HP and the Philosophers Stone

HP and the Philosopher’s Stone

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.”
—A Hogwarts library book

Ghosts of the Shadow Market: The Lost World

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.

Genre: Shōjo

Year: 1996 – 2000

Author: CLAMP

Who does not know about Sakura Kinomoto, right? In some capacity, you know her or have seen her at one point or another in your life. I’d like to clarify, this is about the manga but the anime is of course what made us start loving everything about this world.

Namaikizakari

Author: Mitsubachi Miyuki

Genres: School Life, Romance, Sports

This one is late by a lot, though not so much considering that this is ongoing. Alright, it is a Manga as you might have guessed by the name and it is still going, and it is completely amazing.

I cannot be sure that any of you read Manga but if you do then you would love this one, do not let the element of sports throw you off, it is actually pretty cool and it is not the only thing the story is about. I cannot really remember how I got to it but I know that after the first two chapters I was completely hooked and Naruse is so great.

2009 Reads

This was going to be all the books I was reading in 2009 but now let us say a decade or so ago. I cannot really remember what I had in my hands back then, I was actually shock when I realised that Twilight was a decade ago, but then I started to think back and tried to remember what I really was reading and could not actually recall, thought I will do my best to name some titles here.

The Darkest Star

Origin Series

Author: Jennifer Armentrout

Genres: YA. Fantasy. Romance. Totally F*ing Awesome

This is not going to be easy. Also this is going to be so incredibly full of my really inner thoughts. Get ready.

And then I was done. Wow. The last chapter was pretty normal, but before that everything was really heated. I will try to keep the spoilers to a minimum because I want you guys to read it without knowing the main events. However since the first chapters I have been stopping and writing little notes about the moments that got to me.

Cuando Me Veas

When You See Me

Original Title: Cuando Me Veas

Author: Laura Gallego

Genres: YA, Drama, Fiction

I feel I must warn you that this one is full of Spoilers, as in I will immediately tell you what happened at the end of the book, because it got stuck in my mind and I could not stop replaying it. So if you want to read this book at some point, I do not suggest you read this, only know that it is good and I absolutely recommend it, since most (All) of Laura’s books that I have read in my life are so freaking good, that it is unbelievable. Like: Idhun’s Memories.

Now, let us begin with some details about the book, and once again, there are spoilers ahead.

The Lunar Chronicles 2: Scarlet

Book Series: The Lunar Chronicles 2

Author: Marissa Meyer

Genres: Young-Adult, Futuristic, Re-telling, Sci-fi

Recommendation: 4.5 Stars

I liked it, a lot, I think more than Cinder, however for letting us hanging at the beginning in such a way, we wanted more of Kai and Cinder, and instead were greeted by a stranger, for that and for not grasping my attention as I know it should have been grasped, because of it, 4.5 of 5.

Now my thoughts on the whole thing, you will be surprised by how much I liked it.
