In today's post, I just want to fangirl a little bit about the fact that, Harry Potter will be on TV this December. And before you say that this is something normal, I want to say, that this did not happened in Romania in a while (since I was a little I guess).
So Digi Film (for my Romanian friends) just announced that starting with 4th of December, every day from 20:00 (Romanian time, obviously) every single Harry Potter Movie will be on TV. OMGGGGG...I knowww....riggghhhtttt. Aghhhh can't wait.
Another thing I wanted to talk about is "Fantastic Beast and where to find them" came out a few weeks ago, and I'm yet to watch it. I really have to watch it. It's jut my local cinema only gives it on 3D and because some problems I had in the past I am not allowed to watch it. But I think I found it online, therefore, I'll try to watch it soon.
What else would need to be said? I'm currently listening to a CD that I got from Jazz and Blues Festival, where obviously, I volunteered, not even a surprise anymore. It is actually really nice.
And I think that pretty much is. Thank you for Fangirling with me,
I hope you have an absolutely amazing week!!

What's up??? For me, nothing much, I'm just procrastinating because I have way to much to study for history.
As you can see from the title of this post, I volunteered at Ruta Sepetys's signing in Bucharest, Romania.
To go to Bucharest, from where I live, is a 2 h 30 min drive or so. Not big of a deal, it's a small price to pay for an international YA author.
So this is what I did, I woke up at 6:30 in a school day aka Friday got ready and jumped in the car with my parents because I'm 16 and I can't drive.
I got in Bucharest at 10:20 and I had 10 minutes to spend in the beautiful library, my parents left me so I was alone, and I got lost but find my way pretty fast.
Ruta Sepetys had a meeting with some Romanian bloggers, after that a short live interview, some kind of presentation at a class, and finally another 10 min or so interview. This is just at the local library.
Before I'll say anything else I want to take a moment and say how amazing the author and the director of the publisher were, and pretty much every other person I came in contact that day, and really, that was a side of Bucharest that I never seen before.
Ruta actually was kind enough to sign me 2 books, only because first time I put her to sign the book, it wasn't my copy, it was a copy of the book I received for free from the publisher, so a bit later I asked her if she can sign my copy as well, and she did.
After that I got about 4 hours to spend before the actual book signing, and I went to eat something, then to Curturesti (which, gotta say, this store keeps surprising me on how beautiful it is), and after that I drank a tee at Mc Donald's, just because it was right to Humanitas, the book store where the book signing was.
At 18:00 I went in the store and I attended the book talk (kind of a book talk). After the signing I meet this amazing humans, one of them has a blog and the other one has a youtube channel. They are such amazing persoonnnsss!
Before I left I went and talked to Anca (the director of the publisher) to see if there is anything else to do, but there wasn't, and she asked me at which high school I study and things like that. I told her that I'm from Brasov and she was so surprised that I came all this way just for this publisher and she also told Ruta, and she was also impressed, and I just had an amazing day. If you know me, you know that I'm like "shit....someone is talking to me...what do I say now???". But they were so nice and they gave me such a good feeling.
And don't be thinking I'm saying this just because they might be reading this. I don't even think they know that I have a blog. It is just what I felt. :D
Thank you if you read all the way until here. I'll make sure to have a bit more photos than usual.
Hope you have a great start of week.

