With my long commutes to work, I’ve been reading a lot more but also listening to more podcasts. AGES ago I did a post called Podcast Series where I planned to start talking about podcasts I enjoy; bookish or other. I didn’t follow through but I’m back with it again now! I’ve struggled to know when I am best listening to podcasts and I’ve now cracked it and it’s best when I’m travelling or walking. This post is about one of my current favourites! Continue reading
There has been a lot of talk about this movie in the last few months, mostly bad, but some good. It hindered my thoughts of the movie going in to it, and honestly i had a bad taste in my mouth before i even stepped in to the cinema screen. But i wanted to try it out.
Last week I went to Dublin to spend time with friends at my first LeakyCon (and first full convention!) and I had the best time! For anyone who doesn’t know, LeakyCon is a Harry Potter convention. Before the trip, I planned on doing only one post about it but honestly it would be just such a long huge post that I think I want to do about two or three. There were so many magical (just let me use this word a couple times in relation to Harry Potter please) things that happened and the panels were so amazing! Continue reading
Last weekend i embarked on my fourth trip to the studios, in which i once again marveled at how small Daniel Radcliffe actually is, drank Butterbeer and walked down Diagon Ally. I realised that i’ve never written a blog post about how much i love this experience and how much it amazes me every time i go, especially when taking first-timers with me who are taking everything in. Here’s a little bit about my experiences after my fourth trip.

Popular culture references are something that cannot be avoided. They’re everywhere and we make them in day to day life more than we’d imagine. They are popping up in songs, movies and even more commonly, books.
I know Sarah recently did a Pottermore re-sorting and I wanted to join the trend! My friend Charlotte over at Wonderfully Bookish also did a similar post and I loved her post format so I’m slightly stealing it! I love Pottermore mainly because of the beautiful illustrations and the extra info, like what the Hufflepuff common room looks like or individual pages for each character. It’s basically an encyclopaedia now, which I adore. Continue reading
The time has come when i feel like everyone who wants to has read or seen Fantastic Beasts by J.K. Rowling. It has easily been one of the biggest movies of the year as we were thrust back in to the Wizarding World, something we have all be hoping for, for a long time. I managed to see the movie during the first weekend of its release, and i’ve recently just finished the screenplay. Here are my thoughts on both of them, what i liked and didn’t and what my hopes are for this world! (Contains spoilers).
