Pretty good month :) if you've read them tell me what you think!

There's a review of Meg Cabot's Abandon up and I have a video review for Broken to upload in the next few days, so if you want to see more in depth of what I thought of them, please check them out!


  1. Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman is very well written. It's understated and I love that in a book. I can only describe the atmosphere as grey, but it gives a really good feel for how when we tie our happiness to material gain we risk missing other things in life, economic recession and the familial relationships are a theme I think we can all relate with.

    Moll Flanders :)) Well, I didn't find it quite as 'naughty' as Fanny Hill by John Cleland. I find Moll thinks a little more than Fanny Hill (who arrived on the literary scene some twenty years later). IT's not my favourite classic, but it's not a bad read.

    Wither souns familiar...

    Happy reading :)
