I turned 24, and I'm sort of unsure about it

I turned 24, and I'm having a quarter life crisis. Thoughts about ageing and being at the right stage of your life.

Twenty four is one of the ages I've struggled turning the most. At 20 I was no longer a teen, 21 is a big year to most people, 22 was my Taylor Swift year (the song not a fanatic phase), 23 was my golden birthday (23 on the 23rd), so now 24 is a bit of a regular standard birthday. It's also super close to 25, which to me is super close to 30 which is super close to 40 and frankly, I'm not ready for that.

Book vs Movie Review: Ready Player One

a review on the movie and book Ready Player One by Ernest Cline directed by Steven Spielberg iphone flatlay we own the sky luke allnutt art3mis parzival aech shoto dito halliday
I'm very much one of those horrible people who always say 'the books better than the movie' and to be quite honest with the exception of probably two or three movies I do think they are. This doesn't mean I hate the movies though I realise they need to cut out things and change things slightly to make the stories work for the screen, I just usually prefer the book. Now, Ready Player One has been a big hit lately and with all the hype of the movie I felt I had to read the book first! Here are my thoughts on both:

25 Songs From My Favourites Playlist

25 songs from my current favourite spotify playlist music apple homepod lettering

I'm not usually one to talk about music on here because usually my music tastes are very much full of popular charts, listening to my parent's faves from my childhood, or I'm going through a phrase of blasting Disney songs wherever I go. However, as I've finally downloaded Spotify at work near the end of last year I had to make a playlist that I could listen to day in day out and not get bored, but also be filled with songs I knew fairly well enough to fall into the zone of work and not get distracted everytime a new song came on. So when I haven't been binging The Greatest Showman soundtrack on repeat here's a 25 track example of my 10-hour playlist:

April is not only my own birthday month but it's also my blog birthday month! Earlier this week, on the 4th to be exact, my blog turned 5 years old. Now while I haven't been blogging that entire time, my first post was released on the 4th of April 2013 when I was bored after one of my classes in the first year of university.

I don't know about you, but I could not wait for this four day weekend. After some rather busy weeks since going back to work after Christmas I was in due need for a holiday, and because I'm saving my holidays up for halfway through the year I've been throughly taking advantage of these public holidays.

Recently Read ~ January to March book reviews

book review flatlay of Turtles all the way down by john green, to all the boys i've loved before by Jenny Han,  Wayfarer by Alexandra Bracken, Aristotle and Dante Discover The Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz, and These Dividing Walls by Fran Cooper

It's been a while since I wrote my last Recently Read post, since September in fact, and besides The Picture of Dorian Gray review, I posted in February I haven't really posted many reviews at all. So let's catch you up on what I've been reading this year so far. I've currently read 12 books (and halfway through two others) but to save this from becoming a giant essay I'm going to share 5 of my favourites that I don't plan on dedicating full posts to:
