Summer 2016 Reading List

East Strand, Portrush, Northern Ireland. Taken on 13th July 2016. A summery day!

Hello once again! Twice in one day, I’m spoiling you today 😝 

Earlier I mentioned my reading list. Since I actually managed to read the majority of my list last year, if not all of it, I thought I would share with you this year’s list to have read before I (hopefully) return to university in September. I’ve no idea what order they’ll be read in but don’t worry, all reviews will be posted asap after I’ve finished each book!

  1. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. This is part of #GGbookclub ‘s book club that I decided to join after suggesting starting a book club. If anyone’s interested in joining, find them on Twitter at @theggbookclub !
  2. What Dreams Are Made Of by Sheila O’Flanagan.
  3. I’ll Run To You by Nikki Vale.
  4. Almost Dead by T. R. Ragan
  5. The Housewife Assassin’s Vacation To Die For by Josie Brown. I started this series last summer and fell in love so I have this and then book 6 to read!
  6. The Housewife Assassin’s Recipes for Disaster by Josie Brown.

Six books. That should be easy enough to complete, shouldn’t it? I normally would aim for more but we’ll see how this list goes.
Enjoy your evening or have a good night’s sleep! Feel free to join me in reading these and we can have a good discussion about them when we’re both done.

Accidental rambling

So I’m currently attempting to revise but my mind isn’t focusing at all as sitting behind me is a nearly packed suitcase! Ibiza isn’t far away and I’m desperate to get away now. 

I seriously cannot settle down to do any work and I’m beginning to worry. How am I meant to pass these resits if I can’t focus for more than a couple of hours at a time during the day? I mean, I could stay awake at night but that makes the day time work ethic even worse. Any suggestions?
Today’s thought for the day is 

Judge a man by his questions, not by his answers.   

– Voltaire          

So what does that mean for us? To me, especially today, it implies that an intelligent person doesn’t boast of his intellect through his answers, rather he asks the right questions at the right times. 

This week has been an interesting political development, probably one of the bigger ones of my lifetime. As we all know, the U.K. voted to leave the EU at the end of June. As a result, David Cameron resigned as prime minister and we now have Theresa May. Now, truth be told, I know very little about her, her policies or her intentions for the country. However, I am slightly wary of her for the simple reason I was unaware of her before this parliamentary shuffle. Is that wrong of me to say, especially when women should be rejoicing at this supposed win for feminists around the globe? I don’t know. All I do know is that it’s time I took an interest in the politics of the mainland and left behind the politics of Northern Ireland.
Whoops, I somehow got off topic. I actually came on here to talk about my summer reading list and how I’ve just downloaded Pokemon go! But I’ll save that for later. So call back tonight for this summer’s reading list and any other ramblings I may have!
