Well, I have to say I’ve been really loving this series. I’ll admit that it took me longer to read this third book than the other two, but when things started getting interesting I just couldn’t put it down.

There are a lot of things I want to share with you guys, so I thought I’d make a post writing about them all. These are some of the things I’ve been liking this month…

I did get a lot of mixed feelings while reading this one; sometimes I was incredibly happy, rooting for Ash, and then others I just wanted to kill him, or anyone, simple as that. So I’m just going to let it all out and share these feelings with you :)

Yes, I know I’ve been making a lot of posts about books, but what can I say? I really love reading and I’ve had a little bit more time this summer to do so. So, about the book… Not long ago I found the Iron Fey series and it really caught my attention, I’m a sucker for fairies, mermaids, dragons and all that kind of stuff, so how could I just not give this a try?

A few days ago I was reading some blogs and found this amazing meme made by Team Tynga’s Reviews, I loved the idea so much that I immediately wanted to join :). So this is the description of the meme:
Stacking The Shelves is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Today I’m going to be talking about the Divergent series (without spoilers, as usual), BUT this time I seriously need to say some things that will contain MAJOR spoilers, I’ll hide that section so anyone who wants to read it just needs to click on the button, if you haven’t read the series then stay away from that button :) don’t click it, don’t.
I think most of you already know what this series is about, since the first movie recently came out; for those of you who don’t (or those who need a reminder), it’s about a dystopian city, where people are divided into five factions: Abnegation, Amity, Candor, Dauntless and Erudite. Once a person turns 16, they have the option of choosing if they want to stay in their faction or if they want to change to another one, there’s an aptitude test they have to go through that may help them with their decision, but it’s entirely up to them what they choose to do. This series tells the story of Beatrice Prior, also known as Tris, who is an Abnegation member but doesn’t feel like she belongs there, so she struggles between having to stay in Abnegation or change factions and, with that, leave her family behind. Not just that, but Tris has a secret she can’t tell anyone… she’s divergent. Dun dun duuuun…

So, lately I've been trying to be more productive and get a lot of things done before going back to class (I can get really bored when I'm not doing anything). One of the things I've been doing is courses on Coursera and I have to say that it's been a lot of fun! :)
One of the courses I'm taking is called Creativity, Innovation and Change and I wanted to talk to you about the assignment we got this week. Most Coursera courses work with weekly videos and an assignment or quiz you have to turn in at the end of the week.
So this week we had to make something called Life Ring. I was a little bit confused at first but when I started making it, little by little, I had a lot of fun and found it to be very useful for my life right now. I won't give you the exact instructions on how to make one, because that's something the teachers of the course provided for us and I don't consider it to be right, but I'll explain the idea of this activity so you can make one yourself, I'm pretty sure there are other instructions out there on how to make this, since I've already seen some life rings out there made by other people.
Now, at first I wasn't sure I wanted to share mine, because it can be a little personal, but I think it can be very helpful to others too. So here's the one I made:
