Here is a bunch of stuff I did, thought, said and looked at in 2014.
This week we spent time looking at each other’s portfolios, commenting on the work and looking at potential points for collaboration. It’s really nice to do this as it can help you think of new ideas, gives you inspiration and is a great way of learning and finding out more about someone else’s way of […]
2012 was in essence my recovery year. 2011 was fraught with my full time Master’s, full time work, big breakup, meeting family members for the first time and my first big holiday. By the end of it I was very happy, but also in need of a rest.
2/5 I’ve read a lot of DuMaurier books and loved them all. This one was somewhat different, and while it had her characteristic twists and turns, I just didn’t enjoy it like I have her other books. Julius is the story of a young boy, working his way from rags to riches, anyone who gets […]
This book brought me back to what I was beginning to like about the series. Mystery, intrigue. This time it was Brennan herself in trouble instead of a friend or family member, and I don’t recall an “I wish this…” moment, which is good, because I for some reason found those annoying. I enjoyed her […]
I wrote this way back when the movie came out… oops!
I love the Hitchcock version of Rebecca, and whilst it’s not 100% true to the book, I think it does it justice and makes for worthy watching. The BBC edition goes completely the other way and fails miserably. Film and book are completely different media and should be treated as such.
4/5 Death Du Jour is the second in the â€œBonesâ€ series by Kathy Reichs, this book picks up some while after the first book, Deja Dead. Phorensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan is again facing a killer who may be targeting someone close to her. Touching on the issue of â€œcultsâ€, mass hysteria and ritualistic killing, Death […]
3.5/5 Well it’s no secret I love Bones. I thought I’d try the books. Picked this one up as a treat. Found the next one in a charity shop for cheaps. It’s not bad. The titles leave a lot to be desired, but the content is good. I was unsure about the first person stance […]
4/5 I forgot to review this, I read it a week or two ago. It’s been on my bookshelf for about a year. Finally starting to get through them all. There’s a lot I’m really excited about reading, particularly some my uncle got me.
2/5 I don’t know where to start with this book. I’ve not read ‘The Rainbow’, nor have I ever read any other D. H. Lawrence books, so I had no expectations or frame of reference. I picked it up for £1.50 about three years ago and read about three pages while I was waiting at […]
