Books I’ve read lately

Versiunea în limba română a acestui articol o găsiți aici.

Hello everybody,

First of all I want to say I’m sorry I didn’t stick to my regular publishing program this week. I’ve been very busy and I simply didn’t have time to write an article. Also I didn’t want to post something random just to fit the schedule.

That being said, here I am with a post about books.

As many of you, I don’t have a lot of time to sit, relax and read books. But as I enjoyed this activity I had to search for a solution for this problem, and I found it this year in February. Recently (a few months ago), I changed my job and now, to get to work, I have to spend 20-25 minutes in public transportation. So there’s my window! I now have almost 50 minutes each day, from Monday to Friday, to read what I please.

So let’s see what books I was able to “devour” in the past few months.


 Invisible Man by H. G. Wells

Because the book was short, around 200 pages, I was able to finish it quickly. I won’t put the description here, but you can find it on  Goodreads.

Personal opinion:

The reason why I started this book was because it was short so I could easily carry it in my bag at work and because I heard a lot about H. G. Wells in Warehouse 13, where (spoiler alert) she’s a badass. I obviously don’t believe the character from that TV series and author had much in common, but it made me curious.

At first, I didn’t know what to expect from this book, as I never read H. G. Wells. I was surprised with the amount of action, in a good way. I thought it would be more boring and predictable. I obviously can’t say much about this but I recommend you to try it.

So I liked the book. I can’t say it’s my favorite, because the old English used makes me read it slower.


Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual: For Everyone from Beginner to Pro

I started reading this books almost a year ago. I’ve read 50 pages and then I didn’t have time to finish it. No, I had it on my Kindle which can fit in almost any bag I have with me when I go to work.

The book is split in 2 parts: one  beginners (regular women) and one for makeup artist.

In the first part Bobbi explains everything from face creams to foundation, mascara, simple and more complex makeup looks. The book, and especially this part, has a lot of pictures for when she’s explaining something to you.

I like that she talks about all skin types and colors and she also gives many advices for each of them. Some I knew, some I didn’t. Some I agree with, some I don’t.

The second part is more for the people that want to be makeup artists for a living. She tells you what jobs you could do and how to get and prepare for them.

All in all, I think it’s a great book for makeup lovers.


Did you read any of these books? What did you think? What do you recommend me to read next?
