Open Letter: Leaving School

Dear fellow pupils,
                           You will probably never see this and some of you might not care but I have been thinking about leaving school so I will begin. After we finished our GCSEs I remember our head of year said the Winston Churchill quote, "Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning" and I can't help but think that the same can be said now. We are all leaving school, going to new beginning whether in be work or university but it is also the end, whether we have been at the sixth form for 3, 2 or just 1 year, we still have memories that we will carry for a life time, whether good or bad. We will remember the times we laughed and had good times with friends and the teachers who shaped who we are today contrasted with the stress and angst of exams, our time described to as a double edged sword. Some say that the school experience is the best time of our lives and I don't know how far you will agree with this but never the less we will never forget it. So I leave you with a quote from A Tale Of Two Cities, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times" but it was a time we will never forget. 

Best Wishes in life, 

See you soon, 

Amy

1 Year Blogging Anniversary and Giveaway (CLOSED)

So if you could not see by the title of the blog post, it has been a year since I posted my first blog post. I can happily say that this blog has changed a lot in this one year, I mean the layout has not been dramatically altered but the content has. This blog has increased my passion for reading and has been a way that I can spread this with everyone in this community. This has led me to read some incredible books and interact with some great people and I can happily say that I feel part of the community. 

Due to this being the first year of the blog existing, I hope for this to be the first of many so to track the changes in my blogging life especially in terms of my reading life. So let's get started...

Q1) Favourite book?

The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak- No book that I have read in the last two years seems to surpass how much I love this book but I am not saying that the books that I have read after this one are bad I just like this one a bit more...

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (OPEN)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...
