🌿 Hi guys!! I hope you’re having a great day and that you’re enjoying your current reading.❤️
I’m SO grateful because I’ve been approved with two ARCs that I really wanted and today I bring you my reviews for both of them. I have many thoughts to share with you about both books, stories quite different from each other, but they share a point and it is that both are VERY shocking & heartbreaking.
I hope you like both reviews, they’re a bit long this time, but I had a lot of feelings to put out there so I hope it doesn’t bother you. I’m super excited to share my thoughts with you, since I’ve also found one of my favorite books of the year and that’s INCREDIBLE, so without further ado, let’s start! and I hope you have the most incredible day 🌿
🌿 Hi guys!! I hope you’re having a great day and that you’re enjoying your current reading.❤️
🕯️ Hi guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful day, full of fantastic readings. 🧡 Today I was really looking forward to bringing you some recommendations, you know that I love to recommend books that I’ve read and enjoyed, but I haven’t done one of these in a while and I need to change that, so here I am! 👏🏻
Because Halloween is very close and October is the horror month, I’ve decided to make of this post a top 5 with some of my favorite spooky readings. I don’t usually read much horror, really, but I do love reading books with creepy atmospheres and dark stories, mystery, and suspense, so each of these books will surely have some of those characteristics. They may not be books that scare you to death, but they’ll surely make you live a whole experience of tension and suspense, on the edge of your seat. 😱
I hope you enjoy the post and that you decide to read some of these disturbing stories, I’ll really recommend each one of them and I would love to know your thoughts.
P.S: My intention with this post isn’t just to recommend books that I loved, but I also think that these are spooky books I don’t hear about too much and I believe with all my soul that they deserve greater recognition because they’re BRILLANT, the books, and their authors. I hope I can surprise you with books you haven’t heard enough about yet, and hopefully, you can find a new favorite 💫
I’m super excited so … let’s get started! 🕯️ Continue reading “Book Recommendations || Spooky Edition 🕯️”
🌙 Hi guys!! I hope you’re having a beautiful and wonderful day, full of incredible readings. 💕 As I told you, I’m trying to catch up with my tags and awards, so that’s what I’m doing today. I’ve been nominated 5 months ago, kind of, for the incredible Cait || GoodeyReads ||🌹 I’m super grateful for the nomination and I’m very sorry that it took me so long to do it, but better late than never, right? 😅. I highly recommend that you check Cait’s blog, she and her content are great, so you can’t miss it!. As always, I hope that we can chat a little about each question, I would like you to know your own answer in the comments and tell me what you think about my answers and about how my mind works, I think it’s always interesting and fun to talk about bookish and not-bookish things with you. 🥰
Before I started, I wanted to share with you my little frustration of the week, I know you’ll probably tell me that it’s not a big deal, but I wanted to read at least my 2 ARCs this week to bring you my reviews, since both were released the same day, but things are a little crazy in my life right now and I couldn’t do it. ☁️ We have discovered that my mother will have to go through surgery, thanks to God and the universe it’s nothing serious, but as it will be the first time she went through this type of intervention I’ve been there for her and taking care of everything so that she can be calm and not worry about anything else, that’s why I’ve neglected my readings a little, I guess my mind has been elsewhere. I don’t tell you this to victimize myself, I just really wanted to bring you the content in time and I couldn’t, so I wanted to let you know why, and I also want you to know that it will be arriving very soon. ☁️ I’m currently reading The Grace Year by Kim Liggett and spoilers alert… I’M LOVING IT. So stay tuned for my review very soon. I LOVE YOU and I always appreciate your support, I swear I feel you very close despite the distances ❤️
Well, I don’t want to make this any longer than it is, so without further ado, let’s start and I hope you really enjoy the post and I wish you have the most beautiful weekend. 🌙 Continue reading “The Sunshine Blogger Award || #3 🌙”

🌼 Hi, my beautiful bookish people, I hope you’re having the most amazing day. 💞 This is a new blog post series, where every month I’ll highlight a series of blog posts, from around the book blogger community, that I enjoyed reading or that I think are amazing and deserve more love and recognition. With this, I hope to be able to somehow support other book bloggers more, and I also hope you can find new book blogs to follow or content that interests you or help you.
Maybe the look of this post will be simpler to what you usually see on the blog, but I like this idea and it’s honestly with the simple purpose of supporting each other more and we can find new content in a simple and organized way.
