Books are more than a words

Happy New Year! Let's celebrate with a Giveaway!

2015 has been a crazy year. I think everyone of us had ups and downs, but the greatest thing is that WE ARE ALIVE. Or that’s what I like to think. I’ve been blogging less than last year, but I still love this blog so much, even though sometimes I feel like a robot because I “say” too little in my posts. (In case you don’t know that’s because English is not my mother language and I learned it by myself, so I still feel doubts every time I write something).

So, this is how this year has been to me:
 -I read fewer books because: I don’t like to say this, but the reality is that I live in one of the most violent countries of the world. And this year someone very close to me was murdered. It was a shock and it did a mess with my mental health. But books helped me to get through this.

-I was studying like crazy to be accepted in the university I wanted (spoiler alert: I wasn't)

-I started losing sight. OMG! Mom always said this day would come, (believe it or not, carrots are miraculous!)

-I've been learning how to write a book, well, reading about creative writing (but don't worry, I only write in Spanish)

My favorite books of 2015
 I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson. I loved this book so much!

All The Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. Finch... *sigh*

The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski... All the feels!!

My most anticipated books of 2016.
 The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater. If Gansey dies I will die.

The Winner's Kiss by Marie Rutkoski. If Krestel and Arin don’t find their happy ending I will die.

Lady Midnight by Cassie Clare. If I don’t see old-Simon Lewis I will die.

Books I didn't read this year, but that I am dying to read.
 An Ember In The Ashes.

Six of Crows.

Queen of Shadows.


Blogs I read every day (or at least every time I got an email through my subscription)
 Reading After Midnight. I miss you, Ari.

Fiktshun. The best challenges are always here.

In Love With Handmade. Pili’s so cool! I want to stalk her.

YA Romantics. I love Jen’s reviews!

I think that's all there is.
Now, because you were too cool to stop by, you can win a book of your choice up to $20. INT as long as TBD ships to you.
Winner has 24 hours to reply after I contact her/him.
NOTE: If you don’t win, come back next month, since I started this year as a planner, I’ve planned a giveaway for every month.

I wish you have the of best of the years! Happy reading!

  4. You've had such an up-and-down year, Lis! Do NOT lose hope because of the valleys - I don't know the situations, but I do know that in terms of the university and apps, you'll end up exactly where you'll belong and fit and love. :) Best of luck with all things life and bloggy, Lis! *hugs*

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  5. I love Pili, and I do stalk her! Haha. I am also waiting for The Raven King and I really want to read Six of Crows this year, too. Keep writing, it is good for the soul. I hope this new year brings more peace to your country. Happy New Year!

    1. I hope you enjoy Six of Crows! Thank you!

  6. Oi Lis, darling, what a tough year 2015 was for you! *hugs* I'm so sorry to hear someone dear & close to you was killed, but I'm glad to hear you are still safe, even if you are losing sight (eat all the carrots miss!). I do hope 2016 will be filled with all the good things that 2015 lacked! And girl don't worry about your English, it is awesome!

    I'm beyond honoured that my blog is one of those that you love and read every day! *hugs* Feel free to stalk me sweetie! ;)
