I just finished Isla after binge reading Anna and Lola over the past three days (despite running around on holiday). It left me feeling quite odd. Definitely didn’t like it as much as the first two. I didn’t root for Isla and Josh like I rooted for Anna/Etienne and Lola/Cricket. The characters weren’t as three dimensional, and the central conflict didn’t feel quite as believable.

… But yay for cameos (and sex scenes that clearly mention use of condoms)

my first thought this morning was “count olaf should have been more thoroughly checked by social services”

This amazing street in London had so many stores selling signed first edition books. Apparently Harry Potters sell for over £900.

Today I went on a Harry Potter walking tour around London and had to stop myself from answering all the trivia questions asked by the guide to give other people a go
