YA Summer! Books to read in July

Calling my name


Well, I´m finally back, and just in time for summer!

So thank you, Rick Riordan, for having your Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard series consume most of my month!

Anyhow, if anything, Riordan´s books put me just in the mood to give Young Adult -YA- books another go!

So this time around my July TBR list is full of YA novels about summer. love and adventure.

Movies to Leap in July! (¡Película para Saltar en Julio!)

Watching or waiting

Well, from what I have gathered, it seems like the whole summer movie season went to April, May, and June; ’cause quite honestly there aren’t that many movies I want to see this month.

So… this time around the list will be pretty short I guess, which after the trip I went on, are actually good news for my wallet, but still!

Anyhow, without further ado, here’s my list.

Bueno, por lo que he podido ver, parece que toda la temporada de peliculas veraniegas se fue en Abril, Mayo y Junio; porque honestamente no hay tantas películas que quiera ver este mes.

Así que…, creo que esta será una lista corta, lo cual imagino despues del viaje que hice, son buenas notivias para mi cartera, pero de todos modos!

En fin, sin más que decir, he aquí mi lista.

about me

Para el Padre que Extraño

Ayer fue el día del padre, y no sé ni cómo sentirme.

No estoy feliz, ni estoy triste; simplemente me siento vacía,

porque tengo un padre, pero ha pasado tanto tiempo desde la última vez que lo vi,

desde la última vez que hablamos, que… a veces siento como si no tuviera uno.


Solíamos tener buenos tiempos, ¿verdad?

Solía haber una época en la que eras mi héroe, mi confidente,

mi mejor amigo, el guardián de mis secretos.


Hoy en día, cuando hablamos, no puedo evitar pensar

que no conozco al hombre frente a mi, y que él no me conoce.

Y una parte de mí, no puede evitar preguntarse si alguna vez lo hicimos.

¿Alguna vez te conocí?, ¿alguna vez  me conociste?


¿Cómo es que llegamos a este punto?

¿Cuándo dejaste de buscarme?, ¿cuándo deje yo de tratar de llamar tu atención?

¿Acaso soy una mala hija por no poder mirarte a la cara y seguir fingiendo que me creo todas tus mentiras?, ¿acaso soy mala hija por no poder pretender que no escucho cuando mientes al teléfono y dices estar solo?, ¿soy mala hija por no poder soportar más que me hagas a un lado por algo que te interesa más?


Al tratar de recordar los buenos tiempos,

porque hubieron buenos tiempos, ¿verdad?

He intentado recordar cómo me sentía cada día del padre.

Estaba emocionada estoy segura, ansiosa por ver si te gustaba mi regalo.

Impaciente por pasar el día contigo, y algunas veces decepcionada porque no pasabas todo el día con nosotros.

Porque siempre recibías una llamada, y nos dejabas atrás.


Este año, no te compre un regalo, no espere junto al teléfono  que llamaras y me dijeras si podía verte para pasar un tiempo juntos.

Este año, ni siquiera mande el mensaje que no responderías sino hasta el día siguiente;

no hice la llamada que dejarías ir a buzón y no regresarías sino hasta horas más tarde.

Y por eso me siento mal.


Porque debía haberlo hecho.

Porque aún eres mi papá.

Porque tuvimos buenos tiempos.

Y porque aunque la mayor parte del tiempo no sé qué sentir por ti.

Ame a ese papá, al papá que me conto historias, que me escuchaba,

quien me llevaba a tener aventuras, quien hizo todo lo posible por darme todo lo que necesite y quise; quien me llevo a mi primer concierto.


Así que esto es para el papá que fue el mundo para mi, quien real o no, realmente extraño.

about me

To the Father I miss

Yesterday was Father´s Day, and I don´t know how to feel.
I’m not sad, but neither and am I happy, I just feel kind of empty.
‘Cause I have a father, but it´s been such a long time since I last saw him;
since I last had a conversation with him that…, sometimes I feel like I don’t have him.

We used to have good times, right?
There used to be a time when you were my hero; when you were my confidant, my best pal, my secret bearer.

Nowadays, when we do talk, I cannot help but think that I don’t know the man in front of me and, he doesn’t know me.
And a part of me can’t help but wonder if we ever did.
Did you ever know me? Did I ever know you?

