Book Recommendations | Perfect Books for Transitioning Between Seasons β›…️

⛅️ Hi, amores! I hope you’re having a beautiful day and an amazing start to the week, obviously, full of the most wonderful readings! ❀️ Today super excited to bring you a recommendation post after a long time of having made one, you know that I LOVE recommending books, but I like to give it a little twist making it more entertaining and fun, so this time I had the idea to recommend those books that under my point of view are perfect to read during those months of the year where the seasons are changing. πŸ™ŒπŸ» I hope you friends understand what I mean by this, but just in case, I’ll be more specific about my idea, the books that I’ll talk about next are, on the one hand, books that I’ve read and really loved, but they’re also perfect books to read while we’re moving from one season to another to adapt to a different climate and/or time of year.
I’ve also decided to add a couple more books per season, but this time books that belong to my TBR, cause although I haven’t read them yet I think they have themes, ideas, plot bases, or atmospheres similar to those respective books that I do have read, you know? especially to be able to bring you a greater number of titles that you can add to your TBR and enjoy! πŸ₯°
I love to make recommendations based on climates or seasons, but I don’t like to focus only on one season since we all live in different hemispheres, so I prefer to make a more general post, so we can all participate.
I hope you enjoy the post very much, that it’s an idea that you like & that above all, you can find new books to add to your TBR and read at some point. πŸ’« 
I LOVE you deeply, infinite thanks for always being there supporting me with each post, and without further ado, LET’S START! ⛅️

Favorite 2020 New-to-Me Authors πŸ–‹

 πŸ–‹ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having an incredible day full of good readings and beautiful moments! ❀️ 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. πŸ˜
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. πŸ₯Ί 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.  πŸ‘πŸ»
 πŸ‘πŸ» πŸ‘πŸ» 
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! πŸ”₯ 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. πŸ˜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!

I’m super happy to have shared the month of October with you and besides, being here to share everything about my readings, you know that I LOVE horror, so I had a really fun month, watching a lot of horror movies and reading some pretty creepy stuff, and, in general, I’m quite happy with what I’ve been able to do during the month. πŸ˜Š In my personal life, it has been my mother’s birthday, and being able to spend it with her despite everything that’s happening in the world has been a blessing, always keeping in mind how lucky I’m to have my family close and to be able to visit them more often, that has really brought me very nice energy to my month, I’ve also resumed my morning walks πŸ‘πŸ», now that everything is a little calmer the activities are being regulated better in my province, so I’ve had a little more freedom, always using a facemask, guys, super important, let’s take care of each other! So it has been a beautiful month, I’m also planning and working a little on my WIP, but I’ll start writing as such in November, like many of us I’ll be participating in Nanowrimo and super excited about it, because it will be my first time so we’ll see, maybe I’ll be sharing a bit of that with you next month. πŸ₯Ί πŸ₯Ί πŸ₯Ί

Now about my reading month, I think I would have liked to do better and maybe read one more book, but most of myself is like super happy with what I’ve achieved, during the previous month I’ve reached a much-needed harmony about how I manage my time and being kind to myself has been first, I’m very happy to have so many passions and reading, regardless of the number of books, it will always be one of them, so I’m truly happy for each book I read. πŸ₯°
I’ve participated in two readathons this month, one of them is
Hocus Pocus Readathon & the other is Gothtober Readathon, if you want to know more about them you can check my October TBR. I’ve had a lot of fun with both, I’ve combined several of my readings to make it easier for myself and I double up some challenges and promps, so I’ve done quite well in both. πŸ™ŒπŸ» I think the positive of any readathon is feeling motivated to read and feel that emotion, you know? so super accomplished! πŸ₯³ 
What I’m most excited about my readings this month is that everything I’ve read I’ve enjoyed, I didn’t have a single bad reading this month, which is INCREDIBLE πŸ˜, you know that I’m quite picky with the books I read, so it’s a pleasant surprise.
I had a couple of readings that surprised me a lot, giving me much more than I expected from them. I’ve had another couple of readings with very shocking, intense, and interesting stories & Others spooky but adorable with incredible characters.

