Hi, everyone! As I’m sure you all have noticed, the holiday season is upon us. I always try to do some sort of bookish holiday gift guide on the blog, and for this year’s, I decided to recommend books to each Hogwarts House that I feel fit the characteristics of that House. I’ve wanted to do a series of book recommendations based on Hogwarts Houses for a while, and what better time than now, when you can add these to your holiday wishlist? (This was partially inspired by Rachel @ Rec-It Rachel’s holiday gift guide this year, which I’ve been loving.) Here are my recommendations for Ravenclaw and Slytherin, in case you missed them! Today, I’m bringing you some recommendations for one of […]
This book….was such a disappointment. I thought I was going to enjoy this book so much, sooo much. It sounded like it would be right up my alley.

Erica, why only 3 stars if it was such a wonderful story? 1. It was unbelievably predictable and that took away from my enjoyment. 2. The family aspect was a little…”eh.” 3. The. Ending.
