The unpopular opinions tag has been floating around booktube and book blogs for a while now and I thought now was finally the time I put on my big girl pants and shared some of my unpopular opinions too. So here are 5 books which I didn’t really like…Continue reading “Unpopular Opinions: 5 Books I Didn’t Enjoy.”

The Hogwarts Book Tag
Fellow Witches, Wizards and Muggles. Today I am coming to you with the Hogwarts Tag which I saw on Kat @lifeandotherdisasters blog. As you know I am a major Harry Potter fan, I post about it all the time so I couldn’t let this tag opportunity slip by.
Are you a Pure Blood or a Half-Blood?
In order to find this out I took this test which was suggested by Kat. I am happy to be a half-blood!

Harry Potter Studio Tour Haul
Hello Witches, Wizards, Muggles & No-Majs.
I am back to do my Harry Potter Studio Tour Haul for all the magical goodies I picked up during my trip last week. If you have yet to read my post about my experience there then you can do so by click here; Harry Potter Studio Tour.
Before going to the Studio Tour I told myself I was just going to go ahead and buy whatever I fancied… that logic came from having such a crappy time at work lately and thinking I can spend my wages on things that will make me happy to come home to. I actually did really well at reigning myself in and not fangirling too much to buy every little thing.
So let’s see what magical goodies I got shall we?
Harry Potter Studio Tour
Hello Witches, Wizards, Muggles and No-Majs!
On Tuesday I visited the greatest place on earth… The Harry Potter Studio Tour in Watford and it was phenomenal. It was the second time I have visited the studio tour, the first time was about six years ago and it did not have the Hogwarts Express, Forbidden Forest nor were you able to enter Privet Drive. So although it was my second time, it was more like my first once again.
Firstly getting to the tour was an experience. It took us about four hours to drive down and we had booked on for the 12:30 tour. They say the tour itself lasts three hours but you can stay for as long as it is open, due to having to drive back we left at 5:30 although I could have definitely stayed forever. Because I don’t want to ruin the tour for everybody I will only be including some of the pictures I took that day. However I have recently made a new Harry Potter dedicated Instagram where I will post more.
So go ahead and follow that for more Potter Goodness @swishandflick94.
J.K Rowling’s Wizarding World Unboxing
Today I am coming at you with my first ever Unboxing for the J.K Rowling Wizarding World Crate produced by Loot Crate. I’m sure you all know how much of a crazy Harry Potter fangirl I am, I mean I talk about it ALL the time.
The J.K Rowling’s Wizarding World Box costs £39.00 with shipping included so it may seem a little on the pricey side but it only ships every odd month whereas other subscriptions boxes ship every month and cost around the same. I personally like how it’s only a subscription box that ships every odd month rather than every month, it makes me more excited to receive it.
This months theme was ‘Enchanting Essentials.’ There are numerous plans you can pick for this box depending on your size and house because all their boxes come with at least one item of clothing. I, myself chose Gryffindor and the Medium size because I tend to wear the t-shirts to bed.

Ten Fantasy/Dystopian Series to try this Summer!
Schools out for Summer! At least here in the UK it is, although you wouldn’t think summer was here with the constant rain were having. But whilst I’m wrapping up warm, some of you might be grabbing your suitcases, sunglasses and enjoying the heat. You know one thing that would make it better? A book!
So for this post I am going to be recommending you 10 fantasy/dystopian book series to pick up this summer. For me summer was always the perfect time to get into Fantasy books because my brain would only be focused on Work rather than Work and University. So I could lose myself in a world and commit myself to a series with 6 books without feeling guilty or pressured.
