It’s time for another Stacking the Shelves post with no books! I’m still on my book-buying ban with 7 more books to go, but I’m honestly really happy about the ban. It’s helping me realise I don’t need to buy as many books as I do and it’s helping me save some money! However, I did buy something book-related and very special this week for Valentines Day.

I bought my other half a gorgeous Harry Potter card that has a little pug on, from here.

And to go alongside? I got him something we both love – Lego!

We’re slowly collecting Harry Potter Lego, and I thought what would be more perfect than this?

Did you buy any books or bookish goodies this week?

Let’s Discuss! My Bookish Pop Funko Collection

Let’s Discuss! My Bookish Pop Funko Collection

Hi all! Sorry I needed a break for a couple of days as it’s been a busy and a little bit of a stressful week. However, I’m back now and I’m here with a post I’m really excited for – my bookish Pop Funkos! I’ve recently talked about Pop’s I want to buy, and I thought I could also talk about Pops I already have.

I have a small Harry Potter collection that takes up most of my Pops! These little animals are from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Crimes of Grindelwald. I love how big the 10″ Niffler is compared to my baby (normal size) Nifflers!

My Harry Potter collection also extends to the original films – with my limited edition Harry with Broomstick and this cute little Luna.

I only have a couple of other Pops that aren’t from Harry Potter, but I love them all the same. I have Katniss – Girl on Fire, which has an awesome outfit. I also have Miss Peregrine, who comes with (you guessed it) a tiny peregrine!

Which Pop Funkos do you own or want?

Hi everyone! Today was a freebie, so I thought it would be really fun to tell you all about some bookish Pops I really want. I only have a small collection at the moment, so I think it’s time to slowly expand and here’s some I’d like!

Pop! TV: Game of Thrones - Ghost
Pop! TV: Game of Thrones - Drogon
Pop! TV: Game of Thrones - White Walker
Pop! TV: Game of Thrones - Jon Snow

I love the Game of Thrones TV show and I’m so excited for season 8! I haven’t read the books yet as I don’t have them all but I definitely love these Pops.

Another book I haven’t actually read yet but the franchise/story is so awesome! How cool is this Mad Hatter Pop?

Pop! Movies: Harry Potter - Albus Dumbledore
Pop Movies: Fantastic Beasts 2 - Newt Scamander (w/Chase)

The collection I’m most serious about is definitely my Harry Potter collection. Most merch I can leave, but these Pops (and Harry Potter Lego) has my heart ❤

On a non-bookish level, I’m also looking at getting Friends Pops!

Harry Potter Book Tag

Harry Potter Book Tag

I found this tag on Luna’s Little Library ages ago and I’ve been wanting to take part ever since! As no one has actually tagged me, I’m just going to go ahead and take part.

Before I start, check out Luna’s Little Library and I’d love to credit the original post maker but I’m not quite sure who the genius was!

Which house are you in?

Image result for hufflepuff gif

I’m a proud Hufflepuff and I love my house! I think it suits me perfectly 🙂

What is your patronus?

A beautiful white stallion.

What is your wand?

It’s apparently a Rowan wood with unicorn hair core 13 3/4″ and quite bendy flexibility! Thanks Pottermore.

What would your boggart be?

Probably spiders.

Which position would you play in Quidditch?

I can actually see myself as a seeker!

Would you be a pure blood, half blood or muggle born?

I think muggle born.

What job would you want after graduating Hogwarts?

Running a bookshop or cafe in Hogsmeade or Diagon Alley!

Which of the Deathly Hallows would you choose?

That’s such a hard question! I think the invisibility cloak.

Favourite book/movie? Least favourite book/movie?

Goblet of Fire is my favourite! As for least..I don’t know. Maybe Half-Blood Prince or Order of the Phoenix?

Favourite character?

This is hard! I relate most to Hermione.

Image result for hermione gif

Least favourite character?

Umbridge.

Favourite teacher?

Professor Sprout! Or Mcgonagall.

Least favourite teacher?

It’d have to be Umrbidge again.

Unpopular opinion about the series?

