September Wrap-Up and October TBR

Hi everyone! Unfortunately, this Wrap-Up is going to be the most disappointing I’ve ever written, but I’ve had one hell of a month so I’m trying not to be too upset with myself about it! I’m also still on track to read 70 books this year, which is 20 above my original goal of 50.

July Wrap-Up and August TBR

I’m very proud to say that I managed to read at least one book by every author I had books signed by at YALC! Saying that, July was still definitely a slow month for me and I’m excited for keeping more on top of my blog and TBR in August. Hopefully doing the Magical Readathon will help with that!

Let’s Discuss! Birthday Haul

Hi all! Today I’m here to tell you all about my birthday haul. I’m so lucky to be surrounded by such incredible people who know me so well, and I just had to tell you guys what my friends and family got for me.

My boyfriend went Harry Potter crazy, and bought me loads of things including this beautiful book, The Art of Harry Potter. It’s massive and it’s amazing, and I can’t stop flicking through it.

He also bought me these adorable Lego Harry and Hedwig. I built them as soon as I unwrapped them and I love them so much! They fit perfectly on my Harry Potter shelf.

I’ve been talking about how much I wanted to watch Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them so I was very happy to find this 🙂

You might think that’s the end of the Harry Potter gifts but in fact it’s not! He also bought me tickets to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in London next year, and tickets to visit the Harry Potter studios over Christmas! I’m so so excited!

I just had to finish off by telling you about the last present! You may not have known this about me, but I LOVE Friends. With a passion. And I’ve been looking at buying this for ages, so I was so happy to unwrap it.

My lovely friends and family also really spoilt me – giving me loads of things including many baking gifts (a really cute vintage style cake tin!), a photography book and pamper sets. My close friends spoilt me so much, including this gorgeous candle and little Harry Potter keychain.

Thank you for reading!
