thebooker said: I’m Ravenclaw too. Both of us can be best friends with Luna. :D
That sounds awesome! And we can read together in the common room :D if only.. ;)
According to the Sorting Hat, I’m Ravenclaw.
End of a day’s work but can’t go by without thanking readers at home who voted #TheBookThief no.1 in the @Dymocks favourite #101club poll. So proud it’s an Aussie book, and so grateful to all of you & to one GREAT bookshop.
Bridge of Clay! I can’t breathe.. It’s my most anticipated book!
Book Cake Tag!
The Book Cake Tag is all over Booktube so Sylvia from ifyougaveagirlabook thought it’d be a fun tag to transfer over to Tumblr.
This tag was created by suddenlylorna
I was tagged by the amazing Sylvia!
The first ingredient in making a cake is FLOUR:
This is the book that was slow to start, but really began to pick up as you went along.
- Tough question.. Atonement by Ian McEwan, which turned out to be a very beautiful book. You have to be patient though, there are many descriptions at the beginning.
Next, we add MARGARINE:
This is the book that had a really rich plot.
- Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. Very rich indeed. 1232 pages of richness.
Then, we crack open some EGGS:
This is the book you thought was going to be bad, but turned out to be quite enjoyable.
- I feared that Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh was going to be bad and I hoped against hope that it wouldn’t.. and it turned out to be my favourite classic. Also, Allegiant by Veronica Roth.
The next step is to add SUGAR:
What is the sweetest book you’ve read?
- The most swoon-worthy book I’ve read is Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell.
After we’ve retrieved the cake from the oven, ICING covers the surface:
This is the book that covered every single moment you enjoy in a book i.e happy, funny, sad moments. An all-around book
For decoration, we add a dash of SPRINKLES:
A book series for a pick-me-up
- The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare! So engaging and heartbreaking.
Last but not least, we’ve got the CHERRY ON TOP:
- What has been your favorite book so far this year?It’s a tie between Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. I haven’t read a ton of books this year but the ones I have are different and I don’t think I can really choose just one because they’re really good in their own way.
and now for some random followers.. just a little thank you ;)
Q:What are your thoughts on Fanfiction? Would you ever read a fanfiction story?
To tell you the truth I don’t really read fanfiction because I like to stick to the original story and I’ve never felt an inclination to read or write it, for no particular reason.
But I think that fanfiction is a good way to start training yourself to write and it may very well lead to writing your very own book!
Q:Your pictures of the books are just amazing! How do you take them, and what do you use?
Hi there! Thank you so much for appreciating my photography, it means a lot to me :).
I use a Canon EOS Rebel T3i and I have two lenses: an 18-55mm lens (for close-ups) and a 55-250mm lens (for the bokeh effect). If you pinpoint your favourite photo, maybe I can identify which lens I used. Needless to say, I love the quality of my camera and it’s very easy to use. Then I always use Adobe Photoshop CS5 to make the colours of my photos more vibrant. I don’t use any lighting equipment; I normally take photos in the afternoon when the natural lighting is at its best.
I hope I’ve helped you! If you have any more questions, please ask me.

Welcome to my book blog. My name is Sophie and I live in England. I started this blog as a suggestion by the wonderful Jasmine, aka thefictionologist, and well here I am.
Currently I’m in my final year of A Levels, but I am going on to study Creative Writing at university - so not only does maintaining this blog give me practice in writing reviews etc, it also allows me to read into a wide variety of genres to give myself more scope.
I am wholly in love with the fantasy, magic realism, faerie tales, classics and Gothic genres, although I will read pretty much any genre you throw at me. If there’s a book you want me to read and review, I’ll do it for you. I’m always open to reading different books, so you can head over to my ask box.

Everyone please follow Sophie’s new book blog readathousandlives! I can assure you that apart from being one of the loveliest persons on Earth, she has good taste in books :)
