5 bright glowing ⭐
Hello, dearies! 🧭
Prepare for some fangirling of epic proportions.
And maybe a bit of rambling too.
The Lost Book of The White takes us forward in time or further (way further) than The Red Scrolls of Magic, which I recommend you first read City of Bones before diving into that one, although it is not necessary.
So, I loved book 2 of The Eldest Curses, does that come across? Sometimes I don’t know if it really does. But I did, and it took me a while to write this one because… life, so my memories are a bit far away.

아, 진지하… (Seriously)
Hello, dearies! 📺
Honestly, I went from oh, my… to, seriously? 👀
I didn’t know before jumping into Memories of the Alahambra that it ended on basically a cliffhanger, and that was it. So, I’m telling you straight up so you know when you start watching it.

Title: バブル (Hepburn: Baburu) – Bubble
Where? Netflix. 📺
What is it? A movie. 📽️
Genres: Post-apocalyptic, YA, adventure.
Alright, so I sometimes do Anime related ones here as you might know. And Bubble deserved an entry.
It’s one of the best animated movies I’ve watched in the past three years. So charming, so heart throbbing and heartbreaking, and lovely and wowing, all at the same time.

Finally, but how I wished it would continue.
Hello, dearies! 😍
Because when in doubt or in a reading slump turn to the shadow world, and they will make your life better. Lighter. Heart throbbing. Beautifully well-written, better.

‘Word had spread throughout New York that Magnus was the warlock who would get you out of a jam. There was a Sanctuary, too, up in Brooklyn, if you needed to hide, but the witch who ran it didn’t solve your problems. Magnus solved problems. So why not get paid for it?’

Book: The Bane Chronicles – Book #6
Genres: Vampires, Fantasy, YA, Short Story
Hello, dearies! 🦇
I’m trying a new thing for Thursdays or Fridays, a sort of Throwback post or Flashback, and I thought this one would be perfect for it as The Bane Chronicles is a throwback indeed or a flashback if you must, at least for me.
As Today is Thursday, this is the first Throwback Thursday book review, thoughts.
Saving Raphael Santiago it’s not all that engraved in my mind, don’t ask me why because I cannot recall, but it was of the stories in The Bane Chronicles, so of course, I had to read it.

Hello, dearies! 📖
First off, let me tell you a bit of what you’ll encounter in this book review for Verity because I feel like some warnings are necessary.
I gave it 4 stars to not give it 3 because that would affect the author, and I’m sure many love this book. And It’s not that I didn’t like it perse, but I didn’t enjoy it fully either. I gave it 4 out of 5 because it was well-written, and I thought, yes, I could read other books by this author.
But this review is honest, as honest it can be without giving away the ending. I’m warning now and will be warning you further ahead that there are spoilers in this review, many if you don’t want to know anything before reading Verity like me. I read it without even looking at the genres of it.
Let’s begin. 📝

Hey there, dearies! 👽
Another week, another book. Nah, I don’t go by those kinds of rules. Here we are with Obsession, don’t let the title fool you or discourage you from reading this awesome one.

‘“Since we’re keeping it primal, you smell good,” he observed. He moved closer, making me acutely aware of his size, the rise and fall of his chest, the warm burn of his skin on mine. Electricity tingled along my scalp, and I shuddered with pleasure.’

Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Genre: YA, Fantasy, Romance, Supernatural, Angels, Urban Fantasy
Hi, dearies! This one is different from the last one because my perspective has broadened.
Years ago, I read this cool book by Becca Fitzpatrick and then went on to the whole Saga and loved it. That book was Hush Hush. 😄📖

‘At least a pretty flapper vampire talking nonsense was better than a slobbering drunk werewolf. Magnus nodded as if listening and mentally counted the bottles of brandy and rum in the storage shelves below the bar.’
The Bane Chronicles Book #5
Authors: Cassandra Clare & Maureen Johnson
Genre: Fantasy, YA, Short Stories, Paranormal, Vampires.
Hello, dearies! 🦇
With this one, The Rise of the Hotel Dumort, we jumped ahead in time to 1929, and not only that but New York, meaning the place where The Mortal Instruments will be lively, in the future; but we are still years away from that, and we experience the Hotel Dumort and what happened to it and their vampires. 🧛
This is a tale we wanted to know about from the TMI series, where we read about the Hotel and the past, and Magnus, so we go there and check out the events. I know I’m not saying that much, but this story is worth reading for the first time with an unbias look, so I’ll leave it to Magnus to tell you the story.

The One that we didn’t see coming and after we read it, we fell in love with yet another Herondale boy.
The Bane Chronicles Book 4
Authors: Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan
Genre: Fantasy, YA, Short Story, Magic, Urban.
Hello, dearies! Now, this one, wow. It’s one of my favourites in this collection. 🙂
It was supposed to be an easy one because I loved it, but thinking about the story, I remembered what it means for the rest of the shadowhunter world, and how anything I say may affect the story on the books that came after.
Mild spoilers ahead, you’ve been warned. 🖍️
