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 ❄️”

June TBR | #MakeYourMythTaker Readathon & Catching up with my Own Challenges 🍂

June TBR | #MakeYourMythTaker Readathon & Catching up with my Own Challenges 🍂

🍂 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 June. Well, another month and other new challenges to undertake, I’m excited for June, I feel it will be THE month, where I’ll finally read everything I plan. 👏🏻 In general, I’m very good at following my TBR, but last month I was messy with that, so this month I hope I can stick to my plans, I know I can do it! I wasn’t planning, though, to participate in anything this month… BUT I found many incredible readathons taking place in June, some of you let me know of many readathons through Twitter, which I’m very thankful for, and I decided to give one of them a chance to have a little fun while reading, also everything fits perfectly with my book pile.


 

So, the readathon I’ve chosen is Make Your Myth-Taker readathon, which I absolutely adore because it’s amazing, fun, and super original. 😍  It’s created by Ashleigh from A Frolic Through Fiction and takes place throughout the whole month of June, for more information better explained and more detailed I’ll leave you here the video of the announcement with everything you need to know. In summary, this readathon is based on choosing a fictional character and following a series of promps to become her/him. There are 4 groups: Warrior, Royal Court, Rogue & Sorcerer, of these each group there are 4 characters from which you can choose one or several as you want, to follow her/him path. Later I will show you which character and which group I’ve chosen to be, but yes! I think it will be a lot of fun and I hope that many people will join!  🌟 

 

 


On the other hand, I also want to incorporate in this challenge books that are on my lists of mini-TBRs for this year, you know that I want to try to read more sci-fi, so I have incorporated one of which I don’t know much, but I know that it’s very loved and recognized. I try reading it once, but it didn’t work, so it’s also like a second-chance reading. 🚀
In addition, as always, I’ll be incorporating an ARC, for which I will be participating in the blog tour  📚 
And last but not least, I’m about to finish reading my 2020 5-star predictions, so here you’ll also see another one that I’ll be trying, SUPER EXCITED because honestly, I feel that I’ll love this book, the premise sounds amazing to me and I’ve heard the best things. 😄 
Apart from all this, I really want to try to read much more of the books that I’ll be putting and sharing with you in this post. I’ve decided that it feels good for me this month to try to follow my mood and choose something during the month simply without planning it, surely from my physical TBR, so I’ll be sharing it later and maybe you can even help me choose other books. I hope this isn’t confusing for you, but I hope it works for me and somehow be more relaxing and be able to read a little more of just what I feel at the moment, you know?  🥰 
So I don’t want to waste any more time, I’m very excited to share my plans for this month with you and I hope you enjoy it, LOVE YOU FOREVER! 🍂  Continue reading “June TBR | #MakeYourMythTaker Readathon & Catching up with my Own Challenges 🍂”

March Wrap Up | Amazing Sequels, An Unexpected Disappointment & An Addictive Trilogy 🍂

March Wrap Up | Amazing Sequels, An Unexpected Disappointment & An Addictive Trilogy 🍂

🍂 Hi guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings.❤️ Today I bring you a new post… my March Wrap Up! where I’ll tell you ALL about my readings of the month. I always feel SO excited and with such beautiful energy sharing with you my reading month, I love writing these posts and I hope you like reading them too. Well, this was an incredible month for me in terms of reading, I read A LOT of books that I really loved, which doesn’t happen to me every month since I’m quite demanding with my ratings, but this month was really great for me, I feel super pleased with myself for everything I’ve read, so let’s celebrate together! YAY! 🎉 
Before continuing to tell you a little about my readings, you know that this month of March has been very intense in general, with the issue of Covid-19 that unfortunately has affected almost all the countries of the world, so obviously It’s a very stressful and difficult month in general for all of us. I tend to be very positive in my life and I really like being at home, so I can’t complain about being at home, but I’ve missed my family a lot and I still do because I can’t see them, so that has affected me a lot, on the other hand, I know that staying at home is the best, healthiest and safest right now. I LOVE you and I send you all my energy of absolute love wherever you are, I promise that everything will be fine very soon. 🥰


As always I can’t leave another month of this year without thanking you for your unconditional support with me and with my blog, you don’t know how much it means to me, your support, your likes, your comments, all that encourages me to improve every day to only bring you the best and also fills my soul and makes me extremely happy, so THANK YOU SO SO MUCH. 😍 On the other hand, OMG, I’ve had so many problems with WordPress, in general I like it very much, I’ve never had problems that I haven’t been able to solve, but this month has been hell, some of my posts were published but they never appeared in the reader, most of you didn’t see them, then I had some problems with the editor and it was all very stressful and frustrating. I hope that WordPress will soon solve this kind of thing, so we can create peace and with confidence. And despite these technical problems you’ve still supported me and I’ve been posting my content a bit on twitter and you have shown me a lot of support so thank you, my beautiful friends, seriously, I have no words, I’m just blessed to have you! ❤️ 😭

Well, leaving all those negative things aside for a while, I want to focus on the good of this month, so I’ll focus on my reading. I read all the books I had in my TBR, with the exception of one, so that’s super successful for me.  👏🏻 
I read a couple of sequels that I loved with all my heart, they met and even exceeded my expectations, so I have nothing but wonders to say about them. This month also, it was my first time participating in a blog tour and I had a lot of fun, I’m very grateful, it’s a great experience and I also ended up enjoying the book a lot, despite the fact that it’s a genre that I don’t read since a while ago. 😊 
On the other hand, I have a super disappointing reading for me, especially because I thought I would love that book, so I’m sad! I’ll tell you a little more about it later. #unpopularopinionALERT
And last but not least, I’m continuing with my personal challenge of reading YA well-known old trilogies/series, I’m having a lot of fun with this challenge and this time it has been super successful, I adored what I read so I’m super excited to talk to you more about it. 😍 

Now, let’s stop with this long introduction that I always love to do 😅 , and let’s jump directly to the important thing, I’m very happy to share another month with you, so without further ado, I hope you can find some interesting reading here & let’s begin! 🍂 Continue reading “March Wrap Up | Amazing Sequels, An Unexpected Disappointment & An Addictive Trilogy 🍂”

Synopsis


Six years ago, Grey Malteer was attacked by creatures he thought couldn’t possibly exist. They repeated a word, calling him a name he’d never heard before…Venator. Since then, his life has been a hellhole of secrecy—hiding old pain alongside strange new abilities.

Rune Jenkins has an itch, as she calls it, but it’s more than that. It’s an anger that builds up like the inside of a boiler whenever she’s around anything remotely supernatural. The pressure is growing steadily worse and she can’t understand why. All she knows is—her control is slipping.

By order of an unknown council Grey and Rune are pulled through a portal in the St. Louis arch, landing them in an alternate dimension where creatures of myth and legend exist. A realm that calls them, Venators.

Made up of centuries old fae, vampires, werewolves, elves and succubi the council’s corrupt nature becomes obvious as they seek to wield the newly returned Venators as weapons. Wedged in an impossible position, Grey and Rune must decide their fate—do they go against the council’s wishes and help the innocents of this unforgiving land, or face the possibility of execution by the council.
