November TBR: how I did it

Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I want to share with you the books I managed to read in October. This meme is hosted as always by Misty from The Book Rat.

These are the books that I wanted to read this month


And these are the books I've read

These book is a collection of short stories which some I loved, but other were OK. My favourite ones were Extraordinary little cough, Patricia, Edna and Arnold and Where Tawe flows.

I love all the books by Maitena. She is really funny, she knows how women behave and what women have to deal with. I highly recommend you. They are great reads.
This one this disappointed me a bit because I thought the story was going to be in another way. It was less exciting that I thought it would be.

I have only read The librarian and the robbers and it was a great read!. It's a very short story about a librarian who is kidnapped by a group of robbers. It's an adorable story which you can easily read in half an hour or so. I highly recommend it especially to those who love books.

This is the third book by Richard Bach I've read and as always it was really good. I love that the books are similar but at the same time they are completely different. 

Wow, this book was a really good treat for me. It's a normal story which lately I find difficult to find in a book who writes his experiences in a diary. I looooooooooooooooooooooved it. It was so great and so funny that I want to read it again. I laughed soooo much. It was perfect :)

This one let me down a bit. I really enjoyed The uncommon reader by the same author. I think I read in one day and it was great. t first, this one is interesting, but later the stories don't appeal me very much. 

I expected more from this book. In some pages, I was amazed because the story was soooo good, but in other parts I though the author relsolved the thing better. In some parts I was confused if I understood the double sense, but in other parts the development was so great that I really enjoyed reading them.

Well, this is me, but what about you?

Hi everyone!!! :)

So today I want to share the fist lines of the book I'm reading right now.

Here they are

"Stave one


Marley was dead, to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that"

Yes, this is the perfect time for this book. I haven't read it before so I'm really excited about it although I know more or less the story. I've 40 pages or so and I like it. I think I'm going to like it.

Well, this is me, but what about you?

Library book haul

Hi everyone!!! :)

So today I want to show you another library book haul. Yesterday I went to the library and I borrowed these two books

They are:

Just listen by Sarah Dessen. Lately I have heard nothing but good things about the books by Sarah Dessen, so when I saw this one in the library, I thought it would be good to give it a try.

Lost in a good book by Jasper Fforde. I didn't know that Thurday Next was a series, so I bought the third book. When I found out there were several books, I borrowed the first book in the series and I liked. So, today I borrow the second book and I hope to read it soon in order to read the third one at last.

well, this is me, but what about you?

Top Ten Most Anticipated Books For 2013

                                      hosted by: The Book and the Bookish

Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I want to share with you the books I can't wait to come out. It's a short list because I can't think of other books, but anyway, these books, I think, are going to be amazing reads and I can't wait to have them in my hands.

Here is the list

I've already read the other two and I loved them. I like the story, the ideas, everything. They were very funny and quick reads. On one hand, I want to finish the series, but on the other hand, I can't believe that this is the end.

Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins. This is a book stand alone, but in some way I hope it is connected with Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the next door, the other two books by Stephanie Perkins which by the way I loooooooooooved. I read them very quickly in spite of the fact they have 350 pages. They were amazing. If you haven't read them, I hope you give them a try.

I have only read Delirium, but I can't wait to have the complete series released. I think Delirium was great. I hope the rest of the books don't let me down.

I really loved the statistical of love at first sight by this author and when I read the blurb of this book, I added it to my TBR quickly. It seems to me it is going to be a great read, very interesting. I don't know, we'll see.

Well, this is me, but about you?

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

                                   hosted by : Book Journey

Hi everyone!!! :)
How is it going? I hope you guys are OK.

So, today I want to share with you the books I read last week, the books I'm reading right now and the books I want to read next.

Last week I finished 3 books

I really loooooooooooooooooooooved this book and I highly recommend it. The story is really simple. It's about a boy who decides to write a diary where he put his feelings, but the way is written is so hilarious than I couldn't barely put it down. I think I laughed every single page.

I really loved The uncommon reader by Alan Bennett. I read it in a day. But this one was a different kettle of fish. At first I liked, but I didn't like that the story wasn't  more about anecdotes about the lady in the van in a chronological order, I got the impression that it was a way Alan Bennet had to put his feelings and thoughts down. Maybe, I'm totally wrong.

This one let me down. I hoped to enjoy very much and although some pages I looooooooved because they were great, I hope the stories were explained with more detail and the point of the story, because in some cases the idea were exposed crystal clear, but in other cases I didn't know what to think.

Sundays in bed with...

                        hosted by: Midnight Book Girl

Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I want to share with you the book I'm spending the day with.

Well, I have just started the book and I like it. I don't know if I finish it because lately I'm starting so many books, but I don't finish any of them. Maybe I finish this one.

Well, this is me, but what about you?

Saturday quote

Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I want to share with you some lines I've found in my reads which I've thought they were wise, interesting or simply funny.

 This is the book where I saw the lines

And these are the lines:

"Until you understand that, you will wonder why people are unhappy. They are unhappy because they have chosen to be unhappy, and Richard, that it's all right!"

Well, I think yes, we are free to do whatever we want and if we are in a situation which we don't like and we are there for years and we don't fight to get out there, yes, I think, we like to be there because otherwise we'll do something. But, having said that I believe that this is not that easy. There are other factors that can't let us to make an important decision or maybe we are blind to see and we don't realise what's going on. I think life is complicated and we have to try to be happy or at least try not to be unhappy all the time, try to find something which we like and we are happy with it. I hope you guys find that thing that makes you feel great :)

Well, this is me, but what about you?

