The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson | Sister Review

The idea is to provide you with two different perspectives. This review might contain spoilers! We might discuss any part of the story (sometimes the questions we ask each other might be general, while other times they might touch upon something specific about the ending, etc).

One of the perks of studying publishing is that you’re surrounded by avid readers all day, every day! An added bonus is that there are plenty of enthusiasts around when you’re thinking of creating a book club. And so this romance book club was formed. Because this month started off with a three-week break for us, we decided to read not one but three books. What: One Day…

Edinburgh Walking Guide

It may or may not have escaped your notice that I moved to Edinburgh in August. One of my absolute favourite characteristics of this city is that there are a plethora of walks to enjoy. Since it has now been five months since that I moved here, I thought it would be nice to share my favorite places to escape the city for a bit. Armed with a home-brewed cup of coffee, I prepared a list of beautiful and relaxing places to walk in Edinburgh or around the Edinburgh area. Arthur’s Seat Arthur’s Seat can be spotted standing tall and proud in the picture from The Edinburgh Grand above. This was the first walk I did when I visited Edinburgh about two years ago. It…
