September TBR | The Month I Want to Read It ALL: Latinx Book Bingo & Exciting ARCs ๐ŸŒป

 ๐ŸŒป Hi, my beautiful bookish friends! I hope youโ€™re having the most incredible day with the best readings.โค๏ธ Today I bring you a new Monthly TBR, where I share with you my reading plans for the month of September. Can you believe that there are only 4 months until the end of the year? It’s just so crazy, but looking at how our 2020 has been maybe it’s a good thing, right? ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
I’m very excited about my plans for this month because I just coming out of my reading slump and I feel ready to read a little bit more, which is great! Even so, I’ll not promise that I’ll read each of the books that I’ve planned because I know that sometimes I lose control and I get a little ambitious lol, but I do want to try to read as much as I can and the most important thing is that I hope to enjoy the process. ๐Ÿ˜Š Of course,
I want to thank you for always supporting me, August has been a great month for the blog and also for me, and in large part I owe it to you and to every comment of love that means the world for me, so I never want to miss the chance to say THANK YOU and I really appreciate what you do for me. ๐Ÿฅบ

Perhaps you have noticed that now there’s a small sunflower accompanying this month’s title and that means that spring will be coming this month to Argentina, so I’m planning to focus on reading some contemporary books that I’ve had for a while, since I feel that the warmer weather is perfect for it. ๐Ÿฅฐ So, this month I’ll be participating in a Readathon and that’s Latinx Book Bingo and will take place from September 15 to October 15, which is Hispanic Heritage Month, is hosted by Paola, Allie (Allie With Books), and Sofia (Bookish Wanderess). For this Readathon the girls have created a Bingo Borad, of course, which I’ll show you below and maybe even though some of my readings will coincide with some promps, I’ve decided to focus on the books I already own, so in general my challenge will be to read as many books by Latinx authors and representations as humanly possible throughout the month of September, maybe I’ll also be reading some in October, but you know that I usually focus more on spooky books during that month, so my goal in September is to read as much as I can. ๐Ÿ˜ I love supporting my people and this wonderful idea, so if you didn’t know about it yet and you feel like it, I invite you to participate by at least reading a couple of books or just one book by a Latinx author, that would be incredible to show your support. ๐Ÿ’ž 
Apart from this
I’ll also be focusing on my ARCs and I have several Blog Tours in which I will be participating as well, I feel super excited for them, because they are books that I’m dying to read and share the experience with you. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป 

I think that this month I’ll not be using my “Back Up Pile” because I’ll already be adding a lot of books by Latinx authors, so I want to focus mainly on them, and I’ll see as the month progresses. I’m super excited to share everything that I’ll be reading this month ๐Ÿ˜„, I hope you enjoy it and tell me what you’ll be reading in the comments, you know that I love chatting with you. Now, without further ado, let’s get started! ๐ŸŒป

Top 10 | Possible Spooky TBR… Isn’t it Halloween already? ๐ŸŒ’

๐ŸŒ’ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day, surrounded by AMAZING readings.โค๏ธ Today I’m more than excited because as you’ll see from the title I’ll be sharing with you the most spooky books of my TBR, that could become possible readings for Halloween season in October! I know you’re probably thinking “Sofi, it’s August, are you okay?” lol and YES, I KNOW! ๐Ÿ˜… But I couldn’t stop thinking about how much I want to read that kind of spooky, creepy, atmospherically engaging plotline. So I thought, even though it’s August and October is still a little while away, it would be fun to gather my possible readings for Halloween and, by the way, know your opinions on each book on my list and thus be able to create a scary stack to read in the future. ๐Ÿ˜  Also, of course, I’d love to hear your spooky recommendations for me, as I’m ready to add them all to my TBR.

