Magical Monday #20, because I haven’t done one in a looong time

Hello everyone! Yeah, I know I haven’t been posting for the last few weeks ( month maybe?) because of my exams, so the time I can be on my computer is very short.

But, I have 60 followers now!

Yeah, so I have not done Magical Monday for a very long time, and so since today is Monday, why not do it?

So today’s book will be…

Warbringer!

I finished this in two days, and let’s just say I loved it. I’ve always been a fan of superheroes, especially DC Comics and Marvel.

Warbringer is about Wonder Woman, and if you have seen the movie, it’s in the 1990s ( or 1980s?) but this is modern day New York.

Diana is an Amazon living on Themyscira, an island where all female battle-proven warriors go after they fall in battle. Everyone on that island is battle-proven, except Diana. She is made from her mother’s own hands, and blessed by the gods.

Diana ditches the chance to win a race and prove herself to her sisters to save a mortal, Alia Keralis. When Alia is on the island, three Amazons fall sick, and earthquakes happen on the island. And the worst thing is, Alia is the cause of it.

What she didn’t know was that she was a Warbringer, a descendant of Helen of Troy,   cursed to spread mayhem wherever she goes. And when the sun sets on Hekatombaion, her powers will reach its full potential, unleashing war on the world.


Okay, so I’m not exaggerating when I love it, but it is so well written and funny at the same time!

Once again, so Super sorry for not posting, and have a good day!

Magical Monday #19

Hello everyone! I’m sorry that I have not posted for the past few days, but I have been super busy ( now that I think about it, that’s not a good excuse) the past few days.

But now, I have time to post and since I missed Magical Monday yesterday, why not do it on Tuesday… again? 😝

Today’s book will be…

The Diamond of Drury Lane!

Now, I really love this book because (a) It’s set in London, and I love London and (b) the heroine is a girl and GIRL POWER.

It’s not set in modern day London, it’s set in 1790, and the heroine is Catherine “Cat” Royal, she lives in the Theatre Royal, hence her last name. She’s an orphan, and if it wasn’t for Mr Sheridan, the owner, she would had froze to death on the sidewalk.

After a disastrous play at the theatre, Cat followed Mr Sheridan and overheard his conversation with Marchmont about a diamond hidden in the theatre.

She befriends a new violinist at the theatre, a former African slave, Pedro. On the night of another play, she meets the Duke of Avon, and his children Lord Francis and Lady Elizabeth. Pedro arranges a meeting with them, showcasing Cat’s writing and his musical talents.

Cat brings Lord Francis and Pedro to Syd’s boxing match, also known as the ‘Bow Street Butcher’, mainly because he’s a butcher at the market.

And when a slip of the tongue reveals the secret of the diamond to Pedro, will he keep the secret? Or will he try to find the diamond, and pawn it?


The diamond will surprise you, believe me!

Magical Monday #18

Hello everyone! I am back with Magical Monday, and I know that some of you are angry at me (particularly the bookworms) for not doing Magical Monday last week. But I hope that all of you will forgive me but I was really busy last week. ( thanks for forgiving me, if you choose to) Oh, and by the way, I made another cover image, ( think that’s what’s it’s called?) featuring my very own books!

Today’s book will be….

School for Good and Evil!

This book is about Sophie and Agatha, two different girls different in every possible way, but somehow, they’re best friends. The fourth book is coming out on nineteenth September, so I’m marking my calendar for that date. I’ve searched every website, but somehow, I can’t pre-order the book or pre-order the signed edition because they do not deliver to Singapore, so on that day, or the day after that, I’m hitting my local bookstores to see if they have the stock yet.

But getting back on topic, in their village, every 4 years, the School Master comes to Gavaldon and kidnaps two children, one Good and one evil, both for both schools. The schools train children to become heroes and be the evil lest villain. In fairytales. Of course, you would think that Sophie got into good and Agatha got into Evil right? Well, think again, it’s actually the other way round.

But the thing is, the children kidnapped by the School Master never came back.


What do you think? Would Sophie and Agatha get out of the fairytale world? Or would they remain trapped there, forever?

Magical Monday #17

Hello everyone! I’m sorry that I couldn’t post on Monday, I had exams and had so little time to come online. Well, that’s an excuse for not having any books to review.

Today’s book will be Anne of Avonlea!

