The Aesthetically Pleasing Book Tag!

Hello Bookaholics!

I have received some aethetically pleasing books from Allen & Uniwn over the past few months that I am yet to read and I have found this book tag that allows me to show off these books and some of my own!

I found this tag on the DreamlandBookBlog (where I find many of the tags I complete); though it was created by Book Syrup on YouTube. A link to the original can be found here.

Book Lovers Day – August 9

 

Happy Book Lovers’ Day!!

You’re probably wondering what I’m on about, because of course it’s Book Lovers’ Day; every day is Book Lovers’ Day. Well yes I know that but according to timeanddate.com today – August 9 – is an official recognised holiday called Book Lovers’ Day!

So what does this all mean and what can you do with all this new and exciting information?

Well Book Lovers’ Day is a day for Book Lovers and Bibliophiles around the globe to spread the bookish cheer with other Book Lovers and Bibliophiles. It is a day to treat yourselves to with some quality reading time, a new book, or even some bookish merch. Call up all your friends and tell them about this fantastic fun holiday, because many of us may be at school or work it does not mean that we cannot celebrate this crazy fun holiday.

Fun Fact!

Book Lovers’ Day is known as a National holiday in the United States.

 

A few fun ways to celebrate this holiday are;

  • Buy the book lover in your life – whether it be you or a friend – a book or some book or some bookish merch. I gave my friend three out of the thirteen books in A Series Of Unfortunate Events series by Lemony Snicket.
  • Show off your favourite books and make everyone jealous (especially me). A few of my favourite books are The Book Theif, Lady Midnight and Two Boys Kissing. 
  • Clean, relocate and/or rearrange your bookshelves. A good way to clear your mind and heart is to clean up and do something time consuming/ slow that involves something you love will make this day a whole lot more relaxing (unless you’re that person who stresses over the order of their books).
  • Slip into a pair of comfy pyjamas or track pants/sweats and wrap yourself in a  warm fluffy blanket – because winter can be a bitch – pick up a good book and just relax.
  • Make tea in your favourite mug and pick up your current read!
  • Visit your local library and/or bookstore and wish all the lovely staff there a Happy Book Lovers’ Day.
  • Encourage your friends and family to pick up a book, even just for today. (Volunteering to wash the dishes may help your campaign).
  • GET OUT OF THAT READING SLUMP!
  • and lastly; Don’t forget to have fun and stay bookish!

 

Have a Happy Book Lovers’ Day xx

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HARRY POTTER!! + Cursed Child Unbagging

Today is the day we take out our wands and don our Hogwarts robes, holding our heads and wands high for our master Harry Potter. Once a boy who conquered evil, now a man who lives inside each and every one of our hearts.

Happy Birthday, Harry Potter!

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child is a story based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany and has been made into a play by Jack Thorne.

It is the eighth installment in the Harry Potter series and is the first Harry Potter story to be adapted into a stage play, shown in two parts with the intention to be seen consecutively in the two sessions (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings. The play can only be seen in London’s West End, premiering July 30.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

I cannot wait to begin reading this book!!

I will be posting a review once I have finished this book, but till then, look watch my Instagram for updates and news for the blog!

 

Love,

Bree xx

Book Challenge May 3

What books got you guys into reading??

 

For me, it was the Rondo series by Emily Rodda.

This series was the first magical series I’ve ever read and are most likely the first full series also.

And now I finally have my own – even if they are secondhand from the library and have the college library name and the word CANCELED stamped onto various parts of the book – I love them none the less. Especially since the dust jackets have been amazingly preserved and kept if amazing condition.

I was ecstatic when I picked these books up.

Just can we all take a second to appreciate the spines on these books.

They are pure magic (even the dust jackets are beautiful).

 

Till Tomorrow,
