    So, you’re looking for a new Harry Potter… magic school!

    Hello bookworms!! Let’s be honest, the absolute shitshow of JK Rowling’s recent(ish) social media outbursts have had a lot of us questioning our support of the Potterverse. A lot of my friends have stopped buying official merch (which gives JK money), taken their HP books off their shelves, or even given them away. Maybe one day we’ll be better able…

    Good morning bookworms! Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is ‘sanity savers – things I’m enjoying while in isolation!’ Because so help me, I am starting to lose my mind… In saying that, today is day number… twenty-six that I have been in isolation.

(Week 1: nothing, week 2: 7 ebooks, week 3: 1 audiobook, week 4: nothing, last 4 days of month: 1 physical book.) I was kind of…

    2019 WRAP-UP!!

    Good afternoon bookworms! Ahhh… the dreaded annual wrap-up. I mean, it’s not really “dreaded”… it just takes me ages to write and so I procrastinate it forever. Except, this year I was pretty good at keeping my spreadsheets up to date, so *hopefully* this won’t be as terrible as my brain is making it out to be!!* PS: This is…
