Book reviews - "Sister, Missing" and "Legend" - plus a mini-story written by me

So I'd decided that whenever I'd finish reading a book I'd write a review on it here... well, that didn't happen. I finished reading Sister, Missing over a week ago and I still haven't written a review. I just... had other ideas for posts that kept taking priority, so I never got round to it. So! I'm going to write a review on it right now. Wish me luck...

Sister, Missing by Sophie McKenzie is the sequel to Girl, Missing. It's set two years after the events of the previous book. I absolutely loved it! Full of action and twists and turns, the action didn't stop for a second in the whole book, I literally couldn't put it down. It's starts off when Lauren's (the main character) eight-year-old sister disappears while they are on holiday together on the beach. I can't really say any more without revealing parts of the plot, and I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but I'll just say that it's so good. I think I enjoyed Sister, Missi…

A good long rant about gossip magazines and some advice for my fellow young female humans

I'm preparing my Spanish GCSE exam this year as my parents are from Spain and I speak fluent Spanish, so the exam will be easy and it'll be like an introduction to exams for when I take the rest of my GCSEs next year. I still have to prepare it, though, because I have to know what the topics that are going to come up are and more or less what the exam's going to be like. I'm a little nervy about my speaking exam - I may know how to speak Spanish but I'm, ahem, generally not a very confident speaker, especially in front of people I don't know. When someone puts me on the spot and tells me to talk about a particular thing my brain just freezes and I don't say anything other than, "umm... errr..." Which is a bit worrying considering the exam is going to be a type of interview. I guess I just need to practise what I'm going to say a lot and if I'm really confident I know what I'm doing, I'll probably be fine. Fingers crossed.

Anyway, w…

A series of random, unconnected anecdotes from my childhood

First thing I want to say today is a few days ago, the lovely Young and Enquiring invited me to write a guest post on her blog. And I did. You can check it out here if you want to.

Anyway, on to the main part of this post!

Nothing interesting has happened in my life since the last post, apart from my cat bringing in another mouse early yesterday morning. So, since I have nothing better to write about, I'm going to make this post a collection of anecdotes from my early childhood.

Let me just say now, please don't judge me from what I was like from when I was a kid. Trust me, I've evolved. A LOT.

I'm going try and make this in chronological order, starting from when I was very young and moving forwards. However I don't have that many real memories from when I was any younger than three or four, so we'll see how this goes.

One of my earliest memories is trying to sneak into my dad's office. I wasn't allowed into my dad's office because there were all s…