This might be a strange answer, but as I wrote a whole report about this a while ago, I’m going to go with it. I don’t think the series was under representative. In fact, it accurately represented Britain at the time of the first book being published. (If anyone wants proof, I will happily give you my 10-page, referenced, sourced report).

Anywayyy, I won’t be tagging anyone as I wasn’t tagged! So go ahead and join me if you thought this looked as fun as I did 🙂

Stacking the Shelves #78

Stacking the Shelves #78

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Tynga where we share books we’ve bought this week. Find out more and join in here!

It’s been a while now since I bought a book (yay for book bans!), and I’m now investing in a different bookish collection – my Pop Funkos.

I thought as I hopefully won’t be talking to you about books I’m buying for a while, I’d let you know about these instead. I’ve built on my Harry Potter collection a lot recently and I couldn’t resist telling you guys about something I picked up this week.

That’s right! I found a 10″ Niffler on a really good sale that I’ve wanted for ages. So I treated myself and added him to my collection! I put him next to a baby Niffler which is normal Pop size for perspective.

I’m posting photos of my Pops on my brand-new Instagram account for those who want to check it out!

Did you buy any books or merch this week?

Let’s Discuss! Harry Potter Studio Tour

Let’s Discuss! Harry Potter Studio Tour

Hello again my lovely readers! Today we have a very special post about the WB Harry Potter Studio Tour I visited earlier this week (I can’t believe it was less than a week ago!). For my birthday back in October, my other half Josh bought us tickets for the studio tour and to see the Cursed Child in May. I’m so excited for that!

We were lucky enough to book to visit the studios while Hogwarts in the Snow was still showing, and it made it even more beautiful somehow. I’ve never been to the studio before, so I’m really excited to share with you my first visit.

As soon as I spotted the sign on our way in, I was so overwhelmed. I couldn’t wait to get in!

There were many times in the tour when I felt like crying, and the opening of the doors to the Great Hall took my breath away.

Inside, the Great Hall is set up for the Yule Ball! It looks beautiful with the Christmas trees and icy decorations.

We moved on to see the many many sets alongside interesting facts/props from the movies. Here’s just one of many photos I took of the Gryffindor Common Room. I also loved seeing Dumbledore’s office and the Potions classroom.

The Forbidden Forest is the newest edition to the studios, and it was awesome to see Buckbeak in real life! I didn’t visit Aragog’s lair however, because I’m really not a fan of spiders :p

Next came the beautiful Hogwarts Express. I had tears in my eyes when I walked onto the platform. And of course we had to have the customary pictures with the trolley!

We stopped for dinner and a drink, and I had to try some Butterbeer. It’s very sweet but I did like it, and I got to take the cup home!

Not only did I get to see Privet Drive, the Knight Bus and the Bridge, I also got to see it in the snow! They had snow machines set up outside and it made the experience even more magical.

Inside again, we got to see even more props and amazing artwork. One of my favourites was definitely Fawkes.

Diagon Alley was one of the most incredible things. Being able to walk down the street was so cool.

But the thing that got me most was this room! I walked in, took one look at this amazing model and burst into tears. It was just so beautiful, especially covered in snow!

Of course, this experience was just magical. I’d recommend it for any Harry Potter fan and I’ll definitely visit again sometime!

This week’s T5W is officially Books to Give ______ as Gifts. I could have gone for purely books to give a Harry Potter fan, but I thought general gifts could be more interesting!

I adore this book has a Harry Potter fan! It’s just so gorgeous and you can see my full thoughts and many pictures in my review here.

Okay this is my absolute dream. How incredible is this Lego set? And if, like me, this might be a little out of your price range…they have many other cute sets available!

I couldn’t write this post without including WANDS! It’s the only thing I’m seriously considering buying when I visit the Studio in January.

The Crimes of Grindelwald - Baby Nifflers 2-Pack Vinyl Figures

Aren’t these just the cutest? I also might be lucky enough to find these babies in my stocking 😉

I had to include food in here somewhere! I love the idea of food from fictional worlds – here’s a whole post about it.

What would you recommend for Harry Potter fans?
