HP and the Philosophers Stone

HP and the Philosopher’s Stone

Saga: Harry Potter

Book: The Philosopher’s Stone

Author: JK Rowling

Oh, wow. I know this is weird perhaps, but I wanted to dedicate a little more to each of these books, although I already have the Wizarding World page where I say just how great everything is. I decided now, to go book by book, quickly and point out once more that they’re great, though it might surprise us Potterheads that there are still people out there who have not read HP ever in their lives, so this is for you too.

“The ancient study of alchemy is concerned with making the Philosopher’s Stone, a legendary substance with astonishing powers. The Stone will transform any metal into pure gold. It also produces the Elixir of Life, which will make the drinker immortal.”

There is so much to say, and I better give it to you straight and without delay, this is mostly my thoughts while reading, inmeditely after, or right in the middle of things, so pardon my scattered ramblings, but it had to be like this.

Ghosts of the Shadow Market: The Lost World

Book: Ghosts of the Shadow Market

Authors: Cassie Clare 

Genre: Pain, YA, more sorrow

Some of these reviews are way quicker than others, not only because they are short stories but also because I was not entirely stopping on all of them to jot down my thoughts, so things slip a bit out of my grasp when I actually write the review but be advised there might be some spoilers here, for those who don’t know much about the Shadow World. There are way too many books on it (which is great), and I’m grateful that I have read most of them. The Eldest Curses is the only big one that I’m missing right now.

Ghosts of the Shadow Market: The Land I Lost

Book: Ghosts of the Shadow Market

Series: Shadowhunters. Shadow World

Authors: Cassandra ClareSarah Rees Brennan

Is going to be short, but I wanted to relay just how amazingly good it was, that even after reading all the Shadow World books there is still room for the little stories, and we will still love them all as if they were part of a series.

7 EBooks for Under a Dollar or Free

Hello, everyone!

Since we are all at home or at least should be, and probably the boredom will soon turn into a need to buy compulsively (it has happened in the past), I thought you might want to check some of the Smashwords books that are less than a Dollar or completely Free, I hope you don’t know some of these and if you do then apologies for any repeating titles.

His Dark Materials Trilogy

Author: Philip Pullman

Genre: Fantasy, High Fantasy, Science Fantasy

So Fantasy, yes.

I read these books a long time ago so bear with me.

The main thing I always remember about His Dark Materials books is that I found them utterly fascinating and I could not stop reading after finishing the first one, the second and third had to be read and they were far more exciting than the Northern Lights. I’m not going to go into it book by book but probably jump around between the three, I hope you are ready.

origin book 2 burning shadow

The Burning Shadow

Series: Origin

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Genre: Holy Alien Babies. Fiction. Drama. Supernatural. 

Alright so, I tried to stop and give you a briefing as I was reading this one like I did with The Darkest Star, but I started in Ch 19. You’ll just have to believe that before that moment, everything was good and I couldn’t stop reading; afterward, I forced myself to stop and put down the book (The Burning Shadow obviously) to write random (not so random) notes.
