Summer Favourites with Lou Loves

Harry Potter:

The harry potter books and films are nothing new to me. They'd scatter my brother's bedroom floor and he'd always, always make me sit through them all. It's until now though, after years of my brother moving out that I've revisited this wicked and marvelous school of witchcraft and wizardry and introduced myself to the likes of Snape and Dumbledore yet again. This involved watching seven films in a matter of days but do you know what? It was, it was totally worth it.
 The Book Thief:

I have no idea how to express my love for this film through words..It's so captivating and deeply touching that I cannot express how much you must watch it. Without giving too much away, I can tell you that the film follows the life of Liesel Meminger, a nine-year-old German girl who was given up by her mother to live with foster parents in the small town of Molching in 1939, shortly before World War II and is narrated by death which is a big aspect of the story. I can't wait to read the book and see how it compares.


Sand:

Sand will never be a thing that I take for granted because quite frankly, it's hard to come across where I live. Whilst staying in a beach cottage in Cornwall a couple of weeks ago, surrounded by miles of sand and beach, I was really able to appreciate the splendour of such a simple thing. Glistening and sun kissed, as delicate as a feather.

Lauren Child:




I'm positively certain that I have talked about Lauren Child at length over my blog before but I'm truly obsessed with the way she illustrates. It's all so unique, so simple and so beautiful. I've recently been interested in her books too which showcase her trademark style.

Wishing you heath and happiness,
Marti xx

  7. Sand is soooo annoying to me hahaha But I have it at 15 minutes from my house, so I might be taking it for granted. I so agree with Harry Potter and The Book Thief!
