November Wrap Up | A Challenging Month: NaNoWriMo & Catching up with ARCs 🌻

 🌻 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day full of good readings.❤️Today I bring you a new post… my November Wrap Up! where I’ll tell you ALL about my readings of the month. This month was a challenge for me, I think it’s the first time that I put myself to the test in this way so demandingly. I can say that I’m proud of myself for having been able to do SO much during this month, on the other hand, I’m exhausted so it would be good for me to relax a little during the next month, I deserve it. 🥺 🥺 
Well, to keep you updated on what I’ve been doing in the month of November, to begin with, I’ve been participating in
NaNoWriMo for the first time, and it has been an absolutely enriching experience of learning and growth for me as a writer, which I appreciate very much. 😊 I’m more than happy to have participated, but I did realize how demanding it could be, so that’s why I made the decision to abandon it after the third week, I told you a little about it in my NaNo update, but in summary, I felt that I was being too much for me, I felt mentally and physically exhausted and I didn’t want to write anything just to reach a “goal”, you know? so I made that decision and although it was difficult at the same time I know that it was the best for me and today I’m happy with what I’ve accomplished. I wrote 30k words and that’s just INCREDIBLE for me, so I haven’t regret, contrarily, I celebrate that great achievement. 🥳 

Besides having been writing a lot and having focused 100% on my WIP also magically and I still don’t know how, I’ve been able to read ALL, yes, you read correctly, ALL the ARCs that I planned to read this month 🤩, I can’t believe I do it, but I’ve had the incredible luck to have quite short books and also super easy to read, I enjoyed them a lot so I’m really happy to have been able to read a lot this month too, which was not my main goal, but… YAY! 👏🏻 
I’ve read a lot of high-impact fantasy, a bit of sci-fi & a long-awaited mystery book that paid off. So, super happy and excited to come with good news and been able to recommend several books.
 🥰 


Before starting I want to share with you that I’ll be taking this week off, if you’ve followed me for a while you know that every year I take a week of mini-vacations to take care of myself and visit my family, and that kind of thing, so I’ll be gone since December 1st and I’ll return on Monday 7th and the second week of December will be normal as usual. 💕 I usually take weeks off in November but this time I decided to change things up a bit. I think it would be healthy for me to get away a little and I‘ll return with a lot of energy as usual to bring you the best of me. 💫
I also wanted to mention that I know that I haven’t been checking other blogs and I’m also super late with the comments, so I’m very sorry, really the month of November has been crazy for me 😭,
I’ve been extremely busy and I haven’t been able to do my beloved blog hopping, but I hope to change that soon and will be checking your beautiful and wonderful blogs as always. 😍 😍 😍 
You know that I’m still here for you always, love you, I’m deeply grateful for all the love and the nice comments, THANK YOU SO MUCH! 💕 So, I’ll be back soon, when you’re reading this I’m probably already on my break, but I still wanted to mention it.
You’ll have posts anyway all the week, so you won’t feel my absence, but I’ll probably be answering comments when I get back and doing a massive blog hopping of thanks.

Milly, Aubrey, and Jonah Story are cousins, but they barely know each another, and they’ve never even met their grandmother. Rich and reclusive, she disinherited their parents before they were born. So when they each receive a letter inviting them to work at her island resort for the summer, they’re surprised . . . and curious.

Their parents are all clear on one point–not going is not an option. This could be the opportunity to get back into Grandmother’s good graces. But when the cousins arrive on the island, it’s immediately clear that she has different plans for them. And the longer they stay, the more they realize how mysterious–and dark–their family’s past is.

The entire Story family has secrets. Whatever pulled them apart years ago isn’t over–and this summer, the cousins will learn everything.

