Happy Birthday Hans Christian Andersen

This week marks the 212th birthday of Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. His fairy tales have gripped the imaginations of children and adults alike for well over a century. So much so that we keep coming back to them again and again. We just can’t get enough. Perhaps the tale that has captured our hearts the most is Ariel’s, the Little Mermaid who dreams of living on land. With a new live-action film based on Andersen’s original tale to be released later this year, and a Disney live-action film in the pipeline, it seems as if we’ll never lose...

3 Short Story Collections to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day!

It’s a busy time of year for saints. Valentine’s Day was last month, St. David’s Day was at the start of this month, and now St. Patrick’s Day is here. You might not be Irish or of Irish descent, but it’s easy to get swept up in the celebrations. The spirit of St. Patrick’s Day is infectious. Ireland is responsible for many great things that have changed the way we do things- Guinness, color photography, the modern tractor and whiskey distillation- but it’s also the home of some of the world’s greatest writers and poets. If you’re looking for a...

Top 5 | A Handful of Perfect Valentine’s Day Reads

The alternative title for this post is ‘great romantic reads that weren’t written by Jane Austen.’ I had to physically restrain myself from picking all of her novels. I can’t help it, it’s a compulsion. Call me biased, but no one can write a romance like Jane. To make it easier on myself, I decided to pick some alternative romances that don’t necessarily follow the lines of your typical love story. Anyway, Valentine’s day is here and if you’re looking for something to distract you from the box of heart-shaped chocolates sitting in the cupboard, or you’re a bibliophile...

Bookish Musings | 5 TV Shows I Wish Were Books

If there’s one thing in the world that could compete with a bibliophile’s affection for books, it’s probably TV and film adaptions of those books. Let’s face it, over the last few years we’ve been spoiled for choice when it comes to stories making their way onto the small and big screens. TV shows have been gathering particular success. Half the world has been swept up in Jon Snow’s quest to defend the wall from the white walkers, with over 8 million people tuning in to watch the Game Of Thrones Season 6 finale in the US alone. In...

Bookish Musings | Nicole’s New Year’s Reading Goals

A new year is always a good time to try introducing new habits- especially when you’re trying to shake off the post-Christmas blues. I’m not always the best person at starting that new healthy eating plan or exercise routine, mainly because I sort of forget to actually start them (there’s a dusty yoga mat in my room that can testify to that) but I take my reading seriously and in 2017 I want to try and do things a little differently, so these are the 5 reading goals I’m setting myself for this new year: Read a book I...
