Book Review: I Was Born For This by Alice Oseman



” I might be a disappointing student, without many close friends, with a life of mediocrity waiting for me back home – but I will always have this.
In an otherwise mediocre life, we choose to feel passion ” 

Alice Oseman is one of the greatest writers of our time. Big claim, but nonetheless true. Both Solitaire and Radio Silence managed to hit me in ways I hadn’t expected to be hit and yet so subtly. Prepare for a film reference now: her work reminds me of the Cornetto Trilogy co-written by Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, who once described their films as having “a Trojan horse element” in the sense that each one has an honesty and relatability hidden in them. Do you see where I’m going here? Alice’s novels have this same element; you go in expecting a YA mystery, a podcast-based adventure, a boy-band book, but by the time you’ve finished you’re sobbing.
So what this long-winded introduction is trying to say is that I was very excited for this book, and it truly did not disappoint!


What’s it all about? 

“For Angel Rahimi life is about one thing: The Ark – a pop-rock trio of teenage boys who are taking the world by storm. Being part of The Ark’s fandom has given her everything she loves – her friend Juliet, her dreams, her place in the world.

Jimmy Kaga-Ricci owes everything to The Ark. He’s their frontman – and playing in a band with his mates is all he ever dreamed of doing.

But dreams don’t always turn out the way you think and when Jimmy and Angel are unexpectedly thrust together, they find out how strange and surprising facing up to reality can be.”

Movie Shelf Tour

” Film is a mirror of reality and it is a filter ”
– Call Me Be Your Name

These are the shelves that house all of the films I’ve collected and curated over the years; – and there’s a little bit of everything, from Disney to Ghibli, Marvel to Martin McDonagh. I’ve shared book shelf tours a couple of times before on my channel but never went into detail about my collection of films, however, since I’ve been having fun creating my one-minute film reviews it felt apt to share these with you now!

What are your favourite films? Are you a collector of movies?

Screen Shot 2018-02-16 at 11.09.10

February, as always, was a fantastic month for book, TV, and especially film releases!

March was never going to seem as explosive, however, there are some things that I am very excited for!

Netflix’s Re:Mind || An Inconsistent Success


On the 15th of February Netflix added a new show to their selection of Netflix Originals:  Re:Mind, a Japanese mini-series directed by Yusuke Ishida, Yûsuke Koroyasu, and Akira Uchikata. This mystery thriller follows eleven female students who, on the night before graduation, find themselves shackled to a large dining room table in a room filled with items inciting them to remember events from their pasts, stating “everything reminds you of something”.  Intrigued by this set-up I decided to give it a watch and record my thoughts episode by episode, excluding the thirteenth ‘special episode’. So, let us begin! 

Episode 1
I’m loving the premise of this series; the simplicity of shooting in one location (so far) is such a wonderful idea and allows for the set design to be so rich and deep, with all the candles, animal head wall mounts, and suits of armour playing into the typical horror tropes. However, even though this episode dedicates itself to setting the scene, I feel like I don’t know any of the characters and it was only in the final minute that I was provided with a hook. Still, I have a feeling that this will only get better.

Reflecting on Lumiere London 2018 | The epitomy of organised chaos

With a suggested duration time of “More than 3 hours,” it is unsurprising that it’s also advised to tackles this year’s Lumiere London Light Festival over two days. I myself, with a willing friend, managed to make it to almost all the installations in the Mayfair area, around half of the installations in the West End area, and spotted a few of the Westminster & Victoria ones too. And all in under 5 hours – it’s safe to say our feet were aching the next day! Whether you went to the Festival this year, went last year, or plan to visit next year (or simply just fancy looking at the pictures), you can watch my video above and read my thoughts on the event below.

What is Lumiere London?
Lumiere London is an art festival taking place over four evenings at the start of the year that showcases the architecture of London city through light installations designed by artists from around the globe. This year is the second time Lumiere was brought to London after a successful run last year, and its growing popularity over the UK.

BBC’s Requiem Review | Addictive, not memorable



“Do you believe the dead can communicate with us?”

With BBC’s Requiem, starring Lydia Wilson, Joel Fry, Tara Fitzgerald Claire Rushbrook and more, came the promise of a TV horror series to rival The Living and The Dead, maybe even some of the wonderfully dark Inside No. 9 episodes (yes, I am thinking of the season 1 finale The Harrowing!). Often does the channel present us with paranormal dramas and horrors, most of which send shivers down our spines, but rarely have us leaping behind our sofas with fright. Having read the set up for Requiem I desperately wanted this series to be the one to do exactly that, however its story and scares play too often in piano when they needed to be forte!
