TTT· You probably haven’t heard of it

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.

Books I LOVED with Fewer than 2,000 1,000 Ratings on Goodreads

I’ve decided to take this challenge one step further and lower the number of ratings since all these books were great and deserve more love! Continue reading “TTT· You probably haven’t heard of it”

Matching Kindle highlights to Books

It’s no secret that most of the reading I do is on my kindle, I find it super practical and the easiest way to find books that aren’t available in my country. I also have the habit of marking every passage that catches my eye, maybe it’s a key plot point or witty dialogue or just a funny turn of phrase.

When you combine those two you end up with Kindle Highlights that make almost no sense and you random bits od sentences with no context whatsoever.

That’s why I invented this little game: I’ll copy 10 of my most obscure highlights and try to guess which book they belong to, feel free to play along with me and tell me how many you got right!

The Good Immigrant

(Not gonna lie, that’d be a kick ass title for a book) Alas, this is a rare instance of a non-book-related post

The other day on twitter I saw debate over wich kind of immigrant people from the US are “fine” “taking in” (meaning they’d most likely not tear-gas their families of kidnap their children) And me, having been a child immigrant myself, I decided to write a thing on here, just to get it off of my chest.

This was also motivated by my own country’s issues with immigration, particularly with Venezuelan refugees.

WARNING: This ended up longer than I expected–

Life Update: A book a month and travel plans

So… the title pretty much says it? No? Well,

I’ll be going into a sort-of-but-not-really-a-book buying ban because…

I’m going to Europe!*

*eventually

More exactly I’ll be traveling to England, Scotland, Ireland and Spain. It’s a trip that I’ve been meaning to take since forever and I finally have enough money and time. The thing is that I don’t have much money so to save as much as I can I decided to limit all my expenses, this, sadly, includes books. For the forseeable future I’ll buy only one book each month (from the 2019 new releases) and the rest of books I’ll read will be from those I already own (working to Beat The Backlist)

The plan is to visit London, Edinburgh, Dublin, and Galway in two weeks (sleep is for the weak) and then spend a full week in Spain with all my old friends. I’ll be traveling with my little sister and the plan is to sleep in hostels and walk all day , seeing as much as possible. I also have a special itinerary of all the literary places I want to see while we’re there and I’ll try to upload photos on here.

There’s a chance we’ll be traveling as soon as next month so if I suddenly drop out the face of the Earth… well, you know where to find me.

Also, if you have any suggestions of places we should visit while on those cities they are more than welcome!