When I have in mind reading something spooky in general I think of a spooky atmosphere that keeps you on the edge of the seat wanting to know what will happen, I also love anything that has to do with witches, it’s my jam & of course, weird and dark plots. So you’ll find a bit of all of that on my list today.  ๐Ÿ˜Š 

I hope you like the idea, that you can enjoy the post, and that you especially find new readings for your own TBR! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป You know that I would love to know everything you think in the comments, it will be a lot of fun, so let’s START! ๐ŸŒ’ Read More »

August TBR | #ARCAugust, Latinx Readathon & Trying a New Category! โ„๏ธ

โ„๏ธ Hi, my beautiful bookish friends! I hope youโ€™re having the most incredible day with the best readings.โค๏ธ Today I bring you a new Monthly TBR, where I share with you my reading plans for the month of August. SO excited to be sharing another month of possible readings with you, I always have SO MUCH FUN! Ok, so this month I’ve planned a somewhat ambitious TBR… maybe, I know I’m coming out of my Reading Slump, so all these plans are always keeping in mind that I want to take it easy, but I still wanted to add a little more book options than I usually put, since I’ll be inaugurating a new section in my TBRs from now on, which I hope will help me to be more relaxed with respect to my lists and have a greater variety of options according to my mood. ๐Ÿคฉ Super excited to share it s with you but before, I want to come back to thank you for the incredible July that you’ve made me go through, filled with love and support… THANK YOU, my beautiful friends, here for an even better August. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป You know that if you want me to support you with anything you can send me an e-mail or find me on Twitter, I’m always more than happy to give you a hand with what I can & I’ll be doing a LOT of blogs hopping this month, I’m looking forward to seeing that it’s been happening on your blog!  ๐Ÿ˜ 

So going back to my reading this August, I have many plans!! First, I want to participate in #ARCAugust because it’s the perfect time to read as many ARCs as possible and so feel more relaxed about it, catching up with them. I have a selection of ARCs that I’m really excited about, I have several sequels, so I’m very much looking forward to seeing what will happen in these stories.
Then I’ll also be participating in the Latinx Readathon, a Readathon hosted by Sofia (Aelin’s Kingdom), Nikkie (Nikkie Reads), Jane Josรฉe (Big Black Books) & ( lou reading things ), I leave you all the links so that you follow these wonderful girls & this Readathon is obviously all about reading books by Latinx authors and/or that the book contains some kind of Latinx representation in them, but it also includes many super fun proms in an incredible bingo that the girls have created. My decision to participate was a last-minute thing because I didn’t know about Readathon, but when I knew it I really had to do it to show my support for this incredible idea and as Latina, I feel super proud of this incredible work, so if you want to join in it’s not too late, you can do it simply by picking up a book from a Latinx author. All the information is in the Twitter account, which you can access by clicking on the name itself and I hope you like it and decide to support the idea! โค๏ธ 
I know it will not be possible for me to read a book for each on of the promps because they’re many, so I decided to do a bingo line and I’ll be reading 3 books for that, which I’ll share with you in a moment and I almost forgot, the readathon takes place throughout the whole month of August. ๐Ÿ˜Š 

And finally, because this is getting long (to no one’s surprise ๐Ÿ˜‚ ) I want to share with you my new section, where I’ll be piling even more books to add to my TBR, I know it sounds crazy, but my idea is something like this: This section will be called “The Back-Up Pile” in there I’ll have a mini-list with possible readings, what does this mean? Well, sometimes and after going through my reading slump, I realized that my reading mood has been changing a lot and sometimes I don’t feel really motivated to read something that’s already in my TBR originally or maybe I just want to change the genre, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a backup list where I can choose some readings that I already own, some that remain from my past TBR and I didn’t get to read or just new buys and releases that I’m really excited about, in this way I think my TBRs will be more fun and didactical & I’ll also have more options just in case I feel like reading something different during the month.  ๐Ÿฅฐ 
I hope you get what I mean, I know it sounds a bit messy, but once I show it to you I know you’ll understand better. Let me know in the comments if you like the idea, if it would be something that would work for you or if you would like to try it, I would love that & obviously, let me know everything about the books in this section, I would LOVE to know your thoughts!  ๐Ÿ˜ 

