July Wrap Up & August TBR | Leaving my Reading Slump Behind, Plus: Exciting & Ambitious Reading Plan (Secret TBR Announcement!) ❄️

❄️ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful day filled with the best readings & obviously, I hope you all had a beautiful past month!❤️ Today I’ve returned with one of my favorite posts to share with you my Wrap Up of the month, where I tell you all about what I’ve read during the month of July, plus: What I’m going to read in the month of August!. I can’t believe it’s August already, guys! What’s going on? This 2021 is going by too fast, really, but well, we’ll have to take advantage of every moment then and, above all, give it our all with our readings… WE GOT THIS! 💪🏻 This is my first year since I started reading that I’m reading such a small amount of books, so in some way, it’s hard for me because I would love to read more. Still, on the other hand, I understand I’m prioritizing many other things, especially myself, you know? I’m choosing not to put unnecessary pressure on myself, and that also makes me feel proud and is something I recommend, without a doubt, so in summary, I’m okay reading little this year; the important thing is that I’ve found amazing readings so far, high-quality readings I sincerely appreciate, and I hope that continues to be so!!! 😍 
Before I start, I wanted to thank you very much for all the love and support; I told you that I was going through a difficult situation, I wasn’t feeling well, and I thank you deeply for the concern and the beautiful words you’ve had for me,
thank you SO much; you’ll always have an important place in my heart as my wonderful bookish family. 🥺 I feel much more positive about this month, and I know that everything will be more than fine not only for me but for you too. 🥰

Today’s post is going to be a little bit different than usual, this time I’ve chosen not to show you entirely my whole plan for this month, as I’ll be doing another post about it, which I’ll tell you a little bit more about at the end of this post, I hope you’re as excited as I am because this will involve you in some way. I think that’s super fun; I can’t wait. 🙌🏻 🙌🏻 I wanted to do something different, too, because I just came off a reading slump, and we all know they’re the worst, so I wanted to keep myself motivated to continue my reading enthusiasm, which has been coming back quite a bit during the month of July and that’s definitely the best news! 🌟 
So, this month I’ve read 3 whole books, almost 4; I would say I’m actually reading something right now, I’m about to finish it, though, but I’ll still be counting it for this mont
☺️; I hope that’s not cheating 😅. Anyway, I’ll be telling you more about it next. I’ve been re-reading, which I think is the best remedy for when you feel slumpy; I highly recommend it; it always works wonders with me, so obviously this time it worked too, and I’m back to that state I love so much when I’m really excited to pick up a book and read it, you know? I’ve also been reading new releases this past month, which I’m excited to tell you about, and another book I finished in July as well, and although I already share with you my thoughts, we’ll also go over it again in this post.

I hope you’re super comfortable sitting with your favorite drink and, of course, that you enjoy the post that I made with lots of love as always. As I mentioned before, I’ll be telling you a bit of what I’ve read in the month of July. Although I do plan to share some of my “possible reads,” I choose this time to mostly keep the little secret of what I’ll be reading in its entirety but still stay tuned because I’ll be announcing it with more details at the end of this post. 😊 Thank you so much for always being there for me, and without further ado, LET’S GET STARTED! ❄️

Top 5 | Books with Shocking & Impressive Writing Styles 🌪

 🌪 Hello friends, I hope you’re having a great day, full of the best reading! ❤️ Today as always, I’m super excited to bring you a new post to the blog, this time one dedicated to the authors of these books more than the books themselves, you know? 👏🏻 It will be about those books that impacted me a lot or left me blow away because of their outstanding and impressive writing styles, so because we’ll be talking about writing styles, we’ll talk about the talent that these authors have when creating stories, this time I’ll highlight five different authors and five of what I personally think are their best works so far. 😍 
This post will obviously be 100% my personal opinion, I know we all have different views about these authors and the books I’ll mention, and that’s fine, but I still wanted to make it clear.
In this case, I have unwittingly and unintentionally chosen five authors of whom I have already read more than one book, and I think that somehow that has made me really impressed with their level of writing, which has only been growing and evolving for the better. 😊
Besides that, I love these five stories, and I think they’re pretty heart-hitting, which I didn’t do on purpose either, lol, but I guess they’re my kind of book, so it makes sense that they’re the ones I’ve chosen. ⚡️ 

