One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey

This book is one of those that had sat on my TBR list for about two years but for some reason every time I saw it in the bookshop I opted to buy something else instead. But what better time to catch up with the TBR list than during this big lockdown? And I haveContinue reading “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey”

The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald

If you did an English A-Level or IB in a British school then most likely you studied Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. If you were particularly daring then maybe you didn’t even read the book properly but obtained the same info on Sparknotes and watched the film starring Leonardo Di Caprio. However, if youContinue reading “The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald”

Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell

George Orwell is probably most of the well-known authors around the world, with his book Nineteen Eighty-Four being on almost all ‘every book to read before you die’ list. And while Nineteen Eighty-Four is a well written and thought-provoking book, I also feel that Down and Out in Paris and London is equally as importantContinue reading “Down and Out in Paris and London by George Orwell”

Little Man, What Now? by Hans Fallada

Hiya! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything onto this page. With everything going on in the world and the precariousness of my financial situation posting on this blog took a little bit of a backburner. But now that I have more free time, I want to get back into and what betterContinue reading “Little Man, What Now? by Hans Fallada”

Normal People by Sally Rooney

I will hold my hands up and admit that I had been avoiding reading this book for a very long time. I had heard mixed reviews about Sally Rooney and after picking up her other most well-known book Conversations with Friends in Waterstones, I put it down 20 pages later as I simply didn’t enjoy her writingContinue reading “Normal People by Sally Rooney”

The Outsider/The Stranger by Albert Camus

I think, like most other book bloggers, I am not going to write a review of every single book I have ever read. I cannot even imagine how much work that would be. But one of the reasons why I decided to write a review on Camus’ work is because it seems to have goneContinue reading “The Outsider/The Stranger by Albert Camus”

Bonjour Tristesse by Francoise Sagan

As an early Christmas present, my mother had gifted me a trip to Waterstone’s to pick up any five books of my choosing. I had nailed down the 4 that I wanted and was struggling to decide on my final one. With time running out, I made a split section decision to go with thisContinue reading “Bonjour Tristesse by Francoise Sagan”

Greek Mythology: Prometheus

One of the most important Greek mythological figures in shaping humankind today is Prometheus. He is a Titan, culture hero, and a trickster. He is credited with the creation of humanity from clay and who defied the gods by stealing fire and giving it to human civilisation. But instead of being rewarded for his bravery,Continue reading “Greek Mythology: Prometheus”
