November Wrap Up & December Plans | Incredible ARCs, but less Reading than I Anticipated + Some of my Plans for the last Month of 2021! ☀️

☀️ Hello, bookish friends! I hope you’re having a day full of blessings and the best reads! ❤️ Today, as always at this time of the month, I bring you one of my favorite posts to share with you: my monthly Wrap Up & TBR! where, of course, I share with you my past readings and future plans, as we catch up a bit.😊✨ November has been a crazy month in terms of my personal life, I’ve had ups and downs, and although you know that this isn’t a place where I usually share the negatives of my life, I feel I should mention that one of those situations has been that my parents split up (in fact, I mean my stepdad and my mom, but it’s the same thing for me), so even though I already have a life outside my parents’ house, this has affected the family structure, and clearly has had me very distracted from all my reading and the blogosphere in general. I’ve spent most of my time accompanying my younger siblings and being a support for them, so that’s where my focus has been and probably will be for at least the duration of this year. I also have a new job and that has been taking quite a bit out of me, so overall, I haven’t done very well with my reading. Still, I always like to convey how important it’s to take care of yourself and take your time, so I’ll preach what I say and be super supportive of myself. I’ve read what I can and that’s enough. 🙌🏻 Now, things are slowly taking shape and everything will come back together in time, so I know that even though my life is all over the place right now it will all be for the better. I want to thank you so much for how understanding you always are and also thank you for all the beautiful comments you take the time to write on each post, it means so much to me, every interaction with you makes my days. 🥺 🥺 🥺 

Of course, I’ll still be sharing what I’ve read, because even though I’ve only read three books they have all been great, so that makes me very happy. 😍 I have a series of books that even though it’s still in the process of being created, I must recommend to you because so far it’s one of those hidden gems, another one of those readings is a mystery ARC by a super popular author that never disappoints & lastly, I also have an unexpected read, that clearly wasn’t in my plans but I’m happy to have given it a chance because I found what I was looking for, something light, romantic and very inspiring. 💞

Friends, one more clarification before we begin. This month I’ll not be doing a TBR for December for obvious reasons, I really don’t want to put pressure on myself to read, so I’ll just be reading what I feel like at the moment and then we can do some reading updates during December to catch up on what I’ve been doing. Sorry, I know it’s not the usual, I really love watching TBRs, so I understand if it’s a bit disappointing, but I still hope to come across some amazing books to enjoy. If you want a little hint of what I might be reading, I invite you to check out my last month’s TBR, as there I included several books that are still my priority. 🥰 
I hope you’re ready and comfortable for today’s post 🍿,
enjoy it very much and as always, don’t hesitate to share your thoughts in the comments! Now, without further ado, let’s GET STARTED! ☀️

An empty crown. A perilous journey.
Will she answer when darkness calls?

Against all odds, Roh survived the harrowing Queen’s Tournament, but now something far deadlier awaits her: a formidable quest for the three magic birthstones of Saddoriel.

The gems have been scattered across the realms – and only when Roh retrieves them can she take her place as queen. But surrounded by hostile companions and tormented by the dangerous secret she carries, Roh begins to realise that the pursuit of power may prove more destructive than she ever imagined.

Nothing can prepare her for the nightmares that fester in the shadows of Akoris, a fanatical cyren territory, or the twisted games of its cunning leader…

Can Roh win the first birthstone without sacrificing everything she holds dear – and without losing herself?

Packed with heart-pounding action and layers of intrigue, With Dagger and Song is the second epic instalment in Helen Scheuerer’s Curse of the Cyren Queen quartet.
