Favorite Books I Never Talk About

When i talk about books i love, i always talk about the same ones. I’ve realized this not long ago and because of that i wanted to get a shout out to the rest of the books i adore with all my heart and never give them the space they deserve. Obviously there are more books that may be on a favorite standard, but either i can recalled them this moment or i just talked about them before.

The Catcher in the Rye

Yes, i do realize having this book as a favorite is a cliche. Still, i remember reading it when i was in high school and really feeling connected to Holden. There was something different about him than any other character i’ve ever read about and so i used to call him my literary boyfriend, thinking on how we would run away together. It’s been a while since i last read the book and i can’t remember if he wanted to go east or west (i think east), but i used to write him letters every week.

Catch-22

This book changed my life and the way i write fiction. I remember the death of Snowden in the book as if i read it yeasterday. The way this book describes things, it just changed me forever. I loved the main character, and i loved the fact that his crewmate was dead in the tent and nobody cared. Like, honestly, what is this book. Can i tattoo everything on my skin, i wish i had this book on my body.

Fahrenheit 451

The book i wish i could remember by heart. If you know what i mean. At first i didn’t like this book, but by the end i was so engaged i couldn’t stop reading it. Such a remarkable book. I have scenes marked in my brain, i think i’ll never forget them.

1984

I own the same edition. I remember reading it in spanish for the first time, and how i started to talk the same way the characters did while i was reading it. I had many expectation for O’Brein, but i guess back then i wasn’t that good catching up what was gonna happen. Now it’s much easier. Another book i wish i could tattoo on my skin. Amazing book.

Flowers for Algernon

When i read this book i happened to meet a person with the same characteristics as the main character which made the experience even more interesting. Obviously the person i knew didn’t went through the treatment as the main character (Charlie) did, but he began in the same place as the person i met. It was interesting because i could see their behavior and understood more the story Charlie was going through, or so i felt.

Manuscript Found in Accra

I haven’t read much by Paulo Coelho, but this is my favorite book by him. By far the most eye opener of them all, i enjoy it so much, i love the quotes i took from it, i still think about them a lot. Still, not one of my favorite authors, i think he is pretty overrated. I know i’m being ridiculous because i keep reading his books after not liking them, but one was worth it, maybe there’s another gem out there.

I'm Thinking of Ending Things

Sometimes when i’m stressed out i like to repeat a song, a word, a phrase. I’m thinking of ending things is one of those lines i like to repeat to myself when i’m feeling anxiety. For some reason after a while it helps me get trhough the difficult time. Now, the book was the most unexpected book i’ve read in a very long time, and i adored it when i read it. Still one of my favorites.

We Have Always Lived in the Castle

Somedays i can’t stop myself from thinking about this book. It was just so eerie, i adored it. I don’t have muh to say about it, i just, felt to conected to the characters i couldn’t stop reading once i started i finished it in one sit. Remarkable and unforgettable, the story of these two sisters and what happens in this house will live with me forever.

That’s it! these are some of my favorite books, it’s a shame i don’t speak about them enough so i wanted you to know how much i love them! Do you have any books you really love but you feel like you don’t speak about them enough? Leave your comment down below!

Emil and Brighton defied the odds. They beat the Blood Casters and escaped with their lives—or so they thought. When Brighton drank the Reaper’s Blood, he believed it would make him invincible, but instead the potion is killing him.

In Emil’s race to find an antidote that will not only save his brother but also rid him of his own unwanted phoenix powers, he will have to dig deep into the very past lives he’s trying to outrun. Though he needs the help of the Spell Walkers now more than ever, their ranks are fracturing, with Maribelle’s thirst for revenge sending her down a dangerous path.

Meanwhile, Ness is being abused by Senator Iron for political gain, his rare shifting ability making him a dangerous weapon. As much as Ness longs to send Emil a signal, he knows the best way to keep Emil safe from his corrupt father is to keep him at a distance.

The battle for peace is playing out like an intricate game of chess, and as the pieces on the board move into place, Emil starts to realize that he may have been competing against the wrong enemy all along.

May’s TBR!

Hey there, everyone! I cannot believe it’s May already!

This year is running so fast! I can’t keep up. Still, i’m almost half way through my reading challenge for the year, so i decided to concentrate this month in some important books waiting for me on my TBR for the year, the eArcs i recieved from NetGalley!