Ah, I just love this book so much. It’s charming, funny and Anne’s poetry is just so imaginative!

This is the sequel to Anne of Green Gables, and I love it. (Have I mentioned that I love it? 😜) Anne has now taken over the Avonlea school, and later on, she takes in Davy and Dora, two twins who are very different in personality. And now, Anne has formed the Avonlea Village Improvement Society, along with Diana, Gilbert and Jane.

Later in the book, Anne discovers Echo Lodge, the home of Miss Lavender Lewis, the forty-five year old woman who loves to pretend and lives with her handmaiden, Charlotta the Fourth. Why it’s called Echo Lodge, you’ll find out.


Will the A.V.I.S turn out to be a good thing or a curse? Or maybe a bit of both? Comment your thoughts below!

Thanks for reading,

Magical Monday #16

Good afternoon everyone! (If it’s morning or evening where you live, then good morning/evening) I’m so sorry that I forgot to post on Monday, just had to finish up a bit of homework. 😉

A Dash of Magic!

It’s the second book in a series, but it’s also fine as a stand-alone book. It’s about Rosemary Bliss, a young cook who’s family’s magic cooking book had just been stolen. And not by any old thief, the book was stolen by their Aunt Lily LeFay.

She has used to book to cheat her way up the social ladder, becoming the top celebrity chef. Rose wants to get the Bliss Cookery Booke ( Ahh, I love how it’s spelled with an e, looks so elegant! And if anyone had read Anne of Green Gables, you might see the common thing between me and Anne when it came to names) and when her aunt was doing a TV show, she challenged Lily to a baking competition in Paris. And the good thing is, with a huge audience watching, Lily can’t back down. Rose tells Lily that if Lily gives her back the Booke, she will lose the competition on purpose. To Rose’s surprise, Lily declines.

And to make it even worse, Lily had just launched a new magical ingredient, and anyone who eats it makes the person obsessed with Lily. The Bliss family needs another copy of the Booke, and the only other one in the world is with their great grandfather ( I think?) Balthazar Bliss, but here’s the catch: it’s written in an ancient language, but their grandfather can translate.

The Bliss family takes Balthazar and his talking cat to Paris, where they meet the world famous Jeanpierre-Jean Pierre, ( Again, I think that’s his name?) the inventor of the chocolate eclair ( according to the book).

In order to fight fire ( or in this case, Magic), you need fire of your own. And that’s what Rose did.


Will rose win the competition? Or will her chances of getting back the Booke burn? Comment your thoughts about the book, I would love to see what all of you think!

Thanks for reading,
Hayley

Hello everyone! I’m so sorry that I missed yesterday’s post, I was swamped with homework. And, for the book today, it’s…

(This is not a sponsored post. All thoughts are mine)


Rump!

Okay, funny name for a book, but the real name is Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin. Haha, I was kidding you.

So this book is about Rumpelstiltskin. To be more specific, his name. We all know his story, but this is his story. He lives in a a kingdom where your name is your destiny, which means he can’t change it. And, his name is Rump. Rump isn’t his full name, just that his mother died before she could say the full name. So he is the joke of town, and he only lives with his grandmother. And, one day, he discovers his mother’s wishes, he spins straw.

And that straw didn’t turn out to be any old quilt, it’s made of gold Magical gold.

Magical Monday #14

This is the book for today…

Hook’s Revenge!

Okay, I know what you’re all thinking: Isn’t Captain Hook dead? Well, he is, but that doesn’t mean his daughter isn’t.

Jocelyn Hook lives with her grandfather in his mansion, and wants to be a pirate. She dreams of the day when her father whisks her off on his ship, sailing on the Seven seas.

So when her grandfather has had enough of her, he sends her off to finishing school. There, she meets the normal students at finishing school. Girls who love pink, snarky and the occasional mean girl. Unlucky Jocelyn happened to be paired with the meanest one of them all, Priscilla and Nanette.

Jocelyn meets the errand boy, Roger and they get on pretty quickly. When someone sees them together, they tell on them and Roger is dismissed. One day, Jocelyn gets a letter from her late father, and as her inheritance, she is tasked with killing the Neverland’s Beast.


Do you think Jocelyn will kill the crocodile? Or will she fail and let everyone of her pirate crew be shamed? Comment your thoughts below!

P.S You’ll find the Narrator interesting
