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!

The Last Valentine by Felix Alexander

Loved it-hated it

A true valentine to Valentine´s.

As I mentioned in my previous post about my Valentine´s book list, it´s been a very long time since I last had the opportunity to read a book thanks to @Booktasters and not because I didn’t want to -quite the contrary-, but because this year I have decided to have an specific theme per month -or at least try to- and ´til now, I didn´t feel like the books they had available fitted with the theme.

But luckily, this month there was The Last Valentine by Felix Alexander, who right from the beginning I got, has the soul of a real poet.

32978448´Cause besides its surprisingly thrilling political-historical story, packed in mysteries; The Last Valentine is really and ode to love and romance, and I mean all kinds of it; from the passionate one, to the possessive one, the obsessive one; the love born of patience and understanding, of words and communication; the love that like a flame is ignited instantly, the one that is everlasting, the one that is meant to be, the one that´s forbidden, earned, given, that destroys and lifts spirits, etc.

This book is all about it, the different notions of love and the actions that people commit because of it, so it shouldn´t come as a surprise that I absolutely loved it!

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 in the page with number you got
  • Repeat step 2 and 3 but with the number of lines in 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:

Perhaps something in the shaking hands, the trembling shrillness of the voice, warned him that the denial was too vehement, that its very insistence was itself a suspect.

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:
