How many people do you see posting a meme on a Sunday night about how much they’re dreading Monday morning? Or who religiously count down via ‘humpday’ until they’ve finally got that Friday feeling? We all do it but considering most of us require our jobs so we can actually keep a roof over our heads, put food on the table and keep up an excessive shopping habit, there’s not much chance of us quitting tomorrow to ‘follow our dreams.’
I realised a while ago that for some reason most of the books I read have a female lead. Perhaps it’s because I can naturally relate to them more? Who knows. When I picked up Stalker though I was well and truly mixing things up with one hell of a male protagonist. And I can report back that this ended up being potentially my favourite book that I’ve read so far in 2018. Perhaps a male lead is the way forward…
I have long been a Wagamama fan girl and I can never say no to the offer of a Katsu Curry. If I had to eat one meal for the rest of my life then that would probably be a major contender. Despite having an extensive menu that sounds the bomb I never really stray from my beloved Katsu so when the guys at Wagamama invited me down to try their new summer offerings I was there before you could say ‘free green tea.’
I have never been much of an outdoors person. I grew up in the countryside and although much of my childhood was spent ‘playing out’ and I lived in a town so small that we could and did walk everywhere; that’s about where my ‘outdoorsy’ side ends. I’m much more at home when I’m parked on the sofa and god forbid someone suggests an outdoor activity or even worse, camping.
Lately I’ve been in a bit of a ‘book lull’ and despite my inner bookworm being desperate to get stuck into a juicy new book I just couldn’t be bothered to start a new one. On a whim one day I picked up The Fear and thanks to this book I’m officially back in the game and flying through paperbacks like there’s no tomorrow.
