Hello Bookworms,

Welcome to May Reading Aesthetics, where I basically talk about my favorite things for this month’s reading experience.

Beverages: I was in Seattle at the begging of May for a weekend with my best friend. To say I had fun is underrating the amount of delicious food I ate and the delicious coffee I drank. I also had a chance to go to the famous MarketSpice and try their famous blend: cinnamon and orange tea. Let me tell you that this has become my recent favorite reading tea. It is warm, rich in flavor, and very comforting. On the weekends, I even replace it with coffee in the morning sometimes.

Which brings me to coffee. I have been trying to get used to American coffee, since I moved to US. It has not been the easiest thing. I like to use Keurig, but I don’t like the K-cups, because they tend to get expensive and harm the environment. However, I found this steel reusable k-cup, which has saved my life. My new favorite coffee is Gevalia Café. I like my coffee black, but I also add a pump of vanilla (an American discovery of mine) to add richness to the flavor. I love it so far.

I’ve been enjoying ebooks lately, because they are not heavy (textbooks are enough to be carried around), and I can squeeze in little reading times when I am working on my computer.

I’m also a very proud owner of the public library’s card. I visited the public library lately, and let me tell you, I found some gems. I also managed to find one of my favorite horror books “The Girl with the Ghost Eyes”. I would totally recommend getting a library card, because hey, free books.

Books: I have gone back to horror this month. I haven’t had the chance to read a lot of books, because I had finals (I’m in college now), but I did read “Spook Lights I” (review) and “Spook Lights II”, and I really enjoyed them.

I also read “Think Rich, Grow Rich”. Of course, it is not related to horror, but it is very helpful for a 20 year old like me.

Audiobooks: I got two new Audiobooks, “We should all be feminists” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and “The Subtle Art of not giving a F*ck” by Mark MansonI started listening to the second one some days ago, and so far I am enjoying it. I will keep you updated.

Have a wonderful day!
