This week started great and then… nothing happened ;-). This tag was created by A New Life Wandering.
1. Discovering Book Shops!
Has I said in my last post, I found through the internet that there are 2 english book shops in Barcelona. Taking advantage of the fact that I had to drop off some samples in the city, I went ahead and visited them. OH MY!!! The first one was incredible, a lot of new titles, a lot of genres, I wanted to buy the whole store. In the end I bought 3 new books…
2. Pastel de Nata and a Delta coffee
If you don’t know what I mean it’s because you’re not Portuguese! Pastel de Nata, or just Nata, is a portuguese pastry and it’s divine! It’s one of those things that you rarely find outside Portugal, and when you do, it’s generally not as good. But I found this little Portuguese cafe and OMG, it was wonderful. Not only did they have the pastry, but they also had Portuguese coffee, and they knew how to make a marvelous expresso – again, very rare in Spain!!! The cafe name is Nata de Lisboa.
3. Emma Approved
Preparing myself to dive in The Lizzie Bennet Diaries book, I went ahead and watched all of Emma Approved. I had started a while ago, but I just wasn’t feeling it, but this time around I watched the whole thing, and I’m glad I did. By the end I was crying my eyes out. They’re just so cute together!!!
4. Books and Twitter!
I’m not an avid user of twitter, that is, until last week. It made my week when I tweeted the review of Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli, and she tweeted me back!!! Huuurrrayyyy!!!!
5. Still on the subject of Twitter…
I would be dismissive if I didn’t acknowledge that each tweet and each picture that the cast and crew from Shadowhunters released put a big smile on my face. A big thanks to them for making my week better!
