I’M DONE MY HARRY POTTER RE-READ AND I’M AN EMOTIONAL WRECK (but also counting down the days until my Cursed Child pre-order ships!). Click here to read my last Rediscovering Harry post on Mind the Gap!
Re-discovering Harry: The Half-Blood Prince [re-direct to Mind the Gap]
Briefly putting my hiatus on…um, hiatus…to tell you that the sixth installment of my Harry Potter series is now up on Mind the Gap – click here to read it!
It’s not a break-up, it’s a hiatus
Hello readers of this blog!
Just wanted to update: starting today (June 1st), I won’t be posting as much here, except for the occasional concert or ARC review. I’m dedicating more time to my baby (aka Mind the Gap), so you can find me there pretty much all the time. It’s chock-full of pop culture so if you’ve liked anything I’ve written here, I’m sure you can find something interesting there – including today’s post which is, of course, about The 1975 :)
Thanks for reading!
Re-Discovering Harry: The Order of the Phoenix [re-direct to Mind the Gap]
Despite starting early, it still took me ages to finish Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix aka the longest book in the series. Click here to see if it lived up to my memories (spoiler alert: it introduces my favourite character!)!
WCW: Luna Lovegood [re-direct to Mind the Gap]
I write a Woman Crush Wednesday post every month for Mind the Gap, and this month is devoted to the fabulous (and fictional) Luna Lovegood. Click here to see why Luna makes me proud to be a Ravenclaw.
Re-discovering Harry: The Goblet of Fire [re-direct to Mind the Gap]
It’s once more time for my Re-discovering Harry series on Mind the Gap and this month, I’m talking about the tome that is Goblet of Fire. Click here to see if it still holds up to my memories of reading it for the first time when I was ten!
Re-discovering Harry: The Prisoner of Azkaban [re-direct to Mind the Gap]
This month was dedicated to my favourite Harry Potter installment, Prisoner of Azkaban! Click here to read my post comparing the book to the movie!
Re-discovering Harry: The Chamber of Secrets [re-direct to Mind the Gap]
Part two of my Re-discovering Harry series is up on Mind the Gap – click here to see what I thought about Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets!
Re-discovering Harry: The Philosopher’s Stone [re-direct to Mind the Gap]
Over on Mind the Gap, I’m starting a monthly series on Harry Potter. I’ve decided to do a full re-read and re-watch of all things Harry, so of course I’m writing about it! Click here for the first installment where I talk about Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone!
Liebster Award Part 3!
Thanks so much to Katie (katiejaysbookblog) for the nomination! I appreciate it and you should check out her blog!
1) What are your hobbies?
Reading, writing, drinking tea, and eating (I’m joking about that last one)(not really, though).
2) Whats your favorite book?
Outside of the Harry Potter series, my favourites include Gail Carson Levine’s Ella Enchanted and Robin Benway’s Audrey, Wait!.
3) What fandoms (if any) are you in?
Harry Potter, of course, and Sherlock, to a certain extent (I have a fondness for Sherlock gifs!).
4) What’s your favorite music?
I’ll listen to anything, but I gravitate towards pop-punk and alternative. My top five bands are: You Me At Six, Panic! at the Disco, All Time Low, The Maine, and either Fall Out Boy or Paradise Fears, depending on my mood!
5) Pancakes or Waffles and why?
Well, #wafflesaturday is my favourite day of the week (that’s when my sister makes waffles for breakfast), so I’m going to say WAFFLES!
6) Left or Right handed?
7) What was the last movie you saw?
In theatres: The Peanuts Movie, which I loved. At home: Legally Blonde Two: Red, White & Blonde which I couldn’t remember at all.
8) Where are 3 places you’d like to visit?
Ireland, Greece, and San Francisco!
9) Would you rather have your favorite character come into your life or be inserted into your favorite novel?
Ooo, this is a tough one! I’d say be inserted into my favourite novel; I’ve always wanted to visit Hogwarts, and the world in Ella Enchanted is just as magical, full of goblins and fairies and attractive princes. Audrey, Wait! takes place in LA, which I wouldn’t mind visiting either!
10) Favorite beverage?
Tea! I have a large, almost ridiculous, collection (mostly from England, because the Brits really do know their tea).
11) What are your goals for 2016 (if any)?
My goal is to read at least 120 books, finish a manuscript (any of them that are currently in progress), and possibly start querying agents (once I finish writing something!).
Thanks again, Katie!
I’ve done the Liebster award twice before, so I won’t nominate blogs (mostly because I don’t have the brain power to come up with questions), but here are the last eleven blogs I followed – you should check them out!
