Saying Goodbye to Hogwarts

Saying Goodbye to Hogwarts

Posted September 28, 2020 in Bookish Things // 2 Comments

Growing up, the Harry Potter series was everything to me.  Books have always been at the center of my life, but Harry was special.  Different.  It was the glue that kept my small, misfit group of friends together.  From movie premieres to marathon reading the new books, this series was at the center of most of the happiest memories of my childhood. And now, it’s time to say goodbye. Everyone knows about J. K. Rowling and the horrible things she has said about and is doing to the transgender community.  Even for the stubbornest of us, we can’t continue to […]

Pottermore Sorting Tag

Pottermore Sorting Tag

Posted July 17, 2018 in Tags // 8 Comments

When Pottermore was announced, I took the day off work for the first day of entry into the site.  That was back when we didn’t really know what Pottermore was going to be – just an interactive experience for Harry Potter fans.  It was the most exciting thing announced for Potter fans since The Deathly Hallows.  You better believe I was there Day 1. One of the most fun things about Pottermore has been the sorting.  The wand, the Patronus, Ilvermorny and most of all the Most Official Hogwarts House sorting.  For myself, I was so nervous about the Hogwarts house.

Confession:  I Have DNF’d Books from Authors I Love to Reread

Confession: I Have DNF’d Books from Authors I Love to Reread

How many of you reread books? I’m a perpetual rereader.  Books are like old friends to me.  Even though I have so many books on my TBR… more than I’ve read so far in my life, actually… and yet I find myself drawn to old favorites again and again.  I know a lot of people who absorb books by certain authors, are absolute trash for them, and will read anything the world they write.  In the YA Book Blogger community, that seems to be Sarah J. Maas, Cassandra Clare, and V.E. Schwab. There are series I come to time and […]

Good morning my lovelies, and happy Saturday!  For today’s Ace of Shades feature, I’ve snagged a brand new book tag from Min and her Books.  Min is on the Doves team, but this tag is so great, I had to give it a go!  I’ve updated Question 4 to my team, team Irons, but do check out the original post and Min’s blog in general. 🙂 Ace of Shades takes place in the very mysterious, very dangerous City of Sin. Name a fictional city with a personality of it’s own! Gammorah from Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody First of […]

Bonjour my darling phoenixes.  I hope you’re all having a delightful September thusfar.  Up here in New England we’ve seen a little rain and a lot of humidity, but nothing to really complain about compared to the rest of the world.  My love goes out to everyone who has been affected by hurricanes Harvey and Irma… I can’t imagine living through that kind of weather and am constantly impressed by the strength and compassion of people joining together in a crisis. What’s New In the Bookish World? September has been a really lovely book month so far – honestly, it […]
