May Wrap-up

Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I want to share with you the books I've read in May. As you can see I've recorded myself to tell you my thoughts about them. I don't what happened with this video, but it was for me really, really hard to find the words to explain what I felt about the books. So, I recorded it several times and this one, I think, it's the best version. It's not as great as I expected because you can see that I'm very serious in the video because I was tired of recording it and I wanted to finish it. Luckily, I smile the rest of the video. 

I hope you enjoy it and tell me what you've read in May and if you knew my books.


Books I mention:

Hipnotizing Maria by Richard Bach
At Last (Lucky Harbor #5) by Jill Shalvis
Woman of verse in breast by Gloria Fuertes

Well, this is all for me. I hope you have a great weekend. I'll see you tomorrow :)

Top Ten Tuesday Freebie

                                      hosted by: The Book and the Bookish
Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I want to share with you MY TOP TEN BOOK COVERS OF THE BOOKS I HAVEN'T READ YET .
 
Maybe this topic seems to you a bit lame since the last top ten was about covers of the book I've read. But, when I did that meme I realised that I owned books with really gorgeous covers that I couldn't share because I hadn't read the book yet. 
 
Soooo, here they are
 
Petite Anglaise. Catherine SandersonSean Griswold's HeadThe Silver Linings PlaybookClub Dead (Sookie Stackhouse, #3)The Book of Tomorrow
 

 
The GiftDo You Come Here Often?Suite Scarlett (Scarlett, #1)Sisters Red (Fairytale Retellings, #1)Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1)

Yes, I know most of them they are very famous and they are being praised by many people. I'm going to try to read them as soon as possible.

It's Monday! What are you reading?


                                              hosted by : Book Journey


Hi everyone!!! :)

Here I am again to share the books I read last week, I'm reading and what book I want to read next.

Last week I finished

At Last (Lucky Harbor, #5)


Ooooo I loved this book. It was amazing. I really loved the both characters and how they were when they were together.











Now I'm reading

Vision in White (Bride Quartet, #1)Vision in white by Nora Roberts. OMG! I love this book sooooooooooooo much. It's amazing. I chose this book since I saw it in a blog as a part of the Top Ten Books you read when you need something light. I'm so glad that I picked it up. It's cute and adorable and although it's quite thick for me I'm reading it quite quickly. I hope the ending doesn't let me down. We'll see.






Next

Ferret chronicles. Air ferrets aloft by Richard Bach.This one is the second part in the Ferret chronicles. I really loved the books by Richard Bach and especially these ones because they are for children. The story of the first book was lovely and the pictures on it were really cute. I’m really excited about this one because I think I'm going to enjoy very much.

And you, what are you reading today?

Sundays in bed with...

Hi everyone!!! :)
 
So, today I'm spending the day with this book
 
 Vision in White (Bride Quartet, #1)
 
I loooooooove it.  I hoped to like it, but I didn't expect to love this much. I borrowed it from the library when I saw a book lover recommended it in her blog as a book she (I think she was a woman) read it when she needed something light and funny to read. So far, it's really interesting, funny and lovely. I highly recommend it. I'm on page 120 in just 2 days. I hope to finish next week and I'll tell you my thoughts about it.

Well, this is my book, but what's yours??? :)

My Book Jar!!! :D

Hi everyone!!! :)

I don't know if you know what a book jar is, but I think it's a cool idea especially for book lovers who find difficult to pick up a book in the amount of books they have on their shelves.

To do a book jar the only thing you need is:

- a jar

- Some pieces of paper

- a pen or pencil

- a million of books waiting for you to read :)

So, the only thing you have to do is to write your books in the pieces of paper, add them in the jar, mix all of them and every month choose your books to read them. Easy, right?

Here is my jar






I'm sooo excited about this idea that I recorded a video where I include the books and explain to you why I'm adding these books to the jar.

