Book Review || The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

 💫 Hi guys, I’M BACK!! and I hope you’re having a wonderful day, enjoying your readings 💞
I know I’ve been absent in the past few days, but I felt that I needed to relax and be alone with myself until I felt better. I feel much better today, I haven’t gotten a job yet, but I’ve been sending and taking my resume everywhere and most people have been very kind so I have faith that everything will be solved soon. My boyfriend is a wonderful being who has been holding me as well as my family, I really don’t know what I would do without them, but they weren’t the only ones who were and are there for me, but also I have YOU and these days I have realized how much you mean to me and the huge impact you have on my life. I couldn’t be more grateful for all the beautiful messages and comments of love, encouragement, and support that I’ve received in these difficult days. I feel that every time I read a comment it fills me with a beautiful force that helps me move on and believe in myself. I don’t know what I’d do without you, I LOVE YOU, today and forever. Creating this blog has been one of my smartest decisions I swear, it’s my escape, my passion, and my safe place. 😊 
So, I’ll continue posting frequently as always, because honestly, I miss a lot when I don’t do it and later if something happens, I’ll keep you informed. THANK YOU SO MUCH, guys, I feel like the luckiest person in the world, I’m blessed you’re there for me 😭 ❤️  💫

Greece in the age of heroes. Patroclus, an awkward young prince, has been exiled to the court of King Peleus and his perfect son Achilles. By all rights their paths should never cross, but Achilles takes the shamed prince as his friend, and as they grow into young men skilled in the arts of war and medicine their bond blossoms into something deeper – despite the displeasure of Achilles’ mother Thetis, a cruel sea goddess. But then word comes that Helen of Sparta has been kidnapped. Torn between love and fear for his friend, Patroclus journeys with Achilles to Troy, little knowing that the years that follow will test everything they hold dear.

Profoundly moving and breathtakingly original, this rendering of the epic Trojan War is a dazzling feat of the imagination, a devastating love story, and an almighty battle between gods and kings, peace and glory, immortal fame and the human heart.

ARC Review || All of Us with Wings by Michelle Ruiz Keil

Genre: YA|Magical-Realism|Fantasy|LGBT+

You can buy it HEREBook Depository

Michelle Ruiz Keil’s YA fantasy debut about love, found family, and healing is an ode to post-punk San Francisco through the eyes of a Mexican-American girl.

Seventeen-year-old Xochi is alone in San Francisco, running from her painful past: the mother who abandoned her, the man who betrayed her. Then one day, she meets Pallas, a precocious twelve-year-old who lives with her rockstar family in one of the city’s storybook Victorians. Xochi accepts a position as Pallas’s live-in governess and quickly finds her place in their household, which is relaxed and happy despite the band’s larger-than-life fame.

But on the night of the Vernal Equinox, as a concert afterparty rages in the house below, Xochi and Pallas accidentally summon a pair of ancient creatures devoted to avenging the wrongs of Xochi’s adolescence. She would do anything to preserve her new life, but with the creatures determined to exact vengeance on those who’ve hurt her, no one is safe—not the family she’s chosen, nor the one she left behind.

 💫 Hi guys!! I hope you’re REALLY well, that you’re having a beautiful day and you’re enjoying your readings.💞
Lately as it’s very common during Pride Month I‘ve been seeing many people making LGBT + books lists, from those who recommend to those who come out this year and others, as myself bring you today, have chosen to share a list of books that although we haven’t read yet, we’re dying to do it very soon.
I plan later in the month to bring you my LGBT+ book recommendations as well, with books that I personally have loved, but first I wanted to share with you those who are still on my TBR.
 🌈 I LOVE reading books that present characters that represent the LGBT+ community in a respectful and amazing way, I’m heterosexual, but I’ve always been a huge supporter of the community and I’m 100% on board in each movement, because nobody should fight and suffer for loving someone, so always here for all my beautiful queer people out there. 🌈 
This list will consist of my Top 10 of the books that I’m most excited to read, they’ll not be in any order, because I’m honestly super excited by all these books and I’ve simply chosen 10 to not make of this an infinite list  😅 
I hope you share with me your thoughts and feelings about these books if you have already read them, that will help me create a personal list with those books that I should prioritize and read soon.
I hope you enjoy it and hopefully, you’ll have a new title to make your TBR grow!!!
Without more further ado, let’s start! 💫 Continue reading

ARC Review || The Lost Coast by Amy Rose Capetta

By: Amy Rose Capetta

Pages: 352

Published: May 14th, 2019

GenreYA|Magic|Fantasy|LGBT+

You can buy it HEREBook Depository

The spellbinding tale of six queer witches forging their own paths, shrouded in the mist, magic, and secrets of the ancient California redwoods.

Danny didn’t know what she was looking for when she and her mother spread out a map of the United States and Danny put her finger down on Tempest, California. What she finds are the Grays: a group of friends who throw around terms like queer and witch like they’re ordinary and everyday, though they feel like an earthquake to Danny. But Danny didn’t just find the Grays. They cast a spell that calls her halfway across the country, because she has something they need: she can bring back Imogen, the most powerful of the Grays, missing since the summer night she wandered into the woods alone. But before Danny can find Imogen, she finds a dead boy with a redwood branch through his heart. Something is very wrong amid the trees and fog of the Lost Coast, and whatever it is, it can kill. Lush, eerie, and imaginative, Amy Rose Capetta’s tale overflows with the perils and power of discovery — and what it means to find your home, yourself, and your way forward.

Elias Caldwell needs more than his life in nineteenth-century England has to offer. He’d rather go on an adventure than spend one more minute at some stuffy party. When his grandfather gives him a pocket watch he claims can transport him to any place and time, Elias doesn’t believe it…until he’s whisked away to twenty-first-century America.

Tyler Forrester just wants to fall hopelessly in love. But making that kind of connection with someone has been more of a dream than reality. Then a boy appears out of thin air, a boy from the past. As he helps Elias navigate a strange new world for him, introducing him to the wonders of espresso, binge-watching, and rock and roll, Tyler discovers Elias is exactly who he was missing.

But their love has time limit. Elias’s disappearance from the past has had devastating side effects, and now he must choose where he truly belongs—in the Victorian era, or with the boy who took him on an adventure he never dreamed possible?
