Book Review: Rooftoppers By Katherine Rundell

Before we begin, I would like to thank the person that recommended this to me. Hopefully you are still looking at my blog every now and then. I miss you so much!

With that aside, on to the book review. I love doing my bookish rambles! I find them very comforting to write, and I love when you come back to me with your opinions on the book! Today I would like to review ‘Rooftoppers’. I read this book in about three days. It certainly hooked me!

“I do, I’m afraid, understand books far more readily than I understand people. Books are easy to get along with” – Charles, Rooftoppers

In the third page, I found this quote. It is very relatable for a bookworm and introvert like me!

The overall book is an easy read, with some really beautiful ideas implemented into it. I especially love the character of Sophie, she seems very strong and capable. It reminds me a lot of Hetty Feather, if you have ever read that series. What I really love about her is the way she ignores social normalities. With it being set back a while, there is no equality in gender and women are still perceived as housewives: incapable of persuing a career.

Fish Tram Chips | Travel Diary & Review

Yes, another one! I did tell you in my previous post that we had many cafe pittstops. I couldn’t possibly go to the seaside without getting fish and chips. We can find them in land and across the country but there’s nothing better than when you are next to the sea!

This particular cafe is called Fish Tram Chips because it is next to the tram which takes you up to the Great Orme (I will talk about the Orme in a later blog post).

I hope it doesn’t come as a surprise to you that I ordered fish and chips! There was a beefy menu but I wanted to go for the original.

Café & Culture | Travel Diary & Review

If you have been keeping up with my Instagram then you will be aware of my visit to Llandudno, Wales from the 15th-16th April 2019. I must admit, I have been very productive and have scheduled up until the middle of May (though it is only the 18th April). Sorry for the lateness of this post but I hope you enjoy it, all the same.

When we arrived in Llandudno this was the first place we went to. We had quite a few pitstops at cafés! It was very cosy and had a retro vibe which, of course, pleased me very much.

I didn’t take the best photos due to my fear of being noticed, and weirdly stared at.

Plastic

 

Try and smile,

When you look at the sea.

Try and smile at the waves,

When they’re blowing plastic at me.

We have no more chances,

To save the Earth.

We’d have to rebuild,

Straight from its birth.

Anglican Cathedral Liverpool | My Experience

Friday 21st February 

Today with my brother and mum I went to the Anglican Cathedral, Liverpool. I would first like to say to you how amazing it was to experience it all! The architecture is amazing and throughout the cathedral there were presentations and displays, telling you all about how it was built and why, who, when.

In the photograph above it is showing the bells of the cathedral. We paid around £5:00 each to go up the main tower and view the city below. You can view the bottom buildings and main part of the cathedral for free. But as the offer was on to go up, we decide we would (for photographs sake).
