May Wrap Up | Unexpected Readings, A Popular Trilogy & Great Sequels 🍂

🍂 Hi guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings.❤️ Today I bring you a new post… my May Wrap Up! where I’ll tell you ALL about my readings of the month. May was a pretty good month in terms of reading, something crazy and messy, yes, but pretty good, but on the other hand not so good in mental terms, you know? I think that finally, the quarantine has come to me, I’m a super conscious person about everything that’s happening in the world, but I’ve never felt fear or anxiety about it, I try to be in a more relaxed state of mind and most of the time, has worked well, but this May I got a little out of control, I must confess. 😢 I’m always the first to tell you to prioritize your mental health over anything else, so obviously, I did that, and I found much comfort and support in YOU, even when you may not even know this, I LOVE and it brings me a lot of peace and positive energy to read your comments and interact with all of you in general, this is a community that always brings me good things, so THANK YOU, for being there for me to support me, love me and accept me. Blogging was wonderful, the best medicine is to do what you love, without a doubt. ❤️ 


On the other hand, even though I’ve struggled a bit mentally, incredibly and contrary it has been one of the most creative months for me. I feel that maybe this is my point of view, but I’m very happy with the content of my blog this month, I’m 100% satisfied with it and I’m very happy to see the response that you’ve had to each post, it has been wonderful, really It brings me a lot of satisfaction and makes me SO SO happy.  👏🏻 I hope to keep this pace of creation and ideas for June too, just in case I always write everything that comes to my mind, so I hope I already have a reserve of ideas for emergency lol. As always THANKS for your support for my blog and, especially this month, thanks to so many of you for sharing your experiences with your blogs in my discussion post, it really means a lot to me that you can open up and express your thoughts and feelings with me and with all of us.  😍  I’m sure that each comment in that post could be a word of encouragement for someone else and that makes me very happy! 💃🏻

In terms of readings, being honest with you I expected to read much more, but you know, sometimes you don’t feel like reading and I accepted this, and I didn’t mean to force it, but I did expect to do a better job. Even so, it wasn’t a bad month at all and I really enjoyed everything that I read, in fact, there’s no a single book that I didn’t like this month, so that’s even more important than quantity (quality over quantity, always!)  👍🏻 
I read a super famous and super loved trilogy and I’m very excited to share my thoughts with you, but basically was a very incredible read and I enjoyed it very much. On the other hand, I read a couple of sequels or series continuations, and they were great too, lots of action in them and wonderful characters & last but not least, I had the joy of reading an ARC of a book that’s probably among my favorites this year… It was wonderful, it touched my heart and although I hadn’t planned to read it, it was worth it.  😊 
I hope you decide to stay with me during this post and get to know each of my readings, statistics, and some of my favorite posts. 🥰 I hope you enjoy it and without further ado, let’s get started! 🍂 Continue reading “May Wrap Up | Unexpected Readings, A Popular Trilogy & Great Sequels 🍂”

Synopsis


One thousand years ago, a wish was made to the Harbinger of Change and a sword of rage and lightning was forged. Kamigoroshi. The Godslayer. It had one task: to seal away the powerful demon Hakaimono.

Now he has broken free.

Kitsune shapeshifter Yumeko has one task: to take her piece of the ancient and powerful scroll to the Steel Feather temple in order to prevent the summoning of the Harbinger of Change, the great Kami Dragon who will grant one wish to whomever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers. But she has a new enemy now. The demon Hakaimono, who for centuries was trapped in a cursed sword, has escaped and possessed the boy she thought would protect her, Kage Tatsumi of the Shadow Clan.

Hakaimono has done the unthinkable and joined forces with the Master of Demons in order to break the curse of the sword and set himself free. To overthrow the empire and cover the land in darkness, they need one thing: the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers. As the paths of Yumeko and the possessed Tatsumi cross once again, the entire empire will be thrown into chaos.