How are you???? I'm doing great...I just finished this amazing book and I want to talk about it!!!!
But first: This is a Spoiler review....unusual for me but there are way to many things to say about it. If you want a spoiler free review, look up for my book haul, or Wrap up...I'm not sure.
what they say: My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.
what I say: Firstly, I wanna say that I've read this book in three days, which is amazing considering that I was studying for history, and that I haven't finished any books in a MONTH.
Yeahhh....we all been to the situation where school just puts us in a reading slump. Anywayyyy.....I can't find my words right now, this book was so mind blowing. I really did not expected to happen what it happened. Ok so....ughhhh....this book!!!
Let's begin with how stressful the first time when she got out of the house was...I was literally chewing my nails, and I don't do that!!! She got out just because the boy who she loved was being hurt....and that is so brave, and I admire this character so much.
Then she just couldn't stay in the house anymore so she got out again, and she got to the airport and flew herself to Hawaii, with Olly.
I spoiled myself when I bought this book. For some reasons I thought that the black page that was in the book might be pictures from the movie set. and when you see four words you read them. And this is how I got spoiled....and for the most part of the book I thought she was gonna die.
And this is why the 2nd day I wasn't reading that much, because I was afraid. But then I got to that part I was like "there....it happened...now what?" but then you turn the black page and you see there are some more words...and she is alive... And in that moment, I don't know if that happened to you as well, but I felt like, something got out of my shoulders. I was so relieved.
And then you found out that her mom is actually mad....and you start realizing that her whole life was a lie. And you thinking that this book got into dark shit, but you continue reading because it's that great!!
AM I THE ONLY ONE?????
Lastly the ending...everything got back together especially Olly and Maddy! And they lived happily ever after. This ending is so satisfying. This book was definitely the most mind-blowing contemporary book I've read this year so far, ad I'm so recommending it to you!
5 OUT OF 5 STARS!!!!
Hope you have an amazing day!!!

For the past couple of days I've been spanding all my time volunteering at Dracula Film Fesival...yaayy!!!
If you don't know, Dracula Film Festival (DFF) is, obviously, a film festival that take place in Brasov, between 12-16 of October.
Inferno (120 min.)
It opened with the book to movie adaptation of "Inferno" by Dan Brown and I t was amazing. Though I did not read any of Dan Brown's books, I still really really enjoyed this one, it was just so actionpackedplottwistingtrustissuesmindblowing amazing.
Ok...so I know that that is not a real word, but I thought I'll use it :D
I gave this movie 5/5 stars and I'm definetly gonna read the book for this.
The man who was thursday (Ungaria,2016)
This movie was pretty interesting...I can say. Everyone was saying how mind blowing it was and I gotta say that I agree.
It was a unique plot that I haven't seen before. But there were some aspects that I did not really enjoyed.
I gave this 3/5 stars.
What we become(Danemarca,2016)
This was so cliche, that I actually enjoyed it. If you wanna watch that cliche movie about zombies where everyone is dying but the main couple....this is the one.
It was....something...ummm...yeah...not the best movie. I thought the main characters are really dumb.
I think I'll leave you with only this 3 movie reviews ....for now.
I also wanna say that this Festival really got me into the Halloween mood.
I hope you have an amazing day!

For the past couple of days/weeks,I've been struggleing with writeing a blog, not because of school or anything, but because I have way to many ideas of posts, but I don't have the patience to sit down and write. But here I come with a book tag, because I haven't talked about this topic in ages!!
The intimidating TBR tag:
1. A book on your TBR pile you haven't finished:
Pride and prejudice. I know....you probably think I'm a terrible person, but I've tried twice to read and at a certain point it gets slow, and it dirves me mad. And I relly want to like it.....I just can't get through it.
2. A book you just haven't had the time to read:
I'm going to say "The Hobbit" by J.R.R.Tolkien just because it's just a tiny little bit slow and I just need the time, where I sit and read. Maybe an audiobook would also help.
3. A book you haven't read because it's a sequel:
Here we go again, me being a terrible person, and I will say "Clockwork prince" by Cassandra Clare. Again, high fantasy (oh well, more like urban fantasy and steam punk) and I just need the time and read this kind of books. And this is frustrating because I loooooovvvvveeee "Clockwork Angel".
4. A book you haven't read because it's brand new:
Probably "Something in Between" by Melissa de la Cruiz. She is one of my favourites authors, I don't know what it is, I just love her books, and this book came out in America on 4th of October, but I haven't seen it yet in Romania.
5. A book by an author you read previously but you didn't really like:
Anything by Anna Todd, I've only read "After" by her, and It's a bit too much drama for me.
6. A book in your TBR plie that your just not in the mood to read:
For this, I think I'm going to say any Classic. I only read classic in very special ocasiones, and this ocasiones are usually if I'm in the mood for them. But I gotta say that I love "Sherlock Holmes" adn I try to read it as often as I can.
7. A book in your TBR plie that you haven't read because it's enormous:
For this, I'm going to say a series, and that is "Outlander" by Diana Gabaldon.
8. A book on your TBR pile you bought because of the cover:
9.The book on your TBR you find most intimidating:
Anthing that I need to read for school is intimidating for me, especially if it's a long book, because I'm a slow reader and because I know I won't finish the book on time and I will eventually be spoiled.
OK, so this was it, I curently have a cold, and I'll try my best to write many blogs right now.
On October 2nd, I had an year since I first started this blog. And lastly I want to say that I started an instagram accoun for the blog, again, but this time, with Instagram being so nice an alowing me to easily swich accounts, I'll try to post more regularly.
The account is simply called @thestreetoffiction .
Thank you for reading, I hope you have a wonderful day! Bye!

