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!

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”

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:

Goodbye Rudy Kazoody by A.A. Freda

Loved it-hated it

Who the heck is Rudy Kazoody?!

We might never know, the world might never know, and you know what…, that´s alright, ´cause in the end, like Spike -one of, if not the main character of the book- points out it doesn´t really matter-, what really matters here is the journey and the things that the things that you learn through it.

Dead Over Heels by Theresa Braun

Loved it-hated it

Well… I didn´t see that comming

It´s been a very long time since I last had the opportunity to read a book thank´s to the author, so… I really wish I had something better to say about this book ´cuase as you might know -if you read my list of books to read in June– I was really excited about it! But in the end… it turns it wasn´t my cup of tea.

I mean is not that it is a bad story, just that… in this case, I think that a longer book was really needed in order for the story to develop in a better way (or at least in my opinion).

Anyhow, allow me to explain:

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!