I don’t have a certain amount to I’m highlighting per month, they’re just posts I’ve come across with and I think they’re INCREDIBLE, so I want to share them with you all. I used to make a small top 5 with my favorite posts of the month, but I realized that I had to delete many posts to be able to select only 5, and I don’t think it’s fair, there are SO many wonderful posts and everyone deserves the same love and recognition, so that’s why I decided to make this post apart. 😊
I hope you enjoy, like and support this new idea. I LOVE YOU 🥰 and let’s start!🌼
🌘 Hi guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day! 💞 Today I bring you my TBR for the month of October, where I’ll tell you everything I’ll be reading during the month. Finally, the horror month has arrived and I’m super excited for it, I’ve been planning a lot and changing my TBR like crazy, so I hope to have put together a good stack and enjoy the majority of them. Despite having 2 ARCs that I really have to read in October, I’ll be focusing on those mysterious, spooky vibes or witchy books that I’ve had in my TBR for some time now, or that I just really want to read. This type of books where something magical happens or is located in a creepy place or is absolutely atmospheric, are my favorite readings for the whole year, but it feels even more special to read them during October since most of us will be reading the same things, so it will be fun to exchange opinions and know more about you own picks, I always LOVE to know! 😍 I also plan to watch some movies this month, I haven’t watched almost anything in September, and I really love watching movies so I’ll be looking for some horror to check out, so if you have any recommendations, let me know in the comments, that would be great! 🧡
I’m very very happy for the great success that my September has been in terms of reading, so this month I feel somewhat ambitious, I don’t want to exaggerate because we all know where that ends, but I do want to at least try to read those books that I’ve wanted to read since that came out and prioritize them. 👏🏻 I know this month is full of incredible read-a-thons, but I’ve decided to stay out of them this year because I’ve been participating in too many and I just want to read relaxedly what I’ve already chosen, no pressure, you know?. Don’t misunderstand me, though, I love read-a-thons and you know it, especially since they push you to read a little more and get out of your comfort zone, but this month I don’t feel like pressure, so I think it’s the best decision. Even so, I’ll be following all of you who participate, because I adore this kind of spooky read-a-thons and I’m already dying to know that you’ll be reading. 😊
💫 In other news, as I do every year, I’ll be taking a two-week vacation and we’ll go on a trip with my boyfriend, I’ll be leaving on October 28 and I’ll be away for most of November. 🤗
As you know, this doesn’t mean that I’ll not be checking your posts from time to time, but it does mean that I’ll not be uploading content and maybe I don’t read much either. Personally, I feel that it’s something that I need to do for myself, my mind and my health, so it’s a mini-rest thing and then I’ll return as usual.
I’ll probably have my Wrap Up quite early in the month, but well, closer to the date I’ll let you know again. 💫
Lastly, and before I begin, I want to thank you as I do every month for the support and love that you give me with each “comment” and “like”, it means the world for me to have you and only a few days ago I received the notification that my traffic has grown, and I have no words, it really is a blessing and I thank the universe for having created the blog because the connections I’ve made with you all will be forever. I LOVE YOU and I hope you have the most wonderful month ❤️
Now without further ado let’s start, I have a lot to show you 🌘 Continue reading “October TBR || Spooky & Witchy Reads + some ARCs || 2019 🌘”
🌻 Hi guys!! I hope you’re having the best day & you’re enjoying your reading 💞 Today I bring you my beloved Wrap Up of the month of September, where I’ll talk about all the books I’ve read during the month. OMG, this month really flew by, I mean, where did it go? It seems yesterday when it was just beginning, it’s crazy. Being totally honest right now, I’ve nothing really crazy or excited to tell you about this month in terms of my life as such, I’m SO boring 😅, it was quiet, relaxing I guess, and I’ve been trying to connect more with myself during September, I’ve been meditating, which is really helping me a lot with my anxiety. Spring began where I live, so right now I’m quite envious of all those who are going through my beautiful Autumn 🍂 , I swear that autumn is my favorite season, I love the landscapes and the weather a lot, so enjoy it for me. 😭
As you know, I’ve changed many things on the blog and it makes me happy that most of you liked, honestly. 🥰
In terms of reading month, has really been an AMAZING month, in fact, it’s my best month of the year so far 🎊, if I know, WHAT! LOL. I’m super excited, I didn’t expect to read so much cause I had honestly gone into this weird moment where I didn’t know what I wanted to read and wasn’t sure, so I decided to follow my intuition and it was perfect, I found books that I LOVED, so I really can’t complain. You’ll see a little as I did in terms of number in my statistics section, but I’m really very pleased with what I’ve achieved because even though I have several short books, I’m proud of myself. 😊
I’ve read the ARCs that I set out to, so that’s always good, I have a couple of short stories that have surprised me, both for good and for bad, actually. Then we have another small stack of books that were very anticipated by me, and I think that in general, I’ve enjoyed most of the things I’ve read. I’ve even given a couple of 5 stars, and you know that’s weird for me, so YAY, celebrate with me!!! 🥳
I participated, as always, in the Contemporary-a-Thon, in the link you can see all the information related to it, and the truth is that I LOVE this read-a-thon, it’s one of my favorites, I always find very good books when I participate and this time wasn’t the exception. In fact, OMG, I almost forgot to mention it, a miracle happened and you know what? … I COMPLETED ALL THE CHALLENGES!! *victory dance*
I think that setting a more realistic goal was a good idea, so super happy with the results.
I’m dying to start talking to you about the books, tell you a little about my statistics and share some of my faves post of the month. So, let’s start! 🌻 Continue reading “September Wrap Up || Contemporary-a-Thon & My Best Reading Month So far? || 2019 🌻”
