Idhun’s Memories 3: Panteón

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.

HP and the Philosopher’s Stone

Saga: Harry Potter

Book: The Philosopher’s Stone

Author: JK Rowling

Oh, wow. I know this is weird perhaps, but I wanted to dedicate a little more to each of these books, although I already have the Wizarding World page where I say just how great everything is. I decided now, to go book by book, quickly and point out once more that they’re great, though it might surprise us Potterheads that there are still people out there who have not read HP ever in their lives, so this is for you too.

“The ancient study of alchemy is concerned with making the Philosopher’s Stone, a legendary substance with astonishing powers. The Stone will transform any metal into pure gold. It also produces the Elixir of Life, which will make the drinker immortal.”
