Top 5 Thursday: Books that have personal meaning to me

Everytime I read a book it means something to me, I’ll probably remember something about it forever, but these books are different, these books mean special things to me, personal things.

I can’t choose only one book out of this series, I always loved them all. When I was a kid, my godmother used to give me tons of books, she thought every ocasion was good to give a book, I remember that she gave the first ones when I didn’t even knew how to read. Geronimo Stilton was the series that marked my childhood the most.

Geronimo Stilton was and still is a big part of my life, I own 15 books and also some movies. I don’t quite know why this was such an important thing on my childhood, I devored those books, I believe they were the first books I read about mystery and crime solving. Today I consider it to be the series that got me into reading.

 

  • Harry Potter and The Order Of The Phoenix: Goodreads

I’ll admit it, please don’t throw rocks at me, I read Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire before I read the rest, actually I’m reading them in order now.

There I was, a 12 year old girl spending some days on her uncle’s house, with a 800 pages book on her hands, excited like hell to read it. I read this book in 4 days and as soon as I finished it, I started rereading it.

Everytime I am feelling down I reread this book or the one that is bellow this one. Harry Potter and The Order Of The Phoenix still is, to this day, my favourite Harry Potter book and I believe it is going to keep like this.

 

4.12 stars of rating on goodreads, pretty good, but not enough, this book deserves all the starts for a simple reason: it has the character that everyone in the book community was waiting to read about.

Cath is like us, a fangirl, she reads, she writes and she is considered one of the most relatable characters I have ever read about. Fangirl has different and unique characters.

Relatablility is the thing that puts this book in this list, every time I read Fangirl it speaks to me in a very magical way, I can, without even trying, to place myself in Cath’s place.

 

I read this book in an afternoon, it was the fastest book I read in my life, I loved every single sentence of it and I will read it and recommend it and quote it to anyone who believes gender inequality is a non-existent thing. *Mr.whompa loompa, president of USA*.

Because of this book you can see that in my blog’s sidebar, specifically on my Get To Know Me text, I consider myself a feminist and I’ve been doing it since I read this book, it doesn’t mean I wasn’t a feminist before, I just started calling myself a feminist then because I realized that it was a bigger issue than i thought.

This book made me the activist that I am today, last year, in the same class, I managed to make a public speaking about Gender Equality ( in which a got 20/20) and a essay about environment, two things that I am really passionate about.

 

I finished reading this amazing book in June 18th, I created this blog a couple of days after it. This was the book that got me into blogging.

None of my friends reads fantasy, most of them are into contemporary and romance so when I finished acomaf I had an urge to talk to someone about it, it was he best book I read this year and the feelings that it left me with were taking over my life. Therefore I created High Lady’s Library which now is big part of my life.

Bookish Gifts

Do you need to give a present to a bookworm? Are you a bookworm and you don’t know what bookish item should you buy for yourself? Don’t worry, I’ve got your back. Today I will be listing some of the best gifts you can give to a book lover.

candles

90% of the book community has the desire of buying bookish candles, me included. But we all know that some of us can’t aford to buy candles for more than $3, so I guess that a candle would be an awesome ideia for someone that has a few or even none.

The internet is floating with candle companys but here are some of the ones I most appreciate, for the hype and for the good looking candles, I can’t tell you about the smell because I don’t own any bookish candles.

By the way, if I ever buy a bookish candle is going to be from this store, I am completly in love with their candles. 😍 And they actuallly are not that pricey, each of them costs $8.

bookmarks.PNG

You have no ideia, or maybe you have, of the horror of buying a book and leaving the bookstore to find that inside that book there is not a matching bookmark. I have many bookmarks, but I love matching the book with the bookmark.

Recently, I’ve found many awesome bookmarks shops, here are my favourites:

Look at the little Feyre and Rhysand, this store has the cutest magnetic bookmarks.

I am a hardcore fan of booktube, that means I’ve seen many subscription box’s unboxings, and one of the coolest things they recieve on that boxes is prints. I love prints, expeacially the ones that portrait ACOTAR characters.

Here are some of my favourite stores and a different way you can get prints if you don’t have enough money to buy them.

Evie Bookish does not only design prints but also mugs, bookmarks, phone cases, tote bags, t-shirts and many other things that you can find on her society 6 page linked above.

This designer sells many things besides prints, but the prints are the thing that is been getting a lot of hype recently, most of them are, of course, from the Acotar series by Sarah J. Maas.

  • Get the actual prints online : 

I know this may sound kind of stupid but you can actually print them at home, it is bad because the designer doesn’t get the money, but you print them in nice and strong paper and it’s ready to go.

I have a collection called “Books” on weheartit.com dedicated to books, there you can find various prints from various books:

funko pops.PNG

Funko pops ( instagram // twitter // website) are one of the cutest things ever, but the thing is they are really expensive, so if you don’t mind spending this kind of money on a present, I promise you that the person you give the funko to will love it.

There are more bookish presents than these but these are the ones that I know most of the book community will like.
