Wrap Up #September2021

Welcome, welcome October! *cameras click as October walks on the red carpet*

We are so happy you came! We call September to step down and hand the crown to October!

*September does so quite happily (and grudgingly) as she steps down the throne and gives her crown and place to October* (who ever said September is a girl? IDK but the name itself gives feminine vibes. SePTemBeR!)

*October starts speaking*

”Well, to all the months of the year, thank you for all being here today! I am greatly honored to be part of you eleven and for having my own 31 days in a year to rule….”

Instead of writing October’s speech (which is very long), we will just proceed with the wrap up!😁. No offense October but your speech and my wrap up together will be a very long post indeed…

BTW, all links are the reviews I posted.

BTW, DON’T YOU DARE SHOUT AT ME FOR POSTING THIS THAT LATE!! I WAS EXTREMELY BUSY THIS MONTH…

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig (Fiction)

The Midnight Library
Source: Goodreads

My Ratings: 4/5

Rating: 4 out of 5.

We will keep things short over here…well, I am jealous of Nora. She literally visited a magical library and I want to go there. But I really recommend this, it is really a book that gets you thinking. In a good way.

The Metal Heart by Caroline Lea (Historical Fiction)

The Metal Heart: A Novel of Love and Valor in World War II
Source: Goodreads

My Ratings: 4/5

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This book is full of emotions and love and bravery and courage and the beautiful things we do for the people we love…recommend this if you like historical fiction.

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo Shadow and Bone #1(Fantasy)

Shadow and Bone (The Shadow and Bone Trilogy, #1)
Source: Goodreads

My Ratings: 5/5

Rating: 5 out of 5.

What do I have to say about this? Leigh Bardugo and her writing amazes me. I cannot believe that this book is a work created by her. Like the worldbuilding, the plot, the way she wrote the book, the way she explains the Grisha so well and the way she created the very first villain I (don’t insert fell in love here) ever took a liking for. This series is a masterpiece.

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo Shadow and Bone #2 (Fantasy)

Siege and Storm (The Shadow and Bone Trilogy, #2)
Source: Goodreads

My Ratings: 5/5

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Can we say that I TOTALLY SHIP ALINA AND THE DARKLING TOGETHER!! THEY WERE DESTINED FOR EACH OTHER BEFORE THEY WERE EVEN BORN!!!!!

Miss Leigh…you CANNOT GIVE ME A PROTAGONIST WITH THE POWER OF LIGHT AND AN ANTAGONIST WITH THE POWER OF THE DARKNESS AND NOT EXPECT ME TO SHIP THEM!!!!!

The problem, I have a crush on The Darkling now and I totally ship him with Alina…cannot believe I just wrote that.

With btw, brings my total number of crushes to 3 (all of them fictional). We have one demon, another demon and a villain. I probably have good taste…😎😏😂

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo Shadow and Bone #3(Fantasy)

Ruin and Rising (The Shadow and Bone Trilogy, #3)
Source: Goodreads

My Ratings: 5/5

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Oh…Okay, I should probably hold on to my tears now. The ending killed me in such a way that I am still alive and suffering on earth because of those last pages…

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (Fantasy)

Six of Crows (Six of Crows, #1)
Source: Goodreads

My Ratings: 5/5

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Cannot believe the cover is like SiX DANgerouS OutCasTS ONe dEADly HeiST and the book is like…my ghost won’t associate with your ghost…Matthias wondered whether the sea air was rotting his brain…

Pretty sure it isn’t word for word but you get the idea…and Matthias I was wondering about that too…

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (Fantasy)

Crooked Kingdom (Six of Crows, #2)
Source: Goodreads

My Ratings: 5/5

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Fine…the ending left me wanting more? Miss Leigh, for everyone’s sake, you could have written AT LEAST a page more. Like, I want to know what Kaz told them, how Inej acted, their reactions….I WANT TO KNOW but I guess it is part of you make-all-your-readers-suffer plan.

I NEED MORE OF THISSSSS.

What I Plan To Read Next:.

Probably something spooky or some fantasy. I am feeling in that mood…


Life Update: Well, nothing interesting happened to be honest.