April Wrap Up 🍂 | OWLs Magical Readathon 2020 💛

April Wrap Up 🍂 | OWLs Magical Readathon 2020 💛

🍂 Hi guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings.❤️ Today I bring you a new post… my April Wrap Up! where I’ll tell you ALL about my readings of the month. As many of you know, this month was all about the OWLs, a wonderful Harry Potter-inspired readathon where we followed a series of promp to successfully graduates of our magical career. If you want to know more about it, you can check my TBR where ALL the information is. 😊 As always, I had an incredible time participating, I think it’s one of the most fun and entertaining readathons to participate, not only do I love reading and passing classes, but I also love to see what others are reading and what career or careers they have chosen to follow. A super beautiful community is formed, where everyone interacts and makes the experience a thousand times better, so YES, it was incredible and I’m happy that I managed to complete it and managed to read each of the books that were in my TBR, with the exception of one that it’s a DNF, but I’m counting it anyway because I really tried. 👍🏻 In addition to this, I’ve had one more week to read what I wanted, which is incredible it never happens to me lol, but I decided to take it easy, especially since I want to read a lot next month, so I don’t want to get overwhelmed, and I really liked having time to rest and doing other things, also feels nice and at times as stressful as these are necessary. Anyway, I ended up grabbing something else to read, but I’ll tell you more about that later. 🥰


I don’t want to spend a single month of this year without thanking you for your support and unconditional love that you show me in each of my posts, I’ll be forever grateful to be able to live this adventure with so many wonderful people! 😭 ❤️ Honestly this year I haven’t been paying much attention to my statistics like in 2019, which is proving to be very healthy for me, I’m a quite organized person and I’m very passionate about my projects, so of course, I want this beautiful project to grow and do well, but I’m focusing much more on improving my content and being able to express myself better, learn and be able to give you the best of myself and I think that it’s being incredibly powerful and healing, I’m enjoying much more blogging this 2020, it feels incredible. 😍 I’ve been thinking about making a discussion post soon on these topics and give you some tips if you’re interested and talking about blogging, pressure, stress but also the benefits that I’ve experienced having the blog and being part of the community, I’ll build something soon and I’m excited to continue sharing with you. I LOVE YOU and I wish you all the success with your projects. 🎉

As for my readings, I’m trying this year to be quite open to reading many different genres, that’s why I’ve been putting together mini TBRs, which I love, and this month, I’ve had a variety of interesting genres, so I’m pleased. I enjoyed almost everything I read, which makes me feel very fulfilled and happy, I’ve read one of my favorite authors and I haven’t been disappointed, she’s fantastic, I almost cried with a short novel that I found very powerful, I’ve read adorable novels graphics, and I discovered that I can read heavier and descriptive writing style and still enjoy the process. 😄
I hope you decide to stay and you’ll be able to know my thoughts about each one of these books, but I’ll also share with you as always my favorite blog posts and some fun statistics. So without further ado, let’s get started! 🍂

Synopsis


One thousand years ago, the great Kami Dragon was summoned to grant a single terrible wish—and the land of Iwagoto was plunged into an age of darkness and chaos.

Now, for whoever holds the Scroll of a Thousand Prayers, a new wish will be granted. A new age is about to dawn.

Raised by monks in the isolated Silent Winds temple, Yumeko has trained all her life to hide her yokai nature. Half kitsune, half human, her skill with illusion is matched only by her penchant for mischief. Until the day her home is burned to the ground, her adoptive family is brutally slain and she is forced to flee for her life with the temple’s greatest treasure—one part of the ancient scroll.

There are many who would claim the dragon’s wish for their own. Kage Tatsumi, a mysterious samurai of the Shadow Clan, is one such hunter, under orders to retrieve the scroll…at any cost. Fate brings Kage and Yumeko together. With a promise to lead him to the scroll, an uneasy alliance is formed, offering Yumeko her best hope for survival. But he seeks what she has hidden away, and her deception could ultimately tear them both apart.

With an army of demons at her heels and the unlikeliest of allies at her side, Yumeko’s secrets are more than a matter of life or death. They are the key to the fate of the world itself.
