Hype Or Like Friday: 3 Magical Items From Harry Potter World I Wish I Have

image

Hype or Like Friday is a meme created by JillLarkin, and Britt to discuss about hyped books and see if they’re hyped up or not. There would be book of the month that you can read, and then post your review for it on the end of the month, then rate it whether it’s a hype it or like it.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the book of the month.

For this week, topic is:

“If you could choose 3 magical items from any Harry Potter book, which would you choose and why? Explain what you would do with them and how you would use them to your advantage.”

I love the topic for this week, so here goes my 3 magical items:

1. Marauder’s Map

image

I need this in my life..😭 Like badly! I honestly haven’t met someone who has a worse sense of direction than I am.. Well except him👇

image

…but let’s not talk about fictional characters that I love sooo much.😻

Anyway, as much as possible I need to have visited the place at least thrice before you can let loose of me alone in an area..✌ This item will be very helpful.😁

“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good… Mischief managed.”

2. Time Turner

image

Oh. My. Heart.😍

All the books I can read if I have this…💜

image

I really love the concept of time travel! And it can’t hurt that this necklace looks fab.💜👍

“You cannot be seen.”

3. My Own Wand

image

This is my most coveted magical item on this list.😍

All the spells.🙌 Nuff said.😛

Expecto Patronum.” – my fave spell

TBR Finds (August5)

Hey, I decided to just stick with TBR Finds as title for my recent book finds.😘

There’s a lot of books I’ve been adding on my goodreads this week and here are the ones I’m most excited for. Title links to their respective goodreads page:

1. The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic

image

Neil Josten is the newest addition to the Palmetto State University Exy team. He’s short, he’s fast, he’s got a ton of potential—and he’s the runaway son of the murderous crime lord known as The Butcher.

Signing a contract with the PSU Foxes is the last thing a guy like Neil should do. The team is high profile and he doesn’t need sports crews broadcasting pictures of his face around the nation. His lies will hold up only so long under this kind of scrutiny and the truth will get him killed.

2. Cities by Carla de Guzman

image

Celia has dreams. 
She dreams of going to Seoul for that scholarship she never took, of leaving everything behind and moving to New York. 
In all those dreams, she finds herself attached to Benedict, the boy she has always loved, who didn’t love her back. 

Ben believes in parallel worlds. 
Worlds where the things you didn’t do come true—worlds where he went to London and fell in love with Celia, where he shows up on the day she needed him most. He believes that dreams are glimpses into that parallel world, and it’s not a coincidence that Celia’s been having them too. 

3. The Next Together by Lauren James

image

How many times can you lose the person you love? 

Katherine and Matthew are destined to be born again and again, century after century. Each time, their presence changes history for the better, and each time, they fall hopelessly in love, only to be tragically separated. 

Spanning the Crimean War, the Siege of Carlisle and the near-future of 2019 and 2039 they find themselves sacrificing their lives to save the world. But why do they keep coming back? What else must they achieve before they can be left to live and love in peace? 

4. Fear My Mortality by Everly Frost

image

In a world where people are invulnerable to illness and death, with lives spanning hundreds of years, a sixteen-year-old becomes witness to the impossible – her brother’s failure to regenerate after death after which she suspects that she too may be mortal.

5. A Week Of Mondays by Jessica Brody

image

As far as Mondays go, it doesn’t get much worse than this. And Ellie is positive that if she could just do it all over again, she would get it right. So when she wakes up the next morning to find she’s reliving theexact same day, she knows what she has to do: stop her boyfriend from breaking up with her. But it seems no matter how many do-overs she gets or how hard Ellie tries to repair her relationship, Tristan always seems bent set on ending it. Will Ellie ever figure out how to fix this broken day? Or will she be stuck in this nightmare of a Monday forever?

6. The Academy by Emmaline Andrews

image

My name is Kris Jameson and I’m a student at the Royal Academy. I’m at the top of all my classes, what they call a “model student.” There’s only one problem—the Academy is an all boys school and I’m a girl.

🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦

I found a lot of gems this week. 😍

How’s everyone’s book hunt? My TBR pile is increasing but I just can’t stop..😁

Happy weekend!😘

TBR Finds (July29)

There’s a lot of books I’ve been adding on my goodreads this week and here are some of them. Title links to their respective goodreads page:

1. The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons

image

The golden skies, the translucent twilight, the white nights, all hold the promise of youth, of love, of eternal renewal. The war has not yet touched this city of fallen grandeur, or the lives of two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha Metanova, who share a single room in a cramped apartment with their brother and parents. Their world is turned upside down when Hitler’s armies attack Russia and begin their unstoppable blitz to Leningrad.

2. Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat

image

Damen is a warrior hero to his people, and the truthful heir to the throne of Akielos, but when his half brother seizes power, Damen is captured, stripped of his identity and sent to serve the prince of an enemy nation as a pleasure slave.