So here are the books i

‘m planning on reading this month:

The Last Fallen Star (Gifted Clans #1)

Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents Graci Kim’s thrilling debut about an adopted Korean-American girl who discovers her heritage and her magic on a perilous journey to save her witch clan family.

Riley Oh can’t wait to see her sister get initiated into the Gom clan, a powerful lineage of Korean healing witches their family has belonged to for generations. Her sister, Hattie, will earn her Gi bracelet and finally be able to cast spells without adult supervision. Although Riley is desperate to follow in her sister’s footsteps when she herself turns thirteen, she’s a saram–a person without magic. Riley was adopted, and despite having memorized every healing spell she’s ever heard, she often feels like the odd one out in her family and the gifted community.

Then Hattie gets an idea: what if the two of them could cast a spell that would allow Riley to share Hattie’s magic? Their sleuthing reveals a promising incantation in the family’s old spell book, and the sisters decide to perform it at Hattie’s initiation ceremony. If it works, no one will ever treat Riley as an outsider again. It’s a perfect plan!

Until it isn’t. When the sisters attempt to violate the laws of the Godrealm, Hattie’s life ends up hanging in the balance, and to save her Riley has to fulfill an impossible task: find the last fallen star. But what even is the star, and how can she find it?

As Riley embarks on her search, she finds herself meeting fantastic creatures and collaborating with her worst enemies. And when she uncovers secrets that challenge everything she has been taught to believe, Riley must decide what it means to be a witch, what it means to be family, and what it really means to belong.

Cool for the Summer

Lara’s had eyes for exactly one person throughout her three years of high school: Chase Harding. He’s tall, strong, sweet, a football star, and frankly, stupid hot. Oh, and he’s talking to her now. On purpose and everything. Maybe…flirting, even? No, wait, he’s definitely flirting, which is pretty much the sum of everything Lara’s wanted out of life.

Except she’s haunted by a memory. A memory of a confusing, romantic, strangely perfect summer spent with a girl named Jasmine. A memory that becomes a confusing, disorienting present when Jasmine herself walks through the front doors of the school to see Lara and Chase chatting it up in front of the lockers.

Lara has everything she ever wanted: a tight-knit group of friends, a job that borders on cool, and Chase, the boy of her literal dreams. But if she’s finally got the guy, why can’t she stop thinking about the girl?

Cool for the Summer is a story of self-discovery and new love. It’s about the things we want and the things we need. And it’s about the people who will let us be who we are.

Better Together

Freaky Friday meets The Parent Trap in this sparkling and heartfelt story about sisters, second chances, finding romance, and finding yourself.

Jamie’s an aspiring standup comic in Los Angeles with a growing case of stage anxiety.

Siri’s a stunning ballerina from New Jersey nursing a career-changing injury.

They’ve both signed up for the same session at an off the grid Re-Discover Yourself Retreat in Colorado. When they run into each other, their worlds turn upside down.

Jamie and Siri are sisters, torn apart at a young age by their parent’s volatile divorce. They’ve grown up living completely separate lives: Jamie with their Dad and Siri with their Mom. Now, reunited after over a decade apart, they hatch a plot to switch places. It’s time they get to know and confront each of their estranged parents.

With an accidental assist from some fortuitous magic, Jamie arrives in New Jersey, looking to all the world like Siri, and Siri steps off her flight sporting a Jamie glamour.

The sisters unexpectedly find themselves stuck living in each other’s shoes. Soon Siri’s crushing on Jamie’s best friend Dawn. Jamie’s falling for the handsome New Yorker she keeps running into, Zarar. Alongside a parade of hijinks and budding romance, both girls work to navigate their broken family life and the stresses of impending adulthood.

Down with This Ship

Kole Miller does one thing really well: write fanfiction for the show The Space Game. Everything else is a struggle: like managing her anxiety, frequent crushes, and plans after high school. But when her blog, Spacer, wins a major fanfiction contest, her traffic soars.

With massive readership comes criticism Kole isn’t prepared for, including getting stuck in the heated ship wars surrounding the show. And then an invitation to speak at The Space Game’s official convention arrives in her inbox.

