Stories to share

I have been reading more constantly this year, and I feel so happy about it. My husband showed me a new app to keep track of what you read, I was the kind of person that always brings a list of books or photos on my phone but when the time to actually get one, it was just imposible to go trough my files. So now I feel this app keep me organize and enthusiastic to reading more and more.

Goodreads is a database of books, annotations, quotes, and reviews. Users can sign up and register books to generate library catalogs and reading lists. Here is my profile of goodreads.

Malibu rising – Taylor Jenkins

This book was my first reading of this year and it was also my first time reading Taylor’s work. It wasn’t disappointing at all, I love her narrative and character struggles and hopes. I also loved the storyline back and forth from the present to the past. Add it to your list.

Little women – Louisa May Alcott

I have read classical books before and sometimes they are hard to read especially when they are not in my native language. This one was on my list a long time ago, and finally, I got the chance to read it. It was super involving, I love the characters and the simplicity of the stories.

Fanatical about frogs by Owen Davey

What I love about this book it’s that it looks like a scientific book, you can read it and not get tired of knowing more over and over again about frogs. Like his other books, Owen brings some type of life and interest with his illustrations to topics that are not easy to tackle, plus you will end feeling super smart.

Louis undercover – Fanny Britt and Isabelle Arsenault

I am a fan of Isabelle Arsenault work, this book in special was fascinating because it’s a comic book so I get to enjoy her work longer through each page.

What I liked about Louis undercover it was the complexity of the storyline and how representation matter in books, in this case, a family struggle with an alcoholic dad.

El tiempo de mi casa – Samuel Castaño

Samuel’s work in this book it’s exceptional. He shows in a simple but a profound way how things and time change when we lose our loving ones and how we get to process that. His work with collage and pencil is so great to see through the pages.