  • It was my sister’s birthday this month. So yeah, that’s basically it.
  • I read 5 books that became my favourite. So Miss Leigh ACTUALLY knows how to work magic on books. I suspect she is actually a Grisha herself. That wouldn’t be surprising if it was true.
  • My best friend and my other best friend (we are three) had a fight and AS USUAL I have to find myself between them. All of it is solved now.
  • Cried a lot because of Ruin and Rising but again, I think this is part of Miss Leigh’s, make-all-your-readers-suffer plan…*sighs* Of course, it isn’t like you can just turn a character into a bat and make it live in a cursed cave forever…
  • I fell because stupid me decided to try to ride my bike with my damned eyes closed. *shakes her head at herself for this insane stupidity* What the heck was I trying to do?

September Goals Review:

  • Read at least 8-10 books.❌
  • Complete that Design and Technology project (AND MAKE SURE YOU GET GOOD MARKS GURL. UNDER 90 ISN’T ACCEPTABLE) ✅
  • Don’t waste your time Spend less time doing silly things (like secretly watching YouTube because you are bored) ❌
  • And do what makes you happy (even if this includes staring at the dark ceiling at night thinking of useless things or sending stupid texts to your best-friends like arguing whether the moon landing is fake or if Area 51 has aliens or if we are just aliens from another planet that have conquered the Earth and living on it for like 100 000 years. 🧐Not sure about that..

October Goals:

  • Read more than 5 books.
  • Find a miraculous way to balance life, school and blogging. THAT MEANS I HAVE TO POST AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK!
  • Don’t close my eyes while riding a bike the next time.

So, that is all!

Well, September was a lovely month.

Does anyone of you know how time-turners are made? That question just popped in my head and I really want to know?

BTW, how was your month? What did you read? Did you fall off your bike? No, of course not. I must be crazy.

Well, it is October now. *snorts* You already know that.

Finally I am posting this. I hate being late. See ya next time with another post!

And don’t forget to comment, I love talking to you guys!

A Letter To All The Fictional Characters (thanks so much lil’ dark corners for always being here…I’d better go hide now)

To all of those people who live inside books this letter is dedicated to you:


To,

Those fictional characters who have ruined changed my whole life.

First of all, you don’t know so many things.

And you are a nuisance but I hate to admit that I also love you all as well.

I would also like to thank all of you for changing me that I am not sure what is my pure self like anymore. Why? One day I just realized that I am just a collection of bits and pieces thrown here and there into my personality. Like I am all of my favourite characters blended into one person. Like I picked little parts of your personality traits that I loved best and took them to be my own.

It is actually very scary when I think how my mind would have worked/thought and how different my personality would have been if hadn’t done the above. I cannot imagine my own self before I started reading books. Like I never even existed at all. I cannot think of what I did during the day if I wasn’t making up funny scenes in my head of book characters; thinking about books; suddenly remembering a random quote or detail that I had never thought about…

Was I even alive? I should have been.

But I guess this is the pain of being a reader. But being a reader is much better than not being a reader.

Do you know how boring real life is? We don’t get the chance to go on interesting adventures, save the world from a Dark Lord, or steal back the lost treasure from a feared dragon, or go on a quest to destroy one of the most powerful rings, or even have to chance to go to magic school…

AND THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE WHINING BECAUSE THEY DON’T WANT TO FINISH SNAPE’S ESSAY!

Are you serious Harry and Ron? Just try to ‘muggle homework’ and you’ll see how boring it is (except math). I would do ANYTHING to go to Hogwarts and I can’t believe how you take magic school for granted.

IF I WAS IN YOUR PLACE, I WOULD HAVE DONE ALL THE HOMEWORK, WOKE UP EARLY IN THE MORNING, NEVER FEEL BORED IN CLASS (even history of magic). Can you believe how lucky you are? We people have never got a chance to even go to Hogwarts. What you learn over there is a million times better than muggle school.

