Heartstopper – TV Show Review

Alice Oseman is an author I first picked up a book from in 2014. I picked up Solitaire whilst I was in college and struggling with a number of things. In that book I was introduced to Alice's writing, her characters and knew I was going to read more books by her as soon as they came out. Nick and Charlie were introduced to me in Solitaire and have always been characters I've adored. Years later, many Alice Oseman books later, she is still a favourite author of mine and Nick and Charlie are still some of my favourite fictional characters!

Anxious People by Fredrik Backman – Quote

I read Anxious People by Fredrik Backman earlier on this year and I loved it. It introduced me to Fredrik Backman's writing and had me feeling all sorts of emotions. There are so many amazing quotes throughout the book too. So, I wanted to do what I normally do with a book that I enjoy, which is pick a quote from it and get designing.

When fourteen-year-old Shaq is stabbed outside of a busy shopping centre in Manchester, three teenagers from very different walks of life are unexpectedly brought together. What follows flips their worlds upside down and makes Chantelle, Jackson, and Marc question the deep-rooted prejudice and racism that exists within the police, the media, and the rest of society.

Second First Impressions – Sally Thorne

Position Vacant: Two ancient old women residing at Providence Retirement Villa seek male assistant for casual exploitation and good-natured humiliation. Duties include boutique shopping, fast-food fetching, and sincerely rendered flattery. Good looks a bonus—but we aren’t picky. An advertisement has been placed (again!) by the wealthy and eccentric Parloni Sisters. The salary is generous and the employers are 90 years old, so how hard could the job be? Well, none have lasted longer than a week. Most boys leave in tears. Ruthie Midona will work in Providence’s front office, and be at the Parloni’s beck and call, forever. That’s sort of her life plan. If Ruthie can run the place in her almost-retired bosses’ absence, with no hijinks/hiccups, she has a shot at becoming the new manager. She might also be able to defend her safe little world from Prescott Development, the new buyer of the prime site. Maybe after all that, she can find a cute guy to date. All she needs to do is stay serious—and that’s what she does best. Until, one day, someone dazzling blows into town.
