emily_m_tubb @MeganAnn @JulieAnn I got both in Primark 😄 they have got a great range of Harry Potter stuff at the moment 😄💕 4y
JulieAnn @emily_m_tubb Thank you! I‘ll have to look that up. Not sure what Primark is! 😃 4y
JulieAnn @emily_m_tubb Found it! The prices are so reasonable! Thank you again! I foresee a HP filled Christmas for my daughter (and me)! 4y
emily_m_tubb @JulieAnn Haha, I love Primark! It's where I shop most of the time 🤣 it's such a shame they don't have an online store 🙈 💕 4y
JulieAnn @emily_m_tubb Yeah. Just realized that. Of course there‘s not one near me. I‘ll just have to put it on my list of places to visit! 4y
laurieluna Hey! Hope you're keeping ok, haven't seen you around Litsy in a while! X 4y
emily_m_tubb @miralunasbooknook Oh I know 😣 life's a bit hectic and I got a bit overwhelmed 😕 hopefully things will start to calm down and I'll be back to myself in no time. Thank you for checking up on me 😄💕 How are you? Hope you are keeping well 😄💕 4y
laurieluna @emily_m_tubb I totally know those feels! Hoping things get back to normal for you soon, it's hard when things get overwhelming. Things are looking up here though. Feels a bit like coming out of fog. Take care ^_^ x 4y

Bank holiday Monday means a quick week and hump day comes along quicker! 😂
1. Spiders in the bath tub... how do they get there?! And why are they always huge?! 😂
2. Just finished watching Safe on Netflix... so nothing at the moment... suggestions welcome! 😁
3. Navy blue 💙

5. All of them! Top of my list is the tagged set ☝️

MinDea Yikes! Yes. We get them in our shower and bathroom a lot! I think it's the vents from the bathroom that go outside! 4y
MinDea What did you think of Safe? We just watched the trailer for it yesterday. I love Michael C Hall! 4y
emily_m_tubb @MinDea Spiders are little 8 legged ninjas! Haha 😂 Safe was amazing! Without giving anything away, it's full of twists and turns! I'd recommend it to everyone 😄 I preferred Michael C Hall in Safe to Dexter- even his English accent was ok 😂 4y

1. Done 😄
2. My mum likes reading, but I think I just liked reading from an early age because I was too shy to actually talk to people 😂
3. Early in the morning before work 🌇
4. Too many to remember- but my favourite book (my family and other animals) has a special place in my heart because Gerald Durrell must have had such a memorable childhood and grew up to do amazing things 😃

After a rubbish day, this is the best thing to come home to (well, to my parents house 🤣)
I bit the bullet and subscribed to a book box- I decided on Fairyloot because fantasy is my go-to genre... and the postage wasn't ridiculous 😂
Anyone else subscribe to fairyloot? (Don't worry, I won't post spoilers on here... but I will be posting them on my Instagram if anyone wants to have a look 😘)

laurieluna I actually just stopped subscribing, this was my last box! I loved a couple of things and they will come in really useful but some not so much. I've only read 2 of the 10 books I've received too so I have some catching up to do! May set a month aside purely for Fairyloot catch up. It is a great box though, I just think after 10 boxes it started to get repetative for me personally. X 4y
Sophoclessweetheart I‘ve had one fairyloot box, it‘s a beautiful box but as it‘s mostly YA and that‘s a genre I don‘t get on with very well I didn‘t continue to subscribe as half the items were for fandoms I don‘t like or have never read. X 4y
julesG Waiting for my box. Hopefully it gets here by next week. 4y

So, I've been a little less active on here for a little while... the loss of Moomin was heart breaking and I still miss him every day... I am by no means replacing him, but I decided to give these five little guys a loving home.The house is once again filled with little squeaks and I am happier 😊
So, left to right, we have- Chaucer, Orwell, Aesop, Virgil and Dickens 💖 Once settled and used to handling, they will feature more on Litsy and IG 💕

Hello lovely littens, could you please help me? 😄
I am looking for recommendations... I love fantasy/YA books, but I'm getting tired of them turning into long series... Do you know of any standalones or maybe completed duologies?
Thank you so much in advance 💖💖💖