In some ways, I actually envy all of you and I don’t want all of you fictional characters to be real, I want to be fictional and join you in some mysterious adventure. Like, can you imagine what fun it will be? And weird? A twelve year old girl from the real world into your worlds? And in your worlds, there will be books and when we enter those books, we will be transported into another world, in that other world, there will be other books and we will enter other fictional worlds and it just continues…

…until we lose ourselves totally in books and when we reach the last chapter, we come back to the real world and it is like time hasn’t passed at all. Just imagine if this was possible.

If it was, then I could bring all of you into the real world and life would be interesting and then you could go back to your world when the book reaches the last sentence. (in the fictional worlds, there are books about our real world where we are the fictional characters inside and I guess the story of our lives is actually interesting to them…)

Just imagine how life would be not boring at all?

Thanks for all you did you me (includes suffering and breakdowns),

Hermione


What did I just write above? I mean, obviously, it is a very embarrassing letter to all those fictional characters.

Well, mom, if you are reading this, then let all be erased from your mind, this is definitely very embarrassing. LIKE REALLY EMBARASSING. Just don’t tell me you have read this, I will die from embarrassment. I am already dying from embarrassment right now.

And it feels like I just exposed my bare soul to all of you…I deeply regret this. I regret this very much. Now all of you know…what? Well, all of the above. I hate myself for writing this.

LIKE I JUST PULLED OUT MY BEATING HEART AND PUT IT UNDER THE SWORD FOR YOU TO CUT IT INTO TWO…

*dies from oversaturation and choking on thick embarrassment*

*Hermione’s ghost tries to put her soul back to her body and succeeds. Miracle really!*

Why did I even do this?

Well, so there is my letter to the characters who have much more interesting lives than my existence and if you have reached here…then thanks I guess *deeply embarrassed* for reading until here. At least you know now that I am an unhealthy overthinker and obsessed over books and fictional characters with a very high level of unusual weirdness.

*chokes again*

I have never felt so embarrassed in my whole life before. Not since the day I accidentally fell asleep in class dreaming and when I woke up, everybody was staring at me and the teacher…well…let us skip this part shall we. I was still very little at that time.

Since, I am filled with regrets, I should probably go and hide and come out an eternity later…I love you, darkness, my best friend. I won’t be able to live without you. You are my best-friend…🖤

Giphy

BTW, GEORGE.R.R. MARTIN IF YOU EVER DARE KILL JON SNOW IN YOUR BOOKS…I WILL NEVER EVER EVER…FORGIVE YOU.😑

DON’T YOU DARE…😡🤬👿💀👾

Now, puh-lease, all of you who have reached here, forget everything. I mean, that is probably unnecessary

Wrap Up #June2021

Hey bookish people! Hope your month was as great as mine! Compared to last month (May) I have read way more books this month! Yay me😍!!

I have also discovered books which are now considered as one of my all-time favourite and I am awfully glad I read them.💛. Let’s get on. BTW!! I think this is my best month of all my time blogging. I have been much more present on my blog and I have read a ton of BOOKS! And most of the books have breathtaking covers!

To all the books in the world, I know this is weird but I love you all so much!💜🤍💜 I’m very very very happy you all exist!

Wrap Up #August

I must admit, I haven’t posted much this August.I was so busy again with homework us pupils…seemed like we were bombarded non-stop with tests by our teachers and it is still the case in September too! Another big problem was that I couldn’t go to the library for a week and I didn’t even get time to exchange during lunch time with revising before tests…

But the bright side of August is that we got our report sheets and report books and I was first in class! But I still guess I have to work harder because having 93.6% over hundred as average marks isn’t enough. The thing I really messed up was P.E. I really hate P.E because I am so bad at it and I got 70 over 100 so I am quite very bad among a class of 38 students where nearly everyone loves sports. Duh! Why I am so crappy at sports?

So let us continue…I am sure this list will be short.

Remember Me Vol 1 by Christopher Pike

Remember Me & The Return Part I by Christopher Pike

This was a really nice story that I borrowed from my school library and if you really like YA and a little touch of crime, I would really recommend reading this book.

Remember Me Vol 2 by Christopher Pike

Remember Me: Volume Two: The Return Part II and The Last Story ...
Source: Amazon

Also amazing end to the story. Only that one tip, do not read this review if you wanna read the series, it may contain some spoilers that may ruin the first book. Really enjoyable!

