Oh hi there! You found me! I’m Vicky and welcome to my little blogging corner of the internet. As of writing this I’ve just completed my Masters in English Literature at Cardiff University after my Undergraduate at the same University. This will make it pretty obvious that I love reading, but I specifically studied Medical Humanities [focusing on the corpse and the ghost in my MA and disabled figures labelled as monsters in my BA] which means I love reading classics, thrillers, horror, anything relating to medicine and the law, non-fiction and anything creepy! At the moment I’m starting to read around my PhD idea which is currently focused on blood, electrocardiography and execution in nineteenth-century and modern literature and you can read more about this in the Medical Humanities tab above. However, I promise this is not all I read. Now that I’m out of university for the first time I’m catching up on all of the 2018 and 2019 releases I’ve seen all over my favourite Booktube channels. In 2020 I’m going to start writing more book blogs as I go through these releases, and upcoming 2020 releases, as I experiment and discover.
However, while the above covers the slightly newer bookish half of this blog, this website started as a place for me to share my thoughts on Musical Theatre as watching both the classic shows and new projects is my primary hobby. I will clarify I am nowhere near talented enough to partake in theatre as in singing, dancing or acting but as many shows draw inspiration from literary stories and they all make up a narrative through storytelling I decided to share my perspective on their execution.
I hope you enjoy having a look around at the theatre reviews, book reviews, chats about my medical humanities ideas in preparation for my PhD journey (fingers crossed). If you do please consider getting in touch or following any of the social links above.