What do I mean by “Shocking Writing Styles”? 🤔 Well, with this, and as I already mentioned as my personal opinion, they’re those styles that leave me really impressed, and with that “WOW” feeling after reading them, you know? They’re those readings that make me feel almost present inside the stories and super close to the characters, those that invite me to get really involved with what’s happening and feel each situation like my own, you know? Those kinds of feelings of realism and engagement are, for me, feelings that only a very advanced and good writing style can achieve. 🙌🏻 🙌🏻 🙌🏻 Sometimes this kind of reading can take you through a lot of emotions even, and that’s a big plus for me, because I’m that kind of reader that likes to feel very intensely what’s happening when I read a book; otherwise it can still be an enjoyable and light reading, but it won’t have that same meaning for me.
As the last point and to start the post, I want to clarify that with all this, I don’t think that the lightest and funniest readings can’t have an incredible writing style; in fact, I don’t think it has anything to do with that, but most with the author’s personal style and their way of telling stories.
 🤩 

Now yes, without further ado, I hope you can find new readings to add to your TBR, readings that I hope will take you to travel incredible journeys, dream, love, cry and live unforgettable moments together with the characters. 🥰 I love YOU 💕, thanks for the love of always & now yes, I hope you enjoy it and LET’S BEGIN!!! 🌪

Top 10 | 5-Stars Worthy High-Fantasy Books ⚔️

⚔️ Hi, bookish family! how are you? hope you’re well, having a wonderful day and an even better week surrounded by the best reading.❤️ I’m SO excited and happy to bring you a new Top after quite a while, but this time also an extended Top with 10 books that besides blindly recommending, I think are worth the 5 stars. 😍 This would be practically the second part of a post I did earlier this year, which you can check out RIGHT HERE, where I share with you my Top 10: 5 Stars-Worthy Contemporary Books; post that I know you liked a lot and that makes me very happy 🥺, so I knew I needed to bring you the second part this time obviously, as I already mentioned, focusing on High-Fantasy books as such. The books I’ll mention below are books I obviously love with all my heart, they’re full of action and adventure, where these unique characters will have to take challenging paths and make difficult decisions to grow and achieve all their goals. All of this obviously takes place in 100% fantasy worlds where anything is possible from magic to monstrous beings, and from fantastical creatures to impossible and dark realms 🏰. Each one of them is unique and different, each one of them stands out in something for me and that’s why I decided to include them here, but I also wanted to include my reviews in case you want to check them out to know a little more in-depth my thoughts about each one of them. 🌟
Later on, I’m excited to maybe do a third part with books that I couldn’t include this time 😄, mostly because I feel they don’t really fit into the high-fantasy genre, but rather are contemporary stories with touches of fantasy, magic-realism, and paranormal, so soon I’ll be doing something similar with those books because it pained me to have to choose only 10 for this opportunity, so we’ll be doing more of these fun posts.
I hope you like the idea, you know
I LOVE to know what you think, so don’t be shy, let me know in the comments, what you think about these books, and if you have read them, I’m very interested to know! 😘
Now without further ado, super excited to share this post with you, I hope you like it as much as I do and of course, I hope you find new titles to add to your, I’m sure, infinite TBR. 👏🏻 
Now, without further ado, make yourself comfortable, grab your favorite drink (coffee for me, please) & LET’S GET STARTED!
⚔️ 

‼️ PS: Many of these books are part of a series, but I’ve decided to include here my favorite book within that series, you can always find my review on the firsts books on my blog, plus, I’m leaving the link to the whole series under the book covers.