Now, without further ado, I LOVE YOU  ๐ŸŒป & let the books party begin! โ„๏ธ Read More »

My TBR Jar | 30+ Books โšฑ๏ธ

โšฑ๏ธย Hi friends, I hope you’re having a beautiful day and you’re enjoying all your reading! โค๏ธย Today I’ve decided to start organizing my reading lists and I realized that I’ve never shared all the books that are in my TBR here, so I think it’s a good idea to do it now, not just to share with you and talk a little about them, but I also think it will help me to remember to prioritize them as well, and maybe start reading some in the coming months.ย ๐Ÿ˜Šย 
I had a super extensive TBR jar at the beginning of the year, but I decided to do it again while doing my TBR Lows & Highs series, so from scratch, I decided to create my TBR jar with your help through my series of posts and then put in my Jar only those books that you think I should give a chance to and also those that have been in my TBR for years! ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปย I really appreciate all the help that you have given me through my posts every week choosing one or more books for my TBR Jar, now I have a very solid list of books that I’ll be giving a chance over time, I also plan to try a chapter of some at some point and also share it with you. My goal is to finally give them a chance to decide if they’re for me or not and share my thoughts with you, some of them are really popular.
Of course, I would love to know your thoughts about each one of them, that would help me a lot and I think it will be a fun way to finally give them a chance. I hope you enjoy it, thank you SO SO much for the support and love of alwaysย ๐Ÿฅฐ, and without further ado, let’s get started! โšฑ๏ธ Read More »

July TBR | Catching up with my Readings & PopCulture Readathon โ„๏ธ

โ„๏ธย Hi, my beautiful bookish friends! I hope youโ€™re having the most incredible day with the best readings.โค๏ธ Today I bring you a new Monthly TBR, where I share with you my reading plans for the month of July. This month will be the month where I’ll try to catch up on my readings after having a very bad June, thank God it was a pretty short month for me because I was urgent to start with a new month and new energy. ๐Ÿ’ซ I know I say this every month, you probably think I’m crazy, but I’m excited for this month and I think it will be the month when I finally read a lot and catch up on many readings I’ve been wanting to read since the beginning of the year.ย ๐Ÿ˜ย ย 

I’ve planned this structure where I’ve chosen books that I’m really excited about, some ARCs and new releases, in this way, I think I’ll be able to defeat the reading slump and stay motivated throughout the month.ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปย In addition to these plans, I’ll be participating in PopCulture Readathonย ๐Ÿคฉย , which not only sounds incredible but IS INCREDIBLE. When I found out about it on Twitter, I knew that I had to participate even when I wasn’t reading anything at the time. I LOVE the idea, is inspired by movies from the ’90s! I think it’s brilliant and I love how Whitney, the creator, has organized everything in a way that we all have many options and a wide range of promps and boards: Teen Dream Family Affair” “Thrill Ride & The Adult Table, which I LOVE! I also think that there’s no specific goal, you can do it as you like and how it resonates with you, try to fill the board you choose or you can do it in a bingo-style or as you want, in my case, I’ll try to read as many books as I can of the board that I’ve chosen.ย ๐Ÿ˜Šย  In case you want to know more about the readathon and places to find it, I’ll leave you all the links here above and I’m very happy to see that many of us will be participating or, in my case, trying to participate, so it will be even more fun!

I also want to say that if you’re feeling uncomfortable or un-motivated, please don’t hesitate to stay away for a while if it’s what you need, it’s totally understandable and your mental health comes first. I LOVE YOU & I’m planning a discussion on how to combat reading slump for this month if you’re interested stay around because I know that sadly many of us are going through the same thing, but I know that we going to do it so much better this month, July will be our month of reading! โค๏ธ โค๏ธ โค๏ธ โค๏ธ โค๏ธ โค๏ธ


