Comics Review: The Worrier's Guide to Life by Gemma Correll

The Worrier's Guide to Life by Gemma Correll
If you're floundering in life, striking out in love, struggling to pay the rent, and worried about it all -- you're in luck! World Champion Worrier and Expert Insomniac Gemma Correll is here to assure you that it could be much, much worse.

In her hugely popular comic drawings, Gemma Correll dispenses dubious advice and unreliable information on life as she sees it, including The Dystopian Zodiac, Reward Stickers for Grown-Ups, Palm Reading for Millennials, and a Map of the Introvert's Heart. For all you fellow agonizers, fretters, and nervous wrecks, this book is for you. Read it and weep...with laughter.
Loved these comics!. I could relate to all of them, me being the over thinker I am! (but trying not to be hehe), Seriously, I just laughed at every page and even shared some with my boyfriend, who knows me so well he just laughed with/at me. The illustrations are just funny/sarcastic and cute, and my favorites were the Palm Reading for Millennials, My savings account and the Wheel of Insomnia!

The Worrier's Guide to Life is very fast to read, you could read one page a day or read it all at once like me...but it's sure going to be a fun reading :) Totally recommend it!

TV Series I'm watching

Not only I love books, but I really enjoy watching tv series. I thought probably some of you enjoy them too, so I wanted to share the ones I'm watching/following and maybe you'll recommend me others!


Outlander is my recent addiction! I haven't read the books, so I can't compare, but I think the show is amazing. It's full of action, drama and yep, romance! Perfect for me, I can't say I love my sappy romances but I really like the combination of strong women, pretty sexy love scene and some dark twists. Randall? I'm hating him with all my guts right now. He's a sadist! Let just say I can't wait for season finale next week....


So...I like Marvel's super heroes, as you can read in my Avengers: Age of Ultron review, so it's kind of weird I'm not into their tv shows. Must be because I thought other super heroes tv shows weren't good, but I must admit that I sometimes watch Flash and I want to start Agents of SHIELD. Let me tell you, Daredevil is dark. Not like any super hero you are used to, this show is sometimes nasty (a lot of blood and bones breaking). I'm usually strong for these kind of stuff, after all, blood is just a part of my career, but still, sometimes I don't want to look. We (my boyfriend and I) are watching it together, and he loves it! (Men...). I'm really getting into it after watching 8 episodes. I thought it was slow at the beginning and didn't explain anything, but now I'm really excited to watch the rest of the season. It seems like it's going to be an amazing show!


I have a love/hate relationship with Downton Abbey. I love it, but hated....hated....hated! the ending from season 3 (you know...). I even thought about not continuing the series. But now I'm impatiently waiting for season 6 (September 2015). This series is all drama. You know those latin soap operas we are very known for? This is the London edition haha. Really, you want drama? You got it.


I can't say I've watched every episode of The Big Bang Theory, but I always catch up on tv. But seriously, Sheldon and Amy? Whyyyyy? Now I'm really waiting for next season.


Sherlock. Best. Series. Ever.


You need a good laugh? Watch Modern Family! I don't know if it's because our family is as crazy and dysfunctional as they are, but I always find myself laughing with them. I'm impatiently waiting for season finale! (actually it was already released but here we get the episodes a few days later...so no spoilers!)


I used to hate The Simpsons...but I guess now I laugh more about life and appreciate the sarcasm! I watch it every night before sleeping, it's my therapy...

What about you? Tell me all about your currently and all time favorite tv series! And please let me know if there is a difference between a tv show and a tv series?....

Bookmark Monday #6

Bookmark Monday
Bookmark Monday is a weekly meme created at Guiltless Reading, where you can show all your pretty bookmarks...or bookmarks you want to have! If you want to join, just go here.

This week I'll show you a very cool bookmark, made by flaps.com. I got this one last year at a books event called 'Feria Internacional del Libro de Santiago' at Santiago de Chile, actually, I think my sister bought it for me, and it's pretty cool because it has magnets and it stays where you put it. You can use it to mark the page but also the line, isn't that great?





Do you like it? Would you use a bookmark as this one?
