MOST RECENT

I love settings that are almost like another character in a book - give me some good armchair travel any time! I have noticed, however, that most of the books I read are set in the UK or USA. To challenge myself to venture further afield, I now keep track of my books' settings on an "armchair travel map", which is a great visual representation of all the places I have visited this year so far (if you are interested, the link is in my bio). I am very excited to add another Irish setting to my map with this ARC of @claireallan_author's latest book, Her Name Was Rose. Such a beautiful cover (thank you to Avon Books UK)! .
What is another book with an interesting setting you can recommend to add to my armchair travel map?

"It is exceptionally lonely, being Draco Malfoy. I will always be suspected. There is no escaping the past.โ€œ
- J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to throw my hat into @bloomsburypublishing's #HousePride photo competition to celebrate the 20th anniversary release of the special House editions of the #ChamberofSecrets. I have my #Slytherin #PhilosophersStone edition, and I can't wait to collect the full set!
.
.
I tried to pile as many versions of the books as possible into this set! I think I am working on four complete sets?? I have my original copies that I read growing up, the illustrated editions, a Slytherin set, and then my housemate and best friend has a #Gryffindor set that I frequently "borrow" as well! Who said inter-house friendships aren't a thing??
.
.
#HarryPotter is such a part of who I am, that I honestly couldn't imagine a world without it. I grew up with Harry. I battled dementors, discovered Quidditch, marvelled at the Yule Ball, found friendships, and defeated evil within the pages. I remember following any information about the movie release, casting announcements, the trailer. I remember where I was for the first movie, and where I was for the last, when we said goodbye to Harry, Ron, Hermionie, and these friends that had been with me for so long. To this day, I still celebrate Harry Potter, with #FantasticBeasts and #CursedChild, with cosplay and visiting #WizardingWorld, and still getting excited about the face magic is real, and it's up to you to believe. .

#juneinbooks18 | FICTIONAL FATHER FIGURE
๐Ÿพ
I know a weird choice for some because apparently there are people out there who doesn't love Sirius (psshh watevs! Lol ๐Ÿ˜œ) .. But despite Sirius' and his imperfections, I thought he would've been a great father figure for Harry.. (In all his troublemaker ways!) ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰

#readervvnjunechallenge | FAVE BOOKISH ART
๐Ÿพ
I love all the illustrations for all the HP and HP related books! That's including all the covers for the hundreds of HP editions out there! ๐Ÿ˜… Any the many more to be released in the future. I know I'll be obsessed with them too!

#jcfjune | DNF'ED .
๐Ÿพ
Fun Fact: I almost.. (ALMOST) DNF'ed the rest of Order of the Phoenix. As a massively Sirius fan, I died during.. well you know which scene! ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’” It was the first time I had ever experienced book limbo (where you've read a jaw dropping scene, blink a few times, you go through the motions.. but not really). To this day I still haven't reread that scene and I never watch that part in the film either. It's too much! .

Question: What was your least fave part to read or watch from all the HP books? .

Funny sad memoir of Australian fashion designer.
Hands up if you wore an Alannah Hill flower in your hair in the 1990s๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธI did! With my Alannah Hill cardigan and A-Line suede skirt ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ
This was an eye-opening read. Very sad in parts. I loved the photos and the anecdotes centred around Melbourne in the 80s and 90s.
Recommended for anyone interested in reading the life story of a trail blazing, fierce and fragile woman.

QOTD what is one of your favourite accounts on bookstagram?
Nominate someone below ๐Ÿ‘‡ and send them some love ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’– and tell them something you love about them or their account! ๐Ÿ˜„
Let's spread some positivity and good vibes!

One of my favourite accounts is @kimmersbooks because he does an amazing job of connecting people and he knows how much we love him despite how much shit we give him (especially about cleaning his room) ๐Ÿ˜…

#juneinbooks18 [make a bookish circle]
#riversidepotionsjune [widely loved quote you dont understand] "Fine, make me your villain." I actually thought this was from a different book ๐Ÿ˜…

#bookqueensjune18 [book is better than the cover] to be honest, this cover looks a little like a B-grade movie and I probably wouldn't have picked it up if i wasn't specifically looking for it.

#bookstagramtogetherjune [an unpopular opinion] please nobody leave a dead rat by my bed but I don't hate Tamlin. I just pity him. I'm not trying to justify his actions I just think he deserves a chance for redemption.

