"Pertenecían al grupo de personas que necesitan el poder de irse". ¡Hola, lectores!
Hace unos días termine de leer este libro y bueno, es un poco triste porque su libro anterior que leí de esta autora "Las noches habitadas" me gusto muchísimo; me encanto, pero en esta ocasión no me ha encantado, ni gustado si quiera. Como base puedo decir que es una buena historia pero no veo nada más, pasamos de historia en historia como en las noches habitadas pero no me atrapo del todo, se clava mucho en detallar cosas que al final no tenían sentido o tanto peso en la historia y el final es un honestamente "meh"... Tiene frases buenas, porque bueno, es Alma Delia, siempre tiene frases buenas con ese sarcasmo picosito que la distingue. La trama es sobre tres niños Óscar, María y Román quienes se conocen a los 10 años es un internado, cada uno con su familia disfuncional y sus pedos mentales. Una mamá prostituta pero bien chambeadora, otro con padres muertos y abandonado a su suerte y la otra, con una familia super numerosa y en extrema pobreza. A Óscar le encanta leer, a Maria actuar y cantar a Óscar, diseñar. Descubren los besos, su primera chaqueta... Y al final terminan separándose y haciendo sus vidas, en la infancia cada uno fue un barco que los salvo de ahogarse, siempre juntos y cómplices pero, bueno, siempre se tiene que crecer y la vida no siempre como uno quiere o lo que específicamente uno espera. Sin embargo el lograr lo que queremos está más allá del no puedo.
En fin, a mí no me ha gustado de nada pero eso no lo convierte en un mal libro, ustedes, ¿ya lo leyeron? .................................................................................................................. ☕ Si toman la foto dar créditos, por favor 💟
"Soul mate is a stupid term. Six years ago, before Names began invading the human body with no discernible explanation, soul mate had implications of sap. People believed or didn't believe, and it more or less felt like a concept made up for rom-coms and Hallmark holidays. How could there possibly be only one person on this bloated planet whose destiny it was to be with another person." - Julie Halpern, Meant to Be.
It’s Underrated Author for GeekyGlowReadsContemporary, and it should come as no surprise that I’m choosing the AMAZING Julie Halpern (@julie.halpern) I’m such a Fangirl of her books, they are full of wonderful, honest, relatable, & well thought out characters who will make you feel all the feels. And I dare you not to laugh, because her books are witty and hilarious! Meant to Be is her newest release and it’s all about what would happen if your soulmate or MTB ‘meant to be’s’ name suddenly appeared tattooed on your skin when you turn 18....it’s a hilarious book about the battle between free will and fate and I absolutely loved it!!!

Despite the pulp cover, Focus (1945) was Arthur Miller's first novel and one of the first books to directly confront American anti-Semitism. It remains as chilling and incisive today as it was at the time of its controversial debut.
📌 Did you read any Indiana Jones-style novels? A team goes into a forest or a mountain or somewhere and have to face ridiculous things in the pursuit of treasure?
The Anomaly #bookreview : I finally, FINALLY read @bookofthemonth pick in the same month as it arrived! 😱 After Bear Town, this Indiana-Jones-meets-X-files novel was just what I need! It’s so real that you end up believing in the fantastical elements!! I really like the setting of the novel which took about 150 pages. The narrator was at the ideal distance from the reader and the other characters were well drawn out. There’s no pining or thinking back. No melodrama! There’s only straightforward narration. I approve. ❤️ Nolan and his YouTube film production team go to the Grand Canyon in search of an anomaly. Then shit follows! We all know it. People die. Weird monsters are unleashed. BUT, the way the story is built up makes this book worth it. ❤️ Ideal for people who love a fast, adventurous read!

I know this book again...
But I finally read it and I really like it. Lgbt+ and poc representation in this book is just beautiful and I really think it would do well sa a movie.
What's your favourite book to movie adaptation?
Áno, zasa táto kniha. Ale konečne som ju prečítala a bola ozaj super. Oceňujem najmä reprezentáciu lgbt+ a poc a myslím si, že by z tejto knihy bol naozaj skvelý film.
Máte nejakú obľúbenú filmovú adaptáciu knihu?
#lyrareads2018 book of the week is @officialdavidhallberg ‘s “A Body of Work”. After listening to him talking about his journey and injuries in person, time to dive into his book. This is the closest I can get #xiaoqi to sit next to a 📖
So I started this popular and seemingly impossible challenge to read a book a week. Success not guaranteed but will post as I read through the books I hoarded over the years, with or without alcohol. #bookhoarder

Happy Monday Folks! Today's post is all about A Court of Frost and Starlight!
Differently from the most of people here on the bookstagram I really liked it.
Obviously it's not a masterpiece but I think that it really work as a short novella and it's exactly what Queen Maas promised to us.
I found the story really sweet and with some incredibly funny moments ( thanks to Cassian), alternating with more serious moments that are an introduction for the next book in the series.
Also I like the ending, Nesta deserves a "punishment", she's not the only one struggling through memories and she's not the only one that wants to heal. She must stop being a b*tch and throwing hate toward the inner circle and her sisters, she owes them a lot.
Obviously Feysand is life, as always, and I loved the character development of Feyre at the end of the story. ✨4/5✨. Can't wait to read more of Sarah J. Maas books now😍😍!! QOTD: do you know any book/books similar to the ACOTAR series?

“Checking the clock I know he will be home any minute, so I arrange myself at the table, trying to look seductive. After five minutes, I try his cell. After fifteen, I call his office. After a half hour, I leave a message for Foster....I will not assume the worst, I will not assume the worst. This is the mantra I keep repeating.” Trilina Pucci | Come Back To Me
Happy Monday comrades 🙌🏻 who loves a good bookish feature?! I know I do! The babes over @inkstagramtours know how to peer pressure these emotionally crippling books that I can’t help to dive into - jeez & crackers. Come Back to Me by @trilinapucci was absolutely amazing read!
Come Back to Me was definitely crippling, the suspenseful set up that Pucci conveys as the character dynamics evolve. By the end I was left thinking I had no clue who to trust, who to love and who to hate. It was heart pounding! Loved!
And because I ramble too damn much the synopsis is down below in the comments & I have updated the link in my bio that will lead you straight to my reviews for Come Back to Me & Forever with Me! Guys - you want to read them they are really good! Happy reading comrades!
