Harry Potter Illustrated books by J.K. Rowling and illustrated by Jim Kay.
Book review 5 out of 5 Stars
I wasn’t a fan when the illustrated book for Sorcerer’s Stone was released. I thought that it was just another ripoff to make more money. Twenty-five dollars a book, this making $150 for the entire series! And we have to wait each year for the next book! I’m sure if it was released in one big bundle it would look like a ripoff for just another book copy of this series because there is other reprint editions too. I do like some of the editions now, but the prices are ridiculous for some of them. Continue reading “Harry Potter Illustrated Books”
My Current reads….
Hi all. A fresh start with 2017 has definitely helped my reading slump. I’ve read 10 books so far and I think I may be able to raise my Goodreads Book Challenge from 2016’s goal of 25 books.
Looking at all the books that I started reading last year but haven’t finished may be a little intimidating, but I’ve decided to tackle that pile on. It’s possible to get these books read if I read one book a month. And also I’ve been a mood reader, so sticking to just that one book will be a little difficult. Example I’ve been rereading Jane Eyre off and on for a year now, and even the thought of finally seeing that new movie hasn’t helped me finish that book. But I’ll still try.
In my last Instagram post I mentioned how difficult it is to be a mood reader sometimes. It’s mostly difficult for me because I don’t have that many did-not-finish (dnf) books. When I’ve read more than two chapters, I have usually decided then if I want to read the book or not, so if I decide not to read it I don’t feel guilty and felt that I’ve at least given the book a chance. So that photo up there is my current read, will finish reading soon, and hopefully will get back to reading sometime this year books. And I have been reading pretty good lately so I’m not intimidated by that pile.
Current Reads for March
I’m currently reading three books this month: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling, Rogue One (a Star Wars story) by Alexander Freed, and Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Continue reading “My Current Reads”
Today was a pretty lazy slow day. I did get some reading done, though it’s never enough to the amount of time I wish for. I did find time to read outside today. Reading outside has been a goal this past week and I’ve been really looking forward to this me-time. It’s been a real refreshing thing that has started to uplift my mood, along with the fact that it’s summertime, one of my favorite seasons. Peanut and I highly recommend finding some time to read outside.
So reading. What shall I read?… Well of course thanks to my habit of reading more than one book at a time, I am currently reading 3 books… Continue reading “TBR Tuesday June 28th”
Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets
Here’s another book soundtrack for you all. I’ve been rereading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and with that I’ve thought of making a little soundtrack from my music collection.
Black Dove by #ToriAmos
(🎧 “They don’t know that you’ve already lived on the other side of the Galaxy” 🎧) Such a magical song. Love Tori Amos too. 💗

“But you would think, wouldn’t you,” he erupted suddenly, pulling the letter back out of his pocket, “that getting hit forty-five times in the neck with a blunt axe would qualify you to join the Headless Hunt?” – Nearly Headless Nick. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
Ahh Tuesday. Here we go. The TBR Tuesday time. But a little different this time. Continue reading “TBR Tuesday June 21st”
So I think I’m just about out of this reading slump here. So I can finally look forward to these TBR Tuesday posts without feeling like I’m posting the same books each week.
I’ll be posting my May Wrap Up and June Preview posts soon! I did read 3 books this month so I’m really happy about that. But in the meantime, here’s something to ponder…
What in the world am I going to read next?!?!!
