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

 🌻 Hi, my beautiful bookish friends! I hope you’re having the most incredible day with the best readings.❤️ 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? 👏🏻
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. 😊 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. 🥺

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. 🥰 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. 😍 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. 💞 
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. 🙌🏻 

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 😄, 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! 🌻

August Wrap Up | #ARCAugust, Latinx Readathon & Goodbye Reading Slump ❄️

❄️ Hi guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings.❤️ Today I bring you a new post… my August Wrap Up! where I’ll tell you ALL about my readings of the month. At last, guys, I can come with good news about my reading because August was the month where I was finally able to defeat my Reading Slump and I was able to enjoy the reading process without any problems, so I’m very happy and excited for the months to come! 👏🏻 👏🏻 👏🏻 I think July was the month where I was trying to get out of my reading slump, but August is the month where I finally felt like I was able to really do it. Therefore and thanks to this, my month has been incredible in terms of readings and I’ve quite enjoyed most of the books I’ve read which is even better, in fact, I’ve given my second 5 stars of the year, this it’s not a drill!, and I’m super excited to tell you everything about it. 😊

This August I’ve participated in two “challenges” the first has been ARC August which is all about, as its name suggests, about reading ARCs and getting up to date with them, and I think I’ve done a pretty good job with this one, I haven’t read every ARC that I had on my list, but I do have read I think half of them, which is already quite positive & on the other hand, I’ve participated in Latinx Readathon, which is an incredible Readathon where we have a Bingo Board and we must read each book by Latinx authors for each promp (you can find more information about it HERE) and as I completely loved the idea, I wanted to support it by participating and I completed my personal challenge with this one, which was completing a bingo line… so YAY! Besides this, I enjoyed every book I read and that makes me very happy. 🥳 


Besides that it has been a great month in terms of my readings, I want to take a moment as always, to thank the beautiful support that each of you gives me every day and every month with my blog. It’s a blessing to have this space and also that my works are respected means a lot, so THANK YOU SO MUCH, Amores, I’ve had the chance to meet new incredible bookish people in August, and that’s really exciting, so I look forward to a September full of love and full of support. 🥺 🥺 🥺

So, going into more detail about my readings this month, we have a great variety that has even inspired me to create new challenges to try in the future and share it with you here on the blog. 😍
First, we have some ARCs that I really liked,
two of them are incredible fantasy/paranormal sequels where both stories evolve a lot & the other ARC was a sad disappointment, a great promise but a poor execution.
Then we have three wonderful Latinx books that I’ve loved,
one of them is a romantic and super light short novel, the other is a shocking and raw anthology that will make you think & finally my new 5 stars: an absolutely meaningful story about how to forgive and move on.
Then I was also able to finish a book that I had been reading since July and I really enjoyed that one, a brilliant and gloomy plot & I also chose one of the books from my “Back-Up Pile”, which
was another sequel that I was dying to read and I ended up adoring it.

So without further ado, LET’S GET STARTED! I’m super excited to share with you all my thoughts about each of these books & I hope you enjoy it. ❄️

Colorful Bookish Sundays | Prioritizing Books from my TBR ☄️

☀️  Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day, full of good readings & amazing moments.❤️  Super excited for today’s post, this is the beginning of a new series of super chill posts that I’ll be bringing you every Sunday from now on!  🥳  These will be our “Colorful Bookish Sundays” and it will be, basically, to organize my priority list, choosing some books from my Goodreads TBR to add to my list which I’ll check every month when creating my monthly TBRs, that way I hope to start reading those books that I’m most excited about, so they don’t end up in my TBR for years as many of them are already doing  😅 
You may not know this, but I have a mini book list that I go to when I build my TBR every month, but it’s super outdated and I’ve been wanting to renew it for a while now, so I thought it would be a fun and different idea to do it, and also share with you the process and know your thoughts, which always helps me a lot to make decisions.

I’m looking to give to this post series a fun and relaxed look, so I decided to show you a specific color every Sunday, I LOVE some good beautiful covers and even more when there’s a beautiful color palette in them, so I think it could be interesting organize them by color, chat a little about them, and as always try to organize myself better with my books and my future readings  😍  & you can know what color we’ll play every Sunday based on the icon that will accompany the title, but I’ll also let you know below.

The dynamic will be to show you the selected books and then separate them by categories to finally make a decision of which one/ones will be my choice to add to my list of priorities and obviously, I would love to know what you think about them!   👏🏻 👏🏻 👏🏻 

I’m SO happy to bring you posts on Sundays again, it seems like a fun idea and hopefully, it will be entertaining for both you and me. 🥺 I hope you like it, I know it sounds weird now and you’re probably thinking “Sofi, what are you doing?”  😂   but have patience, I promise I’ll do my best and we’ll see how the idea progresses over time. I LOVE YOU ❤️, thanks for the constant support, it means a lot to me, so now get comfortable, prepare your favorite drink and let’s start!  ☀️

Book Recommendations | Standalone Books Edition #2 🌲

 🌲 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day, having incredible moments, and reading the best books.❤️ This month I’ve brought you a recommendation post, of those that I LOVE to do, all focused on standalone books (You can find PART #1 right here) and I could see you’ve enjoyed it a lot, which always makes me SO SO happy, so I’m excited to bring you a second part! 🥰 I hadn’t really thought about doing a second part, but I realized that there were several books that I hadn’t yet been able to recommend and they hadn’t entered the previous list, so I’ll gladly be including them here today. This time I’ll also be using the same format as before, which I will explain below in case you still don’t know what it is about. My idea is to give you a style of recommendations where it is easier to find the perfect book just for you, so that you can simply add it to your TBR and start reading it. 👏🏻 

So how will this be? You know that I like to give a special touch and a different thing to my recommendation posts since I want it to be a fun experience for you and that you can also really feel they’re more personalized recommendations where I think that hopefully, you can find the perfect book just for you. 💕 That’s why this time I’ve decided to classify the books by categories according to how they’ve made me feel while reading them so you can find the one that resonates best with you and your reading tastes. For example, I have classified those standalone with a magical touch, those more complex and you can even find some lighter ones to enjoy.  😊

If you want to know my complete thoughts on each of the books you can do so by clicking on the names of the books, which will take you directly to my review without spoilers  🙌🏻 

I hope you like this idea very much, I always try to bring you the best of me and that we can have a good time together and chat a little about books because that’s why we are here, right? 😍 
Thank you SO SO much for the infinite support, you know that
 I feel it very deeply in my heart and I treasure every comment, like and shared that you give to my posts, I put a lot of love in my work and the recognition is always a blessing 🥺. Thank you, mis amores, for being there always  & now, let’s get started, I’m super excited! 🌲

The Longest Books in my Physical TBR 📔

📔 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! 📔

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

🌒 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day, surrounded by AMAZING readings.❤️ 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! 😅 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. 😍  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.  😊 

I hope you like the idea, that you can enjoy the post, and that you especially find new readings for your own TBR! 🙌🏻 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! 🌒 Read More »
