5-Star Book Predictions Update 🌟

 🌟 Hi, hermosos amigos! I hope you’re having a wonderful day surrounded by the best readings! ❤️ Today, I decided to bring you an update or something like a wrap-up of my 5-star book predictions, not only of the lists I’ve made for this year, but we’ll also review those predictions from last year to see how I’ve done. 😊 I was going through some old posts these days, thinking about what post to do and I realized that I had never brought you a complete update as such of all the 5-star prediction lists I’ve done over the years, and you know I LOVE doing those types of posts, as I think they’re a lot of fun, so I thought it was time to have all those books organized in one post to also review if I’ve been right about some of these readings with my predictions. 🤔
I think it will be fun to chat a little bit about each of these books, honestly, I was surprised to see that I’ve read most of them already, almost without realizing it, but I love it because this is a great opportunity to bring you this post 💫, share a little bit with you and obviously chat about how right I was about each book and which ones I’ve ended up being disappointed with.
I’d also love it if you could share your 5-star predictions with me, and I’d love to know how you’ve been doing with that! 👏🏻 

Obviously, I plan to create another one of these lists with new books soon, as I love doing it, it’s a great challenge that without even knowing it keeps you pretty motivated to read, so not only I’ll continue to do it, but I highly recommend it if you haven’t tried it yet. 🥰 It’s an interesting way to see how much you really know about yourself, what things you like to read or which ones are really for you and which ones aren’t.
Personally, I think it’s a lot of fun, so… I hope this will be a relaxed post, just to review a few of my past readings and have a post solely dedicated to my 5-star predictions. I hope you like it a lot, that you decide to share all your opinions with me and without further ado, LET’S GET STARTED!
 🌟 

‼️ PS: Any rating of 4.5-star will be taken as a win for me and as a completed goal, since by my standards a 4.5-star rating is too close to perfection, I’m just a bit picky sometimes. I’ll still take them as 5-star in this post.

 💞 All the links you need will be below, so you can check out my full reviews or add the book to your bookshelves.

Top 10 | 5-Stars Worthy Magical & Paranormal Books 🌙

 🌙 Hi, bookish friends! How are you today? I hope you’re having a wonderful day, and are enjoying the best reads.❤️ Today I’m super excited and happy to bring you the third part of this top 10 series I’ve been doing for a few months now, and I’m more than happy to continue this series, ending for now with what will be my top 10 books of magical realism, magical touches in general and some paranormal tones as well, books that, of course, I think are 5 stars worthy. 👏🏻👏🏻 If you’re interested in knowing a bit about the other previous posts, I’ll leave them right here so you can take a look at them: on one side we have, 5-Stars Worthy Contemporary Books & on the other side, 5-Stars Worthy High-Fantasy Books.
You may have already noticed that it wasn’t easy for me to give a specific title to this top because it makes more sense in my head than when I explain it for some reason 😅, but I hope it makes sense to you. What I wanted to do, in general, is to put in this top all those books that despite having fantasy touches none of them fit in the category of high-fantasy, and on the other hand, I also have books here that are contemporary but with strong touches of magic-realism, magic in general or that have some darker and paranormal aspect or out of the ordinary, you know? 🌟 I know it sounds complicated, but I swear it will make sense once you see them all together, as
I think they fit perfectly into this rare but magical category, which I must also confess that has some of my favorite books, so I’m super excited to share the list with you. 😊

Of course, I hope you can find new books to add to your TBR, and maybe read at some point, also you know I LOVE to know what you think, so feel free to tell me all about it in the comments and we can chat a bit. 🥰 Thank you SO much for supporting this series as well as every blog post, it means a lot to me, and now YES! get ready for lots of charming titles, get comfy, find your favorite drink & let’s get started! 🌙 

 💕 This post may contain too many beautiful covers, I recommend discretion.

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!

October Wrap Up | A Month Full of Spooky & Amazing Readings 🎃

🎃 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!
