SO on this fine month I’ve decided to make a list of all the books I need to read before the year is over and preferablyn dufring October because I saw the OcTBR thing on twitter and thought it was fun

To make it a bit challenging (and not add the 100+ books I actually have on my TBR I’ve decided to make a Bingo board!

Feel free to use it if you are also trying to catch up to your TBRs

Sequel September

Aliterations are a thing now, apparently (?)

This month has a lot of sequels coming out and I have been waiting for a while.Resultado de imagen para sequel gif

September will be dedicated to all those fantastic books coming out after other fantastic books and going back to worlds that we know with stories we don’t!


First of all:: I recieved an ARC and I’m already half way through but it’s a sequel and I’ll finish it in September so it totally counts…

Last month I decided to reread a couple of books because of their sequels coming out (an excelent idea since I’m even more hyped for these titles now::

August’s (Re)Reading Plans

((Fun fact: the prefix “re” in Argentina means “very” so technically rereading a book means reading it very hard))

Do you all know how many sequels are coming on the second half of 2019?? A lot

I’ve decided to dedicate this month to (mostly) re reading books I enjoyed and whose stories I’m getting back into soon so I have all the characters fresh in my mind. Also because the other day I got an irrational urge to reread the entire Green Creek Series and I needed a good excuse to do it.

Books inspired by places I visited

Yes, I know I sort-of did something similar with the TopTenTuesday on books of places I’m gonna visit BUT this time I’ve actually gone to these places.

When I was walking all around the British Isles I was half admiring the scenery and half thinking of all the stories that could take place in the places I was staying at. For example, Edinburgh was so obviously adapted into Harry Potter that I could imagine kids with robes and wands running around. The countryside in Ireland is so green and full of nature that I could clearly see where all the stories about fairies came from, not to mention the actual history of the places. So while I was there I started asking for recs but mostly I searched on goodreads and other blogs for stories taking place on the UK and Ireland.

Here are the books I want to read  to revisit all those places! Continue reading “Books inspired by places I visited”

Let’s do it!

As you may or may not know. this year I want to finally read all the books I already own (apart from those that I have preordered) and for this reason I decided to join a challenge!

Beat the Backlist 2019

Any genre, any format, any length. 

Any book published in 2018 or earlier is fair game.

Re-reads count. And you don’t have to own the book!

It’s exactly what I wanted to do! and (for me) it’s always easier to do things when you have a community to share with. They have a bingo card to check special kinds of books::

I’ve already read a few books this year and one of them happens to have been a christmas present so I’m ticking it off!

They also have a mini-challenge where you can join a Hogwarts house and win points to compete against other houses! I love a good rivalry