Today I want to talk about another topic that it just randomly (or not) poped into my head.
Recently, I got into a fight with my best friend. And it wasn't even a fight it was a misunderstanding of a snap that I've sent.
Now don't get me wrong. For the longest time, I thought that social media is a great way of keeping up with old friends, and I still think that. (I sound like an old ladie....LOL) But sometimes, the massege that you sent might not sound like you wanted to.
Now it happend to me that a certain person (another really close friend of mine) that I don't get to see really often, but we still talk a lot on social edia, told me one time that "You are not okay. But I'll give you a big hug when I'll se you.". And indeed, it was a time when I did not felt really well. And I'm so grateful, that I have a friend like him, that saw right trough that massege.
However, it also happend to me thatsomeone asked me if I was okay, only bcause I was using too many suspense dots. But this is how I usually talk on social media.
My point is, you either are going to talk to the person face to face, or you are going to think what they might understand from that, and if it rally is important to send that. Cuz' sometimes misunderstanding might cost you a frienship that you can't find anywhere else. Anyway, I think that everything is ok now, but I really don't know for sure.
I hope you have a wonderful week and let me know if you have any other things to add in here.
P.S.: I want to post twice a week, I believe on Tuesday and Friday, hope is good for you too.
sâmbătă, 6 august 2016
Today I want to talk about a subject that came in my mind while I was listening to a sad song. Deeeeeeeepppp! Anyway!!!
As you can see fron the title of this post, it is about anonymity. Why we do it?
First of all, I want to say that for almost half a year this blog was anonymus until one of this post was shared on facebook and I said screw this, my name is Diana Visinescu and if you do know me, it means you are an amazing person and you most probably mean a lot for me.
So why we do this? Because we think we are ugly and we think we are going to be judged? Most of the people that write or make videos on anonymatus, will end up revealing their face at one point so if you are scared of being judged or that you will lose followers, you should get over it because your true friends will stay with you and that is the most important thing.
Why else do we write like this? Because we are affraid that of we express oureselves we are goong to be judged? Well things like this happen all the time. We are so terrified of being judged that we forget to do what we love, and share this with the world. And is soo wrong to act like that. There is always going to be someone out there who will criticise you. You can't do anything about those haters, but YOU CAN stop this getting to you. Ignore them and if you have any social media, take a photo with a bumblebee drown on your hand and use the #fictionalbumblebee so I know we are in this together. The # is rally random but most of you already know about my obsession for bumblebees.
To be honest I'm scared to post this but whooo carrreeesss...right? If I can inspire at least one of you I would be more than supercalifragilosticexpialidoucious.
Wow...this post was intense.
Hope you have a wonderful week and I'll talk to you soon! Luv yea! Bye!

