Holiday break!

Hello readers!

I’m here today to tell you that I will be on vacation until the 10th of August!

I hope to find a lovely weather, but not as hot as in Italy right now. I hope to find new delicious foods, and I hope to buy a lot of new fabulous books!


I will be back with regular posts in August! Happy summer holidays to all of you!

You can still find me on Twitter and Instagram.

May UmaiCrate Unboxing!

Hello readers! Today I will talk about another one of my passion: food. Like, who doesn’t love food?

I’m (nearly) obsessed with food: as an Italian I can say we have a lot of fantastic foods, recipes and flavours. But I also love to try and experiment food from other countries, like Japan.

In the past years I was a compulsive reader of manga and manhwa, a cosplayer (here’s my DeviantArt page with my cosplays) and I was always watching anime, etc…

One day, an ads pop up on my Instagram feed about Umai Crate, a monthly subscription box about Japanese ramen, noodles and soba. I decided to try it.

This is in the photo is the May Umai Crate Box. I pick this because I would try the Lipton tea special edition with Sakura (the cherry flowers). It’s delicious. (the pink box)


Everything I tried in this box is absolutely delicious: there are spicy ramen if you like to test your resistance; cold udon perfect to eat in the summer heat, and this delicious sweet and perfumed sakura tea.

The green one in the right corner was a wasabi soup that I gifted to my dad: he loves Japanese soup so much!

I’m addicted, so obviously I ordered the June box too, that I will show to you in the next post.

Don’t worry if you can’t read Japanese: the box comes with a pamphlet with all the instructions in English and even suggestion and a special recipe.


Are you like me? Do you enjoy to try food from different countries?

Hello! How’s everyone doing?

The challenge is to post some books that I loved and some books that are still on my TBR (please TBR, don’t hurt me), corresponding to each letter of the alphabet.

Personally, I found this challenge on A Book. A Thought. Go and check this great blog!

Please remember that maybe some books will be in Italian. I will write the English title too.

Memorable books:

The Hound of the Baskerville by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: still my favourite adventure with Sherlock Holmes!

Hour of mischief by Aimee Hyndman: a funny adventure, one of my first Book Blog tour!

Honey and Clover by Chica Umino: this manga series of 10 volumes is a bittersweet tale of friendship and love, art and human relations. I love it so much.

Holy cow by David Duchovny: it seems that the only person who liked this book is me. I don’t care.


Books on my TBR:

It seems that The Hanged Man is the first in a series that is incomplete.

And Hag-seed? Everyone talks positively about it!

Have you read some of these books?

Wrap Up: June 2019

Hello readers!

Right now in Italy we are literally melting, the last Friday we had 38°C. in my town. Unbelievable.

In June I’ve read 9 books, finally I read a 5 stars book (yeeee) and at the young age of 32, I’ve read Pride and Prejudice (in Italian).

5 Stars:


The wingsnatchers, that’s the title, even if it’s written so small on the cover, it’s an amazing steampunk/fantasy middle grade. I love it!

3 stars:


The lady in the coppergate tower is a steampunk retelling of Dracula/Rapunzel: interesting but a little boring in the middle.

Mom’s perfect boyfriend is a contemporary really cute with a lot of family dynamics.

2 stars:


Old Dark is a fantasy with a chapter narrated by Dragons: interesting but really violent.

Barnabas Tew and the case of the missing scarab is the first volume in the series: it’s a little boring, maybe it’s your cup of tea if you’re interested in Egyptian Mythology.

The nine worlds is the same as the first book, only with the Gods of Asgard.

Karma (2.5/5) is an urban fantasy for adult (there are mature contents) with characters like Karma and Murphy’s law.

1 star:


A fat shaming book with a stupid male main character and some scenes really WTF? The green dressed ghost is a big NO for me.
