Synopsis


Be careful of the dark, dark wood…

Especially the woods surrounding the town of Fir Haven. Some say these woods are magical. Haunted, even.

Rumored to be a witch, only Nora Walker knows the truth. She and the Walker women before her have always shared a special connection with the woods. And it’s this special connection that leads Nora to Oliver Huntsman—the same boy who disappeared from the Camp for Wayward Boys weeks ago—and in the middle of the worst snowstorm in years. He should be dead, but here he is alive, and left in the woods with no memory of the time he’d been missing.

But Nora can feel an uneasy shift in the woods at Oliver’s presence. And it’s not too long after that Nora realizes she has no choice but to unearth the truth behind how the boy she has come to care so deeply about survived his time in the forest, and what led him there in the first place. What Nora doesn’t know, though, is that Oliver has secrets of his own—secrets he’ll do anything to keep buried, because as it turns out, he wasn’t the only one to have gone missing on that fateful night all those weeks ago.

For as long as there have been fairy tales, we have been warned to fear what lies within the dark, dark woods and in Winterwood, New York Times bestselling author Shea Ernshaw, shows us why.

From New York Times bestselling author of The Wicked Deep comes a haunting romance perfect for fans of Practical Magic, where dark fairy tales and enchanted folklore collide after a boy, believed to be missing, emerges from the magical woods—and falls in love with the witch determined to unravel his secrets.

February Wrap Up | Witchy Reads, Out of my Comfort Zone & First DNF of the year 🎍

February Wrap Up | Witchy Reads, Out of my Comfort Zone & First DNF of the year 🎍

🎍 Hi guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings.❤️ Today I bring you a new post… my February Wrap Up! where I’ll tell you ALL about my readings of the month. I think this has been a pretty good month, but it happened too fast for my taste, I usually enjoy February a lot because it’s the birthday month and everything feels very exciting, but on the other hand, it may be good a good thing that was a fast month because I’m so ready for the colder seasons to come, I’m in need of my beautiful autumn, I can’t wait! 🍂 

As I said, it was my birthday on February 22 🎊, I turned 26, I have a birthday post if you want to check it out, I’m leaving it HERE. So, yeah! has been a truly beautiful month, I’ve spent time with my family and I concluded that I’ve never I felt better than right now, so I can’t complain I had a very nice day with my boyfriend and my loved ones & besides all that, I’m SO SO blessed to have each one of you in my life, I’ve never had so many comments of love and beautiful wishes on my birthday before!! 🥰  It makes me want to cry because it’s really a blessing, you made me feel so special and loved, and you don’t know how much it means to me to have you, SO SO happy to be part of this beautiful community. Thank you, guys! 😭  *feeling shy*

My month was quite good in terms of reading, you’ll see more as always in my statistics, but basically, I read a normal amount for me and I’ve had a couple of books that I’ve loved with all my heart, in general, I enjoyed almost everything I read, which is always a good thing. This year I’m undoubtedly prioritizing reading things that I think I’d like or I’m very curious about, I want to focus more on that instead of the amount I read in itself, you know? 👏🏻 
I participate in the #Februwitchy I had a lot of fun and I read 2 of my favorite books of the year so far thanks to this, so super happy to have participated, I read only two books for the read-a-thon but it’s ok, I just wanted to be part, such a great idea to read about witches, which is something that I LOVE so much. 🧙‍♀️ Spoiler Alert! I’m in fact writing about witches in my own project, so you can imagine how passionate I am.
Then I also read a romance with a lot of hype and pick a book from my TBR Jar, which is full with your choices from my TBR LOWS & HIGHS posts, and you’ll see how it went, but I’m glad to be doing this, is a way to read books that have been in my TBR forever.
Plus, I have a couple of ARCs to talk to you about, one of them was an amazing surprise, probably a great revelation of this 2020. 😍  

Super excited to talk to you about ALL these readings and share my thoughts, I feel so energized today, for some reason, I think I’m feeling the March vibes in me(? lol … Now, Sofi stops talking & Let’s START!, I hope you enjoy. 🎍 Continue reading “February Wrap Up | Witchy Reads, Out of my Comfort Zone & First DNF of the year 🎍”

February TBR | First TBR Jar Pick of the Year, ARCs & Witchy Reads 🎍

February TBR | First TBR Jar Pick of the Year, ARCs & Witchy Reads 🎍

 🎍 Hi, my beautiful bookish friends! I hope you’re having the most incredible day with the best readings.❤️ Today I bring you a new Monthly TBR, where I share with you my reading plans for the month of February. This is a super special month for me because it’s my birthday month! YAY! 🎊 I’ve never been a fan of celebrating my birthdays, but this year I feel so blessed with so many good things in my life that I’m really super excited about it and besides being able to celebrate my 26 years with you, nothing makes me happier! 😭 And for this special month, I’ve planned a special stack of books to enjoy and share with you.
I think that seeing the whole picture I had a very good January in readings, I’ve read a lot, I’ve almost completed my TBR and I’ve also reached a record for me in pages read, so I’m very excited to continue with that streak during the year and obviously in this February.

