I thought a blog would be a great way to exchange book recommendations as I love reading and writing reviews. I've also started putting pen to paper, and have recently completed a creative writing course. Maybe you'll be reading one of my books down the line!?
If you want to share about what you're reading, or anything at all for that matter, let loose and go for it!
I'm putting all my other books on hold for now as I'm doing research for my next novel and this is very similar. Also, weirdly, it's set in Belfast where my book will be set. It's inspired by a true story, the authors own, when she came to Belfast travelling and was raped. It's a difficult read, but excellently done.
I realise I'm ridiculously late to the party on this one, but the feminist book club that I go to are meeting on Wednesday and this is the chosen book. As I've never seen any of the films I'm totally unspoilt, which is great and I love it. Unfortunately, I continuously see Renee Zellweger as Bridget, though and I hate when my imaginations over-written like that.
Medication is an incredibly attractive concept. Not just for the person with depression, or the person running a pharmaceutical firm, but for society as a whole. It underlines the idea we have hammered into us by the hundred thousand TV ads we have seen that everything can be fixed by consuming things.
I've struggled and struggled with this until I almost feel like pulling my hair out. I was so reluctant to DNF my second book of the year, like the first I read, but looking at the reviews a lot of people did the same thing i.e. kept reading in order to find out what happened and apparently it was a huge letdown. I'm going to trust this and set it down now, before I really do some damage to my kindle.
