Please don’t read this and expect that it will be a well thought out and well-reasoned review. It definitely won’t be. Also it will be full of spoilers, you’ve been warned.

Beyoncé: Lemonade Review

It took me until this album to properly love Beyoncé. Which is not to say I haven’t liked her music before, or haven’t appreciated her talent. I just haven’t felt immediately invested in anything she’s put out until now, but I was super intrigued once I found out that she had made a visual album.

Zayn Malik: Mind of Mine Review

Book Bite: Sharp Objects

Title: Sharp Objects Author: Gillian Flynn Year published: 2006 Rating: Only read once. Why I read it: I picked it up at the airport this Christmas for two reasons: 1) I have recently watched Gone Girl and I was intrigued to see what else Flynn had written, and 2) flights are exponentially more fun when I have something to read….
