Top 5 | My Most Anticipated Books of 2021 🌿

 🌿 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day with the best readings and peaceful moments.❤️ Today I’ve come back to share with you my most anticipated books of the year, you know that every year I really enjoy creating these lists where I show you the new releases that I’m most excited about and this year will not be the exception. 😍 I’ve decided to focus on my top 5 because I hope and challenge myself to read them all by the end of the year, for this reason, I think the best idea is to keep the list short and easily achievable. 🤓 I also think that it will help me control my impulses to buy books lol, and so I know that these five books are really the ones I want to buy once they came out, to read and share my experience with you.
As I always say, I’m very excited to share these little tops with you, I think that sometimes my literary tastes are kind of different, or at least I feel that books with strange themes or plots always catch my attention, so I hope that in these mini-lists you can find new books you haven’t heard of yet to add to your own TBR. 👏🏻
 👏🏻 👏🏻 
I LOVE you, thanks for the support and beautiful comments 🥺, I’m taking advantage of my free day today to write this post and I love every second, really not having so much time to write makes me value it much more, so without further ado, I hope you enjoy it, make yourself comfortable, & GET STARTED! 🌿

Top 5 | Wonderful Descriptive Books 🌲

 🌲 Hi guys, I hope you’re having a wonderful day, full of good readings.❤️ Today I’m super excited to come back with a top 5/recommendation post, this time all about books with beautiful descriptions👏🏻 
Lately, I’ve been working a lot on my WIP because I’m participating in NaNoWriMo, and because of this I’ve realized my weaknesses at the time of writing, and I think that my biggest weak point and where I really need to focus is on the descriptive scenes. 🥺 So thinking about this a lot has inspired me to create the list of books that I bring you today, and not only I adore all the books that I’ll mention below, but I also want to make this post as a kind of recognition to all these incredible authors for their wonderful work in creating the most beautiful descriptive scenes that make each chapter atmospheric and even almost poetic. 😍 
As I’ve mentioned in a few posts in the past, I’m not the biggest fan of over-descriptive plots that can spend hundreds of pages talking about weather and tree shapes, but
I do appreciate it a lot when I find the right amount of descriptions about the surroundings or even about the characters because it gives depth to the plot and they can make us feel almost like we are there within the story experiencing everything alongside with the characters. 😊
It’s a great tool to bring stories to life, so today I’m going to share with you my 5 favorite books with these characteristics.
I hope you enjoy it a lot, that this is something of your interest, and above all, that you can find new titles to add to your TBR, which always makes me very happy & now, without further ado, let’s get started!

Top 5 | Books with Morally-Gray Main Characters 🔥

 🔥 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful day & a great start to the week, as I always tell you, I hope you’re also enjoying all your readings.❤️ Today I’m super excited to return with another top 5 that could also be a recommendation post because I love each one of these books with all my heart, so obviously, I highly recommend them, especially if, as the title says, you enjoy the morally-gray main characters. 👏🏻 What do I mean by this? Well, I know that we all have different concepts about what a “morally-gray” character is, for me, this means having a character who’s capable of doing anything to achieve his goals, characters that have dark actions or do something immoral during his journey or can also refer, in my personal opinion, to those characters that change as time passes and become vengeful and power-hungry. Today I’ve brought all those types of characters in these incredible 5 books, this time I wanted to focus on the main characters as such because I’ve read other books with these types of characters but they have secondary roles or the “villains” role as such, you know? so I wanted to put them aside to bring you this type of character as the main focus of the plot. 😊 

I hope this type of recommendation is for you and is something that you can enjoy, you know that I always try to bring you very varied recommendations & tops, so that no matter what your jam is you can find something for you, so if this time this is not something you interested in, that’s ok and I respect it, soon I bring another with brave characters and more of the heroes type, which I also personally love. 🥰 

I love you ALWAYS, thank you for the love and support you gave me and above all for your kind words about the new look of the blog 💞, with which I’m super happy, you can see that I’ve changed the fonts because it seemed to me that was too small before and it was very difficult to read, so I hope now it feels more comfortable for you. 🥺
I hope you enjoy it a lot, go get yourself something to drink and eat, make yourself comfortable, and enjoy the top 5LET’S START!

The Longest Books in my Physical TBR 📔

📔 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most beautiful day EVER & above all, that you’re enjoying your readings right now, which you always know I would love to know about in the comments.❤️ Today I’ve decided to come with a kind of different top 5, lately, I’ve been focusing on organizing the books that I already own in my physical and electronic TBR, therefore I’ve realized that I have several books in my physical TBR that are actually books with SO MANY pages, they’re really very large, they could easily be deadly weapons lol & although it seems crazy… they’re books that I really want to read 👏🏻 , but I’ve been putting them aside because they’re huge, and that intimidates me a bit. Now that I’m trying to be a more “organized” person or at least organized in the Sofi way, you know? I thought that it would be a good time to organize myself and share the process with you, cause you know I LOVE making lists to talk about with you. 😍

My goal is to share with you these huge but beautiful books I own, to know what you think about them since that helps me a lot and finally put them aside to prioritize them at some point, I’m thinking of putting together a floating shelf maybe, to put them all there and maybe I should at least read 2 or 3 of these beasts a year and I would feel better about myself! 😊
So I hope you like this idea, that maybe inspires you to organize your own shelves a bit as well, cause sometimes we must prioritize our babies with more pages and give them the attention they deserve. I know, my loves, they’re very intimidating, but we can do it! 🙌🏻
As always, I can’t start without first thanking you for the kind support you give me with each post & for the love I feel every day being part of this beautiful community, thank you from my heart 🥺 & now, without further ado, let’s get started! 📔

Top 5 | Books Featuring Amazing Sibling Relationships 👯‍♀️

🌟 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. 👏🏻 
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. 🤔 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! 🥰 Now, without further ado, let’s start! 🌟 Read More »
