November Wrap Up | A Challenging Month: NaNoWriMo & Catching up with ARCs 🌻

 🌻 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings.❤️Today I bring you a new post… my November Wrap Up! where I’ll tell you ALL about my readings of the month. This month was a challenge for me, I think it’s the first time that I put myself to the test in this way so demandingly. I can say that I’m proud of myself for having been able to do SO much during this month, on the other hand, I’m exhausted so it would be good for me to relax a little during the next month, I deserve it. 🥺 🥺 
Well, to keep you updated on what I’ve been doing in the month of November, to begin with, I’ve been participating in
NaNoWriMo for the first time, and it has been an absolutely enriching experience of learning and growth for me as a writer, which I appreciate very much. 😊 I’m more than happy to have participated, but I did realize how demanding it could be, so that’s why I made the decision to abandon it after the third week, I told you a little about it in my NaNo update, but in summary, I felt that I was being too much for me, I felt mentally and physically exhausted and I didn’t want to write anything just to reach a “goal”, you know? so I made that decision and although it was difficult at the same time I know that it was the best for me and today I’m happy with what I’ve accomplished. I wrote 30k words and that’s just INCREDIBLE for me, so I haven’t regret, contrarily, I celebrate that great achievement. 🥳 

Besides having been writing a lot and having focused 100% on my WIP also magically and I still don’t know how, I’ve been able to read ALL, yes, you read correctly, ALL the ARCs that I planned to read this month 🤩, I can’t believe I do it, but I’ve had the incredible luck to have quite short books and also super easy to read, I enjoyed them a lot so I’m really happy to have been able to read a lot this month too, which was not my main goal, but… YAY! 👏🏻 
I’ve read a lot of high-impact fantasy, a bit of sci-fi & a long-awaited mystery book that paid off. So, super happy and excited to come with good news and been able to recommend several books.
 🥰 


Before starting I want to share with you that I’ll be taking this week off, if you’ve followed me for a while you know that every year I take a week of mini-vacations to take care of myself and visit my family, and that kind of thing, so I’ll be gone since December 1st and I’ll return on Monday 7th and the second week of December will be normal as usual. 💕 I usually take weeks off in November but this time I decided to change things up a bit. I think it would be healthy for me to get away a little and I‘ll return with a lot of energy as usual to bring you the best of me. 💫
I also wanted to mention that I know that I haven’t been checking other blogs and I’m also super late with the comments, so I’m very sorry, really the month of November has been crazy for me 😭,
I’ve been extremely busy and I haven’t been able to do my beloved blog hopping, but I hope to change that soon and will be checking your beautiful and wonderful blogs as always. 😍 😍 😍 
You know that I’m still here for you always, love you, I’m deeply grateful for all the love and the nice comments, THANK YOU SO MUCH! 💕 So, I’ll be back soon, when you’re reading this I’m probably already on my break, but I still wanted to mention it.
You’ll have posts anyway all the week, so you won’t feel my absence, but I’ll probably be answering comments when I get back and doing a massive blog hopping of thanks.

Now, without further ado, I’m excited to share with you everything I’ve read in the month of November, so I hope you decide to stay. Let’s get started! 🌻

Double ARC Review | A Wind From the Rift & The Shadowverse: Vengeance

 🌿 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day by the hand of the most incredible readings ❤️ Today I’m more than happy to bring you a double review of two incredible sequels that I’ve read this month, and that I also have the pleasure to say have been ARCs. Before starting I want to thank the author & the publisher with my heart who have contacted me to read their works, it has been a pleasure to do so. I’ll be bringing you this type of shorter reviews this month since, as you know, I’m writing a lot this month (NaNoWriMo) so I don’t have time to elaborate as much as always, even so, don’t get me wrong, I touch on all the important points in these reviews and I haven’t left anything to say, I’m just trying to get more to the point and quickly touch on the points that I clearly liked as well as those that I didn’t and so hopefully you can choose one to add to your TBR. 🥰 
This time I have a high fantasy sequel with a dark tone that has surprised me & another sequel about superheroes more focused on the sci-fi side, super light, and fun to read. 👏🏻
So without further ado, I hope you enjoy it, you know that I adore sharing my thoughts with you 😊 & LET’S GET STARTED!

