“Dónde se queman libros, se acaba quemando también a personas” – Jacinto Rey, Dile a Marie que la quiero

Resumen: Leído de Enero 23, 2018 a Enero 27, 2018.

*English version will come soon.*

Es una historia que nos lleva por un viaje de recuerdos melancólicos, que nos deja tocar las cicatrices de la guerra, y que a su vez nos muestra muy claro los múltiples y amargos demonios de la existencia humana. En una secuencia de eventos desafortunados, Rey nos deja experimentar vida a vida lo que fue sufrir la guerra de primera mano. – Inkish Kingdoms

La concatenación de las malas decisiones junto con peor suerte hace que la novela de Rey sea emocionalmente devastadoras pera sus lectores. La violación de derechos y de libertades es abrumante, pero la falta de cuidado y la negación de dejar atrás creencias, religión y costumbres solo ayudaban a hundir más a los personajes de la novela.

Sin embargo, una pregunta aparece: ¿Por qué tengo que rendirme o despojarme de quién soy para sobrevivir? La segunda guerra mundial se trató de eso, de doblegar la moral, de obligar la rendición del ser y la identidad. Es abominable ver como el aferrarse a ser quien uno es merecía la muerte. La historia de esta novela fue corta pero cargada de emociones y esperanzas. Honestamente, más larga y me hubiera sentado a meditar si ya no habían sido suficiente con las atrocidades que leí, pero en realidad no lo fueron. Lo más triste de todo es ver como una niña perdió parte de su inocencia e infancia. Esta guerra que la hizo pasar cosas que nadie debió de haber pasado. Una niña que pasó y sufrió tanto, pero que aún así tiene energía para vivir. Una moraleja de que los niños son y serán el futuro.

La historia me marco profundamente, pero la historia más hermosa que me hizo llorar fue la que Mathilde le contó a Paul y que fue “Dile a Marie que la quiero”.

Por esto y muchas otras cosas más, el reino le ha dado:

5 coronas

Parece que el reino estaba encantado pero devastado emocionalmente, pero el reino se ha manifestado:

“There is always a way out for those clever enough to find it.” ― Rick Riordan, The Titan’s Curse

Tech Summary: Read from January 11, 2018, to January 14, 2018.

Okay, I am obsessed with Percy’s adventures. I love the books that have like silly character’s that make you laugh out in public when you are reading on the bus… #guilty, and it has been so long since that happened to me until this book.

The highlight or the most memorable part of this book was Apollo and his “immaturity”. Literally, he has become my favorite God so far! I laughed so bad with the first part of the book and the car ride. You have no idea! Besides that, there is not much to talk about the book. The story keeps moving forward and the characters keep coming and going, some of them change as they grow old and some others are just left behind… literally. I see the changes on the characters from those naive kids that new everything was a trap but still fall, but this time, it has more like a mature kind of tone since they still complete the mission knowing the risks but not falling into obvious traps.

What I like about these books are the prophecies, they keep changing and they keep being such a puzzle and a riddle. I for some reason new what was it about or how it will all end up. I guess we all knew, but it is really nice to be right… XD ***maybe a spoiler*** and still I wouldn’t expect something really sad from these books… at least not on the first ones… I am afraid about the fourth one…***end of potential spoiler***

I still hold all that I have mentioned so far of the previous books and nothing has changed on that (I, II). I keep devouring the books, and I am already thinking about the other 100 sagas of Riordan about Percy and other heroes…

So, the kingdom has given this book:

4 coronas

It seems that your majesty is pleased and the knights have spoken!

Get To Know Me Tag

I am all for the tags! and I really like this one because it is exactly what I want to do, to get to know better my blogger pals and also for you to know me a little bit more! I don’t think I am as interesting as a geode XD but I hope you like my answers XD

I know that Becandbones struggle a little bit, and just by looking at the questions… I can tell you that I will be sweating from the strain to get it done XD Check out her answers, and I hope you like them! If you don’t follow here, you better do! HERE


  • FAVORITE COLOR AND DO YOU HAVE A BOOK IN THAT COLOR?

