Vampires, Scones, and Edmund Herondale (The Bane Chronicles, #3)By Cassandra Clare
Pages:  61
Pblisher: Margaret K. McElderry Books

When immortal warlock Magnus Bane attends preliminary peace talks between the Shadowhunters and the Downworlders in Victorian London, he is charmed by two very different people: the vampire Camille Belcourt and the young Shadowhunter, Edmund Herondale. Will winning hearts mean choosing sides?

Beautiful Bane <3

I love these short stories, they give us a better insight on what went down in the past. I'd love to know more about Edmund HERONDALE, he seems very interesting indeed (he is a Herondale afterall).


Unchained (Nephilim Rising #1) REVIEW

Unchained (Nephilim Rising, #1)By Jennifer L. Armentrout
Pages: 400
Publisher: Entangled

Between the pissed off creatures that want demon-hunter Lily Marks dead and the fallen angel who just...wants her, Lily is about ready to trade in forever for a comfy job in a cubicle farm.

The fact that she and Julian are civil to one another is enough to have her thrown out of the Sanctuary, but she can't shake her not-so-angelic stalker or how he brings her dangerously close to ecstasy.

Her forbidden relationship with Julian provides the perfect fuel for suspicion when a traitor is discovered to be working within the Sanctuary. Lily quickly finds herself hunted by well, everyone.

Her only hope is to discover the real traitor before she loses everything--and she'll need Julian's help. That is, if Julian is really there to help her...and not destroy her.

Yeah, being a Nephilim isn't everything it's cracked up to be.

yay angels!
What a confusing book. 
Without given any details about he relationship with Julian, it all just seemed a bit tacky, and the way she kind of just changed her mind about how she saw things with the angels after being raised with strict rules was quite unbelivable. You don't just change our mind about something you've lived by your life without any second thoughts.

Sydney Sage from Bloodlines is a great example of that. She was changed in a realistic way. 

SO the story. 

Very nice, entertaning and sassy, just like all of her books. I love the easy way her books are written in, even though it's paranormal fantasy she still finds a way to make it a fun summer-read book. 

Something alllllll her characters have in common though in all of her books is that they all use the same slang words. 


Give us something unique with each character, it's like writing about the same character with a different name in a different setting. It just won't hold.

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before #1) REVIEW

To All the Boys I've Loved Before (To All the Boys I've Loved Before, #1)By Jenny Han
Pages: 288
Publisher: Simon & Schuster

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is the story of Lara Jean, who has never openly admitted her crushes, but instead wrote each boy a letter about how she felt, sealed it, and hid it in a box under her bed. But one day Lara Jean discovers that somehow her secret box of letters has been mailed, causing all her crushes from her past to confront her about the letters: her first kiss, the boy from summer camp, even her sister's ex-boyfriend, Josh. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all.

Uuugh, just thining back at this book gives me butterflies and heartache.

This book was perfection in it's most eternal form - youth.
I cannot get over how beautiful this is.

I've only been in love once before.

But what I felt for this book....What I FEEL. That's true love. I'm in love. I'm so deeply in love. Our time on this planet is counted, We're all going to die eventually and I will gladly spend all my days loving this book, that's how adorkable this book by Jenny Han is.

It's a true contemporary masterpiece filled with so much love and joy, I haven't been this happy in a loong time.

The characters are so freking loveable, even the ones you dislike, and the narrator is such a breezy, cute and big-hearted person, and she is so hilarious! I laughed trough the whole book, and she just makes my stone-heart all warm and fuzzy with her innocence. It's so freaking nice reading about a normal teenager once in a while, I mean, always reading about brave characters like Tessa, Katniss, Tris and Anabeth can make you feel a bit useless hehe....

All I can say is that this is definitely one of the best (if not the best) contemporary books I've ever read in my whole 18 year old long life. Way to go Jenny Han, can't wait for the sequel!