Riveted_Reader_Melissa This is a complete Dueology 4y
julesG I'm afraid, I know lots of trilogies. 4y
julesG A dueology that's more YA/dystopia 4y
See All 57 Comments
julesG And I haven't had a look at what you've read already. This trilogy is also good 4y
ScorpioBookDreams This is a stand-alone 4y
ScorpioBookDreams Anything by Maggie Stiefvater too. The Raven Cycle is finished at four books or I love the Scorpio Races. 4y
mom2bugnbee is a trilogy, I believe. 4y
cathysaid While it's not technically YA, Rabbit Cake is narrated by a quirky 12-year-old named Elvis. Her mother has died and her family is falling apart, but Elvis brings some humorous and honest perspective to the events that follow. 4y
LibrarianRyan Standalone needs a sequel but says it's a standalone. 4y
ScorpioBookDreams This is an amazing trilogy 4y
Laalaleighh Anything by France‘s hardinge 4y
Laalaleighh That‘s mostly all I‘ve got off the top of my head. 4y
Laalaleighh @BooksTeasAndBookishThings any recommendations? 4y
BooksTeasAndBookishThings A short and fun duology I plan on revisiting often is 4y
BooksTeasAndBookishThings And the Grisha Trilogy also has a side duology with 4y
BooksTeasAndBookishThings You can read them alone, but better if you read the trilogy first. 4y
BooksTeasAndBookishThings @Laalaleighh I just discovered Holly Black so I will be adding that one to my list 😘 4y
Laalaleighh I also second rebel of the sands as a trilogy @ScorpioBookDreams in fact my bf that barely even reads just devoured it. 4y
ScorpioBookDreams @Laalaleighh that‘s brilliant! It was such a good series. 4y

I know it's now Thursday morning, but yesterday was a manic hump day 😣

1. This was my Easter egg this year... GIANT kinder egg... what could be better?! 😂
2. Spaceships, conspiracy, disease, teens 🤔
3. All 4 are still with me 😁
4. I used to love Pokemon- Misty especially 🐠
5. Capricorn 🐐

MinDea What is a kinder egg? Sorry yesterday was so rough! Hope the rest of the week is better! 4y
emily_m_tubb @MinDea Aww thanks 😄 A kinder egg is a hollow milk and white chocolate egg with a toy inside (rumours are they are banned in the US???) Usually they are chicken egg sized, but for Easter they released one which was sized like a normal Easter egg 😄💖 4y
MinDea I have never heard of that! Crazy? What kind of toy? 4y