So, sorry to make my introduction always so long, don’t hate me πŸ˜‚, & without further ado, let’s get started, I’m excited to share my readings with you! πŸŽƒ

Book Review | Rules for Vanishing by Kate Alice Marshall

TitleRules for Vanishing

By: Kate Alice Marshall

SeriesNO

Pages: 416

PublishedSeptember 24th, 2019

By: Viking Books for Young Readers

Genre: YA – Horror – Mystery/Thriller- Paranormal (LGBT+)

Buy it: Book Depository


In the faux-documentary style of The Blair Witch Project comes the campfire story of a missing girl, a vengeful ghost, and the girl who is determined to find her sister–at all costs.

Once a year, the path appears in the forest and Lucy Gallows beckons. Who is brave enough to find her–and who won’t make it out of the woods?

It’s been exactly one year since Sara’s sister, Becca, disappeared, and high school life has far from settled back to normal. With her sister gone, Sara doesn’t know whether her former friends no longer like her…or are scared of her, and the days of eating alone at lunch have started to blend together. When a mysterious text message invites Sara and her estranged friends to “play the game” and find local ghost legend Lucy Gallows, Sara is sure this is the only way to find Becca–before she’s lost forever. And even though she’s hardly spoken with them for a year, Sara finds herself deep in the darkness of the forest, her friends–and their cameras–following her down the path. Together, they will have to draw on all of their strengths to survive. The road is rarely forgiving, and no one will be the same on the other side.

October TBR | Trying to read all my spooky books: Hocus Pocus Readathon & Gothtober Readathon πŸŽƒ

πŸŽƒ Hi, my beautifull 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 October. Guys, I’m SO EXCITED cause the horror month has officially begun and it’s one of my favorite months of the year because if you don’t know it yet, you should know that I LOVE everything that has to do with scary things: movies, books, EVERYTHING. πŸ˜ So like every year I will be watching many spooky series and horror movies, as well as those that are within the genre like, mystery or suspense, and obviously, I’m here today to share with you ALL my readings, of course, that are super spooky and disturbing, so really really excited and happy that this season begins. πŸ‘» Here in Argentina, there’s no such thing as Halloween, so I’ll be celebrating it on my own, like every year!!! and I hope you stay there all this month accompanying me, I’ve planned some spooky recommendations and other posts that I’m really excited about to share with you, so stay tuned, it will be a beautiful and creepy month! πŸ₯³ 
As always before I start to tell you a bit about my plans for the month, I want to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all the support and love you have given me the previous month, I’m SOOOO happy to have you in my life, you have no idea, this blog means the world for me, as well as being part of this community that’s so wonderful. πŸ’ž  I LOVE YOU, ALWAYS & ALWAYS.
 πŸ₯Ί πŸ₯Ί πŸ₯Ί 


So, I plan this month to participate in two readathons, I really couldn’t choose only one and LOVE the ideas of both, the creators have been super original and you can see both have worked so hard, so I want to give my support by participating, it will be SO MUCH FUN. πŸ‘πŸ»
The first will be
Hocus Pocus Readathon πŸ§™πŸ»β€β™€οΈ, a Readathon that I’m sure you’ve heard mentioned, is created by @pagesnink and @werewolflious & takes place from October 1st until the 31st. I LOVE that in this Readathon we have Teams: “Team Sanderson Sisters”, “Team Undead” & “Team Trick or Treaters”. Each Team has its own prompts, as well as each Team also has a Strength and a Weakness, all of which is perfectly detailed on Twitter, where you’ll find a thread with all the information you need to know, also where you can join to win points for your team. In my case, I’ll be #TEAMSANDERSONSISTERS and super excited for my team, and I have a very exciting stack to share with you later.
On the other hand, we have
Gothtober Readathon πŸ’€, which let me tell you, it has some BEAUTIFUL graphics, you can see the work put into it and I simply love each of the promps that I’ll later be sharing with you. This Gothic Readathon is hosted by @ladette_M, @Oliviascatastro, and @llittlewolf_ & will be taking place throughout the whole month of October as well. This also has a wonderful thread on Twitter where you can go to see all the info and also some recommendations for each prompt, which I’ll share with you below.

