Spooky Season Post #1 | 31 Young Adult Horror Books to Keep You Up at Night 🕯️

🕯️ Hi, bookish friends! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day full of the best spooky reading! 🖤 Today I’m super excited to share with you the first post of a new series where we’ll have various bookish content all related to horror season, and Halloween in general 🕷, but don’t worry because if you’re not that into spooky and this crrepy vibe isn’t for you because I’ve got you covered too, so I’ll be trying to create posts that can be enjoyable for everyone, no matter what. 🙌🏻 I hope you’re as much excited as I am, because as you know, I LOVE horror season 😍, even though in Argentina it’s not something we celebrate, I celebrate it on my own with many creepy books, movies and series, so I hope this year I can share this season with all of you. So, I invite you to stick around for this post series to not only share halloween-y books, but also exchange opinions to make it more fun! 😊 

In this first post to open this series I wanted to bring you a bunch of Young Adult Horror books for you to enjoy during this season, so I thought a list of 31 books would be more than perfect! 🎃 Some things I tried to keep in mind when compiling this list are: first, that 🌕 this books aren’t this year’s releases, as I’ll have a separate post for that specifically, and second, that 🌕 the specific genre is “horror” and not “suspense”, “thrillers” or “mysteries”. Obviously there’s nothing wrong with those genres, I love them and they’re perfect to read during this time due to their dark atmospheres, but I wanted in this list to focus 100% on horror as the main genre. 👍🏻 if you’re interested in seeing a list with the other genres as well, I’ll be more than happy to do it separately without any problems. 🥰 

I don’t want to make this introduction too long, as we have a long way to go, so without further ado, I hope you enjoy this October content in general in the blog 🕸, that you like this post, that you can find new titles to add to your TBR & obviously, I invite you to share all your thoughts about these books with me in the comments. 😘 Now yes, LET’S GET STARTED! 🕯 

‼️ All books will have a direct link to Goodreads in case you want to add them.

2020 Surprises & Disappointments ⚡️

⚡️ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings and wonderful moments! ❤️ Today I’m more than excited to share with you this second post in the series of “end of the year posts” and this time I bring you my Surprises & my Disappointments of this 2020. 🙌🏻 On the one hand, we have those books from which I didn’t expect so much and they ended up surprising me by how much I enjoyed them and on the other hand, those which I had high expectations from, but ended up disappointing me.
As always, I want to clarify that these opinions are only my own and don’t mean that we all have the same experiences with these books and that’s fine 😊 & on the other hand I also want to clarify that
the group of books that today I want to share with you that were surprising for me, are books that really captivated me but they didn’t reach my top of the year as favorites, so this is also a good opportunity to give them their moment of recognition, appreciate them and tell you a little about them. 😍
I also want to tell you that those books that are in the group of
my disappointments this year aren’t bad books at all, in fact, I’ve enjoyed them, it just that I get into them with high expectations or I expected much more from them and they just didn’t live up to and that’s why they’re in my disappointments. Which doesn’t mean they aren’t great reads anyway. 🌟 
In short, I want this to be a fun post to share and exchange opinions, always knowing that we are all unique and different and that’s wonderful. 💞
So you know that I hope to know everything you think in the comments about these books!

I hope you enjoy the posts a lot, so get yourself something delicious to drink and eat ☕️, make yourself comfortable & let’s get started, I’m excited!

September Wrap Up | Latinx Book Bingo, Unexpected Reads & Unpopular Opinions 🌻

 🌻 Hi guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings.❤️ Today I bring you a new post… my September Wrap Up! where I’ll tell you ALL about my readings of the month. I’m quite pleased with my reading month, I think I could read a lot of what I expected and that makes me very happy, but also I’ve felt very relaxed in terms of my life as a reader, you know? I think I’ve learned to balance a bit my “normal life” with my “life as a reader” without stressing so much about it and that has been something very positive this month. 🥰 I found myself enjoying most of my readings as well, and with that extra non-pressure feeling that I’ve been having, it was even a more enjoyable experience that I hope to take with me into October, which will be a pretty ambitious month for me. 🎃 Still, I want to continue to feel relaxed and read just when I feel like it, and know that it’s okay if I read 4, 5, or 6 books a month, that that’s wonderful and I don’t have to push myself to read more. So in summary, I think I have had a month quite in tune and in harmony with myself, accepting myself with all and failures, knowing that it’s okay if I want to do things that don’t have to do with reading, and basically be at peace with the blogging process as well 😊. I think that if it’s something that interests you, I could talk more in another post about the balance between daily life, blogging, and reading, I think it’s something interesting to discuss.


