Summer Favorites: 3 Great Books:

Hello everyone!
Something different today; we are going to talk about my 3 favorite books for this Summer:
– I’ve just finished Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer, which was brilliant! To be more specific, the story is captivating, unique and unsettling. Also, it is very well written.

This is the first book of a trilogy called the Southern Reach Trilogy (the other 2 are Authority and Acceptance). It’s pretty weird and sometimes you don’t understand what is going on, but chapter after chapter you’ll get all the pieces to answer some of your questions.

However, there are more than enough unanswered questions to make you want to read the next book in the series. 


Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; all the members of the second expedition committed suicide; the third expedition died in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another; the members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within months of their return, all had died of aggressive cancer.

This is the twelfth expedition.

Their group is made up of four women: an anthropologist; a surveyor; a psychologist, the de facto leader; and our narrator, a biologist. Their mission is to map the terrain and collect specimens; to record all their observations, scientific and otherwise, of their surroundings and of one another; and, above all, to avoid being contaminated by Area X itself.

They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X delivers—they discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding—but it’s the surprises that came across the border with them, and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another, that change everything.

– The second book is Please Kill Me by Legs McNeils and Gillian McCain, and it’s not a novel. It is a collection of interviews and stories about the rise and fall of the American Rock/Punk-Rock movement through the ’60 and ’70. 

P.S: At the end of the book you will find a lot of pictures of Iggy Pop, Dee Dee Ramones, Patty Smith and more!


“Please Kill Me” is the first oral history of the most nihilist of all pop movements. Iggy Pop, Danny Fields, Dee Dee and Joey Ramone, Malcom McLaren, Jim Carroll, and scores of other famous and infamous punk figures lend their voices to this definitive account of that outrageous, explosive era. From its origins in the twilight years of Andy Warhol’s New York reign to its last gasps as eighties corporate rock, the phenomenon known as punk is scrutinized, eulogized, and idealized by the people who were there and who made it happen.

– The last book it’s a little bit different because it’s not a “reading” book but a coloring one: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book: Secret Garden by Johanna Basford! If you are on holiday and you need some extra relaxing time, go grab your Staedtler pencils and have fun!

Sorry no sinopsis this time, only colorful pencils everywhere. 😉

Maybe a little intro:

This beautiful and interactive coloring book features delicate and highly detailed pen-and-ink illustrations—all waiting to be brought to life with color. As added entertainment, tiny garden creatures are hidden on the pages, waiting to be found, and a key and index are included in the back. The book’s cover and jacket are also colorable.
