Finally, but how I wished it would continue.

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.

Friday Flashback: Eclipse

“I coveted you. I had no right to want you–but I reached out and took you anyway. And now look what’s become of you! Trying to seduce a vampire.”

Happy Friday, dearies! 📚

Here we are once more. A new Friday, a new Flashback.

And a random one for this Friday’s Flashback. 🧛

I just thought, why not? Eclipse, book #3 in the Twilight Series, was one of my favourites, and I re-read it so many times (back then) that I wore it out and on the outside it stopped looking new, meaning it’s well-used now. 😄

Hello, dearies!

Here’s another that I didn’t think I would create or read, but life has its turns and here we are.

I enjoyed Good Girl’s Guide to Murder, even when the YA part got a little exaggerated and I was fighting with the main character out aloud alone in my room.

Horimiya

‘Kyoko Hori is a bright and popular high school student, in contrast to her classmate Izumi Miyamura, a gloomy and seemingly nerdy boy.’

by Hero, Daisuke Hagiwara (Artist)

A lovely one.

One of the first reviews I start with a one-liner I know already. 😄

Hello, dearies! 💖

Horimiya is one of those that I first watched the anime then read the manga, but it’s alright, you can do it like that as well, there’s not much difference in the story, except for the ending of the Manga, that’s a plus for us readers.

I’ll jump right in.

Flashback: The 5th Wave

“You can only call someone crazy if there’s someone else who’s normal. Like good and evil. If everything was good, then nothing would be good.”

Hello, dearies! 📙

This is not a book review.

Here we are again, another week, another throwback or flashback as it is, a Friday Flashback. Last week, I started this little section with a review (sort of) for The Bane Chronicles: Saving Raphael Santiago, which marked the first look into the past, and it was a TBT.

Now, this week I decided to go with a book that I loved in the past, and on the second round of reading it, The 5th Wave. I have a review already for this back, and it was done a long time ago, you can check it out here: The 5th Wave review.

This time around, I wanted to talk about some of the characters and the story. Let’s begin. 📚

The Bane Chronicles: Saving Raphael Santiago

‘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?’

Story: Saving Raphael Santiago

Authors: Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan

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.

Stranger Things Season 4 is now available, and all that promises it delivers, you can watch all of it now, or wait until July for the second part and binge-watch the whole season, I would have done that, but I couldn’t wait anymore, I wanted to see now, now, go, go.

It took me some time to write this one, but here I am. As promised.

Hush Hush Book 1-3 Revamped Review

‘“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.’
