Top 10 Books From My Childhood (Or teen years) That I Would Love To Revisit

Hey guys!!! :)


I have totally abandoned this blog and that is a pity. I want to write it again and have nice chats with you about books :)

                                           hosted by : The Broke and the Bookish




Today I'm going to tell you about the books from my childhood I would love to revisit. I have only found 9, but I'm sure I have more.

Here they are

Pelines by Gloria Fuertes. This book is one of my favourite books when I was a pre-teen. Every time I felt sad or unhappy, I read it and I felt better :) It's about this boy who is raised by his aunts and honestly, I don't remember more. The only thing I remember is that the whole book is told in verse. Cool! :)


An adventure in Seville by Ferrandiz. This is a book that I loooooved when I was a child. Sometimes I had arguments with my sister because my sister and I wanted to read it at the same time. No wonders why, there's fairies, magic and dancing. What else a child can ask? The story is about a little woman who is given magic castañuelas. If she plays them, everybody starts dancing although they don't want to. At the beginning, if I remember correctly, she uses in a wrong way, but in the end she uses so the good can win the evil.


Querida Susi, querido Paul


Dear Susi, Dear Paul by Christine Nöstlinger. I really love this book. I have read it thousands of times. It's about a girl and a boy. The boy has to go to live another place and he can't see the girl any more so they write letters to each other. They are really cute and they have a strong relationship. Even though they are not living in the same place, they write each other.

Trip to the library :)

Hi everyone!!! :)

I hope you're having a great day :) Today I went to the library because I wanted to return some books and I  found books which I think I'm going to love.









The Icarus Deception by Seth Godin. I don't have a clue what this book is about, but I had a look and it sounded interesting, like your way of working should be based on creativity (I believe)

So many book by Gabriel Zaid. This one is a book which I had started long time ago. I had to leave it unfinished because I had to return it, but what I remember was laughing very much although the topic, that there are too many books out there, was a bit scary.

He's just not that into you by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo. I borrowed this book because I was curious. I wanted to know what this book was really about. I knew the film based on this book, but this book was placed in psychology in my library, not in fiction. When I took a look, when I saw that the authors what they do is answering questions about men, I didn't know if I was going to like it, but I borrowed because I thought the book could help me with ideas for short stories, but once I arrived home and I started reading it, I saw that the book could help me personally, we'll see :)

Funny sentences said by children. In Spain there is a program called El hormiguero (Ant's nest) In the program they asked parents if they wanted to send sentences said by their children which were funny. Everybody enjoyed sending and hearing funny sentences said by children, I remember hearing some of them and laugh out loud, so they decided to compile in a book. The book was so famous that they decided to do more. I have already read another book and I laughed very much. Very funny! :)

Who remembers David Foenkinos? by David Foenkinos. I have already started this one and it's quite unusual. In the book he talks about waht happened to him after his success with one book and then with the next five books it was like nobody knew him. So far it's interesting and different.

This is me, but did you find something good in the library lately?

Challenge completed!!! :)

Hey guys!!! :)

Yesterday I told you that I wanted to challenge myself. I wanted to read this book in just one day, in fact just one evening.








 And I finished at 11:55 a.m, but I did it. I'm glad that I completed my challenge and also I read such an entertainment book. I highly recommend it if you want to improve your French and/or you want to read something quirky and interesting.

So, what about you? have you finished a great book and complete a challenge? Let me know in the comments.

See ya :)
