Is Begining To Smell A Lot Like… Christmas Books!

Calling my name

christmas-books-ftrChristmas is here! Well… according to stores in my country, and Netflix. Christmas has been here pretty much since late October/early November, but as someone who likes to celebrate Christmas on Christmas, and gives their time to Halloween and Día de Muertos, yeah, Christmas is just arriving.

Therefore once again I have a list of books I’m hoping I’ll be able to read before the year ends somewhen between all the work I have to do, the visiting family thing, making dinner, baking cookies, receiving guests at home, etc.

But since I’m nothing if not hopeful, and maybe a little ambitious here’s my December TBR list, all of it, winter or Christmas related!

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.

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!

Watch list

Shounen-ai/Yaoi Mangas that Should Definitely be Animes! Pt1.- Asterisk by Morimoto Shuu

Watch list

So, after watching Hitorijime My Hero and writing my thoughts about it, I started to think about the lack of yaoi/shounen-ai animes -especially when compared with the yuri/shoujo ai ones-, as well as how the ones made always seem to go along the same lines.

With the delicate/fragile/kind of airheaded uke, forceful/stoic/kind of a dick seme, one of them always been perfect at housework, the nonconsensual interactions if not right out rape, etc.

Which made me think that maybe just maybe, in order to get this genre more appreciated we need some other type of shounen-ai/yaoi animes?

´Cause there are some good stories out there that not necessarily fall into these tropes and that I think would make awesome animes! And so…, here I am, with my first post on shounen-ai/yaoi mangas that I think should definitely get an anime!

Ok, technically speaking some of this movies have already premiered, but since I still haven´t watched any of them, I figured I was still in time.

Anyhow this month, there are also so many movies I want to watch! But unfortunately… money, still an issue. So, once again here´s my list of the movies I´d definitely watch asap at the cinema and those which… we´ll see.


Ok, técnicamente hablando, algunas de estas películas ya se estrenaron, pero como no he visto ninguna, pensé que aún estoy a tiempo,

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.
