Astoria (a book review)

Astoria, by Peter Stark.

Subtitle: Astor and Jefferson’s Lost Pacific Empire – A Tale of Ambition and Survival on the Early America Frontier.

If there’s anything a lengthy subtitle teaches us, it’s that the book is probably non-fiction. 652 more words

Elle's Reading Challenge - Reading Like Rory

I’m a big fan of Gilmore Girls, I have all seven series on DVD which I have watched repeatedly, both with my mum (we sing the theme tune together) and solo during times of insomnia, crisis or boredom – there’s something incredibly comforting about the general lack of action coupled with the obscure, pop culture references, relateable characters and universal themes that make it one of my favourite ever TV shows. 344 more words
