First Reads during the New Year 📚

🎉🎈Happy 2021 🎉🎈

Hello, dearies! I hope your New Year’s holiday was full of light and safety. It seems that’s what we’re wishing these days, but that’s life during pandemics.

Did you read a lot? I started reading (again… *cough* again a second time) The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon, aka Outlander 5 and I want to finish this want, but it’s long, and I haven’t had the focus to really enjoyed, I started in December but didn’t continue because there were too many distractions, family and work and you know the drill, the mundane who would not let you sit down and enjoy the book. So, I started a secondary book that ought to be shorter and quicker, and well, I’m still reading it, though I’d had a few good laughs, it’s completely different from TFC, I don’t know if you watched the movie (I have, a couple of times) but I’m reading Confessions of a Shopaholic, and it’s quite funny to see how Rebbeca finds excuses in the oddest most absurd ways to buy something, which I suppose is the point but in the book is so much in your face then it’s in the movie, but I am not reviewing right now, I was telling a story of what I’m reading, and those are the two on my phone. As for paperbacks, I have The Red Scrolls of Magic, Magnus and Alec from the Shadowhunters world, which I really, really want to read but I also want to concentrate on it. And I have a hardcover, The Brightest Night, this one, I’m more afraid than anything else to read because I feel like I’m going to be absorbed completely, and also I may cry and laugh in equal amounts.

But those are the ones I have at the top of the TBR, I’m leaving the list of these 4 next, in case you want to add them to your own list.

A Lion’s Pride – First Three

Genre: Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance

Hello, dearies! How is December going? Mine is a bit cold and expecting it to be colder as the 24th approaches. 

This one will be short as the previous, sorry if I have been a little absent from social media and given quick reviews but work has been full-time, and sleep not so constant, yet, here we are again with another set of books.

Reading Plan 2019

2019: This is What I Plan to Read

Another year came to an end, and a new year is about to make us its slave. Wow, that was deep, I know.

This new year will bring many new books, but I already have a small (*cough cough*) list of books that I want to read and I am yet to grab and sit and read without interruptions. I was supposed to start QOAAD before the year was over but that did not happen, my mundane job did not let me do it, still it is my first choice in 2019. And since I am done with The Darkest Star, which was my favourite read of the year, then I am free as a bird to obsesses over other fictional characters that will surely cause me to scream at the book. This is what I have planned.

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child

Author: Jack Thorne

Story by: J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne

This is not going to be easy. Stories from the past might blend in. Tales of old might be thrown in here. If you read it, you surely loved it, if you saw the play, you surely loved every part of it.

I cannot believe I did not write about this one before, my lack of Harry Potter reviews in the blog is by no means something you should worry about, nor something that should make you think that I do not love the books and movies because I do but the Wizarding World is simply to wide and amazing, and across all my networks, Pinterest specially, you can tell just how much it is that I love it after all this time. Let us begin.

Outlander & Dragonfly in Amber “Review”

Author: Diana Gabaldon

Where to start? I like them enough, but I had already watched the first 2 seasons of the show, and I must say they are pretty similar to the books, I could easily picture Sam Heugham and Caitriona Balfe while reading, although Jamie is much taller in the books.

Brianna and Roger on the other hand, are nothing like in the books, sorry for the actor and actress who portray them, but they did not work for me, at the moment.

5 Quotes from Books We Love

I was just thinking about all the wonderful quotes from books that I love and decided to share a couple (alright, not a couple but 5) with you lads and lasses, simply to make your day and see if we share the same tastes today.

Honestly we may love many quotes from many books, so choosing only 5 is kind of difficult but if you want more, you can always go to my Pinterest or Twitter or Facebook and find more there, I might not post daily but there are some quotes there that I think you will want to share. Oh! Also my Tumblr, either in Spanish or English.
