Today’s post is Wizarding Wares and Places I wish were real. Harry Potter is full of things I wish were real, I mean I wish the whole world was and Hogwarts was a school I went too. But because these sorts of posts are particularly popular I decided to make this a little smaller and only include things that weren’t too obvious so you won’t see wands, brooms and invisibility cloaks on this list.

As you may or may not know Monday 26th June 2017 marks the 20th Anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone. 20 Years. Can you believe that?
20 years ago I was 2 years old and doing what I don’t know. But 20 Years ago J.K Rowling and Bloomsbury brought Harry Potter and Hogwarts alive and the story is so iconic that it is still loved today.
Can we just take a moment to acknowledge that J.K Rowling has sold more than 450 Million Copies in 79 Languages. She is the first person to be taken off the Forbes richest person list because of how much money she gave to charity, she has set up Lumos and changed a-lot of our lives. So to mark the 20th Anniversary I am going to be doing ‘A Very Potter Week!’ Leading up to the 26th June.
This week is going to be filled with fun posts and of course I will be re-reading the books. Although the books will most definitely take me longer than a week to read so it may turn into a Very Potter Month for me… Here are a few sneak peeks on what you can expect.
If you wish to follow my rereading journey then be sure to follow me on Twitter and my Goodreads. So we can share this moment together!
I have a bunch of posts already planned but if you would like to see anything in particular then comment below with your ideas.
Have a magical week Guys and remember DON’T LET THE MUGGLES GET YOU DOWN.
Welcome Back to Top Ten
Tuesday. Well Wednesday because I really wanted to do this but I also wanted to get my review up for Love & You by Gretchen Gomez. So this is a day late but Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme set up by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is a Father’s Day freebie so I decided to do my TOP 10 Book Dad’s!
Firstly can I just start this off my saying, this was surprisingly really hard. I read a lot of YA and parent’s aren’t usually around in the books I read or if they are they are the reason in which the protagonist wishes to escape. Therefore this post will have a few from the same series rather than 10 different books!

Title: Love & You by Gretchen Gomez
one day i met a guy
who stole my heart,
we created a world
and another day

i took the tattered
pieces of this
broken soul and
– here lies the hurting, the healing, and the learning
(please be advised this book has mature content)

Today’s post is going to be something different and super fun.
I’m going to do a post on designing my dream reading room and library based on the company Arhaus.
Arhaus is an American company which provides an array of furniture, lighting and all your home needs. They also use natural materials which is something you don’t see very often with most big furniture retailers. I love that they use organic and natural materials.
I am not being paid or sponsored to do this post. I thought the idea was fun and I wanted to get creative and come up with my own Dream Reading Space!

Title: A Study in Charlotte by Brittany Cavallaro
Genre: YA Retelling – Mystery/ Crime
The last thing Jamie Watson wants is a rugby scholarship to Sherringford, a Connecticut prep school just an hour away from his estranged father. But that’s not the only complication: Sherringford is also home to Charlotte Holmes, the famous detective’s great-great-great-granddaughter, who has inherited not only Sherlock’s genius but also his volatile temperament. From everything Jamie has heard about Charlotte, it seems safer to admire her from afar.
From the moment they meet, there’s a tense energy between them, and they seem more destined to be rivals than anything else. But when a Sherringford student dies under suspicious circumstances, ripped straight from the most terrifying of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Jamie can no longer afford to keep his distance. Jamie and Charlotte are being framed for murder, and only Charlotte can clear their names. But danger is mounting and nowhere is safe—and the only people they can trust are each other.

Today I want to do a discussion on TBR lists and whether they help or hinder your reading experience.
TBR lists also known as ‘To Be Read’ lists for those of you who may not be familiar with them are extremely popular throughout the reading community. Each month many people post or video their choice of books to read that month but for me TBR’s have always been both a blessing and a curse.

Title: One Perfect Lie by Lisa Scottoline
Genre: Crime/ Mystery
Publisher: St. Martins Press
On paper, Chris Brennan looks perfect. He’s applying for a job as a high school government teacher, he’s ready to step in as an assistant baseball coach, and his references are impeccable.
But everything about Chris Brennan is a lie.
Susan Sematov is proud of her son Raz, a high school pitcher so athletically talented that he’s being recruited for a full-ride scholarship to a Division I college, with a future in major-league baseball. But Raz’s father died only a few months ago, leaving her son in a vulnerable place where any new father figure might influence him for good, or evil.
Heather Larkin is a struggling single mother who lives for her son Justin’s baseball games. But Justin is shy, and Heather fears he is being lured down a dark path by one of his teammates, a young man from an affluent family whose fun-loving manner might possibly conceal his violent plans.
Mindy Kostis succumbs to the pressure of being a surgeon’s wife by filling her days with social events and too many gin and tonics. But she doesn’t know that her husband and her son, Evan, are keeping secrets from her – secrets that might destroy all of them.
At the center of all of them is Chris Brennan. Why is he there? What does he want? And what is he willing to do to get it?
