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.”

Ghosts of the Shadow Market: The Land I Lost

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

Alternative names: The World’s Greatest First Love: The Case of Ritsu Onodera (世界一初恋 〜小野寺律の場合〜, Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi: Onodera Ritsu no Baai)

Author: Shungiku Nakamura

Official site: 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.

origin book 2 burning shadow

The Burning Shadow

Series: Origin

Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Genre: Holy Alien Babies. Fiction. Drama. Supernatural. 

Alright so, I tried to stop and give you a briefing as I was reading this one like I did with The Darkest Star, but I started in Ch 19. You’ll just have to believe that before that moment, everything was good and I couldn’t stop reading; afterward, I forced myself to stop and put down the book (The Burning Shadow obviously) to write random (not so random) notes.

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.

Another one. I am sure you know this one. If you are a fan of Anime, Yaoi or Romance, or all of them together then you certainly have watched, heard about, read about or seen anything related to Junjo Romantica (Junjou Romantica in Spanish). I’ll make it quick.

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.