City of Heavenly Fire (the Mortal Instruments #6) REVIEW


City of Heavenly Fire (The Mortal Instruments, #6)By Cassandra Clare
Publisher: McElderry
Pages: 733

Sebastian Morgenstern is on the move, systematically turning Shadowhunter against Shadowhunter. Bearing the Infernal Cup, he transforms Shadowhunters into creatures out of nightmare, tearing apart families and lovers as the ranks of his Endarkened army swell.

The embattled Shadowhunters withdraw to Idris - but not even the famed demon towers of Alicante can keep Sebastian at bay. And with the Nephilim trapped in Idris, who will guard the world against demons?

When one of the greatest betrayals the Nephilim have ever known is revealed, Clary, Jace, Isabelle, Simon, and Alec must flee - even if their journey takes them deep into the demon realms, where no Shadowhunter has set foot before, and from which no human being has ever returned...


can we just take a moment to.... wow.
it's over. The Mortal Instruments. it's actually over.

I'm not going to talk about how much I love these characters because you can read about that in every other TMI review. I won't even talk about Cassandra Clare's way of writing, because I've mentioned how captivating it is a dozen times before.

I'm simply going to talk about my love for this whole saga. And how this end affected me.

They say that you can fall in love with someone at first sigh. That's what I did - with City of Bones. And for each passing day, my love just grew stronger and stronger.

TMI has taught me so much. I never knew that I could become so close friends with fictional characters, as if they were real. Which they are, to me.

I remember when I first came across City of Bones in my local library. The book was thick, I wasn't used to reading that heavy books. But something just pulled me to it. Something made me borrow it at take it home with me. That pull I felt towards City of Bones is something I've never felt for a book before. Like I was destined to find it.

No one taught me more about life or myself than Clary did. I could relate to Clary so much, and from the moment I got to know her I knew that she'd make me a better person. And she did. Clary taught me about sacrifice, and about love, and to fight for what you love. She taught me to never give up, ever. I've followed her through six books, and with each book she grew. She became this beautiful woman, and I too, grew with her. Just like a parabatai.

Every time I visit the shadowhunter world I feel loved and happy. That's where I go when I want to escape the real mundane world. That's my safe haven.

I will miss them all so so dearly, but I think there's no secret that I love Magnus Bane a that bit more. I have a thing for gay guys. And Magnus Bane is the sassiest f**king freewheeling bisexual of them all. He is probably the most beautiful character that Cassandra Clare has ever created. He is just so full of everything. May it be happiness, joy, adventure, wisdom or love. And he feels so deeply. He burns so bright, it's almost hard to look at him straight (HAHAHAHAHAHA).

his whole being is just so capturing. He is so hard to understand, and that fascinates me. I've never been so hooked to a character as I am to Mr. Bane. I will never forget him, for he will be my joy when I need it the most.

They all will. The whole city will. I can't believe it's over. It was a beautiful ending. One that I actually can live with.

Thank you Cassie, you gave me something I'll cherish the rest of my breathing life.

Holy hell, long time no see!

Hi loves.
Oh, how I've missed you all.
I needed that blog-break. I needed time to think about what I value here in life and to be inspired.
Since we last met I've traveled, won the student body president election, finished every single test and passed every class within the normal time range and with impressing grades given the situation.
I've also passed my driving license (on the first try!) and I've been sightseeing beautiful Stockholm ever since.

Not so much reading to be honest, but I needed to take a break from everything. Just be with friends and family.

I feel like this is the right time for me to start blogging again. My love for books is back. And I feel inspired.

But it wont be like before.
I won't blog as frequently, mostly reviews. maybe 1 - 4 times a week.
Some post might entirely be in swedish, because I've started to read books by swedish authors so it's kind of stupid to review a swedish book in enligh since my non-swedish readers wont be able to read the book anyway.

That was basically it, my review of THE LAST BOOK IN THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS will be up soon, so stay tuned loves!

yours truly
xoxo Lihini
