 ๐ŸŒฟ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful day full of good readings.โค๏ธ Here I am again, my loves, I’ve been super absent in the last week because I’ve got a new job that requires 100% of my time and honestly I haven’t been able to find a moment to dedicate to the blog, or even to read, because when I get home at night I just want to sleep, you know? Anyway, I’m grateful to get back to work and I hope everything goes well with that for me *fingers crossed* ๐Ÿฅบ but I still wanted to come back today to share a new post with you, this time it’s MY FAVORITE POST OF THE YEAR! And it’s because I share my favorite books I’ve read over the past year and we can chat a bit about them. I don’t know how many posts I’ll be capable of uploading from now on, but I promise to do my best to at least bring you one quality post per week, but I’ll see that over time. I want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH at the bottom of my heart for the support and love that I still receive from you, even when I’m not being active within the community as I used to be, that means a lot to me, I promise that every time I have free time I’ll use it to check other blogs and support you as I’ve always tried to because even though my life is a bit crazy now my feelings haven’t changed, I love this community and I love blogging as much as reading, so I’ll continue to do so. ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜

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! ๐Ÿ˜Š 

I hope that each of you had a beautiful Christmas and have an even better New Year, surrounded by your loved ones and if you can’t, cause “pandemic” then I send you all my pure love just for you, I’m sure 2021 will be full of blessings for all of us.  ๐Ÿฅฐ Now, without further ado, I’m SO excited to be writing this post and sharing all these wonderful books with you, so let’s get started!!

Favorite 2020 New-to-Me Authors ๐Ÿ–‹

 ๐Ÿ–‹ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having an incredible day full of good readings and beautiful moments! โค๏ธ Today I bring you a post where we will chat a little about new authors that I’ve met this year and have loved. Sometimes I think that it’s also super important to give the author who is behind such wonderful works the place he/she deserves, so I’m very excited to tell you a little about these six incredible writers. ๐Ÿ˜
I think this year has been super positive for me in terms of finding new authors that I’ve loved and I’m dying to try again, and I think it’s incredible because last year I had good new authors for me too, but this time in addition to it, many of these books will be among my favorites of the year too because WOW, I just can’t pick other authors this time. ๐Ÿฅบ In general, I don’t like being repetitive in these types of posts, I mean I don’t like talking about a book and then bringing you another end of the year post with the same book, you know? but this time I can’t help it because I really LOVE the style of each of these authors and although it may be a bit of a spoiler for my top favorites of the year, I’ve decided to include them anyway and give them the recognition they deserve as writers.  ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
 ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป 
So this 2020 I’ve chosen authors that for me have stood out a lot for different reasons, but all have made me feel SO many emotions while reading their books, so that’s why I’m dying to give them a second chance in 2021! ๐Ÿ”ฅ Below each of them, I’ll specify why I was captivated by their writing style and thus be able to provide you with a post with much detail. ๐Ÿ˜Š
I hope you enjoy the post and that you can find new authors to enjoy too & without further ado let’s get started, my love!

Book Recommendations | Standalone Books Edition ๐ŸŒฒ

 ๐ŸŒฒ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day, having incredible moments, and reading the best books.โค๏ธ Today as it’s Friday I feel like bringing you a fun recommendation post of those that I LOVE creating & sharing with you, so we can have a relaxed moment and hopefully add a lot of books to your TBR. I realized that 2 years ago I finished with my series where I recommended only standalone books, and OMG, I can’t believe I didn’t make another list of my recommendations in two years. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ Obviously, I’ve already read many more standalone books to share with you and I’m very excited to bring you these types of lists because I know that sometimes it can be a challenge to choose what to read next, right? so I want you to have a resource here on my blog and a small place where you can go if you need recommendations. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป 

So how will this be? You know that I like to give a special touch and a different thing to my recommendation posts since I want it to be a fun experience for you and that you can also really feel they’re more personalized recommendations where I think that hopefully, you can find the perfect book just for you. ๐Ÿ’•  That’s why this time I’ve decided to classify the books by categories according to how they’ve made me feel while reading them so you can find the one that resonates best with you and your reading tastes. For example, I have classified those standalone with a magical touch, those more complex and you can even find some lighter ones to enjoy.  ๐Ÿ˜Š 

If you want to know my complete thoughts on each of the books you can do so by clicking on the names of the books, which will take you directly to my review without spoilers  ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป 

I hope you like this idea very much, I always try to bring you the best of me and that we can have a good time together and chat a little about books because that’s why we are here, right?  ๐Ÿฅฐ 
Thank you SO SO much for the infinite support, you know that I feel it very deeply in my heart and I treasure every comment, like and shared that you give to my posts, I put a lot of love in my work and the recognition is always a blessing. Thank you, mis amores, for being there always ๐Ÿฅบ & now, let’s get started, I’m super excited! ๐ŸŒฒ Read More »

