The Fault…

I refuse to tell you what’s going on with my mind and heart, so instead, I am going to tell you something else:

I am terribly invested in The Fault in Our Stars – John Green.  I just love it so desperately.

Just prior to this one, I read Silver Linings Playbook, and though I can totally relate to Pat Peoples and Tiffany for a hundred reasons, it was a bit hard to read, it took me about a week and a half to finish it. However, The Fault in our Stars, wow, it’s not even that intense, but I love it. I started reading it last night and I am really ahead, I had to convince myself to take a break to write this.

And it’s kind of funny, cause I think this is the very first time I am not relating to the main characters, and by this, I mean, I don’t see them in myself. I am not like them at all. But it’s one of those very quotable books that you treasure deep.

That’s not to say the book is fail proof, I’m 60% into it, and I’ve already picked some things that make noise in my head as improbable and such, but still… Suspension of disbelief, I guess.

Anyway, I don’t want to spoil the book to anyone, but if you ever get the chance, read it. Read the hell out of that book (TW: It’s about cancer) and become a John Green fan, that is if you’re not one already.

Now I can hardly wait to read Looking for Alaska, but I have a long list before reaching that one.

Okay? Okay…

P.S. Just so you know, Things are not exactly happy in my life at the moment, I am ok, but trying to not over-think anything… I doubt I’ll tell you, guys, what’s going on, but thanks for the support and stuff. I just need a while out.

EDIT: Ok, I said the book wasn’t as intense as Silver Linings Playbook; well, I just finished and even though I still can’t see myself as one of the characters, it was definitively a very intense book. I had to hold my tears constantly… Read it, please, please, read it and love it as much as I do…

Quickie: Mundane

This week was tragic from the very moment it started, it was really hard to go through it. I don’t know, I am confused and scared.

Anyway, I am not going to bore you guys with my mundane drama, you have plenty of that on other blogs. I am going to entertain you with even more trivial stuff, like:

  • I want to watch Spring Breakers, I’ve been saying online that I feel the movie seems like a baby between Havoc (which is genius, I don’t care if the critics disagree) and Sugar and Spice, with the added bonus that it stars my girls, Selena Gomez and Ashley Benson. 
  • I remembered about the previous, because today we started Spring Vacation. I was feeling suuuuucky as hell, wearing an oversized sweatshirt and sunglasses. Spring Vacation!! Flowers Day!!!
  • 8580970794_e71767fe5d_mSpeaking of Flowers Day, my Spirit Animal (a Friend’s cousin, I call her like that and also “My Patronus”) gave me a Bonsai tree for me to nurture and care for. I am terrible with plants, I can barely keep my two cats alive, but, but, but, I am making an effort.
  • I found out my boss is also into Pretty Little Liars. That’s a highlight in the week. Seriously.
  • I got to meet John Blum, a really talented jazz player, and also got to interview him.
  • I’ve been listening to Karuki Zamen Kuri no Hana NON STOP.
  • For the first time ever, I am cooking Brown rice, it took me forever to discover it takes longer for it to cook than regular rice. I am still waiting, and I’ve been hungry for hours.
  • I sold my iPad, I am going to get another baby very soon. I may miss a bit of my reading, but it’s ok, I have 2 weeks to get back on track.
  • Oh, and in case you’re wondering, I LOVED DIZZIE DAY, and I was kind of appalled by PLL’s Season finale. I may catch up with the books during the Spring Vacation. I don’t know…

Ok, enough beating around the bush, I am not feeling as perky as I normally do, good night.

Just a quick update

To let you know I am utterly upset by the things that are happening in the Bennet universe.

I don’t mean upset in an “OMG, wtf are the writers doing?” but in an “OMG, I care too much about these fictional characters that I hate what they’re going through”, the writers are actually doing a pretty amazing work with the series, I can’t wait for the next episodes, I can’t even believe we have to wait until monday to find out what’s happening.

So yeah, if you hadn’t seen the latest webisode of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, just go and watch it right now, cause you’re missing BIG.

In other news, I hadn’t finished reading the 50 shades trilogy. I have so much to say, but have you been following me KouReads tread on twitter? You can infer from it, I guess.

Also, this week was hectic on school, I finally enrolled after a hell of a week. I had to drive back and forth for 3 consecutive days from the city my mom lives at, to get a hold of some documents, and have some meetings with people at my school. But it’s finally done, and I am (sort of) free.

I don’t know what else to say.. I am waiting for the boy to arrive, it’s getting a bit late and he’s not here yet, so I am a bit worried. I guess I am gonna go read a bit in the meantime.

Just so you guys know…

50-shades-of-grey-pinterest

I am reading the 50 Shades of Whatevs trilogy cause I’ve read a good amount of critiques on it, and just as I did with the Twilight Saga, I wanted to know what all the fuss was about. I hadn’t even finished the 1st. book and I already have so much to say about it. So freaking much.

So, yeah, be ready, cause All the time I had not been posting here, I’ve spent reading. If you want to wait for my final critique, wait for it here, but if you want to read the (not so very common) live-tweeting, follow me on twitter, I am using #KouReads (though some of my previous posts are not under it, I will use it from now on).

