Top 5 Wednesday: Things on your bookshelf that aren't books

It’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is things on your bookshelf that aren’t books. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey. So let’s get started…

Number 5: An owl and a TID necklace

All of the items on my bookshelf, I feel make my bookshelf look nicer, hence the owl. I received it from Christmas and I feel like it makes my bookshelf a little bit more like me (as i have a weird owl obsession). Also being a fan of Cassandra Clare’s books I thought that it would be nice to put my Clockwork Angel necklace before I wear it. 

Number 4: Mockingjay Pins

Although the MockingJay pins are on my TBR (To Be Read) Shelf not with my the Hunger Games books, I like the addition they add to my shelf as they show that I am a fan of the Hunger Games and make my shelf just that little bit more interesting. 

Number 3: An audiobook

Most of the time, I am a physical book reader but I don’t mind reading eBooks but I mainly have the audiobook there to force myself to listen to it as I have had in for over a year but I have not listened to it yet. 

Number 2: A butter beer cup with bookmarks

After going to the Harry Potter studio tour, I was left with a butterbeer cup and I had nowhere to put my bookmarks so I put the two together and I think that it makes a nice addition on my bookshelf. 

Number 1: A coaster

I have a coffee addiction that my bookshelf even can’t avoid. The coaster prevents any damage to my bookshelf as I like to drink coffee and read books also looks nice on my bookshelf.

Honourable Mentions:

-      More Books- It’s fair to say that I have a book buying addiction and I need to stop buying books as I now have too many that they are now on the top of my bookshelf.
-      A Hufflepuff badge- I class myself as a Hufflepuff and it is fair to say I am proud about it so it has it on my bookshelf. I got it with the butterbeer cup at the Harry Potter studio tour.
-      A “the book was better” badge- As the saying goes the book is better than the movie apart from some exceptions hence why it is on my bookshelf.

What is on your bookshelf that aren’t books? Let me know in the comments below.

See you soon,

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
