Exploring My Bookshelves (#34) – Companion Books

Exploring My Bookshelves is a weekly meme created over here at Addlepates and Book Nerds, and co-hosted with Shannon @ For the Love of Words. For more info on how it works, have a look here

This week, Shannon wants to know about…


Your Companion Books

As in, a book that explains another book you have, not by the same author.

wpid-20151009_114602.jpgI have two of these. One, Before Green Gables, I really enjoyed. It explains Anne’s life before she turns up at Green Gables. I don’t know if any of it is accurate, but it broke my heart for poor Anne.

The other one, The Magical World of Harry Potter, I haven’t read yet. I don’t know if I’ll really enjoy it; it explains where Rowling got a lot of her ideas from. I’m worried that’ll ruin the magic a little. But still, it’s sitting in my pile, so I guess we’ll see

Have you got any companion books? Have you read either of mine? What did you think?



I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out... I'm a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can't do make up to save myself, and you're more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!
