Cover Clothes #3: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by alexandramathews featuring a quilted jacket


Hello, everyone! I'm back, and I got a Cover Clothes post for y'all! Since I've been reading so much Harry Potter fanfiction lately that I thought it would be a good idea to make a post about it. Everything featured is $50 or less, and I tried to stay true to the cover. I had to add the red boots for the fabulous witch in the red robes. The glasses are for Harry. The owl represents Hedwig. The rest of the items I felt when along with the winter-ish theme and color scheme.

Last Minute Christmas Gifts for Your Bookworm: Reading (and More) List!

Image
Hello, everyone! I'm back, and the season of giving is upon us. A few of you may have a bookworm on your list of gift recipients for Christmas, and you don't want to give them the same old Books-a-Million gift card that they seem to get every year. If that's the case, I've got a list of gift ideas that are unique and are sure to make your bookworm's Christmas the merriest it could possibly be. Now, let's get onto the list!

First things first. We have to start a list of possible gifts for book-lovers with a book. My suggestion is Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch. Along with being on my "To Read" list, this book won the New Kid on the Shelf award by Epic Reads. Basically, it was voted to be the best debut novel of the year. Chances are your giftee hasn't got their hands on this book yet, but if they have that one, here's a link to all of the winners this year. You can get this book on Amazon for about $13, and you can find it at this link.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander (aka J. K. Rowling): Book Review!

Image
Hello, everyone! I'm back, and I'm here to review Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander (but really J. K. Rowling).It is (supposedly) a textbook used in Hogwarts as one of their standard texts for teaching Care of Magical Creatures. This book is a copy of Harry Potter's own copy, and it is complete with written notes made by Harry, Ron, and Hermione. It includes a preface by Albus Dumbledore, an introduction into Magizoology, and an A - Z list of magical beasts including detailed description. But enough about that, let's get onto the review! 

I found this book surprisingly entertaining. It's supposed to be a textbook, and so I was expecting it to be a little stale, if I'm being honest. But it wasn't. It was clever and funny, and I thought it was a really fun read. It's a small book, so this review is going to be a little small, but I will get down to the gist of it. If you're a fan of of The Harry Potter Series and you enjoy short…
