What I thought of It Chapter 2

Stephen King's IT is one of my all time favourite stories. I saw the original adaption 10 years ago when I was 13 so Part 2 of the remake coming out now felt like I went full circle. Stephen King is one of my favourite authors, and my favourite book of his has to be… Continue reading What I thought of It Chapter 2

My Complicated Relationship with Spider-man

With Spider-man Far From Home out, now is a perfect time to talk about my complicated relationship with Spider-man. I was iffy about seeing Spider-man Homecoming, and Far From Home for a long time, and there's a few reasons for that. What's quite an unpopular opinion of mine is that Andrew Garfield was my favourite… Continue reading My Complicated Relationship with Spider-man

What I thought of The Crimes of Grindelwald

Last week I wrote a pretty harsh post about Harry Potter, and was relieved that others too think the Boy Who Lived should finally die. When in the cinema to see the new Fantastic Beasts, it actually did feel like Harry Potter was dying. We went the day after the release, and the theater was… Continue reading What I thought of The Crimes of Grindelwald

Review: MCRX

I haven't been reviewing books lately because I decided to re-read the whole Harry Potter series. I write about Harry Potter so much that reviewing the series seems pointless, but I did finally get to tick "Find Out my Patronus" off my Bucket List thanks to Pottermore. Mine is a ginger cat, (so basically Crookshanks?),… Continue reading Review: MCRX

Book Review: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

I actually have a piece about this on Oxgyen.ie but thought I would share my opinion on Cursed Child here too becauseĀ I haven't blogged in awhile and I don't want any of you to think I stopped reading because I'm always reading something. I'm actually re-reading the original series at the moment, I'm currently on… Continue reading Book Review: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Book Review: The Lost Continent

Once again I'm gonna be reviewing Bill Bryson. This isn't a sponsored blog post (nothing is) but a part of me wishes it was, because man, this is free advertisement and I'm a student. I'm joking, of course, if I was writing for money I wouldn't be writing at all. While an American native (Des… Continue reading Book Review: The Lost Continent

Book Review: Procession of the Dead

I adored Darren Shan in my teenage years, to say I was obsessed with the Saga of Darren Shan would be an understatement and overĀ 5 years later I don't believe I've recovered from The Demonata series. Unfortunately, as most of Shan's work is aimed at younger readers, I came to out grow it. However, all… Continue reading Book Review: Procession of the Dead

Book Review: Needful Things

It's been a while since my last book review, college work and life have been preventing me from reading as much as I want to, but in a few more days I'm done with college for Christmas and then I can read to my heart's content! For me Stephen King is a fail safe author,… Continue reading Book Review: Needful Things

Coffee Quest: Best and Worst coffee in UL

When the First Seven Week's posted a list of the 20 places to get coffee on campus I took it as a personal challenge, so I pulled fellow Journalism and New Media student Liam (https://winterishereblog.wordpress.com/), and occasionally HPSS student Andrew, with me on a coffee quest to try all of them. We added a few… Continue reading Coffee Quest: Best and Worst coffee in UL
