What I've Been Reading Lately // Qué Estuve Leyendo Últimamente

Hi everybody! How are you doing?

To be honest I only have few things to be grateful for during lockdown.. and one of them is falling in love with reading again. So far this year I´ve read 39 books, plays and essays. Of course, I won't be boring you reviewing all of them, so I chose my favourite 5:

Hola a todos! ¿Cómo están?

Tengo que empezar este post siendo honesta y admitiendo que solo estoy agradecida por un par de cosas durante esta cuarentena.. y una de ellas es que me volví a enamorar de leer. Hasta hoy leí 39 libros, obras de teatro, y ensayos. Obviamente, no los voy a aburrir haciendo una reseña de cada uno de ellos, así que elegí los 5 que más me gustaron:

  1. The Grapes of Wrath - John Steinbeck:

My biggest problem with Steinbeck is that I can’t be objective. Never. I just love all that I read from him. With this book, Steinbeck won the Pulitzer Prize. The novel is based on the time of the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s and tells the story of one Oklahoma farm family, the Joads—driven from their homestead and forced to travel west to the promised land of California.

Out of their trials and their repeated collisions against the hard realities of an America divided into Haves and Have-Nots evolves a drama that is intensely human yet majestic in its scale and moral vision, elemental yet plainspoken, tragic but ultimately stirring in its human dignity.

A portrait of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless, of one man’s fierce reaction to injustice, and of one woman’s stoical strength, the novel captures the horrors of the Great Depression and probes into the very nature of equality and justice in America.

Mi mayor problema con Steinbeck es que no puedo ser objetiva. Nunca. Todo lo que leo de él me encanta. El análisis y la critica que hace al sistema estadounidense post la depresión del 29' y el Dust Bowl. Además, este libro le valió el Premio Pulitzer.  

Forzados por la sequía y el acoso de los bancos, los Joad, una familia de granjeros de la Oklahoma rural y empobrecida de los años treinta, emprenden un atribulado éxodo a lo largo de la carretera 66 con la intención de buscar trabajo y una vida digna en California.

Atrás dejan campos asolados por las tormentas de polvo, pero en el camino encuentran penuria, hambre y hostilidad en los pueblos que visitan. Aún así, ni las advertencias de quienes regresan, pobres y desengañados, ni la muerte bastan para que dejen de intentarlo. Y, en su afán de supervivencia, conservan la entereza y la dignidad frente a la miseria moral de quienes se aprovechan de la miseria real.

  1. Mouthful of Forevers - Clementine von Radics:

Titled after the poem that burned up on Tumblr and has inspired wedding vows, paintings, songs, YouTube videos, and even tattoos among its fans, Mouthful of Forevers brings the first substantial collection of this gifted young poet’s work to the public.

Clementine von Radics writes of love, loss, and the uncertainties and beauties of life with a ravishing poetic voice and piercing bravura that speak directly not only to the sensibility of her generation, but to anyone who has ever been young.

Titulado por el poema que fue furor en Tumblr y ha inspirado desde votos matrimoniales, pinturas, canciones, videos de YouTube, y, hasta tatuajes, Mouthful of Forevers presenta al público la primera colección sustancial de la obra de este joven poeta talentoso.

Clementine von Radics escribe sobre el amor, la pérdida y las incertidumbres y bellezas de la vida con una voz poética deslumbrante y una valentía que habla directamente no solo de la sensibilidad de su generación, sino de cualquiera que haya sido joven.

  1. Three Blind Mice -  Agatha Christie:

This is a short story about the residents of a guest house who find themselves trapped with a murderer when there’s a huge snowden. Nothing to add. Christie's prose has a way of catching you and making you want to devour every single page.

Este es un cuento sobre los residentes de un hotel que, cuando llega una gran nevada y no pueden salir, se encuentran atrapados con un asesino. Nada que agregar. La prosa de Christie tiene una forma de atraparte y hacer que quieras devorarte cada página.

  1. Elephant and Other Stories - Raymond Carver:

These seven stories were the last that Carver wrote. Among them is Errand in which he imagines the death of Chekhov, a writer Carver hugely admired and to whose work his own was often compared.

