Review of Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick

Welcome to my review of Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick!WHAT THEY SAY:A collection of humorous autobiographical essays by the Academy Award-nominated actress and star of Up in the Air and Pitch Perfect."I'm excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I'd like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude and pettiness and the frequency with which I embarrass myself. And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well educated and accomplished comedy writers, I'm very, very funny on Twitter, according to BuzzFeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea. Quick question: Are run-on sentences still frowned upon? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit!" (Anna Kendrick)Anna Kendrick's autobiographical collection of essays amusingly recounts memorable moments throughout her life, from her middle-class u…

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for The Summer of Second Chances by Maddie Please!!! This book looks so gorgeous and I'm really excited to have a special post from Maddie!!Guest Post from Maddie Please The Joy of Building.The second thing we wanted to do in our new home was knock a wall down. Not just for the fun of it but because we wanted to change two small rooms (kitchen, dining room) into one.That sounds easy doesn’t it? Knock a wall down. Ha! The work of a moment! Lend me a sledgehammer and I will be done by the weekend.Not so.The builders started work at the beginning of March to create a dustproof door between the kitchen and the rest of the house. (FYI - there is no such thing as a dustproof door. It’s a decoration)A couple of days later the first of 6 skips arrived. Plus a blue portaloo, which looked as though the Tardis had set down outside our house. #discreet?The builders were a jolly bunch who liked Cadbury’s Mini Rolls, tea, and Fox’s Chocolate biscuits. They di…

Another Year in England, Another Yearly Wrap Up

Well then! Today marks my 17th (SEVENTEENTH!!!) move-iversary! I have lived in England for 17 years today. That is madness!This year has been the most eventful of my life! It has been the happiest, most secure and fun year I have experienced in my 39 (nearly 40!!) years. I have loads of photos to share with you. Most of you have shared the past year with me through my blog posts but if you haven't, here are the highlights.In June last year Steve and I got together. In July I got my 4th tattoo, my 3D butterfly with SW on the bottom. In August we got engaged. In October we got our Pomeranian puppy Bella who is basically our first born child and we adore her. In January we got 2 baby bunnies and in April (I think) we got our Pomeranian boy Magic who we adore just as much! My brother and his wife welcomed a beautiful baby boy, Declan in November. We had our first Christmas together and it was magical! Since then, we've just been living our life, laughing and smiling every day. Ste…

Welcome to my Stop on the Blog Tour for Blood Bank by the fantabulous Zoe Markham!



What They Say:
Benjamin is a programmer moonlighting as a security guard at Dystopia, a seedy club that caters to the down-and-outs, the desperates, the addicts. He's been building his reputation, saving for a way out - but when he rescues a young woman from the nearby estate, he may just have stepped too far out of line...

Lucy is ordinary; a girl with a deadbeat boyfriend, a normal life and college studies. But when her world takes an odd twist, she starts to wonder about the people she's meeting, the situations she's in, the odd aversions and attacks happening around her. They're just coincidences...aren't they?

And Zack is in deep trouble. He's losing his girlfriend, drowning in debt, and has dwindling job prospects - and that's not the worst of it. His debt is to people who won't ever forget it, and who want the things closest to Zack's heart: his blood - and his li…
