March 2017

March is over. And April is here. I know most of us say this everytime a month goes by but seriously, time has flown by and I'm terrified because my finals start at the end of May and I have been neglecting all Uni stuff for the entire month and I really hope I can catch up on work during April. Coming back from my holidays didn't help if I'm honest. March has been a bit of an in-between month for me. At the end of February, I went to Germany to visit my sister and we both travelled to Copenhagen - which I really really liked - and since coming back to Spain at the beginning of March I haven't had the motivation to sit down and study properly. This whole situation is also to blame for my reading this month as well. Quite a lot considering the previous months but all the time I should've spent studying, I spent reading. 

All in all, I've had a mixed reading month. My two favourite reads were The Year of Living Danishly - a non-fiction book where the author talks about her experience of living in Denmark during one year -  and Nina is Not OK - a coming of age story about an alcoholic 17-year-old girl. I highly recommend reading both of them. My least favourite was A Visit from The Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. It just didn't work for me. And the same thing happened with Otared by Mohammad Rabie. And I now just realised that I forgot to include in the picture Beauty and the Beast. However, it wasn't very memorable and I prefer the Disney version of the tale way more.

My reading plans for April are still on the air. As I said, I will concentrate on my Uni work but I have a few titles that I wanna get to. I'm currently reading The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas and without a doubt will be a favourite of mine. It deals with Black Lives Matter movement and it is a very important and necessary book.
