Arianne James, intern:


A few months ago, I read The Other Side of the World by Stephanie Bishop. I consider it to be one of the best books I’ve ever read and have been recommending it to everyone! The writing is stunning and there is a lot to be learned from Bishop’s style. The characters are so well developed, and so it feels like they’re sitting right next to you. It is relatable but at the same time puts you at a distance to their lives and their troubles. A complete wonder.

I’ve just finished Attachments by Rainbow Rowell. This is a hilarious romantic comedy about an internet security guard who falls in love with the girl whose emails come up in his WebFence folder. Witty and heartfelt, it’s hard to put down.