Final Friends Vol 1 by Christopher Pike

Final Friends: Pike, Christopher: 9781444901306: Amazon.com: Books

Same this also contains suspense and crime and I would highly recommend reading this book. The only little problem is that Vol 2 seems to be already extinct in my school library!😂😂

J’ai vraiment aimé ce livre. C’était vraiment sympa et je le recommanderais, mais ce n’est pas mon préféré. La seule chose qui manque est mon personnage préféré de Dan Brown, Robert Langdon à mon avis. Un joli livre!

Remember Me Volume 1

Shari Cooper is dead. During her friend’s birthday party, she fell off the balcony. Mysteriously pushed by some unknown person off the balcony she was standing on, Shari vows to find her killer.

While watching her own funeral, Shari finds her dead friend, Peter Nichols. Shari also encounters her Shadow, the scariest thing she has ever seen…

With the help of Peter, Shari tries all she can to find her killer. When she tries to contact her friends using the ouija board she and Peter sense another force another energy interfering…

The Return Part 1

Shari Cooper has been given the chance to return to Earth among the living as a Wanderer, in the body of another girl, Jean Rodriguez, a poor girl living with her mother and her siblings.

The only problem is that Shari Cooper, now in the body of Jean Rodriguez, doesn’t even remember that she was once dead and is now back on Earth among the living…

My ratings: 4/9

Rating: 5 out of 5.

If I have to describe this book, there are so many words I could use to describe it. But for now I will only say that it was beautifully written and AMAZING!! I will definitely read other books by Christopher Pike. I was planning to read Final Friends yet but I guess the book in my school library seems to be borrowed by someone else before I even get there! Anyway, I still have to read Part 2 of Remember Me and as I said in my previous post, my book is still where I have hidden it, as long as other students don’t go peeking in the abandoned bookshelf I hid it in. It was the best place I could find and I was shocked myself to find out that somebody else had used my hiding place to hide one of the Twilight series book, Eclipse, there!

Maybe I should end there itself or otherwise you will all die of boredom. One thing I am sure of is that whenever someone talks to me about books, I end up speaking a lot more than listening to what they have to say😂.

See you again soon!

Hermione

Wrap Up #July

Welcome back everyone for this new post. It is a bit disappointing that I haven’t been able to post a lot this month because of some very good news…on the 1st of July, I was back to school! Yes confinement in Mauritius has been over for a good amount of time and studying and tests make it difficult for me to read my usual amount of books and post about them. TIME!!

Well well, I have read only um… 5 books. Duh! I also read Remember Me Volume 1 by Christopher Pike on Tuesday but I was behind on writing the reviews so I didn’t get much time. This is a book I borrowed in my school library and guess what I did?

I HID THE PART TWO IN AN ABANDONED AND DUSTY BOOKSHELF SO THAT NOBODY COULD TAKE IT!

I must admit, I would go to any lengths to be able to keep a book for myself. Fortunately it is still hidden safely where I have put it…luckily…

…and there is no need to remind me…because I know that I am very not-so-nice.😶

By the way, goodbye for now!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows-A Book Review

Name: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Author: J.K Rowling

Genre: Adventure, fantasy, magic

Harry Potter | Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Book 7 ...
Cover picture from Bloomsbury

No more calling Privet Drive his home, Harry is in danger from You-Know-Who and the outside world. With the help of Mad-Eye Moody and other Order members, they hatch a plan. There will be seven Potters flying to the different Voldemort-safe place where the Order members have put protective charms.

The real Harry Potter gets into the side-car motorbike with Hagrid while the other six Potters will be going on brooms, and thestrals.

Unfortunately, miraculously, Voldemort is on his way along with a few death eaters who try to kill Harry Potter. Unluckily, George Weasley loses an ear, Mad-Eye Moody is killed and the real Harry Potter and Hagrid crash in the yard of the Tonks family.

With the help of a Portkey, Harry and Hagrid arrive at the Burrow in time.

Harry, Ron, and Hermione help with the decorations for Bill and Fleur’s wedding leaving them no time for planning their search for Horcruxes (an object where part of a human’s soul is concealed within).