Hello there guys!
First, I wanna start this post by saying sorry for missing so much. The reason behind this dissaparition is because this past couple of mounths I was in a terrible mood. I felt really sad for no reason and even if my friends were always there, supporting me, I was still felling lonely and useless. I still feel a little bit like that, but I'm back and I'm gonna be fine. I promise this won't happen again. Not for this long, anyway.
Now moving on to the announcement. I'm thinking of starting the "Be a tourist in your fictional hometown" mounth soon. The only thing is: I am not really well prepared for this. So I was thinking that maybe we could leave this for September or Octomber.
Two reasons why this could still be amazing:
1.Everything is better in autumn.
2.Even with the school started, you can still travel.
So I think this is what am I going to do. I really really wanna do that, and so far I have nothing important for the mounth of August, therefore I'll be having plently of time to organize everything.
Thanks for understanding everything.
I hope you have an amazing (×♾) week and I'll see you really soon with a wrap uo, perhaps, I don't know...ok, bye!!!!!!!!!!
sâmbătă, 28 mai 2016
Today I decided to share with you an idea that I've been trying to develop for better than 2 weeks. Now, I've got this idea 1 year ago, but at that time, I didn't had the motivation to do that, and I don't know what happend but now I do.
What is this all about?
I don't know right now when exactly I'm going to put this project on move, but it will most probably be either next mounth or in August. Either way, be sure I'll be anouncing this a week before the actual "event".
What I want you to do for this?
Post in the comment photos with you visiting your hometown or if you want to put them on Instagram or twitter please, please, please tag me or/and add #touristinyourfictionalhometown.
You can find my social-media on the "contact me" page. If you are wondering why is there "fictional hometown" is because every town is beautiful and it looks like it is out of a fictional world, no matter where you live. :D
Hope you have a magnificent week, have fun and see yeah soon!!! :*

