Kathryn's Blog - I usually have 3 books on the go at once, as well as any movies I happen to see along the way, and I believe that negative opinions can be as constructive as positive ones so be prepared for good and bad reviews!
I like to read fantasy novels mostly, but also enjoy chick lit and vampire fiction as well. I have an interest in light mysteries and light hearted TV shows as well as English comedies. I have been known to read the odd factual-based fiction book but tend to balance it out with more fantasy. Recently I've been re-reading books that I read when I was younger such as Queen Kat, Carmel and St Jude Get a Life by Maureen McCarthy and Tamora Pierce's The Immortals Quartet. A friend has recently introduced me to arthouse films such as Once and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and I don't mind offering my opinion on these either.
Please don't be surprised if this blog comes up with other things as I'm often surprised by what tempts me to read or view it.

Librarychef 2.0 Blog - Hello and welcome to my blog. I will be writing about cookbooks; what I like about some titles and which ones I steer clear of. (Generally I don't go near any of the more haute cuisine ones, which contain recipes that require hard-to-find ingredients or ones that need to be picked on the left-hand side of a hill in Tuscany at dawn.)
