"Muchos hombres en su situación hubieran preferido el camino de rosas de la frivolidad a las alturas escarpadas del deber, pero Lord Arthur era demasiado concienzudo para poner el placer por encima de los principios."
¿Somos dueños de nuestro propio destino o bien tenemos el camino ya marcado de antemano?
'El crimen de Lord Arthur Savile' es un divertido relato en que el protagonista se verá atrapado por la fuerza de su destino. Como es un hombre tan responsable no podrá hacer otra cosa que cumplir lo que la quiromancia ha decidido por él, deberá cometer un crimen.
El crimen de Lord Arthur Savile (Lord Arthur Savile's Crime), Oscar Wilde, 1887.

Happy almost Friday!!! 🙌🏻🎉 I spent some time walking around my library this morning (even when I have plenty to read at home..my weakness though) and was completely taken in by the YA section. These books were the ones that really started my deep love for books and reading. I had the best school librarian ever and was so lucky to read so many books during those years. Something about seeing old books I read during the middle and high school years make me so happy!! • What books from the past bring a smile to your face?!
"But these words people threw around - humans, monsters, heroes, villains - to Victor it was all just a matter of semantics. Someone could call themselves a hero and still walk around killing dozens. Someone else could be labeled a villain for trying to stop them. Plenty of humans were monstrous, and plenty of monsters knew how to play at being human.” - V.E. Schwab, Vicious
I finished this beautiful book a couple of days ago and I am in love. I love my morally grey characters and V.E. Schwab is the queen. This really plays with what a villain is and the story itself was just so addictive! It was a little on the slow side at times but all my questions were answered and I couldn't be happier with it.
I could easily go on about this for days so I'll just tell you my review of Vicious has just gone live on my blog (link in bio) if you want to know more. At the moment it's my favourite read of 2018 so far!
And this is why I haven't been productive this month. 😂 But no, honestly, this month has probably been the most productive in a really long time, despite the fact that I haven't picked up a single book. 🤷
Good morning bookstagram! Happy Thursday! Do you watch Shonda Rhimes' shows? I'm so glad #TGIT is finally back. I need answers! 😅 Anyway, I'll probably only watch Grey's tonight because a) it's my job and b) I'm behind on Scandal and I need to write at some point tonight. 🤷🏾♀️ ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

My favorite YA book is actually ACOMAF but I didn't want to use it multiple times during this challenge. So I went with my second fave, Fangirl. I love this book. Cath is so relatable and Levi is everything. 😍
