Hello all and welcome to the update for the week beginning 15/10/18!
As you would have seen on social media, I decided not to post anything last week. This was due to a loss in the family, which made me feel very unmotivated and emotionally drained. There is still pain but I am back and ready to get into some content for this week!
For me, the best way to heal is to do the things I love, and for me that is reading, writing and losing myself in stories. There was also some stress regarding some university assignments but I’m so close to finishing that I’m too excited to let it hold me down!
As we edge closer to me being free, you’ll start to notice a few changes on here. From structure changes to the amount of content that is posted, it’s all positive and means that all of you get more opportunities to ignite the stories within you!
Now let’s get into this update!
As mentioned above, there will be some changes happening on the site. The first noticeable one will be the amount of content that is posted. Although I’m still busy, I can start to feel my time becoming a little freer with each assignment I submit!
Oh, and on the video game reviews, we’re still waiting on a few technological updates. However, I aim on having that content out very soon!
I am on a mission to get the whole Tomorrow series review out this week for you all to enjoy! So, keep an eye out for this as I hopefully will be able to get this out.
When: Wednesday or Thursday
You must be thinking ‘come on, Charlotte, where’s this next instalment about this em and en rule you speak of’? Well, never fear because we will be seeing this early this week!
We’ll also have ‘Let’s talk about queer theory!’ out for Vlog Friday and I am determined for it to be out and ready for you to watch on Friday!
Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult
Due to a tonne of university work as well as wanting to get as much content out to you this week, I probably won’t be reading much. However, I was able to get through quite a bit of this last week and the week before, so when I jump back into it I’ll be done in no time!
This Side of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
The Rider by Tim Krabbe
I Can’t Stop Jacking Off by Mr Socially Awkward
And, it has finally been added to the list:
The Legends of Eve: A Warriors Past by Anonymous.
I can’t wait to do all these reviews for you to read, and I hope you’re excited to let each story ignite within you!
As you would know from the previous updates, we’re jumping into ‘What is a… Full stop?’ next!
And, on the vlog front, we’ll be looking into the next literary theory on my list, which is ecocriticism! After that, I think we’ll jump out of literary theories for a little bit and start exploring some other very exciting content, so keep an eye out for that!
Books to read
The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
There was an awesome book sale at my work two weeks ago, which means I now have even more books (it’s not an addiction, I swear!). Anyway, due to buying a whole bunch of books that I haven’t read before, I’m going to go straight into them and take you on a fun journey as I discover what these stories hold!
And that’s it for this week. Remember to ignite the story and I’ll see you again soon!