November TBR | Catching up on ARCs, Re-reading some faves & Participating in NaNoWriMo for the first time! 🌻

 🌻 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 November. I can already tell you and surely you yourself will have realized it: this month is an ambitious month, where I’ll be doing many different things, so OMG, it will be a busy month, but I feel super prepared to give my best in each of my activities, so whatever the end result is, I’ll be super proud of myself & I’m already super excited to share everything with you. 🥰
First, I want to tell you that
in the month of November the blog is turning 4 years old 🎊, more precisely on November 14, so of course, I’ll be doing something very special that will include a post to share with you celebrating this moment & a Giveaway on Twitter 🌟, so please if you still don’t follow me there, do it, I don’t want anyone to miss the opportunity to participate, but actuality, all this is a simple gesture of love towards you and a way of saying THANK YOU to the support you gave me throughout the years, I’m so grateful for you. 🥺 🥺 🥺


As the title says, I’ll be part of NaNoWriMo for the first time ever this year and I feel super excited about it, I think it will be fun, and I hope it will help me and be an incentive to develop my WIP as much as possible. 👏🏻 What I’m most excited about being part of this event, is being able to share a little of what I write with the world and with you especially, and being able to feel inspired by all the projects that others will be writing, I’m also excited to be able to meet other ideas and share and give them my support, I think it’s a very good time to work on my ideas and finally be able to move forward and give them a better shape. 🌲
Of course, I plan to share the process with you, for that every Sunday of the month I’ll have an update on my writing here on the blog and obviously, if you’re interested, I’ll share a little about what I’m writing, what it’s about, and all that, there are simply many things I would love to discuss with you. 😍
Besides all this, I feel that sharing a little of my project with you could be a lot of learning for me, knowing your thoughts will be fun and I hope that all this experience will help me improve my writing and have new ideas,
I’m open to all kinds of respectful criticizing, I want to grow and learn, so I’m ready! I hope you’re interested in sharing this month of writing with me every Sunday & of course, I can’t wait to find out what you’re working on if you’ll participate as well. 🥳

My reading month will be super focused on reading all the ARCs I haven’t read yet, above all, I want to prioritize those that will be released or have already been released during 2020 & And I’ll also be participating in a Blog Tour this month, of which I must say, I’m beyond excited! 🙌🏻 so that will be all my focus on the reading area lol, if I get to read them all then, something that makes me very excited is to start re-reading one of my favorite fantasy series because there’s very little left for the release of the next book in the series. So although this is not really my priority as such in the month, it’s something I want to add just in case, if I can’t with that, though, it’s fine, I don’t feel any kind of pressure, is something I just would like to do. 😊 

So my loves, this is all I have for you today, this will be a month with many things, I want you to know that I’ll be very focused on my writing which is fine for me, but still, I will continue to update in the blog as always, only that I probably have to get some posts scheduled, you’ll still have a lot of content. I adore you, I hope you have the best month & I hope you enjoy this TBR, let me know everything you will be reading or doing this month in the comments 😍, and without further ado, let’s get started! 🌻

Spooky Books #3 | Mystery & Thriller Books 🔍

 🔍 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful and spooky day, enjoying all your readings.❤️ Today I’m back with the third part of my series of posts where I’ll be sharing with you some lists and recommendations of spooky books so that you can add to your TBR and maybe read at some point! 😍 I’m SO excited to share the horror season with you, you know that I LOVE everything that has to do with spooky stuffs, so it’s a pleasure for me to be putting together these lists full of interesting books for you.

This time I’ve decided to bring you a list of 10 books within the mystery & thriller genre, so you can also enjoy this month, 5 of them I’ve read and loved, and the other 5 are in my TBR. 😊 I’ve decided to make this list to include in this series of posts because many of you have commented to me that you’re not very interested in horror as such, or it’s simply not the genre that resonates with you the most, and I respect that completely, so my mission is to bring a more varied list of books so that more of you can enjoy this season with me and can find something that genuinely catches your attention.❤️
In this list, I’ve focused on books that I love and other books that do seem or sound just as compelling as the books that I’ve loved, so that I can trust a little more in recommending those books that I haven’t read as well, and expand our lists! 👏🏻 This is one of my favorite genres so I’m super excited about sharing all these amazing books with you.

I hope it’s something you enjoy, thank you SO much for your support with this mini-series for October, I love you, you’re incredible, I hope you’re having an incredible spooky month 🥰 & without further ado, let’s get started! 🔍
