The Idhun Chronicles Part 2

The Idhun Chronicles, the story we wished for years to become a realisation. Adaptation from Spanish trilogy Memorias de Idhún by Laura Gallego.

Where? Netflix.

Based on a Book? Yes.

For the review of the book, you can go here: Idhun’s Memories. 📙

Hello, dearies! It’s August of 2021, as in we are past the mid-year mark, as we are almost looking at Autumn in the eye, and I finally watched the second part of The Idhun Chronicles, I know it took me some time, but I already knew what it was about and where it was headed knowing the end of the book and all, and knowing that there are no more seasons or parts or nothing, so I was taking my time, and I had a lot of work, now I am a free bird, and can do other things.

I am not sure if you watched the first part of these cool animated series, but you probably should. It’s on Netflix, and you can read my review here:

The Last Star

⭐⭐⭐⭐

Trilogy: The 5th Wave

Author: Rick Yancey

Genre: YA, Science Fiction, Dystopia, Post Apocalyptic, Aliens

📖

I gave it 4 stars out of consideration, and I didn’t want to put 3.

I don’t enjoy writing bad reviews, or what some might count as bad or not perfect-I-loved-everything-about-it or even hey-you-should-read-this-is-a-must-read. I like recommending books that I enjoyed, but then the endings come, and they’re so, what the frack is this?

That’s kind of how I felt all the way through the last chapters of The Last Star. Up until the last chapter, I had hopes, the hope that it would end differently, but it didn’t.

Let’s get this party started. First, I have some commentary on some of the chapters, then it comes the final review, and if you haven’t read my previous reviews on these books, you can check them out before reading this one:

Though you might find them a little different from this one, and they were written a long time ago.

Alright, so the warning, Spoilers ahead! Like there are Spoilers if you haven’t read The Last Star. You have been properly warned.

Fiction – Graphic novels & comics I didn’t know

I was taking a quick look on Smashwords today and saw this section on Graphic novels, though I think it should be more like Fiction with a touch of graphic? Well, at least the ones that I saw didn’t have much comic on them.

Hello, dearies! ✨

Happy 4th of July ✨ to those who celebrate it. I was taking a quick look on Smashwords today and saw this section on Graphic novels, though I think it should be more like Fiction with a touch of graphic? Well, at least the ones that I saw didn’t have much comic on them.

So, I saw these and thought you might like to check them out too, I haven’t read them or anything, I just read the titles and thought that they could be included in the TBR, so don’t take my word for it. 😂📚

Here we go.

HP and the Prisoner of Azkaban

HP and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The one where everything started to make sense to me, and it got my attention to the point of moving me forward with the books, the story, everything about it.

Author: JK Rowling

Genre: Fantasy, YA, Adventure, Classics

Book 3 in the Harry Potter Saga

“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”

The one where everything started to make sense to me, and it got my attention to the point of moving me forward with the books, the story, everything about it. Mostly, thankful to Alfonso Cuarón for making it such a fun experience and making me watch the movie endless times, at this point in my life, I have lost count of how many times I have watched it. I had it on a VHS tape (suddenly felt old), anyway, I had it and re-watched it on my own many times, it made my teenage days better.

But, as always, this is about the book, not the movie. It goes without saying, that there are Spoilers for those that have not watched the movies, read the books, or watched the movies and didn’t read the books, or vice versa, you’ve been warned. 📖👈

5 eBooks that You didn’t know Existed

Probably.

Hello, dearies! As I mentioned before, Smashwords is having a week of deals for eBooks, you can find from 25% to 100% off so don’t be afraid to stop by it and take a look at the authors there, some like myself are self-published, and it’s a great place to let your stories be known.

Now, I found these titles that I think might be of interest to you, well, I thought that I could add them to my never-ending TBR list but that’s me. Check them out. (If you want any, you can click on the title for it and you’ll be directed to the site).

Confessions of a Shopaholic

Author: Sophie Kinsella

⭐⭐⭐

Genre: Women’s Fiction, Chick Lit, Humor, Romance

That was not what I was expecting one bit. This is what happens when you read a book after you have watched the movie so many times that you almost now the dialogues of it. 

But this does not mean I didn’t enjoy it. I quite liked this book if not loved, it made me laugh and seeing how Rebecca Bloomwood made excuses after excuses to buy anything was unbelievable. I suppose that is really how a shopaholic would be. 

Some spoilers might be ahead, be wary.

A Rose in Winter

The great thing about Shana Abe’s books, is that in the end, you end up liking them, in some way or another.

Author: Shana Abe

Genres: Historical, Romance, European Literature, Fiction, Adult

The great thing about Shana Abe’s books, is that in the end, you end up liking them, in some way or another. Of course, nothing compares to The Drakon Series, which I still believe to be greatest ones I’ve read by her, next to The Sweetest Dark books, but A Rose in Winter had me from ugh to ooh to aww to wow, I did not give it 5 stars because there was not that total awesome and abandonment into it that had drawn me to other books, but I enjoyed it enough, and if you brave it out through the middle of it, then you’re good at the end, it was a nice ending and there a plot twist here and there that I didn’t expect.

Oh, the main character’s name is Damon, so, of course, I had to go on reading until I knew how it all ended.

This one is quite short since I just thought to share with you guys this rather quick read I had, I mean according to my ebook reader, it took me about 9 hours to finish the book, and that divided in several days, which mean I could have finished the book in a day if I had had the time to do as much.That’s it for now. I hope you found a new book to read. You can read the description here.

Idhun’s Memories 3: Panteón

I finished this one a second time (maybe third), and I can still recommend it, I loved it again.

Trilogy: Idhún’s Memories (The Idhun Chronicles)

Author: Laura Gallego

🌟⭐🌠🌠🌟

I’m doing this one because it felt in some parts like I was reading it for the first time.

And I completely blocked out 2 facts in this book or so it seems, it was so real for me that A died, at first I was perplexed that that fact was out of my mind for so long.

So, let’s do this once more, and I apologise beforehand because I know these books are in Spanish and some of you might not be able to read them yet, still, I wanted to share.

The Lunar Chronicles 3: Cress

It doesn’t usually happen, but Marissa sometimes manages to shock me and made me scream and curse at the pages of books, and I had some of those moments with Cress. And the last page took me by surprise, I was so engrossed in it, that I turned and when I saw the Acwnologements page my jaw fell. I knew I would finish this book way too quickly

Author: Marissa Meyer

Series: The Lunar Chronicles

Genre: Sci-fi, fantasy, romance (sort of), YA, Dystopia, Retellings

Starting straightaway…
