So I’ve been having a near-enough breakdown over the past few weeks over my book collection. I am running out of room even though I have bookshelves in pretty much every room of my house, I don’t know how to organise them plus I’m still adding to my collection. However, whilst sorting out my books, I’ve found a few that I realise I treasure for various reasons and I thought I’d share them here. These are books that I have read and loved (minus one, bear with me) and decided to pick up a ‘special’ edition of. Continue reading “Favourite Books in My Collection | Part I”
I’ve got a bit of a different style of review for you all today…
Is anyone else a collector? Whether it be of different editions of the same book, every copy of a certain authors works, or bookish merch for a certain fandom, I’m definitely guilty of it. A few weeks ago, Lauren and I decided we just had to finish our almost complete Sarah Maria Griffin collections – and for us, this meant hunting down the Book of Wisdom she recently wrote for Belgian music festival Tomorrowland. These were sent out to attendees with their wristband tickets, but after a late night eBay trawl, we managed to find someone selling two of the English copies. They arrived the week before last in their gorgeous special edition boxes. So, here’s my unboxing/mini review!
(ps. this post is basically a tonne of photos of a gorgeous book)

So recently on Twitter we’ve seen a lot of people asking questions about co-blogging or looking into finding a co-blogger. Since it seems to be a popular topic at the moment, we thought we’d do a little FAQ on the topic. We’re not experts but we have both been blogging here together for a few years now, so we think we can definitely give you an insight into it! If you have anymore questions we don’t cover, feel free to ask in the comments.

This is a bit of a delayed post but still an event I wanted to talk about, so here we go!
The week before last, Lauren, Beth, Becky and I (plus Imi and Donna who we met up with at the event) took a trip to Liverpool to see two faves, Sarah Maria Griffin and Christine Lynn Herman. With it only being a few days since we’d got home from YALC, another book event seemed like the perfect way to deal with, well, a book event hangover.

For me, graphic novels is a new genre I’m venturing into. I always feared that the story wouldn’t be able to come across as well with art as it does with novels but I have been proven wrong a lot lately. Although I didn’t love Mooncakes as much as everybody else, I’m still excited that books like this are being brought into the world as graphic novels about queer witches and werewolves definitely wasn’t common when I was younger.

This is a tag hosted by Taking on a World of Words and is one I used to do a lot so I thought I’d bring it back this week! The rules are to simply answer three questions about your current books and to keep a little tab on what you’re reading next. As I’m currently taking part in my N.E.W.T’s and have an exciting little TBR next month, I’m excited to do some more of these.

So after completing and loving the Reading Rush last month, I definitely wanted to do another readathon this month as it really is the best motivation. I asked around to see which ones were being hosted and I was recommended the Magical Readathon hosted by Book Roast. This is a really complex readathon inspired by Harry Potter and it’s clear how much work has been put into it. However, I hit a slight snag when I found out that I should have first completed my O.W.L’s in April. Even though I’m usually a stickler for rules, I’ve decided to swap them around and sit my N.E.W.T’s first. I’ve also picked the Librarian career to aim towards so here are the books I’ll be reading in August in order to get my qualifications.
