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.

February Wrap Up & March TBR | The Month Where I Challenge Myself to Read More! ☀️

☀️ Hi, guys, I hope you’re having a beautiful day, full of good readings & incredible moments!! ❤️ SO happy to have a moment to be able to share with you everything that I’ve been reading in the month of February plus, everything that I plan and will try to read during this month of March. 🌟  I feel super excited to share another post with you this week, I know I’ve been the worst book blogger this year so far lol, I have no time for anything other than to dedicate myself to my business, and I really feel blessed by the opportunities I’m having in my personal life and the growth of my business is wonderful, I’m very happy with that, guys, but I still feel a little guilty at times for not being able to give you all the content and all the posts that I would like, so I’M SO SORRY! You know that I always think about my blog and you’re wonderful people, so I’ll always return here, which is my safe and favorite place in the world. 🥰 So, my loves, I’ll not be able to upload posts as much as usual but on my days off I’ll be here bringing you new and I hope, fun bookish content, so that we can both enjoy. 🥺

I had a very nice birthday, working, but at the same time I went to dinner with my loved ones and read ALL your beautiful comments, I haven’t had time to answer them yet, but I plan to do it very soon, I LOVE to see you’re there for me and your words made my day even better. 🥳 I have to tell you I’m SO excited about Shadow & Bone’s trailer 🦌, GUYS!!! I’m freaking out! I can’t wait to watch the series, I was so afraid that was kind of cheap, you know? but after seeing that trailer fragment… I’m in shock, I didn’t think it looked SO SPECTACULAR, and now I’m even more excited, I think the characters are perfect and the scenes are just as I imagined them. 😭  WHAT A GOOD TIME TO BE A GRISHA WORLD FAN!! PS: Have you seen Ben Barnes as The Darkling? SO GOOD!! & OMG, Jessie is the perfect Alina as much as Freddy is the perfect Kaz, and I won’t even mention how perfect Amita is as Inej!! my favorite characters looking beautiful! 💕


In other news, besides being absolutely excited about the Shadow & Bone TV series, I’ve also read a little, I haven’t even come close to reading what I wanted, but hey, I’m not going to complain anymore, at least I’ve read something, right? And that’s already good, also both readings have been very beautiful and have had precious messages that I’m dying to share with you. As you know, I’m trying to get used to my new schedules, so I knew it would take me a while, but also I blame my glasses this time😅, it turns out that they broke and I was devastated because reading is very difficult for me without them, I don’t have a lot of magnification on my glasses, but they’re perfect for reading without my head starting to hurt, you know? So it was a difficult thing to do, even when I had a little time. SO SO SO… My beautiful boyfriend gave me an INCREDIBLE pair of gold glasses for my birthday, so now I just have to go to the doctor, make new glasses for them, and then I’ll be ready to read a little more this month! YAY!! 😍😍 Do you wear reading glasses? Tell me, I’m interested in knowing.

I realized that the best way to organize myself this month is in fact to set small goals to achieve and thus be able to read more, also other things like visiting more blogs, answering comments, and that kind of thing. I’ll try to make my goals privately, which means, I’ll not share them here, I’ll do an experiment to see how it goes and if this new system works for me, then I’ll be sharing it with you, of course, so maybe you can also implement it in your days. 👏🏻 👏🏻  I want to THANK YOU very much for your support with my discussion post, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE writing them, makes me happy and gives me a lot of gratification to share with you and to exchange experiences, so THANK YOU, really, for trusting me and, for your beautiful and encouraging comments.❤️❤️ 
So, not to make this introduction longer, as I always do lol,
my reading plan for the month is basically very similar to the previous one, but I’ll add a couple more books replacing the books that I already read, I’m sorry if I’m repetitive, but I really want to read these books that I couldn’t read in February, so let’s do this! 🤩 I’m excited to share it with you & that you share with me your plans for this month too. I love you deeply, you’re extremely valuable, always remember that 🌹 & without further ado, let’s get started! ☀️

January Wrap Up & February TBR | Prioritizing 5-star Predictions during my Birthday Month! ☀️

