Love-a-thon 2015. Snapshots.

BANNER - 2015 LOVEATHON
Hosted by Alexa from http://www.alexalovesbooks.com
This mini-challenge is about bookish pictures! I use my Instagram to post pictures of the books I'm currently reading or the ones I recently bought. Scattered throughout my account you might find snippets of my life and past. You can find my IG over here: Mel_1704.

I am going to show you a different range of photo's, starting with a Books(h)elfie and proof I've been a reader for a very long time. Instead of walking with dolls I used my doll carriage as book trolley. I was also fond of comfortable reading spots, like sitting in our laundry basket.


Now some of my favorite books. (Do you get the clock reference to Tik Tok?)

A couple of my favorite editions. I recently got the HP scholastic box set & these are the Dutch covers for some of Neil Gaiman’s books.

And lastly, my favorite bookish mug, prettiest inside of a cover & my trusty e-reader, a Kobo Glo.

  4. I'm always surprised my parents have no pictures of me reading as a child, since its all I did. We have plenty from the last 10 years. Probably because people just didn't take pictures for regular things back when we had to worry about consuming film.

  21. Haha that's so cute that you used your trolley for books instead of a doll! And those Dutch covers for Neil Gaiman's books are beautiful! I usually don't like Dutch covers, but these...!

  22. That is indeed a cute a picture of you as a little kid! Your other pics are awesome as well. I particularly liked the Cruel Beauty pic and the Neil Gaiman Collection. I've been thinking of buying a new set of Harry Potter books, with a new design of covers, especially because mine don't match. I loved that picture of the inside part of a cover. Sooo beautiful!

  23. I love the picture of young-you reading! I wish I tracked down one of me like that. So cute. I love when people can share that they've been readers their whole lives. People always ask when I started reading or what books got me started, but really it's just been my whole life!

  24. You're gorgeous, your books are gorgeous and all these pictures are gorgeous!! I read at a super young age too but sadly I don't think there are actually any pictures of me doing so - what a precious memory! And of course, mad love for HP, DoG&M and Fairest :)

  25. Haha, I love that you decided to sit in the laundry basket to read. Little you was so cute. :) And I love the bookish pictures that you took, especially the one of Cruel Beauty. I have yet to read Cruel Beauty, but I might end up reading it because I love fairytale retellings.
