November Wrap-Up 2018 – Blogmas Day 8

Published January 8, 2019 by I Blog


Today I’m doing a book wrap-up for November! Let’s get straight into it!

This month, all the books that I read were by Rick Riordan.

Percy Jackson:

Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth 

Half Boy. Half God. ALL Hero.
Honestly, blowing up another school was the last thing I wanted to do.

As the son of a Greek God, I’ve had my share of near-death disaster – and now my arch enemy Luke wants to invade our camp via an ancient labyrinth.
If he succeeds, thousands of bloodthirsty monsters will attack. So it’s goodbye sunshine, hello darkness as four of us descend into the terrifying underground and beyond . . .

The Crimes Of Grindelwald – Blogmas Day 6

Published January 8, 2019 by I Blog


Today we’re talking about Fantastic Beasts the Crimes of Grindelwald.

Let’s start at the beginning – Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find them. We’re just going to call this fb (okay?)

So, I really liked fb. I thought it was really cool how they were making this interesting and new concept into a film. I love how we get the magic that is associated with Harry Potter, but without Harry Potter. Without using many spells, this book introduces the concept of magic using the introduction of magical creatures.

I loved the original fantastic beasts for many reasons. The Hufflepuff representation, the amazing graphics, the original storyline, how we  get context for the Harry Potter films and most importantly the beasts.

Published January 8, 2019 by I Blog


It’s Blogmas day 2!

Today I’m giving you 25 gift ideas for a reader!

  1. Books (duh!)
Kind of obvious, but books are just a really good thing to get a reader!
2. Book series
A good book series is an epic gift. I would recommend Percy Jackson (it’s so good!)
3. A dictionary book mark.
These are so good! It’s literally like a mini electronic dictionary! They really work and you can look up any words that you don’t know whilst reading.
Electronic Dictionary Bookmark: White
4. Book darts
These are basically like cool, fancy book marks that point at the exact line of the book that you’re on
Bookdarts bookmarks - 50 count tin - bronze

5. Book lamp.
These are mini lamps that you use to read when it’s slightly darker.

6. A book shaped lamp.
These are so cute and just aesthetic! They literally look like books!

7. Bookshelves.
A bookworm can never have too many bookshelves.

8. A signed copy of their favourite book.
This is really thoughtful and shows that you listen when they’re talking to you about books. A signed copy is the perfect addition to any collection!

9. Tickets to a book tour.
Book tours are epic. If you can a reader tickets to a book tour that they’re hyped about, then they’ll love you forever!

10. Tea (or any hot drink)
You want a cozy drink for when you’re reading. Tea is great.

11. Book gift vouchers.
Gift vouchers for places like WHSmiths, or Barnes and Nobles are great and a safe oftion. If you don’t know what kind of books a reader wants, get them a gift card.

12. iTunes gift card.
For audio books.

13. Fuzzy blankets.
For comfort whilst reading.
Image result for fuzzy blankets
14. Socks!
Fuzzy socks are just the best!

15. Bookish Tees.

16. A book subscription box.
These are super fun. You could get a mystery book box or a themed one. There are hundreds of options out there.

17. A book themed tablet or phone case.
These are always super cute and super aesthetically pleasing. If you DT one based on their favourite book, they’ll love it.

18. A bath tray.
These are super handy, these can help avoid dropping your book in the bath!

19. A kindle or e-reader
I love my kindle. It’s great for travel as you can have hundreds of books for just the weight of 1 tablet.

20. An audible subscription.
Audible is for audiobooks. If you get them a subscription, they can listen to as many as they want.

21. A book gift basket.
Containing tea, snacks, books and more (this is more of a DIY).
Image result for book gift basket
22. A trivia game based on their favourite book.
These are super fun to play!
