Cloudbusting!
β›…
we made an impromptu stop at @yspsculpture to see the norman ackroyd exhibition on the way back from granny's. little m was more interested in the giant puddle though. #whpnaturallight .

We had such a good time at the @barristersbookchamber on saturday. the bookshop was decked out in full festive style and it was lovely to meet laura (who runs the instagram account) & angela, the owner. πŸŽ„
it was really tricky to choose a photo for this post because every room was a treat 😍 it's hard to believe that the shop has only been open for 18 months and more developments are planned so keep an eye on their account.
πŸŽ„
if you fancy visiting they've turned their former bookshop into self-catering accommodation. you can even try your hand at bookselling if you like. i've posted details &more photos on our blog (see profile link). we're definitely going to give it a go!

Every year we wish for piles of books under the christmas tree and the lovely bookstack santa has granted our wish once again ✨ saying that there's always room for a few more...
πŸŽ…
dear santa - if you're still reading, i would really like wundersmith by @digressica and the seven deaths of evelyn hardcastle by stuart turton. al is wishing for a village christmas by laurie lee, killing commendatore by haruki murakami & the buried giant by kazuo ishiguro. and for little m - the christmasaurus by @tomfletcher pretty please.
πŸŽ„
what reads do you have on your xmas list? #whplayers .

There's only one way to end a birthday weekend and that's to go on a bookish adventure!
✨
we rarely share this corner of our hallway because it contains a pretty special wardrobe. most of the time it's filled with coats, shoes and scarves but occasionally, we open the door and find something else...
✨
to prepare for our journey we've put on our warm clothes and taken a bunch of narnia books - just in case. i hope we'll be back in time for tea but if not we wanted to say a big thanks for all your kind birthday wishes yesterday. we appreciate every single one and have shared them with little m πŸ’— xxx

I'm rubbish at baking edible (or not in my case) cakes so i decided to make a giant bookish one for little m's 6th birthday instead. as you can see it's gone down pretty well and she's already started to chomp her way through the pages πŸŽ‚have a wonderful day little bookworm - may all your stories end happily! ❀️ #whpsquares .

I'm part of many communities - real and virtual but #bookstagram holds a special place in my heart. it's introduced me to books and people from all over the planet, given me the courage to change my life and encouraged me to make these weird bookish pictures! long may this welcoming corner of the internet exist ❀️ #whpcommunity .

Trapped in a book-time continuum!
i'm playing catch-up here as i've landed a short transcription project just in time to make some christmas pennies and it's taking up all my spare moments.
.
i've been posting photos from our trip to @scarthinbooks on stories & igtv throughout this week after spending almost half a day there on sunday. this quirky bookstore really is a special place and i'm always thankful that it's survived this long. we hope to visit at least one more bookshop before christmas - if not two. which one do you think we should visit next?

#ad as soon as the mist descends in the woods and the days darken, i find myself drawn to fantasy - both on screen and on paper. there's nothing i enjoy more than getting completely lost in other worlds so when i saw that kingdom of ash, the final book in the throne of glass series by @therealsjmaas had been published, i knew i was ready to go on that epic journey.
πŸ—‘οΈ
and what a trip it's been so far! i've nearly finished crown of midnight, the third book (there are eight in total), and am trying to slow down a little to enjoy the experience.  although it's technically ya, it's at the upper end combining fast-moving plot with dark themes and the main character, assassin celaena sardothien has a compelling story.  i know that these won't be for everyone, but they're already a hit in our magic-loving family. al's mum has asked to borrow all the books after devouring one of them in 24 hours (see stories) and my mum is lined up after her. i'd better get reading!

The temperature has dropped here so we're snuggling up under our duvets with a few good books. i'm not sure if little m is too keen on the idea though!
.
happily, we've a hit jackpot with our #currentreads. al is enjoying the diary of a bookseller by shaun bythell, little m is getting back into her greatest magical stories and i'm loving throne of glass by @therealsjmaas πŸ‘Œ

Little m has been very busy this halloween. a few days ago she turned into a pumpkin then she became ensnared by a giant spider (see @onfrolic to view a scene from this terrifying tale) and now she's helping mr bones to assemble his spooky tbr pile πŸŽƒ she'll be ready for a big rest after she's finished trick or treating! happy halloween everyone!

I found this strange fruit reading the strange case of dr jekyll and mr hyde on the patio this morning and quickly shooed it away. weirdly i haven't seen al or little m since. let me know if you spot them #whpdressup .
