My Patronus!

If you haven’t heard, Pottermore has a new quiz where you can find out your patronus, so of course I had to take the quiz and find out my patronus, but I also had to write a post to share with you all what I got.

I’d like to start off by stating how much I adore this site. It’s so above and beyond and magical. They put so much effort in the site I just really appreciate it.

SO I took the quiz obviously and it was short and sweet, the whole time I was just thinking about how I wanted my patronus to be a cat and…


I feel like it’s real magic, this is perfect for me I can’t even ahahaha.

What about you guys? Have you found out what your patronus is? Let me know in the comments, and if you don’t know yours yet, you have to go take the quiz!!

A Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda Movie?

If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that my all time favourite YA contemporary is Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. I read it over a year ago now and I’ve reread it twice this year (and probably will once more before the year is up) but I just absolutely adore it.

Everyone and their mother has heard about Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda and there is a lot of hype surrounding it however and I think that’s the reason why the people who have yet to read it, haven’t read it yet.

I personally just love the humour in Simon Vs so much, that’s what really differs it from other contemporaries for me and it also has amazing charaters, cute romance, Harry Potter and important topics discussed throughout the novel.

As you can probably tell, this book is very close to my heart and I want it all to myself (even though it’s very popular haha) but also one that I recommend everyone to read.

It is apparently is in the process of becoming a movie.

Not much has been said except that Fox 2000 is setting it up and Greg Berlanti (director of the DC comic shows) will be the director.

I don’t know about you but if this all goes through then you all know I’ll be the first person in the theatre on the night of the prescreening. 

I am reluctant to share Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda with a wider audience but I guess it’s necessary to see it come to life as a film.

Now, this might be all the news we get for a while but as things come in (casting and such) I will be sure to keep you all updated with posts about it because I think they’ll be fun to write and for you to read and we can all fangirl and fanboy together.

Have you read Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda? Is it being turned into a movie a “yay!” or “boo!” for you and why? Let me know in the comments!

New Short Stories From J.K. Rowling

New Short Stories From J.K. Rowling

Hey everyone! I’m coming to you with a post about the three new short stories set in the Harry Potter world that were just released today on any ebook format!

I’ve been saving my money on iTunes for a while now waiting to buy these and finally they are here. They claim to “dig deep into the Harry Potter stories, with titbits taken from Pottermore’s archives and original writing from J.K. Rowling. The series offers Harry Potter fans added insights into the stories, settings and characters and were all lovingly curated by Pottermore.” And I cannot wait to read them.

Here are the synopsis for all three from Pottermore:

Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide dives into the nooks and crannies of the beloved wizarding school itself, unfurling everything from details about the Hogwarts ghosts, to what happens when the Sorting Hat can’t decide on a student’s house.

Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists explores the darker roots of the wizarding world. You’ll learn more about the troubles that faced the Ministry of Magic, the horrors of Azkaban prison and enjoy an entirely new original piece of writing by J.K. Rowling on Horace Slughorn.
Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies, Pottermore celebrates the colourful staff of Hogwarts. There’s more to discover about Care of Magical Creatures teacher Silvanus Kettleburn, as well as another new piece of writing from J.K. Rowling on Minerva McGonagall, and her involvement in the second wizarding war.
It’s actually my first day of school today but I don’t have to go until 1:00 and I am finished at 2:30 so I know the rest of my day will be filled with reading these short stories, I can’t wait!

What about you guys? Did you know about these and are you planning on reading them? Let me know in the comments!

August 2016 Wrap Up!

August 2016 Wrap Up!

Hey everyone! I hope your week is going well. As you can tell by the title this is my August Wrap Up and I super late to posting this because I wrote this whole post and then somehow it didn’t save (which I’m really mad about) so then I didn’t feel like rewriting it then and there, then I had some other posts going up and now here we are 1/3 through September and I’m finally posting my August Wrap Up.

