The Reading Hour.

Tonight at 6pm marks 2015’s edition of The Reading Hour. In celebration, here are the books I’ve read in the past year and a brief review of them. What have you been reading since last year’s event? Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay. If you haven’t read Roxane Gay’s book of essays since it was released […]

The Reading Hour.

It’s that time of year again and, in the spirit of tonight’s Reading Hour, I thought I’d tell you what I’ve been reading since last years’ event. Rookie Yearbooks 1 & 2 by Tavi Gevinson. I fell in love with Tavi Gevinson at last years’ Melbourne Writers Festival and had to snap up Rookie Yearbook […]

Event: The Reading Hour 2013.

It’s that time of year again—National Reading Hour—and last year for the event I chronicled the books I’d read and what I thought of them and thought I’d do something similar this year. Without further ado, here’s an incomplete list (I threw out my day planner from last year in which I’d pencilled in time […]

Event: The Reading Hour.

In celebration of the National Year of Reading, today marks the National Reading Hour. While the exact time frame for the event is sketchy, and anyone who knows me knows I’ll be spending much more than one hour reading today (or on any day, for that matter), the aim of the event is to instill […]

Hot Girls Reading Books.

We’ve done the guys, now it’s time for the girls. You wouldn’t believe what a struggle it was to find pictures of hot chicks reading. You would think there was a stereotype of beautiful women being dumb, wouldn’t you? There’s non-threatening beauties like Audrey Hepburn, whom most would buy as a smart lady, and drop-dead […]

My Favourite Books of 2016.

It’s the time of year when everyone releases their end-of-year best-of lists. Normally I write about the best books I’ve read over the course of the year in August for the National Reading Hour, but this year I decided to fit in with the literati. It’s important to note that some of these books weren’t […]

On the (Rest of the) Net.

Judd Apatow makes the same sexist, conservative and boring movie over and over again. [The Guardian] Is there ever a justification for killing an animal? [Jezebel] Why I won’t work with Lena Dunham as long as she supports the criminalisation of sex work. [Molly Crabapple] How do singletons feel smug now that longtime lonely girl […]

Event: The Blogcademy Melbourne.

This year has been one of professional development. I’ve completed two unpaid internships at Meanjin and The Lifted Brow, I’m working for Outback Championship Wrestling as their TV show’s host (which I have no idea how to do!) and I’ve spent my fair share of dosh on both in-person and online workshops, the most expensive […]

On the (Rest of the) Net.

PETA get more anti-women with each ad campaign. [Daily Life] On favouring the internet over books. I’m a rapacious reader; if I don’t get at least an hour’s reading time in each day, I will slowly start to go insane. Some of my friends tease me ’cause it can take me up to a month or […]
