WRAP UP ENERO & FEBRERO 🎉❤️ | #CurrentlyReading 2

Vamos a ver, vamos a ver. 

Porque no he hecho un WRAP UP desde que empezamos el 2017 y mi vida ha sido un caos estas últimas semanas, pero tengo 12 libros leídos ya y ahora tengo que hablar de los 12 en una entrada (porque obvs no es plan de hacer el WRAP UP de enero a principios como quien dice de marzo, ¿no? Pues eso.). La vida es maravillosa. 

Bueeeeeeeeeeeeeenas a todos!  🙋 Espero que esteis sentados, porque traigo el WRAP UP más largo de la historia de mi vida con todos los libros que he leído desde el 1 de Enero hasta el día de hoy. No voy a extenderme mucho en cada uno porque  hay reseña de (casi) 🙊todos en el blog, así que simplemente los voy a recopilar un poquito para tenerlos todos juntitos y poder pasar página, ¿vale?

logo-e1413893299806Mi vida desde que empezó el año ha sido trabajo, libros en francés, estudiar 📚, exámenes y, nada más acabar, asignaturas nuevas con profesores curiosos de tratar y vuelta al trabajo prácticamente todo el fin de semana… si cuando yo digo que no tengo tiempo material para nada, es verdad. Lo de leer en el Metro va en serio 🤓, es el único momento del día en el que no tengo nada más en lo que pensar.

Aun así estoy muy contenta con los libros que he leído así que os los voy a enseñar!  ❤️️

I am here today with an amazing review of an even more amazing book I had the pleasure to read this month and that comes out today!! Thank you so so much, Usborne UK for the ARC and for the opportunity you gave me to read it before it came out. It was fantastic of you, thanks!  💙

The book is, as you can see on the title (I dunno why I do try to create a buzz about it, but anyways), UNCONVENTIONAL  📁 🍍📱 by Maggie Harcourt!

btw, the final cover…  💙 💙 💙 💙 beautiful!!!

And it is actually a really really great book that allows us to get into this amazing world of bookish conventions that had made me so anxious to attend one of them!! I have never been to a bookish con before and I bet they are the best, so going is, no doubt, on my near future to do list!

REVIEW: WHEN WE COLLIDED – Emery Lord (🇬🇧) (57/59)

Hey everyone! 💞  It’s Anna and today I am bringing you here an amazing book that I loved from the begginign to the very ending, and that is WHEN WE COLLIDED by Emery Lord. 

whenwecollidedI know, I know. I have tons of work to do for college, and tons of books to read for college as well. But I am not really in the mood to do it, aaaaaaaaand this book is amazing and I read it en English, so that counts as practicing my reading skills and as improving my vocabulary about random topics. See? I am being responsible.

OH, and before we start with the review: I haven’t given this book 5 out of 5 stars because yes, I loved it but there are some others I’ve loved more, so I decided to take half of a fruit out, just to be fair. Does that make any sense? I don’t think so, Anna. Thank you.

Let’s just get into it, ok?

Hello everyone! It’s Anna and today I’m here (again) with a review! yayyyyyy 👏👏 👏

REVIEW: SHATTER ME – TAHEREH MAFI (42/55) 🇬🇧

Hello, everyone! It’s Anna and I know it’s been FOREVER since I wrote my last English post (if you haven’t seen it yet, click here), but I haven’t been reading anything this summer  (even though I planned to) and, besides, I wasn’t in the mood either. I have been feeling kind of uncomfortable with my blogger life and how things were coming back to me. I was feeling forced to read and review books that I wanted to read for fun… I was loosing the point of all of this blogger thing.

But now I’m reading and reviewing what I want and how I like to do it, because I still love talking about the books I read so… why should I stop doing this? 🙊🙌

Today I’m here with an AMAZING book I just finished, SHATTER ME by Tahereh Mafi ( I 💘 to pronunce this name, like Sabaa Tahir).

😱 Book Haul de emergencia 😱

Es un BOOK HAUL de emergencia porque no tengo tiempo para nada y os tengo super abandonados.

