‘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?’

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. 📝

Hello, dearies! 🌌
I finished this one as quickly as I could, not because I wanted to get it over with but because I had Starcaster on my TBR since forever.

It took me some time to write this one, but here I am. As promised.
I will give you the randomness of my thoughts as they came when I was reading Finale, so bear with me for a bit. You might enjoy the quotes and snippets from the book.
Fair warning, this post is full of spoilers if you haven’t read any of the books in the Hush Hush Saga, including this one, book 4, Finale.
For more insight, you might want to first read my revamped review of Books 1 – 3.

‘“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.’

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. 😄📖

“You do care,” said Dumbledore. He had not flinched or made a single move to stop Harry demolishing his office. His expression was calm, almost detached. “You care so much you feel as though you will bleed to death with the pain of it.”

Hello, dearies! I hope your day, night, midnight or early morning is going well and you are staying healthy and safe.
For this one, I cannot be certain how it will go since it was one of my favourites, the book and the movie, even though there’re tons of differences, I love to rewatch The Order of The Phoenix.
Let us begin at once. No time like the present. 📽️📘

Book: Ghosts of the Shadow Market
Story: Son of the Dawn
Author: Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan
Genres: Fantasy, YA, Short Stories, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy
I thought I had posted about this one before, but it seems I didn’t.
Hello, dearies! I hope you’re enjoying the quick reviews about the Shadowhunters world. 📖
And this is all from memory, I haven’t read this book again in a while, and it’s past time that I do because there will be another one in stores soon, and I am yet to read Chain of Iron, but I am a little afraid to do so, just like I am of finishing The Brightest Night, I want to, but then it will be all over, so I have been postponing it.
Now, for the Ghosts of the Shadow Market, which I think is on my top 5 of books that I love in the Shadow World, it was all Jem on these short stories, and you can check out my other reviews on my Shadow World section. 💘

‘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.

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.
