Scar Tissue – Anthony Kiedis ?>

Scar Tissue – Anthony Kiedis

I finally got to tick this book off my ‘to read’ list after years of saying ‘I’ll will get to that one day.’ I’m so glad I did. I’ve read a couple of autobiographies lately which pushed me further to read this one. I didn’t know much about the Red Hot Chilli Peppers before reading this book, other than a few of their songs and that they were incredibly famous. A friend of mine had a copy and gave it…

The Happiness Project – Gretchen Rubin

I got given this book for my birthday and when I first picked it up I thought ‘oh man is this a self-help book my friend bought me because she thinks I’m crazy?’ But once I opened it and got started I quickly realised that was not the case at all (although she still might think I’m nuts).

I first read this book when I was in year 12 for my English class, I have since read it about twice more. The author grew up in Cambodia during the Khmer Rouge regime and has told her story through the eyes of her 5 – 9 year old self, this makes it ‘easy’ to read as the language and prose…

If you know me, you know that I LOVE reading. It’s about as necessary to me as breathing, if I go too long without reading something I start to feel anxious and tense, I think it’s a kind of therapy. I don’t drink coffee, I don’t smoke, I don’t drink (much) and I don’t take any substances, prescribed or otherwise, but what I am addicted to is reading, and when I get onto something really good it just overtakes my…
