The Promise of Rain

‘They call him the Hound of Hell….’

Author: Shana Abe

Genre: Historical Romance, Enemy-to-Lover, Medieval Romance, Adult (sort of)

Happy Weekend, dearies! I hope you’re enjoying a great one.

Today I finished The Promise of Rain, and said, wow, the difference between reading an enjoyable book and when I don’t. Why? Because I read this one so fast, I couldn’t get enough of it, I had to finish it and know all their secrets. Unlike when I read The King’s Obsession, which I started last year and finished not long ago.

The Bane Chronicles: Vampires, Scones, and Edmund Herondale

“The marvelous thing about being a creature of the night,” she confided in a low voice, “is that one need never wear anything but evening clothes.”
Camille Belcourt

The Banes Chronicles Book 3

Authors: Cassandra Clare & Sarah Rees Brennan

Genre: YA, fantasy, Short Story, Paranormal

Here we are once again, dearies! I trust all is going well on your end, and you’re enjoying these tidbits on The Bane Chronicles, or perhaps my other reviews, they’re all on the main page, as you might know.

Now, we’re on the 3rd story in The Bane Chronicles, the one where we see vampires and Herondales, and scones too. I will always enjoy a good Herondale story, but this one was set in 1857 when even Charlotte Fairchild was a young girl, and that just makes you think how old Magnus really is, but no matter, we already knew that.

Blog ReCap 2021

“All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure.” Mark Twain

Hello, dearies! Happy New Year! 🎆

A New Year, a new life, nah, just kidding, same life as before, it’s only a new number in the year but same things happening. That sounded a bit dark on my end, but it’s also true.

Moving on.

Now, I don’t usually do recaps or stuff like this, but here we are because 2021 make me write tons of posts for some reason, so I’ll try to convey the ones I liked the most next. Including those where I rambled on about book characters. 😆

And sometimes book challenges.

5 Christmas-related Books for this December

What’s Christmas without a little light reading about Christmas? 🎁 🎄

Hello, dearies!

Is December going well? Every day seems to get colder over here, but we don’t have snow so it’s only that, cold, cold, cold. 🧣🥶

Today, I decided to bring a little Christmas back as I did in 2020, though I did this in 2018 as well, they were not all related to Christmas, you can still check those out and maybe find another good read that you haven’t seen before.

Okay, let’s start with this 2021 Christmas-related book recommendations. Oh, they are not from this year but I saw this time around and thought they looked interested enough.

Note: This post contains affiliate links, which means I get a tiny commission if you get one of the books, but the prices do not change for you. Thank you for understanding.

Deck the Hearts

By Rachelle Ayala

Opposites attract and sparks fly in the delightful small town of Christmas Creek.

Holly Jolly lives for Christmas. It’s the only time of the year, as far as she’s concerned.

Gordon Gills doesn’t need a reason to hate the holiday season. He doesn’t see the point.

Gordon returns to the mansion he inherited and finds Holly making a mess with her Christmas decorations. Unfortunately, his great-aunt’s will stipulates that he must make merry every Christmas if he wants to keep his inheritance.

Holly is determined to infect the grouchy Gordon with every dose of Christmas cheer she can muster and show him what Christmas is really about.

Fool Me Twice at Christmas (A Fake Engagement, Small Town, Holiday Romantic Comedy)

By Camilla Isley

There are two types of relationships: fake and real.

Chuck and Kate’s used to be real, oh-so-real. But after she broke his heart four months ago, leaving him, it became all just pretense for the sake of their entwined families.

With parents who are best friends and business partners, it’s not easy for Chuck and Kate to announce they’ve split up. But with the holidays looming over them, they can no longer keep pretending.

Chuck and Kate head home for Christmas, determined to tell the truth—and end up accidentally engaged instead. The more they try to pull apart, the more the Universe seems to push them back together, shortening the road to the altar. And when just-for-show kisses stir up forgotten feelings, things get even more complicated.

Now, with the midnight hour approaching, will Chuck and Kate’s relationship turn out to be fake or real?

On Christmas Avenue: A Christmas Romance From Hallmark Publishing

by Ginny Baird

Everybody loves a parade!
Well, everybody except Evan…

Evan, the county sheriff, knows that businesses are struggling in the small town of Clark Creek. But unlike the mayor—who happens to be his mother—he doesn’t think that hiring a “Christmas Consultant,” whatever that is, will help. Especially when this Christmas Consultant proposes a holiday parade that seems likely to overwhelm his staff and leave the town in even more debt.

Interview with the Vampire

“It was as if when I looked into his eyes I was standing alone on the edge of the world…on a windswept ocean beach. There was nothing but the soft roar of the waves.”

Author: Anne Rice 

Genre: Gothic, Horror, Vampire 🧛

This one is not going to be easy. 

Hello, dearies! I barely remember the details but the general idea instead since it was such a long time ago that I read Interview with the Vampire, what I do remember is thinking how darkly different it was from the movie. 

Of course, I had watched the movie before reading the book, but when I read this book, it was a real eye-opener for my young mind.

Life Events and 2 Reading Lists

Hi, dearies! 

I trust you’re all safe and well. 🍂 This one is a little off the track, but I wanted to mention I might not be as active this month; I have been dealing with some personal things with my family and will be focusing on them for September. 🍂 

My father needs heart ❤️ surgery, and we’re in the process of saving up and receiving any small contribution to help us achieve this goal, you can see the crowdfunding here, and if you can share, that is also a way of helping us. 

As I said, this is happening right now, so that’s why I’m kind of on a hiatus this month, not many posts on Instagram or here on the blog, but I’ll be back soon, hopefully. And thank you to all who have reached out or shared the news.
