Instagram Sundays: 1 October

I’m a little bit late with my post today, I’m so sorry!  I was actually in Stratford-Upon-Avon all day with Scottish Fiance and friends –we had such an amazing time!  If  you don’t know, Stratford is Shakespeare’s birthplace, and where we was buried when he died.  We’re fully Shakespeare’d up, so without further ado here is Instagram Sunday!



I had a marathon YouTube filming session in order to get my September Round-Up finished in time.  I considered doing one more video, but Dax had had enough of me by that point.  ‘Don’t you think you’ve yelled about books enough for one night?  Go read one!’



The Language of Thorns came out on Tuesday!  Ahhhh!!  I actually decided to stroll down to my local Waterstones on Monday to try my luck, and sure enough they had it!  I cannot wait to get to this.  It’s so gorgeous inside and out.



I raided my local Primark for Harry Potter merch.  Although they were sold out of the individual house merchandise, of course, but I managed to snag some Hogwarts gear!  The mug now lives on my desk at work and I wear my socks all the time.



I’ve made so many commitments in the month of October that I needed a new planner.  I had trouble finding one I really liked, but this one will suit until the end of January!  I think I might need to get into bullet journaling in order to actually have what I need from a planner, but I don’t want to!



Ahhh,  a much needed reshuffle of my TBR pile.  It had just been piling up and up over the months and never shrinking.  I decided to take everything away and start fresh.  I’m hoping to only read books from this pile this month!



I read Matilda for the first time this week.  I have to say that I absolutely loved it.  I love Roald Dahl so much and this was the only one of his children’s books I hadn’t read.  If you haven’t read Matilda yet, I highly recommend it!



A snap from Stratford!  We were in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s theatre in town and I saw this amazing art installation inspired by Romeo and Juliet.  It’s 2,000 silver stars folded together to create 3D stars, then hung from the ceiling to create this image.  It’s fully 3D, but you cannot really see that from the photo.  It’s truly stunning!


That’s it for this week!  I promised to step up my Instagram game, and I think it’s working so far!  If you’re on Bookstagram, definitely let me know — I’d love to follow you.  You can find me at @ishouldreadthat
