All Magnus Bane wanted was a vacation—a lavish trip across Europe with Alec Lightwood, the Shadowhunter who against all odds is finally his boyfriend. But as soon as the pair settles in Paris, an old friend arrives with news about a demon-worshipping cult called the Crimson Hand that is bent on causing chaos around the world. A cult that was apparently founded by Magnus himself. Years ago. As a joke.
Now Magnus and Alec must race across Europe to track down the Crimson Hand and its elusive new leader before the cult can cause any more damage. As if it wasn’t bad enough that their romantic getaway has been sidetracked, demons are now dogging their every step, and it is becoming harder to tell friend from foe. As their quest for answers becomes increasingly dire, Magnus and Alec will have to trust each other more than ever—even if it means revealing the secrets they’ve both been keeping.
A warrior chosen by angels and a well-dressed demon’s child, in love and intent on adventure through Europe. What could go wrong?
Listen to tagger’s song requests! After you’re done listening to the three songs the person who tagged you has chosen, choose a book that you think best goes along with that song and tell us why you chose it!
Request 3 songs of your own! Give any three songs (and your corresponding book choices that think go well with said song) you want for your taggers to listen and respond to!
This is a less bookish approach than I’m used to take on the blog but since the amazing Bibi from Bibi’s Book Blog tagged me I’m gonna do it! The theme is love and romance and although I’m not a big fan of those for myself I do enjoy reading them
Thank the person who nominated you to participate.
I’m nothing if not predictable so my rainy days will of course have a lot of fantasy in them
RAINY DAY! The most perfect kind of day for reading, because even if you had other plans you can cancel them thanks to the weather and spend your time doing what you really wanted to do: reading in your room while warped in a cozy blanket and staring wistfully out a window! (or is that just me?)
When I was walking all around the British Isles I was half admiring the scenery and half thinking of all the stories that could take place in the places I was staying at. For example, Edinburgh was so obviously adapted into Harry Potter that I could imagine kids with robes and wands running around. The countryside in Ireland is so green and full of nature that I could clearly see where all the stories about fairies came from, not to mention the actual history of the places. So while I was there I started asking for recs but mostly I searched on goodreads and other blogs for stories taking place on the UK and Ireland.
After an unintentional hiatus, I’m finally back! As you may know I took a trip to the UK and Ireland last month and between preparing for it and actually traveling I couldn’t make content for the blog (for which I’m sooo sorry). But I’m back to Argentina now, with brand new plans for my next trip and all the excitement and energy to pick the blog back up!
Without further ado, here’s my Friday reads for a book I juuust finished yesterday but I wanted to mention anyways:
My Current read
Friday read was invented by The Candid cover, It’s a book meme that mixes two already existing:
Book Beginnings is a book meme hosted by Rose City Reader where participants share the first sentence (or so) of the book, along with initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
