These are my top 5 Fictional Places that I would love to visit !
I’m not sure if there is anyone who wouldn’t want to visit the school if witchcraft and wizardry! Imagine walking the halls, talking to the paintings and learning all about magic!
2. The Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory
A whole factory dedicated to chocolate ! A chocolate river and oompa loompa’s singing, what more could you want.
3. The Emerald City
I would love to be able to visit the Emerald City from the book Wicked by Gregory Maguire. Be able to meet all the citizens of Oz and maybe even the wicked witch and the Good witch themselves!
To be able to walk through Neverland with the Lost boys, to fly with Tinkerbells fairy dust and fight off Captain Hook with Peter Pan.
Visit wonderland with Alice and enjoy a tea party with the Mad Hatter. Meet the Cheshire cat and talk to the mighty dormouse. To travel throughout wonderland with all these famous character and fend if the Queen of Hearts and her army!
Many thanks, Caitlin x

“You should never judge a book by its cover”
This is a common statement heard in many different contexts however I think in the context of literal books it isn’t quite like that. I believe that unless you are sent random books or buy one with the cover hidden we always judge a book by its cover.
I think that book covers are a major factor when picking a new book. It can greatly influence your choice. If it is aesthetically pleasing then you are more likely to choose that book. I am personally guilty of doing such a thing and I do feel as though this is the wrong thing to do but I just can’t help it. I believe that book subscriptions have really broadened my choices and changed my mind slightly about this. I have received books that I wouldn’t normally choose based off the cover and this has shown me that the cover doesn’t equate to the book.
I also think that when it comes to series it affects your judgment. One of my reaiding pet peeves is when they change the covers of series throughout and therefor they do not match. I will buy the first few in a series then they will change the theme. As I am a bit of a perfectionist it really annoys me as they don’t all look the same 😊. I am aware that this is completely irrelevant to the story but I thought I would just share it. Maybe this annoys you too!
Overall, I would agree that we shouldn’t judge a cover by its book but it’s so hard not to. I also feel as though sometimes the cover doesn’t match the book. I am also aware that this isn’t always the fault of the authors so I feel that more people should understand this !
Many thanks, Caitlin x
