We Are Back!

Author: Bruno Thursday 31 August 2023

Yes, here we are again, and with mixed feelings. On the one hand, the long-awaited vacations are over, as well as feeling no stress, enjoying more free time, the sun, and dinners with friends until the body endures. Everything that tastes like summer is nice, so when it ends you feel this emptiness of not wanting it to end, because this rhythm of life is really healthy and the one thing we should know how to maintain throughout the year. However, I am lucky enough to work in something I love, which is part of my life, not to say my whole life and, therefore, the beginning of the year is always exciting. That’s why I was talking about mixed feelings, because I’m down because summer is over, but I’m lifted because of what is coming, because we have great books to start the season, such as the new book by Francesc Miralles, MAZAL, Urano nonfiction award. This one was a book that I read long ago to be submitted for the award, and I liked it so much. I know it will surprise you very pleasantly, and it will continue to open doors to this author. It always seems that his latest work reaches the top, but he is capable of overcoming, and do something better. Incredible!

Just like Míriam Tirado, who comes out with her new book SENTIR. After RABIETAS, REMOVIDAS and LÍMITES, this new book is another one that I find spectacular. Each one is useful, and Míriam grows with each topic helping many people with her books. She’s a crack. Another of the great authors, Álex Rovira, also has a new release for September with TU MENTALIDAD BUENA SUERTE. Alex is another author who transforms and evolves with the world, making books that adapt to new needs without losing their essence. This is something that seems simple to do, but is very complex really, ¡and he makes it easy! Anyone who has been a fan of LA BUENA SUERTE, of which there were millions, can’t miss this one. And Sara Teller, our young neuroscientist, makes her solo debut with her book NEUROCUÍDATE, which brings us closer to our brain one more time, and helps us to understand it and to live better. A match of science and wellness never seen before. I honestly think there is nothing like it on the market.

And now it’s time to review the novels for this season. They all excite me for different reasons. Miquel Esteve is back with AMOR SIN MUNDO, an extraordinary novel about the relationship between Martin Heidegger and Hannah Arendt, two great European intellectuals. Bea Cabezas, an author with whom we have been working since immemorial times, and who had not published for a long time, brings out the novel LA LLIÇÓ DE PIANO, with a key theme: The road where motherhood is going. It will not leave anyone indifferent. In addition, Xavier Álvarez LLaberia publishes a new novel, which reads like a true crime, EL CONFIDENT; lovers of the genre will fall in love with it literally, and Barcelona is the main scenario. And two final big bombshells, the Prudenci Bertrana award with the signature of the great Jordi Solé, L’ANY QUE VAIG ESTIMAR AVA GARDNER, a great novel, with the signature of a great author; and Sandra Aza, a new author who has everything to take our market by storm. If LA CATEDRAL DEL MAR was the novel of Barcelona, LIBELO DE SANGRE is the great novel of Madrid in the Golden Age. Lovers of historical novels are going to surrender to this Madrid, I have no doubt. Go and book it now because it will be sold out in two days. It’s just a hunch, but my intuition often works and LIBELO has everything to succeed. And finally, another novel by Francesc Miralles, with whom I started this blog and it is an honor to finish it with him. He does not abandon the juvenile world, and he does well, because he is also a master in this genre: JOHANNA Y EL DR. FRANKL is another novel of those that leave a mark.

We will be uncovering a little more of each one of them each week, but with this summary, you can already make a list to go to the bookstore and choose the readings that will help you to return to work. Reading is life, and it is always an ideal companion for specific moments, such as the rentrée, and everyone can choose as they feel. You can see that there is a litle bit of everything and everything is good. So happy return to all of you, and happy readings!

Happy Vacations!

Author: Bruno Thursday 27 July 2023

After a few months of intense work, the desired summer vacations are here and at the Agency we are also taking a few days off.

⚠️ The Agency will be closed from Friday 7/28 to 8/27.

😊 On August 28th we start again, with many irresistible novelties, with renewed strength and a smile, as always.


Author: Bruno Thursday 20 July 2023

If you stay at home on vacations, reading can make you travel. The realism of a prose can take you to lots of places with your imagination, feel smells and, why not, surprise you and make you happy. There are so-called “mirror neurons” which, as their name suggests, copy the actions of other people and transform them into their own. For example, if we read that someone is walking in Paris, in our mind we will also walk there. The brain knows how to distinguish reality from fiction, but as long as we are still in France (while reading), our mirror neurons will be activated with the same intensity they would have if that was really happening.

