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.

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!

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:

Battle Royale: A battle of a reading

Early reading thoughts

 

At this point I think something is wrong with me, or maybe I have so many things on my mind that I haven´t been able to focus on the things that I want; ´cause it´s been a little bit more than a month and I don´t see an ending to the reading of this book.

And honestly is not because the book is bad, quite the contrary it´s a pretty good although it does start pretty slow.

I have seen the Battle Royale movies and read the mangas, so… I have wanted to read this book for years; that´s why when one of my friends bought this remastered edition I practically begged her to let me read it once she finished it.

Since she finished and lent me the book, it has been almost a month and I´m not closer to finishing it than I was 2 or 3 weeks ago, and I can´t for the life of me figure out why? After all is not as it I find it boring, or at least that´s what I think since I kind of had to stop reading after the first few pages because the story was so detailed -extremely detailed- that I found it kind of boring and it exasperating, because I wanted the story to begin fully from the get go.

This description and mentioning of the number of the student that are being presented every freaking time, has kept going until know  and I haven´t gotten used to it at all,  what´s worse it has pulled me out of the story more than once. Outside of that I like the book and the main charaters -at least Shuya and Shogo, I have some problems with Noriko that I hope that changes sooner than later-

So… even if this bloody, violent, extremely descriptive book it´s giving me quiet the battle, I´m looking forward to each reading and to the moment I finally finish this book.

Have this ever happened to you? why do you think it happens? Did you finish enjoying the book?

The Maze Runner- “The Scorch Trial”: Out of the maze, still running

Movie Thoughts

I must confess that… I read all “The Maze Runner” series -including the prequel-, but I was never a fan; If you were to ask me why, I  wouldn´t be able to tell you excatly my reasons ´cause I think that it´s a combination of different elements.

That being said, imagine my surprise when I saw the first movie and… I actually liked it! So… I couldn´t wait for the sequel.
