The ruthless Empress Amara of Kraeshia has taken the Mytican throne, and now uncertainty looms over the three kingdoms. Since Lucia unleashed the fire Kindred, wreaking havoc throughout the land, Myticans have been looking for someone—anyone—they can trust. They believe in Amara, not knowing her grand promises are built on lies.

In Paelsia, Magnus and Cleo reluctantly follow King Gaius to the home of his exiled mother, Selia. Selia is a powerful witch and claims she can help unlock the magic of the Kindred—if the visitors agree to her terms. When Jonas arrives from Kraeshia, he is shocked to find that his rebel army now includes his sworn enemies. Along with Nic, Felix, and the mysteriously resurrected Ashur, the contentious group agrees to cast aside old grudges—for now—and united against their common enemy: Amara.

Meanwhile, bearing the child of a Watcher and feared by all, Princess Lucia travels across Mytica to find her family. But time is running out. The impending storm signals the dark prophecy Timotheus warned her about. Her fate is written, and it includes none other than the rebel Jonas. When their paths collied, Jonas and Lucia must decide between blindly following their destiny or fighting for their own free will.

The battle for power culminates at the Paelsian palace, where Amara resides. Rain pours. Blood spills. And soon all will discover that the darkest magic comes at an even darker price.

August 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 August, where I tell you about the readings that I’ve planned for this month. I think I’ve done a very good job with my reading last month, I didn’t read just 1 of the books that were in my TBR so I think it was pretty great. On the other hand, I would have liked to read a little more, since I feel that although I had time I was lacked a little motivation, sometimes happens I guess, so this month I’m very excited to start reading and I think my goal is to read at least 6 books, but we’ll see how it goes with that.
I’ve created my list for this month with enough anticipation, cause I already knew, more or less, the books that I want to read, I also have an ARC that I really excited about and I’ve decided to include a re-reading, that I’m doing right now, and a book that I’ve chosen from my TBR Jar.
I know you’ll be very happy when you see a couple of books here, because they’re a couple that I’ve been wanting to read since they came out and finally I’ll be doing it.🌸

I just want to put this here as a reminder: You don’t have to force yourself to finish reading a book if you just don’t feel like doing it. Reading is supposed to be fun and like a person who used to feel guilty to DNF books, I feel like you have to remember why we started reading in the first place, to be happy, not to feel bad about it 💕 


Lately I’ve been super interested in Read-A-Thons and Book Challenge because I wanted to try some, but honestly I have no idea where to start or where to look for, so if you have any advice about it or if you know any page where I could get information I would appreciate a lot you guys 😘 


As always I talk too much lol, so without further ado let’s start!…😄 Read More »

July Wrap Up [2018]

Copia de Copia de Copia de Copia de Copia de Copia de Copia de Copia de SPRINGTIME (1)

🌸 Hi Guys!, I hope you’re having a beautiful day, today I’ll share with you my July Wrap Up, where I tell you about the books that I’ve read during the month. I’m pretty comfortable with the amount of books I’ve read this month, especially since it’s what I usually read and I feel good about it, even so I hope I can read a little more next month.
Like every month I love to remind you that I love being here sharing this space with you, my 2 year blog anniversary is so close, so it makes me a bit nostalgic, I guess, but yes, super happy of the people I’ve met and everything I’ve learned. Really grateful.
Returning to our wrap up, I read 5 books this month and sadly, but for now, I didn’t finish one. I can safely say that it was a magical month, since absolutely all my readings have this main element that is magic, and you know that I love that aspect so I’m happy for it. Beside, I haven’t had any reading below the 3 stars, so I consider it a month of very good readings in general!. I hope everyone had an incredible month of reading🌸

I don’t want to delay this anymore so let’s get started!💕 Read More »

July TBR [2018]

Copia de Copia de SPRINGTIME (2)

🌸 Hi babes! I hope you’re having a great day. Today I bring you my TBR of the month of July, where I tell you about the readings that I’ve planned for this month. Well, as you have seen in my previous Wrap Up, I really haven’t been able to read a lot cause it has been a very busy month for me, so this month I feel a bit ambitious and I want to read everything, which is why I have many ideas and planned readings that I’m so excited to share with you. I think this month I will have enough time, besides work, isn’t such a busy month and I want to take my time to read, I feel I need it lol.
I plan to read 7 books, hopefully, this mont. It’s like a lot for me, I usually have an average of 5 books a month but still I feel very eager to try to push myself a bit and maybe I’ll achieve it, even if I don’t, it’s ok anyway. But, Wish me LUCK!🌸

💕 Before I start, I want to remind you that you guys are the best, thank you so much for the support I have from each and every one of you. I love checking all your posts and your blogs I think you all do such an incredible job and everyone deserves a great recognition for it, I’m sorry that sometimes I can’t read them all cause they’re a lot but I try to keep up to date because I love this kind of family that we all are part of, It’s a beautiful community with people who will always support you and listen to you and I just wanted to highlight this again and I hope it never changes💕

Let’s start!…

June Wrap Up [2018]

Copia de Copia de SPRINGTIME (1)

🌸 Hi Guys!, I hope you’re having a beautiful day, today I’ll share with you my June Wrap Up, where I tell you about the books that I’ve read during the month. Well this as I had predicted wasn’t a month of alot of readings, as I told you about in my TBR, I would be studying a lot this month because I have an important test in the first days of July, and that along with work and daily life made me have pretty much no time to read, and you know how to manage the time between reading, studying, working and having a blog is quite a struggle. Sometimes I think that we, book bloggers, need clones or something, that will be great lol. But, despite all this, I have really enjoyed everything I’ve read so I can say that it was amazing🌸
In other news, THE WINTER has come here!❄️ , and OMG this will be one of the coldest winters in my country and I’m kind of ready for it, with my blanket, my book and my coffee, surely I’ll be well haha. So jealous of all of you who are going through such warm climates, I miss summer, although I must say that spring has always been my favorite season.
Now going back to my reading, cause I always start to talk a lot lol …
I read a total of 3 books this month, I read fantasy, contemporary and historical fiction, which is GREAT, a quite varied month regarding genres.
The 3 books were fantastic and I can’t wait to tell you more about them, let’s start!🙌🏻
