You know what’s funny about House of the Dragon storyline and promo is that they say, return to Westeros and meet the history of Targaryen and Hightower, like fans of the show will hardly know what you’re referring to with Hightower, they scratched the surface with that house.
I bet not even half of those who watched the show would even be able to say, ah yes I know that house.
And no, the one you’re probably thinking about is the Tyrells, who are from Highgarden.
In the books, of course, we know a lot more about them like the fact that Margery Tyrell’s mother was (is?) from Hightower.
So, yes, just a fun fact for everyone out there, I saw a promo vid for House of the Dragon and thought, huh, do they even know?
I’m currently reading Fire and Blood, and it’s interesting, to say the least, I hope to finish it before the show is out, but as most of George R. R. Martin’s books are a thousand million pages long, then that remains to be seen if I’ll finish quickly or not.
I’ll keep you posted and look for the review on it.
‘Word had spread throughout New York that Magnus was the warlock who would get you out of a jam. There was a Sanctuary, too, up in Brooklyn, if you needed to hide, but the witch who ran it didn’t solve your problems. Magnus solved problems. So why not get paid for it?’
I’m trying a new thing for Thursdays or Fridays, a sort of Throwback post or Flashback, and I thought this one would be perfect for it as The Bane Chronicles is a throwback indeed or a flashback if you must, at least for me.
As Today is Thursday, this is the first Throwback Thursday book review, thoughts.
Saving Raphael Santiago it’s not all that engraved in my mind, don’t ask me why because I cannot recall, but it was of the stories in The Bane Chronicles, so of course, I had to read it.
‘“Since we’re keeping it primal, you smell good,” he observed. He moved closer, making me acutely aware of his size, the rise and fall of his chest, the warm burn of his skin on mine. Electricity tingled along my scalp, and I shuddered with pleasure.’
The Lightwoods, the Shadowhunters who run the New York Institute, are expecting a new addition to their family: the orphaned son of their father’s friend, Jace Wayland.

I thought I had posted about this one before, but it seems I didn’t.
Hello, dearies! I hope you’re enjoying the quick reviews about the Shadowhunters world. 📖
And this is all from memory, I haven’t read this book again in a while, and it’s past time that I do because there will be another one in stores soon, and I am yet to read Chain of Iron, but I am a little afraid to do so, just like I am of finishing The Brightest Night, I want to, but then it will be all over, so I have been postponing it.
Now, for the Ghosts of the Shadow Market, which I think is on my top 5 of books that I love in the Shadow World, it was all Jem on these short stories, and you can check out my other reviews on my Shadow World section. 💘

Rowling; Steve Kloves, you know that what’s happening in the movie is for real because JK has a hand on it, like she did in the past Fantastic Beasts movies.
‘At least a pretty flapper vampire talking nonsense was better than a slobbering drunk werewolf. Magnus nodded as if listening and mentally counted the bottles of brandy and rum in the storage shelves below the bar.’
The Bane Chronicles Book #5
Authors:Cassandra Clare & Maureen Johnson
Genre:Fantasy, YA, Short Stories, Paranormal, Vampires.
Hello, dearies! 🦇
With this one, The Rise of the Hotel Dumort, we jumped ahead in time to 1929, and not only that but New York, meaning the place where The Mortal Instruments will be lively, in the future; but we are still years away from that, and we experience the Hotel Dumort and what happened to it and their vampires. 🧛
This is a tale we wanted to know about from the TMI series, where we read about the Hotel and the past, and Magnus, so we go there and check out the events. I know I’m not saying that much, but this story is worth reading for the first time with an unbias look, so I’ll leave it to Magnus to tell you the story.

Hello, dearies! How is January ending?
I managed to post more than I expected this month, so I’m happy.
I recently finished Hotel Del Luna, and I had my suspicion that I would like it but I really enjoyed it, and it was so much fun to watch with my mom, she joined me mid-story but caught on quickly, and was into the story. Is something else when the elderly love K-Dramas as much as you do, you know they’re good. 😀
Exciting News about The Lunar Chronicles film adaptation.
Hello, dearies! 👠
