"La noche que Frankenstein leyó el Quijote", de Santiago Posteguillo. Culturilla amena.
La noche en que Frankenstein leyó el Quijote - Santiago Posteguillo

Lejos de la pedantería que suele ser habitual en los profesores, que se creen el ombligo del mundo (otros, yo no), este profesor de Literatura Inglesa nos cuenta historias de otros escritores y otros libros, sin mencionar (casi) su exitosa saga sobre Trajano. Algunas de las historias ya las conocía (por ejemplo, la de la autoría de las obras atribuidas a Shakespeare), pero otras, como el pasado criminal de Anne Perry, que la obra de Kafka se publicó una vez muerto o cómo una niña de 8 años descubrió casi por casualidad a Harry Potter, son de lo más interesantes.

Libro muy bien escrito, interesante de leer, y encima el autor es valenciano. Ya si fuera del Valencia sería la leche.

Another DNF
THIS SIDE OF THE SUN - Blythe Santiago

I hate to DNF books but sometimes reading becomes torture. This appears to be written for a high school level. It babbles on about nothing for so long it was difficult to work out what it was supposed to be about.

Parts of it were completely unrealistic. After an explosion, a man picks her up? What about possible internal injuries?

It was obvious before the first chapter finished exactly how it was going to end, but I didn't get that far. I started feeling nausea at "The thought of this stranger leaving my side sent me into near-panic" (inappropriate use of hyphen aside)

It goes downhill from there.

"His face was full of intense tension"


Yeah. Gave up on this one early on.

Book Review : Saving Raphael Santaigo Cassandra Clare
Saving Raphael Santiago - Cassandra Clare,Sarah Rees Brennan

July 2-6

A Manhattan teen—Raphael Santiago—is missing, and Magnus Bane must track him down before it’s too late. One of ten adventures in The Bane Chronicles.

In 1950s New York City, a distraught mother hires Magnus Bane to find her missing son, Raphael. But even if he can be found, is Raphael beyond saving?

Review : I loved this one Raphael is a very interesting character I loved his exchanges with Magnus . Raphael's mother hires Magnus to find Raphael and Magnus finds him but as a vampire and Magnus takes him and helps him control so he can see his mother I really enjoyed this story .


“How many times have I told you, Magnus? Behave professionaly in a professional setting. Which means no being rude to Nephilim, and also no getting attached to Nephilim."
"I never get attached to Nephilim!" Magnus protested.
Ragnor coughed, and in the midst of the cough said something that sounded like "blerondale."
"Well," said Magnus. "Hardly ever.”

Magnus had often thought of getting a pet, but he had never considered acquiring a sullen teenage vampire. Once Raphael was gone, he thought, he was getting a cat. And he would always throw his cat a birthday party.” 

Oh no, Raphael, please don't leave me," Magnus said in a monotone. "Where would I be without the light of your sweet smile? If you go, I will throw myself upon the ground and weep." hair 
"Will you?" asked Raphael, raising one thin eyebrow. "Because if you do, I will stay and watch the show.”

Oh wait . You think I'm dating Raphael ? Magnus asked . Raphael ? That's ridiculous . That's- That's the most revolting idea I've ever heard . Raphael's voice rang out to the ceilling . Probally people in the the street could hear him . That's a little strong , said Magnus . And frankly , hurtful. And if I did wish to indulge in unnatural persuits- andlet me be clear , I Certainly do not , Raphael continued scornfully , as if I would choose hi, . Him! He dresses like a maniac , acts like a fool , and makes worse jokes thank the man people throw rotten eggs at outside the dew drop every Saturday . Ragnor began to laugh . Better men than you have begged for a change to win all this , Magnus muttered . They have fought duels in my honor . One man fought a duel for my honor , but that was a little embarrassing since it is long gone . Do you know he spends hours in the bathroom sometimes ? Raphael announced mercilessly . H wastes actual magic on his hair . On his hair . I love this kid , Said Ragnor.

The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho



If you asked me to name some of the books which topped my wishlist; "The Alchemist" would be one of them. I have to confess that it's been a year since i bought this book at a book sale and i still couldn't get my hands on it because i didn't want to cheat on the other books i was currently reading!!! And at last, when i did get to read it, Paulo Coelho didn't dissapoint me.


The book was UNLIKE any other book i've ever read. It was not what i expected. It was different. Beautifully different.... At first glance, It's a story of Santiago; a shepherd boy on a quest for treasure at the Egyptian Pyramids. But when you delve in deeper, there's much more to it than any treasure hunt. Santiago encounters various people throughout his journey, each having an impact on his quest. It enlightens the reader about the life lessons he learns in his pursuit for treasure. 

It's a story about magic,courage,wisdom, determination, love ,taking risks , about listening to our hearts, holding onto our dreams and following our destinies. 


As Santiago embarks on a journey of self discovery, we are left with one important question ; do we do what it takes to follow our dreams? 



With its thought provokingly beautiful quotes, it's a book which will inspire and uplift your soul.