November TBR | Catching up on ARCs, Re-reading some faves & Participating in NaNoWriMo for the first time! 🌻

 🌻 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’m sharing with you my reading plans for the month of November. I can already tell you and surely you yourself will have realized it: this month is an ambitious month, where I’ll be doing many different things, so OMG, it will be a busy month, but I feel super prepared to give my best in each of my activities, so whatever the end result is, I’ll be super proud of myself & I’m already super excited to share everything with you. 🥰
First, I want to tell you that
in the month of November the blog is turning 4 years old 🎊, more precisely on November 14, so of course, I’ll be doing something very special that will include a post to share with you celebrating this moment & a Giveaway on Twitter 🌟, so please if you still don’t follow me there, do it, I don’t want anyone to miss the opportunity to participate, but actuality, all this is a simple gesture of love towards you and a way of saying THANK YOU to the support you gave me throughout the years, I’m so grateful for you. 🥺 🥺 🥺


As the title says, I’ll be part of NaNoWriMo for the first time ever this year and I feel super excited about it, I think it will be fun, and I hope it will help me and be an incentive to develop my WIP as much as possible. 👏🏻 What I’m most excited about being part of this event, is being able to share a little of what I write with the world and with you especially, and being able to feel inspired by all the projects that others will be writing, I’m also excited to be able to meet other ideas and share and give them my support, I think it’s a very good time to work on my ideas and finally be able to move forward and give them a better shape. 🌲
Of course, I plan to share the process with you, for that every Sunday of the month I’ll have an update on my writing here on the blog and obviously, if you’re interested, I’ll share a little about what I’m writing, what it’s about, and all that, there are simply many things I would love to discuss with you. 😍
Besides all this, I feel that sharing a little of my project with you could be a lot of learning for me, knowing your thoughts will be fun and I hope that all this experience will help me improve my writing and have new ideas,
I’m open to all kinds of respectful criticizing, I want to grow and learn, so I’m ready! I hope you’re interested in sharing this month of writing with me every Sunday & of course, I can’t wait to find out what you’re working on if you’ll participate as well. 🥳

My reading month will be super focused on reading all the ARCs I haven’t read yet, above all, I want to prioritize those that will be released or have already been released during 2020 & And I’ll also be participating in a Blog Tour this month, of which I must say, I’m beyond excited! 🙌🏻 so that will be all my focus on the reading area lol, if I get to read them all then, something that makes me very excited is to start re-reading one of my favorite fantasy series because there’s very little left for the release of the next book in the series. So although this is not really my priority as such in the month, it’s something I want to add just in case, if I can’t with that, though, it’s fine, I don’t feel any kind of pressure, is something I just would like to do. 😊 

So my loves, this is all I have for you today, this will be a month with many things, I want you to know that I’ll be very focused on my writing which is fine for me, but still, I will continue to update in the blog as always, only that I probably have to get some posts scheduled, you’ll still have a lot of content. I adore you, I hope you have the best month & I hope you enjoy this TBR, let me know everything you will be reading or doing this month in the comments 😍, and without further ado, let’s get started! 🌻

ARC Review |The Ninth Sorceress by Bonnie Wynne

48481720. sy475

 

Title: The Ninth Sorceress

By: Bonnie Wynne

Series: The Price of Magic

Pages: 486

Publication: February 13th, 2020

By: Talem Press

Genre: YA | Fantasy | Magic

Buy it: Amazon

 

Synopsis


In the blackest dungeon of the Clockwork City, a prisoner lies bound in silver shackles. Who is she? And why are the wizards so afraid of her?

Seventeen-year-old Gwyn has no family and no past. Apprenticed to a half-mad herbalist, she travels the snow-blasted High Country, hawking potions in a peddler’s wagon. Her guardian hides her from the world like a dark secret, and she knows better than to push for answers.

But when she discovers she is hunted by the goddess Beheret, Gwyn is drawn into a deep and ancient tale: of chained gods and lost magic, of truths long buried and the rising of a war she never could have imagined.