Okay, so right now… my favorite color is “cotton candy” pink… and no… T_T I don’t have any book in that color :/ not even regular pink… if you know one, let me know! XD or even gold rose… but still no books

  • DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN 3 BOOK CHARACTERS

Okay, so here it goes nothing:

Toby Elliot from The Beginning of Everything. Why him? Well, he is super funny, honest, loyal, friendly, and quite intelligent… From the book, I think he is the mega comic relief! and I think I am like that.. ❤
Milo from The Biggest Scoop. Why him? Well, he makes a lot of faces when he is troubled. He is so clueless with this guy that liked him and the other way around. He is so into making his club successful (my blog), “professional” (my job), and so looking for his own interest… XD (sorry)

Meursault from The Stranger. Why? Not for the killing part… no no… but mainly for his individualism… so sorry but that is true. I saw a lot of me in the things that he said or what he thought about life.

  • HYPED BOOKS YAY OR NAY? IF YAY, WHAT WAS THE MOST HYPED BOOK YOU EVER READ? IF NAY, WHAT WAS THE MOST HYPED BOOK YOU DECIDED NOT TO READ?

Nay! There are so many, haha but the main one I think is: The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. I don’t know… the title of the book seems boring and shallow. The guy on the cover does not help with that idea. For some reason, I think the book is going to be all about that. I have seen everybody reading this book but I am just going to walk away 🙂

  • RECOMMEND ONE BOOK PER SEASON. SPRING. SUMMER. FALL. WINTER.

Spring:

Bridge to Terabithia this one because all start somewhere. It is more spring in the soul that sadness and sterile land. This title guides the reader towards acceptance and embracing themselves.

Summer:

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe I mean it is SUMMER! there is no summer as magical as the one Ari and Dante had! I am sorry, this one is by far one of my very favorite books!

Fall:

Everyone Brave is Forgiven because my heart felt out of my chest when I was reading it. It was all so nice and good, for what “good” means during the war, but then all goes down to hell… and s/he is gone… Really good book!

Winter:

I think it will be more like a novella. Brokeback Mountain is really good an so sad! Winter has brought them destruction, isolation, and sadness, and because winter was their only ally in that brutal society they lived in.

  • NAME ONE BOOK THAT WRECKED YOU EMOTIONAL

Dile a Marie que la quiero. I am not sure if there is an English version of the book but this one has been so hard on me. Every time you are sure she will make it, another plague falls. Then you overcome that one and then another one comes. It is one blow after another.

  • WHAT BOOK WOULD YOU RECOMMEND WITH TEA AND COOKIES?

Cursed Queens/Reinas Malditas because we are so bilingual… (jk) We read this one in Spanish as well! It is so interesting! You learn about the monarchy, the queens, their lives, from France, Germany, UK… and let’s be truthful they loved their tea! (by @santi9393)

  • WHAT IS YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE BOOK?

The Best of Me by Nicolas Sparks because he is a romantic cliche. It is not a book that adds anything to the world of literature, but it is just a regular book that enormously catches your breath and mine. (by @santi9393)

  • FAVORITE DESSERT AND A BOOK THAT REMINDS YOU OF THAT

Oh! This one is so hard! But I love caramel apples! and there is no other book with the imagery, flavors, and tastes than the Night Circus! and they do have caramel popcorn and caramel apples!

  • ARE YOU A PROCRASTINATOR? WHAT BOOK HAVE YOU BEEN PROCRASTINATING READING?

Yes, I am a procrastinator… but not all the time, and I procrastinate looking for books… haha but the on that I have been procrastinating is The Two Towers T_T that book does not move… is so slow…

“Well, actually it carried Cadmus. Europa fell off and died along the way, but that’s not important.’ It was probably important to her.” ― Rick Riordan, The Sea of Monsters

Tech Summary: Read from January 8, 2018, to January 11, 2018.

Okay… So we are in the second book… Fast isn’t it? Not really… They are super easy to read and I am not complaining!

I said in the last review (The Lightning Thief) something about Percy’s naiveness, right? Well, the thing is that I find kind of silly the fact that the characters/heroes are so intuitive and they see that some things are wrong and they know it’s a trap and they still go for it… I get it… They are all dauntless and daredevils and heroes! But it is still xD it is like walking on the street and then a guy on a ban offers you Reese’s, but what can happened, right? So either that is part of the morale of the books “don’t trust strangers” or “go for it, you will survive at the end”… I go for the first one… Please, you all go for the first one.

Something that almost made me throw the book through my window was The Graeae, the three grey witches or sisters. For a second I thought were the same as the Moirai, and I saw a huge flaw in the story from book one… But they are similar but not the same.