Speaking about my readings, I’m super excited to tell you that I’ll be participating in the #Februwitchy readathon hosted by Asha | A Cat, A Book, and A Cup Of Tea | This readathon takes place throughout the month of February and there’s no specific rule you just have to read books about witches 🧙‍♀️ , and it works both if it has the name witch in the title as if it’s specifically about witches, you know? I leave the link in case you’re interested and want to know more, all you have to do is sing up in a Google Doc, the one that Asha provides you and there you can add your TBR and your books read during the month. It will be a lot of fun! so if you like witches I recommend you check it out. Personally, I’ll not be reading ONLY about witches, but I do have a small stack that has been reserved to participate because you know that I LOVE witches 👏🏻 and there are several books that I’ve been wanting to read for a while, so it’s perfect, I’m doing this as a gift for myself in my birthday month & nothing can be better. 😍 

Then I also have a couple of ARCs, as always, which I feel absolutely blessed to be able to read before their release date & in addition to ALL of this, I have a book that I’ve been wanting to read for months now, with another one that I’ve chosen from my TBR Jar. As you know, I’ve started doing the Lows & Highs posts every Sunday in order to clean my TBR and from there you have chosen a book every week, a book that has gone directly to my TBR Jar, so from there I have chosen one for the month, and I’m a little scared about it, but I think it will be fun to know what I think and share it with you. 😊  So without further ado, I want to jump right into to show you everything I plan to read in the month of February, I hope you enjoy it and thanks for being there ALWAYS 💞, you’re amazing. 🎍 Continue reading “February TBR | First TBR Jar Pick of the Year, ARCs & Witchy Reads 🎍”

Top 5 | 5-Star Book Predictions | 2020 Edition 🌿

Top 5 | 5-Star Book Predictions | 2020 Edition 🌿

🌿 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the best day, surrounded by amazing readings.❤️ Today I decided to start the week with something fun, so I’ll try to guess what books will be 5 stars for me this year. I know I did one of these in the past, but it was a disaster and I ended up not reading any of those books, so this time I’ll make sure that the books I mention are books that I know I’ll be reading during the year and so at the end of 2020, I’ll be able to return with a post telling you all about it.  😊 
It’s quite difficult for me to give 5 stars, I tend to be quite demanding with my readings, but I still love this idea, I love to see it on videos and in other posts, so I thought it would be fun to do it myself. It’s also a great incentive to read these books since I’m dying of curiosity to know if they would eventually become 5 stars, even if it would end up being 4.5 stars, it would be wonderful for me.👏🏻
Super excited to share this list with you, each one of these books has a unique concept that resonates with me or I’ve read the authors in the past and I’ve loved their work, so that’s my justification. Now without further ado, let’s start! 🌿

💫 Hi guys, I hope you’re having a WONDERFUL day, today I’m super excited because I bring you a special post since I’ll be part of a series recommendations post/videos for what will be the long-awaited second part of the O.W.Ls., this is a Magical Read-A-Thon called N.E.W.Ts. 😍 If you have already participated in the first part then you know kind of what it’s about, but if you haven’t participated yet, like me lol, and you want to do this second part anyway, that’s AMAZING!, you can do it, no problems. I’m going to leave all the information in a link to the official video of the N.E.W.Ts. announcement on the Book Roast channel 💞, she’s INCREDIBLE, she has created a fantastic system for this read-a-thon, it’s full of interesting things, she has even created several documents explaining everything perfectly where you can get rid of all your doubts, and also you can go to the document where ALL the subjects and promps are, those you should follow according to the career you’ve already chosen. 😊
I’m so bad explaining things, I swear,it’s like a chip in my head turn off every time I try lol, that’s why I don’t want to even try to, it’s a very complex read-a-thon and it’s really well thought out, so please check the link that I leave for you above to get all the information 😅

I’m so excited and happy to participate in something so big in the community, which I feel blessed to belong to, I know that many people will participate and I can’t wait to share some recommendations with you. 💕
As there are many grades and promps, the created has thought that it would be a good idea to separate ourselves by groups according to our Hogwarts Houses, to bring you some recommendations. In my pot, as everyone knows, I’m Hufflepuff 💛, so I’ve had to bring some recs for Care of Magical Creatures, Herbology & Muggles Studies.👏🏻 Each of them has three different promps that you must fulfill in order to achieve your goal. So if you plan or want to take any of those grades, then this is the right place for you!
I’ll be recommending 18 books, I ‘ve decided to do 2 for each promp, so it will be more fun and you’ll also have more options to choose from 👍🏻
I’m SO EXCITED, so without more further ado, let’s start!
I hope you enjoy and can find a book to add to your TBR for this wonderful Read-A-Thon💫
