Well hey there  readers and nerds alike, apparently I’ve now got just a little over 100 followers which is fantastic seeing as  only started out this blog last week!! And since it’s coming up to summer and my birthday is merely two days away ( meaning more books) i decided that a giveaway would rightly show my gratitude towards all of you guys
so without further ado:

  • To be in a chance of winning you MUST be following me, booksareportals ( will be watching)
  • Anybody who lives in a country that the book depositary ships to is eligible ( International giveaway)
  • One winner will be chosen to pick ONE book
  • The books above or any books written by the authors shown are your selection
  • Reblog and/or like this post to enter ( no giveaway blogs please)
  • The giveaway will run until 20TH OF AUGUST MIDNIGHT GMT ( I’m away half of August so we must wait till I’m back )
  • Make sure your ask box is open and that you are comfortable with giving away your address (I will keep your location secure)

Good luck to you all. I managed to restrain myself from turning Effie Trinket on all of you and making quotes about favourable odds, so just have a nice summer reading
p.s even if you don’t win I highly recommend reading Patrick Rothfuss cause I need more people in this fandom, it is barren.

Can’t believe that it’s been seven years since this has been published.

I didn’t get it at midnight like a lot of other fans, but instead strolled into my nearest Waterstones at about 9:30 and was able to grab a copy without the hassle of any queues. On the way back to the car, I saw a girl sat on a bench, already through a good portion of her book.

I managed to read the book in about 6 hours. Getting to the end was a bit of a bittersweet moment. Harry Potter was a big part of my childhood - Hogwarts really was a safe place where I could immerse myself and forget the harsh realities of life. Also, I was 16 when Deathly Hallows was released, and had finished complusory education (back then you could finish school at 16). It felt like me and Harry had finished one part of our lives, and moving on to the next adventure, however mundane it might be.

I’ve started rereading the books again since I have not done so for about 6 years, and I still imagine everything like I first did 13 years ago when I first picked up the books. Hogwarts has welcomed me home.

I have a TBR pile the size of Mount Everest. Yet, it sometimes happens that I find a book that I just start reading immediately on a whim. I feel like I’m cheating on all the books that have been waiting for months on my TBR…
