Jack

Jack, he is the first character you meet in the story and well, you want to smack him over the head, for real, he got on my nerves for many chapters, in fact, I think I didn’t like him that much until book 2 (Triad), and by Pantheon (the third book) as I mentioned, then I said, alright Jack, you’re good.

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. 💖

Halloween Song Book Tag – ReTag?

A book tag? That’s right, I did one of this and maybe another one is coming too. Halloween Song Book Tag. Enjoy.

Hello, dearies! As you might know from previous lists and posts, I don’t usually do this kind of post, but I thought that for Halloween I should try, though I don’t know how it will since when asked questions like these ones, I usually go blank and forget all the books I have ever read, lol, I know.

I’ll give it my best, so here we go. This tag was a tag from Riddhi at Whispering Stories, but the original was first seen on a video. That’s enough rambling, starting for real now.

7 Horror, Mystery Books that could be interesting

I’m not a big fan of mystery, horror, and that sort of books but there are a few that could persuade me to read them, and I wanted to share them here, given, most would because I have seen a movie related to it and I already know more or less what it would be like.
