Top Ten Books I've read so far in 2015





Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I want to share with you the top ten books I have read so far. This time I'm going to show 13 books because I don't know which one I should remove and I think all of them are important for me for a reason or other.

Here is my list (if you click in the title you go to goodreads and see more details about the book) :

23273007 

Seconds by Brian Lee O'Malley. I gave this one 4 stars because the book ended abruptly, but the rest was AMAZING! My husband is going to buy it and I can't wait to re-read it.


18521








A room of own's own by Virginia Woolf. This book was really cool because Virginia Woolf tells her views about women and literature in her own way and that makes it interesting and special. Nobody can narrate like that. It was superb! :)





9248688 


Silly novels by lady novelists by George Eliot. The moment I saw this book in the library I knew I was going to enjoy it. This book was funny, entertaining and make me thing about all kinds of writers. I highly recommend you and it's very short. You can read it very quickly.





2318271 


The last lecture by Randy Pausch. I really liked this book because it made me think about life and how we are and how we behave in life. This is unfortunately the real story of a man who was dying from cancer and his last lecture. I highly highly highly recommend it.





17571564 



Hyperbole and a half by Allie Brosch. This book was a very interesting read. It was funny, it was sad, made me think about depression and how I behave in certain situations. Overall it was a really fun read. There is a second book coming and I can't wait to have my hands on it.

17234594 




The library of the empty books by Jordi Sierra i Fabra. A book about books? yes, please. This book was fun to read because it has a mystery to solve: the letters in the books are fallen down and there is no way to put them back.




13011645 

The wonderful world of the letters by Jordi Sierra i Fabra. Another book by this author who makes me want to read and write. This book is about a boy who doesn't like reading, He hates it. A new perspective about something that it's very common, unfortunately.





16039732 

The day Frankenstein read the Quixote by Santiago Posteguillo. I really loved this book. It was about how Jane Austen got published, how Mary Shelley started writing Frankenstein and many other anecdotes about books and authors.  






22385474 

Confessions of an editor a bit liar by Esther Tusquets. This book is a memoir about how Esther Tusquets started her publishing house until the day she was retired. I really enjoyed this book especially because Esther tells the story in a very fun and interesting way.







2279473 

Lou! by Julien Neel. This is a series about a child who is becoming a girl and all the changes that happen when you leave your childhood and start becoming a teenager. I really enjoyed the 4 books I have read so far.







2900 

The story of Mr Sommer by Patrick Süskind. I thought I wasn't going to enjoy this book because I found it very cheap in a second hand bookstore, but not at all. I really enjoyed and laughed with the story about this child and some stories that happens to him. Very funny.







About my job as a painter by Antonio Lopez. I really enjoyed this book. It was about how Antonio Lopez started painting and his life as a painter and what he thinks about things such as galleries and museums. very enjoyable.

2796617 

The suicide shop by Jean Teulé. I really enjoyed this book because it was different. it talks about life and death and suicide from a new perspective. If you want to read an interesting read I highly suggest you to pick up this book.







Well, it was long list, but I'm done. Let me know in the comments your favorite books :)

Sundays in bed with... a lot of books! :D

Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I want to read a lot of books and I hope, at least, to be able to finish one. We'll see ;)

28187 

The lightning thief by Rick Riordan. This one is the one I hope to finish. I have just twenty page and I'm done with it. I like it, but for some reason I can't get into it. I just want to finish, I guess I'm very impatient :(







13697035 


A room of one's own by Virginia Woolf. I'm really really enjoying this book, it's really cool. It makes me think and how is told and how Virginia writes is amazing! :) I have only 100 pages to finish and I am able to finish this one today, but now I'm reading little by little and enjoying the book :)





316912 

The satanic mill by Otfried Preussler. This one is another book I want to finish today, but I don't know if I'm going to be able to do so or if I'm going to read it. The book is entertaining and intriguing and I like it, but at the same time it's creepy and I don't like that very much. So, I don't know if I'm going to be able to finish :(




12848580 


These foolish things by Deborah Moggach. This is another book I don't know if I'm going to be able to finish (at least I know for sure that I'm not going to be able to finish today) On the one hand it makes me laugh on the other hand is a bit depressing.





7945523 


Agent to the Stars by John Scalzi. This one is a book that I have heard nothing but good things about and I wanted to give it a go. I have only read one chapter. So far, I like it :)






This is me. Feel free to share your books :)

Hi everyone!!! :)

Today I want to finish two books. I hope to be able to do it, but I'm not sure.

The books are:

La noche en que Frankenstein leyó el QuijoteLa noche en que Frankstein leyó el Quijote (The night in which Frankestein read Don Quixote) by Santiago Posteguillo.This a great book and I enjoying it very much. It's a book about books, about who decided to put books in alphabetic order and about author such as Mary Shelley, Miguel de Cervantes or Walter Scott. And it's non-fiction.






17827829 

¡Ojo! con el pequeño Nicolás (Watch out! with the little Nicholas) by Goscinny and Sempé.This book is a compilation of short of stories about a child (who is who tells the stories) and his daily life: the things he does at school, at home, with his friends. It's really funny and I'm enjoying it very much.






Feel free to share the books your spending the day with and I hope you have a great day! :)
