30 Day Book Challenge: Day Twenty-Five & April Challenge


Favourite book you read in school

I’ve already featured a few books from my uni course but my favourite book I read at school has to have been J.D. Salinger’s Catcher In The Rye.

 Summary (From GoodReads)

Since his debut in 1951 as The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield has been synonymous with “cynical adolescent.” Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he’s been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on banned book lists.

His constant wry observations about what he encounters, from teachers to phonies (the two of course are not mutually exclusive) capture the essence of the eternal teenage experience of alienation.

April Challenge: How did I do?

At the start of the month I challenged myself to be selfish and make more time for me every day. Did I do it? Yes.

With only a couple of exceptions I made time either to put on some make-up or do my hair properly. I thought about what I was wearing and made an effort to look pretty rather than just pulling on my biggest jeans and a baggy top – this made me feel much better, even on the days when I was just staying at home with the kids.

Hooray – I’m not Evil-Zombie-Mummy-Of-Doom any more! Instead I’m a little bit closer to being Yummy-Mummy-Caroley who feels a lots brighter about life 🙂
