September Book Photo Challenge I Day 4. I Paperback or Hardback

Hardback. Utterly impractical, but undeniably magical.

Because there were some comments about it… Some close-ups of the details. I love painting details. And Rainbow’s books are full of excellent ones. (In my headcanon Levi turned the busts like that. He ships it.)

And thanks for all the nice comments, friends, You all are lovely :)

"Not every child takes instantly to books like a duck to water, but I don’t believe there are children who hate books. There are just children who haven’t yet found the right books for them."

- Amanda Craig, If your child won’t read, find another book, The Telegraph (via prettybooks)

The best feeling in the world is when after a long day, you climb into your nest of blankets and curl up with a good book, while listening to the pouring rain outside; and you read and read until you’re so exhausted you fall asleep with the book lying on your chest or folded in your arms.


The hardest part of being in a bookstore is having to decide which books to spend your hard-earned money on.

I feel this is important 



If you love to read and you want to blog about it, DO IT. Don’t worry about how many people are following you, or how many books you’re reading, if you post a review for a book or not, if you buy books this month or not. We’re supposed to do this for fun and to relax. We’re supposed to do it for ourselves.

"Do they sense it, these dead writers, when their books are read? Does a pinprick of light appear in their darkness? Is their soul stirred by the feather touch of another mind reading theirs? I do hope so."

Summer Giveaway and Treasure Hunt

Ok so I know the end of summer is a bit late to host a summer giveaway but I’ve just passed a mile stone and this giveaway took a lot of planning. These are the books I’ve read this summer which I feel would make the best gift for you guys also as essentially I will be gifting two of you to receive a copy of your choice.

This giveaway is going to run in two formats, the first being the traditional “reblog to enter” situation and the second being a new treasure hunt I am testing out. Each method will have one winner and it is possible to win both. 


For the traditional method you simply have to reblog this post and follow me and I will randomly draw one winner at midnight BST on the 25th September one month from now. This winner will be allowed to choose one book pictured above or listed below to have brought and sent to them by me. (Probably via the book depository as it ships free worldwide)

The second format is going to be won by the first person to riddle out 5 clues and inbox me with the final answer. To make it fair to all I won’t be posting the final clue until the final night of the competition September 25th at 6pm. The way it works is that I will link to a particular post I have made in the past with a specific word or name to look for. Once you find that word it will double as a password to access the next clue.  Once you reach the 4th answer you will be able to access the site where I will post my final clue but the clue will not go live until 6pm on the 25th of September and you will have the option of signing up to be contacted with the clue an hour before it goes live. 

The first clue for this challenge is "In my review of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone I say a certain set of books will not be left on book shelves, which book series am I referring to?” Once you know the answer go to this site and enter the name to see the next clue. (As this will be a proper noun answer spaces and capitals are relevant) 

I recommend the books on offer for everyone, not just the winners and they are; 

1. The Program, Suzanne Young

2. Cinder, Marrisa Meyer

3. The Northern Lights, Philip Pullman

4. A Monster Calls, Patrick Ness

5. More Than This, Patrick Ness

6. Pawn, Aimee Carter 

7. Anna and the French Kiss, Stephanie Perkins

8. Shadow and Bone, Leigh Bardugo


* The winners will be able to choose one book each from those listed above which I will then send them. 
* As this competition is a thank you for my followers I will only choose you as a winner if you are following me; to go to my blog click here
* You can enter as many times as you like; there is no limit per day or in total but try not to annoy people by constantly reblogging. 
* The winners will have 48 hours to respond before I choose another, they must also have an open ask box as that is how I will contact them. 
* It is not necessary for the competition but I would be grateful anyone who wants to friend me on goodreads, link here. Or follow my second blog Flipping Fantastic Films.
* If you have any queries leave a message in my ask box and I will respond and update this post with the answers.

*My final clue will only go live at 6pm 15th September, you have until then to solve the previous 4 and be the first to message me the answer and win. 

Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favour!

Guys, my ‘Crewel’ book has the ugliest uglies cover ever, and so I’m making a dust jacket for it.

If anybody has this book in that pink-violet edition, I would greatly appreciate a picture of the back of it, and the spine, so I can print it out and make it a dust jacket.

I found the front on google but nothing else :(
