FR·A Destiny of Dragons

Friday reads was invented by The Candid cover

It’s a book meme that mixes two already existing:Friday Reads

  • Book Beginnings is a book meme hosted by Rose City Reader where participants share the first sentence (or so) of the book, along with initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.
  • The Friday 56 is hosted by Freda’s Voice, and the rules are quite simple: Grab a book, any book, and turn to page 56 or 56% in your e-reader. Find any non-spoilery sentence(s) and post.

Book Beginnings

I was seventeen when I brought a bird back to life.

And we’re starting with a reminder of just how powerful our main is. I love when we have lovable characters that can do the most unnatural stuff. It give the story such a delightful contrast of light and dark.

The Friday 56

After the whole… debacle that was our fucked-up courtship, my mother and father had invited Ryan out to lunch, telling me in no uncertain terms that I was not allowed to join them.

And that’s how you end up with a dead boyfriend letting your really protective parents go on a secret lunch with him…

WWW Wednesday

I’m not dead! (Yay) I’m finally mostly settled in Edinburgh so the first thing I needed to do was get back into a posting schedule. I promise notthing but I will try and post a few times each week. For now I’m sticking to memes and reviews though.

This meme was formerly hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm and revived on Taking on a World of Words.

It’s basically to check in, see what I’m reading at real-time.


The Three Ws are:

  • What are you currently reading?

  • What did you recently finish reading?

  • What do you think you’ll read next?

A Gathering of Shadows by VE Schwab

She bent most of the rules. She broke the rest.

Title: A Gathering of Shadows

Series: Shades of Magic #2

Author: V.E. Schwab

Publisher: Destino

Format: Spanish Paperback

Length: 492 pages

Rating: 4/5 ★★★★☆


36205455. sx318 It has been four months since a mysterious obsidian stone fell into Kell’s possession. Four months since his path crossed with Delilah Bard. Four months since Prince Rhy was wounded, and since the nefarious Dane twins of White London fell, and four months since the stone was cast with Holland’s dying body through the rift–back into Black London.

Now, restless after having given up his smuggling habit, Kell is visited by dreams of ominous magical events, waking only to think of Lila, who disappeared from the docks as she always meant to do. As Red London finalizes preparations for the Element Games–an extravagant international competition of magic meant to entertain and keep healthy the ties between neighboring countries–a certain pirate ship draws closer, carrying old friends back into port.

And while Red London is caught up in the pageantry and thrills of the Games, another London is coming back to life. After all, a shadow that was gone in the night will reappear in the morning. But the balance of magic is ever perilous, and for one city to flourish, another London must fall.

Review for the first book A Darker Shade of Magic

Where I’ve been and where I’ll be

…it’s been a while

I took a bit of a break from blogging but now I’m back, if with a bit less frequency than before, because…

This Sunday I’ll be boarding a plane to London, then a train to Edinburgh, where I’ll be staying for the forseeable future!

I’ve been planning this move for a whole year and I can’t believe it’s actually happening.

Last year I went with my sister on a trip of the isles and fell in love with Scotland, when I came back to Argentina it was with the conviction that I’d move permanently there on 2020. I worked and saved during the entire year and now here I am.Resultado de imagen de edinburgh gif

I’ve been reading a lot but most of the books were about travel and/or moving abroad. I may make a wrap up of all the books I used in the future (if you’d all be interested in that)

The point is that my life is changing BIG TIME. I’ll be living an ocean away from my family and completely on my own for the first time and it will be an experience.

I promise to try and update as often as possible but if I dissapear for two or three weeks at a time, don’t worry I’m probably just trying to figure out how to go grocery shopping or something like that…

First Top Ten Tuesday of the decade! We’re still looking back to 2019 but only to see how it can help us in this new year..

As I said on my 2020 Bookish Resolutions, this year I’m going to try and tackle by TBR

Basically, the idea is to read books that were published in previous years and log them to your BtB list so you can earn point, cross off a bingo squar or whatever tracking method you prefer
