Book mail is the best mail! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Take a look at what I got from @uppercasebox this month:
πŸ“– Rosemarked by @lkblackburne (signed)
😌 Rosemarked mint tea
πŸ“” Moby Dick notebook from PublikumArt
πŸ’‹ The Balm on Mango Street lip balm from RML Apothecary

Yeah... another amazing box from Uppercase! πŸ’–
β€’
I’m still practicing my hand-lettering, so I made this today to show it with my book mail from Uppercase πŸ˜„ I would love to learn to paint with watercolor, so I can start making some bookmarks! 😍
β€’
How are you doing today? Any plans? We went to the movies last night to see Justice League and it was great. And this time, the electricity didn’t went out, like the last time we went to see The Foreigner.
Wonder by R.J. Palacio πŸ’™ I read it a few months ago and it was such a lovely read. I can't believe the movie is already here! (At least in PR). We are planning to go see it this weekend. And yes... I'll take some tissues with me πŸ™ƒ
β€’
Have you read it yet? Are you going to watch the movie?
β€’
Good news: I will start working again soon πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸŽ‰πŸ’ƒπŸ» I'm supposed to start the first week of December πŸ˜ƒ
Do you collect bookish items? I don't necessarily "collect" them, but I do love them! πŸ˜ƒ Pins, bookmarks, tote bags, prints, jewelry, keychains, stickers, candles, socks... everything! 😍 I have many bookish items and here are few of them. {Swipe for a close up} πŸ‘€
β€’
Most of the items are from Uppercase, authors, friends, I bought them or made them 😊 Take a look at the last 2 photos to see my absolute favorite bookish earrings and necklace from Coryographies πŸ’–πŸ“š
β€’
In the last photo, you'll see the hand-painted wood frames my mom made me for my reading corner πŸ™ƒ Now you now why I love crafting... I got it from my mami πŸ˜„
β€’
I will *hopefully* be back on the blog next week πŸ™ŒπŸΌ so get ready for all the book reviews 😬 I just really hope the internet will cooperate with me 🀞🏼 Let's see!
Have you ever had a book in your TBR for months? I have this book since forever and I just can't read it... it's so intimidating! πŸ˜… but interesting πŸ™ƒ
β€’
S. by J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst ✨ A book inside another book. I don't know πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ I think that's the best way to describe it. The book (Ship of Theseus) and two readers (that communicate through margin notes and slip notes by leaving them in the book). The book it's supposed to be in a library, that's why they communicate through the book. Swipe to take a look inside! (video)
β€’
Some people say there's even an order to read this... you have to read it six times! 😳 Yeah, 6 times! Because first, you have to read Ship of Theseus, then the colored margin notes in order of colors (4), and finally, the slip notes. I feel like I won't ever finish this book 😩 Have you read it yet?

In honor of #WorldKindnessDay, I want to give a shoutout to @sydneys_shelves and @storiesandsours for making my day brighter πŸ’• You both know what you did today πŸ˜‰ Thank you!!!
Hi @bookishtexts! My name is Mariely and I'm from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico. This is my first time applying for a rep search πŸ™ŒπŸΌ but I couldn't help it! I mean... I LOVEEEEE bookmarks and hand-lettering (and books, duh!) so I couldn't pass up this opportunity πŸ˜‰ Not so long ago, I had a small business so I know how important it is to get the word out. I would love to help you do that, so every bookish lover can enjoy your bookmarks! Thank you so much for the chance! And good luck to everyone who enters the #bookishtextsrep πŸ“š
#bookstagram #repsearch #bookmark
... and that's why we read, right? πŸ“š Happy Sunday everyone! Remember to use your words wisely, and treat others with the respect and love we all want and deserve. πŸ’–
Love, & you by @chicnerdreads πŸ–€ I'll never get tired of recommending this poetry book! So if you haven't read it yet, add it to your TBR.
β€’
I wanted my first hand-lettered quote to be in Spanish, so I picked one of my favorites from Gretchen πŸ˜‰
β€’
Today I learned a couple of things... hand-lettered quotes are harder than just one word (duh!) πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ, I need to use a ruler πŸ™„, and I need to learn how to keep space between the words πŸ˜… But you know what? I'll keep practicing! πŸ’ͺ🏼
β€’
Any plans for the weekend? I'm not feeling well, so my plan is to curl up in bed and reread this beauty 😍
Hand-lettering πŸ–€ My new hobby! I'm a beginner, so it was a little difficult to do it in canvas... but I think it turned out okay. What do you think? πŸ™ƒ
Some of my all-time favorites! πŸ’• (at least from my *physical* books)
β€’
What do you do when you are in a reading slump? Do you reread one of your favorites? Do you do something else than reading? Because here I am... in the middle of a reading slump and without electricity πŸ™ƒ so yeah, any suggestions? Book recs will be appreciated as well πŸ“š
Here's my #TBR pile for November πŸ“š and maybe December? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
β€’
I know it's a small pile but I've been reading VERY slow during the last few days. I don't know why! πŸ™ƒ With everything that's going on, I think I might just need a break. Btw, I don't have internet yet, so I still don't know when I'll be back on the blog.
β€’
Do you prefer big candles or small ones? As you can see in my photo... 🎢 I like big candles and I cannot lie 🎢
If you could only read 3 books for the rest of your life, which ones would you pick? πŸ“š
β€’
Yes, I know! This is a hard question πŸ€” Right now, these are my top 3 (in no particular order):
β˜€οΈI'll Give You the Sun by @jandy.nelson
🎾Girl Against the Universe by @pstokesbooks
πŸ—£The Hate U Give by @angiethomas 
What about you? Btw, if you haven't read any of these, you should add them to your TBR.

🚨43 days since #HurricaneMaria in #PuertoRico: some people are still without electricity, water, food and/or other essentials. Please, don't forget to #donate/#help if you can. Thank you! πŸ‡΅πŸ‡·β€οΈ Thank you for your prayers and thank you SO much for sending supplies our way πŸ’–
Happy #NationalAuthorsDay to all the authors and writers out there! Thank you for sharing your stories with us πŸ“š I'm celebrating by reading this beauty 😍
β€’
Every Shiny Thing by @cordeliajensen1 and @laurielmorrison ✨ Coming out in April 2018. Thank you so much for the lovely surprise, Cordelia! If you haven't read anything from her, what are you waiting for?! Skyscraping was amazing! And The Way the Light Bends (2018) is close to my heart. Can't wait to tell you all about it on my blog!
