Maybe you’ve had a long week and just want to unwind, or you’ve found yourself the lucky recipient of a ticket to another galaxy and need some entertainment for the flight, you’ve come to the right post! Here I’ll be listing two of my favourite books inspired by outer space.

I was born into an age of wonder, of rapidly developing technology and a gold-rush fever demanding constant exploration. I was born into an age of discovery, of revelations of something escaping my comprehension, and an unquenchable thirst to keep on searching. I was born into an era of curiosity, of realities beyond my wildest dreams, of a sky full of opportunity.

This particular post is centred around my admiration for the most hauntingly wonderful and wonderfully tragic character I’ve ever stumbled across: Ophelia.
You’ve no doubt seen all the viral posts with heart-wrenching images of marine life tangled in litter, or once-pristine beaches now a swarming pile of waste.

A haphazard poem of varying rhythms and questionable rhymes. What a perfect metaphor for twenty-eighteen.
On the first of December, Christmas begins.
Smelling an old scent is proven to be the strongest trigger of long-forgotten memories I keep my old perfume bottles tucked away in my cupboard for this very reason and in a sense, I do the same thing with songs: hide them away in the corners of playlists so when they play, I can time travel.
