Let´s go for a ride…

New projects – I’d like to be an octopus or to have a clone!

Hi guys! It’s been 4 months since I last updated this blog; I know I do not have many followers or that I do not owe any explanation, but writing about it is also a way to update this place.

I would love to have a clone by now.

At this very moment, I have the following projects going on:

  1. I write monthly articles (in Portuguese) for the webpage Brasileiras Pelo Mundo (, about how is life here in Madrid, Spain. This is very nice, but also time-consuming because there are deadlines and deadlines. My aim is to post them here, translated, in case it helps people thinking of moving to Madrid;
  2. I started crocheting and knitting. Of course, it is a hobby, but dedication is necessary, and it takes time. And practice. And time. I also created an Instagram account for it, the @blumennadel, if anyone wants to check it out;
  3. I keep on studying German, and if any of you have already studied it, you know it is Total. Craziness. Like, totally. I spend literally hours to study each topic, so my brain is just wasted;
  4. Until I don’t win the lottery, I guess I’ll just have to stay where I am lol.

So this is it. I thought about posting videos to comment the books I read, what do you think? Would this be nice? Would you watch it? Lol! At least it is faster, I guess.

Well, that is all for today! Hope you are all fine and with a bit more of time than I am! Lol




Ofrenda a la Tormenta (Trilogía del Baztán, #3) , by Dolores Redondo

Hello everyone

I am pretty sad today… I have finished reading the last book of the Trilogía del Baztán on Saturday, and I simply can’t start another book yet… Does this happen to you?

As I had said before, I have not received this book from anyone, I bought it myself because I liked the description, and it was a sweet surprise.

In this last book, the real truth behind the murders in Elizondo comes to the surface, and for more ironic that this can be, the truth is so deep and so frightening that you will finish the book like me, begging for a 4th one.

Legado en los Huesos (Trilogía del Baztán, #2) , by Dolores Redondo

Hola, chicos!

This weekend I have finished the last book of this trilogy, and although I read it in Spanish, it is available in many languages.

I have bought these books out of curiosity, and also because I wanted to read in Spanish to improve my vocabulary. To be honest I picked the first book up randomly at a supermarket, and I have to say it has been one of the best choices I have EVER made randomly.

On the second book, Amaia (who is now pregnant) is requested at the trial of one of the murders of the first book, and just as the trial started, everybody was shocked to know the murder had killed himself. Continue reading “Legado en los Huesos (Trilogía del Baztán, #2) , by Dolores Redondo”

El guardián invisible (Trilogía del Baztán, #1) , by Dolores Redondo

Hello, everyone!

I am in love with this book and I cannot accept the fact that I have finished it! D:
The good part is that it is the first book of a trilogy, so it means I have 2 more books to read!



Amaia Salazar is a police inspector who is put in charge of an investigation of a series of murders in Elizondo, her hometown. Young girls are being murdered and their bodies displayed as if they were images of purity and sanctity.

Once Amaia goes back to Elizondo to conduct the investigation, she automatically goes back to her traumas and to unsolved family issues, and she has to deal with both her inner struggles and the case’s particular characteristics.

Perdition (A Nell McGraw Investigation #2), by R. Jean Reid

Hey everyone!

First of all, I would like to thank NetGalley once again for another spectacular book!

The book starts describing a series of abuses, violence and even a murder, leaving a child without his family several years ago.

Many years later, a black girl’s body is found in the woods of a city, and although the authorities state that the girl has run away from home and had an accidental, the reporter Nell McGraw believes the girl has been murdered. Continue reading “Perdition (A Nell McGraw Investigation #2), by R. Jean Reid”

The Gentleman Shopkeeper: A Mystery Novel, by D.V. Haynes

This book was kindly provided to me by NetGalley in exchange of an honest review.

Mr. Crackery is a very polite and formal English man who runs a store in England. One day he went to his store and, as he parked on his usual spot, he got his car wheel clamped, and the man would only release his car upon the payment of a 30 pounds fine. While they were arguing, the man died, and afraid of being charged with murder, Mr. Crackery decides to investigate by himself. Continue reading “The Gentleman Shopkeeper: A Mystery Novel, by D.V. Haynes”

Mind Games, by Andrew Field

** Sequence of Wicked Games **
In the end, it is all about money. Everything. Ethics, favors and people: all can be bought, it all depends on the price you are willing to pay.

Wicked Games, by Andrew Field

Victims and/or survivors of very stressful situations such as wars or even abuses suffer the consequences of these events in a way most of us will probably never fully understand. Also, they will probably carry those scars through their entire lives (through a PTSD or scars from a suicide attempt, for example). Continue reading “Wicked Games, by Andrew Field”

Dying Games (Jefferson Tayte Genealogical Mystery #6), by Steve Robinson

Hey, guys!!!

How deep are you willing to go for a revenge? Continue reading “Dying Games (Jefferson Tayte Genealogical Mystery #6), by Steve Robinson”
