Top 5 Wednesday: Things on your bookshelf that aren't books

It’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is things on your bookshelf that aren’t books. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the Goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey. So let’s get started…

Number 5: An owl and a TID necklace

All of the items on my bookshelf, I feel make my bookshelf look nicer, hence the owl. I received it from Christmas and I feel like it makes my bookshelf a little bit more like me (as i have a weird owl obsession). Also being a fan of Cassandra Clare’s books I thought that it would be nice to put my Clockwork Angel necklace before I wear it. 

Number 4: Mockingjay Pins

Although the MockingJay pins are on my TBR (To Be Read) Shelf not with my the Hunger Games books, I like the addition they add to my shelf as they show that I am a fan of the Hunger Games and make my shelf just that little bit more interesting. 

Number 3: An audiobook

Most of the time, I am a physical book reader but I don’t mind reading eBooks. I mainly have the audiobook there to force myself to listen to it. I have had it for over a year but I have not listened to it yet. 

Number 2: A butter beer cup with bookmarks

After going to the Harry Potter studio tour, I was left with a butterbeer cup and I had nowhere to put my bookmarks so I put the two together and I think that it makes a nice addition on my bookshelf. 

Number 1: A coaster

I have a coffee addiction that my bookshelf even can’t avoid. The coaster prevents any damage to my bookshelf as I like to drink coffee and read books. It also looks nice on my bookshelf.

Honourable Mentions:

-      More Books- It’s fair to say that I have a book buying addiction and I need to stop buying books as I now have too many that they are now on the top of my bookshelf.
-      A Hufflepuff badge- I class myself as a Hufflepuff and it is fair to say I am proud about it so it has it on my bookshelf. I got it with the butterbeer cup at the Harry Potter studio tour.
-      A “the book was better” badge- As the saying goes the book is better than the movie apart from some exceptions hence why it is on my bookshelf.

What is on your bookshelf that are not books? Let me know in the comments below.

See you soon,

My Reading Tastes Are Changing

For the last couple of years, I feel like this has become a reoccurring blog post but I want to talk about it now because I think something is actually happening in my reading life. My reading tastes are changing. I've felt it for a while. I haven't really been drawn to YA titles that much anymore especially contemporary. Being busy in my time, I have been really selective in the books that I pick up so for me: the shorter, the better. And when picking up shorter books, the less likely they are to be YA. The more I am exposed to more books, the more I get to read books that I connect to Some of the books that I have picked up have really surprised me because of how much I ended up enjoying them. I think as I grow older, I am looking for different stories, different experiences and different perspectives. These don't just fit the YA mould. I also have been really into different genres like horror and the occasional thriller which have not read from before and I'm interes

Book Review: The Great Godden by Meg Rossoff

   * I am reviewing this book which I was gifted for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. * Title: The Great Godden  Author: Meg Rossoff Publisher: Bloomsbury  Source: NetGalley ( Bookshop UK |  Hive |  Goodreads  |  Storygraph ) Book Summary: Everyone talks about falling in love like it’s the most miraculous, life-changing thing in the world. Something happens, they say, and you know … That’s what happened when I met Kit Godden. I looked into his eyes and I knew. Only everyone else knew too. Everyone else felt exactly the same way. This is the story of one family, one dreamy summer – the summer when everything changes. In a holiday house by the sea, our watchful narrator sees everything, including many things they shouldn’t, as their brother and sisters, parents and older cousins fill hot days with wine and games and planning a wedding. Enter two brothers – irresistible, charming, languidly sexy Kit and surly, silent Hugo. Suddenly there’s

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
