Top 10 Favorites of 2015 | Favorite Books
Hi guys! As you might know today starts the last week of 2015. Yes, next week by this time we will be in 2016. Can you imagine? This year went by so fast. Because of that this week will be dedicated to my favorites of 2015. It might be books, it might be TV Shows, it might as well be my favorite covers of 2015, I still don’t know for sure but I’ll have a new list each day. Actually, if you want me to do a list of something just tell me in the comments. I might like the idea and do it 🙂 . To start this week I thought that I should start with my Top 10 Favorite Books of 2015, however, and because I keep cheating in these things, I’ll be showing you not 10 but 11 books (technically it’s more than 11 because I’ll have books from the same series). So let’s see some of my favorite books.
Disclaimer: These books are books that I’ve read in 2015 and because of that some of these books were released before this year. Also, the books that I’m going to show are going to appear in a random order because I couldn’t choose my favorite. Continue reading
Book Traveling Thursdays #16 – Favorite Diverse Book
Today is thursday which means that is Book Traveling Thursdays, a weekly meme created by me and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. This weekly meme consists in picking a book related to the weekly theme that is announced in the group Goodreads page (if you want to join click here) at the beginning of each month. After that you can write a blog post where you explain why you choose that book and choose different covers from different countries. To make it a little bit easy you are going to choose different editions of the original cover, the cover from your country, your favorite cover, and your least favorite cover. This weeks theme is Everyone loves Diverse Books. Choose your favorite diverse book. For this week I decided to choose one of my favorite books of 2015. The book is Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon. Let’s go see some covers. Continue reading

Summertime Madness Book Tag
Hi again 🙂 ! I was tagged by Cristina @ My Tiny Obsessions to do the Summertime Madness Book Tag (created by Jackeatsbooks) and because we almost at the end of summer I decided to answer it. Thank you Cristina for tagging me to do this amazing tag.
1. Show a book with a summery cover!
I’m stealing Cristina’s answer for this one and choose The Fill-in Boyfriend for this because I absolutely loved this book. Not only the cover looks summery but the book also has a lot of elements that remind me of summer so I had to choose this one.
2. Pick one fictional place that would be the perfect destination for a summer vacation!
For this one I’m picking Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. I would love to go to Paris and especially on summer so I needed to pick this one 🙂 . Also, this is another book that I loved and Paris is a really important part of it.
3. You,re about to go on a flight to your summer vacation. But you want to read a book that lasts for the whole flight, what novella do you choose.
This depends a lot of the flight I’m taking because it could be a short or a long flight. However I would try to pick a fast-passing book that I couldn’t let down while reading it. For that I would choose something by Colleen Hoover because I normally read her books in one-sitting.
4. You have a case of summertime sadness what happy book do you pick up to shine a smile on your face?
There are a few books that make me have a stupid smile on my face after reading it but most recently I finished Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon and I couldn’t stop smiling after reading it.
5. You’re sitting at the beach all alone…which fictional character would be your beach babe?
Do I have to choose only one?? That’s a difficult task but I would probably pick Will Herondale because I love him and he’s great and would be reading a great book at the beach.
6. To match your ice cream you want an icy cool sidekick! Which fictional sidekick do you pick?
This is an obvious one. I had to pick Patrick from The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The book is great and Patrick is great. I would have so much fun if he was my sidekick (also, this is an excuse to have Logan Lerman’s beautiful face on my blog 😀 ).
7. Share the summertime happiness! Who do you tag?
This tag has been around for a long time so I’m not tagging anyone in particular because I’m pretty sure that almost everyone has already answered to this tag. I’m tagging everyone you wants to do this tag so if you end up doing it just tell me in the comments 😀 .
Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon – ARC Review
September 1st 2015
Random House Children’s
If you love Eleanor and Park, Hazel and Augustus, and Mia and Adam, you’ll love the story of Maddy, a girl who’s literally allergic to the outside world, and Olly, the boy who moves in next door . . . and becomes the greatest risk she’s ever taken. This innovative and heartfelt debut novel unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, illustrations, and more.
My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.
*ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*
I wanted to read this book since the moment I first heard about it and after reading some reviews I needed to read it even more. I f you haven’t heard about this book (something that I doubt) basically it is about a 18 year-old girl, Madeline, that is allergic to the world and can’t leave her house. Maddy lives a «normal» life and only has contact with her mom, her nurse and confident Carla and some teachers that sometimes go to her house. This is until Olly’s family moves in next door and changes her life. I loved the characters from this book and how they were described. They are normal people with flaws like everyone but even when it looked that someone was doing something wrongs you knew that they were doing for a reason. Maddy is a great character that tries to live her life as normal as she can but starts to feel that she wants more after meeting Olly. I also loved how Olly felt the need to protect Maddy and everyone around him especially after knowing what he was going through. The scenes between the two of them were so cute, funny and sweet that I could read a lot more pages of that. In the beginning it looks like it is an instalove thing but due to Maddy’s situation and because it was so well written it was something that didn’t bug me as much as normally would.
This book might seem short but the characters development is great and you can see the difference in the characters at the end of the book, especially Maddy. Not only that but I also loved how the chapters in this book were organized and how it wa filled with illustrations that were important for the story. The most important for me was how the end was left open to the reader’s imagination and how amazingly this was done.
Overall, this was a beautifully well-written book and was one of my favorites of the year so far. I loved everything about it and anything I write about this book will not make any justice to it. You should definitely read this book. I look forward to read more books written by Nicola Yoon.
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If you haven’t read it would you read it?
