Book Recommendations | Books with Weird & Unusual Plots 🌘

 🌘 Hi, friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful day, full of the best readings.❤️ Today I’m super excited because I bring you a post that I’ve been wanting to do for a couple of weeks, I thought it would be fun to share with you my favorite books with the strangest and most peculiar plots. 👏🏻  If you follow my blog for a while you already know that I adore rare books that come out of the box and dare to do something new and innovative with their plots, especially I LOVE when mundane or everyday life is mixed with paranormal, strange elements, or magic, as well as I love plots that focus a little on giving life to their characters and settings, taking the time to develop them in an atmospheric and addictive way, but never leaving aside that strange and kind of dark vibe that pushes you to keep reading to know what will happen. 😍  These are the types of books that are 100% for me, that’s why in this post I wanted to bring them all here together to share them with you.

I know that this type of book will not be for everyone, and that’s fine, I like to bring you particular and different things so that we can also share our experiences and thoughts, so if it isn’t for you, that’s super valid too, let me know all in the comments. 😊 So, as I was saying, this time it will be all about atmospheric, dark, and kind of twisted books at times, without a doubt, they all have the same characteristic that they’re all dark and involve a bit of the horror genre at times in different measures. 🌲 But they’re all highly addictive books with unexpected twists and gripping mysterious plots, so I highly recommend them if these are factors that resonate with you. 🌟 
In addition,
I’ve also decided to include some books with these characteristics that I haven’t read yet, but they’re in my TBR so you can have more options and also add them to your TBR if you want.
So without further ado, I hope you enjoy this post very much, have an entertaining moment & LET’S GET STARTED!

So today’s post, as I already mentioned, is the post where I share with you my top with my favorite books of the year, but unlike most of my tops this time the order is important because I’ll be ordering them from my least favorite to my most favorite book of the year, with this I hope to make the post more fun and it’s also like a little challenge for me that I find fun. 👏🏻 Even so, and with that said, it doesn’t mean that I don’t love each of these books so much, from the lowest position to the highest is being part of my list of faves, so obviously I’ve loved all of them. I hope you can add many books from this list to your own TBR and read them to love them as much as I have, I’m so excited to share this list with you! 😊

🎃 Hi guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings.❤️ Today I bring you a new post… my October Wrap Up! where I’ll tell you ALL about my readings of the month. I’m super happy to have shared the month of October with you and besides, being here to share everything about my readings, you know that I LOVE horror, so I had a really fun month, watching a lot of horror movies and reading some pretty creepy stuff, and, in general, I’m quite happy with what I’ve been able to do during the month. 😊 In my personal life, it has been my mother’s birthday, and being able to spend it with her despite everything that’s happening in the world has been a blessing, always keeping in mind how lucky I’m to have my family close and to be able to visit them more often, that has really brought me very nice energy to my month, I’ve also resumed my morning walks 👏🏻, now that everything is a little calmer the activities are being regulated better in my province, so I’ve had a little more freedom, always using a facemask, guys, super important, let’s take care of each other! So it has been a beautiful month, I’m also planning and working a little on my WIP, but I’ll start writing as such in November, like many of us I’ll be participating in Nanowrimo and super excited about it, because it will be my first time so we’ll see, maybe I’ll be sharing a bit of that with you next month. 🥺 🥺 🥺 


Of course, I want to thank you for all the support and love you’ve given me and my blog this month, it has been wonderful and it’s always a great blessing to see all those comments and likes and visits, at the end of the day to think that so many people have been taking their time to interact with me really means a lot, so thank you, my friends, you’re wonderful & I’m here super excited for another month together! 💞

