Weekly Inspirations

The list of films and books I want to watch/read has reached an all time high, I need to stop adding to it. Also I've spent an obscene amount of time online looking at food porn and pretty hair. Side note: what the hell is up with the weather lately? Summer in London sucks. Anyway, here are the things I'm into at the moment.

Books to read: Forbidden edition

I love to read anything that was once banned, I guess its just the rebel in me.

This was banned for "language and sexual references"
I download this a long time ago but because of uni work I never really got around to reading it. I enjoyed the film (watch it) so I hope this will be as good, if not better. It's also considered a literary classic.

Banned for sexual portrayal of older man with a child.
This is one of my friends favorite books, and although quite unsettling and dark subject matter, it does sound interesting. It's about a 38 year old Literature professor who becomes obsessed, and sexually involved with, a 12 year old girl - who is his step-daughter. I'm not a big fan of erotic novels but I'll give it a go.

Banned for obscenity
The author was friends with Allen Ginsberg, who I love, so I thought I'd read some of his work. He was seriously addicted to drugs and 
I'm trying to find unusual books, this one is structured into several short scenes that are loosely connected. They stories are intended to be read in any order, which I think is cool. 


I'm a big Lana Del Rey fan, but I was disappointed by her latest album 'Ultraviolence', that's not to say that I hated it. There are some great songs but for me only a few of them. My favorite songs on the album are 'Old Money', 'Flipside' (which I think is only on the Japanese edition, but you can find it on youtube), 'Pretty when you cry', and of course, her latest single West Coast, which is the one I have on repeat as I write this blog.
