No, I’m not plotting the downfall of anyone. You can all take a breath.
This year marks the 123rd Birthday of the extraordinary, one of a kind, crime novelist Agatha Christie. To mark this momentous year, Waterstones have created an, if I may say so myself, ingenious competition for all you undercover detectives out there. A ‘whodunnit’ for the modern age.
Welcome to the Blogger Murder Mystery.
…are a million to one he said.
So last night I went to watch Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds (the musical adaptation of H.G Wells novel) at the cinema with one of my friends. We wanted to go and see it live, but didn’t manage to get tickets. Might as well go for the next best thing!
Some of you may be thinking “Glastonbury is 3 months away. V Festival isn’t until August?!” However, if like me, you are what society calls a ‘book-aholic’, then you will surely know that I, of course, am talking about World Book Day!
While browsing Amazon for some holiday reading this summer I found this book. A great sounding synopsis and only 99p. What a steal!
Joseph Evans’ debut novel hits in all the right spots. A piece for all ages, genders and genre lovers, ‘A City of Falling Sky’ really delivers.
Right I’ve set myself a challenge, this is very exciting. I have decided so that I can voice my opinions, and you can get to know a bit more about me, I am going to post my ‘Top 5 of the month’ at the end of each month. By ‘Top 5’ I mean top 5 films, albums, places I’ve visited, books (if I can read that many in a month :P) and hopefully I’ll show a bit of a variety when it comes to my choices. I’ve already tried to listen to some new things whilst doing work and it’s working out pretty well so lets carry on in that direction 🙂
I’m also, sometime soon, going to post my Top 10 of 2010, I’ve got some good ones I think (y). So that and my Top 5’s from January will be up sometime before the end of the weekend!
So the reason why I haven’t been posting much recently is because I’ve had exams in January and so I’ve been spending most of my time revising for them. But they’re all done now! Had my last one on Wednesday, it was IT. I think it went alright but I guess we’ll have to see in March won’t we. The only problem now though is that our teachers have decided that now the exams are over, they’re going to pile homework and coursework on us all at once! Aren’t they lovely 🙂 So I might not be able to post as much as I hope to but I’ll certainly try!
I have some new things that I can talk to you about. Written some reviews of some albums that I’ve listened to recently so I’ll post them up some time soon. Since 2011 started I’ve been listening to some artists that I’ve never listened to before and never thought I would listen to but they’re all really good! Also got some films that I’ve seen recently and a new book series that I’m almost finished so I’ll have quite a bit for you to read 🙂
I’m going to try and vary it for you a bit though so it’s not all about films, music and books. I have a trip down South coming up so you’ll definately hear about that and something more personal has happened that I’m waiting for results on so you’ll be notified of that aswell. Don’t worry it’s not really bad, I’m hoping (Y) 😀
