Hello there, as always I am playing catch up with myself.. my head is so full of ideas of things I want to write and do but it’s like they all try to escape at the same time and all they manage to do is get stuck along the way and dam up my stream of thought. Things have been pretty busy too with work and family life and I haven’t been well on and off.. good thing this is a hobby for me and not a career or I would be ever so slightly screwed. Anyway on to the books, my reading has slowed down a good bit which is ok because I’m not far off completing my goal for the year so I can relax a bit.

Released back in 2006 The Kill (Bury Me) by Thirty Seconds to Mars is still as relevant today as it was then, it’s one of those songs that just sticks with you and as soon as you hear those first words it pulls at your insides.. Continue reading “Throwback Thursday – Thirty Seconds to Mars The Kill”
Hello and welcome to my first Watch it Wednesday! I asked on Twitter recently if I should add an entertainment section to the blog and got a very positive reaction so here we go! I have been locked in a total binge watching session with Doctor Who for the last few weeks so haven’t really watched much else but I’ve gone through the planner for the next week and highlighted some top picks.

After spending the last number of weeks rereading the Harry Potter Series I finished them today and started The Cursed Child. I did my best to take my time but I had it read in 3 hours. Just as I couldn’t put my copy of The Philosopher’s Stone down 19 years ago I couldn’t move until I read it all. Continue reading “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”

Is it obvious that I’m a Harry Potter fan? I was disappointed in myself a bit that I didn’t manage to get all of the books read, I got through the first three quick enough and it went a bit downhill from there. Goblet of Fire is a big book and the week I started reading it I was very busy so only got to read a chapter here and there but sure I managed a fair bit and I will continue on with the series. Continue reading “July Round Up 2016”
We are just a couple of days away from the release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and I have fallen behind a bit with my reread. As usual I powered through the first 3 books only to slow way down once I hit the fourth. A combination of long work days leaving me tired and the fact that the fourth book is far longer than the first 3 has meant that I only just finished The Goblet of Fire now. I know I won’t be finished the series before the release of The Cursed Child but that’s ok I’m still enjoying it, nothing makes me happier then going back to Hogwarts.