Bueeeeeeeenas, cosas guapas! ¿Qué tal? Yo muy descansada después de dormir 12h esta noche, no os voy a mentir. He tenido rodajes y no he estado durmiendo bien estos días ONE TREE HILL, FRIENDS Y SERIES SERIES SERIES, así que hoy por fin traigo una entrada, aunque sea cortita, sobre los últimos libros que han llegado a mi casa (comprados también, que yo sigo gastando dinero en literatura). El BOOK HAUL es… como desde junio hasta hoy, más o menos. Es que yo no llevo mucho la cuenta de estas cosas y con exámenes en junio, la vida que es muy complicada y demases (excusas excusas buuuuuuuuh) ando un poco despistada. Así que allá vamos !!! (Prometo volver con los #TGIF as soon as possible y con las reseñas, porque las últimas que he hecho me han deprimido un poquito, y estaba un poco desanimada en eso de reseñar libros, pero volveré, lo juro -ahora de verdad-).

Pues estos son los 👐💘💁👯 ÚLTIMOS LIBROS QUE HAN LLEGADO A MIS ESTANTERÍAS ultimamente desde hace no se cuantoooooo. 👯💁💘👐

Os dejo como siempre los links a Goodreads, que me parece mejor que hacer la entrada eterna con las sinopsis. SI QUERÉIS QUE LAS INCLUYA, pls, decídmelo en los comentarios. 

🌷 FullSizeRender (77)Los primeros que os quería enseñar son estos dos: la primera y la segunda parte de la trilogía de Blue Jeans Algo tan sencillo como… tal, que son Algo tan sencillo como tuitear te quiero & Algo tan sencillo como darte un beso. El primero ya está reseñado (pinchando en el nombre) y espero seguir con el segundo prontito, porque son libros super super frescos de leer y tan tan Blue Jeans que te tienen en vilo desde la página uno (y cortitos no son…). Los recomiendo muchísimo para verano, de vedad!!! 😍 😍 Y millones de gracias a la editorial Planeta por los ejemplares para reseñar, de verdad que gracias. 

🌸 SWEET BITCH de Krishna G.R. es un libro que me envió la editorial CHIADO  (gracias FullSizeRender (76)gracias de verdad por el ejemplar) para reseñar y… ay. Es que no está mal en sí. Va de una chica que ha tenido una vida difícil y empieza en la Universidad. Lo único es que los personajes, las situaciones y sobre todo las relaciones de amistad, familia y amor entre ellos me parecen suuper super irreales. Me está costando un poco leerlo, solo he pasado la barrera de las 100 páginas aún, pero prometo acabarlo y reseñarlo. Es como leer una historia cualquiera en Wattpad, con cohesión cuestionable y una trama que ni fu ni fa. Y Ryan me cae muy muy mal.

IMG_1122🌹 On Thursday I got on the mail TWENTY SHORT STORIES by Michael Ross. The author contacted me a few weeks ago. He asked me if I wanted to read and review (English section, of course) something of his and it actually took me like 3 seconds to say yes, so here is it! I haven’t checked it thoroughly yet (like I said before, I haven’t been sleeping really well lately and, guys, filming is super tired and whoever says it is not, lies) but I will soon. It seem like, you know, twenty short stories (duh) about different things like Lady James and I or Living a lie… I love reading this type of books because I can read more books at the same time and alternate them with little tales like ‘em (this is something I actually do already but, you know, I can do it more now). AND, yay, IT’S SIGNED! Michael is such a lovely person, I swear. 😍

🌺 Y para acabar con los libros gratis, tengo que enseñar Nadie como tú de J.A. Redmerski,
que gané en un sorteo del blog de la maravillosa Alice de EL RINCÓN DE ALICE AND BOOKS , con un marcapáginas fabuloso de su blog (cosa que me muero por hacer yo también). En serio, he visto mucho este libro por ahí y tengo muchas ganas de ponerme con él, y tiene pinta de que me va a encantar. A ENCANTAR, DIGO. 

Vale, se acabó lo bueno. En estos libros si que me he gastado el dinero.

La vida del lector es muy muy cara.: Anna Holland, 15/07/2016. Gran filósofa, mejor persona.

