I’ve got cell reception again...yay!! We had a lovely weekend at a lodge for my hubby’s work end year function. Our little cottage was beautiful and of course I had to take a bookish photo with the decor...lol
I’m still busy with HP and the Deathly Hallows...I haven’t had a lot of time to read, but I’m hoping... So the #twirlingpages you see is my HP book and look at my little Ron Thanks Hayley@all_things_book_ish_box •••
What are you guys busy reading?
I present to you the amazing @all_things_book_ish_box
A Magical Christmas box
This box was jam packed with the best goodies EVER...I absolutely loved unboxing every single product
It was a pretty magical experience
From the adorable tote bag that I literally squealed over(a product of @all_things_book_ish_box and @papercute_ ) to the stunning yummy smelling Niffler candle, this box was perfection. You can truly see the love and attention to detail that went into every single item! Specifically the Directions on the Fantastic tea was made to look like Harry’s potions book that was filled with the scribbles of the Half-blood prince
If you watched my unboxing video you would also have heard the cuteness overload proclaimed every few minutes 🤭 Just look at Dobby(yes, a full size Funko!Pop!!!YAY YAY) AND the little Niffler badge or Newt magnetic bookmark!!! I loved the beautiful designs of the postcard, product card(that came in a Hogwarts wax sealed envelope) and bookmarks!!
Hayley...you blow my mind 🤯 Thank you for putting together such a wonderful box with so many fantastic goodies
You can use my code BEAUTIES5% to save on your next purchase from @all_things_book_ish_box ! Go check out her Website(link in my bio!) You will not be disappointed!!!
This will probably be the last you’ll see of me this weekend, we are heading into ‘no reception zone’ hahaha!! Have a lovely weekend bookies!!
On our way to the airport🤪Yippee!! It’s just a 2 hour flight so the kiddies should be okay
Here is my unboxing of the Cyberpunk November @thebcase Box
It included lots of awesome goodies and TWO books One of which you can see is the beautiful Hardcover of #warcross by #marielu It is STUNNING and it’s on my #tbr list for this month...I can’t wait!!! Watch out for more photos of this gorgeous book!
Swipe left for more photos and a close-up of the earrings
Thank you @thebcase , you rock!
(Maze runner string bag by @papercute_ and Divergent earrings by @beeautifullyyours )

Last day of my challenges
#boekiemonstersnovemberchallenge : (day29) fave November read
Honestly I can’t decide, I really really enjoyed all the books I read this month and that’s a great thing, right??
#booksandprops : scarf

I’m in love with my little DC #wonderwoman #funkopop
#harrypotter #halfbloodprince #jkrowling #geekerella #ashleyposton #wonderwomanwarbringer #leighbardugo
Question: Which one would be your fave of these four?
Ah man I really struggled to get a good shot today...the light wasn’t to great in our room, but also the kiddies really wanted to be on the bed with me The first picture I tried to take while holding a cup of coffee...it didn’t end well The baby kickd the books over slamming it into my coffee which spilled on my book and bed Quick wet wipe and luckily no damage 🤪In the end I think it came out okay
#ampersandnov17 : purple
#booksandprops : bed (thus the whole bed debacle...lol)
#bookishcandle by @all_things_book_ish_box
This Mad Hatter candle is A-AH-ZING!!!! Like REALLY really!!! To me it smells like a spicy cinnamon fireball and hint of bubblegum...that’s just me though...I love this scent! It is a beautiful purple (with silver glitter on top and the label is gorgeous

(Can you see it? )
This book is the follow up of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series by #stieglarsson (hence the dragon and the keyboard is totally relevant...yay me) I loved #themilleniumseries ...I’m hoping this follow up by #davidlagergrantz will be just as awesome!
QOTD: Have you read #girlwiththedragontattoo ? What did you think?
Have you read the new books?
Our internet is such a frustration at the moment...when I’m on the wifi at home I struggle my ass off to get a decent enough connection to actually be able to enjoy instagram and now my mobile data has run out
Anyway, I’m just hoping I’ll be able to do this post and then I’ll read...don’t need no internet for that...take THAT SHITTY internet connection🤭
Challenges for today,
#booksandprops : shoes
#ampersandnov17 : panic
#boekiemonstersnovemberchallenge : Favourite book
I LOVE the ToG series and I love my fierce, panic inducing Aelin “Fire-breathing bitch-Queen” Fireheart Galathynius
QUESTION: Should I paint my funko a bit to make her more like Aelin? Maybe black clothes? I was also thinking if I give her a red cape she can double as Manon?
