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.

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. 🌟

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!

Double Book Review | Bright Burning Stars 💫 & The House in the Cerulean Sea 🌊

 🌟 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. ❤️ 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!

Double ARC Review | A Curse of Ash and Embers & A Curse of Roses

 🌿 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day by the hand of the most incredible readings.❤️ Today I’m more than happy to bring you a double review of two great books that I’ve read this month, and that I also have the pleasure to say have been ARCs, so THANK YOU SO MUCH to Edelweiss+ & NetGalley for the opportunity to read them. Before starting I want to say THANK YOU my loves for all the support that you have been giving me in my posts, little by little I’m catching up, so I promise you that if you’ve commented on my blog at some point, I will be checking your blog soon and anyway I’m determined to visit as many book bloggers as I can, so don’t worry, I’ll end up visiting you, because you deserve the love, and you’re wonderful. I also want to remind you that I’m working on a project where I’m making a list here on my blog with as many book bloggers as I can, so if you want to participate then write to me in THIS POST or wherever place you want, and I will add you. 😍
Now, going back to today’s post, I have two very magical books to share with you, I’ve enjoyed both very much and although I don’t think they’re perfect, I believe that the failures are really superficial and don’t overshadow these great stories about curses and folklore. On the one hand, we have
A Curse of Ash and Embers (Tales of the Blackbone Witches # 1) by Jo Spurrier, a highly atmospheric book made to devour quickly, it’s a super interesting story with great female power behind & on the other hand, we have A Curse of Roses by Diana Pinguicha which is a story that also revolves around a curse where our main character turns everything she eats into flowers and although it sounds almost poetic, it has been a nightmare for her, so she’ll undertake a journey to find a solution, highly based in Portuguese myths and I’ve loved that.
I hope you enjoy the post and decide to add these books to your TBR! Now, without further ado, let’s get started.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of One of Us Is Lying comes your next obsession. You’ll never feel the same about family again.

Milly, Aubrey, and Jonah Story are cousins, but they barely know each another, and they’ve never even met their grandmother. Rich and reclusive, she disinherited their parents before they were born. So when they each receive a letter inviting them to work at her island resort for the summer, they’re surprised . . . and curious.

Their parents are all clear on one point–not going is not an option. This could be the opportunity to get back into Grandmother’s good graces. But when the cousins arrive on the island, it’s immediately clear that she has different plans for them. And the longer they stay, the more they realize how mysterious–and dark–their family’s past is.

The entire Story family has secrets. Whatever pulled them apart years ago isn’t over–and this summer, the cousins will learn everything.

Double ARC Review | Shifting Shadows (Narun, #2) & War of the Twin Swords

 🌿 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having the most wonderful day by the hand of the most incredible readings. ❤️ Today I’m more than happy to bring you a double review of two great books that I’ve read this month, and that I also have the pleasure to say have been ARCs. Before starting as I always like to do, I want to thank both authors for contacting me to review their books, it’s a great honor for me. This time I come with an action-packed short book highly based on the story of King Arthur, but with its own original touches as well and very powerful female leaders & on the other hand, I bring a sequel to a super addictive urban fantasy that combines very well elements of fantasy with contemporary touches and a good atmosphere. 👏🏻 
You’ll see that my reviews aren’t as extensive as always, it’s because I haven’t had much time this month, I promise that it will be like that again next month, but for now, I focus on the most important details and don’t worry because I don’t leave anything out of my reviews and I still share with you all my thoughts, the good ones, and the not so good ones. 🥰 
So without further ado, I hope you enjoy it, you know that I adore sharing my thoughts with you 😊 & LET’S GET STARTED!