FullSizeRender (78)🌻 Los dos primeros libros de la trilogía de Kiss me de Elle Kennedyque son Kiss Me #1 – Prohibido enamorarse (del cual estamos haciendo una Lectura Conjunta durante este mes de julio) y Kiss Me #2 – Objetivo: tu y yo que estoy leyendo actualmente porque una amiga ya se lo ha leído y me amenaxa con spoilers. Me están gustado un montón, porque me recuerdan a los libro de Stephanie Perkins, con un mismo escenario pero distintas historias medio conectadas entre sí… ay chica, no se, pero me están gustando un montón. Además, apoyo el sexo normalizado (QUE NO ENFERMIZO) en la literatura, así que 😍 😍 😍. Cada uno son 17.95 €, un poco caros para ser finitos, pero la edición es preciosa y la letra, ínfima.

FullSizeRender (79).jpg🌼 Hace un par de días o tres me compré POR FIN El Tercer Durmiente de Maggie Stiefvater, que es la tercera (duh) de The Raven Boys que es una serie que ADORO CON TODA MI ALMA YY TODO MI CORAZÓN. De verdad, los dos libros que he leído hasta ahora me han enamorado, y las portadas con amor puro. Eso sí, os recomiendo que no sigáis a la autora en Goodreads, porque me hice el mayor spoiler de la vida sin comerlo ni beberlo porque Maggie lo publicó a los cuatro vientos, pero bueno. Tengo mil millones de ganas de ponerme con este libro, aunque supongo que NO LO HARÉ PORQUE SM NO HA ADQUIRIDO LOS DERECHOS DEL ÚLTIMO Y NOS VA A DEJAR A TODOS COLGADOS. Y ME ACABO DE ENTERAR AHORA. ¿CÓMO PUEDEN HACER UNA COSA ASÍ? QUE QUEDA UN SOLO LIBRO, POR EL AMOR DE DIOS. Ahora mismo quiero matar a alguien, lo juro.

🌾 I just got on the mail (today is 18th July, Monday, dear) my latest order from Amazon that includes two books I was dying to read. Firstly, we have Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. I wasFullSizeRender (82) loving this book with all my heart. I started reading it a few months ago, well, I was listening to the audiobook, but the device I was using wasn’t the best for it, it lost the page I was every time it turned off, and the headphones that goes with it pretty much sucks, so it wasn’t the best experience ever. I quit it, obviously. But now I found it cheap and I really really want to read it so, here it is! It’s finally home and I’ll be reading it as soon as I finish A Court Of Thorns And Roses by Sarah J. Maas, you know, I need some time with me, myself and I to process everything that’s happening because OH MY GOD, THIS CAN’T BE TRUE. WHAT. IS. GOING. ON????? Sorry. 

🍁The other one is the second part in the trilogy Never Never by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn FullSizeRender (83)Fisher. I read the first one sooner this year and I am obsessed with the story and how it
ends. The only bad thing is the giant spoiler (I guess it’s a spoiler, Idk for sure, I haven’t read them yet) on the covers, mostly on the third. But whatever, I’ll be catching up with the trilogy soon because I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WITH CHARLIE AND SILAS (I had trouble back when I first read it because I didn’t know which one was the girl and which one was the boy for instance, sorry for that) . THE END IS NOT FAIR AT ALL, SO PLEASE COLLEEN AND TARRYN, FIX IT. I HOPE YOU FIX IT. I HOPE YOU DO. 

🍂Oh, and I almost forgot to mention ZENITH – The Androma Saga #1 by Sasha Alsberg and Lindsay Cummings. I bought it on Friday for 1,77 € and I’m reading it on my tablet, can cidcoalwuaatlcnYOU believe it? I can’t. I don’t read digital books, like you know, never, but I love Sasha’s YouTube Channel and I love her, she is super sweet and I was really happy for her when she first announced she was writing a book with Lindsay. So I had to do it, I had to buy it and read it and I don’t really know what took me so long but, anyway, I have it now, I am reading it at the moment and, even though I don’t understand some words (YES, SORRY, I’M NOT FULLY BILLINGUAL, space vocabulary is not my friend YET). I like the story building for now, I have n0t read anything like this before so… we’ll see how it ends! (And the cover is gorgeous, isn’t it?)

Y bueeeeno, eso es todo (porque mi libro de teoría de alemán lo voy a obviar, no es bien recibido) así que hasta aquí la entrada de hoy. ¿Habéis leído alguno de estos libros? Si es así, ¡contadme en los comentarios ! Mil millones de besos  😗 😗 😗 a todos y gracias por pasaros por HOLLAND AND BOOKS una vez más, de verdad que este blog crece y yo no me lo creo y me hacéis muy feliz y meh. Me callo, sorry.

