On Loving “Evil” Characters: A Discussion

Can a character do bad things and still be likable? I write this post as I'm in the middle of reading The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. One of my absolutely favorite characters is The Darkling. I won't go into much detail, but what I'll tell you is that The Darkling is evil, twisted, wicked, … Continue reading On Loving “Evil” Characters: A Discussion

We Went to Our First Bookish Event, and Here’s How it Went:

  Up until about two years ago, there weren't any real bookstores here in Puerto Rico, and if there were, no events would ever occur in them. That's why it's been such a fervent dream of ours to one day attend BEA/Book Con, because we'd finally be able to meet our favorite authors! However, an answer to our … Continue reading We Went to Our First Bookish Event, and Here’s How it Went:

How Do You Feel About Steampunk?

Let's Discuss! I personally have a love-hate relationship with steampunk.  On one hand, I absolutely love the cleverness of it.

I don't like Valentine's Day. It's become so comercialized and trivial nowadays. I feel like love should be shown every day, not one day a year.

So, because books are the only companions … Continue reading Books to Read to Forget You’re Single on Valentine’s Day

Bookish Bucket List/Resolutions for 2015

I love making lists. Seriously. I think there's something wrong with me. Most of the time, I try to write lists in my reviews, but then I realise I should probably try to be more "eloquent" so I don't use the list. This time, however, I have no choice but to use a list and … Continue reading Bookish Bucket List/Resolutions for 2015
