Announcement: New Schedule!

Hi everyone,

I thought I’d take today to introduce my new blogging schedule. In the hopes of producing something that I am proud of and that I will actually stick to, I have created some new blog post ideas that I will post on particular days of the week. Hopefully this will mean I’m not gone for such a long time as I have a structure to adhere to. It also means I can schedule posts easier as I know deadlines. Anyway, here is the schedule for the foreseeable future.

Review Tuesdays

Here I will review a book that I have read and give my honest opinion on it. Pretty much a generic review really, I can’t really say any more.

Education Thursdays

This is where I will write about something I have learnt or something that generally interests me. I am aiming to provide educational content with amusing stories to accompany it.

Cat Mom Saturdays (or Caturdays)

I’m getting kittens tomorrow, so from now on I will write a blog post every Saturday to update everyone on their progress and show off pictures of my new babies. If anyone wants to see a sneaky preview I’ve posted a picture on my twitter!

I really hope that I stick to this schedule as previously I have found it difficult to keep up with the level of work needed to maintain a blog.

This Week I… #2

this week i #2

Reading: Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare and The Magic Toyshop by Angela Carter. I’m reading TMT for my English Lit class, but it is really good and I will most likely review it later on next week. It’s such an odd book. As for Clockwork Price, I still haven’t gotten over the last few chapters.

Listening to: Clean Bandit for some reason. I really like the string instruments used on a couple of their tracks.

Watching: Arrow, yet again. I also watched Kid Criminals on Channel 4. If you’re interested in the American detention system, as I apparently am, then this is extremely interesting.

Enjoying: Othello. Yesterday I saw a production of it at the Globe Theatre in London. It was awesome and the tickets were free which was an added bonus!

Looking forward to: Finishing my English Coursework. I have worked so hard this week and still have’t gotten it done, maybe tomorrow will be the day.

Also, If you haven’t noticed my header image is of art. Yet again. Two art galleries in two weeks makes me seem quite cultured, doesn’t it?

Here’s an update of all the things that have been going on this week!

Reading: The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. It was recommended to me by a lovely man in Waterstones who fangirled to me about it for ages. I’m really enjoying it so far.

Listening to: 1989 by Taylor Swift. See my review here!

Watching: Criminal Minds. The new season just started in the UK and I’m obsessed again. Also on my currently watching list are Gotham and Agents of SHIELD.

Wearing: My second-hand knitted jumper that I got from a charity shop last week. I’ve literally worn it for 4 days oops.

Enjoying: My awesome Wonder Woman scrunchie that I bought from comic con! I keep getting compliments on it.

Looking forward to: Seeing Twenty One Pilots next week. They are one of my favourite bands so I am really excited.

Reading Plans for the Week

There’s only one book on my reading radar this week and it is City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. This is the sixth and final instalment in The Mortal Instruments series. I trekked for 2 hours through London to visit the Piccadilly Waterstones and was so very happy to be able to purchase this. A good reward for unnecessary exercise I think. There are 733 pages in this book and it is about twice the size of the others in the series. This surprised me but as I have been waiting so long to read it, I don’t think it will take that long at all. I’m on page 112 already and I can already tell that it is going to be amazing. I think Cassandra Clare has really outdone herself on this finale. The only annoying thing about this book is that it is so large that it does not fit on my bookshelf. All of the other books in the series fit together nicely and this one will have to go on a different shelf by itself.

I'm in love with the cover art!

I’m in love with the cover art!

I may have lied a little, as I am in the middle of my GCSEs I am also going to re read Of Mice and Men. This is because I have an English Language exam tomorrow. Fingers crossed that I do okay.
