What's In My Bookshelf

Updated: May 22, 2020

It started when my cousin gifted me Harry Potter y La Piedra Filosofal-- or Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone-- when I was in fourth grade and learning to speak English. Up to that point reading was not a part of my lifestyle. I much preferred to dance or play with my Barbie dolls.

But the world of Harry Potter captured me and has not let me go even today. It also cultivated in me passion for reading. Since then I have devoured books about everything and anything. I try to keep it balanced between fiction and non-fiction, Spanish and English.

So here's my pile of recent reads and to-be read and my thoughts!

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime

Highly recommend this one for those who enjoy humor as well as learning. The book is narrated first-person by main character Christopher John Francis Boone, a 15-year-old boy who describes himself as "a mathematician with some behavioral difficulties" living in Swindon, Wiltshire. Although Christopher's condition is not stated, the book's blurb refers to Asperger syndrome, high-functioning autism, or savant syndrome. If you've ever felt like an outsider looking in or misunderstood, this book is for you.

The Circle

Set in the future, The Circle is for you if you often wonder how far technology will evolve and how much privacy we will continue to lose for the sake of information. This is something that main character Mae also struggles to coming to terms with as she lands a highly desirable job at the powerful technology company. Quick and interesting read.

What Alice Forgot

Do you remember what you were like 10 years ago? I don't mean how you looked, I mean how you thought of the world and what your relationships with people were like. In this book we meet Alice, who has lost the last 10 years of her memory in a spinning class accident. Follow her as she tries to reconstruct how she became who she is and tries to recover some parts of who she use to be.

Moonwalking with Einstein

I haven't read this one yet but if you have I would love to hear your take! From what I gathered it is about memory and how to enhance your own.

And what are you reading these days ? This could be a monthly thing maybe ? Also, reading tips, reading habits. Just a few pointers ;-)


They all sound great!! Adding them all to my list. I believe they made The Circle into a movie and it’s with Emma Watson aka The Brightest Witch of Her Age

The Circle and What Alice Forgot both sound like wonderful reads. I am amazed by how much technology has changed everything around us in my own lifetime. I can only imagine how things will be in the future. The movie Wallie wasn't to far off on their predictions.

I love getting lost in a good book and reading a variety of genres! My latest reads include Dying to Be Me by Anita Moorjani and Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt.
