Review: Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale

Name: Someone Else's Life
Author: Katie Dale
Publisher: Simon and Schuster UK
Date published: 2012
Number of pages: 478
Rating: 3/5
Someone Else's Life was incredibly dramatic, with many, many plot twists. Although I understood why it was so dramatic, as it dealt with a couple of very serious topics, I'm not sure if I liked how some parts were done and how there were a couple of questions that were still unanswered by the end. Seeing as the main point of the story was for Rosie to go on this journey to find out the truth about her life and the lives of the people around her, I felt it strange that I still had questions when it was over. Surely all my questions should have been answered?
At some points I did enjoy reading the book, it wasn't all bad, far from it, but there were some points when I really did not enjoy it. I especially didn't enjoy it between the middle and end of the book, when some of the characters' actions frustrated me and annoyed me slightly, so I…

Rambles (#2): On Ambition

I suppose I could be called ambitious, after all, not only do I want to be a writer (something which recently I've become very determined to be) but I've also found that I'm also quite ambitious in everyday terms. I always want to do at least one productive thing every day and I hate waking up late (mostly I aim to be up by 10 o' clock) because I feel like I'm wasting the day away sleeping when I could be getting stuff done (plus I don't like missing the oppurtunity to have breakfast, I like my food). Most people my age that I've come across find this quite strange and look at me weirdly when I say I've never slept later than 11am. But I'm most productive in the mornings and early afternoons, I think, so I might as well be awake when I'm most productive.
So, I like to do at least one productive thing a day. And it's not just that I like to do it, I also feel like I have to if I want to achieve my goals and go through with my plans, of which …

My Life (#6): Resolutions

So, back in January, like many other people, I made some resolutions, basically a list of things I want to do this year, and since we're now into the second month of the year, I thought I would look back on the past month to see how I've been progressing with those resolutions.
Firstly, I decided I wanted to be more experimental with cooking; I wanted to try new recipes and make a meal plan for each week to keep track of what I was going to eat (which makes it easier to make shopping lists, as well as to keep track of how I'm doing with my resolution). I decided to do this because last term, which was my first term at university, I mainly survived on rice, pasta, and soup (although I am happy to say that I barely touched a ready meal and went nowhere near the pot noodles). And I have to say, I think I'm doing quite well with this resolution. I mean, I still make quite basic meals, and there is a lot of pasta and rice involved, but I think I am becoming more varied in w…
