What’s Up: February

I thought it would be nice to put a short little post together to let you know what’s going on, and what kind of reviews you can expect to read in February. (It might also help me to be more organised and keep up with my plans…)

So, I still owe you a review of Venetia by Georgette Heyer and The Guest Cat by Takashi Hiraide; I have a draft for a movie “review” (or rather musing) about A Few Good Men (1992), and I’m compiling a break-up song list for Valentine’s Day.

I also have a pretty little list of books I want to read and review this month, partly for my own enjoyment, partly for my research topic at uni.

Currently reading:

  • The Purple Revolution by Nigel Farage
  • Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke


  • Making Faces by Amy Harmon
  • Ride with Me by Thomas B. Costain (research material)
  • The Creevey Papers by Thomas Creevey (research material)
  • A Dog’s Way Home by W. Bruce Cameron
  • Wellington’s Hidden Heroes by Veronica Baker-Smith (research material)
  • Frederica by Georgette Heyer
  • A Close Run Thing by Allen Mallinson (research material)
  • + if anything else takes my fancy

Moreover, my Insta account terribly needs a consistent style, and I’m thinking about switching to greyscale images for bookish posts, and staying colourful with pictures about Bonnie and miscellaneous subjects. But that’s still under consideration.


Besides, the university semester is going to start next week, which fills me with unimaginable loads of excitement and happiness, not to mention energy. I can’t wait to reunite with all the people, read assignments, etc. Yeah, yeah, liar, liar, pants on fire.

BUT I am sure that blogging will prove to be a good way to relieve unversity-induced stress.


On a happier note, I got my hair cut last week, so even if everything else goes awry, I will at least look like a human being instead of some kind of hairy monster from a horror movie. That’s something, right?

What have you been up to lately?
Is there any kind of post you’d like to see on the blog?
