I've been bad this month. Just 3 books... I have been busy with all that was required of me for the purchase of the condo and now Eric is back and we're so incredibly busy... But it's not an excuse. Not even the fact that one of the books I read was pretty bad and another one was extremely heavy... I didn't know I was buying a book about the holocaust and I could not bring myself to read more than a few pages a day because I was getting so sad...

So this is what I read on February:

STATS:
- books read: 3 (tot 9)
- pages read: 1188 (tot 3325)
- average page per day: ~42 (~55)

Note: I'm writing this in a state oh hysteria because this is so damn good I can't handle it!

I am completely in love with this show.

I am so in love I've made (and added to my userpics) two icons and I added a rotating header of Miss Phryne Fisher and Detective/Inspector John "Jack" Robinson, I ship it so hard that I could break!

If you haven't watch this show yet STOP EVERYTHING and go on Netflix... You'll thank me!

First I want to share this, when my friends and I talk about someone who's hot... but very very HOT, we are use to say something like "my underwear just caught fire" or "my underwear flew out of my window" well... That's what happened with me 3 seconds after I saw Nathan Page's face in all its perfection... Binge watching this show has been a challenge for my underwear drawer... I need to go online and buy more... I mean:


HOW, GODDAMN IT, HOW?


And another pair of undies is gone...

So we were saying you should watch the series... This is why:

CLICK CLICK CLICKCollapse )
Are you watching it yet?

So... For as much as I understood, they're thinking about making 3 movies? Since Essie is in London and quite busy and Nathan is doing 39 steps with The South Australian Theatre Company (SATC) (I am considering... I always wanted to visit Australia and I often go to the theatre when I go visit a new place... xD) I have to say I am quite happy with the ending because it's not a big cliffhanger and I'm sort of scared of what the writer could do to now that we got there... There are few infos about the movies... Essie needs to be there because she's the show, but what if they do the movies just with her? Solving mysteries maybe in London with different partners in crime in every movie? As I said: Essie is the show, but the show is not the same without the rest of the gang... The fact the actress is in London now doesn't mean they can't shoot the majority of the pictures in England and some in Australia...

I don't know. For the people on my flist who watch it, do you have infos? Theories? Hit me in the comments!
And for who haven't seen it yet: what are you waiting for?

As you know I am Italian, so good food is pretty important in my life...

Like, I honestly get upset when I go to an Italian restaurant in the US and I order spaghetti and I see that watery thing appearing on front of me, or when I order a pizza and the crust taste like nothing because there is no salt in it!

So here some questions about food...


- Do you prefer sweet or savory?
- What is your favorite kind of cousine/what is your least favorite?
- Top 5 of your favorite foods / Top 5 least favorite foods.
- Taste changes: What did you like now that you didn't like when you were a kid?


my answersCollapse )

I wish you all a great weekend, if you go eat out I hope you'll go get something that's in your top 5 list! <3

I am also very happy about this "cover photo" I made! Love the coloring! I alo organized my "home video folder" on iTunes and you have to see it CLICK. Isn't is nice?

My last flist friday was almost a month ago! I am so sorry! I've been so busy and I had so much going on (I can't wait to be able to share what's going on, but I can't for now) but I'm here now! I'll try to be better and keep up with this weekly post that I like a lot because it gives me the chance to connect with you and know you better, and that's what I want to do here!

So:

Do you watch anime still or it's a thing for the past for you?
What is/was your favorite(s) anime?
Do you read manga? What's your favorite(s)?

I decided to change the format for this monthly post because what I was doing does not work very well with my layout (it worked when I was posting about a book every time I finihed one, but this way it looks messy). I am almost sure I will change again, but for now I think I like it!

STATS:
- books read: 6
- pages read: 2137
- average page per day: ~70

Hello friends. My Real Life is keeping me VERY busy, and I'm sorry if I'm short in my comments and I am super behind with my updates, but I need to take a break, and post this.

As you all know (at least the friends we have in common) on Tuesday January 24th Melissa aka tigtogiba34 and her boyfriend Joe, were in a serious car accident, and she is STILL currently undergoing treatment. She's fighting, but she needs help!


There is a GoFundMe campaign to help her and her family out.
You can find it HERE. I'm not the kind of person who asks for money to other people... I tend to donate and shut up about it, and not spread the word because I am weird and I feel weird about talking about this kind of things... but this time I feel like I have to! We all know - especially in the US - how ridiculously high the price of healthcare is (it's a thing that I hate over here in the States and it makes me so angry all the time... I hate this system). If all of us donate something we can make the difference. I know she would if some of us was in the same situation.

