It seems an odd question to ponder, especially as I write reviews on this blog and have a whole page dedicated to my book reviews...yet it has been on my mind. Why? I guess because what I write doesn't necessarily constitute a review. Do I do a critical breakdown of a novel? Or do I … Continue reading Do I really write reviews?
Maybe it's because I'll soon be turning twenty eight (yes, twenty eight!) or because I read too much, but lately I've been having an issue with YA books.

So after last months random post, Sexism in the modern world, for November I wanted to talk about weight and body shaming. Yes, I know, contentious subject!