Os adoro mucho y nos leemos !! 💘 💘 💘

Real Neat Blog Award 🙈

Hello everyone! It’s Anna and today I am suuper super excited and I feel really happy to bring you the REAL NEAT BLOG AWARD! 🙊🙊 I have been nominated by the amazing Book Huntress’ World  blog (so thank  you thank you so much).

I planned this to be a really short and light post, so let’s get into it!

The Rules are (I feel very watermelon today):
🍉 Thank and link the blogger that nominated you.
🍉 Answer the 7 questions that the nomination has provided you.
🍉 Create 7 questions for your nominees.
🍉 Nominate 7 other bloggers.

Well, I don’t really feel like nominate anyone, feel free to do it if you want to. Anyways,  I’d like to suggest 🙋 Ana from THE MISSTERY blog 🙋  NOVELGOSSIP blog 🙋 The Writing Garnet blog 🙋 FROST AND BOOKS blog and 🙋 Chris from CHRIS MOON blog to do it. (Almost seven, I know). Don’t be evil, lads, it’s just a post  💘 

These are the questions that the lovely Alyssa from BOOK HUNTRESS’ WORLD has given to me, so here we go !

🍓Do you read non-fiction books?  Non-fiction doesn’t exist as a genre itself here where I live, but I read mainly fantasy and YA contemporary though.

🍒Which book or series do you consider a must-read? It depends if you like high fantasy or not, but I think The Name of the Winf by Patrick Rothfuss is a total must. 🍇 🍈 🍉 🍊 🍋 OUT OF 5. If you prefer to read YA, To all the boys I’ve loved before books are indispensable.

🍑How do you pick your next book to read? It depends, because my mood interfieres a lot when it comes to choose the next book I’ll be reading, so I need to kind of talk to myself and say Anna, how are you feeling today? and then I choose. But if I have bought a book recently, that one would win… That’s why I have a huge TBR pile with the same books all the time in it.

🍐Do you use bookmarks, or dog-ear? ALWAYS BOOKMARKS! Actually, I have a lot of them and I am OBSESSED. Besides, who does fold book pages? It’s disgusting. 💘 (don’t hate)

🍏Do you read beautiful passages a number of times, to savour like a wine tester? I usually mark them with a little tiny post-it to be able to suddenly go back and remember and CRY LIKE A BABY. 😭 😭 I do re-read beautiful quotes quite often.

🍎Do you drop the book if you are not engaged in first 50 pages? I don’t, just because I like to give it always a chance. Bute I have dropped quite a few books until now, like An Abundance of Katherines by the beloved John Green… it was terrible.

🍍Which book would you most like to see done as a movie? Oh, wow, a lot of them. But I think I would say Where She Went by Gayle Forman bc I liked this book way more than2003 the first (and I loved it) and the film adaptation was extraordinary (the OST… 😍 😍  ), so yes, I’d die to see it done as a movie (but Anna, this is not gonna happen… I know I know, but it’s so hard 😭 😭).

And this is for today’s post!!!

(I actually forgot to write my questions, it’s not a joke. I just thought it was hilarious. Isn’t it? Anyways…)

These are my questions for you guys, feel free to answer them (and please, let me know if you do because I’m gossip AF).

🍔 Best and worst I’m gonna buy this book because of this gorgeous cover? (I know there’s a word for this, excuse me, I’m dumb)

🍕 Do you have more black or colored books?

🍖 What genre do you want to read more, but you don’t?

🍗 Paperback or Hardcover?

🍜When you read a hardcover book, do you read it naked or  full-dressed? THE BOOK I MEAN, OMG.

🍝 Coffee or tea while reading? (I don’t like Cola, so coffee or tea? )

🍟 Are you a day-reader or a late night-reader? If you mainly read on the subway as I do, say it.

And this is everything (for real now) for today’s post. I hope you guys enjoyed it and please please, If you do this tag/challenge/award on your blog, let me know. I WANT TO KNOW. Desperately.

Thank you so so so much for reading it, feel free to follow my blog if you like (don’t forget to confirm the subscription by email if you don’t have a WordPress account!) and see you next time!!!!

Enjoy your reading ! 💘💘
