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. ☄️

Hello, dearies! 📖
Here we are once more, another book challenge and this time about the books that are most tempting on my shelf. It was not easy to choose.
I decided on three that have been sitting on my shelf for some time, but I have every intention to read since I took the time of picking them from a shelf at a bookstore.
Here we go. 📌

“You do care,” said Dumbledore. He had not flinched or made a single move to stop Harry demolishing his office. His expression was calm, almost detached. “You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it.”

Genres: Fantasy, YA, Short Stories, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy
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.

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.

Hello, dearies! 📚 🙂 I trust this new January is going superb for you or that February will bring in new things.
This one is not a review perse. It’s more of an I’ve-read-it-before, and I cannot talk about specifics or how a certain line was my absolute favourite, and the reason is that The Alchemist is one of those books that I read years ago, like ages, aeons ago.

“It was a very bad idea. It was a terrible idea. It was the worst idea he had ever heard. It was irresistible.”
The Bane Chronicles Book 2
Authors: Cassandra Clare & Maureen Johnson
Genres: Fantasy. YA.
It’s not easy writing about what you have read years ago, but I do my best here. The Runaway Queen is the second story in The Bane Chronicles, the compilation about Magnus Bane life before and some after he met Alec, and from the time we read about Magnus in The Mortal Instruments, we wanted to know this kind of story since he is quite old and had many things to tells us throughout the books.
