So I finally got around to reading Esther Earl’s book. I started at 11.30am, and I finished at around 5.30pm. Yikes.
I should have spread it out over a few days, but once I got started, I couldn’t put it down, even when the crying started.
So yeah, so I’m sat here now wringing out my shirt, and…

Thanks for sharing—now go out and be awesome <3

I couldn’t find any wallpapers for my favorite non-profit organization… So I made some! You can find extra high-resolution versions on my Deviantart! I’d love it if you’d use them!

Rita Skeeter doesn’t get it. Love doesn’t have to be a tabloid headline. Love doesn’t even have to be romantic. 
In Harry Potter, platonic love saves the wizarding world. Mothers put their lives on the line. Teachers protect their students at all costs. Friends live and die for friends.
Harry loves Hermione. Hermione loves Harry. Their friendship is powerful. Their friendship is important. Their friendship is not scandalous.
It doesn’t have to be.
On Esther Day, we celebrate family, friendship, and love. Learn more and join us as we count down to August 3rd.

Esther Day is August 3. Don’t forget, you can submit a message of love right here. 

Don&#8217;t wait!  Celebrate Esther Day right now by telling someone you love them &lt;3

I’m not sure if you guys know this but The Fault in Our Stars came out in cinema’s this Thursday in Australia *text drips with sarcasm*

Logically, I should review the book version of TFIOS but screw that - I don’t play by your rules! I’m actually…

Love this review from an Australian reader :)  ”Esther herself liked to see the flaws in the things she loved so that she could love it completely even when it wasn’t perfect.”

Help my friend Maddie raise money for TSWGO! 
In August, shortly after Leakycon, I’m shaving my friend Maddie’s head. In the weeks leading to August, Maddie is raising money for This Star Won’t Go Out, an charity that helps families who have a child with cancer that was founded in the memory of our dear friend Esther.
Maddie’s wanted to shave her head for ages, and she’ll be doing it regardless of what we earn, but this is a great chance to give to an amazing organization. She’ll be donating her hair as well. I hope you guys consider giving!
I’m making little crocheted star plushies for the campaign, if you want one of those!
Click here (or the picture above) to donate.

Yay Maddie!  You are so awesome &lt;3
