Couples to Idealise ๐Ÿ’ž

That day when people starts sending hearts and flowers, and gifts chocolates is coming up, what is it called again? Oh, yeah! Valentineโ€™s Day, so letโ€™s talk about all those couples that we (Me) love and could idealise from books, and boy, do I have a bunch, I will try to keep it short. 

If you ever read any of the books Iโ€™m about to mention and know these couples then you are in for a treat and would love to have a relationship like these, though most did not start out good, they end up with a happy tone, so you might find some spoilers. Warning set.

Confessions of a Shopaholic

Author: Sophie Kinsella

That was not what I was expecting one bit. This is what happens when you read a book after you have watched the movie so many times that you almost now the dialogues of it.ย 

But this does not mean I didn’t enjoy it. I quite liked this book if not loved, it made me laugh and seeing how Rebecca Bloomwood made excuses after excuses to buy anything was unbelievable. I suppose that is really how a shopaholic would be.ย 

Some spoilers might be ahead, be wary.

Izzy Lightwood

Total Badass chick and Shadowhunter warrior.

Names: Isabelle Lightwood. Izzy. Iz.ย 

Will not talk about Emeurade Tobias, awesome girl who portrayed her on Shadowhunters TV, mostly because Izzy’s story on the show was so completely weird, and twisted at various points, they changed the character.

But in the books? Warrior. A great role-model. Funny. Compassionate. Passionate. Hot. I mean, Izzy is one of the first characters you fall for in the books, even before, Alec and Jace, or Clary, who I didnโ€™t like very much at first.ย

Jack

Hello, dearies! This is Sela here, and Iโ€™m giving in, Iโ€™m dedicating one to Jack from The Idhun Chronicles because when I re-read Pantheon (the third book), I realized that he had his moments. 

And I have been asked about Victoria and Kirtash, and Jack, though I am not going to answer that spoiler-full question, but I am going to talk about Jack and some important facts from the books, so you might as well stop right now if you donโ€™t want to know like this is my warning that there are spoilers ahead. ๐Ÿ‘€

First Reads during the New Year ๐Ÿ“š

๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽˆHappy 2021 ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽˆ

Hello, dearies! I hope your New Yearโ€™s holiday was full of light and safety. It seems thatโ€™s what weโ€™re wishing these days, but thatโ€™s life during pandemics.

Did you read a lot? I started reading (againโ€ฆ *cough* again a second time) The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon, aka Outlander 5 and I want to finish this want, but itโ€™s long, and I havenโ€™t had the focus to really enjoyed, I started in December but didnโ€™t continue because there were too many distractions, family and work and you know the drill, the mundane who would not let you sit down and enjoy the book. So, I started a secondary book that ought to be shorter and quicker, and well, Iโ€™m still reading it, though Iโ€™d had a few good laughs, itโ€™s completely different from TFC, I donโ€™t know if you watched the movie (I have, a couple of times) but Iโ€™m reading Confessions of a Shopaholic, and itโ€™s quite funny to see how Rebbeca finds excuses in the oddest most absurd ways to buy something, which I suppose is the point but in the book is so much in your face then itโ€™s in the movie, but I am not reviewing right now, I was telling a story of what Iโ€™m reading, and those are the two on my phone. As for paperbacks, I have The Red Scrolls of Magic, Magnus and Alec from the Shadowhunters world, which I really, really want to read but I also want to concentrate on it. And I have a hardcover, The Brightest Night, this one, Iโ€™m more afraid than anything else to read because I feel like Iโ€™m going to be absorbed completely, and also I may cry and laugh in equal amounts.

But those are the ones I have at the top of the TBR, Iโ€™m leaving the list of these 4 next, in case you want to add them to your own list.ย

A Rose in Winter

Author: Shana Abe

Genres: Historical, Romance, European Literature, Fiction, Adult

The great thing about Shana Abeโ€™s books, is that in the end, you end up liking them, in some way or another. Of course, nothing compares to The Drakon Series, which I still believe to be greatest ones Iโ€™ve read by her, next to The Sweetest Dark books, but A Rose in Winter had me from ugh to ooh to aww to wow, I did not give it 5 stars because there was not that total awesome and abandonment into it that had drawn me to other books, but I enjoyed it enough, and if you brave it out through the middle of it, then youโ€™re good at the end, it was a nice ending and there a plot twist here and there that I didnโ€™t expect.

Oh, the main characterโ€™s name is Damon, so, of course, I had to go on reading until I knew how it all ended.

This one is quite short since I just thought to share with you guys this rather quick read I had, I mean according to my ebook reader, it took me about 9 hours to finish the book, and that divided in several days, which mean I could have finished the book in a day if I had had the time to do as much.Thatโ€™s it for now. I hope you found a new book to read. You can read the description here.

Idhun’s Memories 3: Panteรณn

Trilogy: Idhรบn’s Memories (The Idhun Chronicles)

Author: Laura Gallego

I’m doing this one because it felt in some parts like I was reading it for the first time.

And I completely blocked out 2 facts in this book or so it seems, it was so real for me that A died, at first I was perplexed that that fact was out of my mind for so long.

So, let’s do this once more, and I apologise beforehand because I know these books are in Spanish and some of you might not be able to read them yet, still, I wanted to share.