I have a huge stack of books planned to share with you below, I’ve decided to choose a book for each promp on the board because I think it’s fun and I just wanted to choose to have a lot of variety and possibilities, even so, I’m aware that I’ll not read all this and it’s ok, I still wanted to try to read as much as I can.ย ๐Ÿฅฐย I’m excited to share it with you, let me know EVERYTHING in the comments & without further ado, LET’S START! โ„๏ธย Read More »

June TBR | #MakeYourMythTaker Readathon & Catching up with my Own Challenges ๐Ÿ‚

๐Ÿ‚ย Hi, my beautiful bookish friends! I hope youโ€™re having the most incredible day with the best readings.โค๏ธ 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.ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปย 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.ย ๐Ÿ˜ย  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! ย ๐ŸŒŸย 

 

 


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. ๐Ÿš€
In addition, as always, I’ll be incorporating an ARC, for which I will be participating in the blog tourย ย ๐Ÿ“šย 
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.ย ๐Ÿ˜„ย 
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? ย ๐Ÿฅฐย 
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! ๐Ÿ‚ย Read More »

I know that I always thank you in my Wrap Ups, but since I’m writing these post with a lot of anticipation, I wanted to thank you again because April has been the best month of the year for my blog and I owe everything to your support, I’ve also had the pleasure and the blessing of being “blog of the day” on Twitter, for the third time!ย ๐Ÿ˜ย Which is crazy, but I appreciate it SO SO much and I use all that support as a great incentive to keep working and improving every day. SO HAPPY, I have a lot of fun ideas and discussions and weird posts for this month lol, so I hope you decide to stay there to share it with me and if you’re new and just start following the blog, THANK YOU SO MUCH, it means the world to me! โค๏ธย 


So going back to my readings, I’ve decided to continue with my personal challenge of reading popular old YA series, and this month you will surely excited as much as I am, I think it’s time that I have an opinion on these SO beloved books.ย ๐Ÿฅฐย Then, you know that I’ve created mini-TBRs in order to read more genres and this month I’ve decided to start with my Sci-Fi stack, so you will see what my choice is, I’m a little nervous about this one, but also intrigued, you know this is a hit or miss genre for me, so we’ll see *fingers crossed*ย ๐Ÿš€ย 
I’ll also be continuing some series that I’m enjoying very much and these continuations really sound AMAZING, and I can’t wait to read about all these characters again.ย ๐ŸŒŸย 
Last but not least, I’ve included an ARC which despite not having heard much about it, sounds very good, and I’m excited to read it.ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปย 
So without further ado, I hope you have a wonderful month, and let’s start, I’m SO excited to share with you what I’m going to be reading! ๐Ÿ‚Read More »

Abril TBR ๐Ÿ‚ | O.W.L.s Magical Readathon 2020 ๐Ÿ’›

๐Ÿ‚ Hi, my beautiful bookish friends! I hope youโ€™re having the most incredible day with the best readings.โค๏ธ Today I bring you a new Monthly TBR, where I share with you my reading plans for the month of April, but this time it’s super special because I’ll be participating throughout the month in a new edition of the OWLs Magical Readathon ๐Ÿ’ซ, which I love SO much, I’m super excited to share this experience with you, I also know that many of you will be participating, so it’s even more special than most of us can share the same energy during this month and of course, share what we’ll be reading and our goals in general. ๐Ÿฅฐ

Here in my country, we’re still in mandatory quarantine, I have many posts mentioning the same thing, but I like to keep you informed, especially since I know that most of you are from other countries, so I think there’s something very important in sharing this type of information worldwide for us to be more aware of what’s happening, there’s nothing more powerful and important than information. So, this is why I wanted to share with you that I’m still in quarantine until, at least, half a month, then we’ll see what happens, the important thing is to stay safe and take care of others as well, so although it can be a little stressful, I try to keep my energy as positive as possible knowing that I’m doing my best to help in these dark moments. This said, I hope I can read everything I plan, beyond having time sometimes mentally it’s impossible to read or do anything else, and I know you understand me, so let’s hope that everything flows in the most perfect way possible and hopefully I’ll be accomplishing with my goals and with the career that I’ve chosen.๐Ÿ˜Š


