TGIF #2 | THE REST OF US JUST LIVE HERE – PATRICK NESS 🇬🇧

HELLO EVERYONE! It’s Anna and THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY. It’s Wednesday for me though, but I am very very busy this weekend and I wantet to have everything done before I got out of time. I SWEAR THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN TO ME 💪 💪

Good, I’m here today with another THANK GOD it’s Friday and I READ blah blah blah IN ENGLISH post, but today’s gonna be a little bit different. Since I just finished this book and I haven’t reviewed it yet, I thought to do both things at the same time, because I would talk  about this book either way and It’s easier for me to do them both today. So, yaaaay 😁 😁

IMG_0500WELCOME AGAIN TO THANK GOD it’s Friday and I READ THE REST OF US JUST LIVE HERE IN ENGLISH (slash) REVIEW 

🍋 🍌 🍍 🍎.5 / 5

I don’t really know where to begin, because I loved this book with all my heart and soul and with every part of my body because it’s amazing. And, btw, I couldn’t have read this one in spanish mainly because it does not exist. So, you know. 😂

This will be a short review since I don’t want to spoil anyone, but If you feel this anxiety due to not to be able to talk to anybody about this book (because none of your frieds has read it), feel free to write me an email or something, because NOBODY THAT I KNOW HAS READ IT AND I’LL DIE. So, please, don’t doubt.

I’m sorry. 😳 😳 😳 😳

Well, this book follows the story of this group of friends in this little town where the indie FullSizeRender (75)kids live as well. They are the ones that have to deal with the vampires and stuff, the adventures corresponding to the ordinary protagonists in every single book. But in this one, the protagonists are the other guys at school who watch every supernatural thing that happens from the outside. They are the indie kids‘ school mates.

The main main character is Mikey. All of them are about to graduate from highschool and, suddenly, the indie things that happen to indie kids start to affect them, but they already have their own real problems to deal with, because they are just kids with mundane issues.

Mikey has anxiety and an Obsessive Compulsive Disorder that consists of loops he can’t stop, her sister Mel deals with and eating disorder that almost killed her… And I think this issues are really well built and they are not just there for sell the book. You know what I mean? I think they provide the characters with depth and that’s cool to read.

a668f5d4-8ac3-4bf0-80d8-682d66a55d4c-_cb291801059_The sroty-line it’s not like the greatest thing in the world, because it doesn’t really happen anything since the supernatural things are happening to the indie kids. The author actually gives us a little piece of the indie kids’ adventures at the beginning of every single chapter, for us to follow it, but the main character’s story doesn’t really have a development and an end. It is great because it has, as I said, real problems, real situations, but it doesn’t have a proper end.

On the other hand, there are many other situations that have to be solved like insecurity and friendship, and love, and that feeling you may think is love but it’s just stomach ache… That’s what our story is really about. It’s a view more that a story itself. AND THAT’S WHY I LOVED IT SO SO MUCH.

I bet you have never read a book like this, so I really recommend you to pick up this one. Patrick write’s like heaven, super fun and super real. 

I think I already spoke too much.😂 😂

Well, I think this is everything for today’s post/review. I hope you guys enjoyed and I really hope you to read the book, because it will reach your heart, I promiseOH, AND I’LL BE POSTING A REALLY COOL BOOK TAG ABOUT THIS BOOK VERY SOON, SO STAY TUNNED !! (It’ll be in Spanish, but still). 😅💛 😅💛 😅💛

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 !! 💘 💘

oh, and btw, next Friday won’t have his TGIF post because that day a group of bloggers and I will start reading a book, like all together, and I have to post the beginning of it this excat Friday, so… I promise I’ll be back next week and I’ll upload another post in English to make up for it, probably on Tuesday. Love you 💛💛

TGIF #1 | Fangirl – Rainbow Rowell 🇬🇧

HELLO EVERYONE! It’s Anna and THANK GOD IT’S FRIDAY. I just finished my exams yesterday and I’m officially on holiday! It’s wonderful, isn’t it?

IMG_0307.GIFWell, since we all are happier on Friday, I thought I could open the new section on Friday so the next (maybe, I don’t know for sure) seven/eight weeks I’ll be posting about those books I thank God I read in English instead of in Spanish. It’s not like a review, but a recomendation-ish for those who want to start reading in English and don’t know where to start. All Right? So…

THANK GOD it’s Friday and I READ FANGIRL BY RAINBOW ROWELL IN ENGLISH. (🍊 🍋 🍌 🍍 🍎 /5)

FullSizeRender (72)I wanted to start with this book because it’s the first full-book I fully read in English, from beginning to end and I LOVED IT WITH ALL MY HEART. 

Fangirl it’s about Cath who’s about to move to college next year. She’s always been this super shy girl who lives in her own world where the only important thing is her fanfics (that are pretty famous, btw), her sister and nothing else. This is the story of her getting out her comfort zone and exploring the real world that she has never known before. We have struggling in this book, and romance, and betrayal and self-improvement. We follow the Cath’s college-life and her sister’s and Levi’s (who is the cute, LIKE REALLY CUTE boy).

Seriously guys, this book is sooooo good that I totally loved it when I first read it. It was last year and, as I said, I had never read anything before (nothing fully at least) in English and I don’t know what came to my mind when I ordered it on Amazon , but I’m very glad I did it because, since then, I know I’m capable of reading in English and that has given me the opportunity to read amazing books that I wouldn’t have read in Spanish. Like at all. 

23c184016a4f075f60dbcaf17981d6e8And I know that I wouldn’t have liked it as much as I did if I had not read them in English. I don’t know but those who read both translated and original-version books probably know what I mean. It’s a totally different experience and it leaves a totally different feeling.

I decided to start with this book and I was totally right because it is very light reading, the vocabulary is super simple and easy to understand through the whole story and, guys, the plot-line is fantastic and fabulous and I completely fell in love with Cath (even though I thought she was a little bit immature at the beginning but still) and Levi and their relationship and spoiler alert (select the blank space to read it) the read this book to me out loud because I can’t concentrate in reading by myself till I fall sleep in your bed because I feel so comfortable with you that it would be totally possible is OMG, THE FEELS.

It’s true that the Simon Snow/ Harry Potter fanfic parts were a little slow to me and sometimes I found myself wondering why I wasn’t reading at the moment, and then I realized that I was blocked at that Simon Snow fanfic part that was too long for me to bear. But don’t you worry, child, just skip them if you need to. I did it because I wasn’t that used to read in English and it felt totally overwhelming so, I just didn’t. AND I AM A SUPER HARRY POTTER FAN, don’t misunderstand me. 😅 😅

But still,  I loved this book with all my heart and I recommend it so much. It’s an amazing YA book and OMG; I only have nice words for Fangirl so, please, read it! I need to fangirl about Fangirl with someone (like if you laughed, it was meant to be funny). 👍 👍

And that’s all for today’s post!! Thanks everyone for reading it and thank God it’s Friday and I hope you had a great time. See you next Friday, (or even sooner).
