‘The most dangerous thing about Pandora is that you might grow to love her too much.’
Hello, dearies! 💖
Almost the end of the year, and some of this time you think back to what you read, watched or did. Mostly you cannot remember or think it was not this year. For months I cannot remember what I did because it was a mesh of months for me.
But I can try to remember for you, and this top shows of 2022 that I watched.

A mystery? Yes, it sort of was, but was it horror? Not really. This book dives into the mind of a Final Girl, literally. But that’s just one opinion.
Author: Grady Hendrix
Genre: Horror, Thriller, Fiction, Mystery
Well, I have my doubts about the horror tag or thriller, it’s more Mystery and Drama than anything else.
Hello, dearies! 📽
This one it’s more like a movie than a book, and you find yourself thinking about all the horror movies you watched in the past, and trying to pair those with the characters in the book rather than paying attention to the storyline.

This is the first audiobook I ever listened to, I don’t know if I’ll go back for another. On Daisy Darker? I don’t know if I’ll come back for more books from this author.
Author: Alice Feeney
Genres: Suspense, Drama, Thriller (?)
I give credit when and where credit is due.
Hello, dearies! 🐚
A new month is here, and only now am I publishing a new one, but the days just blend together lately.
Daisy Darker was my first audiobook, and half of the time I thought, I could be reading this instead of listening and it’ll be faster and perhaps a bit more interesting. But that is not part of the review, just a thought about audiobooks.

“The people you love weren’t algebra: to be calculated, subtracted, or held at arm’s length across a decimal point.”
Book: A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder
Series: A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder #1
Author: Holly Jackson
Genre: Mystery, Young Adult, Thriller
Here’s another that I didn’t think I would create or read, but life has its turns and here we are.
I enjoyed Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, even when the YA part got a little exaggerated and I was fighting with the main character out aloud alone in my room.

‘Kyoko Hori is a bright and popular high school student, in contrast to her classmate Izumi Miyamura, a gloomy and seemingly nerdy boy.’
by Hero, Daisuke Hagiwara (Artist)
A lovely one.
One of the first reviews I start with a one-liner I know already. 😄
Hello, dearies! 💖
Horimiya is one of those that I first watched the anime then read the manga, but it’s alright, you can do it like that as well, there’s not much difference in the story, except for the ending of the Manga, that’s a plus for us readers.
I’ll jump right in.

Hello, dearies! 📖
First off, let me tell you a bit of what you’ll encounter in this book review for Verity because I feel like some warnings are necessary.
I gave it 4 stars to not give it 3 because that would affect the author, and I’m sure many love this book. And It’s not that I didn’t like it perse, but I didn’t enjoy it fully either. I gave it 4 out of 5 because it was well-written, and I thought, yes, I could read other books by this author.
But this review is honest, as honest it can be without giving away the ending. I’m warning now and will be warning you further ahead that there are spoilers in this review, many if you don’t want to know anything before reading Verity like me. I read it without even looking at the genres of it.
Let’s begin. 📝

Author: Shana Abe
Genre: Historical Romance, Enemy-to-Lover, Medieval Romance, Adult (sort of)
Happy Weekend, dearies! I hope you’re enjoying a great one.
Today I finished The Promise of Rain, and said, wow, the difference between reading an enjoyable book and when I don’t. Why? Because I read this one so fast, I couldn’t get enough of it, I had to finish it and know all their secrets. Unlike when I read The King’s Obsession, which I started last year and finished not long ago.

It didn’t go quite as I expected.

Happy Weekend, dearies!
I hope I will make this clear and not ramble on too much. My feelings about Anne Boleyn: A King’s Obsession are mixed, and I mean that for real. I had the highest of hopes for this book, and it did not turn out as I expected it to be.
Let’s begin. 📜
Spoilers ahead if you don’t know the story behind Anne Boleyn or The Tudor Family.

“Complicated, shmomplicated,” she said, waving her hand. ”If you love her, you make it work.”
Author: Fiona Cole
Genre: Adult fiction. Romance. New Adult.
Where to start? I suppose from how I got here? Oh well, I first read the description for the sixth book in the series, Teacher, and was intrigued as hell, then I saw it was a whole series, and of course, I couldn’t read the last one first, so it began my journey.
The Voyeur Series has 6 books and a short story that you can read for free here.

“It wasn’t just me, and it wasn’t just him, it was what we were together that was the exception.”
Many little quotes like this make it a great read.
Author: Jamie McGuire
Genre: Romance, New Adult, Contemporary, Fiction, YA
I cannot believe I don’t have a post for this one. And honestly, all that I remember is that I loved at the time, despite being kind of a regular one, a romance, yes, but no fantasy in there. Yet, it hooked me for a time. 💞
Now, there is a movie in the making, and for some reason, I am excited about it. I am not feeling the actors that much, but I want to watch. Filming ends this week, and Jamie has been giving us regular news on it, and it’s making me want to read the book again. There are two sides of Beautiful Disaster, from Abby’s point of view and from Travis’, and the one from Travis freaking Maddox was too much excitement. I mean, he is on my list of favourite male characters in books, so there I admit that bad boys do hold their appeal.
