I've been quite busy for the past couple of weeks and I haven't written a post about myself, or something that I have done for a while. Apart from my weekly Wednesday posts and a few random others, there hasn't been anything else happening.

So, yesterday me and a few friends went off to the Metro Centre (our local shopping centre) and went to the cinema to watch The Death & Life of Charlie St. Cloud. I was really looking forward to watching the film as I have also read the book by Ben Sherwood. It was kinda nice knowing what was going to happen when nobody else did but the ending of the film was a little different so that was a nice surprise. I love reading books and I read this particular book whilst on holiday back in June. I enjoyed it but it wasn't the best book I have ever read. It made a change from the usual genres of books I normally read so I do recommend it. I won't say anymore in case you are planning to go and see the film yourself. Are you or have you already?

After the film finished me and my friend Sarah went around the Metro Centre to go shopping and get a few things. As we are both bookworms (!) we of course ended up in the book store Waterstones before we even got to the shops we needed to. Lets just say I love buying books but because I have just bought five books of Amazon and the collection of Jane Austen novels from Amazon the other day, I forbid myself from buying any more because firstly: I havn't read any of them yet and secondly: I need to finish the final book of the trilogy books by Stieg Larsson. I am finally onto the final one called The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest. Although I am yet to finish the final book I can already recommend you to read the books - they are brilliant and you do not want to put them down!

Yes, I know this post is turning into a declaration of love for books and it was supposed to be about yesterday so I will carry on from the book store where I found lots of books that me and friend both want to read. After we finished our shopping we went to the bus station and met another of our friends (who didn't actually come with us but with someone else) and we had a good old gossip!

It was great to finally go out and enjoy some time with friends, watch a good film and do some shopping especially as the weather turns colder! I'm sure there will be lots more trips to do some shopping in the next few months as Christmas rapidly arrives. Apart from going out shopping, I love to stay in and the colder days with a good book or film with of course a hot chocolate!
What's your favourite thing to do when the autumn and winter arrives?
