Currently I'm...#8

Yesterday, I finished reading Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro which I've actually been meaning to read for years. I read about 100 pages a couple of years ago then put it down for some unknown reason but I've recently re-discovered my love for the film adaptation which made me want to pick the book back up. It's beautifully written and the plot is so original so I would highly recommend it (and the film!). Now, I'm stuck between a few different books but I think I'll probably read The Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick. 

Glee! Season 5 has finally returned after it's annoying mid-season hiatus and so far, it's just as wonderful as every other season. I feel like my life has had a Glee-shaped hole for the past 6 months and now it's finally filled again. :3 YouTube-wise, I've been slightly in love with Tessa Violet, JonBeHere and ThisIsNotHolly for the past few weeks. They are incredible and you should watch them. Seriously. 

Listening To:
I've actually been listening to an excessive amount of Bombay Bicycle Club for the past fortnight... I 'borrowed' (stole) two Bombay Bicycle Club CDs from my dad and have kinda had them on repeat ever since. He had 'Flaws' and 'I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose' and they are equally awesome but actually very different from each other. It's weird, but good weird. :'D I think my favourite songs are probably 'Magnet' and 'Dust On The Ground'. They are very good. 

If you follow me on Twitter (@CatHannnahXD (personal) or @TACEblog (blog)) you may know that I spent the last 4 days in England. I was in London until Saturday afternoon and while we were there, we went to an amazing cafe for breakfast twice. I can't remember the name but it's in Crystal Palace and is joined onto an awesome antique shop... Anyway, I tried sourdough for the first time and it was incredible. :P

I guess you could say that I enjoyed my mini-holiday in England. I'll do a more in-depth post soon but it really didn't go to plan and was basically a bit of a disaster but there were a couple of highlights - we saw Les Mis at the Queen's Theatre and I'm not exaggerating when I say it was the best thing I've ever seen. Carrie Fletcher was absolutely amazing as Éponine and the full performance was just flawless. If it's possible, see Les Mis. It's completely worth it. ^_^ Spending Friday in Central London was pretty great too; it's a gorgeous city and I'm so happy I've finally got to spend time there after 17 years of living in Scotland, only about 8 hours away. :'D

Apologies for leaving you all for a full week, that hasn't happened for quite some time and it's nice to be back! I was going to schedule some posts for when I was away but the run-up to the holiday was quite hectic so I didn't have time. Sorry! 

Lots of love, Cat


  1. I love these posts!
    I'm going to try and find out what that cafe is called, since I'm going to London next month and we want to have a look around. Bombay Bicycle Club are AMAZING! My favourite song is probably Luna. Not going to lie though, I think the only reason I've just clicked on the link to ThisisnotHolly's channel is because my name is in the title haha.
    So glad you enjoyed your holiday in London! xx

    1. It's in Crystal Palace, near the Queens Hotel, the Tower Hotel and a Cuban restaurant. It's on the same street as an up-cycled furniture shop (which is amazing) and it's attached/next door to an antique shop. The actual cafe itself has antique-y stuff in it as well and has like, big cabinets with old chemistry equipment and beakers etc in them. I wish I knew the name of it but I hope that helped a little bit anyway!
      I love Bombay Bicycle Club but I haven't actually heard Luna... I'll look it up. ^_^
      ThisIsNotHolly is so awesome haha!
      In all honesty, I didn't enjoy the majority of my holiday but I'm trying to stay positive. :) xx

  2. oooOOOH, I really want to read Never Let Me Go! I recently bought When We Were Orphans by Kazuo Ishiguro from a charity shop.

  3. I hear so much about Never Let Me Go and I've never seen the film, but everybody raves about it so I'm going to have to add it to my never-ending reading list ^_^ I hope London wasn't too bad, It's the most beautiful city (very busy though) but hopefully if you go again it will be a little more successful as there are so many lovely things there. I really want to see Les Mis (my life is just singing the songs from it) but I'm going to see War Horse in august so I'm very excited about that :) Lovely post as always xox

    1. London really is beautiful but a lot of stuff went wrong in the space of 4 days...:'D xx
