So, Onyx. Do you know the Lux Series? This is book 2 in the series, I have talked a bit about them in the past, back when I first read them and loved them so much.

As I enjoyed doing one of small towns, I decided to go over to Europe and enjoy the scenery in the UK, not just London or Oxford, but other parts will count as well in this book challenge.
I have read a few books either by British authors or US authors that decided to set the book across seas, so I remembered that I have read some of those and let’s see if I can name a few.

“What are you out here for at this time of night?”
Hello, dearies! 📖
I feel like I don’t say that enough in the past few months. Hope you’re a returning book lover, who likes my blog, but if you’re new, welcome!
Today, I thought and thought about what to write for my next post, and realised that it has been a while since I did a book challenge, so here we are. What better way to show love for books the thinking through all the books you have read in life, and trying to remember the town they were set in, right? Wrong, it’s nerve-wracking because the more you think about it, the less the memories come to you.

Series: Harry Potter
Book #6: The Half-Blood Prince
Author: JK Rowling
Genre: YA, fantasy, magic, drama
I’ve been waiting to talk about this one.
Hello, dearies! ⚡
The Half-Blood Prince was not going to be this week’s Throwback Thursday, but here we are, TBT with this Potter book.
I love the whole Harry Potter saga, I think that’s clear after me taking the time to talk about each book, but The Half-Blood Prince made me re-read it a few times when it first came out, and it soon became a favourite book.
After reading it, I had to wait for The Deathly Hallows, so I had to keep going back to The Half-Blood Prince for more.
Let us begin. 🔮
I’ll jump right in, and perhaps go back and forward, so please be patient with my upcoming rambling.

Kon’nichiwa, dearies! ⭐️
I haven’t enjoyed an Anime in a while, but this one had me glued to the screen, and the best was that the second season had just aired this year, so I got to see both in one go, problem now is that I’ll have to wait for season 3. Or I can read the Light Novel and not wait for that, so I bought the first one, it’s waiting on my Kindle.
After saying that, let’s recap on Classroom of the Elite, an anime that makes you doubt everyone and start saying, repeatedly, don’t trust them.

Hello, dearies! 📙
This is not a book review.
Here we are again, another week, another throwback or flashback as it is, a Friday Flashback. Last week, I started this little section with a review (sort of) for The Bane Chronicles: Saving Raphael Santiago, which marked the first look into the past, and it was a TBT.
Now, this week I decided to go with a book that I loved in the past, and on the second round of reading it, The 5th Wave. I have a review already for this back, and it was done a long time ago, you can check it out here: The 5th Wave review.
This time around, I wanted to talk about some of the characters and the story. Let’s begin. 📚