See you later, kids!

1984

I just have to tell you guys that about 6 hours ago I finished reading 1984 and I am feeling hopeless and vulnerable…

Sucks, but I guess that makes it a great book.

I think I might need to detox from that universe and then go on and read something a little happier, nothing dystopic for me right now… Or nothing sad for that matter.

I have a couple of novelty young-adult stories on my list, I might get to them next, just so I can regain faith in humanity.

I’m not going to spoil the book, but really guys, it’s a pretty good story and up until the last moments I hoped for specific things to happen, but not having my expectations fulfilled, both make me feel sad and make me realize it couldn’t have happened any other way… I really hope that’s not spoiling anything if you’re planning on reading it. I am trying to be as vague as possible.

Also, I very much need to talk to my boyfriend…

Love List for the Ponicorn Soul

Love-list-negro

 

First one of the year! I’ve been kind of on a good mood lately, and some good and happy things have been going on, so I figured I would share a short list with you guys.

8340116899_0772db7ff5

  • My boyfriend visiting last week. We actually didn’t do anything but driving around and talking, but it was pretty good, I got to show him all the places I usually go to in the city. I loved the day.
  • Starting on my new job. I am not legally allowed to share specific details on my job online, but I can tell you I’ve been having some training and I feel a little more confident I can do it well. I sometimes forget how much I love doing what I do.
  • Pretty Little Liars coming back tomorrow. I am not sure what to expect, there have been hints and details dropped by the cast and producers, but still, I’m anxious to find out!
  • #PemberleyDay. As a good Austenite I was eagerly expecting this day. I can only say, Gigi is super cute and the cast gets even more perfect day by day. I think the only character missing in action is Lady Catherine, I really want them to show her, cause, seriously, how can they have the confrontation scene without showing her? Unless… mmmm…
  • Mate nail polish. It took me forever to finally get it, but now that I do, I don’t want to wear anything else.

275

  • If you’re my close friend, there’s one thing you surely know about me: I love Ben-Hur. My mom gave me this set up here, it’ the 50th. anniversary edition and it includes a book of pictures and Charlton Heston’s journal while portraying the character. I just love it that much!
  • Reading a book my boyfriend recommended. I have so much to talk to him about it.
  • Keeping my 52/52/365 projects so far. Specially the 365 pictures, cause that tends to be the one that dies first, the other I can always catch on, but not that one, so yey for me!!

Little Things?

  • Washing 90% of the laundry I brought from home.
  • Being able to wear skirts again (it has been very cold)
  • Developing a small routine before going to bed.
  • The upcoming trip to Uruapan.
  • Having long talks with my best friend Karla.
  • Planning a little thing I want to accomplish by the end of the year
  • Organizing the revamp of ParteFORMA.
  • Coming back to Twitter.
  • Having nice co-workers.
  • Finding a Feminist Group in my city.

There’s just so much going on, but most of it is happy. I feel ok, and better… And it’s kind of late, so I am going to bed.

Goodnight!

On posting and stuff…

Admittedly, November wasn’t really the nicest month for me, lots of things happened, among some of those, one of my cats broke his hip, I had some of the most difficult conversations I’d ever had, and well… other things… Things have been going better for the last half of it, but at times, I still have to crouch down and just breath heavily until I feel at ease again.

But December is here, and I think it’s fair for me to come out of my shell and write again…

This December I have some things planned. Some… Here’s a briefing:

  • I am 5 books away from my 30 books for 2012 goal. Next year I am planing a more ambitious goal of 52 books, so we’ll see.
  • I am going to send Xmas letters. I was originally planning on sending personalized postcards, but seriously guys, November was rough on me, so I didn’t really felt any sort of inspiration to design them, so it’s gonna be next year! Still, this year you’ll get letters from this gal up here (Macky, I know you’ll read this, so, please!!! could you send me your postal address through and E-mail? please!!!!)
  • I am looking for a gift for my mother in law. I have an idea, but I am not sure, I’ll let you know… I need to run it by my boyfriend first… She is always the nicest, and has sent me a couple of gifts already, so I really want to send her something special.
  • On a similar note, I am going to give my boyfriend a gift. I don’t normally give him any gifts on xmas, cause… I don’t know… we just don’t do that, but this year I feel like I’d like to start doing that… I won’t say what it’ll be here, in case he reads this (He does read my blog, so yeah…) but you’ll know when he finds out…
  • I want to print pictures of my friends, my boyfriend and I… Oh, and the cats…
  • I want to start running again… I have a lot to think about… and I really need some time to introspect…
  • There’s this magazine I buy pretty much every month, so I decided I would finally take advantage of the xmas sales and finally suscribe.

That’s pretty much it. I still have so much to do, but still.. I am excited…

But the important thing right here is that I am back, I am going to be posting again, and (As I said at the very beginning) since the last half of November was actually decent, and plenty of things happened, I have so much to tell… so, be ready for a Love List for the Ponicorn Soul coming to you very soon (Gosh, it’s been so long since I last did one of those).

Love,
