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!! ☀️

PS: Thank you for understanding that I don’t have so much time on my hands right now, every comment of support and love that I’ve received has made me move to tears. Knowing that you support me and will not forget me has made me feel deeply fortunate 😭 .

So today I’ll share with you first, my readings for December, which have obviously been much less than I expected, but they were still positive & I’ll also share with you my readings for this month!! I’m very excited about that because I plan to give my reading a little change and give myself something lighter, so I can read while I adjust to my new job and new schedules. 😊  So even though I won’t be able to read as much as always, I still hope to find wonderful readings this year so that I can continue to share only the best with you!! 😍 
Fun Fact: I only needed 1 book more to finish my 2020 Goodreads Reading Challenge LOL, I think it’s funny because maybe I could have completed it, but I ended up reading 69 books in 2020 and that’s not bad at all!
 😂 

So, I don’t want to make this introduction infinite like I always end up doing lol, you know me, I love talking to you, so to summarize, I’m grateful for the beginning of this new year, for the little blessings of every day and especially for you and for giving me a place in your life.❤️ Also, super excited to bring you new content this year and much, much more books to recommend and to discuss about. Now, without further ado, I can’t wait to share my past and future readings with you, so LET’S START! ☀️

December TBR | Catching Up: Finishing Some Series & Exciting 2020 ARCs ☀️

☀️ Hi, my beautiful bookish friends! I hope you’re having the most incredible day with the best readings.❤️ Today I bring you a new Monthly TBR, where I’m sharing with you my reading plans for the month of December. I still don’t know how, but we have reached the last month of the year!! Isn’t that crazy? surely 2020 will be one of those years that we’ll never forget and not for the best reasons, but luckily it has passed super fast for me, I’m excited for the new year to come and I hope it’s full of blessings and good news to the world, I think we all deserve that. 🙏🏻
So here I am today to share with you my reading list for this last month of the year. When you’re reading this I’ll be on my break, so I don’t know how much I’ll be reading during this first week but that’s fine, this month will be a month of relaxation for me, so it’s okay if I don’t read too much, on the other hand, I’m SO excited to be able to share with you ALL the end of the year posts!! 😍
When I return from my break I’ll be sharing with you my best readings, my worst, and all those types of posts that I love to do every year.


My plan for this month is also to do a lot of blog hopping, I think I should give you back a little of all the support that you have given me, I feel super blessed to be part of this community, so I’ll try to support you all as much as I can, super excited for checking all your posts!! 🌟

So my reading plans are basically to finish catching up on some things, so in this way go into 2021 with a new vibe and eager to start new readings. First, I’ll be finishing some series, that’s really exciting for me, at last, I’ll be reading the final books of several series that I’m loving so far, and I’m dying to share that with you 🥰 & on the other hand, I still have a couple of ARCs that I want to read because they’re the last ARCs that I have left from this year’s releases and I would like to get into next year without any ARCs from 2020, you know? both books come out on December 1st, so I won’t get to read them for their release date but obviously, I’ll be reading and reviewing them during their release month, so I hope that’s enough, anyway super excited to tell you more about them! 😊 
Then, if I’m lucky enough to finish with my priorities,
I’ll be adding my Back-Up Pile with two books that I would like to be able to read before the year ends, it’s fine if I can’t, though, there’s no pressure, but it’s something that I also want to share with you today. 👏🏻 

So, super excited to share my December readings with you, I hope you have the best end of the year and above all that you and your family are safe and healthy.❤️ Now without further ado, I hope you decide to stay & let’s get started! ☀️

Book Series I Need To Finish Reading 🌪

 🌪 Hi guys, I hope you’re having a wonderful day, full of good readings. ❤️ Thanks for all the love, you’re incredible. Today I bring you a post that I’ve wanted to do for a while now and as you have seen as the title says, it’s a post where I’ll show you all the series that I’ve started to read but I have yet to finish. 😊
As the good bookworm that I am, I love to start new series, in fact, it’s super crazy, but before creating the blog I used to marathon the series that I read a lot more, in fact, I always enjoyed buying the complete series to be able to read it, I know it’s a risk, but I loved doing it. 😅 Nowadays, I’ve seen especially on Twitter some comments about how waiting for the book series to be complete to buy and read them can be detrimental to the author, and it makes a lot of sense, honestly, I had never thought about it, so from now on I’ll support buying the first book, and in this way, I can also see if I want to continue with that series or not. It’ll be less risky for me too, so it’s a good thing. 👏🏻 👏🏻 👏🏻
So, in short, I LOVE book series whether it be trilogies, duology, quartets, or more books, I really don’t care, if I enjoy the characters and the plot as such, so the more books the better!

So Lets Get To It Lets Do It GIF - SoLetsGetToIt LetsDoIt ComeOne -  Descubre & Comparte GIFs

So, in this post my goal is to be a little more organized about it, I know that this is something that most will feel related to, but it’s difficult to keep a track of each series that you start, and sometimes you just forget to continue with the rest of the books, even when you have loved the first book. So, today I’ll organize myself, and then start planning when I’ll finish these series. 🥰
An important fact before starting is that these series that I’ve chosen for today are series, duologies, or trilogies that are already finished, by this I mean that the last book has already been released. I’ll focus on them, and then at another time I can make another post of those series that I want to continue but the next book hasn’t yet come out & if you’re interested, I could also make a post about those series I’ll not be continuing for x reason.
 🤔

Now, without further ado, I hope you enjoy the post that maybe you can find a new series that interests you 💕, and as always let me know all your thoughts in the comments below, you know that I love chatting with you & LET’S START! 🌪

My Favorite Books of the Year so far | 2020 ⭐️

⭐️ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings and good vibes.❤️ 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!  😍 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. 👏🏻 
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. 🥰  I LOVE you, thanks for the support, always, and without further ado, let’s get started!⭐️Read More »

