 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Hi, my beautiful bookish family! โค๏ธ How have you been? I hope you’re doing great, from here I send you all my love and good energies for these moments ๐ŸŒŸ, especially to all the innocent people who are being affected by the current war, my heart and my thoughts are with all of you, I really hope everything gets better soon, the world has already gone through too much already.  ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป 
So guysโ€ฆ I’M BACK! I’m so happy and excited to resume my blog and bring back fun content, plus most of all I’ve missed you guys so much, the interactions I have with you were always a fun part of my days, plus I’ve missed all your beautiful blogs, which I’ll be checking out these days. ๐Ÿ˜Š 

This post is mostly to reconnect and catch up, I want to tell you a little bit about my life, my plans in general, but obviously, I also want to put myself in order and share with you my ideas for the blog, the content I’ll be doing and also of course, my plans as a reader, plus some books I’ve read these months that I want to tell you about. ๐Ÿฅฐ 

So, if this is the first time you’re here, welcome!ย ๐ŸŽ‰ I love having you and I hope you enjoy this new stage with me, and if you’ve been there since the beginning THANK YOU SO MUCH for that, from the bottom of my heart for the love, and support of all these wonderful years.ย ๐Ÿฅบย

A Farewell… For Now | Taking a Long Break from Blogging โค๏ธย 

Hi guys, how are you? I hope you’re having a great day surrounded by the best readings, & of course, I hope you had an amazing Christmas.… ๐Ÿฅฐย 
This is honestly a very different post, one that wasn’t on my schedule, one that I wasn’t planning to do, but as you know my priority is always to be honest with you, so today I have to share that I’ll be taking a blogging break of at least 4 months.๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป This is because my current job is taking a lot of my time and at another time I would have continued with the blog anyway but lately, I’ve been feeling a bit stressed to accomplish everything, you know? plus, some family issues are happening that I’ve told you about at some pointย ๐Ÿฅบ, and I don’t want to be in that place again where I feel almost obligated to do everything because in the long run, and more with an activity that we choose to do for enjoyment, love, and passion, it can cause lack of motivation and the last thing I want is to bring you content that I’m not proud ofโ€ฆ that’s not what I want to convey with my platform.ย ๐Ÿ˜“ So even though it’s a hard decision to make, I know that the right thing to do right now is to take care of my personal life and then come back more relaxed to really enjoy blogging 100% and be part of this beautiful and understanding community.ย ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

There is also something else. This job where I currently am, is not the job that I hope to have permanently, but it’s one that I use as a means to save money and this money has a bigger purpose and I want to share it with you as well. As long as the pandemic and world health issues allow us, we’ll be moving, with my boyfriend Milo, from Argentina to Sweden next year (Stockholm, to be more precise) this will not be our final destination, but it will be a place where we’ll settle down for a while to work.โ„๏ธ This is really a huge change in our lives, a leap of faith that we want to make in order to grow and have more economic possibilities and a better lifestyle in general, not only for us but also for our families. ๐Ÿ˜Š If you yourself are Latina or know a little about Latin America you know that we often have to emigrate to look for better lives and it’s an absolute change since I’m very close to my family, but at the same time I know that it’s time for me to think about myself and pursue my own dreams, I’m also excited to give a better life to my brothers. ๐Ÿ’ž  It’s A LOT, on the one hand, I’m very excited I know this is the right decision for us and everything will be more than fine, but on the other hand, it’s the adjustment to the idea that soon we won’t be able to see our families as often and it’s a process for them too. So I’m living all this right now, guys, it’s a lot of feelings, but as always I want to emphasize the positives of having the possibility to travel, to grow, and to experience, it will be incredible. So of course with so many changes happening it’s important for me to prioritize my work at least until I save what I need. ๐ŸŒŸ 

Of course, it never crossed my mind to abandon my blog or close it permanently, that’s something that’s not up for debate for me, doing this makes me happy, I love being in my pajamas writing about books, and I don’t plan to stop doing it. ๐Ÿ˜ This is just a period of time that I need and clearly, I wanted to share with you everything I’m going through, so you know the context of my decisions. Not because I feel I have to explain myself but rather because I love sharing with you, I know that in the comments I’ll find words of support and love, and sometimes I need them, so thank you for always being there, for every like, for every comment, and above all, for your passion for reading which many times are inspiring and makes me feel less alone since I have no friends who like to read as well, so as you know this space is incredibly appreciated and the community is part of my life for 5 years now, I’ve met some amazing people and I’m planning to continue doing so. ๐Ÿคฉ

The fact that I’ll stop blogging for 4 months doesn’t mean that I will stop being in the community. ๐Ÿฅณ At the moment, I don’t feel like reading, but I know that at some point I will be reading as well, and sharing maybe on Goodreads or maybe I’ll use my Storygraph, any of these things can happen, as well as you can find me on Twitter where I’ll also be sharing a bit of what I’ll be reading. I’ll also take a few minutes to check out your posts, because you know I LOVE to do it, so you won’t be able to get rid of me so easily, I’ll be there to support you. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป  ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป  ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป 

