A Very Bookish Girl

It sure is worth the wait however, for it’s brilliant, and without a word of a lie it’s one of the best CDs I’ve heard from an Irishman for some time and there’ve been some good ones of late. It’s one of those albums that, in covering many bases, is thus likely to catch the casual listener unawares. This is one of those records in which you can really luxuriate without a trace of guilt. This disc is a real treasure – no exaggeration. Living up to their name, the album’s bursting with swelling anthemic songs about blue collar American life but given a swaggering punkish energy in the manner of Hold Steady. Surging out of the traps with the paradoxical reflective sadness and bursting optimism that is Great Expectations, it shoots straight to the heart of everyman life with its soaring dreams, blunted hopes, desperate romances and the nuts and bolts of love, family, work, life and shouting at the moon. Death’s there on the title track as, riffs sparking, Fallon sings about car crashes and how ‘young boys, young girls ain’t supposed to die on a Saturday night, while cars, girls and highways stand tall for Old White Lincoln, the bittersweet wistful acoustic Here’s Looking At You Kid and triumphant closer The Backseat, songs that could easily have slipped between the covers of Born to Run. If The Boss’ latest has left you a little underwhelmed and pining for those glory days of cars, girls and midnight confessions, then this is just what the doctor ordered. Legends of Folk-Rock Hypertension That there qualifying phrase is inserted into the disc’s title presumably to distinguish it from the wonderful old-timey touring package that did the rounds a year or two back. For it’s a different beast entirely.

Sep 28,  · Following her dating disasters, Emma Nash is back at it with her blogging. But when her best friend Steph seems to prefer her boyfriend to her, and Emma is left alone more often than she wants, she goes on a mission to try and make some more friends.

Getty Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield broke up in , after dating for four years. I don’t know Emma or Andrew although I saw them once at the movies in New York and gave them what I firmly feel was a kind, encouraging smile , but when they broke up, I felt a little sad. Then I was pleasantly surprised. Unlike other young celeb exes, many of whom throw shade or never let the drama die after a breakup, these two have repeatedly proven that it’s humanly possible to have a civil — even lovely!

Now that awards season is ramping up, we’re getting to see their elegance in full swing. It helps that the breakup didn’t come with any nasty press leaks I still don’t know exactly why they split or bad words said about one another. When they’ve been asked about their past relationship, or when the other has come up in interviews, it’s all love.

It is about sharing enthusiasm for the new books added to our shelves — be it physical, ebooks, galleys or borrowed from the library. A large portion of my shelves additions are, well, galleys and I thought of starting with this meme this year to account for all the new galleys I get. Also, maybe it will help me curb my galley requesting a bit? So while looking up potential series-enders to tackle this month, I saw Mila 2.

Redemption on the top of the list I maintain at FictFact. This one is the end of the trilogy, and while I vaguely remember the plot of book 1, Mila 2. Renegade is a huge blur in my mind. Which means — time for a reread! So, I bought the third one to motivate me to read earlier hey, it works sometimes! Also, it will cross off another series from my TBR! Once Upon a Rainbow Vol 2 anthology While this is not technically categorized as YA, it is a romance anthology of fairytale retellings with queer elements, so naturally I clicked on request with no chill.

Fire Song is a contemporary fiction about grief and coming out.


Arguably his most ambitious novel since Being Dead, Harvest is set in a remote farming village in the 18th century. A long way from Arcadia, this is a tale of the trials and tribulations of agricultural slog and struggle in a time when the threat of plague still looms high. Similar in theme, this is a careful and sensitive study of an adolescent girl called Mila, on the brink of adulthood, trying to make sense of the seemingly-incomprehensible world of adult relationships as she undertakes an epic road-trip across America with her father.

Their quest, however, takes on many other dimensions and turns. A sinister murder-mystery plot, which unfolds with panache. Middle C by William H.

We need someone who can understand human beings and what they’ve been through. I don’t think there will be any credibility. Some people are saying they are not going to co-operate with it so it’s not going to work. Sir Martin previously indicated his investigation would be limited to the causes of the deadly fire, why it spread so quickly and how it could be prevented in future. But survivors suggested they were prepared to abandon the process unless the parameters were broadened to consider systemic issues, such as why residents’ concerns about fire safety were allegedly ignored by authorities.

A source said the former Court of Appeal judge was looking to scrutinise issues tracing back to building regulations at the time the block was erected. It is understood the inquiry into the blaze, which killed at least 80 people, will be a “broad interpretation of what caused the fire”, which extends beyond the “physics of what happened”.

Grenfell Tower fire in pictures Sir Martin’s appointment has been met met with concern by survivors, with a group called BME black and minority ethnic Lawyers 4 Grenfell writing to Prime Minister Theresa May to say her choice was “astonishing”. There have previously been no set sentencing guidelines for the offence but the longest sentences were usually for less than ten years. Now the Sentencing Council has moved to tell judges that they can hand out prison terms of up to 18 years in the most serious cases.

The Tory group on Kensington and Chelsea Council nominated Elizabeth Campbell to take over from Nicholas Paget-Brown, who resigned on Friday amid fierce criticism of the council’s response to the Grenfell tragedy. In her first public statement, Mrs Campbell said she was “truly sorry” and pledged to “heal the wounds” in the community. So, no buts, no ifs, no excuses – I am truly sorry.