Again… The movies are an aberration… *End of comment*

I think we are still too early to see any improvement in Percy’s personality towards maturity… But only one year has passed… You can, however, see the difference in the relationship with Annabeth! They are growing together, and for the ending of book 2, I predict that The First have great adventures full of dangers for our protagonist.

The direct mentions of real mythology and characters are still mesmerizing! Tyson’s character is great and adds a lot to the family importance theme. Hubris is so common in heroes, and I like the twist if not being the only fatal flaw. I see some huge fillers such as Tantalus and the other heroes from the Hermes cabin.

*Quick spoiler*

(I don’t get how Hermes can interfere with Percy’s quests… Aren’t they not supposed to get involved or help directly? Hmm, I get Ares… But Hermes… Maybe it was because he was giving a quest?)

*End of spoiler*

So, the kingdom has given this book:

“Find your peace, find your joy, find your book, and never let go”.

“No comenzamos como polvo y no terminamos como polvo. Somos más que polvo” ― David Levithan, Dos Chicos Besandose

Go here if you want to read the English Version: Two Boys Kissing


Uno está constantemente leyendo, y sigue leyendo y quiere leer más y más rápido. Pero, ¿por qué hacemos eso? ¿Cuál es el propósito? O ¿Qué propósito le damos a nuestro constante y obsesivo antojo por los libros? Honestamente creo que debe ser más que solo entretenernos en esas 2 horas de viaja a casa, más que pelear el insomnio que nos ataca de vez en cuando, más que nuestras obligaciones como trabajadores o estudiantes y más que solo ser parte de la moda de acumular libros y ganar “likes” en Instagram.

Para esta reseña, quiero ser lo más “racional” y objetivo posible, pero para leer este libro hay que tener compasión, simpatía, respeto y una mente abierta al entendimiento de cómo otras personas viven sus vidas. Me refiero a dejar atrás todos los prejuicios, el fanatismo, las normas heteronormativas, la moral patriarcal y las “reglas” intrínsecas en nuestra mente y más que todo dejar atrás la idea de que solo yo tengo la razón y los demás están mal. Este libro expone en una manera creativa eventos no ficticios para muchas personas, la vida y experiencias de miles de seres humanos… seres humanos que son y han sido discriminados, víctimas de violencia de género, que son condenados constantemente por otros humanos que predican amor con una mano, pero con la otra sostienen un cuchillo – hablo de una manera simbólica pero últimamente este cuchillo o machete es real.

Dejando todos esos prejuicios y aferrándonos a la simpatía y al respeto podemos leer este libro viendo a los personajes como lo que son: seres humanos. Humanos que luchan por formar su identidad y que luchan no para “calzar” en un sistema social que margina a todo y a todos lo que no compartan sus ideales, y que propone acabar con este grupo como si fueran un animal enfermo, sino que luchan por ser respetados como los humanos que son. Todos estos problemas y miedos son compartidos por los personajes que le dan forma a esta historia.

Claramente vivimos en una sociedad que no incluye la diversidad, pero si usted “calza” no va a poder ver esto tan claro como todos los demás. David Levithan en su libro ayuda a todas las personas externas a este grupo de personas a ver superficialmente la lucha y las dificultades a las que la mayoría de la población diversa tiene que soportar y manejar con o sin ayuda. El tema de la diversidad de género suele ser un tema inexplorado para algunas personas. Algunas personas pueden encontrar el concepto de transgenero difícil de entender porque viven con privilegios o hasta con suerte de que su identidad se acople a su cuerpo. Levithan nos da un pequeño vistazo sobre qué es ser una persona transgenero y el acoso a la que son sometidas diariamente.

Acoso es una palabra que todo hombre y mujer dentro de la comunidad LGBTQ+ o fuera de ella entiende. Ignorancia es el único obstáculo para poder celebrar lo que hace a una sociedad más fuerte, la ignorancia hace imposible celebrar la diversidad ya sea de género, sexual o hasta “étnica”. Levithan retrata esta ignorancia con la reacción animal de los espectadores, de los padres de las personas diversas, de sus colegas y compañeros.

El famoso y a veces doloroso proceso de “salir del closet” a la que solo las personas homosexuales se ven obligadas a experimentar se ve explícitamente en el libro. Doloroso por el temor a ser rechazados no solo por la sociedad sino por familiares. Este rechazo que se da por la ignorancia y la incapacidad de poder lidiar con la diversidad. Este rechazo es el culpable de muchos suicidios, suicidios que Levithan nos expone en su libro. Esto pasa cuando la persona pierde la perspectiva, el sentido, la razón, el propósito, cuando la vida pierde su norte, y cuando la tristeza y la decepción del rechazo por parte de la familia ahoga.

