This week has been a quiet week, bookwise and life wise. I have one more week to go in work before I have a week off. I am excited for my week off as it will be my birthday at the end of the month and I have some plans that week with family and friends. I also have been making a list of books am going to treat myself too.

Things I have been loving this week:

First up I loved the first episode of Arrow but the ending, I am so confused like who is going to die in the future, please not Felicity, or Diggle or speedy, oh God I don't know if I can take this, there's a whole season to go!

I love watching book tubers and one I love is Christine @ Poland Banana Books and she had the amazing opportunity to interview the cast of the Shadowhunters TV @ New York Comic Con. I love her video, check it out:

Another book tuber Jesse The Reader had a video on book inspired candles. Yes guys books inspired candles. I need these in my life. There are so many from fairy dust to Hargrids Pumpkin Patch to Peetas Cakes and I want them all. If you want to check them out head over to From The Page's Esty Store here

I love music and I have a playlist on YouTube divided into years like 2014, 2015 and I add songs to the lists throughout each year that I am loving. It reminds me when I look back on the song's I was loving at the time in my life's. Two new songs added to the list are:

Ghost Town- Spark- This song just sounds like a perfect Halloween song

Hometown - Where I belong- This is such a good song and I love the guy who starts singing first his voice just gives me chills.

Now for the books:

Remembrance and Can't Buy me love where kindle freebies.

Underwater is a April 2016 release in the UK that I got on netgalley this is one am really looking forward to reading. Note: It releases in the U.S. in January. My Harry Potter Illustrated edition finally arrived and it is beautiful. If you love Harry Potter it's an excellent edition to your shelf.

Sprinkle of glitter's 2016 Diary looks so cute and had some cute ideas inside to do throughout the year and is also a typical day to day diary.

So that's me this week, how was your week? Did you get any exciting books. Let me know in the comments below.


  1. The HP illustrated version looks fab, I'm going to have to check that out next time I'm in a book shop. And yay for treating yourself to a lot MORE books as a birthday treat, LOL
    The diary looks fun too.
    Have a great week :)

  2. A quiet week is good from time to time, and it's probably going to change with your birthday coming near. I hear you on the "more books" presents, I totally can relate ! Enjoy your week-end ;)

  3. I hope you have a great birthday. And there can never be enough books. People I know say that too, "you get lots of books." Yup, can't help it. LOL.

    I finished Arrow S3, haven't seen S4.

    Underwater looks good. I clicked the link and got the US cover, which is also kinda cool. Have a great week!

  4. Not seen Arrow, is it worth a watch?

    You certainly can never have too many book, it is my birthday next month and books are high on my list!!

    Have a good week!!

  5. Sounds like a good week for you....and I also have a birthday this month. Enjoy all the new books!

    I am glad you got your illustrated Harry Potter...while I'm not a Potter fan, I have seen some of the movies, so I can imagine the gorgeous pictures.

    Thanks for sharing...and enjoy your week. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  6. Happy birthday! I definitely think treating yourself to MORE books is a perfect birthday treat. I don't think I've ever really listened to a booktube but I've just started really listening to podcasts so I might as well keep expanding my interests. Have a great week!

  7. Happy Birthday Megan. I ordered the HP Illustrated book for my birthday too...and it should arrive this week..I hope you love it!

  8. Ooooh, I'm so jealous!! I want the Harry Potter illustrated edition so bad! It's sold out on Amazon right now and I refuse to pay the $40 sticker price at the bookstore! I'm glad you got it!! :D

    Here's my Weekly Recap!

  9. OMG, that ending to Arrow just about killed me! GAH.

    I've seen some pics of the HP illustrated book and it's gorgeous, enjoy!

    Happy birthday and enjoy your time off!!!

  10. I've stopped watching Arrow, but you have me intrigued as to who might die....!

    Underwater sounds like a good book, I'll add that to my wishlist :)

  14. I got the illustrated Harry Potter as well. It is so freakin' pretty. Have a good week!

  15. I can never resist getting myself all the books - which is why I've told my family and close friends that GC from bookstores or amazon is the way to go ;) I hope you'll have a fantastic birthday, even if you still have a week to get to it.
    I'm very curious about the Shadowhunters TV show... The cast looks good, so that's a positive!
    I hope you'll enjoy your new books, and that you're having a fantastic week, Megan.