julesG @MinDea Banned in the US. I've tried to smuggle them in several times and failed. I guess the guys at the customs office always gave a blast when someone like me does it. They'll eat them all. For Easter they can have the size of an ostrich egg. I'll take a picture of them in the supermarket later. 4y
julesG @MinDea PS: the toy is a small plastic thing you have to assemble yourself (3-5 pieces to stick together). Or there's a special edition and they contain a tiny collectable figurine. I still have trouble wrapping my mind around the fact that there's something us Europeans have but the people in the US can't buy in their shops. 😐 4y
MinDea @julesG this is fascinating and I would like pictures! @tricksytails might too! 🤣🤣🤣🤣 4y
MinDea Like Legos? Or .... I don't get the "assemble yourself". I need pictures ! 4y
TricksyTails Hope Thursday is a better day! 🤗 I, too, am very curious about these kinder eggs! I feel like I need them even more now that I know they‘re banned @MinDea @julesG 4y
emily_m_tubb @MinDea @TricksyTails @julesG Sorry, I left to drive to work and left you with all sorts of questions 😂😂😂 I got a figurine of Batgirl in this egg... I'll take a pic later 😄 I think they were banned because of the choking hazard? Don't quote me on that though haha. But considering the toy is in a bright orange plastic container, it's pretty clear you wouldn't want to eat it 😂 (I know little kids might though 🤔) 4y
julesG @emily_m_tubb Neither of my kids ever tried to swallow the plastic yolk inside. You're right about the choking hazard. (and now I have to get some Kinder Eggs today) 4y
TricksyTails Choking hazard! I‘ll be looking forward to your photo! How cool that there‘s a Batgirl in yours! 4y
emily_m_tubb @julesG I know- I never tried to eat the "yolk" and don't know if any others who would try ??? 4y
emily_m_tubb @TricksyTails Kinder have been doing superhero toys for a while- my brother-in-law has loads of them (iron man, the hulk, Thor, Spider-Man etc etc) I'll try to get a pic of his collection too 😂 4y
TricksyTails Oooh yes please!!! 4y
julesG Do you ever had a K.E. when they still had the container with two parts, not the 'flip top' one they have now? But those were also large enough to not be swallowed by my adult self. 4y
julesG Nor by my child-sized self. 😜 4y
julesG You have to be pretty dumb, even as a child, to try to eat this plastic container. 4y
emily_m_tubb @julesG Yeah, I remember they always had 2 parts... I've not had a small egg recently, so I haven't seen the flip top egg 😂 This giant one had two separate halves though... but that would definitely be a feat to swallow that!!! 😂😂 4y
emily_m_tubb @TricksyTails Its slightly different- the toy is actually inside the hollow egg over here... the Kinder joy egg is two separate halves so the toy isn't "hidden" in the food- and the egg in the US is filled with a creamy filling- ours aren't ? 4y
TricksyTails I want yours then! 😂 4y
MinDea Yes. We are on the hint here for them here! Hahaha @julesG @emily_m_tubb ! I think Canada might be my best bet. Are the large ones around only at Easter? 4y
emily_m_tubb @MinDea @TricksyTails @julesG I've just read you can get the "normal" kinder eggs on Canada and Mexico ? I've only seen the large ones at Easter ? 4y
FantasyChick I love Kinder eggs. They are still a must at Easter, and my kids are WAY too old for the tiny toy inside. @MinDea I'm in Canada and they have the large ones at Easter and pretty much every other big holiday. Well, Halloween, Xmas and Valentine's for sure. I usually end up smuggling some to my friends in the US with kids when I do swaps, the little ones though easier to hide. Shhhhh 😏 4y
emily_m_tubb I've never seen them on other holidays in the UK... 😣😣😣 I'm going to have to keep an eye out 😄😄😄 4y
Christine11 Kinder eggs are so good! 😊 4y
TricksyTails Do you see what you‘ve started @emily_m_tubb ? I‘m desperately trying to switch citizenship to get me some Kinder eggs! 🤣 4y
TricksyTails @FantasyChick Ooh! You‘ve been successful in smuggling them? I am so going to Canada next Easter! 😄 4y
emily_m_tubb @TricksyTails Aha! I've achieved my lifetime goal of becoming a trouble maker 😂😂😂 4y
TricksyTails Well played, friend! Well played! 👏😂 4y

6. One next me 📖
7. Sci-fi 🌌
8. I've never read Stephan King 😱
#saturdaynightspecial @Kaye

1. Chocolate hazelnuts 😍
2. I bought two Robin Hobb trilogies due to Litsy- Go big or go home 🙈
3. So many! Horses, cats, rabbits, rats, mice, dogs, pollen - basically the natural world wants to kill me! 😂
4. Somewhere in between - super organised at work, slightly haphazard at home 🤷‍♀️
5. Murder on the Orient Express- yes, I loved it 😄 (I don't go to the cinema often, so haven't seen any new films in ages!)

Ranchan @emily_m_tubb Crochet does the trick! Would need to look up the stitch though. 5y
emily_m_tubb @oOArankaOo oh yeah, that would work! I've made a crochet jellyfish before, so I'll look it up again! 😄 5y
AmyG That‘s amazing! 5y
CherryPie Excellent! 5y
julesG Gorgeous! And yes, crochet. There is also a knitting stitchpattern that gives you corkscrew curls, but you'd need thin yarn/thread and thin needles. I can look it up for you if you want. 5y
emily_m_tubb @AmyG @CherryPie Thank you 😄💖 5y
emily_m_tubb @julesG ooh, if you do have a link that will be very helpful! But don't worry too much if you can't find it 😊 Thank you so much 😄💖 5y
