'Persephone' poem published on WORDLY


I've recently had a poem published on WORDLY's blog.

WORDLY is my uni's student magazine. It publishes fiction, non-fiction, poetry and art. Four issues, centered on different themes, are produced a year. They also publish pieces on their website.

My poem is entitled Persephone and was inspired by the Greek goddess, Persephone.

Above is the photo that was used to promote my poem on Twitter. I love how it perfectly captures the details of pomegranates, especially the colour.

You can read my poem here.

Top 5 Wednesday: 2018 Reading Resolutions

Today I’m participating in the Top 5 Wednesday blogging meme. It was created by Lainey at Gingerreadslainey. It’s currently hosted by Sam at Thoughts on Tomes. You can find the Goodreads group, with all the prompts, hereToday’s topic is ‘freebie.’ I’m doing the January 3rd topic ‘2018 Reading Resolutions.’ I thought by posting my reading resolutions it'd make me more inclined to do them. Better late than never!

Top 5 Wednesday

  1. Complete the 2018 POPSUGAR reading challenge

Last year, I attempted the 2017 POPSUGAR reading challenge but gave up pretty quickly. I didn’t balance reading for class with reading for pleasure. I want to have a better balance this year and complete the challenge. 

  1. Attempt the advanced section of the 2018 POPSUGAR reading challenge 
I think the challenge is an attainable goal, but the advanced section may be too much pressure. I want to attempt this section, but I won’t put the pressure on myself to do it. 

  1. Read books I own 
This year I want to make an effort to read most of the books I own. I always too distracted by library books, and then feel guilty for ignoring the books on my shelves. 

  1. Reread a favourite book 
Sometimes I get so caught up in reading new books for challenges that I don’t make time to reread my favourite books. I want to make time to return to a few books I love.

  1. Read books for book club
I just got a ticket to go to The YA Room’s The Belles book meet. I'm looking forward to meeting up with other book lovers and having a discussion with them. I want to try and make it a regular thing.
