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.

Their parents are all clear on one point–not going is not an option. This could be the opportunity to get back into Grandmother’s good graces. But when the cousins arrive on the island, it’s immediately clear that she has different plans for them. And the longer they stay, the more they realize how mysterious–and dark–their family’s past is.

The entire Story family has secrets. Whatever pulled them apart years ago isn’t over–and this summer, the cousins will learn everything.

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! 🌻

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.

October TBR [2018]

Copia de Copia de Copia de Copia de Copia de Copia de Copia de Copia de SPRINGTIME (5)

🎃 Hi babes! I hope you’re having a great day. Today I bring you my TBR of the month of October, where I tell you about the readings that I’ve planned for this month. October, as we all know, is the the horror month and another thing that I like as much as watching horror movies is reading books with a spooky or mystery theme, so that’s exactly what I’ll be doing this month. I think I created a great list, which has me very excited, but in fact, I planned a totally different one at first, but then I changed my mind at the last moment and I think this list fits much better with the theme of this month.
I did such a good job with my reading in September, that I honestly feel excited about adding a little more books than usual to my list this month, I’ll not be pushing myself so hard, but I want to have several choices in case I can read them all, which is always the goal, but even if I can’t, it will be fine. I have 7 book in my TBR: some ARCs, New Releases, another re-reading, which I’m really enjoying doing and an exciting surprise!🎃

🌸I’ll be having vacations this month, I think for 2 weeks,they’ll start on the 16th, we plan this with my boyfriend during the year and I’ll be taking a break from the blog for that weeks. Don’t get me wrong, I love doing this and this blog is my baby, but every year I always need to have some time for myself, it helps me a lot to rest, for myself and for my mental health of course. But then I’ll return as always, I’ll be obviously reading during those days that I’m not here and when I return I’ll tell you everything about it 🌸Read More »

“My Blog’s Name in Books” Book Tag & 2000 Thanks! 🤗

A Book. A Thought. has reached 2000 followers!

Image result for happy emotional gif

🌸 Guys!, I bring you excellent news today, in general I never post on Sunday but I’m so excited about this that I can’t wait to share this news with you.🌸 
The blog has reached the wonderful amount of 2000 followers (2004 so far) and I have nothing but thanks words to all of you who have pressed that little button to subscribe to my blog, either via WordPress or by e-mail, to follow all my content.
I have so many feelings right now, THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY.
The only thing I can think is that you’re all really the best, each one of those beautiful 2000 people who have decided to give me their support are incredible. THANK YOU!
I remember telling you, when I just reached the 1000 followers, how proud I was of what I had created, and I still am, every day that I see my blog grow and grow I feel that I have created a unique space, something wonderful where I can share my love for reading with all of you. Also what I appreciate most about this amazing community is the support I have felt from all of you from the beginning, not only since I created the blog but since joining Goodreads so long ago.
I remember starting to write some very short reviews, because my English was a disaster lol (still not so good, I know lol) and I was so embarrassed to make the ridiculous, I mean, I had that fear that people would get upset cause I was writing in a language that, although I loved and was very excited to learn, I still didn’t handle it at all. And on the contrary I found myself with so adorable and sweet people that supported me and pushed me to continue and not give myself up, to be better and honestly every day today after almost 4 years of belonging fully to the bookish community I feel that it has been one of the best things I’ve done, it’s a constant learning experience, a lot of fun, where you meet lovely people and share your bookworm thoughts with other people who think and feel like you, it’s just wonderful. 😍 
I don’t want to do this excessively long, cause I’m starting to feel too emotional, just remember that from my small place in the world you’ll always have my support, I want you to continue doing what you love, to fight for your dreams and be very happy.
🌸 Thank you so much guys!🌸 Read More »
