Film Frenzy: November and December 2018 (part 1)

Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be talking about some of the films I watched in November and December. As I watched quite a lot of films throughout these two months, I wasn’t sure if the post might get a bit long so I decided to do it in two halves. Onto the post!

Recommending Books to Winnie the Pooh Characters | Disney Recommendations #3

Hello everybody! Today, I’m going to be continuing on in my Disney recommendations posts, by recommending some stories for some of the inhabitants of the One Hundred Acre Woods, which I decided to do this month to celebrate it being release month for the Christopher Robin DVD, which means I can finally see it. Onto the post!


Winnie the Pooh– when I think of Pooh Bear, the first thing that comes to mind is the sort of nostalgic, whimsical feeling the stories featuring him carry, and that’s why I think he’d lovethe Children of Castle Rock. It really reminded me of classic adventure stories by authors such as Enid Blyton, and it also has really lovely yet complex friendships, which is another of my favourite features of Winnie the Pooh: the friendships between the characters are gorgeous.

Piglet– speaking of being a good friend, I think that’s the first thing that comes to mind for Piglet- he’s a great friend to everyone around him. I love a good best friend character, and I think my favourite ever is Nat from Geek Girl. She’s not perfect and she has her own stuff going on too and she and Harriet fall out sometimes, but when Harriet needs her, Nat is always there, no matter what. She’s a wonderful character, and I’d hope Piglet would enjoy seeing someone being as good a friend as he is.

Tigger– Tigger was the other tricky one, because how does one find a book as overwhelmingly joyous as Tigger? However, I think Alex Sparrow fits the bill- they’re boisterous and full of humour and happiness, just like Tigger, and I think they’d definitely appeal to him!

Eeyore– Eeyore was the hardest one of these to get right, because I think the first thing anyone thinks of about Eeyore is his misery, and I was really struggling to think of something for that trait. But then I remembered that as part of that, Eeyore is rather a pessimist- he always expects the worst to happen, and I realised a Pinch of Magic would be perfect for him. It’s about three sisters (who have generally pretty rubbish luck) trying to break their family curse, and while I won’t say what happens I think it would benefit Eeyore to read their story.

Rabbit– Rabbit is my very favourite of the gang, mainly because I think we’re super alike in personality, so his recommendation was super easy. You Only Live Once by Jess Vallance centres on a girl called Gracie realising there’s more to life than rigid organisation and perfection, and since Rabbit’s stories often focus on this I think this book would be great for him.

Kanga and Roo– Kanga and Roo are a mother and child pairing, so for their recommendation I decided to go for the Malory Towers books, as I remember having quite a few of those read to me by my mum and dad when I was a child, and the last 2 Pamela Cox additions particularly stand out because I was read a few chapters a day while I was in hospital after brain surgery. The chapters are often quite episodic, so they worked super well for having a few chapters read to you at a time. I think they’d be perfect for Kanga and Roo to share together.


Which books would you recommend to these characters? Have you read any that I’ve mentioned? I’d love to hear in the comments!

5 Bookish Items I’d Like To Own

Hello everybody!

Today, I’m taking part in Top Ten Tuesday (hosted by Jana), and today’s theme is bookish items we’d like to own, and like with my past few TTTs I’ve done a shorter list as I was struggling to come up with the full amount, mainly because most books I love don’t have items for them that I know of. Onto the post!

Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I Want to Dress Up As

Hello everybody! Today, as part of Top Ten Tuesday‘s Halloween freebie week, I’m talking about a few characters (from books, TV and film, because I was struggling to think of more than a couple, which is also why my list is five instead of ten! Some fit into a couple of categories though). Onto the post!

Recommending Books to the Disney Princesses

Hello everybody! Today, I’m doing a post inspired by some blog posts/Booktube videos I’ve seen recently where people recommend books to people based on their Hogwarts house or recommend books to some of the biggest YouTube stars, and I decided I wanted to do something similar for Disney characters. I’m planning for this to be a series, and I’m starting off with the Disney Princesses! Onto the post!
