Summary: A boy who can see the world’s secrets and unravel spells with just a glance. Braden’s witch eyes give him an enormous power. A mere look causes a kaleidoscopic explosion of emotions, memories, darkness, and magic. But this rare gift is also his biggest curse.

Compelled to learn about his shadowed past and the family he never knew, Braden is drawn to the city of Belle Dam, where he is soon caught between two feuding witch dynasties. Sworn rivals Catherine Lansing and Jason Thorpe will use anything—lies, manipulation, illusion, and even murder—to seize control of Braden’s powers. To stop an ancient evil from destroying the town, Braden must master his gift, even through the shocking discovery that Jason is his father. While his feelings for an enigmatic boy named Trey grow deeper, Braden realizes a terrible truth: Trey is Catherine Lansing’s son … and Braden may be destined to kill him.

Review: This is a fast-paced and fun novel. There is enough plot and enough romance and even if some parts are a bit too by-the-book and some things are a bit too predictable, the novel itself is still entertaining. It’s just a good, solid gay YA fantasy novel. :)

I love the French language and that makes me enamoured with French cinema. I’m a movie junkie in general, so when I got Netflix five years ago I discovered so many French films. Films that I didn’t know existed. Well I wanted to share some of my favorite French films in hoping that you’ll enjoy them as much as I did. Discovering something new is one of the best feelings.

You are more than welcome to come talk to me about your feels after you have read any of these fics

pietro-stop asked:

Do you know any fics about/ around the time of the septesepra bathroom incident ?

there are quite a few (I haven’t read all of these)

  • Bound Prince series - It’s long, but everything is basically based on the sectumsempra incident (also gets pretty fluffy)
  • Abraxan Wings AU following the confrontation in the bathroom, which in this fic takes place around the middle of year 6. When the Sectumsempra curse severs a nerve at the base of Draco’s spine, he loses some abilities he may never recover.
  • Sectumsempra - What if Harry wasn’t as fast with his wand in the bathroom. Will he and Malfoy move past their history and save Draco’s family? Eventual slash : “If I’d realized sooner, maybe I wouldn’t be trapped like this.”
  • A Taste Of Sectumsempra - PWP. Harry tries to curse Malfoy; instead, he gets a taste of his own magic. A re-imagining of the bathroom duel in HBP. Warning: S/M, dubious consent.
  • Sectumsempra - In which Snape never comes. In which Harry is left to face the dying boy in front of him alone. Hint of slash.
  • A Mutual Gratification - Harry follows Draco in the middle of the night to the bathroom they once fought in… this time something more remarkable than Sectumsempra happens between them.

Here is an AO3 search for this theme.

anonymous asked:

Hi! Pls link me the hottest Narry fics you have ever read. /u\

Here are a few, hope you enjoy! 

anonymous asked:

you always talk about books that i've never heard of but end up adoring when i read them. do you have a list of the most-loved books you'd recommend to someone?

alRIGHT i’ve been saving up for a while cuz i havent read a lot of books during this sem. but here’s the previous Book Rec i made and here’s some new ones:


  • Incarcerado Trilogy by John Hornor Jacobs – G OD I love this trilogy. Read the first and second book in a matter of hours. Devoured it. It covers some dark stuff (rape, abuse, dark morality and so on) but dang was it all worth it. It also includes queer themes in some instances (the main chara is possibly bi?) although more so in the 2nd book than the first. I’m willing to buy the third soon
  • The Fire Sermon by Francesca Haig
  • Pantomime (Micah Grey Series) by Laura Lam - ok so I haven’t finished this book cuz the sem got too busy and I had to return it to the lib before I got past chapter 3, B UT I SWEAR ITS GOOD. Curse the long library hold list that is keeping me away from this book #lgbqt themes that idk if i should spoil?
  • The Culling (The Torch Keeper Series) by Steven dos Santos – Same as Pantomime in that I couldn’t read it, but I’ve had such good recommendations for it, and the summary is something I’m a sucker for #lgbqt themes (the main chara is gay for some one im p sure)
  • Proxy Series by Alex London– It was a bit hard to get a grasp on this one but I think its p good. With a queer poc main chara that isn’t pushed to romance in every corner, it’s kind of hard to not like.
  • The Wolves of Mercy Falls Series by Maggie Stiefvater – I know I’ve been very open with my love of the Raven Cycle series, but The Wolves of Mercy Falls, starting with Shiver was where I fell in love with Stiefvater’s voice. Its got wolves and that was enough for middle school me back then. It’s a hit-and-miss series for people; they easily compare it to twilight and I’m not gonna rebuke that. It is. I see that now. The love angle sure reminds me of it, especially the way the characters put themselves in dangerous situations. So take this recommendation with a grain of salt.
  • The Chronicles of Faerie by O.R. Mellings – TBH I’ve only ever read the first book, The Hunter’s Moon and I loved it. But I never got in touch with the later parts of the series, so I’m iffy about it. Goodreads gives them good ratings tho.
  • The 39 Clues series (and every freakin sequel series they make after that I guess) by Various Artists/Scholastic Inc – One expensive series for me, because theres shit ton of books under this series now, and I wanted to buy every one of them for the cards and clues each book provided. But expenses aside, I’ve read (and painfully collected) the first series. Its written for a middle-school audience so some parts are predictable but I liked the foundation of the story: Siblings faced against their family members of the Cahills, the world’s most powerful family. It’s a good and fast read, got a good mix of history and mystery. And their website was the source of many hours spent during my middle school years.
  • The School of Good and Evil Series by Somani Chainani – So good. Listen, I judge a book by its cover, it’s the truth. And when I saw the cover, I scoffed at it. But when I actually read it? I would smack past-me for making fun of it. I have a good list of songs from both Wicked and the Phantom of the Opera that would work wonders for these characters in this series and I think that describes it well.
  • EDIT: The Leviathan Series by Scott Westerfield – HOW COULD I FORGET THIS BEAUTIFUL SERIES. Listen, if ur any steampunk fan then this is a must-read series. It follows 2 povs: a runaway prince and a girl in disguise. They’re brilliant brats the 2 of them and i love them dearly. Also the ship, the floating beasty in the skies. U gotta love that. 


  • Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
  • Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell – my bff was persistent about getting me into this book and I’m glad she did. It’s…poignant in some parts but god it’s good.
  • The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff – I don’t remember much since I read it so long ago but I remember there was such great voice that brought me back to my love for fairy tales and such
  • Paper Valentine by Brenna Yovanoff – As I’m typing this up I never noticed they were the same author of the Replacement, but holy cow it would explain the voice dragged me in when I read the first pages of the book.
  • The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller.

The amount of CUTE and ROMANCE in this giant fic gon make a grown man cry. This fic definitely needs more recognition, as does Curryramyeon!!! Some grammatical/spelling blips here and there, but overall the quality was excellent and the writing and characterization were just so creative! Also plus points for HELLA backstory my GOD.
