#NotAll Books tag

I saw this tag on my feed thanks to Bookallure and #NotAll seemed like a fun thing to do. Let’s discern those books that did something right from the rest, I guess

Interview with Zoraida Córdova

She is also an amazing person and is soon releasing the second book on the Brooklyn Brujas trilogy called Bruja Born, I had the privilege of working with her on the promotion of the book and you can read a full review of it here.
She was kind enough to hangout with bloggers from all over the world so that we could talk freely about the books and ask her all kinds of questions. She encouraged us to talk about our own projects and gave a few tips. On the side she taught us how to make glitter-jars so that was pretty cool.

I did a quick interview with her asking questions about both the book and herself. This is the first time I’ve worked with an author so directly and I must say that the experience is something else.
I’m super grateful to Zoraida and all her publishing team for working with the blogging community and taking their time to answer all our (sometimes off topic) questions.
Without further ado, let’s get to the actual interview::

Quotes and ranting to: Simon vs the Homo Sapiens agenda by Becky Albertalli

In honor of a fantastic movie I STILL can’t watch in theatres (though there are a lot of countries where the movie won’t get a single showing and I hope things get better for you all out there) I decided to do a little something to spread my love for Love, Simon. What better way than buying another copy of the book, this time with the first emails Jaques and Blue exchanged, and writing a post raving about it?

Basically I take all of the parts I highlighted and group them according to how they make you feel, then talk a bit about each. For example:

For the next few days at school after that, it felt like I was a character in a movie. I could almost imagine a close-up of my face, projected wide-screen. It’s strange, because in reality, I’m not the leading guy. Maybe I’m the best friend.

I HAVE SOME NEWS FOR YOU SIMON


Disclaimer: Be aware that this post contains spoilers for the book (and probably the movie too I WOULDN’T KNOW)

TTT·Books for not-Spring

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.

Today’s Topic:

Books On My Spring Fall TBR

These are some books I want to read that for one reason or another remind me of fall. It can be the cover or the story or an arbitrary thing that will make you question my life choices… Let’s do it!

Let’s talk about love by Claire Kann

Title: Let’s talk about love

Author: Claire Kann

Publisher:  Swoon Reads

Format: Kindle

Rating: 4/5 ★★★★☆

Summary:

31625039Alice had her whole summer planned. Nonstop all-you-can-eat buffets while marathoning her favorite TV shows (best friends totally included) with the smallest dash of adulting—working at the library to pay her share of the rent. The only thing missing from her perfect plan? Her girlfriend (who ended things when Alice confessed she’s asexual). Alice is done with dating—no thank you, do not pass go, stick a fork in her, done.

But then Alice meets Takumi and she can’t stop thinking about him or the rom com-grade romance feels she did not ask for (uncertainty, butterflies, and swoons, oh my!).

When her blissful summer takes an unexpected turn and Takumi becomes her knight with a shiny library-employee badge (close enough), Alice has to decide if she’s willing to risk their friendship for a love that might not be reciprocated—or understood.

Claire Kann’s debut novel Let’s Talk About Love, chosen by readers like you for Macmillan’s young adult imprint Swoon Reads, gracefully explores the struggle with emerging adulthood and the complicated line between friendship and what it might mean to be something more.

Totally should’ve BookTag

This is a tag from LostInPages  and it’s been sitting in my drafts since forever so this week I decided to finish it and share it with all of you.

It’s a tag about book things that totally should’ve happened

I love books and I trust authors (normally) to do right by them but let’s be real, there are some things that we all would love to change if we could there’s a reason fanfiction is a thing

Readers are notorious for their varying opinions, especially when it comes to our favorite books. We had some fun answering these “totally should’ve” questions and giving our opinions on a few book-related topics!
