Any rants or raves?
Anything to boast or even just chat about?

I…actually rather enjoyed Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets this time around! It’s my least favourite of the books, but I really liked paying attention to Ron – Of course, I forgot to remember to pay attention around the start of book 4 however. I was totally distracted by the fact that it said that the Lovegoods were at the Quidditch world cup. So Luna was actually in book 4! haha, she’s the best.
To be honest, if she’d been in book 3, we’ve had a book to end all books.

ooh! Also, the copy of The Smoke Thieves I got was from a seller. It came wrapped in plastic (boo) and has a sticker saying it’s signed! That’s pretty exciting

Still not finding time to read.
I might have to timetable it in at this rate…
