    BE Winter ’19: Weasley Jumper book tag

    Good afternoon bookworms! I am so excited for this tag!! It was one I was planning to do anyway when I saw the prompts, but then Emmie tagged me in it, so I guess it was fate!! It’s not really cool enough to wear a jumper here… I’m eating ice-cream as I type this up, but I do love Christmas jumpers!! (I bought a Hogwarts one when we were in Europe for Christmas 2 years ago.) This post is part of Bookending Winter 2019, which is organized by Sam & Clo! Today’s…

    Top 5 Tuesday 2019 wrap-up

    Good morning bookworms! I know, I know… this isn’t actually a Tuesday. But it’s also not really a Top 5 Tuesday topic, so WE ARE FINE. So… what are we doing, you ask?

Books we were going to read this year, books we thought would be 5 star reads, books we were going to buy, etc. So, I’m now going back to check…

    November ’19 book haul

    Good afternoon bookworms! Book haul categories are as follows: book boxes book purchases (book mail, instore and digital) review copies (book mail and digital), and bookish items (book related, but not actual books). I subscribe to three monthly boxes: OwlCrate, FairyLoot and the book-only subscription for LitJoy. However, unusually I cancelled ALL THREE for October. I can’t remember what the books were, but I just wasn’t really that interested… I did receive two limited edition boxes through OwlCrate though: Call Down the Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater The Queen of Nothing…
