Random Fridays is a weekly meme originally hosted and created by Rebeca at “Books and Messy Buns”, that anyone can join.

Since her blog has gone through some changes and I really liked her weekly memes, I asked for her permission to continue with them and here we are.

Anyhow to participate you just have to do the following:

  • Pick up the book you’re currently reading (or read last)
  • Go to this random number generator and insert the total amount of pages in your book.
  • Generate a random number.
  • Open your book on the page with number you got
  • Repeat step 2 and 3 but with the number of lines on that page.
  • Your random sentence is the first sentence in the line with the number you got (it doesn’t matter if the sentence starts a few lines before)

Note: Please refer the creator of the meme and the host (this blog/this post) in your own post and leave a comment down below with a link to your RF so all the participant can have a look and share their thoughts too!

My Random Sentence:

Just as she got to the bottom of the stairs, Mouchard -drawn by the noisy echo of Belle´s boots on the steps- came hurrying into the foyer.

Watching or waiting?

Movies to Start the Year! (¡Películas para Empezar el Año!)

Watching or waiting

January sucks! I mean my birthday is in January and I like the weather and all, but as far as movie releases go -at least in my country-, it´s the worst month.

And what´s worse, is that I have 2×1 all month, and… no movies to watch, so I thought about skipping this but… in the end decided to give it a go, so here we are.

¡Enero apesta! Quiero decir mi cumpleaños es en Enero y me gusta el clima y todo pero en cuanto a películas -al menos en mi país-, es el peor mes.

Y saben que es lo peor, tener todo el mes al 2×1 y… nunguna película que ver, así que pense en saltarme la lista pero.. al final decidi intentarlo, asi que… aquí vamos.

Calling my name

New Year, New Beginnings, and New Book List to Read!

Calling my name

colaj-manele-despre-viata-2017-octombrieI know, I know, it´s late, but in my defense, I did make some post before the year began, and I´m almost finished with my first pick of the year so…

Anyhow, this time last year, I made my book list of the month to start the year on a good -or at least interesting- note, and this time around is no different, except that I´m hoping to start it with optimism. Which is why my January picks are all about winter wonder, magic, and fluffy feelings -with maybe an exception-.

So…, without further ado, here we go!

¡Feliz Año Nuevo!

El año pasado en estos momentos, estaba trabajando en mis propósitos de año nuevo, y 2018 no es diferente.

En fin, el plan era postear mi progreso durante el año, pero no lo hice asi que…, pense en matar 2 pájaros de 1 tiro, reflexionar en los que cumplí y aquellas que necesito trabajar más.

Así que, ¡aquí vamos!

 

Happy New Year!
This time last year, I was working on my New Years resolutions, and 2018 is no different.

Anyhow the plan was to post my progress during the year, but I didn´t do it, so… I thought I could kill 2 birds with 1 stone, reflect the ones I accomplished as well as the ones that need more work.

So, here we go!

Why not?

Countdown to 12.- TV Wonders and Disapointments of the Year

Why not

There are less than 24hrs to go for New Years, and with the book, movie and comic book list done, it´s time for the series I have enjoyed the most this year!

Once again I have grouped this list in my favorite 6 and my least favorites, so it doesn´t  mean they are the best or worst series, just the ones I´m liking the most.

 

Anyhow, I didn´t mention some series like Teen Wolf, Grimm, etc, since they are done and deserve their own posts, so… without further ado, here we go!

All-time favorites

Countdown to 12.- Comics at the Top and Bottom of my Shelf

All-time favorites

First were books, then movies, and now with the year about to end here are my favorite and least favorite comics of the year!

Just like with the other list, this is divided on my top 6 and bottom 6, which don´t necessarily reflect the best or worst comics of the year, just the ones that I liked the most and least.

So… here we go!

Countdown to 12.- Movies of the year (Cuenta Regresiva para las 12.- Películas del Año)

Viewed films

So…, the year is basically over and since I already made my list of favorite and least favorite books of the year, I thought it was time for the movies!

Once more, since it´s tradition to countdown to 12, the movies are grouped in the 6 I enjoyed the most and the least, therefore these aren´t necessarily what I consider the best or worst movies of the year.

Así que… el año basicamente ha terminado, y como ya hice mi lista de mis favoritos y menos preferidos libros del año, pense que era momento de hacer lo mismo por las películas.

Una vez más, como es tradición la cuenta regresiva para las 12, las películas estan agrupadas en las 6 que disfrute más y menos, por lo tanto no son necesariamente las películas que considero mejores o peores.

Countdown to 12.-My Top and Bottom Reads of the Year

Loved it-hated it

Happy Holidays!
The new year is almost here, and since I promised to write more often, I thought I´d start on a good note and try something new like making a list of my top books of the year!

Now, just to be clear, these aren´t precisely books that were released in 2017, but more like the ones I read. The top 6 will be the ones that I liked the most while the bottom 6…, well you get the drill, so here we go. Continue reading “Countdown to 12.-My Top and Bottom Reads of the Year”

Season of Changes (Temporada de Cambios)

winter-snow-flower-wallpaper-1.jpg

Almost 2 years ago, I started this blog as a way to practice my writing both in English and Spanish, as well as a form to be less lazy about writing. It´s enough to say I have failed since my last post was in September and the year is almost over.

Usually, by this point, I´d have thrown the towel, and abandoned this blog, but this time I couldn´t do it seems like this blog means more to me than I thought. I like to write what I think about the stuff I enjoy and have people read it. So no, I´m not abandoning this blog, though due to lack of time, some changes will have to be made.

Some of this changes have already taken place, and others will happen progressively, but it´s enough to say that from now on I´ll try to post at least every 2 weeks -which may complicate some other stuff- and to make my posts shorter.

I´ve thought about doing some kind of podcasting to deal with my weekly episode reviews ´cause I don´t like to be on screen, but I´m still unsure on how to make that work, anyhow thanks to all of you that still follow this blog and have taken the time to read this, I hope the changes are for good and to your liking, and for you to still follow me on this journey.

MERRY CHRISTMAS & A Happy New Year!

 

Hace casi dos años, inicie este blog como una forma de prácticar mi escritura, tanto en Inglés como en Español -pero sobre todo Inglés-, y una manera de ayudarme a ser menos floja a la hora de escribir. Sobra decir que fracase, en vista de que mi último post fue por  septiembre y estamos terminando el año. 

En fin… usualmente en este punto, ya habría tirado la toalla, y habría olvidado este blog, sin embargo, esta vez no he podido hacerlo, al parecer este blog significa más para mi de lo que pense. Me gusta escribir lo que pienso sobre cosas que disfruto y que la gente lo lea. Asi que no, no abandonare este blog, sin embargo… debido a falta de tiempo,  algunos cambios ocurriran.

Algunos de estos cambios ya son notorios, y otros seran progresivos, pero basta con decir que de ahora en adelante tratare de postear por lo menos cada 2 semanas -lo cual puede que complique un poco algunas cosas- y de hacer post más cortos.

He pensado en hacer una clase de podcasting para lidiar con mis reseñas de episodios semanales ya que no me gusta aparecer en pantalla, pero aún no estoy segura de como hacer que eso funcione en fin…, gracias a todos aquellos que aun siguen este blog y que se han tomado la molestia de leer esto, espero que estos cambios sean para bien y sean de su agrado y me sigan acompañando en este viaje.

¡FELIZ NAVIDAD Y AÑO NUEVO!