Wizards and their magic-sniffing hounds pursue her – as does a stranger in a smiling mask, who calls her by an unfamiliar name…

But what really terrify her are the dangerous gifts she’s spent her life suppressing. Now, Gwyn must step out of the shadows and take charge of her destiny – even if the price is her own soul.

The Ninth Sorceress is the breathtaking first instalment of The Price of Magic, a sweeping fantasy saga full of rich storytelling and tangible magic.

January Wrap up | Trying a new bookish challenge & a couple of ARCs 🎍

 🎍 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings.❤️ Today I bring you a new post… my first Wrap Up of the year *happy celebration* where I’ll tell you ALL about my readings of the month. Super excited to be here for another year, sharing with you and having the beautiful possibility of expressing my thoughts on the books I read, so obviously, I’m very grateful to you for letting me be part of a bit of your life, means so much to me. 🥰 Now speaking briefly about the month, in general, I think it has been a pretty good month, I’ve heard many people say that it’s a very long month and that it has been slow but for me, personally, it has been super fast and I can’t believe that February almost starts, it’s crazy. I’m super excited for this new year on the blog and in my life in general, so I’m living it very peacefully, really feeling these new cycle vibes.

I really want this new year to be one of organization and planning for me, I’ve always been a person who has had multiple goals and this year I want to start working on them and learn to be focused 👏🏻, one of them was to be more organized and I think I’ve started well with it, especially in terms of the blog, I also wrote my first discussion post which I know sounds kind of simple, perhaps for many of you, but it has always been a huge challenge, and I dared myself to do it, finally, and have had such an amazing support of you all, like is so crazy… makes incredibly happy and encourages me to try to make more of those posts, it was a positive experience, really. 😍 Another of my goals is that I want to start several reading challenges for myself and also clean my TBR once and for all, and I’ve also done both, which you have surely seen on the blog during this January. I plan to continue this initiative next month and try to bring you more original posts and new ideas to share with you. THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT, my loves, keeps me wanting to create more and more. 😍 

In terms of reading, I think it has been a great month, you’ll see, as always in my statistics of the month below, but in summary, I’ve read most of my TBR and I’ve also been able to complete my challenge of reading a series chosen by you & I’m really excited about! It was a super fun experience. 💞  I’ve read a couple of ARCs with quite successful results, and I’ve also read a highly YA popular series… which I’m dying to tell you more about, so without further ado let’s start, and I hope you enjoy it! 🎍Read More »

So here we are!, VERY grateful that you’re still there and decide to share another year with me, it’s a blessing, today I’m very excited to share everything I plan to read during the month of January. 🥰
As I mentioned while planning my personal new reading challenges for this 2020, I decided to focus on reading some of the old popular YA trilogies/duologies/series that I’ve had on my bookshelf forever and haven’t read yet, I think and I hope it’s something entertaining for you, I want to read the entire series in the month and then I’ll make a unique post talking about each of the books, maybe with mini-reviews and stuffs. 👏🏻 What I’ve done is put a poll on Twitter so that everyone can vote and for this month we already have a winner, so super grateful for all the people who have voted, the winning series has almost the 60% of the votes, so I’m very excited to finally read it (I’ll tell you more about it down below)
Then I also have 3 ARCs for this month, I really didn’t expect them to be SO many but still, I’m excited to read them, I have 2 high-fantasies that I’m dying to share with you and a romance that sounds adorable. 😍
After EVERYTHING, and I know that I’m being ambitious, but hey, it’s what I want to do this year so let’s act as if it were normal 😂, I want to try to read a couple of popular romance books of 2019. I told you I wanted to start to read genres that I almost never read and since I already have a LOT of fantasy in my TBR for the month, I thought it would be a good idea to read a lighter romance, especially since it’s summer where I live and I would love to have some light options to take to the Beach.😎
This introduction is already much longer than I expected 😅, but I wanted to be able to explain my plans well to you, so now without further ado, let’s start with one of MANY TBRs to come! 🎍