Now about my reading month, I think I would have liked to do better and maybe read one more book, but most of myself is like super happy with what I’ve achieved, during the previous month I’ve reached a much-needed harmony about how I manage my time and being kind to myself has been first, I’m very happy to have so many passions and reading, regardless of the number of books, it will always be one of them, so I’m truly happy for each book I read. 🥰
I’ve participated in two readathons this month, one of them is
Hocus Pocus Readathon & the other is Gothtober Readathon, if you want to know more about them you can check my October TBR. I’ve had a lot of fun with both, I’ve combined several of my readings to make it easier for myself and I double up some challenges and promps, so I’ve done quite well in both. 🙌🏻 I think the positive of any readathon is feeling motivated to read and feel that emotion, you know? so super accomplished! 🥳 
What I’m most excited about my readings this month is that everything I’ve read I’ve enjoyed, I didn’t have a single bad reading this month, which is INCREDIBLE 😍, you know that I’m quite picky with the books I read, so it’s a pleasant surprise.
I had a couple of readings that surprised me a lot, giving me much more than I expected from them. I’ve had another couple of readings with very shocking, intense, and interesting stories & Others spooky but adorable with incredible characters.
 👻 

So, sorry to make my introduction always so long, don’t hate me 😂, & without further ado, let’s get started, I’m excited to share my readings with you! 🎃

Book Review | Burn Our Bodies Down by Rory Power

TitleBurn Our Bodies Down

By: Rory Power

SeriesNO

Pages: 352

PublishedJuly 7th, 2020

By: Delacorte Press

Genre: YA – Horror – Mystery/Thriller- Contemporary (LGBT+)

Buy itBook Depository


From the author of the New York Times bestseller Wilder Girls comes a new twisty thriller about a girl whose past has always been a mystery—until she decides to return to her mother’s hometown . . . where history has a tendency to repeat itself.

Ever since Margot was born, it’s been just her and her mother. No answers to Margot’s questions about what came before. No history to hold on to. No relative to speak of. Just the two of them, stuck in their run-down apartment, struggling to get along.

But that’s not enough for Margot. She wants family. She wants a past. And she just found the key she needs to get it: A photograph, pointing her to a town called Phalene. Pointing her home. Only, when Margot gets there, it’s not what she bargained for.

Margot’s mother left for a reason. But was it to hide her past? Or was it to protect Margot from what’s still there?

The only thing Margot knows for sure is there’s poison in their family tree, and their roots are dug so deeply into Phalene that now that she’s there, she might never escape.

Spooky Books #1 | Rare & Twisted Plots 🎃

🎃 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful and spooky day, enjoying all your readings.❤️ Today is the beginning of a series of posts where I’ll be sharing with you some lists and recommendations of spooky books so that you can add to your TBR and maybe read at some point! 😍 I’m SO excited to share the horror season with you, you know that I LOVE everything that has to do with horror, so it’s a pleasure for me to be putting together these lists full of interesting books for you.
I’ve decided to divide these posts into Lists and Recommendations due to the fact that some of the books I’ve read but others not, and I decided anyway to include those books that are in my TBR but I haven’t read yet, to make this series more interesting and be able to bring you more spooky titles to you to check out. 👏🏻 Obviously, I can’t talk in-depth about the ones I haven’t read, but I can tell you that I’m 100% interested in reading them and they sound INCREDIBLE, so I know they could also be of interest to you.

This time I brought you a list of more than 10 books with super spooky, creepy, twisted, and above all, weird plots. 🦇  I don’t know about you guys, but I’m a big fan of plots where you don’t really know what the hell is going on, but you’re just can’t put the book down cause you feel you’re so entertaining and hooked about it. I love those vibes of suspense, tension, and discomfort that this type of plot can generate 😨, but I also know that they’re not for everyone, I think that these types of books will be focused on a number of specific readers, BUT I still wanted to do this list because I personally love this kind of books, and know that if there’s someone out there like me, then they’ll have a source to turn to. Anyway, if weird plots aren’t your jam, these books feature similar factors that I love too, like family dynamics, beautiful aesthetics & super atmospheric surroundings. 🥰
I hope you like my list and that you can find new books to enjoy, you know I love doing this and share it with you, so thanks for always being there ❤️ & without further ado, let’s get started!

