Last IMM of 2012 - December

Considering that only 2 more days left of this year I don’t think that I will be getting any more books this month. These books are both in English and in Spanish as I can read in both language… the joys of learning languages, you don’t need to wait to have the books you want to read translated. 

Blameless, Heartless and Changeless are books 3, 4 and 5 of the Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger. I bought them via Bookdepository… let me tell you that these costed less than 6€ each and that I got book 2 in Spanish for about 17€… that’s why I’m so happy to be able to read in English. I finished Blameless yesterday.

The next two books are Mujercitas (Little Women) by Louisa May Alcott. I haven’t read this book since I was in primary school, it was one of my favourite books back then, this one and the next, Keep The Aspidistra Flying, by George Orwell were… bought?… well I got them at the Official School of Languages here (I’m learning French). They were getting rid of some books from the library and donations on charity purposes, you made a money donation to UNICEF and you could get one book from the table. I had to take these two with me.

I bought the rest of them except for one in bookstores. Most of them are long time awaited for.

Preciada (Prized) by Caragh M. O’Brien, this is the Spanish edition of the book 2 in the Birthmarked series. I started reading it this morning after breakfast and I’ve read the first half of it… I don’t know, it happened the same with Birthmarked

Stone Arabia by Dana Spiotta, altough the editors decided to keep its original English title, the book is in Spanish. It’s about a supposed rockstar… that’s what I liked about it, there aren’t many books with rockstars or musicians as main characters. 

Las Eternas by Victoria Álvarez is the only Spanish book I bought this month. It’s YA and it’s title could be translated as The Eternal (Girls, the adjective is feminine and there is a girl on the cover). Two blogger/friends of mine who I totally trust recommended it to me. 

La Corona de Hielo (Wintersmith) by Terry Pratchett. The title in Spanish actually means ‘The Crown of Ice’. I have nearly all the books written by the genious and still I want more. They give me good moments and many smiles.

El Atlas de las Nubes (Cloud Atlas) by David Mitchell, I didn’t buy this one, my mum bought it for me. Ok, I asked her for it as she was buying another one for my dad… I had read a lot of good comments on Goodreads and there is a movie coming up in 2013 (with Ben Whishaw and Jim Sturgess) what else could I do?
