Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: are we that old already?

Oh dear! Today is the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter [The Book Depository]. And it makes you wonder: are we that old already? Not really! Yes, it’s Harry Potter’s 20th anniversary, but it’s also the celebration of a great series that opened our minds! Slytherins of the world: we rock because we’ve been hissing during twenty years.

I started reading Harry Potter quite late. I also saw the movies with a delay too. However, arriving late to the party doesn’t mean that you cannot enjoy the magic. So, if you haven’t read Harry Potter yet, you can start now. Yup, never mind the twenty-year delay. (I know, I’m evil!)

ACOMAF: A Court of Mist and Fury review

Despite being super busy, I finished A Court of Mist and Fury [The Book Depository]. I won’t lie to you: there’s a lot of violence and fairy sex in ACOMAF. However, you can also find a great story of recovery from trauma. Some descriptions are brutal, others are too harsh, but if you keep it up, you’ll see that whatever harsh live treated you, there’s hope if you dare to dream.

This book is about recovering a broken heart, about recovering from trauma, and about discovering true love. Sometimes, you think someone is a hero, and then you discover he’s not. Other times, the villain happens to be the real hero of the story. Prepare yourself for surprises and role reversals in this book.

[You’ll find SPOILERS from this point onwards. If you haven’t read the book, stop reading at this point. If you don’t mind spoilers, go ahead and be my guest.]

The Midnight Sea by Kat Ross

Today we’re exploring The Midnight Sea [The Book Depository] Sea by Kat Ross. I read the book in just two days because I couldn’t stop myself! Yes, it’s that good! I found this jewel thanks to Kindle recommendations that I got in my mailbox every day.

The main character is a girl called Nazafareen. When her sister is killed by dark magic, she wants to become a Water Dog, a Druj hunter. First, she has to train for years, and then when the time comes, she’s linked with a daeva named Darius.

The Daeva are slaved Druj. Water Dogs use them and their powers to hunt and kill other Druj. Water Dogs and Daeva are linked by cuffs that bind their power. There’s just one tiny problem: she can feel whatever Darius is feeling too.

A Court of Thorns and Roses, aka ACOTAR

I finally read Sarah J. Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses [The Book Depository], aka ACOTAR. Even if the author inspired herself on the Beauty and the Beast, it shines on its own. Be prepared for some harsh moments, and quite a lot of brutal depictions of violence. You will also find some sex scenes, but I found violence more appalling than anything else.

This book is fast-paced, easy to read, and has an incredible hero: Feyre. If you’re looking to read a female-lead fantasy book with tons of action, deceit and memorable characters, this is it!

[SPOILERS: this review has some spoilers. If you haven’t read the book yet, I recommend you to stop reading beyond these lines.]

Leigh Bardugo’s Crooked Kingdom is a masterpiece!

I finished Leigh Bardugo’s Crooked Kingdom [The Book Depository], and I feel I can’t have enough of it! Unfortunately, this is a duology, and this means that the adventures of my favorite thieving group are over. Well, unless Leigh Bardugo decides to write yet another book.

Six of Crows was a tornado of emotions and action. Crooked Kingdom is an explosion that will enhance your sense and wished you had more “parem.” Just like Nina, I will have a withdrawal of this book.

[SPOILERS: this review has massive spoilers of this book. If you haven’t read it yet, please refrain from reading from here. I can just let you know that it’s a masterpiece that will leave you wanting more.]

Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows is a Masterpiece!

I finally finished Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows [The Book Depository]! I must tell you something: it’s a masterpiece! Despite having a few time to read, I managed to finish it before I had in mind. This is so good, you don’t want to sleep at night because you need to know what happens next! No wonder I already started reading Crooked Kingdom [The Book Depository].

What can I tell you that you haven’t read elsewhere? This is more than Ocean’s Eleven and Game of Thrones combined! This is the epiphany of fantasy and suspense mixed. It’s been a very long time since I’ve got hooked in this way with a book!

[SPOILERS: be advised, there are some spoilers ahead. Don’t worry; there aren’t enough of them as to crush your will to read this book.]

FairyLoot April Unboxing: Awesome Swag

Welcome to another FairyLoot unboxing! This time I’m unboxing all the awesome swag from April’s box. I must say that this subscription box becomes better by the minute! I had a wonderful time creating and editing the video. But it was hard for me to wait until unboxing it. This box was themed Dreams and Wishes. This was the perfect box for my birthday. In fact, it arrived just the next day. It was amazing!

I also decided to try the rep search from FairyLoot on Instagram. But, to be honest, with 800 entries, I think it’s going to be incredibly difficult to be noticed. But, the fun to just try is thrilling. Don’t you agree?

Currently reading: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

I cannot wait until I finish the book! Six of Crows [The Book Depository] is too good to be real! Not only I got hooked because this amazing Ocean’s Eleven has captivated my heart, but also because all the characters are flesh and bones. Six dangerous outcasts are on a mission: to break into an impenetrable fortress to save the world. Everybody says it’s an impossible heist. And yet, our six heroes will try the impossible, despite the odds, and themselves. They love each other and hate each other. So, I’m reading at a frenzy ratio to know if some of them are going to kiss or slit their throats open!

Joanne M. Harris Runemarks: you have to love Loki

You have to read Joanne M. HarrisRunemarks. If you love Loki, this is another great piece of literature on him. I read The Gospel of Loki time ago, and then I put my eyes onRunemarks. It’s a masterpiece. If you compare the sizes of The Gospel of Loki and Runemarks you’ll realize that Loki has been creating some mischief. One book is small, and the other is so big. Blame the trickster.

Be advised: there are mild SPOILERS ahead. But don’t be surprised to find tons of incredible mischief, chaos, and trouble. If you find Loki in a book, well, he sets up stuff to be frenzy.

The Sleeper and the Spindle, the review

I just read The Sleeper and the Spindle [The Book Depository] and it was glorious. I also purchased the audiobook on Audible and combining the two was the best thing ever!

This is a masterpiece by Neil Gaiman. This is a new fairy tale. I’m sure that just reading it is a pleasure. However, combining the book and the audiobook is completely perfect. The audio effects are amazing. I think that the book earns a new insight when combined with all the sounds.
