off • lines - Analog High-Tech

I am a blogger yes, but all my blog posts are always written before in a notebook, to make changes and allow me to think better what I really want to say on the post. That's why this week I was in the London Stationery Show, there were so many new and amazing products to try and discover that I will have a lot of stationery posts in the next month! ;)


Today I want to talk about off • lines paper manager, that has won the German Design Award 2017.
It fits in every pocket, is easy to use and doesn't need re-charge or waiting to be updated. you can write in it with any type of ink. And is easy to assemble, it comes with the cover, 64 papers and a rubber to stick together, admit it, is quite an original idea!


This notebook is handmade and the cover waterproof and shockproof, so really, this is the best analog high-tech notebook you'll ever find (and is not expensive!), trust me! ;)

Did You see Melody by Sophie Hannah

Did You see Melody by Sophie Hannah
Genre: Psychological Thriller
Rating: 4'5/5


Cara Burrows had booked a very expensive holiday to disconnect from her family and to take a very important decision that will change all of their life... But in some twist of fate, she discovers that she may have seen a dead girl and it seems that her life could be in danger... now she just wants to return home!

'"Once the tiniest doubt creeps in, you start to wonder about everything.
When I'm alone, I whisper over and over, "My name is Melody Chapa, my name is Melody Chapa." It makes me feel worse - as if the girl trying to convince me must have a different name - though there's no one there but me.'

I've read a few of Sophie Hannah books, so when I discovered all the twists she prepared for this book, I was ready for them, and of course I love surprises! ;)
The Melody case is not easy to explain, but between the interviews Cara watch online and the research she makes in the resort, we discover all the dirty secrets about the case. Melody disappeared, but her parents are in prison for her death, even if her body was never found... so what had Cara seen a ghost or the real Melody? Of course, I will not tell you the answer, the book is worth the reading and discover the truth! And as maybe you can imagine, the case was closed, but there are still people that don't want the truth going out, and that puts Cara's life in danger!
I like that in Sophie Hannah books everything is connected, there are no missing links, everything fits in the end, that makes her books different, but at the same time great! She is the queen of the psychological thrillers, there's no doubt about it.
Did You See Melody is a book that will make you re-think about justice and about how much the press can influence on the case, making a person guilty or innocent depending on who talks about it and how good your mood is when you talk to the press.
This is a psychological thriller where the truth maybe will never go out... Did You See Melody?

Mills & Boon Insider - April 2017


I've been selected to be one of the Mills & Boon Insiders, so from now on, every month, I will share with you their new books, because I love mystery and crime, but every now and then is nice to have a little bit of romance in your life, don't you think? ;)
This month I will recommend you...


Conveniently Wed To The Greek by Kandy Shepherd

A beautiful island and a handsome greek are the perfect ingredients for a love romance...!
Neither Dell or Alex are searching for love, they just have a business contract, but you know that love grows when you less expect it and in the more curious moments, don't you think?
This quick read will delight you with a sweet romance in a sublime Greek island and with a delicious story to entertain everyone. Ready?



The Sheikh's Bought Wife by Sharon Kendrick

Jane and Zayed don't love each other, the most appropriate word would be, tolerate... so a marriage between them would be volatile, at least... They decide that if they marry it would be beneficial for them both, and after six months they can divorce... but living with someone day and night could make the anger sparks turn to love, and maybe the marriage is not a bad idea?
With some high voltage scenes and a lot of pleasure, we will fall at the playboy Zayed net... will it be enough for Jane?
Enjoy this dessert passion!



Mummy, Nurse... Duchess? by Kate Hardy

Can a widow mother of two fall in love again?
Rosie is a nurse and a mother, and she thinks is not yet ready to find a father for her child... but Cupid has other plans for her and will throw a love spell between her and the new handsome doctor, Leo, who is a Duke too! Rosie just has to let everything fit in... but maybe is too scared?
I liked this sweet story where we learn about some illnesses and we can understand Rosie's behaviour and her fear to love again, but love is almost always worth it, don't you think?
A romantic novel for medical lovers!
