New laptop & 2015’s reading goals.

My 8-years-old laptop was a pain in the ass lately, for that reason I got a new one for Christmas 😀 (well, actually the 6th of January), this means that now I will be able to write more and use more this blog. That laptop has been a faithful friend all these years but at the end it was quite slow, loud, and unreliable.

I am sorry that this Christmas I have not updated the blog but I have not really read a lot and I have not gotten many new books D: My boyfriend gave me as a gift the book that the TV series “Orange is the new black” is based on.

OITNB

yep, that’s Amsterdam’s flag.

Sorry, it is in Spanish (I do not normally read in Spanish though) but the title in English is Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison a memoir by Piper Kerman. She tells her story of drug trafficking and the year that she spent in a women’s prison. I have had not time to start reading it but I really enjoy the TV series so I think that I will probably enjoy it (I do not know how but I did not know anything about the book [!!!]).

Right now I am currently finishing How to kill a Mockingbird and I have fixed a reading goal for this 2015, I will try to read 50 books this year, I think that is totally plausible and if I overtake it I can always extend it. If you want to see my reading progress you can add my to Goodreads! I will try to include some books of the Rory Gilmore’s reading list but I will talk about that in another entry.

Moreover I have added some new books to my Kindle with the hope of being able of reading them soon. I have added some YA novels (like Fangirl, Landline and, Attachments) and some classics like Anne of Green GablesLes Miserables, and Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

I have probably already told you about that but I finished The Diviners by Libba Bray and I totally love it BUT I thought that the next book was already out and it is not, I hate thaaaat now I have to wait until is published and ashsdgjgh I want to read it asap. From what I know it will be called The Lair of Dreams and I have to confess that I do not really like the cover of the sequel. Come on, I love the style of The Diviners’ cover and the cover of the sequel is so different…

I am not saying that it is ugly or anything, it is just that, for me, it clashes with the previous one. Anyway, I am sure that I will love the novel so no problem.

Well sorry about all the rambling, I hope that you have enjoyed this new entry 😀 I will probably write a new one soon about fanfiction or about Rory Gilmore’s reading list. See you soon!

Book haul? and this month I am reading…

I love binge-reading, it is probably one of my favourite activities but right now I am reading mostly in the train to school/home because I am studying and I do not have that much time for reading 😦

Right now though I am particularly interested on reading books by female writers, it is not because anything in particular but I feel like it. First of all I have finished The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, nook that I had on my to-read list for a long time and I have to say that I love it, and I have also finished Jane Eyre (yep I know, I should have read these books a long time ago). I feel in love with a quotation of  Jane Eyre a long time ago and finally I have its context.

Yesterday in my way to class I started reading The Diviners by Libba Bray, it is not a classic like the previous books that I have been reading lately but since A Great and Terrible Beauty I am in love with her work and, although it is difficult, I think that I am going to like The Diviners as mush as The Gemma Doyle Trilogy.

Another thing that I love is The Book Depository, books in English for a reasonable price with free shipping? I love it. I have just received an order from TBD and I am really happy, it arrived quite fast and as always it came with a couple of cute bookmarks.

As you can see I have bought The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer (I am a Twin Peaks freak I must admit) and To Kill a Mockinbird (Yep, another classic that I should have read a loooong time ago. I promise that I will make a new post just about The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer, I hope that I can read it soon, (I also want the book about Agent Cooper but it was more expensive :__ )

I hope that I can write again soon 🙂