☀️ Hi, guys, I hope you’re having a beautiful day, full of good readings & incredible moments!! ❤️ SO happy to have a moment to be able to share with you everything that I’ve been reading in the month of January plus, everything that I plan and will try to read during this month of February. 😍 I feel really blessed to have you there on the other side, you know that I’m very grateful for your love and support always always always, so thank you SO much for being there in each post. 💞 Today, as I said, I’ll be sharing my past and future readings with you!! You know that this year has started differently for me, I don’t have much time on my hands like before because not only I’m working on my current job, but I’m also spending a lot of time dedicated to a very special project that I’m creating together with my boyfriend, of which I hope to share more with you in future posts. Even so, and with all this happening in my day to day, I had to admit that I feel more than happy to be able to have moments like this one, where I can dedicate a few hours to my blog, and somehow this has made it feel more special for me, now I value more this place and the time that I dedicate to it is very treasured for me. 🥺✨ I’ve been trying to catch up with your posts, so I hope you’re feeling the love, soon I’ll be bringing some surprises to further support this community that I love so much.
The conclusion and the message I want to give for this month is:
CONTINUE DOING WHAT YOU LOVE NO MATTER WHAT!! 👏🏻 👏🏻 👏🏻

As for my readings, I’ve read a little more than December during the month of January, which doesn’t mean that I’ve read a lot really, but I’ve done a better job, and I celebrate that! 🙌🏻 I’m very excited because I’ve been trying more the audiobook format and it’s working wonderfully in those moments when I cannot read physically & also I’ve finished a trilogy that will remain forever in my heart. Plus, I’ve read a couple of ARCs that I’m very interested in talking to you about. In terms of reading quality, I think it has been a pretty average month, although I did enjoy a couple of these books, most of them have been something “meh” but well talk more about it later. 😊 

So, what do I plan to read during the month of February? Well, this month is special because it’s my birthday month, I’m turning 27 on the 22nd, so as a gift for myself I decided that I’ll be prioritizing my 5-star predictions, this means that I’m determined to find a 5-star book this month 🤩, and for that, I’ll be checking some lists I’ve made through time, of books that I think I’ll love, but I’ll also add some new releases from this year or last year that I think I’ll totally love to make it more fun. To be more honest with myself, I don’t expect to read each one of the books that I’ll put in my TBR, but they’ll be what I prioritize reading during the month, you know?. 😄 I hope this makes sense to you, and most of all, I hope you feel as excited as I am by all the fantastic books that I’ll include in the list. 😍 

I LOVE you, you’re incredible for just being here ❤️  & Without further ado, I hope you decide to stay with me during this post full of incredible books, so prepare coffee or a tea, and make yourself comfortable … because we start right now!! ☀️

2021 Goals & Top 5 Books I Want to Read this Year ⚡️

⚡️ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful day, surrounded by good readings and lots of love! ❤️ Today I’m here to bring you a combination of posts that I love doing at the beginning of each year and since I’m not having much free time I’ve chosen to do a kind of fun “mash-up” of both topics to chat a little with you about it.
Super excited to share with you my Goals for 2021 in terms of reading & blogging, as well as I will be showing you the 5 books I hope to read during the year. 😍 I always make a longer list with the books I want to read during the year, but I’ve realized that later I end up not reading them all and that’s frustrating, so I prefer to create a smaller list and make sure I stuck with it. To make the post more fun and to make my readings more varied, I’ll be playing around with the categories where I’ll place each book, for example, varying the genres as well as the release dates and others. 👏🏻
As for my goals for the year,
this 2021 I have many personal goals that I could share with you later, of course, but this time in this post I choose to share with you all those goals related to blogging and my readings.
I hope you enjoy the post, my loves, I’m happy to have the possibility to share with you and above all, I’m excited that you also share with me what plans you have for this new year, you know that I love knowing what you think and exchanging opinions is so much fun! 😊
Thank you SO much for choosing to stay for one more post,
you’re wonderful 🥺, I hope you like it! Make yourself your favorite drink, and get comfortable because I’m ready to START! ⚡️

All the Books on my Priority List ☀️

 ☀️ Hi guys, I hope you’re having an incredible day, full of good readings & beautiful moments! ❤️ Today I’m super excited to finally come to share with you my finalized PRIORITY LIST with all the books that I’ll be prioritizing from now on when creating my monthly TBRs. 👏🏻 As you already know, because you’re always there to support all my crazy ideas (I LOVE YOU! 😍 ), I had created, a couple of months ago, a series of posts called “Colorful Bookish Sundays” where I was trying to organize the books in my TBR, each Sunday I shared with you 15 books of different colors of which 5 are high in my TBR, which means that I’m dying to read them and they sound wonderful, but I set myself the challenge of choosing only 2 each Sunday to add to this one that’s my list of priorities and thus begin to read them every month. 😊
I had a lot of fun, I was a little sad that this series has come to an end, but I’m excited about everything that will come, THANK YOU SO MUCH for joining me and supporting my series, it means a lot to me, I also love to be able to chat with you about books, it’s always my main goal.❤️
So now that I’ve finished organizing my TBR,
I’ve been able to create this list that has 20 books which I’ll be, obviously, prioritizing in the coming months. My main goal is to finish reading all of them before adding anything else to this list, I see this as a goal for 2021 and that’s fine, I already have my TBRs quite created for the next 2 months, so I’ll be using this list more for next year, I think it’s a more realistic goal for me.
I’m super excited to share my list with you, you know I want to know everything you think about these books in the comments below, so don’t hesitate to let me know! 🥺 I hope you enjoy the post, that maybe you can find new readings & without further ado, let’s get started!

