#S4S: Harry Potter Characters That Deserved Better

Snape is not on this list. The original prompt for this week was ‘clever characters’, but that didn’t give me much inspiration. Then, I thought of ‘Charatcers that deserved better’… but baisically all of my characters were by J.K Rowling. So, now I bring you six Harry Potter characters that deserved so much more –Continue reading “#S4S: Harry Potter Characters That Deserved Better”

One Time the Film Was Better than the Book (Yes I said It)

The book is always better than the film, right? That’s a rule I almost always live by. But there are some exceptions (I binged the Netflix version of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events during lockdown, and I hate to admit I preferred it to the books. At least in this, Snicket’s lengthy explanationsContinue reading “One Time the Film Was Better than the Book (Yes I said It)”

Clary Fray Is Not My Bae (City of Bones Review)