Además de los temas mencionados anteriormente, David Levithan le presenta al lector una narración fuera de este mundo. Él narrador o, mejor dicho, los narradores son los tíos, hermanos y amigos que nos ven desde lo lejos. Estos pioneros que caminaron por primera vez el trillo que muchos andamos hoy en día, los peregrinos y víctimas de la pandemia de VIH. Este narrador que apela a las emociones desde lo más lejano.

“Dos Chicos Besándose” ayuda a sacar de la ignorancia a muchas personas y ayuda a entender un poco más a las personas diversas. Enseña un lado de la comunidad que no todas las personas están consientes de. Ser parte de esta comunidad es más que ir de bar en bar, el alcohol, las drogas, de aventuras de una noche y este libro expone ese lado iluminado de la luna (porque el oscuro ya lo vemos en las noches de fin de semana). Este libro solo nos muestra como otros seres humanos están tratando de vivir sus vidas como el resto de la población. Honestamente, creo que este libro apela a las emociones a través de dulces y simples personajes que demuestran su humanidad y que son capaces de reír, sufrir, llorar y sentir felicidad como el resto de la humanidad.

“It’s funny how humans can wrap their mind around things and fit them into their version of reality.” ― Rick Riordan, The Lightning Thief

Tech Summary: Read from January 2, 2018, to January 7, 2018.

Okay, so a few years ago I gave it a try and I hate it. Then I watched the movie and was not impressed at all… (Who would? It is terrible)… Then I saw this version, that one that pretty much everyone has xD, and I bought the box on sale… I had to give it a chance and a friend already told me they were good! Or that it keeps getting better!

I am so in love with this book’s accuracy in regards mythology! I know a bit, not a lot but a fair “amount”, and I have said this in Goodreads ( friend me if you haven’t xD) it is so good! Like I totally remember “facts” that I knew but didn’t remember as good. I am also playing God of War (1, 2, and 3) haha so I am on a myth rush! Which I love!

Percy is quite nice as a character. It is the stereotypical character: 12, hero complex… For obvious reasons, rogue, authority issues, but still super attached to his mother, father, super emotional and sentimental ❤ Annabeth, which I called her Anabelle because I scan her name not quite actually reading it xD, it is the typical know it all, smart, bad ass, female character that goes not exactly saving the main guy but more like slapping his face when he doesn’t know his shxt…

This title is totally meant to sell. All kids will love it! Myth, empowerment and will also give the lessons of friendship, family, bravery, and never giving up. It is quite interesting to see how even the “kid” part is still there present in their naiveness, which I will mention in the Sea of Monsters review xD

Besides that, I must tell any haters that this genre is for kids, it is young adult, fantasy so it is obvious that for this audience the main hero is a teenager that will save the world because we all wanted to at some point. So don’t be like ” it is impossible for a kid to do this, like fighting against the main boss” or “it is so immature” … Like bye…

So, the kingdom has given this book:

5 coronas

“What he feared the most was that all this hiding had made it impossible for him to ever be found again.” ― John Corey Whaley, Highly Illogical Behavior

Highly Illogical Behavior is sitting one morning through the afternoon to read the whole book because you couldn’t put it down. Grab it tight because here comes the terrifying adventure that John has marvelously crafted for us. – Inkish Kingdoms

Tech Summary: Read from December 30, 2017, to January 1, 2018.

I said it in Goodreads, there is a reason why John Corey Whaley is in my top 3 of favorite authors. So far, I have read them all and I just keep loving them all! Highly Illogical Behavior is such a great title and I love the fact that it deals with agoraphobia and the story goes around that mainly. It is not an LGBTQ+ book that goes around as that is the main topic because I don’t know… being gay is not the main topic of our lives… or at least not for all of us… moving on!

We need to understand what agoraphobia means, and I will tell you, Whaley totally accomplished to explain what it is, and let me tell you, you just learn something new! Look:

Agoraphobia is a type of anxiety disorder in which you fear and avoid places or situations that might cause you to panic and make you feel trapped, helpless or embarrassed.