Hi everyone!!! :)
Well, today I want to share with you the beginning of this book 

"Sunday 4 April
My father has send a telegram to the Ministry of Defence. He wants to participate in the war with Argentina"
I hope I've written the sentences right because I've translated them from my Spanish copy. If something is wrong, just let me know.
Well, I've just started the book and I love it. I have only read a few pages and I've laughed several times. This book is the second book in the series of Adrian Mole. I've recently read the first one and I looooved it. I think I read it very quickly because I was enjoying it very much. I highly recommend the first one because it was hilarious and I think this one is going to be as funny as the first one. I hope it won't let me down.

Well, this is me, but what about you?

Library Book Haul

Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I want to do something "different" from I'm normally use to doing. I want to share with you the books I've borrowed this week from my library. In my town, I have the possibility to go to two libraries, so I'm going to show you the books I borrowed from both.

Here are the books

Well, as you can see, they are translated into Spanish, but no worries I'll translated the titles into English, although I'm sure you recognised some from the spine.

From the top to the bottom

Count Karlsten by Philip Pullman. I know Philip Pullman because of the trilogy His Dark Materials. I liked the books and I read others. I didn't know this one existed until I saw in the library, but the cover was so beautiful and it seemed an interesting read that I decided to pick up.

Ferret Chronicles. Rescue Ferrets at Sea by Richard Bach. I'm a huge fan of Richard Bach. I have read several books and I loved all of them, so when I saw this one in the library I took it right away. At first, I didn't know if the author of this book was the same Richard Bach had read, and yes he is. It surprised me because this book seems to be for children and I thought Richard Bach'd only wrote for adults. I've read a bit and I like it.

The mortal instruments. City of bones by Cassandra Clare. Yes! I borrowed this book too. The reason I haven't read this book is because I started reading Clockwork angel. the infernal devices series and I didn't want to mix up stories, but since I really want to read all of them, I don't care any more.

On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. I know that most of you liked this book, but it hasn't been until I saw two bloggers to try to convince people to read this book soooo hard that I decided to give it a chance.

Beautiful creatures by Kami García and Margaret Stohl. The same thing happened with this one. Two Vlogger said that they enjoyed reading it soooo much that I decided to borrow it.

No! I don't want to join a bookclub by Virginia Ironside. I don't know how I found this in goodreads, but the tittle grabbed my attention very much.I looked for it in the library and fortunately I found it. I read a few pages and I liked it. I hope it doesn't let me down.

Well, this is me, but what about you? What do you borrow from the library? Feel free to share :)

Top Ten Authors I'm Thankful For

                                      hosted by: The Book and the Bookish

Hi everyone!!! :)

Well, today I'm going to say which authors I'm grateful with.

Here is the list

John Green. Yes, he must be in this list :) I'm thankful because he is a very interesting person who makes me think and want to be a better person. Specially, I'm thankful to him for writing An abundance of Katherines. It's one of my favourite books. I love the way Colin is and the way he loves Maths. I really want to have the same feeling for maths, but anyway I really loved the book and I highly recommend to read it and watch the Green's channel.

Ann Brashares. I'm very thankful to this person because she changes me thanks to her books. Apart from the fact that the Sisterhood travelling pants series are really great books, Ann helped me to understand other people who are totally different to me and I didn't understand them. That gave me peace of mind.

David Levithan and Rachel Cohn. Thanks for writing my two favourite books: Nick and Norah infinite playlist and Dash and Lily' s book of dares. I think they know how a teenager feels at that time, they made me remember when I was a teenager and I liked staying outside with my friends and met a special guy :)

Maitena. Lately I was feeling a bit sad and her books cheered me up a lot. They are great and not only because they are funny but also because she knows how a woman feels and how to put in a stripe which I find it really hard. I felt identified with the women and their relationships with their boyfriend or husband. I highly recommend them, they are a great read.

Sue Townsend. I'm really thankful to her for her book The secret diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 3/4. Never in my life had I laughed this much while I'm reading a book. It was AMAZING :)

Stephanie Perkins. I really love her book: Anna and the French kiss and Lola and the boy next door. They were reads that I enjoyed very much and by the way I read quite quickly because they were easy to read.


Kazuo Ishiguro. I want to thank him for his book Never let me go. It made me think a lot about human beings, science and love. It's been a year since I read it and from time to time I use to thinking about it. I think it's because there are too many interesting ideas on it.

Marjane Satrapi. Conflicts are not easy to understand specially if you live far away from they're happening, but I think Marjane Satrapi made an excellent work with her novel Persepolis. It's funny and serious at the same time which I think it's really difficult to do. A quite good novel which I highly recommend.

Well, this is me, but what about you?

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

                                   hosted by : Book Journey

Hi everyone!!! :)

How is it going? I hope you are OK. For me, last week was a strange week in which I read books which were not in my November TBR.

Last week I read

I really loved this book. It's a really cute story with Quentin Blacke illustrations. It's a very short story which I recommend you if you are a lover of books :)
(What I read was The Librarian and the Robbers)

I also finished this book. I really love books written by Richard Bach, they are full of wisdom. The books teach you how to see life with an open mind, how to fight to get amazing things, how not to give up. I don't know how to explain it, I think you should give it a try.

Now I'm reading

I really love this book. It's amazing. It makes me laugh a lot in every single page. The story is quite simple, it's about a boy who writes a diary, but the way Sue Townsend puts the story in it, wow, it's really great.

I like this book, but I enjoyed more reading The uncommon reader, which, by the way, I read in one day. This one is funny, but it is difficult for me to read although it's in Spanish. Maybe it was because I was a bit sick when I started it. I don't know.

Next in my pile

I don't know what I'm going to rad next because lately I'm a bit sick and it's hard to read in English, but I'm going to choose this one from my pile.

Well, this is me, but what about you?
