We are judges of our own lives only…

Sometimes I get caught in the society circle and I forget that judging others is not my job. It’s funny how people think they are superior. It’s funny how people just look at someone and they instantly think they know everything about that someone.

I like to think that I’m not judgy, I accept who I am and do my best to accept others even if their values and way of being are different than mine.

I am a #bookblogger but where is the time for reading?! πŸ€”πŸ’•πŸ“–

Hello readers! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’™πŸ“–

I don’t know about you but I find it very hard to finish a book lately. I don’t know if it’s the lack of time or the “I’m simply too tired” but I feel like I’m not able to get to the end of a book. Right now I’m in between Dreams of Gods and Monsters and Les MisΓ©rables and even though I enjoy both I can’t seem to advance.

If you wonder why I read two books at a time, I don’t really have an answer for that. I just do. πŸ˜‰

I guess that what I wonder a lot is how can some book bloggers read so many books and post so many reviews. Is it because the books they are reading are not very long or because all they do all day is read? I wish I could only read, but life doesn’t let me do it. πŸ™πŸ€”

#bookreview … Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Eleanor & Park
Plot: Two misfits.
One extraordinary love.

Eleanor… Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough…Eleanor.

Park… He knows she’ll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There’s a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises…Park.

Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-oldsβ€”smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. ( see it here ) Continue reading “#bookreview … Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell”

Why reading is important…πŸ’•πŸ“–

Hello all! πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—

Today is Saturday and normally this means more time for reading. I say “normally” because in my weekend life if I want to read I literally have to close myself in the bedroom and tell everybody in my house not to open that door unless the house is on fire. 😏 They never listen though, so the door is opened and closed until I give up my reading time and spend some quality time with them…aka Netflix.

I believe that all humans have a specific thing that they must do to relax. If someone says they don’t, it’s very possible that they did not discover it yet. My thing to do when I want to relax is reading. There is a magical moment that happens when I open a book. It’s like I’m being automatically transported in the imaginary world of the book. I can’t help it, it happens to me every time I read. Sometimes, when life becomes very hard to handle, escaping the reality for a few hours is quite comforting. I feel like I come back with new forces, ready to fight whether demon decided to enter my world. This is what reading does to me. So no, when people in my house decide to disturb my reading time, I’m not very happy about it. πŸ§πŸ™πŸ˜ Continue reading “Why reading is important…πŸ’•πŸ“–”

Add some more on my #TBRlist … πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•πŸ“–

“You didn’t even finish one book that you buy THREE more books…what is wrong with you?!” … asks my boyfriend desperate as he sees, again, an Amazon package at my door. πŸ˜πŸ˜… … #StoryOfaReader #mylifestory πŸ€ͺπŸ‘‰πŸ’•πŸ“–

You see, if you are not an avid reader you cannot understand the urge to buy new books when you already have so many unread. I look at my books and while I am aware that I have a huge pile that is waiting for me, I need to know that I will never miss a new book in case I need one. I mean, what if something happens and I can’t get out of the house for a long time?! 😁πŸ€ͺ😏 Continue reading “Add some more on my #TBRlist … πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•πŸ“–”
