Horror at the Belgrade*: An Interview with the Writer of… Frankenstein?

Okay, so it’s not THE Mary Shelley herself of course, but the writer of the Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein theatre production, Rona Munro. As many of you may know, I am a massive Halloween fan and an avid reader (…also I’m a little bit of a goth!) I hope you enjoy this insightful interview with Rona, and it helps give a bit of context to the play, if you plan to see it!

*This post is written to support my local theatre in spreading the word about/ advertising their upcoming production of Frankenstein, at the Belgrade Theatre.

Tons of Japanese Snacks and A Whole World of Cute!

So I don’t normally write posts about stuff I’ve bought because often, well, I don’t buy things in bulk for no reason in a “haul” fashion. Most of the times I’ve been looking for Japanese snacks I’ve bought a JapanCrate or shopped at Tofu Cute when I’ve seen them at MCM Comic Con or something similar. I thought last week I’d check out their online store for the first time…

It was the most perfect mistake.

For the Love of Luna: 5 Reasons Luna Lovegood is the most Flawless Character in Harry Potter

If being a Ravenclaw means being more like Luna Lovegood, then count me in. That girl is literally the fictional manifestation of all I wished I could have been during school. There are so many moments where Luna is the most perfect character in the Harry Potter series and in true celebration of her birthday (February 13th) I thought I’d write a post about just how flawless she really is.

Muggle Musings: How Important is Love in the Harry Potter books?

Harry Potter Discussion Group Love Potions

At our monthly Harry Potter Discussion Group, we always come up with loads of brilliant theories and discussions centred around a particular theme in Harry Potter. I wanted to start to use some of this for my blog posts, because it’s always super interesting and I rarely share them!

Muggle Musings started in February of this year, and since then there have been so many brilliant insights and anecdotes I never would have thought of myself. I’ve already done a little highlights post about some of our more outrageous claims but I wanted to be more focused and show just how deep we delve into the books themselves!

The Perfect Witches Brew: Apple Pie Bubble Tea with Bubble Boba UK*

It’s no easy feat to cook up the perfect Witches Brew. Many of you will never master the exact art of creating the delicate concoction of flavours. It takes skill, finesse and just a dash of magic to create. That is why this witch took a trip to Bubble Boba Coventry, to get some tips from the master creators this Halloween! Get your grimoires at the ready and start taking notes, witches and warlocks!

Why Harry Potter is Incompetent: The Musings of Muggles

This month marked the 6th ever Muggle Musings (the Harry Potter Discussion Group I host)… and it’s been going well so far! During the last 6 meetings, we’ve discussed Harry Potter himself, Supporting Characters, Evil Characters, Magical Creatures, Hogwarts Teachers and Muggle-Wizard relations.

We come up with a million different theories about the wizarding world in every meeting and so I thought I’d pick out just a few of the highlights, seeing as it’s Harry Potter’s Birthday!
