Double ARC Review | This Is Not the Jess Show 📽 & The Afterlife of the Party 🧛

 🌟 Hi bookish family! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day & a GREAT weekend, today I’m more than happy to bring you a double review of my most recent readings.❤️ I love and it’s a pleasure to be able to bring you a double review of two ARCs that I’ve read recently, but in addition to sharing my opinion you know that it’s always a pleasure to meet yours, so don’t hesitate to let me know everything in the comments, not only what you think about these books in particular, but also tell me a little about what you’ll be reading this week, it’s always fun to know. 😊
So, as I said, this time I bring you two ARCs from 2021, that I read during the month of March, both books have been provided to me by publishers via NetGalley so I’m super grateful. 🥰
One of these books is a teen drama full of vampires and supernatural creatures 🧛& on the other hand, we have a story with elements of sci-fi, but also focused on the contemporary side that gives us a new perspective on ambition and human consciousness. 📽 
One of them a unique idea with a solid execution although kind of precipitated & the other a story that could be defined as crazy and funny, but at the same time, it’s everywhere without a clear path to follow.
I’m very excited to tell you EVERYTHING about these books! So without further ado, make yourself comfortable, prepare your favorite drink & let’s get started!

March Wrap Up & April TBR | I Finally Read SOME BOOKS! | Mini-Spooky Book List & Some 5-star Predictions 🍂

 🍂 Hi, guys, I hope you’re having a beautiful day, full of good readings & incredible moments!! ❤️ SO happy to have a moment to be able to share with you everything that I’ve been reading in the month of March plus, everything that I plan and will try to read during this month of April. 🌟 Every time I have the chance to sit down to write a post this year it’s like a double blessing since I don’t have much time on my hands, so I’m really happy to be here guys, as always! So this month has been super positive for me in terms of reading, but we will talk about it a little later, now I wanted to take the space to thank you for the support you have given me as a person and also to the blog this month, it means a lot. Especially with respect to my “DEFINITIVE BOOK BLOGGER LIST which I must say I’m very proud of, I think tourn out beautiful and also quite organized which I intended, also I’m very pleased that more of you can interact and support each other thanks to this list, and also share each other contents, give likes, and comment, I think that after all the controversy that has occurred recently regarding how little we are valued as book bloggers in the bookish community in general, we need more love 🥰, so this has been the perfect time to publish the list and thus show my support and be able to amplify our voices in some way, I know that we’re brilliant, we’re valuable and we do incredible and hard work with our contents so without a doubt, we deserve better and don’t let anyone make you think otherwise.  👏🏻

In terms of reading this March has been great! 😄 in fact much better than my previous months, maybe it doesn’t seem that I read SO MUCH to you but I did, in fact, I’ve read 5 books last month, most of them good but not impressive books, only one of them has really managed to conquer me completely, but I’m super excited to share my thoughts with you on each of these books. 😊 Some of them with dark tones, with a bit of mystery, on the other hand, a bit of magic in contemporary stories, which I usually enjoy a lot, and finally a few paranormal elements, as well. I really feel super proud to have been able to read more than two books lol, it’s a great achievement so let’s celebrate together!! 🎉 I hope to read even more, though, in April *fingers crossed*


Before continuing I wanted to apologize because I know that I’m super late with my reviews of these books, some I’ve already reviewed, but I still need to review most of them, so I’m sorry, I tend to be very punctual with my reviews but that’s fine, life is like that now, and soon I’ll bring you some double reviews maybe and a full one for my favorite book of the month. So I’ll probably be brief here because I want to leave some of my feelings & thoughts for the reviews.❤️ 


