Welcome to A Day In Bookland!




Hello fellow Bookworms!

My name is Noelia. I’m 23 years old and I live in Spain. I’m a Psychology Grad but at the moment I’m studying an English Culture & Literature major. I consider myself quite the Anglophile (a what? You may be wondering… well, an anglophile is basically a fan of English culture. Yep! That’s me). Anyways, I should have studied this one since the beginning instead of Psychology but what would be life without some wrong decisions? Well, the important thing is that I’m studying it now and I’m super happy because I just love it.

I would love someday to work in the publishing world to be surrounded by books 24/7. It would be the perfect job for me.

My dangerous addiction to reading made me go to YouTube to look up for bookish stuff which is making that addiction even worse now that I think about it (Oops!). Reading has been always a part of my life, since I was a little girl and it has got bigger and bigger the older I get. It is true that YouTube is a big thing today but I decided to start a blog for two main reasons: first, I feel very weird talking to a camera and second, I rather write just because I can expose my thoughts in a more organized way instead of ramble about for hours.

Besides reading, music and TV shows are my other passions. Seriously, you don’t wanna know how many TV shows I watch but all of them give me the feels (sometimes I think I’m a masochist LOL). When it comes to music I listen to a lot of different genres but my favourites are rock, indie, gothic rock and instrumental, including soundtracks, have a special spot in my heart. OH! I get the goose bumps hearing Celtic music. It’s pleasure to my ears.

And I think that’s all! Hope you like the blog and stay =)

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