Here is a short post for you! So...most of you already know that I volunteer at HOSPICE Casa Sperantei, and you already know that I definitely recommend to volunteer at least once a year. I've searched a bit the Internet, and there is no post that says what to do when you volunteer. And yeah, it might sound strange that I'm telling you what to do...but here are just 3 easy things that I want you to do while volunteer, because it is free!
1. Whatever you do...do it with love: I know...It sounds so clichee...but it is true. Whether you are taking care of someone, or just create something that later on will be sold... do it from your heart. Don't expect anything back, and just do it because you want to.
2. Stop for a second and look around: Again whether you are taking care of someone or you are having a crafting session, like I mainly do, take a break and look around. Look at all this volunteers that are here for the same reasons as you are. To help making the world a better place. Now that you see all this it is time for the last step.
3. Smile: Do this simple move, because I'm sure you found 1-2 volunteers that you are friends with, or if you got the luck I had (and I really hope you do), up to 15 really good friends (and they know who they are). I am really grateful for the friends I have made, and I am really happy that I was lucky enough to find them . They help me whenever I need
and I always try to do the same, even though I'm not sure it works. Also, I am forever grateful for my sister, who got me into volunteering, and told me that it is going to be fun, and she was so right. I am always having such a great time in there, and knowing that at the same time I'm helping someone makes me even happier.
I really hope you will do this things next time you volunteer somewhere, and I really hope that you are doing so very well. Remember! You are never alone. Always talk to someone you trust, because it forever helps.
This mounth was pretty full for me, but I still got to read some books :)
I'm gonna get started then.
The first book I've read is "The statistical probabilty of Love at first sight" by Jennifer E. Smith...and I loved it... mainly because I went for a week in London, and I related to the main character sooo much. YEAH... I did not sit near a cute guy...but the trip was really nice. And I got a Ron Weasley wand(wich this is really out of the subject). I gave that book 4/5 stars just because it was a little bit clichee...but you know ... I do enjoy this type of books.
Next I've read "Percy Jackson and the Lightening Thief" by Rick Riordan and I absolutly love it....I am not sure if I said this before on this blog, but reading Percy Jackson is like rereading Harry Potter....but with Greek Gods....Kind of...I don't know...I really like this series and I can't wait to read the next ones. 5/5 stars for this one.
Lastly, I've read "Between Shades of Grey" by Ruta Sepetys and even though you could see that coming... it still was a beautiful book with a really strong message and I absolutly loved this one as well. And I'll also rate it 5/5 stars.
So...even if I didn't read that many books, I still really enjoyed all the book I've read and also, I am not sure how much I am going to read this mounth because I have my finals, though I'll really try to post updates or at least one book review.
Hope you have an amazing week, and let me know what you read this mounth.
marți, 19 aprilie 2016
So...March was a really good reading mounth for me, because, even though I had been busy with school, I also got to read 6 books, and most of them I absolutly love them.
The first book I've read was "The begining of everything" by Robyn Schneider, and I have a review on that one, on my blog, and I believe I gave it 4/5 stars.
Then I've read "Adolescenta pe tocuri" by Maria Benga and Andra Boros, and the reason why you might don't understand the title it is because it is a Romainian book, by Romanian authors, so yeahhh... I t wasn't the best book I've read, and at a point I found it a bit boring, but it was okay. I think I will rate it 2/5 stars.
Then I've read "The Alchimist" by Paulo Coelho, and I do enjoyed this book, a lot, and I'll rate it 4.5/5 stars. It was a really quick read, I believe I've read it in a day, I think it was inspirational, and even if this was a really big metaphor, you can easily see the message behind the story.
"Clockwork Angel" by Cassandra Clare was my fourth read of the mounth and I absolutly loved it, I gave it 5/5 stars, and Will <3 <3.
"The decision book" was a non-fiction book, and I don't pretty much know what I should say about it...I mean...it was okay...but I don't have to many things to say about it.
The last book I've read in march was "Divergent" by Veronica Roth and I absolutly adore this one as well, I gave it 5/5 stars, and as a matter of fact, today I've purchased the othre two books, and I can't wait to read them. Fun fact: I am reading them with one of my bestfriend's, we are both reading them for the first time and we love this series.
And this is my march wrap up...yeah...I know...it is a bit late...sorry for that.
Hope you have an amazing week.....Bye!
marți, 5 aprilie 2016
Unfortunetly, my march wrap up is not yet here, because if you follow me on Instagram and snapchat you will know that I'm not actually home!
I'm at Grid!! And if you don't know what's that, basically Grid is a village near Brasov, about an hour or so, in Romania.
So, yeah....that is a big reveal....I'm from Romania!
Anyway...I'm here since friday, and I've done some pretty cool activities!
My activites includes photography, wich you will see some of them in here, and also reading.
I'm am curently reading "The sky is everywhere" by Jandy Nelson, and "The statistic probability of love at first sight" by Jennifer E. Smith.
Then I took my penny bord, and I started skating.
And I fell of the bord and hurt my leg, and I stood put for a little bit.
Also, I took a bike ride to a villege near our pension, and it was amazing. If you ever got the chance to travel to the country side, just take your bike with you and go for a bike ride. It is going to free your mind completely but it will also blow it away. You are going to see everything that is beautiful in this world and you are going to apreciate it.
This is what my weekend trip lookd like, anyway I hope you have an amazing weekend and I wish you an amazing week!
P.S.: I am so sorry for puting this post so late, I writed it on sunday, but when I came home, I was tired, and yesterday a.k.a. monday, my wifi went down, and I just couldn't post it.
P.P.S.: I am also going to post my March Wrap Up, later today, so keep an eye out for that.
duminică, 20 martie 2016
No longer a front-runner for Homecoming King, Ezra finds himself at the table of misfits, where he encounters new girl Cassidy Thorpe. Cassidy is unlike anyone Ezra’s ever met, achingly effortless, fiercely intelligent, and determined to bring Ezra along on her endless adventures.
But as Ezra dives into his new studies, new friendships, and new love, he learns that some people, like books, are easy to misread. And now he must consider: if one’s singular tragedy has already hit and everything after it has mattered quite a bit, what happens when more misfortune strikes?
What I say: In my opinion, this book was a really good book, because it has a love story and also friendship......and it is a contemporary (my favourite genre).
First of all, this book is one of that book wich stays with you for quite a long time. I'm still thinking of this book and I finished it last weekend.
I am not going to spoil you, with anything, and this is not a Harry Potter book to say that everybody should read it, because you don't have anything so important to learn from it. I'm just going to say, that there is an unexpected ending.
Second of all, though the start of the book marked me, and I wasn't sure I wanted to continue reading, I'm glad I did, because I think it was amazing. The characters were so real for me and it was really easey to get absorbed by the story. And let me just tell you, that Harry Potter was mentiond 7 times in this book (without that times when it was reapeting, which was just 2 times)....I mean....what....7 times.....the magic number from Harry Potter.
Anyway....All in all this book was really nice and I think it was worth the time I spent on reading it. I recomend it to everybody who likes contemporary books, but keep it in mind that you might not like it at first.
I mean, this book might have a lot of fans, but I think it also has a lot of haters.
Also this are all my opinions and I would really like to hear you opinion on this book, so let me know what you think about it in the comments.
I'll rate it 4/5 stars.