When the most competitive kids in her Creative Writing class discover Kole’s writing Spacer, her blog is taken hostage and she risks them hitting ctrl+A+del on Spacer. To win it back, Kole must face both her inner demons and the ones at Crystal Lake High before they make the drama not just about The Space Game, but about Kole herself.

Including snippets from Kole’s fanfic, emails, and text messages, Down With This Ship is sure to bring out the inner fangirl in anyone. 

Obviously i’ll try to read more than just these books, but this are the official TBR for the month!

Let’s Talk Bookish | Toxic Relationships In Literature.

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books & Dani @ Literary Lion, where a topic is presented each week and we get to share our opinions on it and spread some love among others’s opinions too!

This week’s topic: TACKLING TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS IN LITERATURE (SUGGESTED BY MIKAELA @ MIKAELA READS)

I didn’t know how to approach this topic so i will just answer the questions in the prompts as they come.

When it comes to fiction how should toxic relationships be handled?

To be honest, i never read this kind of books. Toxic relationships aren’t a topic i came across much while reading anything to be honest. I mostly prefer books about cute romances, or about friendships. I think this kind of books should be handled very carefully, as in the author aknowledging these are hard topics and taking resposibility for what they are writing.

Is it okay to portray toxic relationships?

I think it’s important to portray this kind of relationships but without glorifying them. As in, yes, you need to talk about them because people many times can see theirselves reflected in this kind of relationships and can understand the problematics of it. I think it can help people come out of this kind of relationships, and that’s something that can save lives.

How can we avoid glorifying Teacher x Student or other toxic dynamics, and is it important to try to avoid that?

I never read about about this kind of topics, but i guess they should have characters that see the problematics on the topic and be the voice of wisdom in this kind of literature? Like, many times we see problematic characters, let’s say Homer Simpson, and we know he is problematic because the characters around him have a way of showing us, the viewers, he is doing things wrong. Obviously Homer isn’t toxic, i think, he is just a little stupid, but i hope you get the idea?

How do you feel about abusive relationships in fiction?

I don’t like them, and that’s the reason i don’t go looking for this kind of books. I feel they may be important, as any other topic to be shown to people so they can pick things up when they are happening in real life, i mean, i wouldn’t opose to a book about violence, just because i’m against it in real life. I think a book is there to teach us something, so it’s the same thing about this topic. We need to learn from this kind of books and take what we learn to real life, so we can help a person in need. But i think authors should give a heads up about it being problematic and having someone to talk about it inside the book as a problematic topic. Like in Lolita… i don’t know if there is a voice of reason in that book, because i haven’t read it but we all know what happens there it’s wrong, and i hope there was a way of seeing that inside the book itself.

What about in adult dark romance?

I don’t understand the appealing in this kind of books, so sorry. But you need to understand i don’t usually read “Adult” fiction at all. It contains topics i don’t enjoy or like, and that is the main reason i stick with YA literature, i find it more adorable and easy to digest than what happens in adult fiction. Not to say i don’t read some thrillers or such, i enjoy Stephen King and Harlan Coben books, but not books about adult relationships most of the time because they touch topics i don’t get nor i am interested in them. I just like cute little romances with happy endings and fictional worlds, or more like magic. But anyway i undertsand that as i like cute high school sweethearts with happy endings, there are people loooking for something stronger. I just need them to understand that some of that stuff is wrong.

I’m not sure if i’m making any sense in this topic, i just don’t enjoy the abuse of power in relationships, i had to google what is a dark romance because i had no idea. I think for this time being i’ll stick to my YA literature, i don’t even real New Adult fiction, just books about happy or sad teenagers, their relationships and sometimes superpowers. Yes, i think it may be weird because of my age but i’m emotionally immature for my age and i can’t handle harder topics.

What is your opinion on the topic? Do you enjoy this kind of books? Leave your comment and if you participate on the weekly meme the link to your own post down below!

Imogen lives at the Playa Grande Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. She spends her days working out in the hotel gym and telling other guests how she was forced out of Stanford.

But Imogen isn’t really Imogen. She’s Jule. And she’s on the run from something. Or someone. Which means . . . where is the real Imogen?

Rewind: Jule and Imogen are the closest of friends. Obsessed with each other, even. Imogen is an orphan, an heiress; she and Jule spend a summer together in a house on Martha’s Vineyard, sharing secrets they’d never reveal to another soul.

