My Sister’s Grave - Robert Dugoni

Image
Long time no see!I’ll try to be brief with this one, because it’s taking me very long to write reviews/summary and I’ve been reading more books than the ones I write about!The book name is My Sister’s Grave written by Robert Dugoni, and it is the first one of the series of Detective Tracy Crosswhite’s stories? cases?
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️I gave this book 3 stars on Goodreads, but is more like 3.5 stars… but I don’t feel like giving it 4 that means 3.5…. you know what I mean? Anyway, 3.5 Stars!

The book was very very intriguing, I read it so fast, like in 2 days because I couldn’t put it down, but in the end the story was not so good for me… it didn’t hold water (lol)*** SPOILERS AHEAD ***The beginning to this story is pretty straightforward we’re introduced to Tracy Crosswhite who is a detective in Seattle, and she’s told some human remains were found on a small town nearby. (Obviously, this is important…)Later we’re told that Tracy had a sister that desapeared 20 years ago and was n…

My Starbucks Card Collection

Image
I love coffee, is one of the things that makes me a happy person in the morning!!Most days I drink coffee from my office, or house… but on other days I like to go to Starbucks in the morning and sit there for a half an hour to read and enjoy my coffee (or wait for it to cool down)Anyway, something that I always check while I’m waiting in line to be served are the cards!! They’re almost always different and very pretty!(I acctually never use the card because I have the Starbucks App which has the same effect)
Here are some of the cards I’ve collected in the past mmm year or two...
Nice right?Talk to you later!

Beneath the Mountain - Luca D’Andrea

Image
Ok, so I read this book in Spanish and the name was La sustancia del mal, which sort of translates to The substance of evil (or something along those lines…) and I have to say, I didn't get it (the Spanish title…), it was mentioned once, and still I didn't get it. At least the English title "Beneath the Mountain" is more identifiable in the story than the Spanish one but well, in the end it doesn’t matter very much.Starting off with this, I have to say that even though it was a very thrilling story in the end I didn’t like it very much… But, don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it was a bad book! It was one of those stories that capture the reader and compels to continue reading until you actually know exactly what’s going on, which I believe is something good in a book! haha but the end (ugh… you’ll find out).
On with it !!**** SPOILERS AHEAD****The first (mmmmh) 3 or 4 pages are non-sence… you sort of understand them AFTER you finish the book (or at least have read tw…

Something you want to change about yourself..

Blog Prompt No. 6Name something you want to change about yourself?Personally I think there’s only 1 thing I’d like to change about myself, nothing more.I want to stop being a procrastinator… is HORRIBLE, it affects my life in so many aspects and levels… of course I get things done, but it cost me effort because most time I don’t want to or get distracted easily.Is one of the reasons its so hard to mantain this blog, because I’m not consistent and that’s because I procrastinate… I say I’ll do something and then do something else less important...I want to read…. I turn on the TV
I want to write… I grab a book
I want to prepare food… I go to the bed and sleep...Is not nice… haha that’s why I think that’s what I want to change! Is the personal trait that causes most problems haha =)Either way, I’m working on it…

Tokyo Ghoul Manga Volumes 1 to 7 - Ishida Sui

Image
It has been a while since I found a manga that captured my attention, even though I actually am reading Shingeki no Kyojin (which is very very popular), Tokyo Ghoul has the kind of story that always capture my attention… or, most of the times at least!No, it is not about the violence or the blood (there’s plenty of that, yeah!) but is more the humanity of the characters in a world where humanity is rare. A seemingly weak and kind lead character with lots of unknown potential, AND cutely drawn! I love cute drawings!My Number 1 filter for choosing a manga is drawings! If I don’t like the drawings, I won’t like the story! That almost always happens… but anyway, back to Tokyo Ghoul, it had nice drawings and a storyline that seemed appealing to me so I started with it.(I have to admit, that I watched the Anime series first, so I kind of knew the story already, but the anime is soo good !! that I decided to now read the manga)In this post, I decided to write about the first 7 volumes of Tok…

Frist, this week covers from today to 7 days back… meaning from July 12 to July 18, 2017.Well actually this week was a good week, first, it was my niece’s 6th birthday! and I asked some days off from work and spent the whole day with her and she loved it! =)We went to a place called Kidzania, which is a small city for kids where they can play to be adults and work and earn money… (haha if they knew) But it was actually a good excercize for my niece because she had to follow orders either way but have fun at the same time! So we enjoyed it very much!

That week I also rested a LOT, there was one day where I almost slept the whole day and only woke up to eat haha it was awesome! 😌Later I visited the new house of a recently married friend and watched some concerts and movies and it was great! I cooked some, we talked a lot and enjoyed time together!Next day, it was one of my…
