The Literary Emporium

Chat Header

I first found the Literary Emporium when Carrie Fletcher posted on Instagram about some of their amazing pieces. Ever since I’ve been hooked on their bookish items and keep regularly checking their website for updates. It’s a constant struggle being a student with little money because it means that I can’t buy all the lovely items that I really want. But receiving them after waiting is so satisfying! The Literary Emporium is definitely one of my favourite online shops, they make me want to dress head to toe in books (I’m not entirely sure that’s socially acceptable sadly!)

John Green Books vs Movies

Adaptation Header

It seems like every John Green novel is going to eventually be turned in to a movie. First The Fault In Our Stars and now Paper Towns has been released the John Green hype is officially back in full force for many booklovers.

But this last few days I’ve had chance to wander the (expensive) streets, and my first stop was Foyles at Charing Cross. I’d never been to Foyles and had heard numerous stories that made it sound like absolute words-on-a-page heaven. So as soon as I arrived in London I marched my family the whole thirty minute walk to find this wondrous store. Continue reading “My First Foyles Trip”

Booktube A Thon 2015 Wrap-Up

Wrap Up Header

I’ve seen so much dedication from everyone taking part, determined to read as much as they could and achieve those seven goals set! It’s been an amazing thing to be a part of on YouTube and Twitter and i’ve spoken to so many people about books it’s been a little overwhelming! However, I sadly haven’t been as dedicated due to a very busy schedule (meeting with fellow team member Sophie to gossip.) Hope was not lost and here is my BookTubeAThon wrap up for 2015!

Readathon Header

The time is upon us… BookTubeAThon 2015 is finally here!

If you didn’t know, BookTubeAThon is a week-long (August 3rd to August 9th) reading marathon for readers to basically read as much as they possibly can in that week (there’s a lot of ‘reads’ in that sentence.) There are different challenges every year to do with what you will read, but the choices of books are ultimately down to you! There is far more information about BookTubeAThon HERE that you can check out! Continue reading “Booktube A Thon 2015”
