harry potter book 3 covers

HP and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Author: JK Rowling

Genre: Fantasy, YA, Adventure, Classics

Book 3 in the Harry Potter Saga

“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”

The one where everything started to make sense to me, and it got my attention to the point of moving me forward with the books, the story, everything about it. Mostly, thankful to Alfonso Cuarón for making it such a fun experience and making me watch the movie endless times, at this point in my life, I have lost count of how many times I have watched it. I had it on a VHS tape (suddenly felt old), anyway, I had it and re-watched it on my own many times, it made my teenage days better.

But, as always, this is about the book, not the movie. It goes without saying, that there are Spoilers for those that have not watched the movies, read the books, or watched the movies and didn’t read the books, or vice versa, you’ve been warned. 📖👈

Unpopular Opinion: Books I won’t read… probably

Hello, dearies! It’s been some time, again, I know. 

Muggle job. That’s all I can say.

I wanted to share today some of the titles that I probably won’t ever read because I have no desire whatsoever to do so, like I really feel no need to pick up one of these books, even if the world shouts about them on all ends. You know how it is, right? You like what you like, you have your favourite genres and authors too, and you have to make room for the new ones, but there are some that will not make it even to the TBR pile.

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.

A Lion’s Pride – First Three

Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance

Hello, dearies! How is December going? Mine is a bit cold and expecting it to be colder as the 24th approaches. 

This one will be short as the previous, sorry if I have been a little absent from social media and given quick reviews but work has been full-time, and sleep not so constant, yet, here we are again with another set of books.

Hello, dearies! ❄️It’s December 1st! ❄️ 2020 had us on a rollercoaster, but we made it this far, we can make until the 31st, right? Hopefully. 

I checked out Smashwords and found some titles that are Holiday, Christmas related, so I decided to share 5 that caught my eye, actually, there were more, but for now, I’m sharing these with you, in case you want to add them to your list and read on Christmas’ Eve. ☃️

A Rose in Winter

Author: Shana Abe

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

The great thing about Shana Abe’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 I’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 you’re good at the end, it was a nice ending and there a plot twist here and there that I didn’t expect.

Oh, the main character’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.That’s it for now. I hope you found a new book to read. You can read the description here.

Idhun’s Memories 3: Panteón

Trilogy: Idhún’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.

Let’s start.

Halloween Song Book Tag – ReTag?

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.

HP and The Chamber of Secrets

Saga: Harry Potter

Author: JK Rowling

Genre: Fantasy, Magic, Wizards

Continuing our journey through the magical world of Harry Potter, now, one of my favs, The Chamber of Secrets, not my all-time favourite but pretty close. For part one of this, you can read my ramblings on HP and the Philosopher’s Stone.

The Chamber of Secrets is one of the books I appreciate being a second good book, not many manage that, sometimes the second statements are either boring or slow or plain crazy, and other times like with Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles 2) or The Two Towers (The Lord of the Rings), you, just get a winner or Where She Went, none of these books has absolutely anything to do with each other, but they are all seconds and good ones, The Subtle Knife too from His Dark Materials. To the point, I know.