I know I wasn’t able to finish my end of the year posts, but well, I know that when I come back I’ll make a summary of that and we’ll talk a little bit about my 2021 bookish in general, ok?
Sometimes life surprises you with good and sometimes bad situations and you have to do what you can as a human being, so from my little place I would like to tell you not to be hard on yourself, we do what we can with the tools we have and that’s always enough. I love you deeply, you’re wonderful so get out there and show what you’re capable of creating and giving to the world.โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

ย ๐ŸŽ‰ย Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day, full of the most incredible readings.โค๏ธ Today, as you may have seen from the title, is a special day and a different post in honor of the blogโ€ฆthat’s turning 5 years old!!! It’s just so wonderful for me to think that for 5 years I’ve been doing something that makes me SO deeply happy, that for 5 years I’ve been sharing my thoughts about books with readers around the world and that for 5 years I’ve been learning and growing.ย ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญย ย ย 
I say it every year, but it’s the truth, so I’ll say it again, creating this blog was one of my most brilliant ideas like EVER lol, I didn’t think at the time that I would get this far through the years, but looking back, it’s been a complete blessing.

I’m clearly super excited and kind of emotional to share another celebration with you today, for that, obviously, I’ll be expressing my gratitude for this beautiful journey while making a little catharsis of life, but also I always like to bring you something useful maybe for you or for those book bloggers who are just starting or are just entering the bookish world, or maybe just for those readers who, like me 5 years ago, want to create their personal space where they can share their love for books.ย ๐Ÿ˜Š For that, I’ll be sharing today some points that you should keep in mind, like some things that you should do as a book blogger and others that you should avoid.โ€ผ๏ธ Of course, all this is always from my point of view and from my personal experience and journey, I just hope that I can be of help to someone else someday, that would make me very happy.ย ๐Ÿฅบ๐ŸŒŸย 
Thank you infinitely for being there on the other side of the screen, either recently or since many years ago, you’re SO valuable and I want you to know that I’ll always remember every moment I’ve lived with my blog,
I tressure every comment, every like and every interaction in general that we have had, so THANK YOU VERY MUCH!ย ๐Ÿฅฐ
Without further ado, let’s get started!

2021 Goals & Top 5 Books I Want to Read this Year โšก๏ธ

โšก๏ธย Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful day, surrounded by good readings and lots of love! โค๏ธ Today I’m here to bring you a combination of posts that I love doing at the beginning of each year and since I’m not having much free time I’ve chosen to do a kind of fun “mash-up” of both topics to chat a little with you about it.
Super excited to share with you my Goals for 2021 in terms of reading & blogging, as well as I will be showing you the 5 books I hope to read during the year.ย ๐Ÿ˜ I always make a longer list with the books I want to read during the year, but I’ve realized that later I end up not reading them all and that’s frustrating, so I prefer to create a smaller list and make sure I stuck with it. To make the post more fun and to make my readings more varied, I’ll be playing around with the categories where I’ll place each book, for example, varying the genres as well as the release dates and others.ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
As for my goals for the year,
this 2021 I have many personal goals that I could share with you later, of course, but this time in this post I choose to share with you all those goals related to blogging and my readings.
I hope you enjoy the post, my loves, I’m happy to have the possibility to share with you and above all, I’m excited that you also share with me what plans you have for this new year, you know that I love knowing what you think and exchanging opinions is so much fun!ย ๐Ÿ˜Š
Thank you SO much for choosing to stay for one more post,
you’re wonderful ๐Ÿฅบ, I hope you like it! Make yourself your favorite drink, and get comfortable because I’m ready to START! โšก๏ธย

I’ve never taken a week in December, so it’s new, for me the month starts today, so it will be shorter here on the blog, but anyway super excited to be back full of energy and super ready to check all your blogs and answer all your beautiful comments ๐Ÿ˜, what I’ll be doing starting today, although I know it will take me a couple of days, so be patient with me the important thing is that here I am! ๐ŸŽ‰ 
I decided to make this post to tell you that I’m back, to spend some moment together and you can tell me all about what you’ve been doing and what have you been reading, and also, of course, I want to share with you what I plan to read myself & some future plans for the blog that have me super excited, so I don’t want to make this introduction something so long,
just say want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH, because I know you’ve been supporting me even when I’m not here and that makes my heart and my soul happy, you’re a wonderful being and super precious to me๐Ÿฅบ ๐Ÿฅบ ๐Ÿฅบ  Happy to be back, mis amores & GET STARTED!

