Can women really wear what they want?

About two weeks ago a story about a young woman who was asked to either leave a flight or cover up went viral for very good reason. The 21-year old in question was flying from Birmingham to Tenerife in a plain black crop top, and high waisted orange pants.

Reviewing Childhood: Crash Bandicoot

Crash N Sane trilogy was released in 2017 and was a remake of the first 3 crash games; Crash Bandicoot, Cortex Strikes Back, and Warped. I adored the crash cames as a kid. I hope they eventually re-release Twinsanity, and Wrath of Cortex which was my favourite. I have clear memories of playing the first… Continue reading Reviewing Childhood: Crash Bandicoot

I was sad at the thought of no longer having it to… Continue reading Should the Boy Who Lived finally die?

Before reviewing the book I need to explain why I was hesitant to read something by John Green. The… Continue reading Book Review: Turtles All the Way Down

Book Review: Midsummer’s Bottom

I was delighted to get a review copy of Midsummer's Bottom before it comes out. It's certainly a departure from Darren Dash/Shan's usual work such as Sunburn and and Procession of the Dead. Midsummer's Bottom is a comedy about small town actors who stage Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream once a year, on the solstice. What… Continue reading Book Review: Midsummer’s Bottom

Book Review: The Surface Breaks

I was very excited to get my hands on Louise O'Neill's feminist retelling of The Little Mermaid, The Surface Breaks, so much that I finished it in a day. O'Neill introduces us to the patriarchal mer-world ruled by the Sea King, the father of our protagonist. Gaia, also known as Muirgean, also known as Grace,… Continue reading Book Review: The Surface Breaks
