    The Folk of the Air series By Holly Black. Book Review!

    I can’t wait to read the rest of the series after finishing The Cruel Prince. I thoroughly enjoyed this entire series and became a fan of Holly Black as a result. In this blog, I’ll go over the entire The Folk of the Air series. Initial Impression of the Plots! The Wicked King is the second instalment in The Folk of the Air series. This book was definitely better than the first, and it was probably my favorite of the entire series, owing to all of the storyline twists.

    The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1) by Holly Black.

    I see why The Cruel Prince has gotten so much attention. It’s a truly amazing story. From the outset, there was something about the language, the universe the author builds, and the entire mood of the book that couldn’t help but captivate me. I have yet to read the next two books in the series, but I am eager to start them and write a complete series review as soon as possible. I can see why there’s so much fuss. Call me a geek for arriving late to the party, but this book is fantastic. What’s the story about? When Jude’s parents were slain, she and her two sisters were…

    The Infernal Devices Series by Cassandra Clare. Book Review!!

    Finally, I’ve decided to write about the Infernal Devices trilogy, often known as The Clockwork Angel novels. The fact that the name of my blog and book are similar is not a coincidence ( if not I based the name of the blog on the book). This series in the Shadowhunters universe is one of my favorites. The Characters we meet in the first book of the series are what I enjoy about it. The Story Clockwork Angel is the first novel in Cassandra Clare’s Infernal Devices series, and the fourth book we’re reading for this Shadowhunter mission in the order provided by Cassandra Clare herself!

    Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid – Book Review.

    There is no need for an introduction to this book. If you’re a fan of contemporary romance; you’ve probably seen this book at a bookstore or heard great things about it on social media. Despite the fact that I am writing about Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid at a late hour; but I have just finished reading it.

The book is structured like a music documentary with people’s statements, and a few articles thrown in for good measure. There is no back-and-forth conversation, inner thoughts, or unnecessary description.…

    Classic Novels To Read (women’s classics)

    This blog is a follow-up to Part 1 of the “Classic Novels to Read” series. And I wanted to make a blog devoted to women in literature where I selected my favorites women’s classics. Jane Eyre By Charlotte Bronte It’s no surprise that Jane Eyre is considered not only a feminist classic, but also an example of Romantic Gothic literature. Bronte’s writing is enthralling and exquisitely eloquent. Within the first few pages, readers are likely to develop a fondness for Jane and her numerous ‘plights’. Jane is such a genuine character, and Bronte captures the inner workings of her mind perfectly. There are also numerous insightful passages on issues of…

    Classic Novels To Read (Part 1)

    The classic novels are a treasure trove of English literature. They never grow old and continue to inspire many novels, films, and plays to this day. Any avid reader should read these classic novels. During my first year of masters at college, I read my first classic novel. Classics have always piqued my interest, and they are now one of my re-reads. So I compiled a list of great novels I’ve read; which is in two parts. The Iliad by Homer The Iliad is Greek civilization’s first and greatest literary achievement; an epic poem without equal in world literature and a cornerstone of Western culture. The Iliad’s tale revolves around…

    Meditation and its Benefits!

    To begin, I should state that I am not an expert, but rather someone who enjoys and tries to meditate on a regular basis.In meditation we learn to pay attention to the breath when it comes in and out during meditation, and to note when the mind wanders away from this task. Returning to the breath strengthens the muscles of concentration and mindfulness.When we focus on our breath, we are learning how to intentionally return to and stay in the present moment—how to anchor ourselves in the here and now without judgment. Does Meditation Help? Although meditation isn’t a universal answer, it can help you create some much-needed breathing room…
