Bookstagram Week 2 2017

This week I have been reading Lyrebird by Cecelia Ahern, to be honest I haven’t read much of it, it’s ok an easy read but a bit boring.

Anyway on to the books, my reading has slowed down a good bit which is ok because I’m not far off completing my goal for the year so I can relax a bit.

Released back in 2006 The Kill (Bury Me) by Thirty Seconds to Mars is still as relevant today as it was then, it’s one of those songs that just sticks with you and as soon as you hear those first words it pulls at your insides..

Watch it Wednesday

Hello and welcome to my first Watch it Wednesday! I asked on Twitter recently if I should add an entertainment section to the blog and got a very positive reaction so here we go! I have been locked in a total binge watching session with Doctor Who for the last few weeks so haven’t really watched much else but I’ve gone through the planner for the next week and highlighted some top picks.