Book Bloggers Appreciation | June 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’m doing 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

June Wrap Up & July TBR | Trying to get out of a Reading Slump: Re-Readings, Most Anticipated Books & 5 Star Predictions! ❄️

 ❄️ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful day filled with the best readings & obviously, I hope you all had a beautiful past month! ❤️ Today I’ve returned with one of my favorite posts to share with you my Wrap Up of the month, where I tell you all about what I’ve read during the month of June, plus: What I’m going to read in the month of July!. 🥰  I come from a very difficult month in personal terms, there have been significant changes in my life and I’m trying to get back to my center and to “normality” so to speak, so… no doubt, I’ve been super distracted and away from my reading. This month I have no excuses, I’ve read very little, but still I’m proud of myself and I’ll not be too hard on myself either because I know that sometimes life gets in the way and there are other things that you have to take care of, right? I wanted to share this with you, maybe at some point I would like to talk more in depth since my blog is a reflection of me, it’s always important for me to be honest and open, but always of course, respecting my time, so when I feel ready we’ll talk more about my life and what’s happening right now, for now I ask you to send me a lot of that beautiful energy that you always give me and everything will be fine, you know I’m very positive and that will not change. 🥺 🥺 🥺 


I wanted to start from the beginning telling you where I am, so you know and then leave it behind to continue, as always, with the best energy and all the enthusiasm that I always want to transmit with my blog.✨
I want to tell you that, on the other hand, this month has been great for me in terms of posts,
I think I’ve done my best and I’ve managed to upload more posts despite being busy, so YAY FOR ME! 🥳 I think next month I hope it will also be very good in terms of posts and content since I’ll have a little more free time to dedicate to my beloved space in the world. 😍 
In terms of reading, despite having a beautiful TBR planned all dedicated to Pride Month, I haven’t gotten to finish even one of those books (sad for ever), but I did get to read my two ARCs which is a good thing. I OBVIOUSLY want to read those books still, so I’ll plan something special soon to read them, maybe a 24hs reading or a personal readathon, like a challenge, it would be fun, I’ll be telling you more about it in the future. 😊 So yeah,
I’ve read 2 books, both, as I mentioned before, ARCs, and both Really Good, I really enjoyed them a lot, but besides telling you a little bit about them today, I also want to share with you that I’m in the middle of reading one book and I’m loving it! I hope I can finish it this month, so I can share my review, I really can’t wait. 👏🏻

Despite being in the middle of an interesting and unexpected Reading Slump (lol) I’m not going to let it beat me and I’ll be going into a fun challenge I’ve set for myself this month, I plan to not only read, of course, but I want to try to read a little variety within the following categories: Two Re-Reads, Two New Releases & Two 5-Star Predictions! 🙌🏻
I’m super excited to share this month with you and see how I’m doing in terms of reading, I’ll be putting 6 books on my TBR this month within the above categories and the challenge is to try to read each one of them. I‘ve proposed this to myself as I feel that in the previous months I’ve been neglecting my TBR, so I would like to refocus and also I think it’s a fun way to overcome my Reading Slump.
So wish me luck, I think I will need it! 😄

I don’t want to make this introduction any longer than it already is, I’m dying to share with you everything I’ll be reading as well as both ARCs I’ve read and my current reading. Thank you, thank you, thank you SO MUCH for the love, support and understanding of every day ❤️, you’re wonderful and don’t let anyone make you believe otherwise. I love YOU and without further ado, let’s begin! ❄️

⚡️ Hi, friends! how are you? what have you been doing? I hope you’re very well, enjoying the day surrounded by the best readings!.❤️ Today super excited, as every time I post lol, but this time I bring you two reviews that I was hoping to actually bring you for a while now and that I’ve finally been able to write, so here we are! Both books this time are ARCs, so first I want to take a second to thank the publishers and authors very much for sending me these copies in exchange for honest reviews. 😊 I’m more than happy because not only it’s a pleasure for me to talk a little about not-so-well-known books, but I’ve also adored BOTH! So, I really hope you decide to add them to your TBR to give them a chance sometime soon. Both are dark fantasy books, with unique worlds & supremely interesting characters, plus they both also have big plot twists and the writers are very addictive! 😍
