Venus As a Boy, by Luke Sutherland
This was recommended to me by a friend, and since I read it I left it in a charity shop to go on an adventure. I was attracted to it as the initial setting is on Orkney, my home away from home, and it contains some beautiful words about the place. The story as a whole however wasn’t for me. I’d say it was worth reading however if only for this quote;

"Orkney has no trees. Thats the thing that seems to blow first-time visitors away. Orkney, yeah, its got no trees. There are other things about it. Like how once you’ve lived there and come away you never quite stop pining for the beauty and magic […] You can always imagine going back”

Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer
This was leant to me by my lovely friends equally lovely mother. There are so many points I’d like to mention, but all I can say is - please read this book!!!! There are so many preachy, mind numbing books out there concerning the farming industry that totally turn people off, but this ain’t one of ‘em! Its just the facts about the social, economical and environmental impacts that eating animals has, and I feel its made me me a lot more conscious of the planet and the lovely things that live here :-) 


Spidergwen!! The second coolest superhero costume out right now. ;)

The Truth is a Cave on the Black Mountain, by Neil Gaiman, Illustrated by Eddie Campbell
A book I bought for my Father (and by that I mean I wanted it and also wanted someone to chat about it with, so Paw was the obvious choice), its straight up stunning. The illustrations are bizarrely wonderful and so unusual - they capture perfectly the mystery that surrounds the wonderful Scottish landscape I am fortunate enough to be surrounded by every day. 

Although i didn’t manage to get to the signing at Blackwells, I somehow picked up a signed copy which makes me v happy ʕ •ᴥ• ʔ

(apologies for the lack of pictures! I must remember to edit this post and add some when I am next at my parents abode.)

I have been horrible at keeping up with this, so I’m about to post a couple of wee review of some books I finished that past couple of weeks :-) starting NOW NOW NOW

gyerekek. gyerekek én annyira fáradt vagyok halljátok. egyik pillanatban még noxot hallgattam a másik pillanatban már kész is voltam rajzolni natúró kölkömet énekelni azt az istenverte százszor ölelj méget mert “álmomban így kívántam vigyen az út mindig párban sorsod láncát magamhoz fűztem téged kell hát szereTNEM” MIND TUDJUK mire gondoltam de szent léleknek hála megállítottam magam mielőtt paródiába fulladt volna az egész. paródiába, aminek /talán/ köze lett volna a micsoda nő ez a férfi című számhoz
