How I Live Now Book Review.

Hi everyone,

I’d like to share my thoughts with you on the book ‘How I Live Now’ by Meg Rosoff.

I love how this book is written, in a ‘Stream of Consciousness’ style, it’s such a refreshing change. Whilst I’m reading it in the voice I’ve made for Daisy, you can really get into the story and feel like you’re on this journey with her.

Daisy, which is one of the main characters in this book, is such a likeable girl. Even with her problems, being sent away from home, she still remains positive considering what she has been through. Her connection with her cousins is incredible, Edmond in particular, their love is forbidden. But this is the war… so does that really matter?

I am guilty of getting emotionally attached to the characters in this book, Piper is my favourite person ever, shes such an adorable innocent soul, you can’t help but fall in love with her.

As the book progresses, you get put through a whirlwind of different feelings; Love, Excitement, Grief and most importantly, Delighted.

This is the first book of it’s kind I’ve read, with it being based around a War, it wouldn’t be my usual go to read. However, I’ve now read this book twice and loved it the second time round too!

This is my first time writing a review on a book, hopefully I’ve done a semi-decent job of it 🙂

Sticky Chicken With Soy, Sesame & Chilli

Hey. Showing off my first Gousto recipe!

All in all, I would rate this recipe 5/5 Stars. Easy to follow instructions, takes 35 mins in total (for 2 people) and tastes amazing. Easily the best food I have EVER cooked.

I’ll list the ingredients etc below:

  • 4 British chicken thigh fillets
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 25g Honey
  • 10g Toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 Spring onion
  • 1 tsp five-spice mix
  • 130g Brown rice
  • 15g Fresh root ginger
  • 1 Red chilli
  • 24ml Soy sauce
  • 26ml Tomato ketchup
  • 50g Baby kale

The thing I like most about Gousto, is that they give you exact ingredients, so there is zero food waste (unless you count the ends of the spring onions). Not only is it great food, but it’s fantastic for saving food etc.

If you’re interested in trying it out, this link will get you 50% off your first 2 boxes, that’s what I did, and so glad I did!
Hope you liked the post, look out for the next one tomorrow!

Nice to meet you…

Wooo! First post, I’m starting on the path to being what they call, a ‘blogger’. I quite like the idea of being a blogger, I’m often finding myself thinking ‘if I had a blog, that would be a great post’.. now I have a place to do that, guess what, I don’t have anything that’s coming to mind that will be a ‘great first post’. So you’ll have to bear with me whilst I get my brain gears working, I promise you I’ll be more interesting in the near future 🙂
