Visit to the Warner Bros Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter

Yesterday I had one of the BEST DAYS of my life, you may not know but I am a fan of Harry Potter, have been for many years and I love the fandom of it, I love the books, the  movies, the merch, the whole thing! It is a wonderful series of brilliantly written tales. 

I have so much to say about Harry Potter I could hardly know where to begin but I thought I would tell you a little over various blog posts of an amazing day out I had yesterday!

Yesterday ‘Man of Mine’ drove us to the ‘Warner Bros Studio Tour, the making of Harry Potter’

How do YOU decide… what to read next? Bookworm Problems #3

It’s a good problem to have… the problem of what to read next, so many books out there, and with the arrival of kindle years ago it seems you can buy books for a lot less than a magazine pretty often.

I have read nearly all of the books on my bookcases, some have come and gone that i never read but that is pretty rare for me if I have wanted them and chosen them, I am usually enthusiastic about books so much so that I want to read them soon as I get them.

Do you judge a book by it’s cover? Bookworm Problems #2

On the next in the whimsy Cosy bookworm series, today it is about judging a book by its cover… we are not supposed to… but how many of us do it anyway.

I am a big reader, I go through little phases of how much I read but I am a big reader, books are wonderful!

However, books have covers and we are certainly not supposed to judge by it, the cover does not indicate how well the book will be written or how exciting it will be, it does not tell us how page turning it will feel, and it does not let us know if it has the magic of good storytelling, or all the facts we ‘need’ on a topic.  It does not tell us if the book is factually correct … or if it will REALLY make us laugh.

A Court of Thorns and Roses

Wow, this series got of to a dramatic start, after hearing it could be a slow start I was surprised how captured I was by ‘ A court of Thorns and Roses’- a book I had no idea  it was a beauty and the beast inspired retelling but read it thinking… ‘this is really like beauty and the beast’.. HA, so Sarah J Mass did a great job then.

YA fiction has some of the most dramatic reads

I can really go through reading phases with genres, and moods for books can really change at times.

I found myself in a bit of a reading slump that even one of my Cookbook Nook reads waiting on my shelf couldn’t solve (great reads usually to me in the cozy mystery department)

I needed a book that would grip me, one of those ones you just can’t put down easily.  One where you just need to know what happens as soon as you can.
