Filed under: Films and books — Tags: , — charcoalfeathers @ 3:45 am

1. A Rag, a Bone and a Hank of Hair by Nicholas Fisk I remember my teacher in year six reading this story to us, but we never finished it. I’m desperate to find out what happens.
2. A Necklace of Raindrops by Joan Aiken and Jan Pienkowski This is a book from my childhood. It was absolutely my favourite book ever, but I’ve never been able to find it since I left school
3. How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff I’ve heard good things about this book, so I’d like to read it πŸ™‚
4. Happy After Ever by Adele Geras I read this book a few years ago, and it began my longing to live romantically in Paris for a summer.
5. Troy by Adele Geras I loved Happy After Ever and would love to read Troy, especially as I’ve heard such great things about it πŸ™‚
6. Amsterdam by Ian McEwan In my English class we are studying Enduring Love by the same author and we read extracts from some of his other books. Amsterdam just sounded like an interesting book to read πŸ™‚
7. The Child in Time by Ian McEwan Once again, sounds good.
8. The Cement Garden by Ian McEwan Interesting.
9. Black Dogs by Ian McEwan Also would like to read πŸ™‚
10. My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult I think it’s a really fascinating story and I’d love to read it.
11. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov I’m curious about this book.
12. Bridget Jones’ Diary by Helen Fielding I love the film, so I think it’s only right that I read the book.
13. The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger It seems like such an iteresting book to read!
14. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne The film looks really good, but I want to read the book before I see the film.
15. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon I’ve heard such good things about this book but I’ve never read it. It’s about time that I did.

The 10th Kingdom

Filed under: Films and books — Tags: , , , — charcoalfeathers @ 12:37 pm

Years ago on Sky One there was a show called
The 10th Kingdom and I loved it.

Wikipedia will explain it better than me. But it was really my favourite show when I was eight.

The reason for this post, is that I’ve heard they are thinking of doing a sequel. It would be called House of Wolves.

That is a link outlining the plot of House of Wolves. I would absolutely love a sequel. I’ve been hoping for one for years!

Here is a petition to try and convince a sequel to be made, even though I don’t really think the sequel will ever happen.

Still, it would be a dream come true if there really was a sequel πŸ™‚

Hello world

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — charcoalfeathers @ 3:15 pm

Hello dear online blogging world.

I guess the obvious thing to do is to introduce myself.

I am a sixteen year old girl living just outside of London. I’m doing A Levels, I work in my local Sainsburys, and I’m fairly eccentric at times. I want to set up a blog to talk about my life, because well I’m vain so I can πŸ™‚

I will start to post and set up this blog a bit more in the following weeks. Until then,