Colorful Bookish Sundays | Prioritizing Books from my TBR 🩰

☀️ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day, full of good readings & amazing moments.❤️ Super excited for today’s post, this is the beginning of a new series of super chill posts that I’ll be bringing you every Sunday from now on! YAY!! 🥳 These will be our “Colorful Bookish Sundays” and it will be, basically, to organize my priority list, choosing some books from my Goodreads TBR to add to my list which I’ll check every month when creating my monthly TBRs, that way I hope to start reading those books that I’m most excited about, so they don’t end up in my TBR for years as many of them are already doing  😅 
You may not know this, but I have a mini book list that I go to when I build my TBR every month, but it’s super outdated and I’ve been wanting to renew it for a while now, so I thought it would be a fun and different idea to do it, and also share with you the process and know your thoughts, which always helps me a lot to make decisions.

I’m looking to give to this post series a fun and relaxed look, so I decided to show you a specific color every Sunday, I LOVE some good beautiful covers and even more when there’s a beautiful color palette in them, so I think it could be interesting organize them by color, chat a little about them, and as always try to organize myself better with my books and my future readings  😍 & you can know what color we’ll play every Sunday based on the icon that will accompany the title, but I’ll also let you know below.

The dynamic will be to show you the selected books and then separate them by categories to finally make a decision of which one/ones will be my choice to add to my list of priorities and obviously, I would love to know what you think about them!  👏🏻 👏🏻 👏🏻 

This is an idea in progress, to be honest with you I’ve been thinking about it for only a couple of days, so there are details that I’m still thinking about and working on, but I’m generally happy to bring you posts on Sundays again, it seems like a fun idea and hopefully, it will be entertaining for both you and me. 🥺  I hope you like it, I know it sounds weird now and you’re probably thinking “Sofi, what are you doing?”  😂  but have patience, I promise I’ll do my best and we’ll see how the idea progresses over time. I LOVE YOU ❤️, thanks for the constant support, it means a lot to me, so now get comfortable, prepare your favorite drink and let’s start! ☀️

Mid-Year Freak Out Book Tag | 2020 🎍

🎍 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having an incredible day and a very nice week, especially enjoying all your reading.❤️ 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 Tag 😍. 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. 🤞🏻 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. 😊 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! 🎍

TBR Lows & Highs #18 🌙

🌙 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful day full of good readings. Super excited cause this weekly series will be focused on helping me clean my Goodreads shelves and also prioritize some readings and organize myself in general. I LOVE this idea, I know that many of you already know it and do it as well, the creator is the incredible: Destiny | Howling Libraries | 💫 whom I love as a human being and I respect a lot as a book blogger ❤️, so it’s really a pleasure to start with this new project especially because it’s created by someone who I admire a lot and that makes me very happy, I also really need help to organize my books, So here we go! 👏🏻 

I wanted to give it my own twist to make it more fun and also fit my needs or what I hope to do with my books and my readings. So I’ve decided that as well as Destiny, I’ll be opening voting every week so that you can participate in the whole process and help me decide which books to prioritize, for this: I’ll ask you to vote for one of the books in the “LOWS” section and not only I’ll be adding it to my priority list, but I’ll also be creating my own TBR Jar with each of your choices!. So, every week the book you choose from my selection will be added to my TBR Jar and then at the end of the month, I’ll choose one of them to read and finally give a real chance to it. I’ll not be removing all my “LOWS”, only some if necessary, maybe one per week or sometimes none, I’ll be super honest about them and I hope you can help me make a decision anything can happen in these posts! LOL 🥰 

I hope you like this idea, I think it will be fun, I’ll be cleaning my Goodreads shelves a bit, which is great, but you can also participate in the process and so will have a super interactive experience, so we can all have a little fun ❤️. I hope you enjoy it, thanks for the support always, from the bottom of my heart & LET’S START! 🌙Read More »