Naomi and Ely's no kiss list by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn
Teacher Man by Frank McCourt
If you could see me now by Cecelia Ahern
Coraline by Neil Gaiman
Do you come here often? by Alexandra Potter
ttfn by Lauren Myracle
Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares
Paper Towns by John Green
Dairy Queen by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
The Floating Admiral by Detection Club
Solar by Ian McEwan
Saturday by Ian McEwan
Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson
Death comes to Pemberley by PD. James
Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert

So, these are all the books. What do you think of these ideas? Do you like it? Do you want to try to do it too? Let me know in the comments :)

Bout and books read-a-thon (recap)




Bout of Books



Hi everyone!!! :)

This is my last post about this read-a-thon. We finished it and I have to tell it was a strange read-a-thon. I expected to participate more, but since I prefer to see what's going on in blogs rather tahn in twitter, I was lost about how other people were doing it and how many books they had read. Next time, I'll be in twitter from the very beginning :) Next time Bout of Books 8.0 will be from August 19th to 25th.

In my case, I was as good as I expected seeing my goals, but it was good since I wasn't in the mood for reading some days. At least I managed to read ONE book and I'm happy with that because I could finish one book and I enjoyed it very much. 
This is the book:


Size 12 Is Not Fat (Heather Wells, #1)



 The 13th of May:
Well, I haven't read much. I've read 13 pages of Size 12 is not fat by Meg Cabot and 5 pages from Journey to the centre of the Earth by Jules Verne.


The 14th of May:
Today I've read 3 chapters more of  Journey to the centre of the Earth by Jules Verne. Much better than I expected. I'm glad to have started this book :)

The 15th of May:
I've read 20 pages of Size 12 is not fat by Meg Cabot and one chapter of Journey to the centre of the Earth. Yes, I'm not reading as much as I'm used to reading, but anyway the little I read it's worth because the books are really good :)
The 16th of May:
I've read 10 pages of Size 12 is not fat by Meg Cabot
 
The 17th of May:
I've read 40 pages of Size 12 is not fat by Meg cabot

The 18th of May: 
I've read  45 pages of Size 12 is not fat by Meg Cabot and with this I've ended the book Whoooaaa!!! :) it was a great read. I highly recommend it to YOU :)
The 19th of May:

I managed to read 100 pages of At last by Jill Shalvis and 10 pages of Journey to the centre of the Earth.

Sundays in bed with... This time with 2 books


  hosted by: Midnight Book Girl
Hi everyone!!! :)
So as the post says I'm spending the day not only with one book, but with two books :)


These are they:

 Journey to the Center of the EarthAt Last (Lucky Harbor, #5)


I really love both of them. Journey to the centre of the Earth is an interesting adventure. I'm not used to reading this kind of story and I'm enjoying it very much. I hope to read more books of this type and more books by Jules Verne.  As far as At last is concerned, it's not a surprise I like this book so much since I've read the other 4 books in the series and I enjoyed them very much. I love the main characters very much. They are great :)

Well, these are the books I'm spending the day and you, what are your books?

Top Ten Books Dealing With Tough Subjects (abuse, suicide, grief etc or something personal hard for you)


                                      hosted by: The Book and the Bookish



Hi everyone!!! :)


So, today I want to bring you my Top Ten Books dealing with tough subjects.I don't usually read books about tough stuff, what's more, I try to avoid them as much as I can. I don't feel comfortable. But, sometimes you get a  great book that you really want to read and it's about a topic which you don't like, you try to deal with the topic the best you can. Here are ten books which dealing with tough subjects or at least it seems to me. I liked all of them except one which I haven't finished yet, so I don't have the whole picture of the story, but so far it's really good :)

El diario de un indio a tiempo parcialttyl (Internet Girls, #1)Simply Irresistible (Lucky Harbor, #1)
El mundo amarilloAt Last (Lucky Harbor, #5)Just Listen
One DayPS, I Love YouAnna and the French Kiss (Anna and the French Kiss, #1)







La vida imaginaria













I was going to explain why I chose these books and what the topic is, but when I was going to explain it, I realised that I would have to give away too much and it would spoil some surprises of some books. If you are really interested in knowing, leave me a comment and I'll tell you.

Well, these are all my books, but what is your Top Ten? :)
