Yadriel has summoned a ghost, and now he can’t get rid of him.

When his traditional Latinx family has problems accepting his gender, Yadriel becomes determined to prove himself a real brujo. With the help of his cousin and best friend Maritza, he performs the ritual himself, and then sets out to find the ghost of his murdered cousin and set it free.

However, the ghost he summons is actually Julian Diaz, the school’s resident bad boy, and Julian is not about to go quietly into death. He’s determined to find out what happened and tie up some loose ends before he leaves. Left with no choice, Yadriel agrees to help Julian, so that they can both get what they want. But the longer Yadriel spends with Julian, the less he wants to let him leave.

Genre: Adult – Mystery/Thriller

With the startling twists of Gone Girl and the haunting emotional power of Room, Mirrorland is a thrilling work of psychological suspense about twin sisters, the man they both love, and the dark childhood they can’t leave behind.

Cat lives in Los Angeles, far away from 36 Westeryk Road, the imposing gothic house in Edinburgh where she and her estranged twin sister, El, grew up. As girls, they invented Mirrorland, a dark, imaginary place under the pantry stairs full of pirates, witches, and clowns. These days Cat rarely thinks about their childhood home, or the fact that El now lives there with her husband Ross.

But when El mysteriously disappears after going out on her sailboat, Cat is forced to return to 36 Westeryk Road, which has scarcely changed in twenty years. The grand old house is still full of shadowy corners, and at every turn Cat finds herself stumbling on long-held secrets and terrifying ghosts from the past. Because someone—El?—has left Cat clues in almost every room: a treasure hunt that leads right back to Mirrorland, where she knows the truth lies crouched and waiting…

A twisty, dark, and brilliantly crafted thriller about love and betrayal, redemption and revenge, Mirrorland is a propulsive, page-turning debut about the power of imagination and the price of freedom.

Double Book Review | Lost in the Never Woods & Watch Over Me 🌲

 🌟 Hi, bookish family! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day; today, I’m more than happy to bring you a double review of my most recent readings.❤️ I love, and it’s a pleasure to be able to bring you a double review of two darkish & atmospheric books that I pretty much enjoyed, so don’t hesitate to let me know everything in the comments, not only what you think about these books in particular, but also tell me a little about what you’ll be reading this week, it’s always fun to know. 😊
Both books have some aspects in common, and also I have felt similar things for the characters; besides that,
they have a very similar atmosphere, so it seemed to me that it made sense to bring them together to talk a little about them. 🌲 Plus, both books are hard-hitting and touch on sensitive topics of trauma, mourning, and healing and growth. 🌟

Mini-Reviews | 2 Great ARCs & 2 Spooky Amazing Stories 🌙

 🌙  Hi, guys! I hope you’re having a beautiful day, it makes me SO happy to come back with another post this month, since I’ve had super busy days, so I’ll celebrate each post that I upload and give it the value it deserves, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do by writing them.❤️ Today I decided to bring you a post with 4 mini-reviews of books that I’ve read in the previous months and I haven’t had time to review before, so I thought it was fun to create a single post where I highlight them and give them the attention they deserve, but It’s also obviously a good way to catch up with them and bring you all my thoughts. 👏🏻 👏🏻
Of course, even though these reviews aren’t as extensive as my regular reviews tend to be, didn’t mean I haven’t touched on every important point, in fact the only difference is that in these reviews I go straight to the point when talking about every aspect of them, cause you know I like to ramble sometimes so I hope it really is something that helps you to know a little about these books, but also that you can get each idea and thought that I want to transmit here.
 🥰


I wanted to thank you as I always try to do, for the love and support that you continue to give me and to the blog in these moments when I can no longer be so active, that always makes me feel super happy and also gives me that encouragement to want to return to write, which you know I love to do with all my heart. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU because also the blog has officially reached 6k followers! 🥳 It’s crazy, it seems like yesterday when I just started posting and it was a disaster (LOL) but even so, I always had so much fun, this space means a lot to me for all the beautiful people I’ve met but also because it is a very special way of expression for me. 😭

Contrary to popular belief, best friends Kate Garfield and Anderson Walker are not codependent. Carpooling to and from theater rehearsals? Environmentally sound and efficient. Consulting each other on every single life decision? Basic good judgment. Pining for the same guys from afar? Shared crushes are more fun anyway.

But when Kate and Andy’s latest long-distance crush shows up at their school, everything goes off script. Matt Olsson is talented and sweet, and Kate likes him. She really likes him. The only problem? So does Anderson.

Turns out, communal crushes aren’t so fun when real feelings are involved. This one might even bring the curtains down on Kate and Anderson’s friendship.

Double ARC Review | This Is Not the Jess Show 📽 & The Afterlife of the Party 🧛

 🌟 Hi bookish family! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day & a GREAT weekend, today I’m more than happy to bring you a double review of my most recent readings.❤️ I love and it’s a pleasure to be able to bring you a double review of two ARCs that I’ve read recently, but in addition to sharing my opinion you know that it’s always a pleasure to meet yours, so don’t hesitate to let me know everything in the comments, not only what you think about these books in particular, but also tell me a little about what you’ll be reading this week, it’s always fun to know. 😊
So, as I said, this time I bring you two ARCs from 2021, that I read during the month of March, both books have been provided to me by publishers via NetGalley so I’m super grateful. 🥰
One of these books is a teen drama full of vampires and supernatural creatures 🧛& on the other hand, we have a story with elements of sci-fi, but also focused on the contemporary side that gives us a new perspective on ambition and human consciousness. 📽 
One of them a unique idea with a solid execution although kind of precipitated & the other a story that could be defined as crazy and funny, but at the same time, it’s everywhere without a clear path to follow.
I’m very excited to tell you EVERYTHING about these books! So without further ado, make yourself comfortable, prepare your favorite drink & let’s get started!

I hope you’re having the most wonderful day & a GREAT weekend, today I’m more than happy to bring you a double review of my most recent readings. ❤️ You know that I LOVE to share all my opinions with you in the most honest way, and above all, I love that we can exchange opinions respectfully, so don’t hesitate to let me know your thoughts in the comments and we can chat a little about it, I also want to know what you’ve been reading this last week & what books accompany you this weekend!!! 😍
As I was saying, I’ll be reviewing two books, one of them is an ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review, for which I’m deeply grateful,
in this book we enter the world of a ballet competition and explored its darkest side 🩰 & the other one is my own choice, a book with a lot of hype which I had only heard the most incredible things about, where we meet a super diverse group of characters while we surround ourselves with a magical landscape. 🌅 I think that one of these stories may have been a totally different experience than I expected, while the other exceeded my expectations. 😊
I’m very excited to tell you EVERYTHING about these books! 👏🏻 So without further ado, make yourself comfortable, prepare your favorite drink & let’s get started!
