Being part of this Travelling Book Project was honestly a delight! And what a book The Night Circus was!
Shoutout to the people that made this experience so wonderful : @izzytheheartbrekker (thank you for setting this up in the first place), @slytherin-bookworm-guy, @pollyandbooks, @curls-and-books, @thelittleyellowumbrella, @adaughterofsmokeandbone, @traveltheworldwithaflaskoftea, @seducedbybooks, @a-book-junkie, @queennovella, @violinwaist, @immzies-adventures-through-books.

I was tagged by the lovely b00kstorebabe and antstepsbooks to do the mug selfie challenge!

Here are the rules:

1. Post a photo of you and your favorite mug
2. Tell us why it’s your favorite and/or post a link so we can buy it
3. Tag at lease 5 people- three people you talk to, and two people you admire from afar
4. Tag your post #mugselfie

I choose my Wonder Woman mug because hello, Diana is a badass and I love her! I got it as Continente (it’s a supermarket in portugal) but I’m sure there’s a lot of other cool WW mugs around the interwebs!

now I tag: bookmad, booksthatspellmagic, bookswithbazzi, bookishmadness, bookishworld, soggywarmpockets, madalenav, beccathelitwitch, theboywhocriedbooks, laura-silvae, tilly-and-her-books, books-and-cookies, adaughterofsmokeandbone, boneseasonofglass, inkanndbooks, a-n-n-e-m-a-r-i-e, nevillebookbottom, anarrayofbooks, j-k-reading, the-shybooksnoahczherny, amberthebooklion, freckles-and-books and kat-from-minasmorgul



In the evening at Hay I also got to meet the lovely Beth from adaughterofsmokeandbone who was super adorable and if you aren’t already following her then you totally should because she is LOVELY! We went to the New Voices in YA panel that I mentioned previously and both really enjoyed it.

I also got some books at Hay (no surprise there), most of them from the Oxford second hand book stall. I’m really pleased with what I found and I’m so happy that I also finally managed to get The Assassin’s Blade, because I’ve been meaning to buy it for ages.

Overall I had such a lovely time at Hay, as I always do, and I’m so glad I got to meet Beth, some amazing authors, and go book shopping with my mum (something we both love doing). If you can get to Hay this year (it’s still on for another week) then I’d definitely recommend it, or try and go next year!

Polly you are gorgeous and pigs are cute anyways and are super duper hygienic so I think that horrid anon was just trying to compliment you. Post all the selfies you want because the anons are probably white boys jealous of your self confidence plus you are a 100000% bookish babe. Don't let the wannabe haters get you down sunshine<3

Hahaha thank you so much babe ily ♥️

Follow Forever

I’ve recently reached 1000 followers on this blog *squeals*, so I thought I’d do a follow forever to share some of my favourite people here on tumblr.

I’ll try to put as many of you as possible, but I’m really sorry if you’re not on the list (I probably just forgot, I love you all).

Anyways, thank you so much to each and everyone who is following me, and thank you for inspiring me with your beautiful bookshelf pictures!

Today I reached over 1,800 followers, which is absolutely crazy and I can’t believe it. It’s a blessing, because I met so many friends here and I can share my passion with other people. I can’t thank you all enough. A simple “thank you” is not enough. I love you so so much ♥

I want to do a giveaway when i reach 2K milestone, so right now we’re gonna stick with a good old follow forever!

Some of my lovely friends (even though I don’t talk with some of you everyday or we talk only on tumblr, I still consider you friends)
