Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

Author: Jack Thorne

Story by: J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne

This is not going to be easy. Stories from the past might blend in. Tales of old might be thrown in here. If you read it, you surely loved it, if you saw the play, you surely loved every part of it.

I cannot believe I did not write about this one before, my lack of Harry Potter reviews in the blog is by no means something you should worry about, nor something that should make you think that I do not love the books and movies because I do but the Wizarding World is simply to wide and amazing, and across all my networks, Pinterest specially, you can tell just how much it is that I love it after all this time. Let us begin.

The Fiercest Joy

Author: Shana Abé

Book 3 in The Sweetest Dark Trilogy. And book 8 in the Drakon world. Probably the numbers will change if Shana decides to write extra books about this story, this wonderful world she has created cannot be described in mundane words, it is too wonderful and so full of magic but I will do my best to convince you.

If you have read my previous post about these series (The Sweetest Dark) then you might be prepared for what it is coming now. It is all about the magic, and the drakon; it might be short but it will be sincere. Here it is.

The Hunger Games Trilogy – Review

Author: Suzanne Collins

Well it took me about 5 to 6 years to read them but here I am, and I am done with all of them, I think I broke my own personal record with this one, I read all three books in two weeks give or take. Maybe you are saying that is not fast but between work and life, it is fast.

I really did not have any intention of reading them anytime soon but for some reason, re-watching The Hunger Games movies made me want to read, I picked them up and started with the first line that I already knew, and then got past it, the weird first-person narrative. And then I couldn’t stop, I knew the whole story but it was an easy read, and it was good to read something as if for the second time; since I really like the movies I didn’t know how I would feel with the books.

I cannot really say which I like best, so I will leave it at: they are both good.

Outlander Series: (Voyager + Drums of Autumn)

Author: Diana Gabaldon

I should probably start off with Voyager, and I will try to look pass the things that I did not enjoy.

I read it fast and not just because it was the first book of the Outlander series which was completely new to me since Outlander and Dragonfly in Amber I already knew what would happen because of the TV Show, no, this one I read really fast because of the parts where Claire was on her own, those blurred.

Spoilers ahead if you have not read these 2 books, kindly stop if you have not read.

Lord of Shadows Review

I will first give you, the unedited review, this is what I felt and thought when I first finished the book. Be wary, it contains so many spoilers you will have to jump to the end of it, where I said it is good and nothing else, if you do not want to know what happens at the end of the book. You have been warned.

Lady Midnight

Do I need to say is by Cassandra Clare? You probably already know that, but there I said it. Now, I might have to warn you that this review: could contain some minor spoilers, that I might talk a lot about Julian Blackthorn, and that I freaking loved it! Even more so than the other 10, I was as surprised as anyone else, because I love TMI and Clockwork Princess became one of my favorite books, but Lady Midnight was just too F**king Awesome!

And I know you will enter my chaotic thought process… thank you for being here. What you are about to read has some minor spoilers and it was written during and shortly after I read LM.

The Infernal Devices: Review and Thoughts

Author: Cassandra Clare

I’ll try to make this quick…

I tend to say that but considering that I have to talk about Jem, Will and Tessa that might not be entirely true this time… oh! And Gideon as well as Gabriel and Cecily but the latter two will not be that much in my ramblings.

What to say that has not been said before? I know, lots of things! Because never in my wildest dreams (cue in Taylor Swift’s song in the background if you want) would have I imagined that Cassandra could surprise me or make me love even more characters from the Shadow World, Jem is almost certainly perfect, Tess can be a little bit annoying but by book 3 you wanted to be like her or have her luck, that was when you were not crying over the events in that book, as for Will Herondale… what can I say? You might have thought he was just like Jace but in the end he really wasn’t, not entirely.

But that is enough for the overview, I will give you a bit of what I thought as I was reading Clockwork Prince and Clockwork Princess, since Clockwork Angel is pretty much done in that link you just overlooked. I do not think that there is much spoilers here but if you are like me and do not like to know a thing a book before reading it, then do not continue, just know this: They Are Great.

Clockwork Angel… short review

Author: Cassandra Clare

I should really wait until I finish all three books, which is what I was going to do before writing this. Oh! Well, I am doing it right now.

Have you read The Mortal Instruments? I hope you have, because they are so completely awesome, but this is about what happened before Clary, Jace, the Lightwoods, and Simon all got together to save the world.

Stardust

 Author: Neil Gaiman 

Well, this is a first. I didn’t like this book as much as I suspected I would, I loved the movie is one of my favourite movies of all times, I have lost count of the times I’ve watched it, I practically know the dialogues by heart as well as the music and scenery, I love it.

But we are here, in this virtual space because of the books, books we love, books we share with others, books we share even when we don’t like them that much (even thought I do not tend share the ones I do not love). I wish I could say that I absolutely adored this read but I got to be honest, I have read better, I am not saying that Mr Gaiman is a bad a writer or nothing of the sort because he isn’t and he has incredible imagination, this is about me and the fixation I had with the movie, I suppose.  Although it really is the first time that I read something and did not find it as charming as the film.

The Infinite Sea: Honest Review

Author: Rick Yancey

Forget all in the world for hours and get lost in The Infinite Sea that Rick Yancey created for us. Why mention that it is honest? Are they not all honest? Yes, they are but this one felt like it really struck a couple of nerves more than others, and I decided to pour out everything like never before.

This contains spoilers, so read only if you have read The Infinite Sea.

I had my doubts when I started the book, and I started the book because I liked The 5th Wave’s Ending, this one though, took me more than any other book to read, and it was not because it was bad but because nearing the end, when I was 80% done with it, and Ringer was been transformed into an enhanced human and there was nothing to do about it, I stopped reading for some unknown reason, I could not bring myself to finish it because then there will be no more.
