April 2017

This month was a whirlwind of revising, college, Easter holidays in which I did hardly any work, reading, watching movies and so much more. I read quite a lot of books this month since I put off revising for basically the whole two week holiday. Next month, my exams start so that’s going to be fun. But before I think about that, let’s talk about what I did this month.

Books I Didn’t Like

Yes, today I’m going to talk about books that I didn’t like. Yes, there may be books on this list that you love. But what to do? Everyone has some books that they don’t like and I love reading blog posts about books that they don’t like. So, I just thought screw it, let’s talk about some of the books I don’t like. I’m sorry if some of these are your favourites but everyone has their own opinions I guess. Some people hate some of my favourites and I may hate yours so sorry but here are some of the books that I didn’t like.

March 2017

This month’s post is probably going to be really short and boring because honestly, I did hardly anything except for college work. This is probably the way that these posts are going to be until June so bear with me guys! I’m the worst with stress so exams really do make me into a boring recluse who just works constantly. However, let’s see what I did end up doing this month.

February 2017

2017 is moving too quickly for my liking. Exams are getting closer which scares me. However, university is getting closer which is really exciting for me! I have already been given my uni flat and room and that is both terrifying and exciting. I didn’t get up to much this month because of a level revision but hey, can’t really blame me. I’m trying to really focus on my exams so that I will do well in them. Those are my top priority right now. But I did manage to do some other things this month.

Blurb:
Inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, Angie Thomas’s searing debut about an ordinary girl in extraordinary circumstances addresses issues of racism and police violence with intelligence, heart, and unflinching honesty. Soon to be a major motion picture from Fox 2000/Temple Hill Productions.
Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed.
Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.
But what Starr does—or does not—say could upend her community. It could also endanger her life.
