Anyway lemme share with you today’s weird post FIRST ACCOUNT Hogwarts House: Gryffindor Wand: Spruce wood with a Unicorn hair core 10 ¾” and Brittle flexibility Patronus: Kingfisher Ilvermorny House: Thunderbird Inside, I’m a Gryffindor. I love the house. Proabably because it’s the house we’re most familiar with. I like being in this house. When I was actually being sorted, I thought long and hard about my answers. I’m cool with the wand. I also think my patronus is a pretty elegant animal so I like that too. Don’t know…

    MY FAVOURITE BOOKS FROM MY FAVOURITE SERIES

    My first ever post was my all-time favorite series (click here to view). We all love one book more than another from our favourite series, so I want to share mine with you. Harry Potter (by J.K. Rowling) is awesome. I don’t where you have been if you’ve never heard of it. But I think my favourite of those books has to be Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows. It’s such a good book and I love it so much. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare is that series that I was obsessed with and couldn’t put down. There are two books that I can’t really decide between: City of Lost…

    Review: FANGIRL

    Title: Fangirl Author: Rainbow Rowell Page count: 459 Date published: 30 January 2014 Genre: Romance & contemporary Rating: 4 1/2 out of 5 stars Synopsis: Cath and Wren are identical twins, and until recently they did absolutely everything together.

    TV SHOW TALK ROUND 2

    It’s been a while since my last TV SHOW TALK. Click here to see my first one. I basically tell you about all the tv shows I’ve watched recently so we can talk about them together. I’ve been watching the final season of Teen Wolf. It’s pretty good but I’m still confused at this point. I am enjoying it. I kind of have mixed feelings. Stiles isn’t in it but I think it’s okay. I am coping. I’m very nervous about the finale. It better be good. I just binged Anne With An E on Netflix like yesterday. I love this show. It’s literally 7 episodes in the first season.…
