It’s Friday again guys, and it’s double, triple, quadruple happy times because it’s a BANK HOLIDAY! In celebration, I’m typing this while drinking a coffee with one sugar instead of none. Don’t hate me cos you ain’t me.
Bookshelves & Biros Picture of the Week
— Harry Potter Play (@HPPlayLDN) April 29, 2016
Quite literally, actually. Excuse me whilst I go and have a little happy cry.
Bookshelves & Biros Round Up
An all-day Harry Potter party in conjunction with Mugglenet, a special A Monster Calls panel with Patrick Ness and eleventy million new authors added to an already pretty peachy line up? YALC certainly knows how to play to its audience. I can’t wait to see the full schedule when it gets released!
If you can’t make YALC but you can get to London, go forth and check out #YAShot, which is in October. The day time festivities are followed by the UK Young Adult Book Blogger Awards (YABBA, for short), so its pretty much guaranteed to be an incredible day and evening. I can’t go, so you lot should totally go on my behalf and then TELL ME EVERYTHING.
I would genuinely love to go to this, but I am far too much of a wimp and I’m also terrified that the ventriloquist’s doll (YOU KNOW THE ONE I’M TALKING ABOUT, R.L. STINE FANS) would be there.
Another day, another adaption announcement, but just look at that voice cast! Olivia Colman, James McAvoy and Ben Kingsley? I feel like this is a great time to be alive, y’know?
The best advice I’ve seen this week
I just have to give a shout out to Naz over at Read Diverse Books, who wrote the most brilliant piece for bloggers this week. He totally summed up why it’s great to be a blogger, plus he gave loads of tips which I guarantee you will find useful whether you’ve been blogging two weeks or twelve months! Go check it out.
Count Olaf spotted in Canada
Just HOW on point does Neil Patrick Harris look in his Count Olaf get up?! As each day goes by I get more and more desperate for this Series of Unfortunate Events adaption to hit my laptop screen.
Added to the Bookshelves & Biros Wishlist
I added this tote-ally cute bag to my holiday shopping list this week. I’m justifying the purchase as an essential travel item because I need a suitable vessel to carry my books to the beach in.
I hope you all have the most wonderfully bookish weekend! Let me know if you’ve seen anything that you just can’t help sharing this week.
