    Bookstagram? Should I have one?

    hello my little bookworms, how are you today? So, today I’ll talk a little about Bookstagram and answer the question many friends ask me. Should I open a bookstagram? I’ll give you 4 simple reasons why you should open a bookstagram if you’re a book lover. First of all, bookstagram (booksta for short) is the informal term given to Instagram accounts that post only bookish related things. This is books, book reviews, recommendations, lists, book trailers, cosplay, characters edits, memes, and so much more! I opened my bookstagram last December, and even though I’ve been there for only 4 months, it has been one of the best decisions ever. Bookstagram…

    A review of the trilogy everyone is talking about

    Hello, my little bookworms! here I am again and today we’ll talk about the very acclaimed-soon-to-be-a-Netflix-show fantasy trilogy… The Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo!!!! First of all, I’m going to say that I’m very excited about the upcoming show even though I didn’t find the trilogy that good. Of course, my excitement it’s absolutely and utterly because of the plot… …well, the cast it’s not that bad either. Anyway, the books. OK. So, this trilogy was on my TBR for quite a long time. It was quite hyped over bookstagram. Hence, I wanted to read it and see if it was as good as everyone said. Just then, a…

    Relationshipper Book Tag

    *This post contains spoilers for the series ACOTAR, TOG, and Shadow and bone trilogy* I was supposed to write this tag so but so long ago, but hey better late than ever, right? I was tagged by the lovely Karley from Bookish-fawn. Thank you so much, Karley! This is such a fun tag! So without further ado, let’s get on with it. I have to say I’m a tad nervous about this, but super excited. 1) If you could date a fictional character who would it be and why? This is so hard! But I think I’ll go with Azriel from the ACOTAR series. He’s just my favourite. I love…

    One Day by David Nicholls Review

    How to even start to write this review? I’ve thought this a couple of days because I’m genuinely conflicted. I decided to read this book because I loved the movie. I usually like to read the book before watching the movie, but, I had no idea it was a book until the movie finished. So it has been on my TBR for quite some time. So here I am. Torn. via GIPHY I know many people hated this novel, and I don’t blame them. I love it and hate it at the same time. So here is what I think: I loved the dynamic of storytelling. The same day every…

    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…
