So a while back, the amazing Lauren of Bookworm Boutique reached 100k (yes, you’ve read that right, one hundred thousand!) followers and of course – because, amazing prices, obviously – I entered.
Quite honestly, I didn’t really expect much of it (because 100k, duh) so imagine my surprise when a couple of weeks later, I got a notification that I actually had won – there were three ‘prize packs’, and I got to receive the A Few of My Favourite Fandoms one!
And of course, now that everything has arrived, I couldn’t help but write a post / haul / review / ohmygoshlookhowcute-thingy on everything that was included in the pack!
To keep things simple, I’ve just copied the list as it was included in the giveaway post itself, and I’ll add in the pics and any comments I might have 🙂
I’ve been eyeing Me Before You ever since it came out, but I never got around to purchasing it – now, with the movie out, I felt like I might as well use this opportunity to finally get my hands on it!
As for The Last Time We Say Goodbye, it had been on my TheBookDepository wishlist for so long, I just had to get it! (and yes, I do realise neither of these books are necessarily the most happy of choices, but hey, I’ve been wanting to read them forever, okay? 🙂 )
- Set of Aureate + Argent bookmarks
I mean, these are just gorgeous – I’m a sucker for the white-gold-black combination, the quotes are so true and just uh – only problem? I kinda don’t actually want to use them because they’re too beautiful and I don’t want to ruin them 😮 Oops?
|“Please Go Away I’m Reading”
So, obviously, I didn’t end up going for the pouch 🙂
But, I mean, come on, this mug is basically more ‘me’ than even I am! (also, I now feel the distinct need to also get that printed on the pouch, as well as a baseball cap, a shirt, a dress and a backpack – just to make sure the message really comes across!)
- Harry Potter “My other ride is a firebolt” key chain by @amandajanedesigns
|“My Other Ride is a Firebolt”
So not only is this key chain absolutely adorable – it’s Harry Potter related (potterhead over here, might I remind you 🙂 ) and I just love it so much – and I’m also definitely planning on getting people something like this for any upcoming birthday- and holiday presents!
- Lady Midnight, Six of Crows, An Ember in the Ashes, and Harry Potter bookmarks fromBehind_ThePages
I don’t think I need to explain to you people how gorgeous these are! I especially love the flip side of An Ember in the Ashes – it has these gorgeous little ’ember-like’ thingies on it that just give it that much more of an ‘oomph’, as well as the quote on the backside of the Harry Potter-bookmark.
(also, the colour combo’s on these are so gorgeous!)
- Deathly Hallows House on Mug or Tote from FictionTea’s Store
Let me just start out by repeating: Potterhead over here! As soon as I got this bag, I started using it – it’s so practical (it even fits my course notes!), it’s gorgeous, the straps are wide enough to actually not hurt my shoulder (which, lets face it, happens too often) and the print – the print!
I’m in love!
As might have caught your attention as you were reading my other blogs: I’m kind of addicted to stationary – not necessarily to use it, I just like having it. All of it. And this one is just such a beautiful addition to my collection!
So this is problematic: I don’t actually know which one I should use, this gorgeous tote bag, or the one with the Deathly Hallows-sign on the front. I don’t need that much stuff! But I want to carry them both! At all times!
#firstworldproblems – right?
As far as perfect timing goes: the arrival of this one was it – with summer started I’m going to be at camps, travelling and back at college for my one retake – and this is exactly what I needed to make sure I have all my essentials on me at all times!
- 6x Fandom Stickers (1/2/3/4/5/6)
So, while my favourites of these are definitely the Harry Potter one (Prongs!) and the LOTR-one, my heart has a week spot for the burger (because, well, reasons…) and I really kinda just love all of them – yet another thing I probably won’t be able to actually use for its intended purpose because of ‘but it’s so pretty!’ – oh well… 🙂
This is the only thing I’m still waiting on – very anxiously I might add! I’ll add in a pic when I’ve gotten this one 🙂
I may or may not have actually squealed when I saw these – they are so adorable! I love everything by Out of Print, so this prize was definitely one of the biggest perks for me, and I love them.
Plus: now I finally have some cute socks to participate in Sock Sunday on Instagram some time!
- Game of Thrones – Drogon Pop! Vinyl Figure
I feel like I have to admit something here – namely that I’ve never actually watched Game of Thrones…
*waits for unbelieving shouting to stop*
That being said, I love dragons (main reason I started out loving fantasy so much) so this little dragon/drogon has already received its place of honour on one of my shelves!
- Book Dragon and Feather Magnetic Bookmarks from 1107StudioStore
So I honestly don’t know anybody that doesn’t love magnetic bookmarks – and did you even see how absolutely freaking adorable that little Book Dragon is??
(Also, that feather matches perfectly with one of my all time favourite bookmarks and just like that one, I’ll probably end up never using these two bookmarks because they’re just too cute and I don’t want to risk ruining them!)
So there you have it, that’s all the prizes that were included in the giveaway! I just want to end this post with a HUGE thank you to Lauren from Bookworm Boutique for setting this up, as well as to all the people who ‘donated’ prizes – a majority of whom, by the way, also included really nice cards with their prizes!
I seriously had so much fun coming home each week to find yet another package with these prizes in them, and I definitely love all of them!
