Subscription Boxes

Owlcrate July 2016 Unboxing

I got my second Owlcrate box! In case you haven't heard of it, Owlcrate is a thematic subscription box featuring bookish items and a hardcover book, mostly Young Adult. This month the box theme was Good vs Evil, which means half of the subscribers got a Good themed box (like me!) and the other half got an Evil one.

How to start reading books

Most of my acquaintances know that I love reading. So, every once in a while someone comes to me telling me they would like to start reading books. And asking for beginner recommendations.

That's honestly one of the most difficult questions I've been asked.

What do you recommend to someone who has no previous experience with books? What if they don't like the book you chose and decide to quit reading forever because of that? 

I know, whenever the question comes, that the future of the person who asked lies in my hands. And I know there are people out there asking o being asked this same question.

That's why I'm sharing my most helpful tips on how to start reading books. From the beginning.

Why I keep playing Animal Crossing

My beloved Animal Crossing: New Leaf already turned 3 years old. And I've loved it since the first time I got my hands on it.

At first I would spend hours talking to my villagers, doing chores and decorating my town. I would play for at least an hour every day. I obsessed over this game for the first months I had it.

And then.. you might know what I discovered after the first 200 hours of play time. Everything is perfect until burn out happens.

But that's okay. It happens to the best of games.

The good thing is that there are many, MANY ways to get the inspiration to keep playing. Here are some of the reasons why I keep playing Animal Crossing, 3 years and 320 hours later.