For this month my plans are basically reading 😂 , aren’t those our plans every month, thought?! SHOCK! but not, seriously, I want to read, I’m feeling more and more eager to dedicate more time to my reading, and feeling that motivation again makes me happy, so I’ll take advantage of it while it lasts 🤓. I’ll surely be starting a new series, reading some ARCs as always & especially with the cold weather coming to my city hand in hand with autumn, I feel ready to read some spooky/creepy or perhaps suspense/mystery kind of books, something with a weird and atmospheric vibe. 🌲 So I’ll have a mini list to share with you, in addition to that within that list, I’ll be including some of my 5-star predictions to make it more fun. So I hope this is a very good month for EVERYONE & without further ado, I LOVE YOU ❤️, I hope you enjoy the post, let me know everything in the comments, and LET’S GET STARTED! 🍂

Book Bloggers Appreciation | February & March 2021 💻

 💫 Hi, my beautiful friends, I hope you’re having the most amazing day.❤️ This is a blog post series I’ve been doing all of 2020 and I plan to do it again during 2021, because I just love it, and it’s all about highlighting a series of blog posts from around the book blogger community, that I enjoyed reading or that I think are amazing and deserve more love and recognition. With this, I hope to be able to somehow support other book bloggers on a monthly basis, and I also hope you can find new book blogs to follow or content that interests you or help you.
Maybe the look of this post will be simpler to what you usually see on the blog, but I like this idea and it’s honestly with the simple purpose of supporting each other more and we can find new content in a simple and organized way.
I don’t have a certain amount to I’m highlighting per month, they’re just posts I’ve come across with and I think they’re INCREDIBLE, so I want to share them with you all. 👏🏻  I used to make a small top 5 with my favorite posts of the month, but I realized that I had to delete many posts to be able to select only 5, and I don’t think it’s fair, there are SO many wonderful posts and everyone deserves the same love and recognition, so that’s why I decided to make this post apart
 😊

The Definitive Book Blogger List 📢

 📢 Hi, friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful day full of the best readings & beautiful moments.❤️ SO excited and SO happy to be presenting you today a project that I’ve been working on for some months now, and it’s THE DEFINITIVE BOOK BLOGGER LIST.  🎉 This small space on the internet within my blog aims and is made with the intention of celebrating our work as bloggers amplifying the voices in order to give us more support among ourselves with each of our projects. (More info about this project idea HERE)
The work of book bloggers is worthy of greater respect, admiration, and recognition, that’s what has prompted me in the first place to create this list of which many wonderful book bloggers and beautiful people have wanted to participate, which makes me more than happy. 😍 
I hope from the bottom of my heart that we can all contribute a little bit to share the list as much as we can in each of our blogs as well as in other social networks so that we can all visit each other and support each other in a daily basis.
For my part, I’ll not only be sharing this list as much as I can, but I’ve decided to attach it to the end of each of my posts from now on so we’ll all have direct access to it. 👏🏻
👏🏻 
This is a project that I’m really excited to do, I LOVE supporting our beautiful community that has given me so much during these years as a blogger, so this is also in some way another example of my pure and infinite gratitude to every single one of you. 🥰 
So to finish I hope you decide to support this list by sharing it on your blogs, as I mentioned before, as well as visiting some posts, commenting, giving likes, and basically supporting each other in our respective creative spaces.

Double Book Review | Bright Burning Stars 💫 & The House in the Cerulean Sea 🌊

 🌟 Hi bookish family! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day & a GREAT weekend, today I’m more than happy to bring you a double review of my most recent readings. ❤️ You know that I LOVE to share all my opinions with you in the most honest way, and above all, I love that we can exchange opinions respectfully, so don’t hesitate to let me know your thoughts in the comments and we can chat a little about it, I also want to know what you’ve been reading this last week & what books accompany you this weekend!!! 😍
As I was saying, I’ll be reviewing two books, one of them is an ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review, for which I’m deeply grateful,
in this book we enter the world of a ballet competition and explored its darkest side 🩰 & the other one is my own choice, a book with a lot of hype which I had only heard the most incredible things about, where we meet a super diverse group of characters while we surround ourselves with a magical landscape. 🌅 I think that one of these stories may have been a totally different experience than I expected, while the other exceeded my expectations. 😊
I’m very excited to tell you EVERYTHING about these books! 👏🏻 So without further ado, make yourself comfortable, prepare your favorite drink & let’s get started!

