Hello bookish peeps! If you saw my Instagram story this past weekend you would’ve known that I attended my very first LeakyCon. If you don’t know what LeakyCon is, it is basically a huge convention dedicated to Harry Potter and all its stories and franchises.
My friend told me about this convention and I was stoked. When I told my sister about it (who is also a huge fan of Harry Potter), she decided to get us tickets as an early birthday present to me.
I’ve been to festivals before (book festivals, to be exact), but I never have been to a convention. I figured the two were similar, except one had more cosplaying than the other. I only went for one day (Friday), but it was a ton of fun.
I have a confession to make: I’ve never watched Hocus Pocus. Okay, so hear me out. Although I grew up in America, I did not grow up in the American culture. So, I’ve never watched timeless movies like Princess Bride and Hocus Pocus. (Okay, I have watched Princess Bride, but only recently). I grew up without a TV, and my family never went to the movie theatres because there weren’t any nearby, which is why I had to turn to books for entertainment.
I was tagged by the lovely Laura over at The Book Corps. Make sure to check out her blog and send her some love!
There are no rules. It’s YOUR blog. But if would be nice if you linked back to Never Not Reading, and maybe the person who tagged you too. Share the love folks.
Feel free to use the GIFs used by Never Not Reading, the graphics made by Flavia the Bibliophile if you would like, both, or make and use your own visuals!
It’s already half way through November, which means fall is coming to an end.
(If you can’t tell, I really like the fall season.)
I’ve been pretty behind on blogging and reading in general, but when I saw that I was tagged to do the Fall Book Tag, I had to get onto it immediately… except I didn’t. These past couple weeks have been rough and I haven’t been able to get enough sleep, even on weekends. That’s why I’ve been struggling to keep up with everything. Also, I discovered the Webtoons app and have been obsessed with all the comics and stories on it ever since, putting me even more behind on work.
No excuses, though! I screwed my head on straight again and now I’m going to try and stop procrastinating to get my life back on track (and hopefully get a little bit more sleep).
I was tagged by the lovely Marta over at The Book Mermaid. Make sure to check out her blog and send her some love ❤

It’s finally starting to feel like fall where I live. After having a good six months of 90+ ˚F (32+ ˚C) weather, I’m about ready to bust out my sweaters and finally go outside without sweating buckets.
I was tagged by Heather over at The Sassy Book Geek. Thanks so much for tagging me! Don’t forget to check out her blog. She writes really thoughtful and honest reviews.
October wasn’t a good reading month for me. Maybe these November releases will get me through my reading slump I suspect I’m in right now.

Previous days: Day 1 | Day 2
For the last day of this tag, I decided to take a quote from my all-time favorite series, Harry Potter.
You! If you want to do this tag, then consider yourself tagged!
Until next time….
I’ve always known about Pottermore, but I never actually took the Hogwarts house sorting quiz. Now that it was recently announced that there’s a witch and wizard school in America (and in honor of Harry Potter’s birthday month), I decided to finally take both of the quizzes.
I was always the nerdy one in my friend group. I love reading about the weirdest facts, and watch educational videos for fun. Yup. That’s what I do in my freetime. While my peers are going out to the mall to hang out, I stay in bed and watch documentaries. So obviously growing up, I thought I was a Ravenclaw. Boy, was I wrong!
OH MY GOODNESS IT’S ALREADY JULY!
June went by so fast for me… It feels like I just got out of school yesterday.
I’m currently in a reading slump, so I haven’t been reading at all lately. Hopefully one of my July anticipated releases will get me out of it soon!
Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes and created by Lainey @ Ginger Reads Lainey. You can check out the group’s Goodreads page to join and check out the topics of the month.
This Week’s Topic: Characters I’m Most Like
I am supposed to choose characters that I am like, not who I want to be like. Because most of the books I read have characters that are badass and fearless (very UNlike me), I decided to take things that I descibe myself with and try and match them with different characters. This is going to be interesting.
