New Habits for Better Mornings

I am without a doubt a morning person, I don’t like to sleep in because otherwise I feel like half the day has been wasted and, right now, daylight is in short supply. However I am a writer and like many writers i am most inspired at night so sometimes find myself writing into the…

To Read Before 2016

   I have no idea why but my reading game has been completely off this year. Maybe it’s due to the stress of A levels or being too obsessed with pinterest before bed but I haven’t read nearly as much as I wanted to this year.  That is about to change as I have 8…

My Holiday Reading List

I haven’t been able to pick up a book since before my exams. The stress of school got in the way of one of my favourite hobbies – getting lost in a world of prose. Today I have a list of 10 great reads that are perfect for the summer: nothing too deep, but great…

Panic

Reading the blurb of this book made it seem like ANOTHER hunger games type novel – not something I really wanted to read. But nevertheless I picked it up an gave it a go. It’s a shame I, along with others, thought of this book like this; it really deserves to be given a chance…

Bunker

I really don’t know what to say about this one. It’s difficult to sum it up but if I don’t do it now, I never will. Have you ever read a story that has you so confused but on the edge of your seat and completely freaked out the whole way through; only to be…

5 Quotes

I like to think of myself as a hopeless romantic… …But one that is like it with quotes, not relationships. I don’t know what it is but I love quotes; from epigraphs, to gnomic literature and aphorisms. Any quotes I find and like I will write down in this adorable little notebook which I carry…

Looking Back: Summer hopefuls, Autumn reads

If you can remember as far back as the start of October, I wrote about the books that I would read this Autumn. If you can remember even FURTHER back, then you’ll remember my Summer Hopefuls blog post, where I talked about the books I was hoping to read this summer too. Lets see how…

The Maze Runner

Reading this book turned out to be a unique experience. I bought this book about 6 months ago at a time when I was having a dystopian novel overload. I don’t know why but I was never able to actually pick this book up. To be perfectly host, the only reason I picked it up…

Paper VS Film: Gone Girl

A while back on my blog, I wrote an article about reading books rather than watching films, settle and snooze, it basically just put across my opinion of watching a film rather than reading the book it was based on. Also a while back, I read the book Gone Girl – hugely raved about and,…

Gone Girl

Hello everyone! I am currently sunbathing and loving life in Dubai but still want all you lovely readers of jessiecrescent involved. Have a great week! I had three motives to start reading Gone Girl: I wanted to see the film and always promise myself I’ll read the book before the film In Creative Writing we…