February Wrap Up & March TBR | The Month Where I Challenge Myself to Read More! ☀️

☀️ Hi, guys, I hope you’re having a beautiful day, full of good readings & incredible moments!! ❤️ SO happy to have a moment to be able to share with you everything that I’ve been reading in the month of February plus, everything that I plan and will try to read during this month of March. 🌟  I feel super excited to share another post with you this week, I know I’ve been the worst book blogger this year so far lol, I have no time for anything other than to dedicate myself to my business, and I really feel blessed by the opportunities I’m having in my personal life and the growth of my business is wonderful, I’m very happy with that, guys, but I still feel a little guilty at times for not being able to give you all the content and all the posts that I would like, so I’M SO SORRY! You know that I always think about my blog and you’re wonderful people, so I’ll always return here, which is my safe and favorite place in the world. 🥰 So, my loves, I’ll not be able to upload posts as much as usual but on my days off I’ll be here bringing you new and I hope, fun bookish content, so that we can both enjoy. 🥺

I had a very nice birthday, working, but at the same time I went to dinner with my loved ones and read ALL your beautiful comments, I haven’t had time to answer them yet, but I plan to do it very soon, I LOVE to see you’re there for me and your words made my day even better. 🥳 I have to tell you I’m SO excited about Shadow & Bone’s trailer 🦌, GUYS!!! I’m freaking out! I can’t wait to watch the series, I was so afraid that was kind of cheap, you know? but after seeing that trailer fragment… I’m in shock, I didn’t think it looked SO SPECTACULAR, and now I’m even more excited, I think the characters are perfect and the scenes are just as I imagined them. 😭  WHAT A GOOD TIME TO BE A GRISHA WORLD FAN!! PS: Have you seen Ben Barnes as The Darkling? SO GOOD!! & OMG, Jessie is the perfect Alina as much as Freddy is the perfect Kaz, and I won’t even mention how perfect Amita is as Inej!! my favorite characters looking beautiful! 💕


In other news, besides being absolutely excited about the Shadow & Bone TV series, I’ve also read a little, I haven’t even come close to reading what I wanted, but hey, I’m not going to complain anymore, at least I’ve read something, right? And that’s already good, also both readings have been very beautiful and have had precious messages that I’m dying to share with you. As you know, I’m trying to get used to my new schedules, so I knew it would take me a while, but also I blame my glasses this time😅, it turns out that they broke and I was devastated because reading is very difficult for me without them, I don’t have a lot of magnification on my glasses, but they’re perfect for reading without my head starting to hurt, you know? So it was a difficult thing to do, even when I had a little time. SO SO SO… My beautiful boyfriend gave me an INCREDIBLE pair of gold glasses for my birthday, so now I just have to go to the doctor, make new glasses for them, and then I’ll be ready to read a little more this month! YAY!! 😍😍 Do you wear reading glasses? Tell me, I’m interested in knowing.

I realized that the best way to organize myself this month is in fact to set small goals to achieve and thus be able to read more, also other things like visiting more blogs, answering comments, and that kind of thing. I’ll try to make my goals privately, which means, I’ll not share them here, I’ll do an experiment to see how it goes and if this new system works for me, then I’ll be sharing it with you, of course, so maybe you can also implement it in your days. 👏🏻 👏🏻  I want to THANK YOU very much for your support with my discussion post, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE writing them, makes me happy and gives me a lot of gratification to share with you and to exchange experiences, so THANK YOU, really, for trusting me and, for your beautiful and encouraging comments.❤️❤️ 
So, not to make this introduction longer, as I always do lol,
my reading plan for the month is basically very similar to the previous one, but I’ll add a couple more books replacing the books that I already read, I’m sorry if I’m repetitive, but I really want to read these books that I couldn’t read in February, so let’s do this! 🤩 I’m excited to share it with you & that you share with me your plans for this month too. I love you deeply, you’re extremely valuable, always remember that 🌹 & without further ado, let’s get started! ☀️
