Hello, dearies!

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.

Victoria

‘Together with Victoria, a girl he has just met, he will start a fight of unexpected proportions. Their fate will be inexorably linked to the Resistance, a small group fighting for the freedom of a world called Idhún. Will he be able to restore the lost peace?’

Book: The Idhún Chronicles (Memorias de Idhún)

Main Character: Yes

Powers: Yes

Author of the Book: Laura Gallego

Hello there, dearies!

I had decided not to do one on Victoria from The Idhún Chronicles, but then I saw that this question existed: in the books the idhun chronicles is victoria in love with jack.

No, I’m not one to give spoilers at all, but I feel like I have to answer some doubts since I am basically an encyclopedia about Idhún. I do not get tired of talking about these books, thinking about what happened in them or re-reading them, and I have lost count of the times that I had picked up one of these books, opened it to any page and read from there.

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.

Anne Boleyn: A King’s Obsession

It didn’t go quite as I expected.

Author: Alison Weir

Genre: Historial Fiction, Tudor Period, Adult, Romance (so-so)

3 ⭐+ 1

Happy Weekend, dearies!

I hope I will make this clear and not ramble on too much. My feelings about Anne Boleyn: A King’s Obsession are mixed, and I mean that for real. I had the highest of hopes for this book, and it did not turn out as I expected it to be.

Let’s begin. 📜

Spoilers ahead if you don’t know the story behind Anne Boleyn or The Tudor Family.

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.

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

From Netflix directly to us

Genre: Romantic-fantasy

I cannot say how this one is going to turn out but I’ll try my best to not give out much of the story, so mild-spoilers ahead.

Ghosts of the Shadow Market: Learn About Loss

A short review but to the point. Another good story.

Book: Ghosts of the Shadow Market

Authors: Cassandra Clare & Kelly Link

This one is also super short, but it was a really good story too.

I don’t think there was one that I didn’t like in this compilation.

Ghosts of the Shadow Market: The Land I Lost

When Alec arrives, he is not welcomed by the Shadowhunters there. He believes it is because of his companion Lily, the head of the New York vampire clan, until a Shadowhunter orphan confides a dark secret to him under cover of the Shadow Market.

Book: Ghosts of the Shadow Market

Series: Shadowhunters. Shadow World

Authors: Cassandra ClareSarah Rees Brennan

Is going to be short, but I wanted to relay just how amazingly good it was, that even after reading all the Shadow World books there is still room for the little stories, and we will still love them all as if they were part of a series.

Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi

If you are here, I am going to assume that you know about Sekaiichi and Junjou Romantica because I know that not everyone watches these animes or reads the Manga. Today is about the Manga and a little bit about the Anime, a bit of a comparison might be seen farther ahead.
