📔 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most beautiful day EVER & above all, that you’re enjoying your readings right now, which you always know I would love to know about in the comments.❤️ Today I’ve decided to come with a kind of different top 5, lately, I’ve been focusing on organizing the books that I already own in my physical and electronic TBR, therefore I’ve realized that I have several books in my physical TBR that are actually books with SO MANY pages, they’re really very large, they could easily be deadly weapons lol & although it seems crazy… they’re books that I really want to read 👏🏻 , but I’ve been putting them aside because they’re huge, and that intimidates me a bit. Now that I’m trying to be a more “organized” person or at least organized in the Sofi way, you know? I thought that it would be a good time to organize myself and share the process with you, cause you know I LOVE making lists to talk about with you. 😍
My goal is to share with you these huge but beautiful books I own, to know what you think about them since that helps me a lot and finally put them aside to prioritize them at some point, I’m thinking of putting together a floating shelf maybe, to put them all there and maybe I should at least read 2 or 3 of these beasts a year and I would feel better about myself! 😊
So I hope you like this idea, that maybe inspires you to organize your own shelves a bit as well, cause sometimes we must prioritize our babies with more pages and give them the attention they deserve. I know, my loves, they’re very intimidating, but we can do it! 🙌🏻
As always, I can’t start without first thanking you for the kind support you give me with each post & for the love I feel every day being part of this beautiful community, thank you from my heart 🥺 & now, without further ado, let’s get started! 📔
“Belief isn’t simply a thing for fair times and bright days…What is belief – what is faith – if you don’t continue in it after failure?…Anyone can believe in someone, or something that always succeeds…But failure…ah, now, that is hard to believe in, certainly and truly. Difficult enough to have value. Sometimes we just have to wait long enough…then we find out why exactly it was that we kept believing…There’s always another secret.”
In a world where ash falls from the sky, and mist dominates the night, an evil cloaks the land and stifles all life. The future of the empire rests on the shoulders of a troublemaker and his young apprentice. Together, can they fill the world with colour once more?

“She wondered whether there would ever come an hour in her life when she didn’t think of him — didn’t speak to him in her head, didn’t relive every moment they’d been together, didn’t long for his voice and his hands and his love. She had never dreamed of what it would feel like to love someone so much; of all the things that had astonished her in her adventures, that was what astonished her the most. She thought the tenderness it left in her heart was like a bruise that would never go away, but she would cherish it forever.”
Northern Lights introduces Lyra, an orphan, who lives in a parallel universe in which science, theology and magic are entwined.

In The Subtle Knife she is joined on her journey by Will, a boy who possesses a knife that can cut windows between worlds. As Lyra learns the truth about her parents and her prophesied destiny, the two young people are caught up in a war against celestial powers that ranges across many worlds and leads to a thrilling conclusion in The Amber Spyglass.
The epic story Pullman tells is not only a spellbinding adventure featuring armoured polar bears, magical devices, witches and daemons, it is also an audacious and profound re-imagining of Milton’s Paradise Lost. An utterly entrancing blend of metaphysical speculation and bravura storytelling, HIS DARK MATERIALS is a monumental and enduring achievement.

“It’s like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.”
My name is Kvothe.
I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. I burned down the town of Trebon. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in. I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep.
You may have heard of me.
So begins a tale unequaled in fantasy literature—the story of a hero told in his own voice. It is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man’s search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

IMPORTANT: Before finishing the post I wanted to tell you that it’s the first time that I write a post using the new WordPress block editor which is now the editor by default for everyone. I HATE this editor with all my heart and soul, it took me literally 4 hours to write this post since I couldn’t find a way to make it work, I even had to find out how to add images and I even had to add the spaces between each paragraph myself. This is why maybe my posts will look different from now on since I’m trying to work with this new thing and give it a real shot. In general, I’m good at adapting to changes, but this has been a super stressful post to write, and WordPress is forcing me to make the experience of doing something I love turn into something stressful, so I just want to let you know that, cause may change how often I post for now on. I LOVE YOU and you know that I LOVE blogging, so I won’t quit, soon I hope I can feel a little more comfortable with this, though. 😭