#supernaturalsummer18 WEREWOLF
Welcome back Monday morning (sarcasm) dragged myself out of bed at 7ยฐC put the oven on to cook my daughter's lunch & stayed in front of the oven with a cup of tea to warm me up.
I read Mongrels after seeing it on so many insta accounts & this is one book that did not disappoint.
A story told by a young boy living with his family who's grandfather has always told him he is a werewolf. The boy thinks these are stories but maybe the men in his family truly are werewolves. So when is it his turn?

Fuelling up on the good life before going back on night shift - sun, sea, surf, a good book and a husband who takes sneaky photos without me knowing ;) Currently reading an ARC of Mary Kubica's When the Lights Go Out, which is brilliant so far! It doesn't come out till September but I couldn't help myself, I just love her writing. What is everyone else up to this weekend?

shark girl by kelly bingham
yowzers this plot was a real tear jerker and very relatable even though iโ€™m not an amputee. the plot is jane arrowood is at the beach when her arm is severed off by a shark. now the book tells the story of living with only her left arm. oh my goosh ok so i relate to jane about her feelings. obviously i donโ€™t have only one arm but her feelings mirror mine in a lot of ways. michael is a huge mean brother, i canโ€™t stand him. her mother is another character i canโ€™t stand as well, and you can add angie to the list. i love her relationship with max as well as justin. i love lil justin as well as the plot carried throughout this book. the setting up of the book is a lot like poetry, thereโ€™s about 5 words on each line so it was also another book iโ€™m in love with. i might read this again, maybe not. it was a little juvenile but not enough for me to not love this book. i recommend this book to people who have never met an amputee. i rate this book 7 sharks out of 10 ๐Ÿฆˆ

we come apart by sarah crossan & brian conaghan
holy crap this book was amazing i loved it and i love sarah as well. the plot was jess and nicu are on their third time stealing, and are both put into community service. they start making friends but nicu is being placed in an arranged marriage to a girl he doesnโ€™t even know. ok so terry is such a fart face i just want to set that straight. all of jessโ€™ circle (other than nicu) are straight up crusty nuggets and i hate them all so much, as well as nicuโ€™s parents. the whole scene at lunch with dan and nicu killed me inside, as well as the locker room incident. when they wagged the whole incident with dan shook me because what happened to dan i actually thought happened to nicu. then with terry, i didnโ€™t understand why they were running. if they just said both were self defence which both were they would have been fine to run away. then at the train station ughhhh. this book teared at all my heart strings and it was written in a poetry like way which i LOVE. at the start i didnโ€™t enjoy this too much but about 3 seconds in i fell in love with all the plot and the characters. i am in love with sarah crossan now and this style of books. i will read this again if i ever get up to doing so lol. i recommend this book to fans of poetry and fiction. i rate this book 10 gypsies out of 10 ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐ŸŽค

It's a public holiday here in Adelaide today (the Queen's birthday) and I absolutely loved not having to get out of bed before 10am ๐Ÿ˜…. QOTD if you could live on another planet which one would you pick and why?

black butler XX by yana toboso
yowzers this plot is so cool and itโ€™s about to end :( the plot is that ciel gets over his madness and the emerald witch finds out the truth about the real world and her village. woah ok so the literal last page is so messed up lmao this girl is like 10 and look at her life! jeez germans in this book are so messed up (i love german people irl but this book portrays them as psychopaths). i loved the whole scientific explanation of the wolfman and like when they all leave. the whole book was very good though, i enjoyed this volume a lot but iโ€™m getting sick of the crime, i just want to see ciel and sebastian and the staff be domestic like when they went shopping. i may read this again, who knows what iโ€™ll do anymore? i recommend this book to weaboos. i rate this book 6 SuLinโ€™s out of 10 โš—๏ธ

We cannot quite believe that this year we celebrate our SECOND International Book Fairy Day! Some of you may remember that last year we found out with great excitement that there was an international fairy day on 24th June, then basically hijacked the whole thing by adding the word BOOK... Well, it was so much fun last year that we thought we would do it again ๐Ÿ’š

On Sunday 24th June we invite you to CELEBRATE with us! Our very own international day. You can celebrate simply by hiding books as every magical book fairy does, or you can put your own twist on the day. We will be sharing ideas and activities in the lead up and on the big day itself!

Swipe across to see some of the antics from last year ๐Ÿ˜

Oh and the theme is.... green. And books. And don't forget fairies. ๐Ÿ’š

By holding this event we simply want to know the answer to one question... do YOU believe in book fairies? ๐Ÿ’ซ

Are you going to get involved? Tell us in the comments what you will do to celebrate this day - you might give someone else a great idea too! ๐Ÿ˜
