HELLOOOOOOO!! I hope you’re all doing well on this lovely Monday. Today I’ve decided I’m going to do a little tag as a sort of re-introduction to coming back to my blog! I haven’t done this tag before and I know it’s mostly done on YouTube so I’m just going to answer the questions I can!
This tag was originally created by Brenda C over on youtube which you can check out here! As for the questions, let’s begin!! Read more ›
Hey everyone! So today I thought I’d take part in a tag. Now although I haven’t actually been tagged to do this, I watched JadeyRaeReads video (which you can watch here) and she tagged anyone who wanted to do it. So this is what brings us here today. Read more ›
Hey guys, it’s been a while since I last posted something but after reading this book and then seeing the movie at the weekend, it’s something I want to talk about and see how you all feel about it if you’ve read the book and seen the movie.
Before we do go ahead I do have to warn you, this post WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS!!!!
Hey guys! So I mentioned at the end of one of my recently posted reviews that I would update you guys on what’s been happening the past year or so and explain why I haven’t been active on my blog until now.
Hey guys, so this is a very late post but I’ve been so exhausted the last few days I’ve not had time to post anything so I do apologise! I was contacted by Molly Kay from Arhaus and asked if I would do a post on ‘My Dream Reading Space’ so I was thrilled to finally be able to get out all the wonderful and fab ideas that I have in my head for my own reading room.
To start with I want a huge room full of bookshelves from floor to ceiling and each one to be themed or have a certain genre/colour on it. For example, I want one bookcase just completely dedicated to Harry Potter things so all my books, DVDs and Harry Potter memorabilia can sit on it. There would also be a bookshelf for my YA novels to be laid out in colour order or alphabetical order. I would then have a shelf for my vinyls and record player to sit on so that wasn’t actually in the way of anything.
Now as well as this being my reading space, I would also have it as my music room to keep all my instruments so I would have a space in the room where I can keep my guitars, bass guitars and CDs/DVDs. This would mean that everything I ever need would be all in the same place and wouldn’t be in anybody’s way (although I can’t promise there won’t be the odd book or five lying around elsewhere in the house).
In terms of what kind of bookshelves I’d like here are just a few examples of what I would love to have in my own personal library;
Vittoria Bell’ Arte Wall Unit: This beautiful piece is what I would love for my HP collection and books. It’s so vintage looking and I fell in love with it as soon as I seen it!
Athens Modular Library: Now this is the bookshelf I’d have for all my YA books/classics. IT’S LIKE THE BOOKSHELF IN BEAUTY AND THE BEAST!!! LOOK HOW NICE IT IS!!!!
Spencer Bookcase with Panel Doors: I was automatically drawn to this bookcase when looking for one for my record player/vinyls/CDs etc. The panel doors are the perfect addition for an old vintage record player and I just adore the whole look of it.
Now for the general feel/vibe/look of the reading space, this is the sort of idea I’d like;

Trying to describe and come up with my perfect reading space/room would keep me here for days because I do have so many ideas and styles I’d love for it so I think I’ll leave it here and maybe do another one in the near future!
I’d just like to take this moment to thank Molly for getting in touch with me and asking me to do this post because I never would’ve thought to have done a post like this myself! If you do get a chance then please check out the Arhaus website. Their products and the style of them are just stunning and hopefully one day I’ll be able to afford all the things I want from the site!! The bookcases I listed in the post are from the site also so please do have a look!
Please let me know what your dream reading space/room/area would be like in the comments or even do your own post and send me the link so I can check it out!
This is one of my favourite days simply because it’s all about books! Working with kids too means I get to see them in all their wonderful costumes today as well which is just great as they all put so much effort into their characters!
This World Book Day, I’m currently reading The Warsaw Anagrams by Richard Zimler and so far I’m really enjoying it. Books have always been one of my favourite things and they’re the one thing that can keep me calm and help keep my mind off things. After being off work sick for 2 months I managed to get through a few of the books I wanted to read and I even went back to the library for the first time in years which was fun!
World Book Day is a day I love as it encourages children to read and let them see the fun and all the different worlds books can bring to them and that’s something I enjoy seeing as it’s so rare nowadays to find children who enjoy reading. If you’re looking for something to read, the World Book Day website has posted a list of “50 books that will change your life.” You can check that list out here.
I hope you all have a fantastic book day and enjoy celebrating it in whichever way you are! Let me know if you’re doing anything in the comments!! I’ll be going back to work unfortunately but after that I’ll be spending the rest of my night trying to finish my book.
