Weekend Reading

I’m currently Fringe-ing it up in Edinburgh, but I did collect a nice lot of goodies for you to sit out in the sunshine with (I refuse to believe that I’m the only person who sits outside with her laptop in the sun)

In utterly shameless self-promotions, I wrote about apologising too much and being more Beyoncé for TYCI, and had a poem in the new Black Fox this week! I’d love for you to have a read!!

In other links… Types of Guys I Would Like To Date, If Anyone Could Please Introduce Me To Them – I laughed too much at too many of these // A short story from Margaret Atwood // The Department of Energy had things to say about Stranger Things (spoilers!) // Your need for perfection is keeping you small // Ursula K. Le Guin on where ideas come from // Winona Forever // Reading makes you live longer // What are you actually passionate about? // People who don’t have children benefit our environment // Why are we so anxious all the time? // Margaret Atwood and Comic-Con // We need to stop glamourising other people’s lives // A Couple in Chicago // George Monbiot on the impact of veganism //

Weekend Reading

Ooer, an on-time Weekend Reading. I mustn’t be feeling well. Ha.

Polly May‘s had a blog makeover // Sending Stranger Gifs to people is my favourite thing this week, after watching Stranger Things // I just want the Obamas to stay forever please // Stylist have launched a short story competition and are looking for gothic fiction // How did Instagram fool us into eating completely disgusting food? // (or you could eat this happy salad instead) // These are good: CuriosityCompetitivenessPossession. // Cinema needs women to get nastier // The best new books for August //

Next weekend I’ll be in Edinburgh, attempting to see six things at the Fringe at once, and generally being a sleep-deprived mess for two days. Tweet me things I cannot miss (I’m already planning book fest things, dance things, and eating too much).

And, oh yes, a Stranger Things playlist…

Weekend Reading

… just!

It’s been a while since I did one of these posts, so I’ve got a little collection and I thought I’d catch the last bit of weekend and share some lazy Sunday evening links.
