Happy Holidays!

Sorry for not being very regular with my posts, in 2017 my goal is to try and be a bit more organised and productive when it comes to my blog and my writing! 

I want to do proper posts and not just things I think up on the spot…basically I want to get better at planning. 

I hope that you’ve all had a great Christmas, if you do in fact celebrate it, if not I hope you’ve had a great couple of days anyway! 

I’ve not got much to say to be honest…I’ve been having a nice time with my family, opening presents and eating waaaaay too much! I’m so bloody full!

As you can see above, my dog is thoroughly enjoying his presents! 

Hopefully these posts will get better, comment down below how you’ve been celebrating the festive season! 

Speak soon! 

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Review (No Spoilers)

Title: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child 

Release Date: 2016

Author: JK Rowling

Rating: 3.5/5 stars 

I know there’s been a lot of negative opinions flowing around about this book, which is fine, but honestly I think they’re a bit harsh.

Yes, there are a lot of plot holes and some silly bits, HOWEVER, you have to think of it as a play, because that’s what it is! And if you read the stage directions and picture what it would look like on stage, I think it would be amazing.

I definitely want to go and see the play, and I did enjoy reading this book, a lot. 

I liked the story, I like getting to know these different characters (Scorpious I love you) and I had a major fangirl over reading about older Harry, Ron and Hermione.

I wasn’t sure that I would enjoy it as much because it’s a script, however, that didn’t impact on my reading experience at all and I actually quite liked it! I read it quicker, which if you’re like me and have loads of books on your TBR pile, is always a good thing. 

I really enjoyed this book and if you haven’t read it because you’re worried about not liking it, just give it a go! I personally don’t think you’ll regret it.

This book made me want to see the play and the cover is very pretty.

10/10 for making me all nostalgic and emotional.

Ps. The Cedric storyline was a very clever idea and I’m glad we got to read more about that, it made him feel a bit less like a ‘spare part’. 

Christmas Recommendation: Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle

Title: Let It Snow

Author: John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle 

Release Date: 2008

Rating: 4/5 stars

Since it’s officially the start of Christmas, I thought I would share one of my favourite Christmas reads with whomever may be reading this! 

It’s no surprise that John Green happens to be one of the authors of this book (as I am a bit of a fan), however, even if you don’t like John Green I still think you should give this book a chance! 

It’s uniquely written and has a clever storyline that twists and turns, you’ll find yourself laughing out loud and cheering the characters on throughout the story. 

It’s basically three stories intertwined together to create one story! It’s funny, simple and extremely festive. So if you’re looking for an easy read to get you into the Christmas spirit I’d definitely recommend this one!

It’s almost 10 years old now but I still don’t think enough people know about it, personally I’ve never read that many Christmas books and I never really see many on display, when I picked this one up a few years ago I was extatic! 

So give it a go and tell me what you think 🙂
