OMG! Where should I start with the new season of GOT, it's been insane, of course this season bring lots of changes, since it's the first one where the difference between the books and the show are going to be more obvious, not that they didn't take liberties before, but this one has been huge!
Instead of making a recap of the whole episode I decided to make highlights of them, of course they have spoilers, still if you want to share your opinion about the show please leave a comment!

The Time of your Life / Review

The Time Of Your Life by Cecilia Ahern
Lucy has been navigating through her life as a non-present figure. She lives in a small apartment, has a car that most of the time fails, hates her job, her family irritates her, and her friends seriously annoys her.
Then Lucy starts receiving strange letters to make an appointment with her Life. Finally she decides to go and see what Life wants from her, but she would be surprised to see that her Life is a sloppy but determined man, who is going to follow her everywhere, putting in evidence all her mistakes, all the lies that she told, revealing them to her friends, family, co-workers, employee.
Lucy has now one choice. Accept all those mistakes, and take responsibility for her acts, or let Life reveals everything to those who are close to her.

My Thoughts
I must admit that at the beginning of the book I was a little skeptical; I mean an appointment with your Life? I thought it was ridiculous, but the more I read the book, the more I understood and I felt a connection with it.
Lucy was heartbroken, and during the months that followed, she forgot about herself, she forgot about what was actually living, how it was to enjoy a moment, no matter how simple the moment was. When she met her “Life”, she noticed his bad breath, his out of date clothes, his bad presentation. She notices the bad on him but not on her.

I don’t want to give anything away, so I would only say that this book was a beautiful lesson, a reminder, a “stop, look around you, and see, actually see how all your decision would affect you” and specially that it’s up to you to take the control and actually do something for get better and change.

Penny Dreadful + First Season Recap (video)

A dark and mysterious saga with lots of suspense, in a world between reality and supernatural, this show presents some of the most terrifying characters of literature. 
When Sir Malcolm’s daughter is missing, Vanessa Ives joins forces with him to find her. They form a deeper bond, and the duo grows to a group which includes Ethan Chandler, Victor Frankenstein and Sembene. They’re going to try to bring Mina back, and banish the evil forces that threaten to destroy them.
There are other characters that would enrich the show with their presence, and giving the story and events the perfect twist.

I made a recap of the first season in case you want to know more about the show, but honestly it's just amazing and Eva Green is perfection!

Love, Rosie / Review

Love, Rosie by Cecilia Ahern

Rosie and Alex had been friends all their life, they went to the same school, sat next to each other, but then Alex must move to Boston leaving behind his beloved Rosie, who even  when she applied to Boston College, would have a change of life when she discovers she’s pregnant.
She quit her dreams, focus all her attention on little Katie, who would be the reason of her existence.
Meanwhile, Alex is accepted in Harvard and is on his way to become a doctor. Still, even when life had been pulling them away, Rosie and Alex would remain friends, no matter the fights or their relationships. What’s even more, they are meant to each other, and life has other surprises for them.

My thoughts
When I saw the movie (yes, I saw the movie before reading the book), I totally felt in love with Alex. OMG, Alex! So of course the book was a must read immediately.
But book and movie were different and never ever felt more related with a character until I read about Rosie Dunne. Setting aside the love part, Rosie and Alex could have been my best friend and me. Not the same story of course, but the quirks and familiarity of the relationship. And if you have a best friend of the opposite sex, I’m sure you would relate too.
This book would bring back your childhood, teenage and college years. It would bring back those forgotten dreams because life happens.
The romance on the story was something that kind of frustrated me, maybe it was because once I started reading the book, I keep imagining Alex as my BFF and waiting for him to announce that he was gay. I felt like a relationship between men and women always has to end in romance instead of true friendship.
But setting apart that, I loved that Rosie finally let herself to had her dream com true, that she worked hard to accomplish it.

So of course this part absolutely inspired me. It’s never too late to work for what you want.

No rain please!

Thursday!!!! I can't believe this week I only had to work three days, well, technically I came to work on Monday, but surprise surprise, the school was closed and the security guard told me that the Principal called on Saturday telling him that the classes were suspended, hell yes, I went back home, all this between 5:50 and 7:00 am, so by 7:10 I was again on my pjs on bed and looking some youtube videos, and then I felt to sleep, nice days, I can't complain.
Well, since I'm still figuring out some stuff for the channel and of course here on the blog, today I'm just going to share a video, just because I'm kind of nostalgic, did you remember this song?, every single time it appears ramdonly on my ipod I can't help it but smile.

Loving This Week

Hello Guys!
Hope you had an amazing week and weekend, Sunday here and tomorrow is back to work, but the good news is that on Tuesday I have a free day and I'm planning to work on some videos for the channel and of course here! 
This week my reading habits was a little limited, I don't know why, but even on my way home which is one of the moments that I use for reading, I didn't feel in the mood, and just enjoy the ride and view most of the week. On Friday, since it was free day for us, HBO put a marathon of Penny Dreadful, and of course I finally watched it, can't wait for the second season!!!

Here are some links of posts I loved this week:

Those posts were close to my heart, people forget most of the time that other beings are suffering in this world and adopt is so important. My cats are not from shelters, I found Manta on the garbage outside my house, and Belioz was starving on the roof of an abandoned building, so if you have the space, the time and specially the love, consider adoption as a choice

Also from Free People: Where's All The Time Go? just a reflection about our life and time
Imogene + Willie shared Worn Wear, a very inspirational team who repair clothes and teach people to do them themselves, so beautiful and inspirational, watch the video, highly suggested!

And my final favorite, Sanne from Books and Quills made this amazing vlog sharing her time visiting Far From The Madding Crowd locations

Happy Sunday Lovelies!!!!! GOT day!!!!