How did we get to this point?
When did you stop reaching out? When did I get tired of trying to get your attention?
Am I a bad daughter ’cause I can no longer look at your face and pretend I believe all your lies?
Am I a bad daughter ’cause I can no longer pretend I don´t hear you lying on the phone, pretending you are alone? ‘Cause I can no longer bear you leaving me aside for something that interests you more?

Trying to remember the good times, ‘
cause there were good times, right?
I tried to remind myself how I felt each Father’s Day.
I was excited, I’m pretty sure, anxious for you to see my present.
Thrilled to spend the day with you, and sometimes disappointed ’cause you wouldn’t spend all the day with us.
‘Cause you would always receive a call and leave us behind.

This year I didn’t buy you a present, I didn’t wait at my phone for you to call me and tell me when we could meet and spend some time together.
This year, I didn’t even send you a message you wouldn’t answer ’til the next day, I didn’t make the phone call I knew you would let go to voice mail and only return hours later.
And for that, I feel bad.

‘Cause I should have done it.
‘Cause you’re still my dad.
‘Cause we did have our good times.
And ’cause even though most of the time I don’t know how I feel about you.
I loved that dad, I loved the dad who told me stories, who listened to me, who took me on to adventures, who did everything he could to give me what I needed or wanted, who took me to my first concert.

So here is to that dad who meant the world to me, and whom real or not I really miss.

So… What happened to May? Bookworm Problems 101

Calling my name

I had a list! I swear I had a list! I have, in fact, all my 2018 TBR lists per month done! I mean sure before posting said lists sometimes I have to tweak a couple of things here and there -especially when it turns out, the books I wanted to read that month haven´t been released yet-, but for the most part it´s pretty much done!, so… what happened to the May TBR list? Well…

This happened!

Watching or waiting?

April Movies to Not Fool Yourself! (¡Películas de Abril para que no te engañes!)

Watching or waiting

I think this must be the first time I post this list before any movies of the month come out!

Anyhow if I thought there were lots of movies to watch in March and surprisingly February, that was nothing! Nothing I tell you, compared to how many releases there are this April!

So… once again since money is tighter now than ever, I had to make some difficult choices and therefore here´s my watching or waiting list for the April movies released in Mexico.

Creo que ¡esta es la primera vez que posteo esta lista antes de que alguna de las películas salga!

En fin, si pense que en Marzo y sorprendentemente Febrero tenian demasiadas películas por ver, eso fue ¡nada! Nada les digo, comparado con cuantas películas se estrenan este mes de Abril.

Asi que… una vez más, como el dinero es más escaso ahora que nunca; tuve que tomar algunas decisiones dificiles y por lo tanto he aquí mi lista de películas lanzadas este  Abril en México que veré y por las que esperaré .

Books Showering this April!

Calling my name

So… I´m still one book behind my March TBR list, but April is already here, therefore though I haven´t finished Into The Water yet, here I am once again with my book list of the month.

This time around since in my country we celebrate children´s day this month and they tell me that apparently in the United States they celebrate siblings they this month… well my April TBR list is all about kids and siblings, so… here we go!

All-time favorites

Super Sons: Up up and away?

All-time favorites

cefgrokwaaaqxsdSo…, I´m starting to think the Comic book Gods have something against me ´cause first Marvel cancels Spider-woman -I meant to write about it, but I was really upset-, then I hear that Laura Kinney´s run as Wolverine is coming to a close and now! Now! DC is canceling Super Sons?

Like seriously? why? Super Sons is one of the best things to come from the whole DC Rebirth! -along with Jonathan Kent as Superboy, but that pretty much comes hand in hand so there-, I mean I know that the plan is apparently to have both Damian and Jon in the new Young Justice comic -probably written by Tomasi-, but still!

¡Ejercitandome! Empezar es la Parte Fácil (Exercising! Getting Started is The Easy Part)


Así que… como algunos de ustedes tal vez ya saben, uno de mis Propositos de año nuevo para el 2018 es ejercitar por lo menos 30 minutos todos los dias, y tenía la intención de hacer esto pero… al final resulto que contrario a lo que me habia dicho y hecho creer la gente -y los medios-, empezar a hacer ejercicio no es la parte más dificil.

So… as some of you might know, one of my New Years resolutions for 2018 is to exercise at least 30 minutes every day, and I fully intended to accomplish this, but… in the end it turns out that to start doing exercise is not the most difficult part as so many people -and media- had made me believe.
