Wayward Son by Rainbow Rowell

I have been positively giddy with anticipation waiting for Wayward Son; Carry On is one of my all-time favourites and I couldn’t wait for more Simon and Baz content. I couldn’t even wait for the hardcover copy I ordered to release on 3rd October (the special edition signed copy from Waterstones natch). I caved and bought the eBook so I could read it on 24th September (which falls in line […]

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

I was mulling over my review for Wayward Son when it occurred to me that I had never actually reviewed Carry On (for shame!) and oh, how appropriate that I was just now listening to a playlist on Spotify and Bohemian Rhapsody came on (carry on, carry on…) most fortuitous!

Although the characters themselves do not travel through time, through some unknown phenomena the main character Georgie […]

Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston

If I’m being absolutely, completely, brutally honest, I actually struggled to get into this book at the beginning (which really sucked since I was so looking forward to it). The reason for this is because I really struggle with third person present tense (yet oddly enough, don’t have trouble with first person present tense – guess I’m just weird that way!) However, I persevered and I’m so glad I did […]

DS9: An Overview

The Background Deep Space Nine is my favourite Star Trek series. No, more than that, it is my favourite television series of all-time. It definitely didn’t start out that way though. I already was a huge trekkie (I loved both the original series and The Next Generation) so I thought DS9 would be a slam-dunk. I struggled to get into the first episode though, and further episodes just didn’t click […]