Think about the World we're living in! Just one post ago I was saying goodbye to the Obamas and saying we need to be the better version of ourselves if we want to make it through this 4 years... Skipping a breakfast at Starbucks and give these money to a cause like this can make the difference! I am not asking, I'm just saying: think about it!

Take care <3

Hello Flist! Happy Friday!

The week is almost over, and I hope you all are going to have a splendid weekend off!

Before I start with the question of the week, I wanted to share a piece of news. Here, at the International Airport of Fort Lauderdale, today there was a shooting and people died! I am glad no one I knew was at the airport today, but the thing scared me more than expected! I live 10 minutes away from the airport, and I can still hear outside a lot of police cars, and ambulances and sirens in general outside! It is scary! And, even if I didn't know anybody there I feel a sense of connection with these people! And I'm taking it almost personally! They caught the guy but I need to know why he did it, and how was it possible that he made it to Gate 2 with a gun! I know none of you on my FList were traveling down in Florida or out of it, so I am pretty sure you're all right! <3

But let's move to a brighter topic. Here's your question(s) I have for you today:


What are you reading at the moment?
What is your favorite genre?
Do you have set your goodreads goal for the year? What is it going to be?
BONUS: Mention 5 books you REALLY enjoyed in 2016

I am now reading Somerset by Leila Meacham. This is a prequel of the book (I think) made her famous: Roses. It's a very long book and I am very proud of myself for picking it up! It's over 600 pages and I am already 200 pages into it. It's a very easy read... If you are a fan of movies like Gone With The Wind, this might be the book for you!

My favorite genre is probably Historical Fiction, followed by SciFi and Romance (but not the kind of romance books with a Fabio on the Cover... I need more in a book that just romance).

I have set a goodreads goal and I set it again to 30. Last year I ended up reading 40 books! This year I want to read more than that, but I want to start with 30 and see how I go before changing it!

The 3 books I've enjoyed the most this past 2016 were:
- The Gravity of Birds by Tracy Guzeman
- The Edge of the Earth by Christina Schwarz
- The Violinist of Venice: A Story of Vivaldi by Alyssa Palombo
- Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter
- Man Walks Into a Room by Nicole Krauss

I can't wait to read your answers! Stay safe this weekend! Love you guys <3!

Last year I set my Goodreads Challenge to 30 books.... When I reached my goal I set it up to 36 and I ended up with 40 (38 plus a short story and a graphic novel) I set my goal at 30 again this year, but I will probably change it down the line! Thing is I am starting with a book that is 606 pages long! So I feel a little bit overwhelmed already LOL!

I'll soon do either the book meme or a personal top 5 of the books I've read this year (and I'll do the same for shows and movies probably), but for now: Here's what I've read this month:




Lord of the Flies
Originally published: 1954
Author: William Golding
Genre: Classic
(reading time Nov 27 - Dec 18)
★★★★
A great classic! I loved going back reading some of these books this year! This is another heavy one! A book that must be read multiple times on our lives to allow us to reflect on something very important about the human kind. I'm glad I did it this year, I'll probably come back to this book again later on in my life!




The Princess Diarist
Originally published: October 18th 2016
Author: Carrie Fisher
Genre: Non Fiction / Autobiography
(reading time: Dec 19- Dec 23)
★★★★
I wanted to put my hands on this book as soon as I've heard the rumor Carrie was writing it... I have to confess I was way too interested in the truth about her and Harrison, especially if given in the form of diary pages written by a 19 year old Carrie...

I enjoyed this book more that I expected... I wasn't after all expecting a lot of details about how they did it, when they did it, how many times, how was it,... but I appreciate the way it was written. I've never read anything from Fisher and I enjoyed her way of telling stories, she's - as much as this adjective might sound weird when used for her - candid... she tells you thing for what they are... she seems True to herself and to her fans...

Read more...Collapse )




The Little Bookshop on the Corner
Originally published: Feb 11th, 2016
Author: Jenny Colgan
Genre: Fiction
(reading time: Dec 24 - Dec 31)
★★★★
This was a surprisingly good read! A very light book, highly recommended. The characters are very enjoyable and feel quite real and have layers! I enjoyed the dialogue and the whole narrative. A very good book!

I wasn't expecting the romance and I wasn't expecting it to happen that way! The only "negative thing" I can say is: I felt the end was a little bit rushed, 50 more pages would have not hurt to explore a little bit more Nina's situation in the romantic department... It feels like it happened too fast and it wasn't properly trigged!

But it was a good book and I really enjoyed it! I will read more about this author!
