The story is set in Tokyo, after bubbles that broke the laws of gravity rained down upon the world. Cut off from the outside world, Tokyo has become a playground for a group of young people who have lost their families, acting as a battlefield for parkour team battles as they leap from building to building.

Where? Netflix. 📺
What is it? A movie. 📽️
Genres: Post-apocalyptic, YA, adventure.
Alright, so I sometimes do Anime related ones here as you might know. And Bubble deserved an entry.
It’s one of the best animated movies I’ve watched in the past three years. So charming, so heart throbbing and heartbreaking, and lovely and wowing, all at the same time.

Hello, dearies! 💖
Almost the end of the year, and some of this time you think back to what you read, watched or did. Mostly you cannot remember or think it was not this year. For months I cannot remember what I did because it was a mesh of months for me.
But I can try to remember for you, and this top shows of 2022 that I watched.

Hello, dearies! ✉️
Did you watch it? Have you watched it yet?
Stranger Things Season 4 is now available, and all that promises it delivers, you can watch all of it now, or wait until July for the second part and binge-watch the whole season, I would have done that, but I couldn’t wait anymore, I wanted to see now, now, go, go.
It’s so good. And Jamie Campbell Bower is there, so he makes it all better. Like wherever he is, you are entranced by his role, and you want to know more about 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. 📝

Saga: Hush Hush
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Genres: YA, Romance, Fantasy, Supernatural, Fallen Angels
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.

Book: The Idhún Chronicles (Memorias de Idhún)
Main Character: 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