As I always do, I want to thank you immensely for the support and love you have towards me and towards the blog, I love you deeply, you know that and I know how lucky I’m to have each one of you commenting and liking my posts, I always feel all that lovely energy and it makes me SO happy. I want to say thank you again, for having voted for me in this 2020 Book Blogging Awards, because I’ve won for Best Recommendations 🎊 and I still cannot believe it, it’s such a great honor, YOU’RE INCREDIBLE & thank you SO SO much! ❤️❤️❤️  
In other news, but not least, I’ve changed many things on the blog, as you can see, and
I want to thank you for your words of support and love towards those changes 🥺, I know that I’m not a graphic designer and there’s much that I still have to learn, but I’m happy with the changes, I’m about to celebrate 4 years with the blog and I already felt like changing a little to attract new energy of love and creation. I’m very excited about this new stage and I hope that you’re there to live it together.

i love you so much GIFs - Primo GIF - Latest Animated GIFs

So, going a little more specifically to my readings this month, it has been a very positive month.
I’ve participated in the Latinx Book Bingo, but I decide to do it something different and just focus on a stack of books all by Latinx authors and try to read as much as possible, obviously, it was too much and I knew that, so I didn’t get to read the vast majority, BUT I’m still happy because
almost all my readings of the month were by Latinx authors so YAY! 😍
I‘ve even participated in a couple of blog tours that I’m very proud of because I’ve adored both Latinx authors releases, both super important readings, I’ll tell you more later. 😊
I was also looking forward to catching up on a well-known trilogy of which I had an ARC from the second book, and
I have unpopular thoughts about it 🙄, so you should stick around to find out, but yeah, I was just hoping for a little more from them.
Then I encouraged myself to read a bit of contemporary and especially romance, which isn’t my genre at all, but I’m glad to be giving it another chance. Spring started where I live, so I thought it would be a good time to get out of my comfort zone.
And I also read a book with a lot of hype, and you know that always terrifies me, but I think this time it was worth it,
I loved it and it has that horror/gothic touch that I had not read for a long time. 👏🏻 👏🏻 👏🏻

So, as you can see, I have a lot that I want to talk to you about, so without further ado, make yourself comfortable, I hope you enjoy & let’s get started! 🌻

Book Review | Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

TitleMexican Gothic

By: Silvia Moreno-Garcia

SeriesNO

Pages: 301

PublishedJune 30th, 2020

By: Del Rey

Genre: Adult – Gothic Horror – Historcal Fiction – Mystery

An isolated mansion. A chillingly charismatic aristocrat. And a brave socialite drawn to expose their treacherous secrets. . . .

From the author of Gods of Jade and Shadow comes a novel set in glamorous 1950s Mexico.

After receiving a frantic letter from her newlywed cousin begging for someone to save her from a mysterious doom, Noemí Taboada heads to High Place, a distant house in the Mexican countryside. She’s not sure what she will find – her cousin’s husband, a handsome Englishman, is a stranger, and Noemí knows little about the region.

Noemí is also an unlikely rescuer: She’s a glamorous debutante, and her chic gowns and perfect red lipstick are more suited for cocktail parties than amateur sleuthing. But she’s also tough and smart, with an indomitable will, and she is not afraid: not of her cousin’s new husband, who is both menacing and alluring; not of his father, the ancient patriarch who seems to be fascinated by Noemí; and not even of the house itself, which begins to invade Noemi’s dreams with visions of blood and doom.

Her only ally in this inhospitable abode is the family’s youngest son. Shy and gentle, he seems to want to help Noemí but might also be hiding dark knowledge of his family’s past. For there are many secrets behind the walls of High Place. The family’s once colossal wealth and faded mining empire kept them from prying eyes, but as Noemí digs deeper she unearths stories of violence and madness.

And Noemí, mesmerized by the terrifying yet seductive world of High Place, may soon find it impossible to ever leave this enigmatic house behind.
