Hey :) I'm 25, from Northern Ireland and no longer new to blogging. I love all things TV, books, food, music and film as well as going out with friends. This is hopefully somewhere you'll be able to come if you feel you need a laugh or even just to stay in touch. Life can be hard and confusing, so

  1. I re-read Philosopher’s Stone this year! *-* I didn’t have the chance to pick up Cursed Child and the Fantastic Beasts screenplay, but i’m really curious about them and also loved the Fantastic Beasts movie, so i hope to pick them up as soon as possible! *-*

  2. Interesting that Cursed Child made it on your list! I really couldn’t stand it, it felt like unnecessary adding to the world. I loved Fantastic Beasts though, Newt is too precious 🙂

  3. Aw nice!! Hope you get them soon! 🙂 the cursed child was a good way to sort of finish off the Harry Potter series, and if you enjoyed the film of Fantastic Beasts then it’s definitely worth reading the screenplay! xx

  4. Aw no I haven’t seen the film yet! Have you? Thanks for the link, I’ll definitely be checking out your list to add to my TBR pile! Thanks for reading 😊 xx

  5. Aw sorry to hear that! Although this is just a list of the books I read this year, not my favourites 🙈 I barely do any reading now, it’s embarrassing! However I completely agree about Newt – can’t wait for the next one! xx

  6. Yeah I watched it, obviously it wasn’t as good as the book. But why do they always seem to change the stories of books when it goes to film! xx

  7. Some great books there!! I have The Night Circus and have picked it up to read and put it down again so many times lol I’ll have to get back into it xx

  8. Thank you! I didn’t get reading as many as I wanted to, but The Night Circus is definitely one I will go back on in a few years time! Let me know what you think of it when you get it finished? xx

  9. Thanks I will!! I did a reading challenge last year which was good, I read a lot of the classics I wanted to read so enjoyed that!! I’m reading Carrie by Stephen King at the mo, what are you reading? Xx
