Book Valentine! Books to Read in February

Calling my name

heart-792179_1920Love, love, love! February is finally here! and there´s no bigger sign than all the hearts, chocolates and flowers being sell everywhere!

I´m usually not a fan of Valentine´s Day, but this year I´m trying new things -like baking Valentines Day cookies! I´ll try to post about it-, and last year I enjoyed the books I chose to read so… why not give it another go, right?

Anyhow, that´s why this month´s books are all about love and friendship, so… without anything else to say here we go!

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!

September Books to fight of the Routine!

Calling my name

280924-books-vintage-old-748x468I know, I know. I totally missed my August and July lists and it´s been a really long time since I last wrote in this blog, but… since things in my life are finally calming down a little bit, I´m finally back!

Anyhow, this time around I intended for my list to be shorter, ´cause I finally got Always and Forever Lara Jean by the author Jenny Han and so… I decided that a re-reading of the 2 previous books in the To All The Boys I loved Before series was in order! Especially with the movie coming! -More on that in a later post I think-

But in the end… I got so invested in trying to fight off my grown up routine that, as always I ended with a longer list than intended, any way to fight of the routine as I mentioned, this month is all about Independence, Magic, Fantasy, and Survival!

So… in no particular order, here it goes:

Summer Loving Books

Calling my name

It´s been a really long time since I last wrote anything on this blog, so long that honestly, I don´t know if there´s still people reading it or are interested in it, but be it there or not I´m finally back!

summer-reading-part-twoAnyhow, reasons for not having written anything I got plenty – work, health, trips, etc.-, but if I´m really honest with myself it really has to do with my lack of organization skills -I´m still working on that!-, but the point is that I´m finally back and ready to quick off the summer with some fun, loving and maybe one and other mystery.

So…. here are my book picks for June!

Books Pouring Down On Me

Calling my name

Once again I´m late with my reading list -this is starting to be the norm now-, but at least I have already finished the first of my  April picks so…. not everything is lost, right?

books-rain-window-favim-com-3591441Anyway last month I was able to read almost all of my March picks -I didn´t read my Spanish book pick-, so let’s hope this month I can do at least as good if not better than March.

So…. for this month the books, I also tried to choose books that had something to do with the things celebrated in April -which were surprisingly plenty- such as kid´s day, book´s day and Gabriel García Márquez -a Colombian journalist, writer, etc.- birthday.

Anyhow, without any further ado, to the list:

Blooming Books for March

Calling my name

 

19624infocusbookreviewsSo… once again I´m a little late with my book picks for the month, and at this point, it really shouldn´t  really surprise anyone, especially me. ´Cause apparently I´m overly ambitious and I always want to read more books than I have time to

Case in point, I´m still reading La Gente Que Viene y Bah, the third book on my February book picks.

But I´m nothing if not optimistic when reading books, so… hopefully, I´ll be done with that book this week -fingerscrossed-, and next week I should probably be able to start with my March reads.

Anyway, this time choosing the books was kind of a challenge, ´cause the only thing that came to my mind when thinking about march was… well Spring, and while I enjoy the YA genre -although sometimes I question why I read it at all-, I didn´t want to read only that in March, so… I had to think more about other things related to March -at least in my country- besides spring, so this list is a little all over the place, but I suspect that will also be the case with some other months so… without further ado, here we go:

Books to be My Valentine

Calling my name

8908081eae330583c43629481bd0b107Yes, I know. We´re basically halfway through February, and I´m just posting my book picks of the month; but since today is Valentine´s, I figured it was a good day as any to post the books that I intended to read this month.

Last month, ´cause I knew I wouldn´t have that much time, I planned on reading only 3 books -I think-, but in the end, even that turned out to be too many, since Middlemarch turned out to be a way more difficult read than expected.

Anyway, this month, I´m back to making things difficult for myself, since I have 4 books listed, and I´m still reading the first one -there are so many things to do!-, so… let´s see how things turn around this month.

Here are my Valentine´s Day book picks:

Books to Star the Year Anew

Calling my name

favim-com-alinajanuary-book-clock-letters-lights-339792I´m a little late to this post due to the fact that I got a little behind with my Christmas reads -I just finished Navidad en las Montañas yesterday- and that my book club just decided yesterday in which book we are going to read this month.

Anyhow, like I´m making a habit of, for January I decided to read books that had to do with the New Year or at least talk about new beginnings, changing your life, etc. -with the exception of the book for the book club I´m in-.

So…, doing this actually turned more difficult than the two previous ones ´cause 1) I originally intended for all of the books to be about the New Years -and I could find that many in such a short notice-, and 2) I didn´t take into consideration that one of the books I listed -and already began- it´s longer than expected, so… I had to eliminate another book if I wanted to read the one listed on the book club -and one of my unspoken New Year´s resolutions is to read more of the books chosen there-.

And that´s pretty much it, so with nothing else to say, here´s my list:

Christmas Books Caroling My Name!

Calling my name

Christmas is here! Well, sort of…., I mean is December and Christmas is coming so since last month I made a list of all the books I wanted to read before November ended -which I did! by the way-, and I had previously pretty much abandoned this section of my blog, I decided to do it again.

The only difference is that this time instead of reading monster´s and ghost´s stories, I decided to go for Christmas and winter stories because… Christmas?

1-1

I mean, I don´t really like Christmas that much, but I also don´t hate the celebration. So, let´s just say it´s not that big of a deal for me, and that probably has something to do with my family life, but that´s something for another post.

Anyway, this Christmas I´m trying to be more positive and give it a try, so… I´m actually participating in some traditions -some of which are from my country, other´s American, and a mix of both- and reading Christmas books! Hence my list:

Halloween & Día de Muertos Books Whispering to me

Calling my name

I usually dedicate this section to the books I really, really wish to read. The ones that keep teasing me with their synopsis and Goodreads keeps on pushing my way.  But since I have only written 2 posts in this section -not counting this one-, I have decided to
do something a little different and make a sort of book list per month -or 2 months-.

I have sort of done something like this in my comic book posts, so… the rules to apply here will be kind of similar.

capturaAnyway, in this instance, I decided to go with books that gave me a kind of Halloween and Día de Muertos feeling, ´cause that´s basically October and November -at least in regards to festivities-  are all about in my country if you leave the 20 de noviembre behind -revolutions day-

And I know that October is almost over, but this just makes it more fun to see if at least I´ll manage to finish one book in a week, right?

Anyhow, these are my  October-November picks -warning I don´t like horror-:
