Colorful Bookish Sundays | Prioritizing Books from my TBR 🍇

 ☀️ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day, full of good readings & amazing moments. ❤️ Super excited for today’s post, this is a new series of super chill posts that I’ll be bringing you every Sunday! 🥳  These will be our “Colorful Bookish Sundays” and it will be, basically, to organize my priority list, choosing some books from my Goodreads TBR to add to my list which I’ll check every month when creating my monthly TBRs, that way I hope to start reading those books that I’m most excited about, so they don’t end up in my TBR for years as many of them are already doing 😅 
You may not know this, but I have a mini book list that I go to when I build my TBR every month, but it’s super outdated and I’ve been wanting to renew it for a while now, so I thought it would be a fun and different idea to do it, and also share with you the process and know your thoughts, which always helps me a lot to make decisions.

I’m looking to give to this post series a fun and relaxed look, so I decided to show you a specific color every Sunday, I LOVE some good beautiful covers and even more when there’s a beautiful color palette in them, so I think it could be interesting organize them by color, chat a little about them, and as always try to organize myself better with my books and my future readings 😍 & you can know what color we’ll play every Sunday based on the icon that will accompany the title, but I’ll also let you know below.

The dynamic will be to show you the selected books and then separate them by categories to finally make a decision of which one/ones will be my choice to add to my list of priorities and obviously, I would love to know what you think about them! 👏🏻 👏🏻 👏🏻           

I’m SO happy to bring you posts on Sundays again, it seems like a fun idea and hopefully, it will be entertaining for both you and me. 🥺 I hope you like it, I know it sounds weird now and you’re probably thinking “Sofi, what are you doing?” 😂 but I promise I’ll do my best. I LOVE YOU ❤️, thanks for the constant support, it means a lot to me, so now get comfortable, prepare your favorite drink and let’s start! ☀️

2020 Book Releases by Black Authors & Resources to Help and Support ⚡️

⚡️ Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day and you’re enjoying your readings.❤️ Today I’ve decided to bring you an extensive list with many 2020 releases of books written by black authors. As a blogger I think it’s my responsibility to use my platform to support and raise the voices of those who need it most right now, I’ve already done this in my wrap up & my social media, but I felt that I could give more and do more, so as my blog is about books, I’ve been collecting many incredible releases that you can enjoy and add to your TBR to somehow put a little of us at this difficult time supporting 100% black authors with their literary projects. I’ve seen that many fellow book bloggers have been doing this and also other types of posts talking about the #BlackLivesMatter movement and I think it’s wonderful, don’t think that because you have little reach or few followers, you’re not helping, on the contrary, it’s our duty as citizens and even more In our places of privilege to raise our voices right now, it’s not time to stay silent, so I invite you to also spread the word and give power to the movement by sharing links on all your social networks, signing petitions, making donations, or as you can, we can all help at this time so please do so. This is a social problem of racism, not a political thing as I’ve been hearing so it’s our duty to really raise the voices of the black community right now. There are no excuses.⚡️ Read More »

TBR Lows & Highs #1 🌙

  🌙  Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a wonderful day full of good readings. Super excited cause I decided to start with this new weekly series, which will be focused on helping me clean my Goodreads shelves and also prioritize some readings and organize myself in general. I LOVE this idea, I know that many of you already know it and do it as well, the creator is the incredible Destiny | Howling Libraries | 💫 whom I love as a human being and I respect a lot as a book blogger ❤️, so it’s really a pleasure to start with this new project especially because it’s created by someone who I admire a lot and that makes me very happy, I also really need help to organize my books, So here we go! 👏🏻 
Of course, if you don’t follow Destiny yet, I’ll leave you the link to do it, she’s a super creative and incredible being, so I know you’ll not regret it, she has just opened her YouTube channel (super proud), so it’s the perfect time to meet her and follow her. 😊 


Rules:

  • Link back to the original post at Howling Libraries
  • Sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, ascending
  • Find 5-10 (or more, if you feel ambitious!) titles to purge from your TBR (the “lows”)
    • ALTERNATIVE OPTION: Find 5+ titles that are at the BOTTOM of your TBR—books you want to read someday, just not right now!
  • Post those 5 books in the list, with a brief explanation
  • Next, sort your Goodreads TBR shelf by date added, descending
  • List the last 5 (or more!) books you added to your TBR, with a synopsis or your brief summary of why you added it (the “highs”)

This weekly meme has its rules of course, as you see, but I also wanted to give it my own twist to make it more fun and also fit my needs or what I hope to do with my books and my readings. So I’ve decided that as well as Destiny, I’ll be opening voting every week so that you can participate in the whole process and help me decide which books to prioritize, for this I’ll ask you to vote for one of the books in the “LOWS” section and at not only I’ll be adding it to my priority list, but I’ll also be creating my own TBR Jar with each of your choices!. So, every week the book you choose from my selection will be added to my TBR Jar and then at the end of the month, I’ll choose one of them to read and finally give a real chance to it. I’ll not be removing all my “LOWS”, only some if necessary, maybe one per week or sometimes none, I’ll be super honest about them and I hope you can help me make a decision anything can happen in these posts! LOL 🥰 

I hope you like this idea, I think it will be fun, I’ll be cleaning my Goodreads shelves a bit, which is great, but you can also participate in the process and so will have a super interactive experience, so we can all have a little fun ❤️. I hope you enjoy it, thanks for the support always, from the bottom of my heart & LET’S START!  🌙
