Harry Potter Anniversary Week! – Day 5!

And the celebration continues and we’re talking ships! When I first read the books, I really never shipped any characters together unless it was in the books. In other words, I just accepted whatever was in the book. There were a few relationships that I thought would happen but never did and I moved on.

Harry Potter Anniversary Week! – Day 4!

It is now Day 4 on the Harry Potter Anniversary Week! Today, everyone is telling a story about their experience of Harry Potter or something related to Harry Potter. It can be any story at all. It can be a funny story, or even happy story that makes you cry. Today, I am going to tell how the first 4 books came into my possession. I’m actually going to quote a part of a tag I did last year in September, as this is always the story I tell:

Review #118 – The Gilded King

The Gilded King by Josie Jaffrey
Rating: 3 Stars
Series: Sovereign, #1
Length: 292 Pages
Purchase: [Amazon]

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. 

Synopsis:
In the Blue, the world’s last city, all is not well.

Julia is stuck within its walls. She serves the nobility from a distance until she meets Lucas, a boy who believes in fairytales that Julia’s world can’t accommodate. The Blue is her prison, not her castle, and she’d escape into the trees if she didn’t know that contamination and death awaited humanity outside.

But not everyone in the Blue is human, and not everyone can be contained.

Beyond the city’s boundaries, in the wild forests of the Red, Cameron has precious little humanity left to lose. As he searches for a lost queen, he finds an enemy rising that he thought long dead. An enemy that the humans have forgotten how to fight.

One way or another, the walls of the Blue are coming down. The only question is what side you’ll be on when they do.

Harry Potter Anniversary Week – Day 2!

It is now Day 2 of the weeklong Harry Potter Celebration. For Day 2, everyone is ranking their favorite books and movies. I would have to apologize because this is going to be one very short post because I can’t get myself to rank both the books or the movies. I think each book is just equal to each other. I could also be lazy or something, but I don’t know.

In the books, you have to love the first because it set off the huge adventure we all went on just to read them all and experience all of the magic each one had. We also have to love the final books despite all the cries we shared towards the ending. It completes the entire adventure. The movies are just the same. Each one adds a little something to absolutely everything.

Until Next Time….

Harry Potter Anniversary Week – Day 1!

It’s Harry Potter Week!

Guess what Potterheads? On June 26th, it will be the 21st anniversary of the famous book that we all come to love, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. It was originally published on June 26th, 1997. Although it was published in the US until September 1st, 1998, it’s the original date that matters here. In the spirit of the anniversary, Margaret at Weird Zeal has set up a Harry Potter Week to celebrate it! (I’m just finding out about this now, so I’m quickly typing this up to participate!) This is going to be fun!

Can’t Wait Wednesday – June 20th

CWW

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings. The aim of the post is to select a book, usually upcoming, that you can’t wait to read and discuss it.

Rule by Ellen Goodlett

Synopsis:
Three girls with three deadly secrets. Only one can wear the crown.The king is dying, his heir has just been murdered, and rebellion brews in the east. But the kingdom of Kolonya and the outer Reaches has one last option before it descends into leaderless chaos.

Or rather, three unexpected options.

Zofi has spent her entire life trekking through the outer Reaches with her band of Travelers. She would do anything to protect the band, her family. But no one can ever find out how far she’s already gone.

Akeylah was raised in the Eastern Reach, surrounded by whispers of rebellion and abused by her father. Desperate to escape, she makes a decision that threatens the whole kingdom.

Ren grew up in Kolonya, serving as a lady’s maid and scheming her way out of the servants’ chambers. But one such plot could get her hung for treason if anyone ever discovers what she’s done.

When the king summons the girls, they arrive expecting arrest or even execution. Instead they learn the truth: they are his illegitimate daughters, and one must become his new heir. But someone in Kolonya knows their secrets, and that someone will stop at nothing to keep the sisters from their destiny… to rule.

Magic, mystery, and blackmail abound in this sensational and striking fantasy debut.
