Over the past week I have been watching "Lo que la vida me robó ". This is a traditional telenovela developed in Mexico by Angelli Nesma Medina. Honestly, when I first was reading about the different telenovelas that I could pick from, I never imagined that this would be the one I would choose. I didn't see myself really getting into it.

Finally, Alejandro Almonte. I'm not sure exactly how I feel about him. He too has been roped into Graciela's game and is paying the price but he did try to buy Monserrat. I truly believe that I will eventually love Alejandro, I'm currently on team José Luis.
Despite my critics on the characters, I do really enjoy this show. I think it is well done although the family life seems a little out of date considering it was made in 2012. I can't wait to continue watching and see what curveballs "Lo que la vida me robó " throws at me