The Prediction Book Tag | 🔮

🍀 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day and even though the world is scary right now, I hope you can have a moment of peace and enjoy your readings. ❤️ I was already missing my relaxing Fridays’ book tags, so I decided to come back with one that’s simple but super fun at the same time, and I’m SO SO excited to do it and share this moment together! This is The Prediction Book Tag created by Book Princess Reviews (she created this tag on my birthday !! How cool is that, right? 🥰), an incredible blogger that I adore, so don’t hesitate to check her blog out & I’ve been tagged to do this tag by the wonderful Meghan | Meghan’s Whimsical Explorations & Reviews | I love her, she’s amazing and her blog it is as well, so check it out if you still don’t and show her lots of support and love, she deserves it! 😍 


Now before starting, I want to take the moment to thank you for your beautiful words about my new header 😭, I wanted to change a little and give a new look to the blog, nothing extravagant, but I’m very happy with it and I’m so glad that you liked 💞. Also now, I’ll be promoting myself a little for a minute lol, if you see to the right of the blog in my sidebar, you’ll see that I’ve added a new button to “Buy me a Coffee” in case you want to support me, my content and the blog, it would be of great help to continue growing and obviously always bring you the best content that I can. So yeah, I didn’t want to do a post talking about all of this because I don’t want you to feel overwhelmed or feel like I was being too much & I’m not the type of person who likes to ask for things, you know? so I think I’m fine with mentioning it this time & you know I always appreciate your support and all your love. THANK YOU! 😍 


Now, without further ado I’m very excited to share this AMAZING idea of a book tag with you, so let’s get started! 🍀 Read More »

March Wrap Up | Amazing Sequels, An Unexpected Disappointment & An Addictive Trilogy 🍂

🍂 Hi guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings.❤️ Today I bring you a new post… my March Wrap Up! where I’ll tell you ALL about my readings of the month. I always feel SO excited and with such beautiful energy sharing with you my reading month, I love writing these posts and I hope you like reading them too. Well, this was an incredible month for me in terms of reading, I read A LOT of books that I really loved, which doesn’t happen to me every month since I’m quite demanding with my ratings, but this month was really great for me, I feel super pleased with myself for everything I’ve read, so let’s celebrate together! YAY! 🎉 
Before continuing to tell you a little about my readings, you know that this month of March has been very intense in general, with the issue of Covid-19 that unfortunately has affected almost all the countries of the world, so obviously It’s a very stressful and difficult month in general for all of us. I tend to be very positive in my life and I really like being at home, so I can’t complain about being at home, but I’ve missed my family a lot and I still do because I can’t see them, so that has affected me a lot, on the other hand, I know that staying at home is the best, healthiest and safest right now. I LOVE you and I send you all my energy of absolute love wherever you are, I promise that everything will be fine very soon. 🥰


As always I can’t leave another month of this year without thanking you for your unconditional support with me and with my blog, you don’t know how much it means to me, your support, your likes, your comments, all that encourages me to improve every day to only bring you the best and also fills my soul and makes me extremely happy, so THANK YOU SO SO MUCH. 😍 On the other hand, OMG, I’ve had so many problems with WordPress, in general I like it very much, I’ve never had problems that I haven’t been able to solve, but this month has been hell, some of my posts were published but they never appeared in the reader, most of you didn’t see them, then I had some problems with the editor and it was all very stressful and frustrating. I hope that WordPress will soon solve this kind of thing, so we can create peace and with confidence. And despite these technical problems you’ve still supported me and I’ve been posting my content a bit on twitter and you have shown me a lot of support so thank you, my beautiful friends, seriously, I have no words, I’m just blessed to have you! ❤️ 😭 

Twitter Comments GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY


 

Well, leaving all those negative things aside for a while, I want to focus on the good of this month, so I’ll focus on my reading. I read all the books I had in my TBR, with the exception of one, so that’s super successful for me.  👏🏻 
I read a couple of sequels that I loved with all my heart, they met and even exceeded my expectations, so I have nothing but wonders to say about them. This month also, it was my first time participating in a blog tour and I had a lot of fun, I’m very grateful, it’s a great experience and I also ended up enjoying the book a lot, despite the fact that it’s a genre that I don’t read since a while ago. 😊 
On the other hand, I have a super disappointing reading for me, especially because I thought I would love that book, so I’m sad! I’ll tell you a little more about it later. #unpopularopinionALERT
And last but not least, I’m continuing with my personal challenge of reading YA well-known old trilogies/series, I’m having a lot of fun with this challenge and this time it has been super successful, I adored what I read so I’m super excited to talk to you more about it. 😍 

Now, let’s stop with this long introduction that I always love to do 😅 , and let’s jump directly to the important thing, I’m very happy to share another month with you, so without further ado, I hope you can find some interesting reading here & let’s begin! 🍂Read More »

Synopsis


Rowan has gone rogue, and has taken it upon himself to put the Scythedom through a trial by fire. Literally. In the year since Winter Conclave, he has gone off-grid, and has been striking out against corrupt scythes—not only in MidMerica, but across the entire continent. He is a dark folk hero now—“Scythe Lucifer”—a vigilante taking down corrupt scythes in flames.

Citra, now a junior scythe under Scythe Curie, sees the corruption and wants to help change it from the inside out, but is thwarted at every turn, and threatened by the “new order” scythes. Realizing she cannot do this alone—or even with the help of Scythe Curie and Faraday, she does the unthinkable, and risks being “deadish” so she can communicate with the Thunderhead—the only being on earth wise enough to solve the dire problems of a perfect world. But will it help solve those problems, or simply watch as perfection goes into decline?
