September & October 2018 Wrap Up


Life Update

  • So, I MOVED TO SPAIN in September! I will be living here for a year while I get my Master’s Degree. That’s the reason I haven’t been posting for the last month, I got here and the jet lag was awful, so I didn’t have much energy and I had a lot of paperwork and appointments to get done, so I needed some time to adapt and get used to my new life without worrying about blogging.
  • I really like the city where I’m living, it’s pretty small, but I have met amazing people, and I started classes the first week of October and so far so good. Also, I went to Portugal and it’s so beautiful, I loved that trip so much!
  •  My birthday was October 28th and I had the best time! My friends and I went out to drink and dance and it was so fun. It was a bit hard to be away from my family, but I was surrounded by amazing people that made it a really special day.

What I Read in September


Josh and Hazel’s Guide to Not Dating by Christina Lauren (3,6 stars): This was gonna be a 5 stars read, but then the last 50 pages happened and I was so dissapointed. For the most part, this was funny, sweet, entertatining, steamy, and the main couple was amazing, but the authors throw a bunch of elements at the end that were not necessary and they had no time to tie all the strings together and it’s kind of a rush and messy ending.

Falling for Her Fiancé by Cindi Madsen (3 stars): This is a romance novella; it was short, entertaining, it had the fake dating and the friends to lovers tropes, and the main couple had lots of chemestry. It was nothing especial and it didn’t had any steamy moments, in case that’s what you were looking for 😉

The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin (3 stars): This was a very interesting book mainly because of the way Gretchen Rubin talked about happiness by quoting academy research and contrasting it with her own experience. The problem with this book was that it dragged so much, it felt repetitive and boring at points, nonetheless I have found myself remembering and thinking about some of the things she said well after finishing the book.

What I Read During Latinx Book Bingo

The Latinx Book Bingo took place from September 15th to October 15th and  I manged to read 7 books during that time:

What I Read in October 


The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky by Mackenzi Lee (4 stars): This was HILARIOUS! I laughted out loud so many times that my roommate was looking at me like I was the weirdest person ever. If you enjoyed The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, give this novella a go, you’ll enjoy it!

Lethal White by Robert Galbraith (4 stars): This is the fourth book in the Cormoran Strike series, I liked the mystery in this one with the whole political theme and obviously I loved the characters, I’m just so invested in them and their relationship. But I  have to admit it dragged a tiny little bit and the exploration of the relationship between Robin and Cormoran got a bit stuck and repetitive. Nonetheless, I really enjoyed reading this one!

Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas (4,7 stars): I really, really loved this book, it was such a great ending to the series, it made me cry a lot but  it also made me happy. It was a lot more action packed than the other books, but there was still so much character development. Honestly, this is one of my favorite series of all times, even if  I know it has its problems.

The Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller (4 stars): I really liked the main character in this book and the banter between her and the love interest. This book was super fast paced, even if it was character-driven and for the most part not much happened.

Have you read any of the books I mentioned? Did you enjoy them? Do you want to read any of them?Tell me what happened in your life during July! What did you read? What did you post?

  1. I have been dying to read The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky! I just can’t get enough of Monty haha. Your rating of Josh and Hazel’s got me curious though since other bloggers that I know who have read it were raving it like crazy. But glad I found a rating that made things even. 😊

    Congratulations on your move to Spain! Break a leg and I hope you have a fantastic November. 😊

    1. I hope you read The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky soon, it really is funny! I still recommend Josh and Hazel’s, I liked most of the book A LOT, but I had so many issues with the ending that I couldn’t give it a higher rating. Still totally worth the read!

      Thank you! 💛 I hope you have an amazing November as well!