The OWLs start on the 1st of April and end on the 30th of April, this so creative and wonderful readathon is created by Book Roast, I recommend that you check her channel, it’s wonderful and I’ve had the great pleasure of being part of a recommendation series for my house: Hufflepuff last year, in which I give you some ideas for each promp & was a blessing. ALL the information is in the video that I’m leaving here for you, you’ll be able to find out everything you need to know, from the Wizarding Careers available this year to the letter and prompts, and many fun new things that have been added this 2020 ๐Ÿ’ซ, so check it out for a much more complete and informative overview of the Magical Readathon. ๐Ÿ’›

 

 


I don’t have much more to say right now, I’m super excited and happy to be able to participate again another year, it feels beautiful to be able to share with so many other readers of the same experience, it’s really magical. So without further ado, I’m dying to tell you which career I’ve chosen and what I’ll be reading to get my wizard degree this 2020 ๐Ÿ˜… so, let’s start! ๐Ÿ‚Read More »

March TBR | It’s all about Sequels, Unexpected Reads & a Popular YA Trilogy ๐ŸŽ

ย ๐ŸŽย Hi, my beautiful bookish friends! I hope youโ€™re having the most incredible day with the best readings.โค๏ธ Today I bring you a new Monthly TBR, where I share with you my reading plans for the month of March. For some reason, I always feel that the year really begins in March, so I feel with special energy, maybe because the vacation has just ended and all that. I think that from my TBR last month I only have 1 book left to read, and although I feel I could have read more, I think I’m doing a very good job so far, I’m enjoying my reading process a lot and I’m also taking it easy, so YAY!ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปย this makes me feel even more ambitious and eager to read more. I don’t have the biggest plans yet for this month more than my normal daily life and read, so I feel pretty sure I can handle my stack. I’m super excited to tell you all about my reading plans for this month!ย ๐Ÿ˜

I hope not to get you tired with this, but it’s really important for me to thank you for the wonderful support you’re showing me and my blog this year, there’s not a day that you don’t make me feel special, loved and supported and that means the world to me.ย ๐Ÿ˜ญย  My efforts and my desire to grow with my blog come from all that wonderful energy that you send me with every moment you take to read my post, so THANK YOU SO SO MUCH. You’re all wonderful people and I hope we share many many magical moments together this year. LOVE YOU!! โค๏ธย 

I wanted to tell you that this month I’ll not be uploading my post where I highlight other posts around the blogosphere (Book Bloggers Monthly Appreciation) because I’ve had a problem … My boyfriend gave me a new cell phone for my birthday and in the process of changing everything and those things something happened with the WordPress app and I don’t have any saved entries of the many that I had to highlight from February. So I’m very sorry, I promise to return with even more highlights of the month of March, but obviously, you’ll see that just next month. Thanks for understanding, I feel so bad, but you know I want to always support you! and I won’t stop doing itย ๐Ÿฅฐย 

So, what are we here today? … BOOKS! ๐Ÿ˜ย This month I’m very excited about my selection because I have several books that I’ve wanted to read for some time now, especially sequels or continuations of series, I have some very interesting exciting titles here and I can’t wait to share with you!. For the first time, I will be part of a blog tour so that’s something new and exciting that I’ll be sharing that with you later in the month. I’ll also be reading a super-anticipated book from last year that has more than controversial opinions and a fairly unique promise. And last but not least, I’m continuing my challenge of reading old YA series, but this time I’ve chosen it well in advance, so I haven’t made a poll as before, this is because I LOVE the author, so I’m more than excited and super ready to read more of her work, especially one that is so loved and recognized. Now, without further ado, LET’S BEGIN ๐Ÿ˜Šย and I hope you enjoy discovering what I’ll be reading & share your own readings in the comments, I’d LOVE to know!ย ๐ŸŽย Read More »
