The Kind Worth Killing – Paul Swanson (4 stars)

The Kind Worth Killing was a chance read for me. Having picked it up in a charity shop whilst browsing, I was forced to buy it by a friend that spotted me and wouldn’t let me return it to the shelf. All I can say is I’m glad she insisted; this was one of the most thrilling books I’ve read in a very long time. Continue reading The Kind Worth Killing – Paul Swanson (4 stars)

A Week in Split

Last week for my 20th birthday I was lucky enough to check another location off my travel bucket list and, with a group of 3 of my closest friends, made it across the way to Croatia! And my God, was it everything I dreamed it would be and more. Here’s a few highlights of the week and what you should look out for when travelling to Split. Continue reading A Week in Split
