According to my family’s tradition, we put up all the Christmas decorations on December 8 (a special day on the Catholic calendar), and so today I’m doing the Festive Christmas Book Tag.
I saw this at Browsing for Books’ Bookmas and the guest blog was For the Love of Books. The tag was created by the Booktuber GirlReading and you can check out the original video here.
Sidenote: As a Spanish/Argentine family we put up the christmas tree but also make a really big production for the nativity. (If any of you have been to Spain for the winter holidays then you know what I’m talking about). It’s the whole city of Bethlehem, the desert with the Three Wise Men and as many people and animal as we can cram into whatever surface we’re using that year. My dogs are unwilling participants in all of this and always get santa hats and reindeer antlers put on them (
I’ll see if I post some pictures of this year’s) It’s an activity that takes up the better part of a day. Continue reading “Festive Christmas Book Tag”

You know how, in 2018 I tried to read more classics and failed in an spectacular manner? Well, I’m giving it another chance next year but this time I’m enlisting help!
Mel to the Any and Book Geeks Uncompromised are hosting six classic readalongs along 2019 on what they’ve called #CatchUpOnClassics
They’ve already set up all the titles and dates, I’ll be sharing the books but you can check out all the details on the links!
I really like that they not only put on the classics but also one bonus book and the movie adaptations in case you aren’t feeling it

We are officially in December so I’m legally obligated to post something about the holidays
Happy Hanukkah to all of you who celebrate!
Today I’m doing a new tag! It’s based on the Coffee tag but this one is holiday themed so it’s different. It was made by Ariel @WavesOfPages as part of Browsing For Books’ Bookmas so be sure top check out both blogs!
Now for the drinks..

and here’s the loot
If there’s one thing you all should know about my grandparents is that they love books almost as much as me and my grandfather is a huge Tolkien fan.
The other day I went over and my grandma told me to pick whatever I liked since they’ve already read everything they have and she wanted the books to go to someone who really appreciates them… that’s how I went home with 22 books in my backpack (would not recommend)

I saw this meme back at and it goes like this:
What Are You Reading Wednesday was created by Rhianna, Marissa, and Kendall. The idea is to create a space for book lovers to share, discuss, and recommend the books they are currently reading and loving. All you have to do is answer the questions about your current read and then head over to one of the host’s sites to link up your post! Have fun and don’t forget to check out everyone’s posts as well!

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

..and you don’t know where to start? Today’s your lucky day! Because I just finished a great book inspired by chinese folklore and it inspired me to share some diverse fantasy books I’ve read (or I’ve been meaning to get to) this year
I know most fantasies are centered around european folklore, and there’s nothing really wrong with that (I do love Tolkien) but there’s also so many different cultures in the world with their own fairy tales and myths and all the folklore that most of us know nothing about! So this post is dedicated to those kinds of fantasies
All the covers have a link to the goodreads page so that you can add the book to your TBR with no trouble!
