Random News: Our Queen and Build Your Own Wizarding School

Hey Lovely Readers,

I apologize for the lack of reviews this week, but things are busy! So to hold you over I have some more Harry Potter themed things. The first is a great list of 11 things you might not know about Our Queen, JK Rowling! You can read that here. I liked finding out why she killed Hedwig, which always bothered me.

Another excited thing I have found is a site that has the blueprint for making your own Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You can find the link here. This is all made out of paper, that you cut and glue to make the school. At the bottom of the page there are also plans for a light up wand and a snitch. This looks like a fun way to pass the winter holiday! I have not built this myself, so I have no idea how long it would take. If any of you do this, send us pictures!

Until next time,

About Lynne

I am currently a PhD student of Forensic Psychology, which may explain the off mix of extremely morbid books sitting next to children’s books. Hailing from the Midwest in the United States of America, I have now lived in England for over 2 years (which will explain any strange grammar usage). From a very young age, my parents cultivated a love of reading, and never restricted what I read. When I reached middle school I began reading Shakespeare (a lifelong love affair), but had also discovered the wonders of young adult fiction. While the world may now expect me to read books more reflective of my age, I have fought this and am a strong supporter of the YA novel! Despite having very little free time, I still sets aside time for a reading every evening, and listens to books on my way to University. I dream of one day being a published novelist and published scientist!