My Favorite Books of the Year so far | 2020 โญ๏ธ

โญ๏ธย Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings and good vibes.โค๏ธย I can’t believe we’re halfway through the year, can you believe it? It’s crazy for me, but here we are again at this moment when we have to set priorities again and look back a little, to see how our year has been so far. This is why today I bring you a list of my favorite books of the year so far! ย ๐Ÿ˜ย I know that this is a super popular post within the blogging community, so you’ve probably seen it, but looking at my own blog I saw that I didn’t do this post since 2018, and I don’t know why because I like it so much, so I brought it here back. I think it will be fun to share with you those books that I’ve loved so far, tell you a little about them, and this is kind of an excuse for recommending them as well because I promise you that each one of them is brilliant and unique in its own way. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปย 
This list doesn’t have any type of specific order, the books are randomly positioned and in addition to sharing some keywords of each one, because I think it’s fun, I’ll also leave you some links in case you’re interested in reading them, which I hope you are so because they’re WONDERFUL. I’ve been blessed with the possibility of reading all these books, so I hope you like the post, I’m very excited to share it with you.ย ๐Ÿฅฐย ย I LOVE you, thanks for the support, always, and without further ado, let’s get started!โญ๏ธRead More »

Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag | 2020 ๐ŸŽ

๐ŸŽ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having an incredible day and a very nice week, especially enjoying all your reading.โค๏ธย Today I’m super excited because believe it or not, that moment of the year has come again where we’re going to summarize a little how my year of reading is going so far with this tag that called: The Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tagย ๐Ÿ˜. I can’t believe that the year is happening so fast, but somehow I’m glad because it’s one of the most intense years for humanity, so I hope that next year will be better and we’ll be more peaceful, calm and healthy.ย ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿปย I confess that it’s not being my best year in terms of reading, but I think it makes sense because it’s due a lot to the times we’re living, and especially to stress and things, so I’m not bothered by what I’ve read, and I know I still have many months ahead of me to find incredible books. I hope that your year is going in the best way possible and above all, that you’re finding great readings to escape a little of all thing happening, but don’t be so hard on yourself if you haven’t been able to read as much as you want, these are difficult times, so it’s ok to dedicate more time to yourself and to do other things.ย ๐Ÿ˜Šย I hope you enjoy the tag, my love, I’m super excited to share with you many of my readings from this 2020, I always have a lot of fun doing this tag, and it will also be interesting to see a summary of my year answering each question. So without further ado, LET’S START! ๐ŸŽ

ย ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆย Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day and for all the members of the LBGT+ community, HAPPY month, my loves, be proud of yourself always: love is love! โค๏ธย Today I’m very excited to bring you this compilation of many books featuring LGBT+ characters and also many of them own voices, which is super important, all this to celebrate this pride month as every year. This is also a super important post because always through them, like many blogger friends, we try to promote the reading of own voices’ authors within the LGBT+ community, in order to continue teaching and showing the world that there’s nothing more beautiful than love in all its forms.ย ๐Ÿฅฐย 
Also, I want to share with you, because you’re my family too: last month my brother has decided to come out to me and we have shared a really unique moment, he represents himself as bisexual, and although he’s still not sure because he’s only 16 years old and he’s still discovering about how he feels and how he represents himself, I’m 100% a proud big sister, he’s my younger brother and I couldn’t admire his strength and courage more at every step he takes in his life. It makes me want to cry, I’m just SO excited and happy for himย ๐Ÿ˜ญย ๐Ÿ˜ญ ๐Ÿ˜ญ,ย so I just wanted to share this experience with you, and also speak directly to all the families and beings in the world who come here, and transmit the love and support that you should always have with the beings that you love and the respect and admiration that you must feel for their choices. We come to the world to evolve so accept, love, and be happy, we are all a miracle.ย ๐Ÿ˜ย 
So, super excited to share this incredible list of 2020 releases with you, many of them you may have already seen me talk about here on the blog or many of them are already on many of my lists, but I still wanted to put each title together so you have a resource to go to fill your TBR with more and more diversity and loveย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป. Now, without further ado, let’s start! ย ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ

May Wrap Up | Unexpected Readings, A Popular Trilogy & Great Sequels ๐Ÿ‚

๐Ÿ‚ย Hi guys! I hope youโ€™re having a beautiful day full of good readings.โค๏ธ Today I bring you a new postโ€ฆย my May Wrap Up! where Iโ€™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. ๐Ÿ˜ขย 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. โค๏ธย 


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. ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปย 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. ย ๐Ÿ˜ย  I’m sure that each comment in that post could be a word of encouragement for someone else and that makes me very happy!ย ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿปย

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!) ย ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปย 
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. ย ๐Ÿ˜Šย 
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.ย ๐Ÿฅฐย I hope you enjoy it and without further ado, let’s get started! ๐Ÿ‚Read More »