October TBR | Trying to read all my spooky books: Hocus Pocus Readathon & Gothtober Readathon 🎃

🎃 Hi, my beautifull 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 October. Guys, I’m SO EXCITED cause the horror month has officially begun and it’s one of my favorite months of the year because if you don’t know it yet, you should know that I LOVE everything that has to do with scary things: movies, books, EVERYTHING. 😍 So like every year I will be watching many spooky series and horror movies, as well as those that are within the genre like, mystery or suspense, and obviously, I’m here today to share with you ALL my readings, of course, that are super spooky and disturbing, so really really excited and happy that this season begins. 👻 Here in Argentina, there’s no such thing as Halloween, so I’ll be celebrating it on my own, like every year!!! and I hope you stay there all this month accompanying me, I’ve planned some spooky recommendations and other posts that I’m really excited about to share with you, so stay tuned, it will be a beautiful and creepy month! 🥳 
As always before I start to tell you a bit about my plans for the month, I want to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all the support and love you have given me the previous month, I’m SOOOO happy to have you in my life, you have no idea, this blog means the world for me, as well as being part of this community that’s so wonderful. 💞  I LOVE YOU, ALWAYS & ALWAYS.
 🥺 🥺 🥺 


So, I plan this month to participate in two readathons, I really couldn’t choose only one and LOVE the ideas of both, the creators have been super original and you can see both have worked so hard, so I want to give my support by participating, it will be SO MUCH FUN. 👏🏻
The first will be
Hocus Pocus Readathon 🧙🏻‍♀️, a Readathon that I’m sure you’ve heard mentioned, is created by @pagesnink and @werewolflious & takes place from October 1st until the 31st. I LOVE that in this Readathon we have Teams: “Team Sanderson Sisters”, “Team Undead” & “Team Trick or Treaters”. Each Team has its own prompts, as well as each Team also has a Strength and a Weakness, all of which is perfectly detailed on Twitter, where you’ll find a thread with all the information you need to know, also where you can join to win points for your team. In my case, I’ll be #TEAMSANDERSONSISTERS and super excited for my team, and I have a very exciting stack to share with you later.
On the other hand, we have
Gothtober Readathon 💀, which let me tell you, it has some BEAUTIFUL graphics, you can see the work put into it and I simply love each of the promps that I’ll later be sharing with you. This Gothic Readathon is hosted by @ladette_M, @Oliviascatastro, and @llittlewolf_ & will be taking place throughout the whole month of October as well. This also has a wonderful thread on Twitter where you can go to see all the info and also some recommendations for each prompt, which I’ll share with you below.

I’ve been able to put together a stack with books that I’ll be convincing and repeating for many of the prompts of both Readathons, so I don’t have to read one for each prompt because it would be impossible for me to do so. But I’m really happy with what I accomplished, I have a decent stack of spooky books that I’m very excited to read.  🥰 To be honest with you I’ll not be prioritizing my ARCs this month, I want to mention it directly because I have to be true to myself and this month I feel like I want to read other things, and that’s fine, even so, I always enjoy my ARCs and love the possibility of being able to be approved for each one of them, so I’ll read more in November. 😊
And I think that’s it, hope I don’t forget to mention anything, I’m super excited about jumping right into what’s important right and sharing ALL my readings for this month with you, so without further ado, make yourself comfortable, prepare a delicious coffee &
LET’S START! 🎃

 🌟 Hi guys! I hope you’re having an amazing day.❤️ Today as the title says I come to share with you some ARCs that I’ve been so fortunate to receive recently. I don’t usually do this type of posts so often because I never have an appropriate amount of ARCs to show you at the same time, so now that I have put together a small stack to show you, here I am, and I hope you enjoy it. SO grateful to NetGalley and the publishers who were so kind to approve me and send me these ARCs I’ll be sharing with you today. 🥰

I already made three of these posts showing you my new ARCs stack, so if you’re interested to know what those books are, I’ll leave you the links 12 & 3 😍

Always grateful and blessed for every ARC that comes to me, I can’t wait to read them and I’m dying to know what you think about them, so let me know everything in the comments, LOVE YOUUUUU & LET’S START! 🌟
