A story of love and demons, family and witchcraft.

Nova Huang knows more about magic than your average teen witch. She works at her grandmothers’ bookshop, where she helps them loan out spell books and investigate any supernatural occurrences in their New England town.

One fateful night, she follows reports of a white wolf into the woods, and she comes across the unexpected: her childhood crush, Tam Lang, battling a horse demon in the woods. As a werewolf, Tam has been wandering from place to place for years, unable to call any town home.

Pursued by dark forces eager to claim the magic of wolves and out of options, Tam turns to Nova for help. Their latent feelings are rekindled against the backdrop of witchcraft, untested magic, occult rituals, and family ties both new and old in this enchanting tale of self-discovery.

City of Fallen Angels/Lost Souls/Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

Hi guys! So, as you probably know already, I’m not a big fan of TMI, but I wanted to read them anyway since I already owned them… So I ended up participating in a read-along done by Emmabooks for them to make it happen.

I read:

city-of-fallen-angels51anMWgLi4L._SX324_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg9781406355819

  • City of Fallen Angels: Apr 15 – May 5
  • City of Lost Souls: Jun 3 – Jun 30
  • City of Heavenly Fire: July 29 – Aug 25

Since I started by not enjoying this books that much, I decided to do mini-reviews for each, kinda like a likes/dislikes type of thing for each. But that kinda changed in the last two books because I really liked them… So yeah, it’s just a collective review of the end of the series…

I’m incredibly happy I finally read this series because the last two books were awesome! they really surprised me and actually made me incredibly interested in everything that was happening! I can’t say it’s my favorite series but it is worth the read.

*Hope you enjoy my reviews!*

TTT: Books That Awaken the Travel Bug In Me

Captura de ecrã 2018-02-06, às 11.19.18

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 out of a love of lists. It recently changed to That Artsy Reader Girl and that’s where you can find the topics for each Tuesday.

This week’s topic is:

Books That Awaken the Travel Bug In Me

 

This is an awesome topic! I missed last weeks topic because DNF books are just not my thing, and I wouldn’t have much to talk about. Plus, I had another post I wanted to put on my blog that day so… Yeah, that happened. But this topic, and in general, topics like this, I’m a fan of and I definitely want to share my book experiences with you guys!

There’s many I would love to talk about and for sure many I must be forgetting, but I will focus on 10 books. I have a mix of historical fiction books, contemporary books, fantasy and even classics. They are mostly set in different countries and I would love to see if you guys have read any of these books or are interested in any of the countries I mentioned!

Which books awaken the travel bug in you? To which countries?

First published April 24th, 2018
Genres: YA, Contemporary
Pages: 339
Format: Paperback
Buy: Book Depository | Amazon

Leah Burke – girl-band drummer, master of deadpan, and Simon Spier’s best friend from the award-winning Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda – takes center stage in this novel of first love and senior-year angst.

When it comes to drumming, Leah Burke is usually on beat – but real life isn’t always so rhythmic. An anomaly in her friend group, she’s the only child of a young, single mum, and her life is decidedly less privileged. And even though her mom knows she’s bisexual, she hasn’t mustered the courage to tell her friends – not even her openly gay BFF, Simon.

So Leah really doesn’t know what to do when her rock-solid friend group starts to fracture in unexpected ways. With prom and college on the horizon, tensions are running high. It’s hard for Leah to strike the right note while the people she loves are fighting-especially when she realizes she might love one of them more than she ever intended.
