I apologise for not uploading anything in the blog this week but my stress is off the roofs recently because finals start in two weeks and revising is killing me and everything frustrates me and I don't have the energy to sit down and write a proper blogpost because I feel really guilty. That's why I haven't actually do any blog hopping either. However, I didn't wanna leave the blog unattended for the next month and a half so I'm just gonna write weekend reads posts until my finals are over and my brain is free.

This weekend I'm gonna try and finish both Dreams of Gods and Monsters and Am I Normal Yet? although I might not finish either of those not only because I seriously need to spend hours and hours revising (how people manage that?? need tips to help me concentrate, please!) and also Sense8 season 2 comes out TODAY! and that's a priority. Like, I can't even deal and the trailers look fantastic and my babies and - can you tell I'm obsessed with that show?

You know how every single month I'm like "I need to buy less books" and it never happens? Well, here's the proof. I try my best but internet deals are the devil. Here are the books I aquired in April. My mum gifted me Las cosas que perdimos en el fuego by Mariana Enriquez - which has been translated into English - for El Día del Libro (World Book Day). All books will be link down below as always.

And another month goes by. To be fair, this time it didn't fly around for me; it was quite a slow month in general and I spent half of it reading - I can't even believe I have managed to read all of these books - and half of it studying for University. I'm all caught up with all my courses and I'm ready to start revising for finals which will be at the end of May/beginning of June. I'm still in awe that for once in my life, I've being productive as hell if I say so myself. Hurray! Basically I wrote down all I had to do and I organised it throughout the first three weeks of April. At the same time I told myself I had to read for fun at least 30 minutes every single day in order to avoid being slumpy due to stress. It worked.

Today is THE DAY. Today readers all around the world come together to read. Here in Madrid is very gloomy and it's raining slightly and a bit cold so when the clock turns 2pm I'll have my blanket, a cup of hot chocolate and my pile of books ready to readathon. For the first time, I'll have the house all to myself. My parents and sister are going away for the bank holiday. The reason I'm staying is to study for finals which are in May but I've been quite productive throughout the whole of April and I'm taking today off just because.

It's that time of the year again: The Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon where readers all around the world come together to read for 24 hours. It might sound a bit mad yes, but believe me, it is fun. We all share the stack of books we're planning on reading and then our progress as the hours go by and above all, we cheer on each other to read. Isn't that great? It is for me. I don't have anyone outside my bookish internet corner to get excited about books and reading so you can imagine how happy this event makes me. The readathon takes place this Saturday and for me it starts at 2pm, that might change depending on your time zone - you can check their web to find out your time to start.
