It's Monday! What are *you* reading?

                                            hosted by: Book Journey

Today I'm going to share with you guys what I've read last week, what I'm reading right now and I'm going to read next.

Last week I didn't finish any book so I don't think I won't be able to finish all the books in my November TBR pile :(

Now, I'm reading Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. At first the book liked so much that I turned pages very quickly but now I'm tired of some situations .Well I've just read only 100 pages so I don't know much about the story, we'll see how the whole thing develops.

Next in my pile Scones and Sensibility by Lindsay Eland.

Well, this is me, but about you?

TGIF Question

                                   hosted by: GReads!

Today the TGIF Question is: When You're Not Reading: What occupies your time when your nose isn't stuck in a book?

Well, many things and here they are:

1.- Reading your blogs. How interesting they are! :) so I spend a lot of time reading them, watching videos and listening to music you put on them.

2.- Knitting. I make this on and off but it relaxes me a lot!

3.- Baking. I love making cakes, cookies, etc. I don't make much of this recently since I can't eat them and Christmas is so clooose but after that I'm going to try to make Cookie Moster Cupcakes. Cool! :)

4.- Studying English. Because of my job I need to learn English although I've always been good at English in school and high school so it's not a punishment. Besides, thanks to you for your blogs I've improved in my reading (of course, you write such amazing things and recommend such good books that it's impossible not to improve:)) In my listening, since I watch your videos without subtitles and look up words, for example quirky, pet peeve, etc. I hadn't any clue what they meant before. Thanks for following my blog, it makes me improve in writing plus I really enjoy talking about books :)  So, thanks, thanks, because you don't notice but I'm learning a lot from you, guys :)

5.- Fencing. I have just started taking classes and I'm not very good at it. It's very complicated because of the movements you have to do but it's very funny.

Well, this is me, but what about you?

Top Ten Authors I'd Love To Have At My Thanksgiving Feast

                                   hosted: The Broke and The Bookish

Well, today is ten authors I'd love to have at my thanksgiving feast. Here is my list:

1.- Neil Gaiman. I've enjoyed so much with his  books that I want to include him.

2.- Paul Auster. The same with Paul Auster , he has a particular world and it would be really cool if I could discuss with him in the dinner.

3.- Miguel Delibes. I watched him in several interviews and I loved to listen him talking. It's a pity he died two years ago. So, I definitely put in this table.

4.- Carmen Martin Gaite. Another special author who died in 2000 who deserves all the attention. She has a very particular world and I looooooooooove it :)

5.- Charlotte Bronte. My favorite character is undoubtedly Jane Eyre so I really want to have her in my table.

Well, this is me, what about your? :)

It's Monday! What are *you* reading?

                                            hosted by: Book Journey


Here I am a week more to share with you what I read, what I'm reading right now, what I am going to read next.

Last week I didn't finish any book but the previous one I finished Forever by Maggie Stiefvater. Although I liked it , I was a little disappointed in some parts because they were longer than I expected, but, anyway, the end I liked it :)

This week I'm reading Anna and the French kiss by Stephanie Perkins. I am so grateful to people like Misty talked in her blog about and made me buy it. I'm enjoying very much although at first I didn't like another story which the main character was a teenager. It's because I read so many books lately about teenagers that I'm a bit tired of it. But this one is great! :)

Well, next in my pile Scones and sensibility by Lindsay Eland.

This is me, but what about yours?  :)

The comeback, TGIF Question and Book beginnings

Here I am again! :) puf, it's been 2 weeks since the last time I wrote here. I'm sorry if you saw some posts where there was nothing written on them. Sorry :( 
Today I'm going to answer first the TGIF Question.

                                      hosted by: GReads!

Today is :Giving Thanks: Which books are you most thankful for receiving from other bloggers, friends, family members, or publishers?

Well, it's always nice that someone remembers you, specially if they give you a book ^^ These are my list of books I'm very grateful to receive. Thanks :)
The first book which comes to my mind it's this one : Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. Now, I'm reading it and enjoying every page of it. So, thanks for this present :)

The second book is Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf. A friend of mine gave me to me as a present. I'd already read the book but she gave to me to have the occasion to re-read as many times as I wanted. So, thanks a lot.

Another book which I've received is The golden book by Doris Lessing. I was looking for this book for ages and somebody found it and gave to me and in English :) Many thanks :) 

Finally, Coraline. I read this book in Spanish and I loved it, but somebody thought that it was really cool to have my own copy in English :)

                                              hosted by: A Few More Pages

Today I'm going to write the first sentences of the book I'm enjoying so much reading it right now. The book is Anna and the French kiss.

" Chapter one. Here is everything I know about France: Madeline and Amélie and Moulin Rouge." I read this sentence and I cracked up :)

Well, this is me for today, Happy Friday! :)

2011 goodreads choice award!

Hi everyone!!! :)

I've just discovered Goodreads has an annual election for the book of the year. All the books seem so cool that you want to vote all of them :) and now, I can't wait for the results.

Lauren Oliver talks about this too in her blog. Two of her books are in the list, Delirium and Liesl & Po. Appparently, Delirium is in several categories. I enjoyed so much with Delirium that I decided to vote for it. Unfortunately, I haven't read Liesl & Po yet. So I didn't vote for this one. It's a pity because it's in my November TBR, but anyway, next time.

Top Ten Books I Had VERY Strong Emotions About (cry, laugh, hurl across the room, etc.)

                                   hosted by : The Broke and the Bookish

Well, this week is about what books made me cry or laugh or hurl and here is my list.

1.- Tuesday with Morrie by Mitch Albom. In some parts I laughed and in other parts I cried because everything in the book was so true and Morrie was such a wise person that it was impossible not to feel something.

2.- Flowers in the attic by Virginia Andrews. Puf! with this book I think I suffered all the moods. I felt hatred for some characters, I felt pity for others and I cried because it's a very sad story.

3.- Shit my dad says by Justin Halpern.With this book, I laughed especially at the beginning and at the end of the book. I laughed so much that I cried :)

4.- Never let me go by Kazuo Ishiguro. Puf! I suffered very much with this book when I felt something wrong was going to happen. I liked so much the characters that I didn't want something happened to them.

5.- Reads like a novel by Daniel Pennac. With this book, I felt freedom, freedom to do whatever you want. I liked very much reading it.

6.- Bad karma by David Safier. This book is really really funny. I laughed a lot and I almost cry at the beginning and at the end the book because it was so sad and beautiful at the same time :)
7.- Jesus loves me by David Safier. The same as the previous one. Maybe, I felt more identify with the main character of this book than the previous. In both cases, I laughed a loooooooooooot

8.- Open all nigh by David Tueba. In this case, I cried at the end because it was sooooo unfair and so sad at the same time.

So, this is my list but what about yours?
