November Wrap Up

So I am now back from Australia and if you would like to read all about my travels you can read my holiday post. When I came back from Australia I had a bunch of parcels in the mail, most of which were expected apart from 1 which was a random package from Hodder and Stoughton which was a few merch-y type things to promote Laini Taylor’s upcoming release Strange the Dreamer. Sadly something happened in transport because everythng was sticky but I’m still super happy that they sent it to me.

After last month’s Fairyloot (follow me on instagram for fairyloot unboxings, make up hauls and my everyday life) I ordered a bunch of Meraki Candles, which are book inspired. They all smell so good, I got Jamie Fraser, Rowan, Rhysand, The Burrow and Draco. Apart from Draco the male fragrances are all quite masculine scents which I’m normally not a fan of but they smell so perfectly like the character that I love them. Draco is a mint chocolate smell which is just so Draco and also yummy at the same time. And I don’t want to talk about how good The Burrow smells.


A few days ago I hit 250 followers which I’m of course buzzing about, I can’t believe all of your follow my posts and like my posts and comment. I can’t thank you enough. I wasn’t sure if anyone would care when I started a book blog but here we are.

If you’ve watched Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, HOW GOOD WAS IT, I was crying a lot of the time. And I just saw Fantastic Beasts and adored it. I originally wasn’t interested in getting the screenplay as it’s a bit of a money grabbing ploy but I want it. Eddie Redmayne was so perfect, I adore him.

  1. Congrats on your followers, Kirsty! 🙂 I know a few people who received a package for that book. I heard it was some kind of water with colored liquid in a jar. Strange book mail, huh? Kinda cool though to come home to a surprise package. I hope you like The Distance Between Us. That’s a cute book. I really liked it. 🙂

  2. Ooh, I’m very jealous of your candle purchases!! I’m 100% addicted to candles at the moment, too. I noticed you picked up a copy of The Name of the Wind so I’m just going to quietly sit here and wait until you’ve read it because THAT BOOK. So good, man, so good!
