One of my favourite books ever, just don’t have time to review it myself and besides this one does an excellent job, I cannot recommend this book enough!
As a child I read a book called Skinny Melon and Me by Jean Ure; written in the form of a diary it chronicled the life of Cherry, whose mother had remarried – much to her disgust – a man named Roland Butter.

I officially could not put this off any longer! When you’re procrastinating about procrastinating you know it’s time to just bite the bullet and get on with it. If you’re still puzzled about my blogs title then take a quick look at the ‘about me’ section and hopefully it will clear things up. For my first review I am going to very briefly talk about an all time favourite of mine; Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. Enjoy!
