If you read… then you should read… 👀 📚

Hello, dearies! 

I know, it has been some time since I published a new one, and this one not even a review? The horror! 

I have been working in my mundane job, and my reading has been the lowest in months. I am supposed to be reading The Brightest Night (which I have loved so far) but I stopped before half of it was over because I want a clearer mind to pay attention to it, so you might say that I am in a reading slump. Nothing to do with my last read, I love the Origin and Lux world.

Probably.

Hello, dearies! As I mentioned before, Smashwords is having a week of deals for eBooks, you can find from 25% to 100% off so don’t be afraid to stop by it and take a look at the authors there, some like myself are self-published, and it’s a great place to let your stories be known.

Now, I found these titles that I think might be of interest to you, well, I thought that I could add them to my never-ending TBR list but that’s me. Check them out. (If you want any, you can click on the title for it and you’ll be directed to the site).

Couples to Idealise 💞

That day when people starts sending hearts and flowers, and gifts chocolates is coming up, what is it called again? Oh, yeah! Valentine’s Day, so let’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 I’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.

Izzy Lightwood

Total Badass chick and Shadowhunter warrior.

Names: Isabelle Lightwood. Izzy. Iz. 

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 didn’t like very much at first.

Jack

Hello, dearies! This is Sela here, and I’m giving in, I’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 don’t want to know like this is my warning that there are spoilers ahead. 👀

First Reads during the New Year 📚

🎉🎈Happy 2021 🎉🎈

Hello, dearies! I hope your New Year’s holiday was full of light and safety. It seems that’s what we’re wishing these days, but that’s life during pandemics.

Did you read a lot? I started reading (again… *cough* again a second time) The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon, aka Outlander 5 and I want to finish this want, but it’s long, and I haven’t had the focus to really enjoyed, I started in December but didn’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, I’m still reading it, though I’d had a few good laughs, it’s completely different from TFC, I don’t know if you watched the movie (I have, a couple of times) but I’m reading Confessions of a Shopaholic, and it’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 it’s in the movie, but I am not reviewing right now, I was telling a story of what I’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, I’m more afraid than anything else to read because I feel like I’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, I’m leaving the list of these 4 next, in case you want to add them to your own list.

Special Thank you Note

Hello, dearies! Guess what? I have made it to 100 followers, I know what you’re thinking, 100? So what? Well, for me it’s a milestone, and I never gave much thought to those numbers, the number of people following the blog. I do this because I love writing and I love books, and talking about them seemed like a pretty good idea, but I appreciate all the same that all of you took the time to hit that follow button.

100 follows

It has not been easy to keep up the blog, and if I didn’t have a muggle job, I don’t think I would be able to maintain it much, but here we are, and I hope you will continue to follow this journey with me. That’s it. 😄

💖Thank you from the bottom of my heart. 💖
