My weird (yet wonderful) bookish habit.

Recently I have been reflecting upon the weird things I do when I am reading or in my everyday life regarding reading and I thought I would share them with you. Maybe you can comfort me and let me know that I am not the only one who does them.

So, without further ado here are my weird book//reading habits.

  1. My favourite place to read is sat on a cushion, on the floor with my back pressed against a scorching hot radiator. Obviously I can and do read in other locations but this is where I feel the most relaxed.  I love having a cup of tea within reaching distance when I read, any kind – peppermint, green tea, normal tea. Where do you like reading the most?

  1. Whenever I am out and about and I can see someone reading a book that I love, this weird thing happens to me. I stop what I am doing and just stare at the person for a while; I try my hardest to look normal on the outside but on the inside I am screaming up and down with eagerness. I want to be their friend, I want to go 3up to the person and chat to them about the book and gain their opinion.   I know this is super weird but I would love it if someone did it to me, it would be slightly bizarre at first but then I would be like ‘yaaaaasss gurl, I love this book. ITS AMAZING!!’ Please tell me that at least one of you do this and that I haven’t gone completely crazy.

  1. I absolutely despise it when people bend the top of a page when reading as an indicator for where they got to. I will use ANYTHING and EVERYTHING before resorting to mistreating my book. The other day for instance, I didn’t have any paper in my bag so I quickly used my paracetamol packet instead to keep my page. Bookmarks can be so quirky, colourful and amazing…use them people…use them.

  1. Once facebook told me on a quiz, that I would meet my true love at a bookstore while reaching for the same book. Obviously facebook is 100% an accurate and reliable source, so I am waiting for the day to happen. Imagine it now…it has been a stressful day and I long for the comfort of a bookstore, I am in desperate need for the latest release and just when I am on the verge of giving up. I spot the last copy out of the corner of my eye, I run to the book in a socially accepting manner and just as my hand are about to clasp the book, a strong muscular arm collides with mine. *romantic instrumental music begins* as our touch creates sparks and we stare longingly into each other’s eyes.

So, number on my list is how I always think how romantic it would be to meet      someone as a bookstore. OR, I imagine myself into books where I date the main character.

  1. Forgetting I have hands when reading and stifling a yawn with a book. I read about someone else doing this the other day and I realized that I also do it. I am so intensely captivated by the book that instead of putting to book down like a normal human to cover my mouth while yawning, I just bring my book to my mouth and yawn.

Happy 20th anniversary to Harry Potter and the Philosopher Stone! 

As you already know from my previous post that I have all 8 version of the 20th anniversary books. 

I know I know…I shouldn’t have but I couldn’t resist.

Do to the fact I am in Ravenclaw, my focus will be with them today. 

  

I actually cannot express in words how much Harry Potter means to me, considering we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the first book, you would think that fans passion would falter or didappear completely but seriously mine just grows yearly. 

Below are a few pictures of my trip to the Harry Potter Studios in 2014. Wow how has it been three years since.  

  • Where are my fellow Ravenclaw at? 
  • If not, what else house are you in and why? 

Pinterest wish list…

So, being a student means one thing – I always seem to be poor. In order to get rid of my aching desire to shop away my student loan, I just make boards on Pinterest and dream about all the stuff I want.

Sunglasses-

Makeup

I keep meaning to pick up the NYX Copenhagen soft matte lip cream and the lip liner. I absolutely love this colour.

I need this NOW! It is soo pretty, the colours are majestic and make me want to get creative with my eye makeup. I love it when brands like Urban Decay and Mac bring out themed makeup that coincides with an upcoming movie.

Which leads me to my next wish list item-

According to the Harry Potter sorting hat on the website, I am in Ravenclaw. When I little, I always dreamed of being in Gryffindor but I am to be in Ravenclaw because it links me to traits such as; intelligence, wit, wisdom, creativity, originality, individuality and acceptance. Oh yeah, that’s me alright.

I AM A PROUD RAVENCLAW MEMBER.
