The Promise of Rain

‘They call him the Hound of Hell….’

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.

Anne Boleyn: A King’s Obsession

It didn’t go quite as I expected.

Author: Alison Weir

Genre: Historial Fiction, Tudor Period, Adult, Romance (so-so)

3 ⭐+ 1

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.

Voyeur Series

“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.

Beautiful Disaster

“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.

The Duke and I

The Duke and I, the book that made it impossible for me to read anything else for a month and the one who I could have finished in two days.

⭐⭐⭐

Author: Julia Quinn

Bridgertons Series Book 1

Genre: Romance, Historical Romance, Regency, Adult (sort of)

Guess what? This rarely happens to me, but it took me over a month to read The Duke and I, shocking! I know. 📖😵

And I finish half the book and a night and a morning, with some hours of sleep in between and also like an hour of work thrown in there. I mean, it’s outrageous to believe that for the whole of February, I didn’t feel the need to pick up the book, and when I did, I often put it down after a few pages because I would drift very often and not know what I was reading, the words would not compute. 

I’m sorry for this author, JQ, but maybe it’s something in her narrative, and I’m sorry for all the fans out there, but it’s the truth. Alright, alright. I will begin to talk a bit more about the plot and story and will also compare it with the Netflix show, I watched it before reading this. So… possible spoilers ahead.👀

Midnight Sun

Twilight and Midnight Sun are pretty much the same but Ed and Bells have a way of getting on your nerves separately. Cool book.

Series: Twilight

Author: Stephenie Meyer

Get the book: Midnight Sun – Ebook or Hardcover

Let’s get this PoV started… I was so excited and I read with excitement up until some points at the end that had the capacity to slow my reading progress but at the same time I wanted to finish because I like the story as a whole, these books and movies were a big part of my life in the past and so I wanted to continue and see what Edward thought for sure, I didn’t expect him to be so mopey at times.

Wuthering Heights

“I have to remind myself to breathe — almost to remind my heart to beat!”

Author: Emily Brontë

Genres: Tragedy, Gothic fiction

I read this one a long time ago, as in years ago! So I cannot really say that my memories of it are that specific though I will try to make it justice.

The Darkest Star

And then I was done. Wow. The last chapter was pretty normal, but before that everything was really heated.
Genres: YA. Fantasy. Romance. Totally F*ing Awesome

Origin Series

Author: Jennifer Armentrout

Genres: YA. Fantasy. Romance. Totally F*ing Awesome

This is not going to be easy. Also this is going to be so incredibly full of my really inner thoughts. Get ready.

And then I was done. Wow. The last chapter was pretty normal, but before that everything was really heated. I will try to keep the spoilers to a minimum because I want you guys to read it without knowing the main events. However since the first chapters I have been stopping and writing little notes about the moments that got to me.

Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy

Authors: Cassandra Clare, Sarah Ress Brennan, Maureen Johnson, Robin Wasserman

Genre: Short Stories, Fantasy, Young Adult

There are so many moments in this one, I will try to be organised and direct.

If you have not read any of the books in the Shadow World, specially The Mortal Instruments, then I seriously recommend that you first read those and then this one, and if you do not know what this one is about or who is the main character, then please stop reading this, because it contains spoilers for those who are new to the Shadowhunters world. That said, welcome and I hope you share my thoughts on this one.