But that was months ago. Where is Immie now? And why is Jule using her name?

We Dream of Space de [Erin Entrada Kelly]

A Newbery Honor Book • BookPage Best Books • Chicago Public Library Best Fiction • Goodreads Choice Awards Nominee • Horn Book Fanfare • New York Times Notable Children’s Book • School Library Journal Best Book • Today Show Pick • An ALA Notable Book“A 10 out of 10 . . . Anyone interested in science, sibling relationships, and friendships will enjoy reading We Dream of Space.”—Time for Kids

Newbery Medalist and New York Times–bestselling author Erin Entrada Kelly transports readers to 1986 and introduces them to the unforgettable Cash, Fitch, and Bird Nelson Thomas in this pitch-perfect middle grade novel about family, friendship, science, and exploration. This acclaimed Newbery Honor Book is a great choice for readers of Kate DiCamillo, Rita Williams-Garcia, and Rebecca Stead.

Cash, Fitch, and Bird Nelson Thomas are three siblings in seventh grade together in Park, Delaware. In 1986, as the country waits expectantly for the launch of the space shuttle Challenger, they each struggle with their own personal anxieties. Cash, who loves basketball but has a newly broken wrist, is in danger of failing seventh grade for the second time. Fitch spends every afternoon playing Major Havoc at the arcade on Main and wrestles with an explosive temper that he doesn’t understand. And Bird, his twelve-year-old twin, dreams of being NASA’s first female shuttle commander, but feels like she’s disappearing. 

The Nelson Thomas children exist in their own orbits, circling a tense and unpredictable household, with little in common except an enthusiastic science teacher named Ms. Salonga. As the launch of the Challenger approaches, Ms. Salonga gives her students a project—they are separated into spacecraft crews and must create and complete a mission. When the fated day finally arrives, it changes all of their lives and brings them together in unexpected ways.

Told in three alternating points of view, We Dream of Space is an unforgettable and thematically rich novel for middle grade readers.

We Dream of Space is illustrated throughout by the author.

—Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney, New York Times bestselling author of The Nest

“Nerdily (and winningly) in love with Shakespeare…Readable, smart.”
New York Times Book Review

On the day Oliver Marks is released from jail, the man who put him there is waiting at the door. Detective Colborne wants to know the truth, and after ten years, Oliver is finally ready to tell it.

A decade ago: Oliver is one of seven young Shakespearean actors at Dellecher Classical Conservatory, a place of keen ambition and fierce competition. In this secluded world of firelight and leather-bound books, Oliver and his friends play the same roles onstage and off: hero, villain, tyrant, temptress, ingénue, extras.

But in their fourth and final year, good-natured rivalries turn ugly, and on opening night real violence invades the students’ world of make-believe. In the morning, the fourth-years find themselves facing their very own tragedy, and their greatest acting challenge yet: convincing the police, each other, and themselves that they are innocent.

If We Were Villains was named one of Bustle’s Best Thriller Novels of the Year, and Mystery Scene says, “A well-written and gripping ode to the stage…A fascinating, unorthodox take on rivalry, friendship, and truth.”

You can find this book right now in the kindle store for only $2.99

If We Were Us de [K. L. Walther]

A high school romance that flips the switch on the will they or won’t they trope when two best friends are forced to confront truths about their friendship, identities, and relationships during their senior year at boarding school.

Everyone at the prestigious Bexley School believes that Sage Morgan and Charlie Carmichael are meant to be. Even though Charlie seems to have a new girlfriend every month, and Sage has never had a real relationship, their friends and family all know it’s just a matter of time until they realize that they are actually in love.

When Luke Morrissey shows up on the Bexley campus his presence immediately shakes things up. Charlie and Luke are drawn to each other the moment they meet, giving Sage the opportunity to spend time with Charlie’s twin brother, Nick.

But Charlie is afraid of what others will think if he accepts that he has much more than a friendship with Luke. And Sage fears that if she lets things with Nick get too serious too quickly, they won’t be able to last as a couple outside of high school and miss their chance at forever. The duo will need to rely on each other and their lifelong friendship to figure things out with the boys they love.

