Currently hooked on: Yuri on Ice

[Warning, non-book post coming up.]

 

It's all about men's figure skating, and at this point I'm hoping the writer is going for a story in which Yuri not only learns to be confident in himself as a skater, but also finally realizes he's in love with famous figure skater Victor Nikiforov, his current coach. Like, love-love, not just hero worship or professional admiration. Literally all of Yuri's performances so far (7 episodes) have been great big love letters to Victor.

 

I really wish there were a manga version I could binge-read, but alas, this appears to be an original production.

Sweeney Todd and the String of Pearl
Sweeney Todd and the String of Pearl - Yuri Rasovsky This is ridiculous but so entertaining. A lot of the dialogue is funny. The actually storyline is scary, a barber killing people and a cook selling them in her pies. It’s worth the time.

Yuri - Roxie Rivera
Another top notch awesome book in the series! I really like this one as well,don't let the 3 stars fool you it was really great even it was not my all time favourite,Dimitri has still my heart owned!

The romance between Yuri and Lena was so cute.They sure had chemistry each other that it become more than that near the end.

The action was good.It seemed that every female heroine has probleatic family background but doesn't mean it is the same in every book.This time Lena's cousin caused si many troubles I was amazed how Yuri and Lena found a proper solution.

One of the things I like in the series is the returning back of all the couples from the previous book and how they and the new incoming characters are interacting and involving with each story book.

Extra There is someone coming back from the past someone that it has to do with all out guys horrible past.I can't wait to read more about that in the next books

Signs Preceding the End of the World
Signs Preceding the End of the World - Yuri Herrera,Lisa Dillman

Read from September 07 to 17, 2015

 

Description: Signs Preceding the End of the World is one of the most arresting novels to be published in Spanish in the last ten years. Yuri Herrera does not simply write about the border between Mexico and the United States and those who cross it. He explores the crossings and translations people make in their minds and language as they move from one country to another, especially when there’s no going back.

Traversing this lonely territory is Makina, a young woman who knows only too well how to survive in a violent, macho world. Leaving behind her life in Mexico to search for her brother, she is smuggled into the USA carrying a pair of secret messages – one from her mother and one from the Mexican underworld.


Opening: I'm dead, Makina said to herself when everything lurched: a man with a cane was crossing the street, a dull groan suddenly surged through the asphalt, the man stood still as if waiting for someone to repeat the question and then the earth opened up beneath his feet: it swallowed the man, and with him a car and a dog, all the oxygen around and even the screams of passers-by.

Lessons from a Dead Girl - Jo Knowles

It took me just a couple of hours to finish this book. It is very twisted and dark. Kid abusing sexually another kid. Both females, best friends, nonetheless. Laine was not a very sympathetic character and Leah was just a crazy, screwed-up girl.

The book touches delicate issues such as bullying, sexual harassment, low self-esteem, sexuality, attempt of suicide, drugs, bad parents. So this book is pretty heavy, but it is well written.
