I actually genuinely laughed so hard at this children's book! ๐Ÿคฃ how memory can twist ever so slightly with your shopping list! Why was I here?

The lighthouse keeper and his battle against the seagulls stealing his yummy lunch! A story I empathise with (got bitten once trying to grab my lunch from my hand!) Cute book, good illustrations ๐Ÿ˜Š

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Book 2)
2015 . Rowling, J.K.

๐Ÿ Ahh it is just SO good. Thanks to a fellow's suggestion, I've been reading this at night with a torch feeling like a child again ๐Ÿ”ฆ but I'm also stunned at how much I don't feel like a child. I'm a fully enthralled adult, who knows the entire plot and yet athirst for each approaching word.  It really doesn't feel like a children's book, except for a few bits earlier on where it was re-explaining stuff. Great audience capacity. I was glad to see Moaning Myrtle wasn't creepy flirting with Harry the whole time like the films. Also do enjoy seeing what is different in the books. SO hard to put down. By the end I was so hyped, pumped, excited! So much joy. Excited for the next! ๐Ÿงน "It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
2015 . J.K. Rowling

It is just so good! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ Really, that I can read this as a 7 year old child and again as an adult, and it still holds the same captivating energy and without lack for deep words/ tone. It shows that children's writing can be full bodied and doesn't have to be so simple an adult is bored. It's a beautiful skill to write one thing for all ages. โญ Every night I'm rereading these books and it is SO hard to go to sleep because I'm gripped!! ๐Ÿคฉ it got me good Also impressed with how many words or phrases I wasn't familiar with. Love love love the depth to this writing and this world, how it can be read simply or analysed further. And love to be reminded of what is changed for the films. Also impressed how much happens in such short a book. Kept looking at pages left thinking: how could all this happen? The writing is full and concise. ๐Ÿค” Though I do keep thinking about how Voldemort couldn't have gotten the stone without Harry being there anyway... but trying to reason that out of my mind! Except for that.. Brill. So glad I'm reading again ๐Ÿ“š "There are some things you can't share without ending up liking each other, and knocking out a twelve-foot mountain troll is one of them."

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿš’๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ“š I do love this book. Stunning, beautiful. Good quick read. Side note but it's actually incredible how we as humans have the capacity to memorise entire books. Lately been hearing of how Jesus would've known the entire Old Testament by memory as Jews studied it so much they knew it all by memory. I can barely remember yesterday.. Also fun fact, this book ironically is censored and banned in some schools in the States.

Harry Potter: The Complete Collection (1-7)
2015 . J.K. Rowling

So good. I still remember my dad buying me the first book, before anyone had ever heard of it. I was actually the exact age each book in this series was written for ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ so my dad read to me at night and slowly as each book came out and got more complex, I aged and my reading got better. I still remember waiting for each book to come out and get asap. (Then one day do the same with the films!) Very fond memories looking back at growing up with these books. Still have all the originals ๐Ÿฅฐ Beautifully written. Love the detail gone into creating this world. Even the Latin names for the spells etc and representations (like dementors and depression), foreshadowing, I mean Google the details.. even Snape's first question to Harry is a secret nod to his regret for his mother's death ๐Ÿคฏ. Loved them having different houses, like I had in school too (though we had less rivalry and magic - more losing housepoints for forgetting to do by homework ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ). Love how easy it is to be absolutely absorbed into this world. Really felt so accessible to your mind. I think that's why it's become so well loved. I do think the ending was painfully cheesy and I still remember the utter disappointment reading that section thinking it must've been added to please the people, but I'd have preferred without and to wonder. Preferred a different coupling too. But by this point, the series was very well known.. lot of watching eyes! Side fact / memory: when I moved to N. America, they would make me read Harry Potter to them so they could listen to it in an English accent ๐Ÿคฃ

Surrounded by Psychopaths
2020 . Thomas Erikson

image10

This book I recommend to EVERYONE. Cannot emphasise enough. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ I've never understood people so well as after reading this book. I've heard of the 4 colours so many times before but suddenly after reading this book; now it makes sense. I see a person, recognise their colour and know better how to understand them. Apparently the first book (surrounded by idiots) dwells more on the colours so must read that one!! But the beauty of this book is that he writes it so people can be aware of how to recognise a psychopath (which are so more common than you think).. to recognise how you may be manipulated and basically how to be aware and protect yourself. I learned SO much about myself, so much about how to understand others, and also in protecting from prevention for manipulation. I love that this is why the book was written. I've experienced people like this, so I know how really important it is to prevent (or run). A must read for all I believe! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Cute kids book, nice illustrations. Love the brick Street Boys! Clearly currency was different when this was written because I'd definitely do jobs for more than 3 or 5p! Great ending ๐Ÿ˜„

God on Mute
2007 . Pete Greig

Very good book, really enjoyed reading it. Best way I describe it is that he brings down all the beliefs and hope you had and then builds it back up. In a good way. I thought I never had a problem with unanswered prayer but I started to when reading this, then ended satisfied again. Like I went through the process and journey together. Beautifully takes you through many stories and experiences. Smiled and cried a lot. Some small concepts I didn't necessarily agree with but wonder if the author would have changed his mind since writing this. Worth a read and share. I sent to a friend immediately after finishing.
