“What are you out here for at this time of night?”
Hello, dearies! 📖
I feel like I don’t say that enough in the past few months. Hope you’re a returning book lover, who likes my blog, but if you’re new, welcome!
Today, I thought and thought about what to write for my next post, and realised that it has been a while since I did a book challenge, so here we are. What better way to show love for books the thinking through all the books you have read in life, and trying to remember the town they were set in, right? Wrong, it’s nerve-wracking because the more you think about it, the less the memories come to you.

Series: Harry Potter
Book #6: The Half-Blood Prince
Author: JK Rowling
Genre: YA, fantasy, magic, drama
I’ve been waiting to talk about this one.
Hello, dearies! ⚡
The Half-Blood Prince was not going to be this week’s Throwback Thursday, but here we are, TBT with this Potter book.
I love the whole Harry Potter saga, I think that’s clear after me taking the time to talk about each book, but The Half-Blood Prince made me re-read it a few times when it first came out, and it soon became a favourite book.
After reading it, I had to wait for The Deathly Hallows, so I had to keep going back to The Half-Blood Prince for more.
Let us begin. 🔮
I’ll jump right in, and perhaps go back and forward, so please be patient with my upcoming rambling.
Sorry I didn’t publish this one earlier. Smashwords it’s currently running its annual End of Year Sale. Sale Dates: December 15 – January 1, 2023.
So, here is a new 2022 Smaswords list of books that are on sale or are free, get them while they’re hot. Here are some that caught my attention.

Santa’s Secret Helpers – Series
This Christmas, something magical is happening in Sapphire Bay. When a Christmas Facebook post goes viral, Emma, Kylie, Bailey, and Shelley are swamped with people asking Santa for help. Join them as they make people’s Christmas wishes come true and, in the process, find their happy ever after.
With a single touch, I’ve unlocked a piece of history that will irrevocably alter my future. For years, I’ve been hiding in plain sight, pretending to be an average young woman by running my mother’s antique shop and dating cute, ordinary guys.
When the kiss-cam lands on perpetually-single Gemma, she thinks she’ll die of embarrassment…Until the sexy stranger in the seat next to her steps in to save the day. But what happens when just one kiss isn’t enough?
And that’s it for this list, dearies! 🎇 Hope you found one that you would add to your reading list or buy at once. And this isn’t about me, but my romance books under my penname are also on Smashwords and on sale for December.
Thank you for stopping by the blog and hitting like, or sharing, or perhaps following the blog if you’re not already.
This is not my last of the year but if you don’t catch the next one then happy Christmas and upcoming New 2023. ⛄
This is the first audiobook I ever listened to, I don’t know if I’ll go back for another. On Daisy Darker? I don’t know if I’ll come back for more books from this author.
Author: Alice Feeney
Genres: Suspense, Drama, Thriller (?)
I give credit when and where credit is due.
Hello, dearies! 🐚
A new month is here, and only now am I publishing a new one, but the days just blend together lately.
Daisy Darker was my first audiobook, and half of the time I thought, I could be reading this instead of listening and it’ll be faster and perhaps a bit more interesting. But that is not part of the review, just a thought about audiobooks.

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.
