Every year I tell myself that I won’t do resolutions, that I won’t follow everyone else and that I’ll make goals in the Spring instead. But then I realise that I actually enjoy setting goals in the January. It gives me something to focus on after the rush and craziness of Christmas and New Year … More New Years Resolutions ’16
After neglecting this blog for a very long time, I decided a new direction was in order for me to enjoy blogging again. The focus on two aspects of my life made blogging too rigid, which was probably the reason for the long absence. On a whim, I’ve purchased the domain name literarymermaid.com and redirected … More From Books to Films is now Literary Mermaid
You’ll have to excuse my long absence. I’ve been busy with uni work and although I’ve been watching a lot of films and reading just as many books, I haven’t had the time to sit down and write about it. I have finished two of my three classes and the last one is done on Thursday. … More Hellboy: The First 20 Years
Happy February! I’ve definitely made the most of the whole ‘buy as many books as you want’ goal for 2014 because I’ve ended up with seven already. I have read six though so I’m doing pretty well. As you can see, I’ve stuck with the young adult theme – apart from the bottom one. I … More Books Purchased in January
I’ve started off the year on a mad rush to read as much young adult fiction as I can fit in and I have loved every minute of it. I haven’t purposely raced through them but I found myself reading most books within 3-4 days just because I was enjoying them so much. According to … More January Reads
Yes, I know we’re nearly over with January already and I’m only just getting round to this but at least I’m doing it at all. My blogging record recently isn’t much to live up for but I have a new plan that seems to be working. I mean, this is the third blog in the … More 2014 – Here We Go!
We’re over half way through January now and I have yet to post my goals concerning reading and films for this year, nor look back over 2013 to see how I got on. I thought I would do the latter first before moving on to this year. So lets start with books shall we! Read … More Reviewing Last Years Goals
This post has been a long time coming. I’ve been super busy with essay deadlines recently and especially this past week. I finally have a day where I don’t have to worry about a deadline looming so I thought I’d better catch up on myself since I have a few posts that I want to … More Christmas Book Haul… in January!
My book buying ban hasn’t gone very well at all this year. I can’t help myself when I see a pretty cover, or a favourite author has a new book or I just find a book that sounds even slightly interesting. Its a habit I really need to stop in the New Year because I … More November/December Book Purchases
I’ve had every intention of writing a blog for the past couple of months but I never realised it had been almost four months since I’d written something. University has been kicking my bum this year. Third year is definitely a big change but I also think my mind set is different this year. I’ve … More Still Here. Still Reading. And Watching.