4 Years Blogiversary | 5 Things I’ve Learned & Giveaway Announcement ๐ŸŽ‰

 ๐ŸŽ‰ Hi, guys! I hope youโ€™re having the best day & youโ€™re especially enjoying your readings.โค๏ธ Today is a unique and very special day of the year because my baby blog turns 4 years old and I feel SO excited to share it with you. It’s been such a crazy and mind-blowing journey, I’m not saying goodbye to it yet, but I feel super nostalgic for some reason. ๐Ÿ˜…
I love my blog, guys, I know you already know that, but it’s such a special place where I can share the things I think and everything I feel about the books I read and other things as well, but above all, I love this project because I love to share something that I love with other people and being able to all share a moment together, and exchange ideas, is always a lot of fun for me. ๐Ÿฅฐ 
I love the book bloggers community, sometimes there’s a bit of drama happening, but most of the time it is full of wonderful people with huge hearts, who are always willing to help and support others, I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting people extremely creative and talented people who have inspired me all these years. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป 

So here I am, I thought it would be a good idea to share some things that I’ve learned during these 4 years having the blogย ๐Ÿ˜Š, things that may sound simple, but were a process in myself, so I hope that I can also help someone out there to realize how important it is to appreciate the little things.
I’m also hosting a Giveaway on Twitter ๐Ÿฅณ as I always like to do for these dates because I think that it’s not only a way to celebrate my blog’s birthday, but it’s also a way for me to say thank you and share a little of that love that you always give me. So if you’re interested in participating to win a book of your choice up to $15 (it’s ABSOLUTELY INTL) you just have to CLICK HERE and it will take you directly to the Tweet.ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปย 

Of course, I can’t start my post without thanking you, so THANK YOU SO SO MUCH, for being there on the other side always ready to support me, give me your encouragement, and give me your words of love. I’m very happy to bring you content whenever I can, it’s something that I enjoy doing, but I also love that you also enjoy it and you can find new books to add to your TBR, or we can chat a little, it’s a great pleasure for me. ๐Ÿฅบ ๐Ÿฅบ ๐Ÿฅบ 
I’m blessed to have you in my life, each of you has taught me something and I’m so grateful for that too, you’re special to me, you’re unique, and remember that you can always with everything you propose,
the limit most of the time is in your mind, so don’t give your power to anything or anyone to decide for you, you’re the only person who can change your life ๐Ÿ’ซ & I LOVE YOU FOREVER. ๐ŸŽ‰

My Experience with WordPress Premium for a Year & Reading Update ๐ŸŒฟ

ย ๐ŸŒฟย Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day and a great start to the week!โค๏ธย Today I bring you a different section, I want to be able to talk to you about some perhaps more personal topics or also about things from the blog and my reading habits and I couldn’t find any time to do it, so I thought it would be good to start this new section in the blog where I’ll share with you what’s happening with me and in my life right now, and also things that I want to chat with you and know your opinion about. Obviously, I’ll only be using it for things that I see as important, or that seems interesting to discuss or chat with you.ย ๐Ÿ˜Šย 
I don’t want any place or section in my blog to be negative in any way, this will not be either, so don’t be afraid to stay, here we’ll discuss other things that I regularly miss or sometimes I tell them very superficially in other posts and I think they deserve greater attention and depth.

With that said, today I wanted to chat a bit with you about my experience having and using WordPress Premium for a whole year and how I felt about it, and my general opinion. I also want to share with you what I’m reading right now and what book I’ve recently decided DNFed and why. I hope you enjoy, that this is something that you might find interesting or useful in some way and decide to stay and chat with me & without further ado, let’s start!ย ๐ŸŒฟย Read More »

2020 Book Releases by Black Authors & Resources to Help and Support โšก๏ธ

โšก๏ธย Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day and you’re enjoying your readings.โค๏ธย Today I’ve decided to bring you an extensive list with many 2020 releases of books written by black authors. As a blogger I think it’s my responsibility to use my platform to support and raise the voices of those who need it most right now, I’ve already done this in my wrap up & my social media, but I felt that I could give more and do more, so as my blog is about books, I’ve been collecting many incredible releases that you can enjoy and add to your TBR to somehow put a little of us at this difficult time supporting 100% black authors with their literary projects. I’ve seen that many fellow book bloggers have been doing this and also other types of posts talking about the #BlackLivesMatter movement and I think it’s wonderful, don’t think that because you have little reach or few followers, you’re not helping, on the contrary, it’s our duty as citizens and even more In our places of privilege to raise our voices right now, it’s not time to stay silent, so I invite you to also spread the word and give power to the movement by sharing links on all your social networks, signing petitions, making donations, or as you can, we can all help at this time so please do so. This is a social problem of racism, not a political thing as I’ve been hearing so it’s our duty to really raise the voices of the black community right now. There are no excuses.โšก๏ธย Read More »
