  2. July is going to be book reading month for me. I’m behind on quite a number of novels, so I hope to catch up with some books that I have been dying to read for quite some time now (none of them are in this post though…sorry πŸ˜…). But I do see quite a number of books that I know I will want to read eventually. Thanks for sharing all these, and as always great post 😊

    1. Oh good luck, Michel!! I know you have so little time yet you always manage to watch so many movies and anime and read a couple comics in between… You’re honestly Superman! XD
      I’m definitely looking forward to some book reviews from you, they’re always so interesting and insightful 😊 And no worries, I figured these were not your cup of tea hahaha (except maybe Red Sister!)
      Thank you for reading and commenting, my friend 😊

  3. Great Review! I loved the Kiss of Deception but I haven’t finished the trilogy yet. I’m planning to binge read the whole trilogy. Red Sister is pretty enjoyable read and I hope you like it when you get to it. I’m so excited for you to read Flame In The Mist! It’s soooo good! I think you’ll definitely love it. πŸ™‚


    1. I highly recommend it! I wasn’t a big fan of the ending but that’s my personal opinion. Everything else was absolutely amazing.
      I hope I love those two as well! They both sound incredibly promising.
      Thank you so much, Raven ❀️


  4. Oh my.. I used to be HOOKED on The Vampire Diaries… like seeeriously hooked πŸ˜€ I haven’t seen only the latest season and I don’t even know what number it is by now… 7? 8? But yeah… you’#re in for a helluva ride yet, girl! πŸ˜‰
    Also- The Originals? Once you catch up with, say, 5-6 seasons of TVD, start watching The Originals as wlel! πŸ˜› I ended up liking it more in the end that TVD! Have you read the books as well? I think that series in book form should have ended at like Book 6 or 7… the last one was just.. no! πŸ˜€

    Right.. books! books! πŸ˜€
    That GRR Martin collection looks gigantic… I only have the first book and I haven’t even read it yet… I really want to make a start on it soon, though… have you read alal the books yourself?

    1. I’ve been binge watching it for a couple weeks now and am completely hooked, for sure! Damon is absolute heaven (or hell) on earth… And I know! I was kind of scared to start but alas, what’s done is done! πŸ˜‚
      I haven’t reached that part quite yet but I’m pretty sure I’ll end up loving them as well!
      I’ve never read the books nor plan to, as it’s quite the massive series, and I’ve heard they’re quite different. I just know I won’t like it as much XD
      Yeah, books! Hahaha
      Oh it is huge and intimidating but it was a gift so no excuse not to read it now XD Don’t worry, we’re in this together! I don’t know when I’ll start but I know I need to be in the right mood for it. Maybe after I get into season 7?

    1. OH NO!! Why were you sent to spam?? :O I’m glad you’re here now but… Weird!
      Thank you so much, Mandy πŸ˜€ Riden and Alosa are soooo cute and adorable, I couldn’t leave them out hahaha
      And despite everything, Geekerella really put a big smile on my face ^^
      Oh I’m hoping we can fangirl together afterwards! It’s supposed to be really nice, although I’ve seen a lot of negative reviews as well. But it was mostly from people who’d read Wrath and Dawn first, so I’m hoping since I haven’t, I’ll be able to enjoy it a bit more πŸ˜›
      Thank you once again, Mandy! ❀


  5. I definitely vouch for the awesomeness of Red Sister. Hope you get the opportunity to read about Nona’s story. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ Your GoT set is pretty epic indeed! I only got the first book, and I can’t wait to finally get the opportunity to read it; well… finally… I don’t know where I can fit in a colossal book like that into my schedule hahah

    1. You and some other bloggers have definitely made me excited for it! So I can’t wait! πŸ™‚
      Yeah I got the GoT set for Christmas! I was so happy about it hahaha I previously had the first and second books but the set is definitely much more awesome πŸ˜›
      I hope you find the time! It is a big investment… And there’s six more waiting for you afterwards XD

  6. I so hope you like Red Sister- such a great book!! And I’ve not read Crystal Storm yet- I’ve heard it was pretty meh- but I’m still saving it so I can read it close to when the last one comes out! And I really need to get on and read Kiss of Deception and Geekerella! Wow that’s a gorgeous set of GOT books!! And I need to find out what the fuss is about with Flame in the Mist too!!

    1. Thank you, I’ve heard wonderful things about it! πŸ™‚ I thought it was, but you might have a different opinion. Oh yeah, that’s clever hahaha I just couldn’t wait to find out what the fuss was about πŸ˜›
      The Kiss of Deception is wonderful! The whole trilogy is, actually. Even if the last book was not as great as the other two. Geekerella was really cute!
      And yeah it is! It’s just so pretty to look at ❀ (And read, I promise I'll actually read it eventually XD ) Flame in the Mist got mixed reviews but I'm still keen on trying it – hopefully, before The Wrath and the Dawn.

      1. You’re welcome!! πŸ˜€
        haha that’s fair enough!! I’ve just been reading these books over such a long period of time, that I figure it’ll be nice to binge on the conclusion (that is if I don’t cave and read it sooner πŸ˜‰ )
        Ahh well that’s good to know!!
        Yes!! πŸ˜€ ❀ Ah yes me too πŸ˜€

  7. I watched every episode of The Vampire Diaries, and met some of the actors, but haven’t read the books. Did you watch The Vampire Diaries and read the books?

    Liked by 1 person

    1. No, I decided to start watching the show on a whim and then, after some research, realized the books were quite different so I didn’t feel like investing the time (there are so many, after all, and the show is already pretty long!)
      Did you enjoy the show? Which season was your favorite? (I’m only on season 2 so no spoilers please XD )


  8. You’ve just push this book, The Kiss of Deception up my TBR list πŸ™‚ That Box Set Books looks awesome! Have you read them all? The length still scared me away.. hehe..

  9. I love the Remnant Chronicles!!! Have you read Beauty of Darkness yet? I couldn’t decide who I liked best for like the entire series :’-D I’ve got a copy of Red Sister from Illumicrate and I can’t wait to read it, I’m just reading King of Thorns now (also by Mark Lawrence) to prepare myself lol.

    1. Yes, I’ve finished the trilogy! As suspected, she didn’t end up with the one I wanted hahaha
      I always had a favorite one, but I liked the other one quite a lot as well. Just not with Lia. The way the author paired the two couples together in the end felt hasty and honestly too convenient. There was no indication a certain someone would end up with another certain someone and suddenly they’re in love? I’m sorry but I don’t buy that. Terrible, terrible ending!
      But, you know, other that that it was a great series πŸ™‚
      Red Sister sounds awesome! I can’t wait to try it ❀