August wasn’t as busy as July for me, although I was at my cousins house for almost a week and I was on vacation for almost two weeks, I still managed to read 6 books (four on vacation which I was pleased with) which is more than I read in July and I didn’t hate any of them which is always good! A few of the books I read were almost 5/5 star books, but only one of them wowed me enough to earn 5/5 stars. Enough with the rambling, let me give you my thoughts on the books I read this month!

Queen Of Hearts by Colleen Oaks

I actually read this in less than a day at the beach which was fun! It’s a Alice In Wonderland retelling which intrigued me a lot and I think the whole retelling part of the story was well thought out but where I think this book lost me was the plot and some events that happened. The characters weren’t very memorable but I did enjoy how her brother was the ‘Mad Hatter’ charater of the story but no one else really stuck with me. The plot was very anticlimactic towards the end and they just kind of ended it. Also some events that took place (that whole escaping through the closet thing or whatever, if you’ve read the book you’ll know what I’m talking about) just seemed sort of unnecessary and ridiculous in my opinion and they could have been written differently to be less ridiculous. Overall I gave it 3/5 stars, I enjoyed it while it lasted for the most part but it’s not something I’d think “oh yeah I’d love to reread this!” about.
The Kiss Of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

I was really in the mood for fantasy at the beginning of the month, so I jumped right into the first book in the Remnant Chronichles after purchasing the third book in the series which recently came out. The Kiss Of Deception was so good, the multiple perspectives (which is an element I always love) were all so interesting, especially since we didn’t know who the assassin or the prince was, we were just reading from their perspective. I also adored Lia as a main character. Overall I gave it 4.5/5 stars and I’m so excited to continue on with the series, especially since I’ve heard the second book is even better than the first!

Highly Illogical Behavior by John Corey Whaley

This book I picked up on the plane ride to B.C. because I knew it would be a short, enjoyable contemporary to pass the time on the 5 hour flight and that is exactly what it was. The topic was interesting, the main character not having left his hours for something like two years and the characters were interesting enough although Lisa annoyed me a bit. The plot kept me engaged although the end was a bit of a shuffle I enjoyed it and gave it 4/5 stars.

Wink Poppy Midnight by April Genevieve Tucholke

Wink Poppy Midnight was definitely one of the most interesting books I have never read and I loved it a lot. From the characters, to the setting, to the plot, the whole thing was incredibly gripping, I couldn’t put it down. For such a short book I still felt deeply connected to every character, and I think the multiple perspectives helped a lot with that. The plot was very twisted and creepy, especially towards the middle but I was so intrigued, I loved it therefore giving it 5/5 stars.. I definitely have to say that Wink Poppy Midnight isn’t for everyone but if you were a fan of We Were Liars, The Accident Season or any books similar to those I would highly encourage you to give this one a try.

Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson

I was so excited to read this because everyone loves Morgan Matson and Since You’ve Been Gone was the first book of her that I’ve read. I definitely can see why people love her books so much, it’s exactly what it looks and sounds like, an adorable contemporary. The characters were relatable and fun to read about, and the plot was fast paced and interesting. If you are needing a cute pick-me-up sort of book I would definitely recommend this one, 4.5/5 stars.

Amy & Rogers Epic Detour by Morgan Matson

After I read Since You’ve Been Gone and really loved it I knew I needed to read more of Mogan Matson’s books because they are just so cute and summery. We went to a huge Indigo in B.C. so I picked up A&R’s Epic Detour and Second Chance Summer. I read Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour straight through on the plane home and although it was super cute, it didn’t blow me away, I liked Since You’ve Been Gone more and I’m starting to notice that there are not a lot of differences between Mogan Matson’s story lines or characters, but I’m hoping Second Chance Summer will change my mind about that. Overall I gave Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour 4/5 stars!

Overall I have to say that August wasn’t a bad moth (I’ve had better) but I am definitely pleased with everything I read.

What about you guys? How many books did you read in Augustand did you fund any new favourites? Let me know in the comments!
