Literary Come Dine With Me

One of my guilty pleasures is without a doubt Come Dine With Me. I watched it every evening when I came home from university, and even though I’ve left the country I still manage to catch a few every now and then (thank you, You Tube.)

With Christmas coming, too, it’s the ideal time to start thinking about what kind of spread you’ll lay out for the big feast.

Be sure to hit the follow button though, you really won’t regret it with these. Of course, the lovely Steph who runs this tag should already be on your follow lists.

Favourite YA friendships

It’s World Friendship Day today, so I can’t think of any better time to look back on some of the best friendships I’ve seen in YA fiction.

It’s not exactly a secret that the friendships you make in your teenage years can be among the most influential in your life. You’re growing as a person and finding out who you are, so having a bunch of people around you who are also making the same discovery can be a huge weight off.
