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.

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.

Genre: Fantasy, Romance, Science-Fiction

Well this was a good and bad idea for me. Not the contents of the book, that I loved, but actually starting to read it and finishing it. Let me explain better while telling you what I thought.

Dating Disasters of Emma Nash

Author: Chloe Seager

Genre: YA, Comedy

This one was a gift, it came in one of those wonderful boxes that bring bookish goodies, sorry I cannot remember which box but when it first arrived, I said: who’s this chick? What is this book? And decided to leave it for later.

I think it has been a year since that or nearly, and finally I picked up Emma and begun to read. She’s a bit nutty I will admit. Now, read this whole post with a British accent and you are good to go with the book. This is what happened.

Caution, somethings might be considered spoiler, you have been warned.

Queen of Air and Darkness

Author: Cassandra Clare

The Dark Artifices #3

Genre: YA, Supernatural, Fantasy, Romance, Drama, Crying, Throwing the book across the room

This is not going to be easy, and I do not think it is going to be really short.

Last night I finished Queen of Air and Darkness (QOAAD from now on), if I had read it in December when it came out it would have been the Best Read of 2018, alas, it was not, it is the Best Read of 2019 so far, and unless The Red Scrolls of Magic is something incredibly amazing and even more epic, it will stay the best book, because Cassie Clare did it again, she went a step forward, she makes you want to be inside the book, inside the Shadow World, be part of a family, be part of a world that you only know through words on paper, it was awesome.

The Darkest Star

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.

The Bane Chronicles

How do you write a review about a book this size without losing some of its charm on the way? I do not know, so I decided to do it story by story, because I can and because every story in The Bane Chronicles deserves to have a little piece here.

The Lunar Chronicles 2: Scarlet

Book Series: The Lunar Chronicles 2

Author: Marissa Meyer

Genres: Young-Adult, Futuristic, Re-telling, Sci-fi

Recommendation: 4.5 Stars

I liked it, a lot, I think more than Cinder, however for letting us hanging at the beginning in such a way, we wanted more of Kai and Cinder, and instead were greeted by a stranger, for that and for not grasping my attention as I know it should have been grasped, because of it, 4.5 of 5.

Now my thoughts on the whole thing, you will be surprised by how much I liked it.
