My New Uploading Schedule

SONY DSC

Hey guys I’m back!

I hope you guys had a lovely week. Well, I survived my first week of university and l loved it, I adore all my professors and my classmates. The only downside was that I got bombarded with assignments and had no time for myself. Every time that I got home from uni and drivers ed I ended up passing out on my bed. But now that drivers ed is finally over and I have an idea of how my uni schedule is going to be like, I can now fit my blog back into my life, woohoo! I don’t think I’ll be able to make a post for everyday of the week, at least not right now, so instead I’m going to post every other day. So here is the new schedule that I’ve made for myself.

Life Update

Hey guys!

How have you guys been? It’s been a few days since I’ve been on here. I started drivers ed last Monday and so far it’s going pretty well, but I can’t wait until it’s over. So on Monday I’m going to be starting my first day of university and I’m so nervous guys, I have no idea what to expect. I already had assignments to do this week for Monday and that plus drivers ed meant I had no time for myself, for this blog or for reading </3. I already know I’m going to be pre writing my posts like I normally do, but I’m not sure how well I’m going to be with interacting with you guys. I’m going to try really hard to make time for that because I personally love reading your guys’ posts, but I’m going to see how this week goes and see how I’m going to do it all. Please please please be patient with me while I sort my time out because I promise I’ll be active as soon as possible.

Thanks for reading ❤

Nope, my mom actually named me Beatriz because of its meaning “brings joy”. 

2. When was the last time you cried? 

Last week.

3. Do you have kids? 

Nope.

Weekly Top Favorites #4

tumblr_static_tumblr_static__640editHey guys! Welcome to another weekly top favorites, where I discuss all my current obsessions. 

mv5bnzywoda5mzuxnv5bml5banbnxkftztgwmty5ndqwmdi-_v1_ux182_cr00182268_al_TV Show: Criminal Minds

I’ve always loved watching criminal minds, or really any show that deals with CSI/Crime and mystery. I’ve never watched criminal minds in order, only when it was on tv because for some reason I don’t mind watching these kinds of shows out of order since every episode deals with a different crime, and the side plots are pretty easy to follow. But I got curious to see how this show started off since its been running for 12 years now, so I started from season 1 and I fell in love with all the characters all over again. 

If you’ve never heard of criminal minds, this is what it’s about: An elite squad of FBI profilers analyzes the

International Book of the Week #4

edit2

 

4214This weeks international book of the week: Life of Pie by Yann Martel 

Original language: English. I was pretty surprised this was listed as an international book until I googled the author and found out he’s originally from Spain. 

Why I chose this book: This book has been sitting on my shelf for years and I’ve never picked it up. I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to do so! I’ve never seen the movie and don’t really know what to expect, so I hope I end up liking it. 

What this book is about: Life of Pi is a fantasy adventure novel by Yann Martel published in 2001. The protagonist, Piscine Molitor “Pi” Patel, a Tamil boy from Pondicherry, explores issues of spirituality and practicality from an early age. He survives 227 days after a shipwreck while stranded on a boat in the Pacific Ocean with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.

Have you read this book, if you haven’t do you plan on ever reading it or are you not interested in reading it? Let me know your thoughts below!

I welcome any sort of helpful criticism.

Let’s Discuss #2: Diversity in Books

6918e72dcd97eee10acb08464618093dedit

Hey guys!

This weeks discussion is diversity in literature. I’m going to be honest with you guys, I rarely read books that have any type of diversity. Now, this isn’t because I don’t like the idea of diversity because I do, but because every book I pick up typically has the same cookie cutter type of character, I can’t escape it. Diversity in books shouldn’t even be a rare thing, but I feel like it is and it shouldn’t be.

There are so many types of people in the world from different races, cultures, religions etc. and yet it’s always the same type of person that gets portrayed in books and I’m bored with that. Whats crazy is the fact that I was always so use to reading books that contained the same type of characters, white female/male, who lives a pretty easy life and if the books included any POC character or character with some sort of disability they would be the only ones and would be used as the token character. It shouldn’t be weird or odd to have multiple different characters throughout a book who are different from one another.

Hey guys!

I thought it would be very fitting to do the TBR tag this week since my TBR pile is HUGE.

1. How do you keep track of your TBR pile?

I track my TBR pile on Goodreads.

2. Is you TBR mostly print or e-books?

It’s mostly e-books, I do wish I had them all in physical format, but one day.

3. A book that’s been on your TBR list the longest.

3431

According to Goodreads, I’ve have this book on my TBR list since February 2nd, 2014, so it’s been on the list for 3 years and I still haven’t picked it up.

This weeks topic: Book Trends You’re Tired Of – What are some things you are tired of seeing that are trends in publishing? Maybe something that pops up on a lot of covers these days, or the popularity of certain tropes in a particular genre? Let it out!

1. Love Triangles.

I know so many people agree with this one, and yet many authors add this annoying trope to their books. Its one thing if it’s done correctly, or if its essential to the plot, but most of the time it’s completely useless and could be written out.
