Sorry guys, the reason why I haven’t been posting is that I had spent time on preparing for my graduation! Yes, I’ve graduated from University in Major Psychology and Criminology and I couldn’t be happier! I had spent four years in University due to changes of one course that I didn’t like in the first year (English and Media) which I had then made a choice of choosing Psychology and Criminology and majored in the course I loved. It is such a happy moment when you graduated, honestly. “Everything seems impossible at first until it is done”-Nelson Mandela. Most of you I believe will be graduating this summer and I bet you can’t wait! The only downfall is that you’ll be leaving such an amazing environment and your little freedom that you had will be gone (if you’re moving back home) but nothing competes with the recognition of your hard work!
Who has read ‘The Girl on the Train’ by Paula Hawkins?! I am currently reading this book and I thought that I MUST do a review on it already. Yes, already even though I am only on page 120 but this book has caught my attention so quickly, I am shocked! Reading the reviews of this book were so positive even Stephen King had mentioned, “it had kept me up most of the night”. I just thought everyone has their own opinions and it can’t be that interesting probably just another story. But I was wrong, this book even kept me awake, as it is so unpredictable and interesting.
The book is about a woman who gets on the train to London every day for “work” and she always goes past these houses that she always looks into. She sees this couple who she believes is “the perfect couple” but one day what does she see?!’
The Girl on the Train’ has also been created into a movie now, so if you haven’t seen it, I suggest you read the book first, as it is so worth it!
Look what came today, the ‘milk and honey’ self-published book by Rupi Kaur. For about a few years now I have seen poems from this book on social media sites, especially on Instagram. Seeing these posts made me more intriguied as they had very much realted to my current situations in life. This book is set to have sold more than half a million copies just in the US alone, so surly it must be worth getting?
‘Milk and honey’ is the experience of; loss, violence, abuse, femininity and love. The book is divided into four chapters (the hurting, the loving, the breaking, the healing) as each chapter has its own purpose.
This book is retailed at £9.99 in book stores but can be found online for about £6.99. I am so excited to read these poems and if anyone has read this book please leave me a comment below and tell me what you thought of it, as it is always interesting knowing other people’s opinions!
