 🌸 Hi Guys!, I hope you’re having a beautiful day, today I’ll share with you my September Wrap Up, where I tell you about the books that I’ve read during the month. I feel so pleased with myself for everything I’ve managed to read this month, not only because the quantity is good, but for the quality, as I always say, and also because this month I managed to read all the books that were in my TBR and I could even read one and a half more, so YAY! I’m really happy with my month, it has been amazing, I’ve also had a new experience that was participating in the Contemporary-A-Thon and it was really fun. I think that thanks to the read-a-thon I’ve pushed myself to read more and discover that I’m capable of. So I hope to be able to participate again in another one, I don’t know if this year, but we’ll see, the important thing is that I had an incredible time and also I could share it with all of you which is what makes me happy 💕

This month I read 7 books, which is incredible for me, so as I said before, super happy with my amount. We have a lot of contemporary, of course, among them mystery, romance and a new format which has greatly surprised me, but also a dystopic re-reading. I haven’t had really bad readings, like BAD ones, well maybe one lol, but I can say that I’ve enjoyed almost everything that I’ve read, in different levels, but I did. I read a total of 2369 pages, OMG that sounds like a lot, I don’t usually count my pages read but I think it can be an incentive for me, so I maybe start doing it

I’ve reached 1000 followers on my Twitter, and this is not something that I’m obsess about, in fact before I didn’t even look at it, but I feel so grateful for the support and love that I’ve felt in that social network, as well as here on the blog, so I just wanted to say that if you’re one of those people who actually follows me somewhere, here, on Twitter or even Goodreads, I’m infinitely grateful to you, really. It feels like a lot of love and it’s a great incentive to continue giving the best of me every day

And now, without more further ado, I’m dying to tell you all about my readings of this month…Read More »

Elliot has lived his first thirteen years confined to his home, incapacitated by fear. Now he’s out of pills, snow is falling, and his only safe person is missing. A terrifying thriller from Carnegie Medalist Kevin Brooks.

From the moment of his birth, Elliot’s life has been governed by fear of almost everything, even of his own fear — a beast that holds him prisoner in his room. The beast is kept at bay, though not eliminated, with a daily regimen of pills. But on Christmas Eve, a mix-up at the pharmacy threatens to unleash the beast full force, and his mother must venture out in a raging snowstorm to a store that should be only minutes away. Hours later, when she still hasn’t returned, Elliot sees no choice but to push through his terror, leave the house, and hunt for her. What happens if the last of his medication wears off and the beast starts scratching at the doors of his mind? Everyone has a breaking point — will Elliot come to his? With plot twists and turns that keep readers on the edge of their seats, multi-award-winning author Kevin Brooks offers a high-suspense exploration of fear and what it means to truly be afraid.

New ARCs Recently Approved 🌟

☕️ Hi guys I hope you’re having an amazing day!. Today I decided to bring you something different, a while ago since I don’t show you the advanced reader copies that so kindly publishers and authors give me to review, and in part this is because I honestly haven’t been requesting so often, since due to the new laws that some pages have imposed it’s now really difficult for an international blogger like me to be approved with an ARC. Even so, sometimes miracles happen lol, and now that I have accumulated a decent amount of books to show you, I’ve decided to do it. Maybe it’s not a post that I’ll start doing often cause of everything I told you before, but even so I’ll try to do it every time I want to share with you some ARCs that I receive.
Here below I’ll specify where each copy is from, but most will always be from pages as NetGalley and Edelweiss, and sometimes from authors as well☕️
I hope you enjoy it!💕Read More »
