  1. All of these are on my TBR except for the last one which I’ve read and loved 😀 I do want to re-read it sometime though as I’ve only read the original trilogy so far. I’m also hoping to treat myself to a copy of House Of Salt & Sorrows once I’ve caught up on my current library books as it sounds amazing. Other fictional worlds that I love are the wizarding world, Elfhame and the settings of Wicked Lovely. I have a feeling that I’ll also love the setting of ACOTAR but I still need to read that to find out for sure.

    1. Take that as a sign that these are all books worth checking out 🙂 I enjoyed House of Salt and Sorrows, the description is mesmerizing. I feel as though I can never fully enjoy the wizarding world from J.K. Rowling’s perspective because I’ve seen the movies first — no matter what, I’ll picture Hogwarts from the cinematic perspective.

      1. Im sure they are 😊 I’ve seen so many people agree about that and it sounds so haunting. Oh right. I get that if you saw them first, especially as there are so many of them. I think I’ll probably end up feeling that way about Fantastic Beasts. Although that’s also partially because it’s a play and they don’t appeal to me so much.
