This is the photo for day 5 of @bookboxclub #photochallenge with the prompt selfie in October Beanie. * * I feel so lucky to have this beach just a five minute walk from my house. I love going for a walk along the beach and watching the waves crash against the shore, there is something so therapeutic about that. * * I really love this Narnia inspired beanie by @bookboxclub which keeps me nice and cosy, perfect for this colder weather. * * QOTD: what do you prefer walks in the forest or on the beach? * * AOTD: I really love both as forests can be so magical and yet the sea can be so alluring and I love the sound of waves crashing against the shore. I think part of me would love to be a mermaid so the sea would probably be my favourite if I had to choose as it always calls out to me (maybe it’s an Aquarian thing as well 😂). * * Time to catch up on #bookishtags the lovely @lifecatsandbookchats tagged me in #top5bookishfears #booktag * 💔loosing a book somewhere 💔 spilling food or drink on a book 💔 lending a book to someone and it returns damaged 💔 ripped pages 💔 favourite character dies 😭 * * I have tagged some great bookstagrammers check out their page and send them some ❤️ * * #bookboxclub #bbclubphoto18 #beanie #narnia #chroniclesofnarnia #couragedearheart #bythesea #beach #waves #bookboxsubscription #booksubscriptionbox #voyageofthedawntreader
