Harry Potter Moment of the Week (1) Which Books Would You Recommend to Draco?

Harry Potter Moment of the Week (1) Which Books Would You Recommend to Draco?

Today I’ve decided to join a new meme-Harry Potter Moment of the Week, hosted by Leah of Uncorked Thoughts and Micheline of Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to get Harry Potter fans together and discuss our favourite things about the series; be it a favourite moment, character, magical item, spell, quote or object from the books, films or J.K Rowling herself. You can find the list of future topics here. If you’d like to take part, visit today’s post and sign up with the linky. Today’s topic: Which books would you recommend to Draco? Something tells me that Draco […]


U is for Umber #AtoZChallenge

U is for Umber #AtoZChallenge

Today I’m continuing with the A-Z Blogging Challenge. I’ll be doing a variety of posts, including haikus and poems, arts and crafts, fashion and beauty, recipes and more!       For the letter ‘U’ I have chosen Umber-a range of earthy brown shades, some of which are more yellow toned, some more gray and some more reddish (like burnt umber). It’s named after a natural earth pigment containing iron oxide and manganese oxide. In Italian this pigment is called terra di ombra, or ‘earth of Umbria’ (a mountainous region in Italy). It may also relate to the Latin word umbra, which means […]


Click Me Quick (9)

Click Me Quick (9)

Today it’s time for ‘Click me Quick’- a feature where I share the blog posts, web articles and videos that have uplifted, interested or inspired me over the past week. This week the internet has been dominated by the Ice Bucket Challenge (which is just as well as it’s for a very  good cause). But I still found some bookish gems this week as well. After the sad passing of fellow A-Z Challenge blogger Tina Downey, there has been an outpouring of amazing tributes from the blogging community. The A-Z team is hosting a sunflower tribute on Saturday 8th September […]

[Image by Jeremy Keith, CC-BY-2.0] Today I’m continuing with the Blogging from A-Z Challenge hosted by Arlee Bird and his team of awesome bloggers. My theme is: Elements and features of speculative fiction and entertainment. So throughout April I will be blogging about characters, objects and themes that appear in sci-fi, fantasy and dystopian series. Today’s post is all about Zombies. Zombies are undead beings, often portrayed as rotting corpses risen from the grave. In legend and folklore they are said to feed off the brains of the living. Lacking their own, they wander mindlessly and clumsily with vacant expressions on their faces, often making a groaning sound. […]

My theme is: Elements and features of speculative fiction and entertainment. So throughout April I will be blogging about characters, objects and themes that appear in sci-fi, fantasy and dystopian series. Today’s post is all about Ogres and giants. Ogres are large, hideous monsters from mythology and folklore with  a penchant for devouring humans (particularly children). They were often described in fairy tales to scare children into obedience. The word ogre is French, but there are a lot of different possibilities as to where […]
