But Kaylan can’t hide forever – not from the forces that surround her, or from the darkness inside herself. Rebel leader Bellamy seeks her help to destroy a regime; Captain Thorn pursues her with a vengeance; and as her power grows, her inner demons begin to seep through the cracks…

Kaylan may be strong, but is she strong enough to resist the Relic?

May Wrap Up | Unexpected Readings, A Popular Trilogy & Great Sequels 🍂

🍂 Hi guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings.❤️ Today I bring you a new post… my May Wrap Up! where I’ll tell you ALL about my readings of the month. May was a pretty good month in terms of reading, something crazy and messy, yes, but pretty good, but on the other hand not so good in mental terms, you know? I think that finally, the quarantine has come to me, I’m a super conscious person about everything that’s happening in the world, but I’ve never felt fear or anxiety about it, I try to be in a more relaxed state of mind and most of the time, has worked well, but this May I got a little out of control, I must confess. 😢 I’m always the first to tell you to prioritize your mental health over anything else, so obviously, I did that, and I found much comfort and support in YOU, even when you may not even know this, I LOVE and it brings me a lot of peace and positive energy to read your comments and interact with all of you in general, this is a community that always brings me good things, so THANK YOU, for being there for me to support me, love me and accept me. Blogging was wonderful, the best medicine is to do what you love, without a doubt. ❤️ 


On the other hand, even though I’ve struggled a bit mentally, incredibly and contrary it has been one of the most creative months for me. I feel that maybe this is my point of view, but I’m very happy with the content of my blog this month, I’m 100% satisfied with it and I’m very happy to see the response that you’ve had to each post, it has been wonderful, really It brings me a lot of satisfaction and makes me SO SO happy.  👏🏻 I hope to keep this pace of creation and ideas for June too, just in case I always write everything that comes to my mind, so I hope I already have a reserve of ideas for emergency lol. As always THANKS for your support for my blog and, especially this month, thanks to so many of you for sharing your experiences with your blogs in my discussion post, it really means a lot to me that you can open up and express your thoughts and feelings with me and with all of us.  😍  I’m sure that each comment in that post could be a word of encouragement for someone else and that makes me very happy! 💃🏻

In terms of readings, being honest with you I expected to read much more, but you know, sometimes you don’t feel like reading and I accepted this, and I didn’t mean to force it, but I did expect to do a better job. Even so, it wasn’t a bad month at all and I really enjoyed everything that I read, in fact, there’s no a single book that I didn’t like this month, so that’s even more important than quantity (quality over quantity, always!)  👍🏻 
I read a super famous and super loved trilogy and I’m very excited to share my thoughts with you, but basically was a very incredible read and I enjoyed it very much. On the other hand, I read a couple of sequels or series continuations, and they were great too, lots of action in them and wonderful characters & last but not least, I had the joy of reading an ARC of a book that’s probably among my favorites this year… It was wonderful, it touched my heart and although I hadn’t planned to read it, it was worth it.  😊 
I hope you decide to stay with me during this post and get to know each of my readings, statistics, and some of my favorite posts. 🥰 I hope you enjoy it and without further ado, let’s get started! 🍂Read More »

Double Book Review | Two Incredibles but Different Adventures | Last Girls & Come Tumbling Down

 🌿 Hi guys, I hope you’re having the most incredible day full of good readings! ❤️ Today I have a new post for you with a double book review and I’m SUPER excited to share it with you. In general, I like taking time with each book to give it its protagonism, but I thought that since I didn’t get to talk about Last Girls by Demetra Brodsky last month when I read it, and Come Tumbling Down (Wayward Children #5) by Seanan McGuire is super short, it was a good idea to put both books together and bring you my thoughts on them. 🥰  One of them is a unique adventure with a lot of suspense and unexpected twists & the other one is a familiar world that I missed SO MUCH, extraordinary and whimsical. I hope you enjoy and can find new readings to enjoy. LOVE YOU! 🌿 Read More »

Synopsis


They have a love-hate relationship with summer.

Sidney and Asher should have clicked. Two star swimmers forced to spend their summers on a lake together sounds like the perfect match. But it’s the same every year—in between cookouts and boat rides and family-imposed bonfires, Sidney and Asher spend the dog days of summer finding the ultimate ways to prank each other. And now, after their senior year, they’re determined to make it the most epic summer yet.

But their plans are thrown in sudden jeopardy when their feud causes their families to be kicked out of their beloved lake houses. Once in their new accommodations, Sidney expects the prank war to continue as usual. But then she gets a note—Meet me at midnight. And Asher has a proposition for her: join forces for one last summer of epic pranks, against a shared enemy—the woman who kicked them out.

Their truce should make things simpler, but six years of tormenting one another isn’t so easy to ignore. Kind of like the undeniable attraction growing between them.

Can new alliances save the islands of the Silent Sea from the murderers stalking their shores?

As the island of Kalaya and its people recover from civil war, a new threat surfaces. Invaders from the island of Elkena hunt the seas, butchering those who possess magic. Their scar-faced captain seeks the Fire Mage who it has been foretold will kill him and Tei and her people are in his warpath.

Tei and a band of Kalayans travel to Stone Haven, the home of their new allies, planning to restore magic to the dead island. But the Stone Haven Council have abhorred magic since their people were massacred by Elkenan invaders twenty years before. Commander Farrell must persuade his people to accept magic again, but his plans expose them to their biggest fear and he risks leading Tei and her people into danger, and jeopardising the safety of both their islands.

Under Farrell’s guidance treaties are forged, but is the newly formed Silent Sea Alliance enough to defeat the invaders and stop their bloodthirsty quest to destroy magic forever?

The Sentinel’s Alliance is the final book in the Silent Sea Chronicles trilogy.

March Wrap Up || Into the Grishaverse & a Time Travel ARC || 2019 🍂

copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia de copia

 🍂 Hi guys, I hope you’re having a beautiful day, today I bring you my Wrap Up of the month of March, where I’ll tell you all about my reading of the month. Well, putting everything in retrospect, I feel it has been a good month, I don’t think I’ve given 100% of myself on my reading, I think I could have done better but ended up falling into an awful reading slump by the end of the month and I been like 5 days without touching a book, and although I would have loved to finish another one, I didn’t want to push myself to do it. I think I needed those days off, and I feel good about it. Reading Crooked Kingdom really left me exhausted, that book is incredible but it was physically exhausting, and I needed a vacation after finishing it 😂 .
It was an INCREDIBLE month in terms of blogging, I feel more and more all the support and I continue to know you and love you more, and all that beautiful energy makes me want to continue working harder and harder to make better posts to you. Be part of the bookish community makes me so happy, I really learn a lot here, and that fills me with gratitude 🤗 
Well, as you’ll see down below, despite not having read the amount I expected to read, I loved everything I’ve read so I call that a great month, right?!.
I’ve re-read a trilogy this month and that’s why I haven’t had as many reviews on the blog as I usually have, but next month it will surely change, which is good, because I miss writing reviews when I don’t do it. Due to the lack of reviews, I think I’ve written many different posts that I’ve enjoyed writing so I thought I could share with you my favorites so you can check them out if you’re interested and you haven’t yet done.
I LOVE YOU, YOUR SUPPORT MEANS THE WORLD FOR ME! 💕 
So, without more further ado, Let’s Start! 🍂 Read More »