Perfect for those looking for:

  • Teen romance books
  • Two love stories in one
  • LGBTQ books
  • A fresh rom-com that twists the tropes
  • Coming-of-age stories
  • Books set at a boarding school

You can find this book right now in the kindle store for only $1.99

Let’s Talk Bookish | What Makes Me Pick A Book?

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books & Dani @ Literary Lion, where a topic is presented each week and we get to share our opinions on it and spread some love among others’s opinions too!

Todays’s topic is: WHAT MAKES YOU PICK UP A BOOK? (SUGGESTED BY RAFAELA @ THE PORTUGUESE BIBLIOPHILE)

 What makes you pick up certain books?

I don’t really know what makes me pick a up book, i mean, there are certain books i heard of from people and recommendations, but once in a while i just like to go to bookstores and let the books speak to me, like if they could tell me to pick them and take them home. i don’t always look what they are about of sometimes that’s the only thing i look… sometimes i just go to a specific topic and choose there randomly… i just need the book to talk to me.

Is a pretty cover enough?

Not really, i mostly pick what speaks to me and then, when it is on my TBR i pick the nice cover of a book i want to buy anyways. Like, i won’t just picka book because it looks nice, although i might pick it because of the title… that’s something i can go by.

Do you check for good reviews?

Yes, sometimes. I have a few reviewers i truly appreciate their opinions, and so when they recommend something i usually add it to my TBR. But that’s not always the case, like a good review might convience me, but ido have to check other reviews by the same reviewer, because maybe they liked books i didn’t. I don’t know it’s difficult… lately i follow the authors and check because i enjoy the authors themselves and if i like their minds i’ll enjoy what they have to say.

Is the synopsis important?

Not always. Like, there could be a great book with a bad synopsis or viceversa… i don’t always trust the synopsis… also, some of them spoil too much of the book.

Do you look for diversity or #ownvoices?

Yes, i do. Like, lately i’ve become more aware of the topic so yeah, i want to read more diverse books. I feel it’s important that everyone can feel represented and also to see and understand the way others live. Not to mention, many diverse authors are great, and everyone should read some of those books, it’s a shame to think before they wouldn’t be able to publish such great book because they were “different” in any way. I’m trying my best to read more diverse and i hope i manage, it’s too important to support all kinds of authors, as long as they are respectful people, if you know what i mean.

Do you look for any checkboxes?

I think i mostly read YA contemporaries, but i’m tring to start reading more of everything. I know i’m missing in a lot of great books because of this habit of reading only YA, so yeah.. i really want to open up to other books and enjoy more great writings, so please if you have a great book to recommend, feel free to do so! I’m always looking for recommendations and if you can tell me why you liked it even more so! I’ll read them and then we will be able to talk about it together!

Do you have autobuy authors?

I have way too many autobuy authors. I wouldn’t be able to remember them all this moment, but yeah, of course i have authors i’ve been buying their books since forever and i’m not planning on stopping any time soon. Autobuy authors are like best friends, you can always pick a book by them up and feel like they are with you, which is AMAZING and i’m totally in for it!

April’s Most Anticipated Releases!

As every month, i bring to you some of the most interesting books coming our way! Let’s see wat is coming out this April because there are some very interesting ones!

The Cost of Knowing

Release date: April 6th.

Dear Martin meets They Both Die at the End in this gripping, evocative novel about a Black teen who has the power to see into the future, whose life turns upside down when he foresees his younger brother’s imminent death, from the acclaimed author of SLAY.

Sixteen-year-old Alex Rufus is trying his best. He tries to be the best employee he can be at the local ice cream shop; the best boyfriend he can be to his amazing girlfriend, Talia; the best protector he can be over his little brother, Isaiah. But as much as Alex tries, he often comes up short.

It’s hard to for him to be present when every time he touches an object or person, Alex sees into its future. When he touches a scoop, he has a vision of him using it to scoop ice cream. When he touches his car, he sees it years from now, totaled and underwater. When he touches Talia, he sees them at the precipice of breaking up, and that terrifies him. Alex feels these visions are a curse, distracting him, making him anxious and unable to live an ordinary life.

And when Alex touches a photo that gives him a vision of his brother’s imminent death, everything changes.

