I’m not really a boxer, and if I was, I definitely wouldn’t box books. I’m just a one-time Veterinary Medicine student, now studying Neuroscience in the big smoke (London) and hoping to forge my way into science communication.
I love books. I grew up shy and, whenever possible, was to be found under my duvet with a mini-torch and a book, ruining my eyesight. But then something happened, time started going faster, and suddenly I had looming coursework deadlines, work experience, exercise and social soirees over-running my life. Books were sidelined.
But they have made a comeback. I have rediscovered the delights of curling up in bed after a long, day with a cup of sleepy tea and a good book. I’ve found that reading on the tube is an excellent way to fill those empty 20 minute journeys and that, as entertaining as Made in Chelsea is, sometimes a book relaxes you in a way that a flashing screen and blaring voices cannot. So I have reclaimed the book and this blog is my journey through them.
I hope that you enjoy my musings and find my opinions a little helpful. If you agree with my reviews and feel like massaging my ego, please leave a comment. If you disagree, please comment too, I’d love to shoot you down (I joke, of course…I’d love to hear your differing thoughts!)
