a-1

She’s pretty but…

She could lose a few pounds,

She should wear different clothes,

She should try wearing more makeup,

She should try wearing less makeup,

She should try doing her hair,

She should try to be natural.

 

What is natural?

Is it the glossy photoshopped image in the magazine?

The plastic surgeon who would fix me?

The makeup artist who would hide my flaws?

The hairstylist who would redo me?

I wonder when society will learn to love me for me,

I think that’s the first thing I have to learn personally. Continue reading

Diversity – Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman

q-a-2

Hey Guys, 

Today I want to do something new on my blog and its a book recommendation that featured Diversity. 

I don’t know if it’s because I’m older or if its because I’ve been studying it lately but I’ve been drawn to the fact there is so much inequality in the world. Growing up I knew that, of course I did. Privilege is a thing, I come from a white middle class family who live in a small rural town in the UK and I go to university in a city, I see homeless people everyday and I’ve witnessed sexism and racism and experienced sexism and harassment from men.
