Recent Rambles: It's time...

This is a blog post that I had hoped to write for a long time but I guess I did not expect to write it in this way. This is weird because I have not told you lovely people what I have actually done. This may not sound like sound like something massive to some of you reading this but I posted my first selfie. OK so let me explain...

Why is this important?

        For the five years that I have had some kind of social media, I have never had a selfie as a profile picture or any picture of myself as a profile picture. This may seem weird but I never felt comfortable in having a picture of myself online. Yes, at the beginning, I was worried about the weird people who could see the picture of me but at 19 was this really something I needed to think about. No in retrospect not really... 
         I have never been part of the "selfie generation" I guess, I have really taken pictures of myself and this is kind of the point. I never really liked the pictures of myself so if I don't like the pictures then why to post them online. So why the change you may be saying. Well funny you should say that...

Why the change?

         I guess I finally feel somewhat comfortable in my own skin. Yes, no profile picture had its benefits, no one can judge you on your appearance and it is solely based on what your opinions are. But I don't personally feel like I need this almost disguise and I am happy to share who I am. I did, however, want the change to be different, a really artsy picture of me where I look so Tumblr but come on this is real life, stuff like that does not happen.
          So some of you may be interested why the picture and what happened so let me explain. I was at having a day out with my Dad and Sister and we went to Madame Tussauds and when a normal person sees a waxwork of R2-D2 you take a picture. So it was from there that was when my profile picture was changed after a pretty spontaneous decision on my part. 

The Girl Behind The Books













So after this, you can see what I look like although you can see from the Google Plus thing on the side of the page. So this is who I am, an acceptable version of me. Although I doubt that I will be taking selfies anytime soon...

I don't really have a comment question but feel free to comments your thoughts of the subject. 

Thank you for reading. 

See you soon, 

Amy

P.S. If you see me at any events feel free to say Hi!

On Turning 22

So on Wednesday (today when this goes up) I will be 22. *is currently listening to 22 by Taylor Swift* Obviously. The thing about turning 22 is the fact that you have just turned 21. I say just it was a whole year ago. 21 which has so many meanings behind it which is what I mentioned in my post last year so turning 22 feels kind of meh.21 felt to me last year as to be some big thing like my whole life was going to change. I was graduating from university after so much in my life felt like it was going to change.But the thing is it didn't.I stayed for a Masters in History. At the same university with people that I have know for some year and new ones and of course the people the people that graduated last year ain't there anymore and I do miss them. Things are still kind of the same.Turning 22 feels like it's in the middle. It's not special. It doesn't hold special meaning. It's just itself. This is how I feel like 2019.2019 is such a middling year for me. I'…

Favourite Books Of The Year (2018)

As it is now 2019 I think it is time to share my favourite books of 2019. I read over 120 books last year, 125 to be exact so there is a lot to choose from so I will be doing a top 10 with 7 honourable mentions so let's get started...

Honourable Mentions:

















Number 10: Theatrical by Maggie Harcourt 


Theatrical was just so fun. I feel in love with everything in the book and loved the romance. I really enjoyed the whole idea of going backstage in the theatre so I would definitely recommend. 
















Number 9: Lord Of Shadows by Cassandra Clare



I am more than happy to say that I was a massive fan of Lady Midnight but there was something about Lord of Shadows that I devoured and loved. That ending also broke me so I hope that I can read Queen of Air And Darkness in 2019.  













Number 8: Are We All Lemmings And Snowflakes? by Holly Bourne

I did really enjoy this book and thought that it was an interesting look at mental illness. I love Holly Bourne anyway so of course, I was going to love this book. I want …

Book Review: Ascension by Victor Dixen

*I am reviewing this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. *

Title: Ascension Author: Victor Dixen Publisher: Hot Key Books Source: Readers First Rating: 5/5 stars
(Amazon|Goodreads)



Book Summary:
Six girls, six boys. Each in the two separate bays of a single spaceship. They have six minutes each week to seduce and to make their choices, under the unblinking eye of the on-board cameras. They are the contenders in the Genesis programme, the world's craziest speed-dating show ever, aimed at creating the first human colony on Mars.

Leonor, an 18 year old orphan, is one of the chosen ones. 
She has signed up for glory.
She has signed up for love.
She has signed up for a one-way ticket.

Even if the dream turns to a nightmare, it is too late for regrets.

Book Review: 

I was excited to read Ascension as Hot Key were describing this as Love Island in space and much like the rest of the UK, I have been hooked by the show that has just finished. This description is so accurate bu…
