Like almost every book blogger out there, I love Harry Potter and have the books to prove it. Here I have a quick little tour of all the books in my collection. I know a lot of people have much more impressive collections (The Potter Collector for example) but I’m proud of it all the same.
I have the Bloomsbury editions of the series from way back when.
The Philosopher’s Stone
The Chamber of Secrets
The Prisoner of Azkaban
The Goblet of Fire
The Order of the Phoenix
The Half-Blood Prince
The Deathly Hallows
The Cursed Child
The Creature Vault
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Illustrated
The Philosopher’s Stone Illustrated
The Chamber of Secrets Illustrated
The Prisoner of Azkaban Illustrated
The Philosopher’s Stone House Editions
I also collect editions of Dracula. Do you collect any books?
My bookcase was a complete mess, I had stuff just shoved in there everywhere. So I decided to sort that shitout! The very top shelf remains the same, it has our wedding albums and stuff from the ceremony on it.
The next shelf had my read books on it but now has graphic novels, all of my Harry Potter books and some pop funkos. Next was my to read but is now my read books with some favourites facing forward and my piggy bank. I made a plan this year to add €1 to the piggy bank for every book I finish. I think I’ll up it to €2 now to save a bit more. The last shelf now has my to read books with the ones I plan on reading soon facing forward.
I am limited with space which is why I have two layers of books. I honestly don’t know how some people have these massive bookcases full of books. I would love to have that too but I just don’t have the space!
I recently watched a Get Ready With Me video from Cheap Lazy Vegan where she overlayed a speech instead of music or a voiceover. I really enjoyed it and wanted to try it out myself.
The makeup I’m doing is just my everyday makeup (though I don’t actually wear makeup every day). Since I have a book blog I decided to do mine with poetry using audiobook recordings from Librivox which are in the public domain.
Here’s the video, I hope you enjoy it 🙂
The poem is Goblin Market by Christina Rossetti, one of my absolute favourite poems and I think you would enjoy it even if you don’t like (or think you don’t like) poetry. I wrote a post about it for Poetry Day in 2017 as well. If you enjoyed the poem I recommend reading Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones. You can check out more of Christina Rossetti’s work on Librivox or from a collection, Selected Poems by Christina Rossetti.
I really had so much fun creating this post and would love to do more. I will probably use shorter poems in the future though…