Beautiful, manipulative and deadly, his new master Prince Laurent epitomizes the worst of the court at Vere. But in the lethal political web of the Veretian court, nothing is as it seems, and when Damen finds himself caught up in a play for the throne, he must work together with Laurent to survive and save his country. 

3. Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson

image

Odea Donahue has been able to travel through people’s dreams since she was six years old. Her mother taught her the three rules of walking: Never interfere. Never be seen. Never walk the same person’s dream more than once. Dea has never questioned her mother, not about the rules, not about the clocks or the mirrors, not about moving from place to place to be one step ahead of the unseen monsters that Dea’s mother is certain are right behind them.

4. Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi

image

Aria has lived her whole life in the protected dome of Reverie. Her entire world confined to its spaces, she’s never thought to dream of what lies beyond its doors. So when her mother goes missing, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland long enough to find her are slim.

Then Aria meets an outsider named Perry. He’s searching for someone too. He’s also wild – a savage – but might be her best hope at staying alive.

5. The Dreamer by E.J. Mellow

image

Molly hasn’t slept well since the night of her twenty-fourth birthday. Being struck by lightning might have something to do with it, but then again, her chicken didlook a little undercooked at dinner. Whatever the culprit, her life quickly catapults from mundane to insane as, night after night, Molly is transported through her once dreamless sleep to a mysterious land illuminated by shooting stars.

There she meets the captivating but frustrating Dev, and together they discover Molly possesses a power coveted by his people—the ability to conjure almost anything she desires into existence. Seduced by the possibilities of this gift, Molly shifts her attention from waking life toward the man, the magic, and the world found in her dreams.

6. Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

image

Gwyneth Shepherd’s sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth, who in the middle of class takes a sudden spin to a different era!

Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon–the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential.

August is approaching… July passed by sooo fast. Ugh… I need more time to read.😭

That book entitled You-Know-What is about to be released.. 😻

Hype Or Like Friday: Hyped Books You DNF

image

Hype or Like Friday is a meme created by JillLarkin, and Britt to discuss about hyped books and see if they’re hyped up or not. There would be book of the month that you can read, and then post your review for it on the end of the month, then rate it whether it’s a hype it or like it.

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller is the book of the month.

For this week, topic is Hyped Books You DNF.

I haven’t been that active on this goodreads group.✌ But I love the topic for this week, so even if it’s a bit late, here goes the Hyped Books I DNFed.

image

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
–  I’ve been trying sooo hard to finish this book. The main characters (Clary and Jace and Simon) are sooo annoying. But I really want to finish this. Hopefully by the end of the year, I’m done with this book. Wish me luck.😘

image

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
– the Door, bow.😭 The world isn’t interesting for me. This was my first Neil Gaiman book and so far the only one. I have Coraline, The Graveyard Book(?)and others on my shelf and TBR but I’m hesitant because of Neverwhere. Maybe someday?😮

image

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green
– I didn’t have an issue on this book. It just so happens that a very helpful friend of mine spoiled me on the ending. I hate spoilers. I haven’t seen the movie and still trying to NOT remember the ending. But maybe, I’ll never read this.😿

image

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
– I don’t know why I stopped reading this book. I think I wasn’t in the mood for YA contemporary that time. I don’t usually reach for books on this genre but it was so hyped that I tried it and fail.😿

image

Anna And The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
– Same with To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, not in the mood for this kind of book but because of the hype…😑 I didn’t like the tone and feel of the story. I can’t relate to the main character – Anna. There.✌

❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

My internet connection was cut yesterday, that’s why I’m cramming a lot of supposed Friday posts today.😁

I knew I should’ve scheduled them.😿

Happy weekends😘

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Facts About Me

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, in which we all talk about a bookish topic and have fun making lists.

The topic for the week is Ten Facts About Me. I was hesitant to do this but I had fun doing my list so, here goes:

1.) I have the worst sense of direction ever, lol. I always travel with someone so that I won’t get lost.:oops:

2.) I have a bit of OCD-ish tendencies. I’m crazy with locks. I need to check at least thrice that it’s locked before I’m satisfied😛

3.) When I was in college, my classmates always thought I’m a freshman – every single year. I’m 4’11” (just one more inch).😣

4.) I love reading mangas and watching animé. When I’m in a reading slump, they’re my life savers..👍

5.) My favorite food and drinks’
– pesto, burger, pizza, chocolates
– anything potato: french fries, boiled potato, mashed potato…
– mango, melon
– soda, fruit shakes

6.) I have this unusual obsession with buying new notebooks. I have a lot and majority of them are still unused.

7.) Cooking and gardening are things I wish to do given a chance and free time.

8.) I love stories about princes, princesses, kings, queens and other royalties out there. Some of the books with this concept almost have the same premise but I really LOVE them.😍

9.) I don’t read or watch anything HORROR. I’m a scaredy cat. I just can’t stand them.👻

10.) Places I want to visit:
– Japan, Paris, New York, Italy, Egypt, New Zealand

🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦🍦
It feels weird to talk about myself😸

Anyway, happy Tuesdays.🙋
