REREAD REVIEW: A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

8667848



In this tale of passion and obsession, Diana Bishop, a young scholar and a descendant of witches, discovers a long-lost and enchanted alchemical manuscript, Ashmole 782, deep in Oxford's Bodleian Library. Its reappearance summons a fantastical underworld, which she navigates with her leading man, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont.

*****
Hiya, fellas! Today I'm talking about a recent reread of mine. I read A Discovery of Witches around 4 years ago and I loved it. I loved the plot, the characters and even the science in it. I am not a big fan of science so when a book offers me something that I wouldn't usually read, I like it.

Mini-Reviews: Tyrant's Throne, Shadowblack and Charmcaster

Hello, fellas! I've been very lazy and absent recently because all I've been doing is reading, writing and watching anime but I also don't have any ideas for posts.

Today, I am finally here with some mini-reviews of the last three books by Sebastien de Castell that I finally read.

Annoying Things Non-Readers Have Said To Me


I haven't been active lately because I started reading, writing and watching anime very frequently and I also didn't have any ideas for blog posts. I have also been more active on Instagram than ever. If you'd like me to write some reading or writing posts/updates or whatever, just let me know by commenting below.

As for this post, I was inspired by a recent Instagram conversation I had with a stranger who basically told me that I wasn't reading the right books and that I, to my utter surprise, was living in a fantasy world. Now, I am a lot of things but delusional isn't one of them. Anyway, this is what inspired me to do this post and I hope you like it.

Q&A with Mira Monroe

  Hiya, fellas, a while back I beta read and then reviewed Mira Monroe's book Magick and I as well decided to interview her because I am curious about a lot of things about her book and about being an indie author. She is a very nice person and agreed to this. Thank you, Mira! ^^

April Wrap Up


Hiya fellas! I did my exam yesterday so I'm back! Today I'm sharing with you the books I read and the ones I couldn't finish. I read enough book this month but they are still less than I would have wanted to. It took me a lot of time to read some of them because I had to combine a lot of uni work and reading, I also had trouble with finding a good novel at the end of the month.

Mini-Reviews: Over Raging Tides and Hex Hall

Hiya, fellas! I'm here with some mini-reviews again.  I think I like these posts more and more. Do you? They are far easier to write and when I don't know how to write a nice and long review I just feel like writing something shorter instead.

Reflective Log (assessment)

   When I first started blogging four years ago I did not know anything about running a blog, how to get it out there or even writing reviews. I went through a lot of trials and errors which I believe helped me a lot in this assessment when it comes to my blog posts. The module proved to be more than helpful in teaching me how to run it.

Social Media Strategy (assessment)

   Considering the past experience I have from my Bulgarian blog, I decided to mainly use Facebook as a way of getting more traffic to my blog. I joined several book-related Facebook groups where I share my posts every time I publish them and that is how my blog gets the majority of its traffic.

Easter Break Recap (assessment)


Hey, fellas! Today I'm sharing another part of my university assessment. I was clearly not born to talk in front of a camera, I get all excited and start messing up my words. Anyway, at least you could find it funny to watch.

A Dream Come True (assessment)


  Today I'm going to literally talk about a dream come true. This is an audio piece I did for uni and it isn't as good as I hoped it'd be.

Mini Reviews: Aru Shah and the End of Time and Daughter of the Siren Queen

Hi, fellas! Today's post is about my auto-buy authors which basically means that I'm going to talk about writers whose books I buy on the spot without having to read the synopsis or reviews beforehand. I have several of them but I decided to share with you my Top Three and I may even do a part two in the future.

3 Books I Want To Re-Read


 I've been thinking a lot recently about some of the books I've read years ago and I concluded that there are some that I really want to read again. Here is a short list of novels that I want to reread.

REVIEW: Spellslinger by Sebastien de Castell

25181955


There are three things that earn you a man’s name among the Jan’Tep. The first is to demonstrate the strength to defend your family. The second is to prove you can perform the high magic that defines our people. The third is simply to reach the age of sixteen. I was a few weeks shy of my birthday when I learned that I wouldn’t be doing any of those things.

Magic is a con game.

Kellen is moments away from facing his first mage's duel and the start of four trials that will make him a spellcaster. There's just one problem: his magic is gone. As his sixteenth birthday approaches, Kellen falls back on his cunning in a bid to avoid total disgrace. But when a daring stranger arrives in town, she challenges Kellen to take a different path. Ferius Parfax is one of the mysterious Argosi - a traveller who lives by her wits and the three decks of cards she carries. She's difficult and unpredictable, but she may be Kellen's only hope...
 
  Sebastien de Castell quickly became one of my favourite authors after I read Traitor's Blade in September last year. Even tough Spellslinger wasn't as good as his debut novel, I still loved it despite the few problems I had with it.

REVIEW: Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi


Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zelie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls. 

But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were targeted and killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.


Now, Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good. 


Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers—and her growing feelings for the enemy.


I enjoyed Tomi Adeyemi's debut novel but the more I think about it, the more convinced I am that it just wasn't as good as everybody else made it be in my opinion. As you probably know already, I really dislike books written in present tense (and I keep stumbling across them!) because it (the tense) makes it very hard for me to connect to the characters, especially when I can't relate to them.

Mini-Reviews: Obsidio, Hero at the Fall, School for Good and Evil, Wisps of Memory


   Hello, fellas! Are you in the mood for some mini-reviews? If not, that's a shame since this is what I'm doing today. I'm really bad at writing short reviews but I'm trying to review almost every book I read and when I don't want to go into details about a certain novel I'll be doing these mini-reviews. I kinda like them.

  Anyway, let's get started.

March Wrap Up


  Hello, fellas, it's time for my March Wrap Up! I read 7 books last month and I even wanted to count Children of Blood and Bone as read in March but I finished it on the 1st of April so I decided not to cheat.
