Hello, dearies! 📝
Here’s another I wouldn’t have picked up from a shelf on a trip to the bookstore, yet I read it.
The Nothing Man is one of those books that didn’t have my full attention until about sixty per cent of it was already behind me.
I could have left it on the side, I could have stopped reading long before that half mark, but I pushed on, and I am sorry for those who are fans, but it didn’t amount to much at the end.

“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.

‘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?’

Book: The Bane Chronicles – Book #6
Genres: Vampires, Fantasy, YA, Short Story
Hello, dearies! 🦇
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.

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. 📝

Genre: Fiction, Fantasy, YA, Science Fiction, Time Travel.
Hello, dearies! 🌌
I finished this one as quickly as I could, not because I wanted to get it over with but because I had Starcaster on my TBR since forever.
It was a great read, and I recommend it. ☄️

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. 💘

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.
