Hello, lovely readers!
It seems like a long time since I sat down and wrote a blog post; things have been quite manic around here! I thought I’d catch you up on all that I’ve been up to in this post and hopefully fill you in.
What I’ve Been Up To
It’s exam season at the moment, so of course my brain is floating around in a world of revision and my hands are aching from writing constantly for hours. At the time of writing this, I have 13 exams left to go and have done 7 – I feel like I’m actually making a dent in them now! I can’t wait to finish, but I only have a month left now. I’m sure it will go quickly! Good luck to everyone else doing exams at the moment!
I also had my last day at school on Thursday. It’s crazy to think it’s all coming to an end, but it’s nice to be on study leave now and have more time to revise (and read. Did you think I wouldn’t take advantage of the extra reading time?)
One of my favourite things at the moment is ICE CREAM. I cannot get enough of it! How can you resist when it looks like this anyway..?

What I’ve Been Reading
Mainly, lots of revision guides. Being so all over the place with exams has meant that I’ve hit a tiny reading slump and am reading about fifty books at once, which is never helpful. However, there are a few books I’ve been enjoying:
- Girl Up by Laura Bates, which is a great feminist read for teens. I’ll be doing a full review once I’ve finished it because I’ve loved it so much. Highly recommended from me!
- Outlander by Diana Gabaldon – I’ve been meaning to read it for YEARS but picked it up on a whim last night and I am hooked. I’ll hopefully finish this over the summer!
- Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf – I have no idea when I’ll finish this, even though it’s very good and I’m liking it, but it’s not one of my priorities at the moment. It’s the kind of book that takes ages to read just one page and that isn’t helping with my reading slump at the moment!

That ice cream looks delicious! Well I have just finished exams myself on Thursday, so although I would be dancing in the joys of books *cries*, sadly its not has been like that. After reading so many exam revision-y stuff my brain is overloaded, so I want to read one of the books I already started last month (I think there is 4 in total or maybe 5?). But as you know plans never go the way you want them to so I have no idea :/

Revising for exams is the worst. Though it makes up for it afterwards when you feel immensely proud of yourself when good results come back. I hope your exams go well 🙂

Ah good luck, Lucy! I finished my exams Thursday and it was the best feeling walking out of the exam room knowing that I was on holiday and could read as much as I wanted now! ;D You’re almost there!
I’m also LOVING ice cream at the moment – especially the Cornetto chocolate caramel ice cream! <3

Best of luck for you Lucy! Ice cream is definitely the best studying partner!

I hope all your exams are going okay and I wish you the best of luck with the ones that are still to come. I’m also currently doing my GCSE exams and am on study leave. I’m mainly looking forward to the long summer holidays where I can read all the books and write all the blog posts. X

Your blog is impressive, the entire piece of information really helped me in finding the relevant knowledge that i was seeking for. It cleared my entire doubts where i was really stuck.