What they say: "August Pullman wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things. He eats ice cream. He plays on his Xbox. He feels ordinary - inside.
But Auggie is far from ordinary. Ordinary kids don't make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids don't get stared at wherever they go.
Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life, in an attempt to protect him from the cruelty of the outside world. Now, for the first time, he's being sent to a real school - and he's dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all?"
Here is just a really quick post, about the books I've read in February. Also, I plan on posting a book review later today, so keep an eye out for that.
Now.... the first book I've read in February was "Attachments" by Rainbow Rowell, and you know how much I love Rainbow Rowell's writing style, so I'll give this book 5/5 stars.
As you can see, I try to do a rating sistem on my mounthly Wrap Up's.
The next book, was actually an audiobook called "Let Go" by Pat Flynn. This book was a memoir, and I must say it was really inspirational. It is abou Pat Flynn, and the conpany he worked for went bankrupt, so he was fired. At a point he started this blog, and more and more peolpe started following it, so the book is about internet business and online marketing. And I gave this book 4/5 stars.
The last book I've read was "Wonder" by R.J. Palacio, and I plan on making a review for this book too. "Wonder" is about this boy, called August Pullman who was born with a terrible facial abnormality. I really enjoyed this book, and I really recommend it to anybody who is interested in reading it, and I gave it 5/5 stars.
So this is my February wrap up, now, If I were you, I would expect 2 book reviews soon, and perhaps a movie review.
Hope you all have an amazing week, and If you don't, try to talk to someone, it will really help you!

Second of all....yesterday I bought "Red Queen " by Victoria Aveyard.
What is HOSPICE?
HOSPICE is a Non-governmental organization witch provides medical assistance for childrens and adults diagnosed with a life threatening illness.
How does HOSPICE helps the comunity?
Well......HOSPICE has a lot of services such as Palliative care at home, HOSPICE impatient unit admission, activities in the day centre, physiotherapy treatment, social services etc.

This mounth was a really good reading mounth, not because I read a lot of books....because I did not...I read just three books, but becase I read really good books.
The reason why I did not read a lot is because it was the end of the semester, I had a lot of homework to do, and also, besides school and reading, I also have been busy with volunteering.
Anyway, this mounth I read three books and they are:
"Lola and the boy next door" by Stephenie Perkins.
It was a really nice book, and even though I did not like it as much as I liked "Anna and the French Kiss" I still fall in love with the characters and also with the ending of that book.
"Isla and the happily ever after" by Stephenie Perkins
I did not like this one ...pretty much at all...I know.... Plot twist :)))......But I absolutly love the ending.
If you are wondering the reason why I did not like it is because I did not like the characters...don't know why, though. I jus think the first two are so much better.
And the last book I read was "The Queen of the Tearling" by Erika Johansen....I think this book was really good, and I did not expected that....but really... you should read it.
This is my wrap up for the mounth, sorry for beeing late. I'll see you soon, with a diffrent kind of post called Book Haul....again!!!
Question Of The Day: Have you ever volunteered for a company? If yes...what company are you volunteering for?
I would really like to write more about volunteering, so let me know if you woud like to read about that. Have a wonderful week. Bye!

