Resolution of 2018: Finishing book series!

On these 365 days I am planning to catch up on some unfinished business: THE BOOK SERIES! Series are such a cross for me: I started them and I loved them but then I want to go for something different and completely forget about them. When I finally decided to go back to a world setting I suddenly forget about EVERYTHING: the characters, the world and the entire plot of the previously book.

Why books don’t have a previously as tvshows do? How can my human brain remember everything that happen YEARS AGO. HOW?

#WrapUp: my September Wrap Up!

19621606_1862250074098752_465844675_nI don’t know what happened to this year but the summer went gone so suddendly. Don’t make me wrong I am good with it: there is so point of being summer if I have to work in the office and I was pretty tired of 35+ degrees on my skin. Especially because I tend to not feel very well on the warm wheather.
So I finally went back on light up candles. I missed those smells so much.

Getting up to my wrap up of this month. I don’t think it wasn’t bad couting that I went back to 8hours+ of work and I had the time to reading only on my trip to work. So here we are..

toptentuesday So it seems like I went back with my Top Ten Tuesday posts. Lets see how much I can be consistent with them or blogging in general.. I accept bets.
So this tuesday the theme is “Ten Books That Feature Characters ________” and I couldn’t not exploit the situation in order to talking about MENTAL HEALTH. So here you are going to have a post with my favorite book about mental health and if you still haven’t read any them this is your chance to pick it up one and START.

WRITTEN BY: Karen McManus
PUBLISHED BY: Delacorte Press
PAGES: 361

(PLOT BY GR) Pay close attention and you might solve this. On Monday afternoon, five students at Bayview High walk into detention.
Bronwyn, the brain, is Yale-bound and never breaks a rule.
Addy, the beauty, is the picture-perfect homecoming princess.
Nate, the criminal, is already on probation for dealing.
Cooper, the athlete, is the all-star baseball pitcher.
And Simon, the outcast, is the creator of Bayview High’s notorious gossip app.
Only, Simon never makes it out of that classroom. Before the end of detention Simon’s dead. And according to investigators, his death wasn’t an accident. On Monday, he died. But on Tuesday, he’d planned to post juicy reveals about all four of his high-profile classmates, which makes all four of them suspects in his murder. Or are they the perfect patsies for a killer who’s still on the loose? Everyone has secrets, right? What really matters is how far you would go to protect them.

My August wrap up!

19621606_1862250074098752_465844675_nThis last month has been pretty incredible. I finally had two weeks off work and I had travel just a little bit: I went back to England — Liverpool, Manchester and Chester — I visited a friend who is doing an internship in Liverpool so we caught up, ate a bunch of food, laughed and traveled. I also went to visit one of my best friend to Naples, so I had a bit of sun on my skin.
When I am on a holiday I tend to not read that much this is because my holidays are always catching up or visiting some friends and it is a bit rude to read in front of someone, especially if you paied  quite a sum for being there with them. So I read during my trip — flights and trains — and the few days that I have been at home. I had to say I am quiet proud of my wrap up of the month — even if I haven’t the time to write any reviews for the books that I read but they were so so GOOD!
