June Wrap Up | The Reading Slump Month: Unexpected Readings & Graphic Novels ❄️

❄️ Hi guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings.❤️ Today I bring you a new post… my June Wrap Up! where I’ll tell you ALL about my readings of the month. Well, as you can see from the title, this wasn’t my best reading month and I dare to say that I think it was my worst month in terms of everything that has to do with books so far. If you’ve been through a reading slump then you know that it’s very difficult to describe why it’s happening, you just know that you’re trying to read and nothing seems interesting enough, then you think of thousands of things you could do instead of reading, you just don’t have that motivation to continue your reading and honestly, it feels terrible.  😭 I think it feels even worse when you have a blog because I LOVE sharing my new readings with you and if I don’t read, I don’t have anything to talk to you about and I feel super frustrated, but well, it’s what happened to me this month, unfortunately, I felt this way and I accepted it and decided to go with the flow of what was happening to me and not force myself to read. This is just a stage… I know, you know, and I’m feeling better so everything is fine, I don’t want to be dramatic about it here 😅, I just wanted to share it with you and I also came up with the idea of ​​doing a whole post to discuss this topic and give you some tips that have worked for me in the past and also share our experiences, I think it’s always healing to know that it can happen to all of us and that’s fine, it’s natural. 👏🏻 

In other news, I had decided to participate in Make Your Myth-Taker readathon, a wonderful readathon that you can learn more about by clicking on the link, and obviously, I failed miserably 😂, but that was obvious to me being in a reading slump, honestly, I didn’t feel as to read anything that was in my TBR, so I’m very sorry that I didn’t succeed, but I hope to participate again at another time and do better! I hope you’ve done amazing if you participated. On the other hand, and although it wasn’t my best reading month, I think I’ve read quality things, so that makes me feel a little better. I also found one of the best books I’ve read this year, if not the best! so obviously that deserves celebration. 🥳

I read a hard-hitting contemporary with a mix of magical realism that blew my mind, I still don’t have the words to express how incredible that book was. I’ve also chosen to read graphic novels because they’re quicker & easier to read, so I thought they were exactly what I needed this month and I really liked them. Apart from that, I was part of a blog tour & I read a very intense short novel that I enjoyed a lot. Last but not least, I read one of the most loved books by the community that involves mythology, and I loved it, I had a great experience which I’ll share with you later.
Thank you SO much for being here and sharing each wrap up with me, it means the world for me, and even more when I had such a rare month and full of emotions. 🥰  So without further ado, let’s get started, I’m excited to share my readings with you and tell you a little about them. ❄️ Continue reading “June Wrap Up | The Reading Slump Month: Unexpected Readings & Graphic Novels ❄️”

⭐️ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings and good vibes.❤️ I can’t believe we’re halfway through the year, can you believe it? It’s crazy for me, but here we are again at this moment when we have to set priorities again and look back a little, to see how our year has been so far. This is why today I bring you a list of my favorite books of the year so far!  😍 I know that this is a super popular post within the blogging community, so you’ve probably seen it, but looking at my own blog I saw that I didn’t do this post since 2018, and I don’t know why because I like it so much, so I brought it here back. I think it will be fun to share with you those books that I’ve loved so far, tell you a little about them, and this is kind of an excuse for recommending them as well because I promise you that each one of them is brilliant and unique in its own way. 👏🏻 
This list doesn’t have any type of specific order, the books are randomly positioned and in addition to sharing some keywords of each one, because I think it’s fun, I’ll also leave you some links in case you’re interested in reading them, which I hope you are so because they’re WONDERFUL. I’ve been blessed with the possibility of reading all these books, so I hope you like the post, I’m very excited to share it with you. 🥰  I LOVE you, thanks for the support, always, and without further ado, let’s get started!⭐️ Continue reading “My Favorite Books of the Year so far | 2020 ⭐️”

Synopsis


Echo Brown is a wizard from the East Side, where apartments are small and parents suffer addictions to the white rocks. Yet there is magic . . . everywhere. New portals begin to open when Echo transfers to the rich school on the West Side, and an insightful teacher becomes a pivotal mentor. Each day, Echo travels between two worlds, leaving her brothers, her friends, and a piece of herself behind on the East Side. There are dangers to leaving behind the place that made you. Echo soon realizes there is pain flowing through everyone around her, and a black veil of depression threatens to undo everything she’s worked for.

Heavily autobiographical and infused with magical realism, Black Girl Unlimited fearlessly explores the intersections of poverty, sexual violence, depression, racism, and sexism—all through the arc of a transcendent coming-of-age.

A powerful memoir for fans of Piecing Me Together by Renee Watson and American Street by Ibi Zoboi.