Guess what! I've got my owlcrate box!!! Yeey!
And today I'm going to unbox it for you. The first thing I want to say, besides that the price was huge, is that it came really fast, and I did not expect that! So I think it is defenetly worth it.
Now the first thing I see is the Owlcrate card, wich looks stunning! On the back is says the things that you will find in the box, so I will not read it just now.
The next thing is a POP figurine.....awwww and I got Dumbledore!!! That is so nice! Even though I would like Ron....But that's amazing!!!!!
Ok....next I have a bookmark...and it has a quote from the Raven Boys books. Unfortunatly I did not read the series, so I do not know from wich book is but is says "She wasn't interested in telling other people's future. She was interested in going out and finding her own". And I think the quote sounds so nice....really.
The next is another art....WoW...That is so nice! This quote is from the Throne of Glass series. And it sounds so pretty. And this two really pretty quotes/art were created by Evie Bookish.
WoW!! A lip balm! awww....and it is a patronus one!! So cool!! This one is from Geek Fire Labs, and it smells amazing.
Now....the big reveal....what book it is going to be?
And the book is "Worlds of ink and Shadow" by Lena Coakley. And it looks like a retelling of the Brontes sisters...I think it is going to be nice. It has a note from the author and a sneek peek of the synopsys is:
"Charlotte, Branwell, Emily and Anne. The Brontes have always been inseparable. After all, nothing can bound four sibilings quite like life in an isolated parsonage out on the moors. Their vivid imaginations lend them escape from their strict upbringing, actually transporting them into their created worlds"
So this is the unboxing guys. Dubledore looks so cool on my shelf. :)))
And this is how they look togheter.
Hope you enjoyed, I hope you have the best week, everey week.

As you can see, Today (17.01.2016) is my Birthday!!!!
I am finally 16 years old! This year, my sister decided to go with my Harry Potter obssesion, and obviously, he gave me a Hogwarts acceptance letter!!!
And that it is not all. She also gave me a Hufflepuff T-shirt, a Harry Potter a la Hagrid cake(made by her) and "The Hobbit" book by J.R.R. Tolkien.
I did not recieved a lot of books, I think they are actually 2 books. The next one, I've got it from my BFF, and it is "Cries from the Earth" by Terry C. Johnston. And guess what! It got a map. I think books with maps are really uniqe, and I can't wait to read it.
Today, one of my friends from school gave me a Hogwarts acceptance letter, and a piggy Bank, to save money for my trip to London.
Also my friends bought me a lot of necklaces, and chocholate! My friends know me too well. I love them.
I am aware that this post is again really short, and I'm thinking to make an "As I read" series. Basically, I just mention the page, and my reaction on them. I'll make this for "The Queen of the Tearling" by Erika Johansen, and I'l see how this will turn up.
Hope you have a great week!

I know it is a little bit late for this type of post, but I want to talk to you about my reading resolutions this year.
And I'm gonna jump straight in:
1.Read 10 new series.
I know it is a lot of series...and I don't know if I will complete that...but I will try.
2.Attend bookish events
Even if it is a Book Festival or a book release, I really want to go. Who kows...maybe I'll get my books signed.
3. Read 40 books.
This is my goodreads challenge.
4. Read at least 3 classics.
This is for the entire year. Yeah...classics are not my favourites.
5.Make 1 book review/month.
I'll try to make time for this.
6. Read the books from Emma Watson's Book Club
Also because this post is soo short, I'm also gonna tel you top 5 favourite books from 2015:
1. "Harry Potter" by J.K.Rowling
2. "Fangirl" by Rainbow Rowell
3. "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak.
4. "The Perks of Being a wallflower" by Stephen Chbosky
5. "Anna and the french kiss" by Stephanie Perkins
This was it. I tried to sit down at my desk, and write a post for a few days now...I just didn't knew what to write about. I finally found this idea, even though is not that long... I'm really sorry for this.
Please let me know what you will like to see next.
