    Last Christmas in Paris Review

    It’s review time! And of course, it’s necessary to talk about a Christmas book during Christmas season. As you know, this book was in my Christmas TBR this year. And I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!!! I had really high expectations but it surpassed them all. I read the prologue and I was already in love with it. So, first thing first. This book is written in an epistolary format, that means, the story is told only by letters. However, there are some short parts written in first person as a normal book. And it makes it even more lovely. This format makes it impossible to…

    THE MOST EXCITING CHRISTMAS BOOKS

    Spanish below – Español más abajo Christmas season is here!!!!  I love Christmas. I think is my favourite holiday by far. And, of course, Christmas wouldn’t be complete without some cheesy Christmas romance. I have some love-hate relationship with these books and movies. Like, I love to read them, but while I’m doing it is like ugh! this is sooo cheesy and tacky. So, this year I have some books on my TBR that I want to share with you. It’s quite short but, well, something is better than nothing. These are not new but I’d love to read them. We met in December I saw this book all over…
