Mystery, Fantasy Fiction, YA Fiction, Fairytale Retellings

It is December 1st , book lovers. I’m amazed at how fast this year went by (and I’ve probably said this every month) but it is true! I feel like yesterday was March 13 and lockdown was starting here in Honduras, but no. We’ve been on quarantine for 8 months so far! To be honest some months have felt longer and dreadful than others, but it’s finally December and 2020 is coming to an end.

Popular Books I’ve Never Read and Why…

Popular Books I’ve Never Read and Why…

Cliché, Classics and Favoured… but I’m not too sure

Every book is an adventure and a story that stay with us and teaches us something. I’ve always said this and I believe it to be true. Especially those we read at a young age.

I began reading books around 7th and 8th grade and of course the first books I read were all the popular ones around the time. Yeah, you guessed it, Divergent and The Hunger Games for sure 😉

Book characters I’d love to be friends with!

Book characters I’d love to be friends with!

Charming, Courageous and Inspiring Characters

I’ve always said that reading is like escaping this reality for a while. The amazing part is that in this new world we’re submerged in, we are not alone. We are surrounded by people with so many traits, abilities and personalities. They are from different time periods, cultures, or even different species. The book characters 😀 .

Astonishing and Awe-Stricking Lines

We all have different opinions when it comes to choosing a new book to read. Some people notice the gorgeous cover first and give it a shot. Others prefer reading the summary on the back cover of a book and deciding if it sounds interesting enough.
