Theatre Review: Rent // Hope Mill Theatre

I should tell you that I’m completely obsessed with Rent… I bought tickets to see Rent at the Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester on a whim. In all honesty, I just wanted to be in a theatre again. I was gutted for the cast, theatre and myself when the production was forced to close to […]Read More

‘Derry Girls’ Teaches Us More About Ireland Than School Did

Derry Girls has been on my watch list for months! I finally got round to watching it, and to be quite honest I can’t stop. It is my new obsession. Created by Lisa McGee, Derry Girls follows Erin (Saoirse-Monica Jackson), Michelle (Jamie-Lee O'Donnell), Orla (Louisa Harland), Clare (Nicola Coughlan), and James (Dylan Llewellyn) as they grow up in Derry during the 90s. Packed full of comedy, great music and touching family moments, Derry Girls has made me think about how much (or how little) I know about the Irish Troubles. Read More

Book Review: Cinderella is Dead // Kalynn Bayron

I picked up Cinderella is Dead by Kalynn Bayron as a holiday read. I grew up obsessing over Disney and Cinderella was one of the first films I watched. So a book which retold that story drew me in instantly. I ended up reading it in a day, I simply couldn’t (and didn’t want to) put it down! I’ll never look at classic Cinderella in the same way again. Read More

I spent a week revisiting one of my favourite series The Declaration trilogy by Gemma Malley. Reading it got me thinking about the young adult Dystopian era (I’m classing it from about 2009-2014). There are four months between the publication of The Declaration and the publication of The Hunger Games. One of these trilogies was significantly more successful than the other. I am obviously talking about The Read More

Ranking All The Pokémon Generations

I love Pokémon, it was one of the first games I played on my Nintendo DS, and one of the only franchises I keep up with. In fact I only got a Nintendo Switch so I could keep up with Pokémon. I recently reviewed Isle of Armor and with the next expansion pack (The Crown Tundra) for Pokémon Sword and Shield coming this Autumn, I thought I’d take my love of Pokémon a bit further. So here is my ranking of all the Pokémon generations. Read More

5 Things I’ve Learnt Since Going on Antidepressants

Making the decision to go onto antidepressants was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. Sitting in the doctor's office and realising my only option was antidepressants broke my heart. I was 15 at the time, going on a journey none of my peers were on. I couldn’t understand why my brain didn’t function like theirs. Read More
