I have had the basics of this post drafted for longer than I care to admit but it’s something I have wanted to do for so long! Sometimes when I’m reading a book, I get vibes of a certain Hogwarts House from it. It could be the atmosphere, the characters, the themes – honestly anything! I’ve see quite a lot of these posts/videos in the past and they always interest me as I love seeing what houses people put books in and for what reasons. Today I’m focusing on Slytherin – read on to check the books I think have Slytherin vibes! Continue reading “Slytherin House Book Recs”
It’s been an incredibly long time since i planned my venture in to the world of Carry On. I have been saying for years now i would be getting around to it in the next few months, maybe next month, maybe next Halloween… but no, it never happened. Then the fancy copies of Wayward Son were released and that was a kick up the bum to get reading!
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!

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!

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.
