This month I finished Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and I am actually already about 100 pages into Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows! I told myself I would wait until next month to start it but I couldn’t help myself…
Ah, the Half Blood Prince is a tricky one for me. One I love how this book advances the storyline whilst looking back through Lord Voldemort’s history. I think the lessons between Harry and Dumbledore are some of my favourite scenes in the series. Especially how much information we are being fed whilst still being in the realm of unknown. But again, the ending just kills me every time I read it. The first time I read the Half Blood Prince I actually had to put the book down and didn’t come back to it for a few days to finish it; definitely a few tears involved!
Dumbledore was always so integral to the overall plot line and a constant throughout the series that I almost didn’t think I could finish the series without him there. Spoiler the Deathly Hallows is without a doubt my favourite book of the series so I am glad I continued. This book is just a little bittersweet but also necessary, it just wouldn’t be the Harry Potter series if these events didn’t happen. I’m going to try and pace out my read of the Deathly Hallows and appreciate every sentence!
So I finally decided to pick up Daisy Jones and the Six and give it a try. I don’t know what it is about this book but ever since I first started hearing about it I just automatically assumed I wasn’t going to like it and I don’t know why. I absolutely loved The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo so why wouldn’t I also like another book Taylor Jenkins Reid has written? I’ve heard so many differing opinions and reviews on this book in particular because its so popular that I just have to read it and see what whether or not I agree with everyone… So far I am entertained, its a little jarring with everyone kind of introduced all at once and the jumping back and forth whilst speaking but I’m slowly getting situated! I guess I just have to keep reading to see why everyone went bonkers over this book!
Happy Reading 📚
I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I haven’t been utilising my local library…smh! I had a membership with them once upon a time but if you haven’t used it in the last 2 years it is revoked and its been at least 7/8 years since I’ve even stepped into the building! But I finally decided that enough is enough and went in and signed myself back up. It has gotten to the stage that there are sooooo many books that I am interested in but I’m not sure that I am going to like, so why would I buy it? If I do end up reading a book and I fall in love with it then I can buy it for myself, easy done! I thought why am I wasting my money buying complete series with 4/5 books if I’m not sure I am even going to like it? This is a very easy fix to a situation that I unnecessarily created… So with all that being said this is the haul of books that I loaned out for the next few weeks! I would really like to get to a few of them on top of my actual TBR for April but we will have to see how I go! 🙂
I am kind of procrastinating on this series now… I was sooo excited getting back into it again, rereading all the books and immersing myself back into the world of Harry Potter. But unfortunately the Order of the Phoenix just isn’t one of my favourites so it took me a little bit of time to pick it up. Granted it is still incredibly vital to the overall story and adds so much substance to the plot but the ending just kills me every time! I’m trying to go into it without any bias and see if I discover anything more out of the story that I would otherwise overlook because of my feeling towards this book and I will definitely keep you updated once I finish it, which should be by the end of this month!
I am beyond excited that I am finally getting around to reading this series!!! When I got back into reading about 4 or 5 years ago now I did a lot of research on fantasy series and what was highly rated and The Seven Realms series popped up on a lot of lists of people’s all time favourite fantasy series! They are all pretty lengthy books and I am so ready to dive into a new world full of hopefully diverse characters and a unique magic system with a lot of action and adventure thrown in the mix. I’ve heard nothing but great things about Cinda Williams Chima and her writing so I am already fully invested in these books!