With Alex now in a race against time, death, and circumstances, he and Isaiah must grapple with their past, their future, and what it means to be a young Black man in America in the present.

In Deeper Waters

Release date: April 20th.

A young prince must rely on a mysterious stranger to save him when he is kidnapped during his coming-of-age tour in this swoony adventure that is The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue meets Pirates of the Caribbean.

Prince Tal has long awaited his coming-of-age tour. After spending most of his life cloistered behind palace walls as he learns to keep his forbidden magic secret, he can finally see his family’s kingdom for the first time. His first taste of adventure comes just two days into the journey, when their crew discovers a mysterious prisoner on a burning derelict vessel.

Tasked with watching over the prisoner, Tal is surprised to feel an intense connection with the roguish Athlen. So when Athlen leaps overboard and disappears, Tal feels responsible and heartbroken, knowing Athlen could not have survived in the open ocean.

That is, until Tal runs into Athlen days later on dry land, very much alive, and as charming—and secretive—as ever. But before they can pursue anything further, Tal is kidnapped by pirates and held ransom in a plot to reveal his rumored powers and instigate a war. Tal must escape if he hopes to save his family and the kingdom. And Athlen might just be his only hope… 

The Forest of Stolen Girls

Release date: April 20th.

After her father vanishes while investigating the disappearance of 13 young women, a teen returns to her secretive hometown to pick up the trail in this second YA historical mystery from the author of The Silence of Bones.

Hwani’s family has never been the same since she and her younger sister went missing and were later found unconscious in the forest, near a gruesome crime scene. The only thing they remember: Their captor wore a painted-white mask.

To escape the haunting memories of this incident, the family flees their hometown. Years later, Detective Min—Hwani’s father—learns that thirteen girls have recently disappeared under similar circumstances, and so he returns to their hometown to investigate… only to vanish as well.

Determined to find her father and solve the case that tore their family apart, Hwani returns home to pick up the trail. As she digs into the secrets of the small village—and reconnects with her now estranged sister—Hwani comes to realize that the answer lies within her own buried memories of what happened in the forest all those years ago. 

She Drives Me Crazy

Release date: April 20th.

High school nemeses fall in love in this queer YA rom com perfect for fans of Becky Albertalli and Casey McQuisten.

After losing spectacularly to her ex-girlfriend in their first game since their break up, Scottie Zajac gets into a fender bender with the worst possible person: her nemesis, the incredibly beautiful and incredibly mean Irene Abraham. Things only get worse when their nosey, do-gooder moms get involved and the girls are forced to carpool together until Irene’s car gets out of the shop.

Their bumpy start only gets bumpier the more time they spend together. But when an opportunity presents itself for Scottie to get back at her toxic ex (and climb her school’s social ladder at the same time), she bribes Irene into playing along. Hijinks, heartbreak, and gay fake-dating scheme for the ages. From author Kelly Quindlen comes a new laugh-out-loud romp through the ups and downs of teen romance.

Kate in Waiting

Release date: April 20th.

Contrary to popular belief, best friends Kate Garfield and Anderson Walker are not codependent. Carpooling to and from theater rehearsals? Environmentally sound and efficient. Consulting each other on every single life decision? Basic good judgment. Pining for the same guys from afar? Shared crushes are more fun anyway.

But when Kate and Andy’s latest long-distance crush shows up at their school, everything goes off script. Matt Olsson is talented and sweet, and Kate likes him. She really likes him. The only problem? So does Anderson.

Turns out, communal crushes aren’t so fun when real feelings are involved. This one might even bring the curtains down on Kate and Anderson’s friendship.

Between Perfect and Real

Release date: April 27th.

A moving YA debut about a trans boy finding his voice—and himself

Dean Foster knows he’s a trans guy. He’s watched enough YouTube videos and done enough questioning to be sure. But everyone at his high school thinks he’s a lesbian—including his girlfriend Zoe, and his theater director, who just cast him as a “nontraditional” Romeo. He wonders if maybe it would be easier to wait until college to come out. But as he plays Romeo every day in rehearsals, Dean realizes he wants everyone to see him as he really is now––not just on the stage, but everywhere in his life. Dean knows what he needs to do. Can playing a role help Dean be his true self? 

And that’s all for this post. I hope you found some interesting books to addto your TBR!

Happy readings!