So that you can travel with your imagination we recommend these readings, which we have already talked about in our blog during these months:

– For those who love History novels: El Legado de las cenizas and La ciudad de los muchachos.

– For those who love suspense: The books starring Marcela Pieldelobo, Los crímenes de Hamlet and Juego de silencios.

– For those who love fresh stories: Coworking.

– For those who love LGTBQ stories: Armarios y barricadas, Y que nadie sepa nada and El somriure dels dofins.

– For those who love moving stories: En el lago and El radiofonista.

The wheel of healthy living

Author: Bruno Thursday 13 July 2023

This week’s blog is difficult for me to write because I would like to be able to express in words, and as well as the author does, why it is important to read this book, to have this real vision of what we have to give importance to, and no one better than the author herself can explain it. However, I will try to do it: SOY COMO COMO is a book that aims to be a guide to be able to have the healthiest life possible, and it is not only about taking care of food, although this is one of the main axes in which Núria has always moved for twelve years, but there are five more axes, fundamental to achieve it. Núria Coll, author of the book, has created the wheel of healthy living. In the book, she explains that one day she imagined a wheel harmoniously divided into the foundational axes of what she considers a healthy life. Food plays a fundamental role, but there are five other axes that complement the wheel: toxins, rest, physical activity, emotional management and the tribe.

By reading this book, we will go through each section and learn how to integrate each of the six axes into our daily lives and the reasons why Núria thinks it is vital to know many of the whys and wherefores of each step. It is a great guide, which I would have liked to have had before, given that changing habits that are already established is difficult; I will not deny it, because my husband thinks I have gone crazy, since I have changed, for example, all the utensils in my kitchen to be able to cook without toxins, or I have made myself a strength routine, as physical activity, to be able to continue being fitter in a healthier way. This book is a lighthouse to start slowly but surely, because we only have one life and if we don’t take care of ourselves, no one else will do it better.

This is a book that unites many aspects that other self-help books have already told us that we should do to live better, to be happier, to live longer, but here, being the backbone the food, the other axes make all the sense in the world, and some help others to complete this wheel of healthy living and know how to change the chip, without laziness, and how to do something to make our body as healthy as possible, and consequently our life will be better, longer, but with quality. Do you dare to meet this author and her method? There is nothing like this on the market and, on the other hand, it is absolutely necessary and adaptable to any country and diet. These habits that the author explains to us in a clear way will help us to feel better and to have a broad vision that we can change many things before filling ourselves with pills and complaining all day that we feel without energy, that we have pains, etc. So, here we have much more than a food guide that gives us the necessary guidelines for a healthy life in all the vital aspects of our routine. I hope many of you will be able to try it; I am already doing it, and it works. And summer is an ideal time to do this reset, to read and start as soon as possible to modify what depends on ourselves. Shall we go for it?

The incredible adventure of Jack and the abandoned zoo

Author: Bruno Thursday 6 July 2023

It’s almost summer, we are about to start our vacations, and one of the things many parents want is for their children to read. My first piece of advice would be for the children to see that behavoir at home; therefore, every Family member should go on vacations with a book in their suitcase, and dedicate time to read. For me it is one of the best moments of the day. Reading is one of the best pleasures, and it hooks. Besides, if you have a story that captivates you, it is one of the best addictions in life.

However, we have to give children something to have fun with, and Sacha Azcona is a specialist in this. With his new title, LA INCREÍBLE AVENTURA DE JACK Y EL ZOO ABANDONADO, he manages to bring a smile to anyone’s face, because the reader falls in love with that lion that had no teeth and that, instead of being scary, made them laugh. They meet a very bad boy, but bad, bad, bad, bad. With a mute giraffe, in love with a blind bat, and with a man who painted green horses. What more do you want? Well, there’s more, as we meet a man who traveled the world and fought a shark the size of a truck. And a wonderful boy named Jack, and a little Chihuahua dog named Frufrú. With this cast of characters, children enter this magical world and do not want these adventures to end and are able to read the story over and over again, until they find no more adventures of these wonderful characters. So this recommendation is for the little ones in the family, who have had fun with crazy movies like Jumanji, and can do just as well or better with books like this one.