I’ve been able to put together a stack with books that I’ll be convincing and repeating for many of the prompts of both Readathons, so I don’t have to read one for each prompt because it would be impossible for me to do so. But I’m really happy with what I accomplished, I have a decent stack of spooky books that I’m very excited to read.  πŸ₯° To be honest with you I’ll not be prioritizing my ARCs this month, I want to mention it directly because I have to be true to myself and this month I feel like I want to read other things, and that’s fine, even so, I always enjoy my ARCs and love the possibility of being able to be approved for each one of them, so I’ll read more in November. πŸ˜Š
And I think that’s it, hope I don’t forget to mention anything, I’m super excited about jumping right into what’s important right and sharing ALL my readings for this month with you, so without further ado, make yourself comfortable, prepare a delicious coffee &
LET’S START! πŸŽƒ

Top 10 | Possible Spooky TBR… Isn’t it Halloween already? πŸŒ’

πŸŒ’ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day, surrounded by AMAZING readings.❀️ Today I’m more than excited because as you’ll see from the title I’ll be sharing with you the most spooky books of my TBR, that could become possible readings for Halloween season in October! I know you’re probably thinking “Sofi, it’s August, are you okay?” lol and YES, I KNOW! πŸ˜… But I couldn’t stop thinking about how much I want to read that kind of spooky, creepy, atmospherically engaging plotline. So I thought, even though it’s August and October is still a little while away, it would be fun to gather my possible readings for Halloween and, by the way, know your opinions on each book on my list and thus be able to create a scary stack to read in the future. πŸ˜  Also, of course, I’d love to hear your spooky recommendations for me, as I’m ready to add them all to my TBR.

When I have in mind reading something spooky in general I think of a spooky atmosphere that keeps you on the edge of the seat wanting to know what will happen, I also love anything that has to do with witches, it’s my jam & of course, weird and dark plots. So you’ll find a bit of all of that on my list today.  πŸ˜Š 

I hope you like the idea, that you can enjoy the post, and that you especially find new readings for your own TBR! πŸ™ŒπŸ» You know that I would love to know everything you think in the comments, it will be a lot of fun, so let’s START! πŸŒ’ Read More »

Top 5 | Books Featuring Amazing Sibling Relationships πŸ‘―‍♀️

🌟 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day, I hope you’re staying in your home safe, I LOVE you and I send you all my positive energy from here.❀️ Today I bring you a post that I’ve wanted to do for a while, but lately, I’ve read a book that has inspired me, so I thought it was time to do it. Maybe you already know this because I repeat it in each review of each book lol, but basically, I’m a HUGE fan of brotherhood/sisterhood dynamics in books, in fact, many times I enjoy much more to see this type of relationship and their evolution, as also of the family in general, than the romantic one. 😍 So I thought it would be a fun idea to bring you a kind of “recommendation post” but also a top 5, with my favorite siblings relationships in books, but also I’ll give you a small bonus where I’ll share with you another top 5 of books featuring and having siblings relationships that are on my TBR, so you can have more options.Β πŸ‘πŸ»Β 
Most of the books that I’ll share with you don’t have the siblings bond as the central point of the plot, but as a strong and important complement that makes the plot move or there’s also a lot of support between these brothers. On the other hand, I also want to mention that this time I try to choose healthy relationships that grow and become solid, powerful and full of love and support. Maybe another day, if you like this concept, I could make a top 5, on the contrary, showing you this type of books, but about darker and twisted sibling relationships, I also have a couple of those that I’ve read and they’re very shocked and good too.Β πŸ€”Β But well, we’ll start here and I’m super excited to share with you since also many of these books are my favorites of all times, so I hope you decide to give them a chance and let me know in the comments everything you think about it, both about the idea and also what you think about sibling relationships in books, I would love to know! πŸ₯°Β Now, without further ado, let’s start! 🌟 Read More »
