His Dark Materials Trilogy

Author: Philip Pullman

Genre: Fantasy, High Fantasy, Science Fantasy

So Fantasy, yes.

I read these books a long time ago so bear with me.

The main thing I always remember about His Dark Materials books is that I found them utterly fascinating and I could not stop reading after finishing the first one, the second and third had to be read and they were far more exciting than the Northern Lights. I’m not going to go into it book by book but probably jump around between the three, I hope you are ready.

We Need to Talk about GOT: Finale

So this is the year of endings, apparently. Shadowhunters TV, The Big Bang Theory, Endgame. I am sure others as well but those are at the top of my mind, and nothing like last Sunday’s GOT Finale, which could not be farther from what I was expecting yet it did not disappoint me in one thing: I was not expecting more than what it happened.

If you thought this would be a complete happy and tearful one, then you are in for a treat. I will not trash it, much. I think. As usual if you have not watched yet and have not read the books, or the last book published A Dance with Dragons, then stop here for the night is dark and full of spoilers.

The Fiercest Joy

Author: Shana Abé

Book 3 in The Sweetest Dark Trilogy. And book 8 in the Drakon world. Probably the numbers will change if Shana decides to write extra books about this story, this wonderful world she has created cannot be described in mundane words, it is too wonderful and so full of magic but I will do my best to convince you.

If you have read my previous post about these series (The Sweetest Dark) then you might be prepared for what it is coming now. It is all about the magic, and the drakon; it might be short but it will be sincere. Here it is.

Lord of Shadows Review

I will first give you, the unedited review, this is what I felt and thought when I first finished the book. Be wary, it contains so many spoilers you will have to jump to the end of it, where I said it is good and nothing else, if you do not want to know what happens at the end of the book. You have been warned.

Outlander & Dragonfly in Amber “Review”

Author: Diana Gabaldon

Where to start? I like them enough, but I had already watched the first 2 seasons of the show, and I must say they are pretty similar to the books, I could easily picture Sam Heugham and Caitriona Balfe while reading, although Jamie is much taller in the books.

Brianna and Roger on the other hand, are nothing like in the books, sorry for the actor and actress who portray them, but they did not work for me, at the moment.

Lady Midnight

Do I need to say is by Cassandra Clare? You probably already know that, but there I said it. Now, I might have to warn you that this review: could contain some minor spoilers, that I might talk a lot about Julian Blackthorn, and that I freaking loved it! Even more so than the other 10, I was as surprised as anyone else, because I love TMI and Clockwork Princess became one of my favorite books, but Lady Midnight was just too F**king Awesome!

And I know you will enter my chaotic thought process… thank you for being here. What you are about to read has some minor spoilers and it was written during and shortly after I read LM.

Clockwork Angel… short review

Author: Cassandra Clare

I should really wait until I finish all three books, which is what I was going to do before writing this. Oh! Well, I am doing it right now.

Have you read The Mortal Instruments? I hope you have, because they are so completely awesome, but this is about what happened before Clary, Jace, the Lightwoods, and Simon all got together to save the world.

The Sweetest Dark Books

By Shana Abé

Well hello readers! Here we are again. Another book or books, another post full of my inner thoughts.

If you are a regular to Books Everywhere, then you might know Ms. Shana Abé, author of the Drákon Series and many other books. The Drákon Series is by far one of my favourite stories, and of course Shana is one of my absolute favourite authors, since she is one of the few who actually makes me read descriptions and pay attention to the little things in a book (although I know I’ve said that I don’t) because if you don’t know those details, then you end up completely lost and have to go back a chapter or two and find out what truly happened.

But enough of that, you are reading this because you want a new book to read or you love these two in The Sweetest Dark Series. Let us begin.
