This year has been weird, it feels like five years crammed into six months but also like time has stopped and somehow we are still in January, it’s crazy, I don’t know what time is anymore. I’ve told my friends I won’t believe I’m 20 till I get to blow out the candle with my family, so yes, I claim this as limbo year.
Today I’m here with a bittersweet book review. I was so excited for this book and a friend gave it to me as a birthday present. It promised a cute f/f romance with diverse characters and coming of age. I don’t know if I’m disappointed because I wanted to like it so mad or if I’m disappointed for all it could’ve been.
Writing a post right now feels insignificant and irrelevant with everything that is going own in the world.
Before I start, I ask you to please continue to support the Black community through donating and signing petitions as the Black Lives Matter movement is a continuous fight. Educate yourself on how to be a better ally.
Now onto the post, as you know when I read a book (or get obsessed with something) and love it I want everyone to read it and start giving reasons on why you should pick it up. Today it’s clap when you land turn (in case you don’t have enough reasons already) so let’s start:
It’s been a little while since I did my first mini reviews and though I wanted to do full reviews I’ve been having a hard time with writing reviews and this is the perfect way to share some excitement for the books I’ve been reading these past weeks.
Today I am here to show talk about three middle grade novels I listened to thanks to the free trial Scribd had when the quarantine started. They are so different from each other but still great, and I would definitely recommend the audiobooks.Read More »
I’ve been adding books to my shelves whenever I can since my twelfth birthday. I’ve always loved to read but it wasn’t till I started reading on a daily basis and taking English classes that I actually bought a book case that started multiplying with the years. Now 8 years later I have three book cases in my room (and I kind of hate how crowded it looks) and way too many books (for my liking). Read More »
You know I love giving you reasons to read books I love (I do not know if they actually work but YOLO) and today I am here with a new one! Except now I am not trying to make you read a book but make you watch one of my favorite TV series of all time *drums roll* She-ra and the Princesses of Power!! I wanted to post this last week before the release of the final season but finals are killing me and draining my brain, the bright side is that now you will be able to marathon it. Read More »
After what feel like ages I am here with a new review in which I hope I manage to make sense. And it’s weird because this is one of my most expected releases of the year but I had no idea of what it was about until I started reading it, I knew it had brujxs, LGBTQ+ characters and latinx culture and now is one of my favorite books of the year.
Why is it harder to write reviews for books we loved than for books we hated? I feel like no matter how hard I try there will be no way I can put into words how much I enjoyed reading this book and what it means to me.
I do not usually do movie reviews because by the time I finally manage to gather my thoughts in a way that kind of make sense the movie has been out for months and no one really cares about it anymore, but I really want to start making more movie and TV shows reviews because that like the other thing I enjoy besides reading.Read More »
Today I’m here with another reasons to read post and it’s turn for the amazing books on the Love Sugar Magic series: A dash of trouble, A sprinkle of spirits and A mixture of mischief by Anna Meriano.
The first book A dash of trouble was the March read for the Latinx Book Club and it was amazing, I couldn’t not continue the series so when I found out the audiobooks were available in scribd I listened to them and let me tell you, the narrator is amazing and now I am kind of obsessed with audiobooks.Read More »
