Hello, dearies! I found this challenge on Instagram, posted by @speight_reads, which basically consists of finding a book 📚 in a certain category or description.
Here we go. 📖Continue reading “Find That Book Challenge”
📚 Fun Book Challenge.
Today we have the Find That Book Challenge
I wanted to share today some of the titles that I probably won’t ever read because I have no desire whatsoever to do so, like I really feel no need to pick up one of these books, even if the world shouts about them on all ends. You know how it is, right? You like what you like, you have your favourite genres and authors too, and you have to make room for the new ones, but there are some that will not make it even to the TBR pile.
Hello, dearies! It’s been some time, again, I know.
Muggle job. That’s all I can say.

Books: The Dark Artifices, Ghosts of the Shadow Market
Alright, I am going to do it. I have to do it. If you do not know who Christopher Herondale is, then by all means either do not read this one or read away because you want some Spoiler from The Dark Artifices and The Lost Herondale legend.
Saga: Harry Potter
Book: The Philosopher’s Stone
Author: JK Rowling
Oh, wow. I know this is weird perhaps, but I wanted to dedicate a little more to each of these books, although I already have the Wizarding World page where I say just how great everything is. I decided now, to go book by book, quickly and point out once more that they’re great, though it might surprise us Potterheads that there are still people out there who have not read HP ever in their lives, so this is for you too.
“The ancient study of alchemy is concerned with making the Philosopher’s Stone, a legendary substance with astonishing powers. The Stone will transform any metal into pure gold. It also produces the Elixir of Life, which will make the drinker immortal.”

The never-ending list of To-be-read books continue. Now, I bring some more fantasy that I recently saw and added to my own list, and well, I wanted to share with you, readers.
I expanded to 10 from my regular 7 Ebooks lists because there were so many good-looking ones to pick from. Check some of these titles.
BTW: the links for each book are at the very top, I made this post a bit different.

‘Find out why readers are loving this fast-paced urban fantasy adventure with a kick-butt heroine and plenty of action, suspense and humor.
Are you ready for a new kind of witch? My name is Samantha Beaumont and I’m a witch. But I’m not your average dark witch. I specialize in Goetia—the ancient art of conjuring demons—and exorcisms.
That’s right. I hunt and banish demons and other supernatural baddies. But not with a fancy sword or a dagger. No, I banish these suckers with good old-fashioned magic.’
Author: Joseph R. Lallo
‘Beyond the islands of Caldera the world is a vicious place. A terrible calamity has poisoned the land. Those too ruthless or stubborn to die have crafted steam-powered mechanical wonders and taken to the sky. Yet somewhere in that wretched land there is a cure for a dire disease. With the eccentric crew of an airship called The Wind Breaker, Nita Graus means to find that cure, whatever the price.’
Author: Ali Winters
‘Clara kills a vampire to rid the world of at least one of the beasts and ends up indebted to a vampire.
If she can draw a single drop of blood from Alaric, he will consider her debt paid. But if she attempts and fails, she owes him. The price of her failure? A simple kiss. One that could change everything as she feels her attraction to him growing.’
Author: Janni Lee Simner
‘The war with Faerie is over, but the human world still bears the scars—stones that burn with deadly light, corn that resists being harvested, trees that seek human blood. When Liza discovers she, too, is touched by Faerie magic, she flees her town and the rules protecting it. Her journey will take her into Faerie and back again, and what she finds may be the key to healing both worlds.’
‘Reincarnated into a new world filled with magic and monsters, a king has a second chance to relive his life. Correcting the mistakes of his past will not be his only challenge, however. Underneath the peace and prosperity of the new world is an undercurrent threatening to destroy everything he has worked for, questioning his role and reason for being born again. ‘
Author: Odette C. Bell

‘This collection includes The Frey Saga book one: Frey, Descendants Series book one: Bound by Prophecy, and Shattered Realms book one: King of Ash and Bone.’
Okay, dearies! That’s it, enjoy and be merry, maybe one of these will be your or mine next all-time favourite book, you never know. Let me know if you have trouble with the links. Also let me know if you’d like to see more books like these ones or if you prefer a specific topic, anything could happen.
Okay, readers! Hello again! Here we go once more, I have searched for other 7 Ebooks that are either free at the moment or cost less than a dollar, and considering how bored we all are during quarantine, forced, voluntary or whatever, then we know something to pass the time.
Book: Ghosts of the Shadow Market
Authors: Cassie Clare
Genre: Pain, YA, more sorrow
Some of these reviews are way quicker than others, not only because they are short stories but also because I was not entirely stopping on all of them to jot down my thoughts, so things slip a bit out of my grasp when I actually write the review but be advised there might be some spoilers here, for those who don’t know much about the Shadow World. There are way too many books on it (which is great), and I’m grateful that I have read most of them. The Eldest Curses is the only big one that I’m missing right now.
Since we are all at home or at least should be, and probably the boredom will soon turn into a need to buy compulsively (it has happened in the past), I thought you might want to check some of the Smashwords books that are less than a Dollar or completely Free, I hope you don’t know some of these and if you do then apologies for any repeating titles.
Author: Cassandra Clare & Maureen Johnson
From: Ghosts of the Shadow Market
Type: Short Story
Genre: Fantasy, Supernatural, Drama
I’ll be quick with this one, though I have a few pointed comments. Spoilers might be included if you have not read any of the Shadowhunter books or the TID trilogy.
Lia Langford and Zane, where to start? Where they come from? Yes, I think that should be a good start.
Please be aware that they will be spoilers here if you don’t know the characters already, go to the bottom of the post, where I will leave you a link to either a review of the book where they came from or to an outside source so you can buy it, read the book, and then come back here to chat or read about these two.
