Rereading: The Mortal Instruments

Rereading_Hi everyone!

Today, I want to talk to you about my experience rereading two series I love with all my heart, but especially one of them. I had decided, this year, to begin a reread of The Shadowhunter Chronicles as to finally catch up with the series. Back in 2014, I read City of Heavenly Fire on the day it came out and finished it that same day. I’d reread the five previous book to prepare for the conclusion. The Mortal Instruments was my favourite series, it held such an important place in my heart (my friends could tell you, I talked about it a lot). And then, I don’t know what happened. I didn’t pick up the next book in the series, and I didn’t continue on with it. I genuinely cannot explain it, knowing how much this universe meant to me. It’ll always be a mystery to me. But the past few months, I’ve felt my heart pulling me back to the Shadowhunter universe, and that’s how I got here.

First Lines Friday

First Lines FridayHappy Friday!

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page.
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first.
  • Finally… reveal the book!

So let’s go !Read More »

Top 5 Wednesday: Spring Reads

Top 5 Wednesday_ Spring Reads(1)Happy Wednesday!

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme and you can find everything about it on the goodreads group! It’s my first time participating and I was really inspired by this week’s theme: Spring reads. I’ve decided to share with you my top 5 books/series I want to read this spring 💚 These books are the top 5 but they’re not in particular order because by now, you probably know I’m terrible at choosing favourites.

  1. City of Fallen Angels, City of Lost Souls and City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare

Sans titre(9)I started my reread of The Mortal Instruments this month and I have read the first three books already. Rereading this series has truly been like coming home for me; it was comforting to get back into a series I loved but haven’t read in years and going on adventures with characters I love with all my heart. I definitely want to continue this journey this spring with the second half of this series!Read More »

ARC Review: Off Planet by Aileen Erin

Off Planet Review (1)Happy Monday!

At the end of February, I was very surprised to receive an email from Netgalley saying I had received for my first ever ARC! So thank you so much to Netgalley for providing me with a free digital advance reader’s copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinions and rating in any way and of course, the review will be spoiler-free.
As you know, I have been meaning to read more science-fiction, so I was intrigued by this book from the moment I read the synopsis. A futuristic story with space travel and aliens? Of course I was in.

Why I mostly read ebooks

5 reasons why I mostly read ebooksHappy Sunday!

I’ve been wondering for a while if I was going to write this post or not because for some reason I was worried but I decided to write it anyway. I want to start by saying I’m only going to talk about my own experience and my personal reasons for mostly reading ebooks, but I’m in no way saying other ways of reading books are bad. To me, reading in all its forms is great, whether it be physical books (hardback or paperback), audio books, graphic novels, that 120k words fanfiction you read last night … I’ll never judge anyone for reading in their preferred format and genre. For me personally, ebooks really changed a lot of things in terms of reading, and I simply wanted to talk about it; it’s also a way to explain the lack of pictures with physical books I could have taken on my blog you might be wondering about. So without further ado, let’s get started!
