Books That Should Be Made Into Movies

When two people read the same book, although the story is the same, the way they picture the characters and the events in their minds are different, which makes reading a book a unique experience to everyone. When I watch a film based on a book I think of it as another person’s experience of the book. Although it’s the same story. the characters might look different and the events might not play as I pictured them to, and I find that interesting. Here is a list of books that I think should be made into films.

5 Myths About Introverts

There are a lot of myths about introverts that people believe to be true. Being an introvert myself, I’ve had people assume things about me and a lot of people have even told me they were put off talking to me for a while because they didn’t understand. I understand that a lot of this is just a lack of understanding so I thought I’d share some of the most common assumptions I’ve noticed and clear things up!

It took me a good few years to realise that I had been trying to get over writer’s block completely wrong.

Plan With Me: March 2019 Bullet Journal Setup

I was a bit late to the party when it came to buying and starting a bullet journal, but it’s helped me become a lot more organised (plus it’s so much fun to design)! I’m not particularly artsy, apart from when it comes to pixel art, so the titles and layouts have never been anything special because I just can’t get anything to look good. I get a lot of inspiration from Pinterest and Instagram, and I’ve recently started to make my pages look a tiny bit more exciting.