Unfortunately, Bill and Fleur’s wedding is spoiled by the Death Eaters who crash the celebration. Harry, Ron, and Hermione flee and take refuge in Grimmauld Place, which now belongs to Harry, given to him by Sirius, his now dead godfather.

Now Harry, Ron, and Hermione have to work together in their search for the Horcruxes. Which will prove to be very difficult. With very meagre plans and clues.

My ratings:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Lovely story and of course I highly recommend this book to others. Strange thing is that I have the faintest suspicion that this book is the favourite of J.K Rowling. The way she writes and the excitement you get to want to know more about the story is incredible.

Thanks for reading

Reached at London, Grimmauld Place and Harry learns that this place is the Headquarters for the Order of the Phoenix and it belongs to his godfather, Sirius Black.

One night, Harry dreams that he is a snake and that he attacked Mr. Weasley. He informs Professor McGonagall, who informs Dumbledore.

Harry is informed that he will be having Occlumency lessons to shut his mind against You-Know-Who, with Professor Snape.

After, a few lessons, Harry feels his mind getting worse and worse and he still cannot shut his mind from those dreams. Especially the one with him, walking through the long dark corridor, to the Department Of Mysteries…

My ratings:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

It was lovely and amazing but when Harry’s godfather died it was NOT. It was sad at the end and I found an immense pleasure when Harry was breaking down Dumbledore’s office.😃

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire-A Book Review

Name: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Author: J.K Rowling

Genre: Adventure, Fantasy, Magic

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire: J.K. Rowling: Bloomsbury ...
Cover picture from Bloomsbury

Down come the Weasley family through the chimney at the Dursleys. ‘’Come on Harry, we are taking you with us to the Quidditch World Cup. Where is your trunk?’’

…and just before leaving, to their horror, Dudley grew a four-foot-long tongue…

Harry and the Weasley family reach The Burrow by Floo powder. Hermione Granger is also there. They enjoy the holidays until the day comes when they have to go.

Woken up early, the Weasley brothers, Mr Arthur Weasley, Harry, and Hermione set off by foot, waving goodbye to Mrs Weasley. They travel by a Portkey and reach the camp site. They set up their tent and try to make a fire.

Harry, Ron, and Hermione set off together to buy souvenirs before the match starts, Ireland vs. Bulgaria.

Of course, Ireland wins but Victor Krum, the Bulgarian seeker, gets the Snitch.

During the night, screams and shouts are heard, the Dark Mark has appeared in the sky, the symbol of You-Know-Who. Harry loses his wand and in the forest, they hear a strange voice shouting a strange curse.

Having been discovered, Harry and his friends face the Ministry officials, who accuse them of conjuring the Dark Mark. Winky, a house-elf, is discovered at the spot with Harry’s wand and being suspected of conjuring the mark, she is sacked by her master, Mr Crouch…

Reaching Hogwarts, Harry, Ron, and Hermione are curious to know what was happening. There was mysterious air around, everyone was excited upon an upcoming event.

‘’ Because of the upcoming event, the Triwizard Tournament, there will be no Quidditch matches’’, said Dumbledore during the feast.

Beauxbatons and Durmstrang were two schools who were going to come over to participate in the event.

Everyone awaited their arrivals and when they came, there was a huge round of applause, especially for Victor Krum. They watched as each of them, above seventeen, drop a piece of paper in the Goblet of Fire, which will choose one champion from each school…

‘’Fleur Delacour… Victor Krum… Cedric Diggory…’’ said Dumbledore. ‘’And wait…’’ said Dumbledore as the Goblet lit up again, ‘’…Harry Potter…’’

There was no clapping, only an angry buzzing noise… Harry knew that somebody…somebody who wanted him dead, put his name in the Goblet…and what was going to happen next…nobody knew…

My ratings:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Very nice… it starts getting darker and darker and darker… lovely story… and there is no need to say because I will and always will, recommend the series to anyone who would listen to me.

Cheers,

Hermione.

My ratings:

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I simply loved it. I think it is at this time that it becomes sort of mysterious and more grown-up and less ‘friendly’

What do you think of the book?
