Favorite 2020 New-to-Me Authors 🖋

 🖋 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. 😍
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. 🥺 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.  👏🏻
 👏🏻 👏🏻 
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! 🔥 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. 😊
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!

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! 🌻

An #ownvoices contemporary YA set in Argentina, about a rising soccer star who must put everything on the line—even her blooming love story—to follow her dreams.

In Rosario, Argentina, Camila Hassan lives a double life.

At home, she is a careful daughter, living within her mother’s narrow expectations, in her rising-soccer-star brother’s shadow, and under the abusive rule of her short-tempered father.

On the field, she is La Furia, a powerhouse of skill and talent. When her team qualifies for the South American tournament, Camila gets the chance to see just how far those talents can take her. In her wildest dreams, she’d get an athletic scholarship to a North American university.

But the path ahead isn’t easy. Her parents don’t know about her passion. They wouldn’t allow a girl to play fútbol—and she needs their permission to go any farther. And the boy she once loved is back in town. Since he left, Diego has become an international star, playing in Italy for the renowned team Juventus. Camila doesn’t have time to be distracted by her feelings for him. Things aren’t the same as when he left: she has her own passions and ambitions now, and La Furia cannot be denied. As her life becomes more complicated, Camila is forced to face her secrets and make her way in a world with no place for the dreams and ambition of a girl like her.

I hope you’re having an amazing day.❤️ Today as the title says I come to share with you some ARCs that I’ve been so fortunate to receive recently. I don’t usually do this type of posts so often because I never have an appropriate amount of ARCs to show you at the same time, so now that I have put together a small stack to show you, here I am, and I hope you enjoy it.
