I figured it was time to do another bookish talk! :D I love writing these so I figured, why not? This will have more than just book-related things, because I feel talkative right now!
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
I’m sad to hear that this book is getting so many negative reviews - I loved it! It put me in such a good mood to go back to the Wizarding World. I think that people don’t realize a few important points. First, it’s a play, it’s not going to be read like the rest of the series. Second, nineteen years went by! ’Tis normal if the characters seem a little different, we have no idea what happened within 19 years. Read it with an open mind, and let familiarities make you smile!
Now, contemporary isn’t my favorite genre, but I have a lot of contemporary books here with me in Australia! Look out for a review of Since You’ve Been Gone coming up soon! I just think that they are such great summer reads! Welllll, it’s winter here, but I’m still in a summer state of mind. (That sounds like a title of a song... *googles* ... Hey it is a song!)
Blog Changes? Maybe?
I was wondering what you guys thought of my blog. I mean, I know that if you’re reading this you’re probably going to be a regular around here, but I was wondering what you honestly think about it. I was scrolling through it today and thought that all the white made it look quite... plain? But I also quite like it?
My Ilvermorny house!
So in honor of the Harry Potter craze going around, I went ahead and got myself sorted into my Ilvermorny house. You may or may not know that I’m a true-blue Ravenclaw in Hogwarts. When I took the Ilvermorny quiz and saw my result, I thought it meant I was more like Slytherin! Not that there’s anything wrong with it, but hey when you know your house and someone just says ‘no’ it comes as a surprise.
I’m in Horned Serpent!... What does that mean? I did some research and found that it represents the mind, and preferred intellectuals.
What’s your Ilvermorny house? :)
Here’s some stuff going on in my head when I’m here. No, I don’t mean any of these offensively or strangely in any way, they’re just in my head sometimes! ^-^
- "Oooh pretty birds! Peacocks! Parrots! And whatever this thing is...?"
- (When hearing crows) “Oh my gosh what is that?!”
- “I love the seaside I could live here”
- “Wait what did they just say...?”
- “I was expecting sunshine and it’s raining again”
- “I was expecting rain and it’s so sunny yay!”
- “Palm trees everywhere!”
- “Wild kangaroos!”
- “The stars must be so amazing if I go out in the middle of nowhere!”
- “Australian Dollars to USD to Euros... my head hurts”
- “I miss french bread...”
- “What is this magic called TimTams? They’re amazing!”
- “I still don’t know what this person said...”
- “Wish my friends and family were here to see this...”
Yeah... My mind’s all over the place haha ^-^
Ok I might be the ultimate nerd now... On top of joining the Science Association, I also joined the University Science Fiction and Fantasy Association... But it looks so fun! I can sense you guys judging me, stahp it XD
That’s it from me for tis bookish talk! It wasn’t really bookish, but oh well!
Have a great day!