 Most people who have agoraphobia develop it after having one or more panic attacks. People with agoraphobia often have a hard time feeling safe in any public place, especially where crowds gather. The fear can be so overwhelming that you may feel unable to leave your home.
Some people have a panic disorder in addition to agoraphobia. Panic disorder is a type of anxiety disorder in which you experience sudden attacks of extreme fear that reach a peak within a few minutes and trigger intense physical symptoms (panic attacks). You might think that you’re totally losing control, having a heart attack or even dying.
(Agoraphobia information taken from Mayo Clinic website)

Now, you have read that, you will read the book and you will see how perfect and accurate Whaley’s portrayal of this horrible situation is and how he takes a lot of pressure of the sickness through comic relief!

I am not gonna give you a summary of the book because there is why we have Goodreads, so at the bottom, you can check that up!

The book hooked me real bad which is a good thing. I read it so fast and I laughed so much and I even “aww” at some parts. I read people hating one of the characters… Lisa? but I am not sure if I dislike her. I cannot say that she is my favorite character ever but even though she had evil intentions she ends up being honest, real, and a friend. I related to the book because I think we all need to have friends that will relate 90% or more to what we do, so everything is nice, smooth, easy, and fun. I think Solomon, the main character, was lost due to obvious reasons, and Clark was just the perfect addition to the recluse, the ambitious woman, which is the chill kind of dude that is still figuring out where his life is going.

The book is quite simple and is a coming of age kind of book, YA and all that, so you have an idea of the kind of book. What makes it more valuable and lovely to read is the style and the characters that Whaley creates. That I can rescue more about his books are his characters. They are hilarious, original, and it is impossible not to laugh. Something I really like in general is when the parental figures are friends and behave as friends. I think that should be the rule and, again, I can relate totally to that. Parents should be a nagging force, a business couple that works only and forgets about their children, or so old school that diversity scares them to death.

So, the kingdom has given this book:

5 coronas

“Find your peace, find your joy, find your book, and never let go”.

“Supongo que yo era un misterio hasta para mi mismo” – Benjamin Alire Sáenz, Aristóteles y Dante descubren los secretos del universo

Debo comenzar por decir que no puedo superar la oleada de emociones que sentí al leer este libro. Este es el tipo de libro que le roba a uno el aliento y la concentración… ¡Cuando uno empieza a leer este libro, no existen muchas más cosa por hacer, uno únicamente quiere seguir leyendo! Me enamoré tremendamente de los personajes, y hasta cierto punto me sentí tan identificado con ellos y sus luchas que más de una vez abracé el libro contra mi pecho.

Les voy a ser honesto, este libro realmente reforzó mi diversidad como persona y me hizo llorar con las últimas páginas que leí. Pero no se asusten, no lloré por lo feo o triste del final, sino porque mi corazón no podía soportar la felicidad que sentí con estas páginas ni la cantidad de miel que goteaban del libro.

Los arquetipos en el libro son fáciles de identificar y de analizar. El desierto, la guerra, la lluvia, el verano, el trueno y las tormentas. La soledad, la lucha interna y la constante pelea dentro de uno mismo. La búsqueda constante de expiar el dolor y el alma, la búsqueda por algo que los hiciera sentirse mejor consigo mismos, la búsqueda de amor y el presagio de una reveladora verdad. Los temas que se tratan en este libro van más allá de la vida escolar y cuál carrera escoger, ya que aborda la definición de la identidad sexual, la búsqueda del amor diverso, y la búsqueda del sentido a la vida en general.

Algo importante de recalcar de este libro es la forma como el autor refuerza la importancia de la familia en la vida de una persona. Esta lectura se caracteriza por su procedencia latina, en una realidad en la cual los padres no son los enemigos o villanos de la historia de los adolescentes, sino son aliados. Es hermoso ver como el autor crea personajes que apoyan a sus hijos con sus decisiones de vida y en la creación de su identidad. Los adultos son muy diferentes a lo acostumbrado a ver en libros. Ya que los padres o adultos en este libro son “inmaduros” y felices, mientas que otros son considerados como maduros, psicológicamente dañados, vulnerables, humanos comprensivos y no el típico adulto que no entiende a sus hijos e hijas.

A través de este libro, se ve cómo la verdadera experiencia humana enseña que el amor puede ser encontrado de la manera más increíble e inocente que hay, como nuestras acciones vienen de lo más profundo de nuestro ser, como el verano al igual que la temporada lluviosa pueden darnos las aventuras más dulces y honestas en nuestros universos.

Hay un secreto que debemos de descubrir y es el amor. El verdadero y puro amor, y este libro es el perfecto ejemplo de la vida que muchas personas están buscando incansablemente.
