REVIEW: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

After watching the film and then reading the book in a space of a week - in that order. I decided to write a review, talking about both the book and film adaptation. Although I'm currently at university studying Creative Writing and Journalism, I'm very bad at sitting down and actually read a book. On with the review... I think my heart just melted and made a puddle at my feet. Sigh!

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is set in post World War II era. Follows London based writer Juliet Ashton who wants to break free from the pen name Izzy Bickerstaff, seizes an opportunity to go Guernsey when she receives a letter from a resident Dawsey Adams and member of the island’s Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society who comes across a book that once belonged to her.

Empowering Quotes To Get You Through The Week

I love quotes that empower us, words are powerful and there is nothing more wonderful than having a quote that just speaks many volumes. Sometimes we all need a pick me up or a quote that gives us that motivation, or when we're feeling lost or stuck in life, it helps to read the comforting words of someone a little wiser than me. They reassure me about the direction I’m going in life and help me realise that everything isn’t as bad as it may seem. We all need some motivation, inspiration, and drive and sometimes something so simple like quotes can do just that.

Feel Good Films For When You're Feeling Down

I love cheesy, romantic, drama, comedy films to give me a much needed pick me up and when the world seems like a grim old place. Watching a happy movie is the perfect remedy for when I’m feeling down. They lift me up. They help me forget my anxieties and worries and they put a smile on my face. If you're looking for something to warm your heart, make you laugh, or reduce you to tears. I love chick flicks, romantic dramas simply because it has romance - its safe to say that yes i'm a hopeless romantic, i love love.
