Currently reading: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

I cannot wait until I finish the book! Six of Crows [The Book Depository] is too good to be real! Not only I got hooked because this amazing Ocean’s Eleven has captivated my heart, but also because all the characters are flesh and bones. Six dangerous outcasts are on a mission: to break into an impenetrable fortress to save the world. Everybody says it’s an impossible heist. And yet, our six heroes will try the impossible, despite the odds, and themselves. They love each other and hate each other. So, I’m reading at a frenzy ratio to know if some of them are going to kiss or slit their throats open!

Joanne M. Harris Runemarks: you have to love Loki

You have to read Joanne M. HarrisRunemarks. If you love Loki, this is another great piece of literature on him. I read The Gospel of Loki time ago, and then I put my eyes onRunemarks. It’s a masterpiece. If you compare the sizes of The Gospel of Loki and Runemarks you’ll realize that Loki has been creating some mischief. One book is small, and the other is so big. Blame the trickster.

Be advised: there are mild SPOILERS ahead. But don’t be surprised to find tons of incredible mischief, chaos, and trouble. If you find Loki in a book, well, he sets up stuff to be frenzy.

The Sleeper and the Spindle, the review

I just read The Sleeper and the Spindle [The Book Depository] and it was glorious. I also purchased the audiobook on Audible and combining the two was the best thing ever!

This is a masterpiece by Neil Gaiman. This is a new fairy tale. I’m sure that just reading it is a pleasure. However, combining the book and the audiobook is completely perfect. The audio effects are amazing. I think that the book earns a new insight when combined with all the sounds.

How to cover your books and comic books like a pro!

Today I want to share with you how to cover your books and comic books like a pro. I’ve been putting clear covers on my trades and books to keeping them safe since times immemorial. Even my mother has used me as the official librarian of the family: when I go back home I know I’ll be putting covers on books!

Why do I cover my books and comic books? I want to make sure that the paper covers are protected. Most paperbacks and trades can be damaged very quickly. Using clear covers allows me to keep them safe and to enjoy the covers in all their glory.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Review

I finished The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time [The Book Depository] in two days. The books is brilliant: you enter into an Autistic kid’s mind and how he navigates and sees the world around himself. Christopher is a fifteen-year-old kid with autism. He lives with his dad. One day, when he takes a night walk, he discovers that someone has murdered the neighbor’s dog. And so, he decides to investigate who killed him.

This book is a breathtaking adventure where you discover the ins and outs of an autistic mind. And you do that from two points of view; Christopher’s and your own. You get involved in his world, and you end up questioning yourself how many different brains and ways of taking the world are out there.

The Martian Review; or how to grow your potatoes on Mars

So, I finally read The Martian (The Book Depository). Please notice that I haven’t seen the movie. So, all the information here is about this brilliant book. It was capable of getting me hooked on a guy growing potatoes on Mars.

I’ve never been so hooked on a science fiction book before. The technical stuff didn’t seem unbearable, but necessary since I wanted to know what was going on Mars. I found the reading pace very fast, highly entertaining and smart. This came as a shock since I expected something else.

Funko Friday: Cute Funko Pops and Books

Welcome to Funko Friday! We’re going to take a look at some Funko Pops and books on Instagram this week. The topic is magic and independent women who kick ass. I love all these Pops but for different reasons: some are thieves, others are adorable, others are just deadly. But all of them have something in common: they’re adorable! How can we say no to a Pop? Since my Pops acompany me while reading books, I chose books related to them. Take a look at the pictures and think for a while why I chose that book for that Pop. Then, read my reasons. Did you get it right?

Percival is not what he seems. After watching Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them I was bugged with him. He wasn’t exactly him, but someone else who tried to steal magic (the suitcase). Hence, Percival’s best book companion is Thief’s Magic [The Book Depository]! Although the book isn’t as simple as that, I think that Percival would have a heart attack with it.

Funko Friday: Funko Pops and Books on Instagram this week

Welcome to Funko Friday! Today I’m going to talk about Funko Pops and books on Instagram this week. I’ve changed a bit the way I post on Instagram, and to reflect that I decided to share an appetizer here. Why? Because I love Pops, comics, and books. Yes, for me comic books are books. And so, I start with Valentine’s Day! I got a blind date with a book. Although the unboxing (rather un-wrapping) video will come later on, I can tell you that this made my day! I was quite gloomy, and suddenly I got this mysterious present. It doesn’t say who the sender is nor the sender knows what book I got! (So, unless you tell me who you are, I’m not going to tell you what book was inside before releasing the video. Ha!)

I felt like getting Newt‘s suitcase in a way. You don’t know what’s inside, nor the scope of that magical suitcase. In any case, this idea rocks and I loved it. I also had a blast unwrapping the whole thing. (Yes, I’m still editing the video.)

Rivers of London Review

Rivers of London is an amazing ride. Today I’m going to review this fantastic book. Keep in mind that I love Sherlock Holmes, fantasy and science fiction. So, there’s no surprise here why I might love Rivers of London so much. Rivers of London was titled Midnight Riot in the US.

The hero of the book is Peter Grant, a young countable from the Metropolitan Police. He has to investigate a crime, and the primary witness is a ghost. He works along with his superior Inspector Nightingale, who is a wizard.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is a fantasy classic that children and grownups can enjoy. I decided to re-read all Harry Potter, and the first volume came with delight: Snape. I can’t say anything about Harry because I don’t like him very much. But Hermione, Snape, and Luna are perfect for me.

This first volume is fun, super quick to read, and an excellent way to get hooked in the Harry Potter series. I had already forgotten how much fun I had with it years ago. This time, I’m reading the UK version of the books. Even so, Hagrid comes as a complicated character. His way of speaking kills me. But he’s such a soft giant!