Estos siete magníficos relatos son los últimos que Carver escribió. Entre ellos se encuentra el relato que da título al volumen, donde reconstruye imaginariamente los últimos días de Chéjov, uno de los escritores que más admiraba.

Carver retoma sus temas de siempre: las tribulaciones de la América pobre, los problemas familiares y matrimoniales, la soledad de seres anónimos que consumen existencias grises y sobrellevan como pueden la vida. En Tres rosas amarillas su prosa es transparente, ajena a todo sentimentalismo y precisa.

  1. Animal Farm - George Orwell:

It took me some years, but I finally read Animal Farm. I’ve only read 1984 by Orwell and I truly loved it, so I had high expectations for this one. And they were fulfill.

A farm is taken over by its overworked, mistreated animals. With flaming idealism and stirring slogans, they set out to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality. Thus the stage is set for one of the most telling satiric fables ever penned –a razor-edged fairy tale for grown-ups that records the evolution from revolution against tyranny to a totalitarianism just as terrible.

When Animal Farm was first published, Stalinist Russia was seen as its target. Today it is devastatingly clear that wherever and whenever freedom is attacked, under whatever banner, the cutting clarity and savage comedy of George Orwell’s masterpiece have a meaning and message still ferociously fresh.

Me tomó algunos años, pero finalmente leí Animal Farm. El único libro de Orwell que había leído era 1984 y me encantó, así que tenía muchas expectativas para este. Y se cumplieron.

Una granja es ocupada por sus animales maltratados y explotados. Con un idealismo ardiente y consignas conmovedoras, se propusieron crear un paraíso de progreso, justicia e igualdad. Por lo tanto, el escenario está preparado para una de las fábulas satíricas más reveladoras jamás escritas: un cuento de hadas afilado para adultos que registra la evolución de la revolución contra la tiranía a un totalitarismo igual de terrible.

Cuando Animal Farm se publicó por primera vez, la Rusia estalinista fue vista como su objetivo. Hoy está claro que donde sea y cuando sea que se ataque la libertad, bajo cualquier estandarte, la claridad y la comedia salvaje de la obra maestra de George Orwell tienen un significado y un mensaje todavía ferozmente reales.

I hope that some of these titles have caught your attention (if you didn't know them) and decided to give them a try! You won’t regret it.

Espero que algunos de estos títulos les hayan llamado la atención (si no los conocían) y decidan darles una oportunidad! No se van a arrepentir.

Finding The Right Item At Lover Beauty



Hi everybody! hope you're doing well. Today I'm going to be writing about Lover-Beauty, which is a famous professional manufacturer and supplier of women's clothing. The company offers Lingerie Wholesale and Lingerie Dropship with the leading sexiest designs. 

What I like about Lover-Beauty is that they always provide costumers with high-quality products at competitive factory-direct prices. 

Since summer is coming in half of the world, this is the perfect opportunity to buy wholesale bikinis. The offer of Lover-Beauty is really wide. They have bikinis of all types, styles and colors. Their prices are super cheap, and they have a range of between 4 and 9 dollars. 

There is also a variety of sizes and, something that I find super interesting is that when you click on any item, you can also know  how many units are left of each product and, in addition, they have a 15-day guaranteed return. Also, under the product they offer you details of the same, making the choice easier and ensuring that you choose the ideal bikini according to your preference!


But, if you also want to buy a swimsuit instead of a bikini, they also have a great offer in the section "wholesale plus size swimwear". Personally, I think that it is good to alter between wearing a bikini and a swimsuit, I find it more fun to have something of each style. Again, I was super impressed with the variety of patterns and colors they have: plain, colorful bathing suits with flowers, palm trees and more. Prices are in the range of 6 and 13 dollars, and sizes range from S to 5XXL (depends on the model).

Like I mentioned above, under the product they offer you details of the same, making the choice easier and ensuring that you choose the ideal bikini according to your preference, and I think it's a great idea when you have to purchase anything.


Hope you find the right item for this summer at lover beauty!
