Hello, good morning! I know, two Harry Potter posts in a roll on this section, but what can I do? They seem to give me luck, by announcing my wanted books, haha! From all 12 posts I did about my desired editions (some solemnly made on Instagram), I managed to buy 2 of them. Go, me! Lol
Hi, there! Good Thursday to you 😀 Today it’s Must-Have Edition of the Month day and I thought it would be nice to share which book I’ve been haunting since Christmas: the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone!
No, seriously. Look at this!
I’ve been seeing pics of this book all over Instagram and I’m dying to have my own copy 😦 Unfortunately, I’m not finding for less than 100 dollars… The world can be so unfair.
I already interacted with this book in a local bookstore, so I know it is double hardcover with a ribbon mark, nice and fancy paper and the most cute illustrations ever, made by Jim Kay ❤
I SHALL HAVE MY COPY SOMEDAY, JUST WATCH ME!
That’s it! Thanks for reading ❤ Have you already grabbed your illustrated edition copy??
Hello, there! Merry Christmas to all of you that, like me, celebrate this beautiful date 😀 ❤ If you don’t, enjoy this beautiful Friday! I hope everyone is having a great time and a wonderful Holiday!
I’m sorry I’m only saying this now, but I’m at my relatives’ place and computer/blogging time is seriously compromised, oops! Haha!
I can’t complain about my Christmas Eve or party, it was awesome! The food, my Family reunited after so many months apart… I loved it! Even the secret friend thing that I was totally not okay with turned up to be tons of fun. I guess it wouldn’t hurt do it next year as well! 😀
I won lots of Christmas presents, but mainly clothes, not books. I was dressing like a homeless girl on my last dissertation months, so my mom gave me many new clothes to start 2016 looking good, haha! It was nice, but clothes are not books. Which brings us to my “official” Christmas present: a gift card for a local bookstore and season 7 of Supernatural, Limited Edition package!!! *—*
I got to love my younger cousin!
(cof and the older one that kindly lend me his computer for this post cof)
Also, I’d like to make a small reflection here. Several people that I know in the off-line world condemn Christmas as a solemly capitalistic Holiday nowadays, but I disagree. I with the market does what it takes to sell their stuff; if you fall for them, it’s up to you. For me, Christmas is all about being with my family, with people that I love and that love me back. It’s all about sharing and giving. If you receive back, much the better. We gathered around our dinning table yesterday and no one was busy in their celphones (myself included), no one was worried with the outside world or in a hurry to leave. It was all about us being together in such a beautiful day. And I’d like to thank my parents for raising me like this, for having taught me how delicious it is to be with family as much as you can.
As I’m Brazilian, we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving. So, at Christmas time, I thank for all the good things I have in my life: my family, my friends (both off and online), my personal achivements through life, for my dissertation’s success and, of course, this blog and its beautiful readers! Thank you all!
That’s it, haha! Sorry if I sounded a bit cheesy, but come on, it’s Christmas! Who cares about that as long as it was sincere, right? ❤ Hope your day is being as lovely as mine!
Hello, again! Today I’d like to talk a little about the best selling books of 2015! I know we still have a couple of days left, but Book Depository already did a list of the best selling books of the year and I selected a few of them to put on my personal whish list, haha! If you want to send me a Christmas present, here is what you can get me LOL (just kidding):
Seems like AGES ago, but coloring books went viral this year and I loved this wave, as I always like to color ❤ I bought a Parisian themed one and a Frozen themed one, but I still want many more, like these:
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Illustrated Edition)
Do I need to say more? LOL
To Kill a Mockingbird 50TH Anniversary edition
I’ve read this book in the beginning of my college years, but it was a friend’s borrowed book, so I still need to get myself a copy of this amazing novel ❤
Go Set A Watchman, from Harper Lee
As I loved TKAM, it’s only logical that I’m dying to read this book, right? Haha!
The Witches : Salem, 1692, from Stacy Schiff
As soon as this book was released [LINK], I knew it was good stuff and that I had to read it. Now I can’t wait to put my hands on it!
Carry On, from Rainbow Rowell
I just started reading Fangirl and already am in love with it! I can’t wait to read Carry On!
The Death House, from Sarah Pinborough
I LOVE THIS WOMAN. I didn’t even know this book and I already need to read it ❤
The Mortal Instruments 1: City of Bones, from Cassandra Clare
I plan on start to read her next year, so I need the books, haha!
The Sin Eater’s Daughter, from Melinda Salisbury
I’ve read a friend’s review for this book and it left me so curious! Now I want to read the book as well, haha!
The Miniaturist, from Jessie Burton
So many people talked about this book at Instagram! I want to play along, haha!
The Serpent Papers, from Jessica Cornwell
I just learned about this book and sounded amazing. I like those kind of fictions that sounds like non fiction ❤
