Why I Won’t Be Reading Any Books This Summer

Oh Summer 2015! You are here!

Even though I have always lived in an almost eternal summer between Dominican Republic, Miami and now Nicaragua, recently I have noticed that now that I am in my thirties, I look forward and get excited about season changes.

As you know, I love to plan. New seasons are a great opportunity for planning for the quarters ahead. Beyond fashion color trends, my excitement is more linked to planning around weather and seasonal activities. After Spring cleaning inspired on The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, Summer Reads are here.

I struggled for years, trying to catch up with all the books that I would love to read. My eyes and legs are tired from sitting in front of the computer all day, so ebooks became challenging too. Traveling with books+a laptop+luggage is not fun, therefore I never tackled that list.

This is why I am so happy to share with you my newfound love for audiobooks!


I had never listened to an audiobook, until one day that I was exploring for inspiration purposes.

I downloaded her audiobook The Desire Map, listened to it during breaks: While preparing breakfast, doing the dishes, getting ready to go outIn a couple of hours I was done! It made me feel productive, inspired, cultured and cool! 

A gift from above! 

It was time to choose my next audiobook. I continued with The Fire Starter Sessions, also by Danielle LaPorte:


These two books changed the way I approach all my personal, business, and creative ventures.  


I am using them as engines to recharge for the second half of the year and I have already made important decisions based on them.

Stay tuned for detailed official reviews.

Meanwhile, listen to me when I tell you: 

Listen The Desire Map and The Fire Starter Sessions.

You can thank me later.

Have a great summer!

Love you,


P.S..: What are you “reading” or “listening to” this summer? What do you recommend? Please share, I’d love to know!
