Ten Characters Who Are Fellow Book Nerds





Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I want to share with you ten character who are fellow nerds. I have to say that I thought this list was going to be very easy to make since I really enjoy reading books that  have characters who read or have a bookstore, but when I started making the list, it was hard to find characters and the ones I've found, they are not very original.

368916 


Helene Hanff. I know she is not a character, she was real, but I think she is the perfect fellow nerds, She read, she wrote and she asked for books in a bookstore.







3 


Hermione Granger. When I read Harry Potter, I really liked when Hermione appears. You could see that she was going to come up with an idea or a spell. She was great, very intelligent and great company :)





15994711 


Elizabeth Bennet. Another woman that she was very clever and she liked to read a lot. Apart from that I really liked her because she was different from the rest of the women in the novel.






13037305 


Jo March. I really liked her. She was brave and she cared about her sisters. She read and wrote.






9715309



Jane Eyre. I really like Jane Eyre because she is a very intelligent woman.





39988 


Matilda. I really like this character because she can't stop reading :)









265262 


Budgeron. This one is a ferret that he likes reading and writing. I like him because he has struggles when he tries to write.






265262  



Danielle. She really enjoys writing, She is really good at it.







So, these are my 7 fellow book nerds. Feel free to share yours :)

Summer Reads Recommendations :D



Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I want to share with you some books that I think they are perfect to read during the summer.

The first one is the The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants Series by Ann Brashares.


45230654543646405453

This series is about 4 girls and what happens to them during 4 summers. I like the idea that the 4 girls have different personalities and, for that reason, what happens to them is completely different and also that these books deals with topic such as death, divorce, friendship, love, the first time...

The second book is another series is Scott Pilgrim series

 298002980129802


 744615Scott Pilgrim Vs. the Universe (Scott Pilgrim, #5)7904429



In this case this series is a graphic novel about a young man? (he is 23 when the story starts) and what happens to him in a year time. He starts dating a girl and he has to fight with her ex-boyfriends to start dating her. It's funny and goofy :)

The third one is Asking for trouble by Elizabeth Young.

322007 

It's about a woman who has to go to her sister's wedding, but she doesn't want to go alone, so she decides to go with an escort. Rings a bell? This book was made into movie. It's called The wedding date starred by Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney. There are differences between the book and the movie. but I loved both of them.






Finally, mystery time. I don't know why, but I always like a book by Agatha Christie during the summer. So, if you enjoy her books I highly recommend these two.

The first one is Sleeping murder

16300 

It's about a woman who moves to a new house and, for some reason, she starts remembering things, feeling irrational fears and  she doesn't know why. This one is a Miss Marple's case. i don't usually enjoy Miss Marple cases (although I'd like to) I enjoy more Poirot's cases, but this one I really enjoyed and, actually, I read during the summer.




16319 

The other one is another Miss Marple case I really enjoyed and it's called The body in the library. This one is about a body who has been found in a library andin many ways it's strange that the body was found in this library in particular. Miss Marple will help to clarify this mystery.






I hope you like my recommendations and you have here your next read :)

Book Blogger Hop!

Book Blogger Hop


                                     hosted by: Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer


Hi everyone!!! :)


Today I want to share with you Book Blogger Hop and this week the question is:





           Do you listen to audio books? 


My take:


                Actually, no. Once I heard that Neil Gaiman listened to audio books while he was working out. I tried it, but I couldn't. I really wanted to grab the book and read it because sounds very interesting. i felt that I was listening a preview of the book and not the actual book. 

              I wish I could, but I can't :(
