¡Hola! This is from over a month ago... 🙈 My latest book mail from a special lady. Thank you SO much @ficwishes! You are the best ❤️ Yeah... you are looking at my summer reads! 🤓
They look so pretty together 😍 Happy #WorldBookDay everyone! 📖
Ohhh I love books with deckled pages 😍 Here’s what I got in my @uppercasebox this month:
📖 The Queen’s Rising by Rebecca Ross (signed)
👑 The Queen’s Rising decal
☕️ Book Lovers Coffee Medium Roast
📝 Born With a Reading List notepad (Uppercase exclusive)
🔖 And as always, the Reading Experience bookmark (which I think it’s awesome!) and the note by Lisa.
.
As soon as I opened the package, I could smell that coffee from miles away! ❤️
.
So this is my last box ☹️ at least for a while... yeah, I decided to cancel my subscription but hopefully, I’ll subscribe again in the future. I had Uppercase for 19 months and it was everything I was hoping for and more! 100% recommended. I wrote a review on my blog back in January 2017, in case you want to check it out.
.
Have you tried book subscription boxes?
Guess what?! I finally read my first graphic novel 🙌🏼 Thanks again for the recommendation @punkrockmom 😉 I really enjoyed this!!! As soon as I finished it last night, I put Smile, Drama and The Baby-Sitters Club on hold at the library 💕 Can’t wait to check out the other recs you all gave me 😃
.
What are you currently reading? 📖
Books, ebooks or audiobooks? Which one do you prefer? What are your thoughts on them? 📚 I’m okay with any of them but I prefer physical books.
.
I used to hate audiobooks! And they are still my least favorite... but it’s because sometimes I can’t concentrate on the words 🙃 So I just listen to audiobooks when I’m exercising or when I’m crafting. If I’m cleaning or doing something else, NOPE. I can’t listen to them.
.
At first, I didn’t like ebooks either 🙈 but I’ve learned to love them... because of eARCs! 😅 But also because you can easily carry them around. Althought, for me, it goes the same way with a physical book. I’m always carrying a book! AND, most importanly, ebooks makes borrowing from the library a little easier for me.
.
And physical books? Well, I can mark them up, I can throw them, I can smell them 🤣 No but seriously, I feel more comfortable with physical books. I don’t know why I’m saying this because lately, I’ve been reading a lot of ebooks. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I just like to read, ok?! And that’s the important thing!
.
What about you? 📖📱🎧
I’m #CurrentyReading Wild Embers by Nikita Gill ✨ So powerful! I’m loving it 🖤 What are you currently reading?
.
I got this beautiful wooden bookmark in my last Uppercase box 😍 and guess what? I accidentally broke it a couple of hours after this photo 😭 but I’ll try to fix it!
.
Today I enrolled in aqua aerobics... it was my friend’s idea! We’ll start next week. I recently started exercising with my sister, but we are just walking and running, but this?! I’ve never done anything like this before, so we’ll see. And yeah, I was part of the track and field team in middle school and high school but I don’t have the same resistance anymore 😅 I’M SCARED BUT I’LL DO IT! 💪🏼
I’m always recommending books to my sister and book club friends 📚 Liars, Inc. by Paula Stokes was my latest recommendation. I read it a while ago and it was so good! I’m planning to reread it soon.
.
Tell me your most anticipated book of 2018 ✨ Mine is Hidden Pieces by... guess who?! Paula Stokes! 😄 In case you didn’t know this (I highly doubt it), she’s my favorite author. So yeah, I can’t wait for her new thriller! 🙌🏼
.
Take a look at my favorite bracelet 😍 It was a birthday gift from @chicnerdreads 🖤
.
Reading update: I finished Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda... I LOVE IT SO MUCH 😭❤️ I enjoyed buddy reading it with my friend, Sydney. Can’t wait for the movie!
Any plans for the weekend? I’ll be reading and I will also start drafting some reviews on the blog. 📚👩🏻‍💻
I’m buddy reading Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, with my friend @sydneys_shelves 💜 and I’m loving it so far! Have you read it yet? Are you going to see the movie?
•
Totally unrelated but, I haven’t read any graphic novel yet 🙈 like, ever! And, I don’t know... I would love to read one. So, any recommendation? Which one should I read first?
•
This photo looks so weird... I blame my feet! 👣😂🤷🏻‍♀️
My latest book haul 📚😍 All of them were birthday gifts! Muchas gracias @gustavocortina @chicnerdreads @aquamonroe 💚
•
Have you read any of them? Did you like it? I think I will start with wild embers and then illuminae... it’s time for me to start this series 😄
•
If you follow me on Twitter you may already know this, but I want to share it here as well 🤗 I’m officially enrolled in the American Sign Language basic course 😃 I’m so excited!!! I’ll take the intermediate course next semester and then the advanced 🙌🏼 I’ve been learning ASL on my own for a while now, so I’m glad I’m finally able to take these courses.
Heyyyy 💚 Guess who’s back?! 🙌🏼🎉 After a 1 month break, I’m officially back! I know, I know... I have a lot of catching up to do 😅 and I have SO much to tell you 😃 But first, I’m going to show you what I got on my first @uppercasebox of 2018:
•
📖 A Conspiracy of Stars by @rantingowl (signed)
▪️ Soar into Space bookmark by Vector Engraving
▪️ A Conspiracy of Stars magnet
▪️ Jane Austen Quote Art Print
▪️ Kawaii Typewriter sticker

And as always, it included the Reading Experience bookmark and a note. Btw, thanks for the note, Lisa! 😊 It means a lot all your positive thoughts for us here in PR ❣️ •
So, tell me something! What did I missed?! What are you up to? What are you reading? 😄 I will show you my latest book haul soon 📚 and check out my blog for a review of The Key to Everything by Paula Stokes.
This was one of the Christmas gift for my husband, and it was such a hard secret to keep! 😅 I knew he’d get excited. I mean... even I was excited. Swipe to see the back cover 😍 and don’t get me started with the illustrations inside the book!

Do you have a reading goal for 2018? 📚 I’m such a slow reader! So I don’t really have a specific number of books that I want to read, I’ll just try to read 1-2 books per month (or something like that). I’ll just go with the flow! 😬
