For the most part this blog will be for my reviews of books that I've read and films I've seen but occasionally you may get a bit of a rant about my views on life or a review of an album etc.
Hailing from North London, I am a twenty-one year old graduate of Classical Civilisation from University in Nottingham. I have recently begun the Publishing MA course at UCL and so far, so good; a seemingly good move for me in terms of my path into the publishing industry. The dream ultimately is to become a literary agent as I've always loved to tuck myself away with a book and it would be great to be able to publish a book that makes an impact on someones life as so many books have done for me (forgive me if thats a bit soppy).
Let me tell you a little bit about my book/film habits. Perhaps a little too unwilling to grow up, most of my spare time is spent reading books aimed at Young Adults despite the fact that I stopped being the target audience some time ago. I think it's important for everyone to be aware of what is being put in the pages of YA books; many of them really are truly brilliant but some, often the most popular ones, have some recurring themes that could grow into issues if not addressed soon. I often also like to indulge in what I suppose most would call 'Chick Lit' but as many of these books probably do not deserve to be lumped under this relatively demeaning title I will here call it Women's Literature.
Film-wise, well I suppose any child of my generation is unwilling to leave Disney films behind entirely so I would still count Hercules (fitting as a former classics student), Tangled and the Lion King among my all time favourite films. But also in there would be Warrior starring Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton, Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy and The Avengers (or Marvel's Avengers Assemble as it had be renamed in the UK) and I suppose basically any Marvel film that has come out in the past 5 years (except maybe Thor 1 & 2).
So that's me! Feel free to follow me on Twitter: @naomijoy10
