🦇 Hi, beautiful bookish friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful day, full of the best readings! ❤️ Today I’m bringing you a new double review in this horror month, where I’m reading spooky books and bringing you, of course, all my honest and respectful opinions about them. 😊 This time I’m bringing you two very different reviews one from the other, as one of these books I really liked while the other was a disappointing surprise. 🥺 So I’m sure it will be quite polemic, as one of these books is also very much loved, so I’m so sorry I can’t share that emotion. I’ll be reviewing, on the one hand, The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich: a dark story full of incognitos where we’ll explore a mysterious unsolved case that happened 25 years ago, involving twin sisters sharing the same body… all this told in a very original format 👻 & on the other hand, we have The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones: A book with a very particular twist where we follow a group of Native American men who must face their past when they’re hunted by a vengeful spirit hunger of revenge.🦌 I hope you enjoy today’s post, and of course, I invite you to leave me all your thoughts, I love to chat with you, so without further ado, LET’S GET STARTED! 🦇
🌪 Hi, guys! I hope you’re having an amazing day, full of the best readings!❤️ Today I bring you a double review of the books I’ve been reading recently. 😊 Of course, these books will be spooky editions during this month, so you can find everything I’ll be trying to read during the month of October on my TBR. 🕯 But today we’ll focus on these two stories, on one side we have: There’s Someone Inside Your House, a book where we follow a killer who’s murdering students, but not without stalking them first from inside their own homes, and a group of guys trying to figure out what connects the victims, and who’s behind the killing 🔪 & on the other side: The Taking of Jake Livingston, where we follow a young man who can see and feel the world of the dead, and while trying to survive in a racist society he’ll face a completely different struggle with a spirit who wants revenge. 👻 I hope you enjoy both reviews very much, you know I love to know what you think, so feel free to let me know all about it in the comments! 🥰 Now yes, make yourself comfortable, and LET’S GET STARTED! 🌪
The Scions roam free, and only the sorceress can hunt them…
After the battle with storm god Molech Suun, a city is in ruins and a new Archmage holds the Syndicate’s leash. But while Gwyn has accepted her fate – to hunt down and destroy the remaining Scions – her loyalty is still to her old master Faolan, held captive by a cunning necromancer.
Saving Faolan means leaving the wizards and the Clockwork City behind. With the shapeshifter Lucian at her side, Gwyn embarks on a dangerous journey across the sea, to lands where pirate kings rule and wild magic sings.
But sorceresses are heir to a dark legacy of blood – and Gwyn soon finds that she’s the one being hunted.
The Scions want her dead, and a new enemy sends threats and warnings that can’t be ignored. As Gwyn struggles to balance her desires and her destiny, she finds herself unprepared for what awaits her beyond the city walls. And far to the south, amid the ashes of a fallen kingdom, a familiar foe is setting deadly plans in motion…
The Stars Beyond the Stone is the dazzling third instalment in Bonnie Wynne’s epic fantasy saga, The Price of Magic.
👓 Hi, bookish friends! How are you? I hope you’re having a wonderful day, full of the best reading.❤️ Today I’m super excited to bring you what will be my last post for a few weeks, since as I’ve told you before, I’ll be taking a couple of weeks off starting Monday, but I still wanted to bring you one more post before then to have fun and share together. 😊 So I decided to bring you today a mini list where I’ll share with you 5 of those popular authors I haven’t read yet (but, want to).I think that besides the fact that I love sharing this kind of stuff here on the blog, it will also be a super useful way for me to remember how much I really want to read these authors’ books, because I know they’re all super talented and I’ve heard the best things. I also think it’s great to have the chance to share with you these authors so we can exchange opinions. I would love to know if you’ve read any of them and how you feel about their work, what are your faves, etc. I think it’s a good and interesting topic for discussion. 🥰
My plan today is to mention each author in no specific order and also to share with you some points as to why I’m interested in reading these authors. 👏🏻 I really have no reason not to have read them yet, that’s why I won’t talk extensively about that, since there’s not much to say, but I wanted to make it a bit more interactive, so I’ll share, as I said, some positive points why they’re still on my TBR. 😍 On the other hand, I’ll also be sharing the books, of each respective authors, that are on my TBR, so you can leave me your opinion about them and let me know what you think. I hope it’s something entertaining to read, and if you’d like to do it on your own blog, please do! I’d love to see other readers’ choices as well. 🌟
I hope you enjoy it, thanks for always being there to support me and the blog, I deeply appreciate it! See you soon when I get back from my weeks off with more content and new challenges. I love you all!!! 💞 & without further ado, let’s get started! 👓
‼️ PS: I have a review on the calendar that I’ll be uploading on September 15th, so I hope you enjoy that once it’s posted.
Meg has her entire life set up perfectly: her boyfriend Mason is sweet and supportive, she and her best friend Emily plan to head to Cornell together in the fall, and she even finds time to clock shifts phonebanking at a voter registration call center in her Philadelphia suburb. But everything changes when one of those calls connects her to a stranger from small-town Ohio, who gets under her skin from the moment he picks up the phone.
Colby is stuck in a rut, reeling from a family tragedy and working a dead-end job—unsure what his future holds, or if he even cares. The last thing he has time for is some privileged rich girl preaching the sanctity of the political process. So he says the worst thing he can think of and hangs up.
But things don’t end there.…
That night on the phone winds up being the first in a series of candid, sometimes heated, always surprising conversations that lead to a long-distance friendship and then—slowly—to something more. Across state lines and phone lines, Meg and Colby form a once-in-a-lifetime connection. But in the end, are they just too different to make it work?
You Say It First is a propulsive, layered novel about how sometimes the person who has the least in common with us can be the one who changes us most.
🌿 Hi, friends! How are you? I hope you’re doing great! ❤️Today, I bring you a new double review of a couple of quite shocking and unique books I’ve read recently. 👓 I don’t usually put the books I review for similarities by far but this time I think both books coincide in that they’re quite whimsical, fantastical and very atmospheric, so if any of those characteristics sound good, these reads might be for you. 👏🏻 On the one hand, we have a read full of super unique magic that focuses on nature and caring for the planet, and on the other hand we have an intricate and somewhat sinister plot involving two sisters and a mystery revolving around their missing-famous mother. Both are good plot ideas, but I confess that one of them stood out for me, so without further ado, I’m dying to tell you more about them, so I hope you enjoy the reviews & let’s get started! 🌿
One of the most twisty, surprising, engaging page-turner YAs you’ll read this year—We Were Liars meets Black Mirror, with a dash of Studio Ghibli.
Cee has been trapped on an abandoned island for three years without any recollection of how she arrived, or memories from her life prior. All she knows is that somewhere out there, beyond the horizon, she has a sister named Kay, and it’s up to Cee to cross the ocean and find her.
In a world apart, 16-year-old STEM prodigy Kasey Mizuhara lives in an eco-city built for people who protected the planet―and now need protecting from it. With natural disasters on the rise due to climate change, eco-cities provide clean air, water, and shelter. Their residents, in exchange, must spend at least a third of their time in stasis pods, conducting business virtually whenever possible to reduce their environmental footprint. While Kasey, an introvert and loner, doesn’t mind the lifestyle, her sister Celia hated it. Popular and lovable, Celia much preferred the outside world. But no one could have predicted that Celia would take a boat out to sea, never to return.
Now it’s been three months since Celia’s disappearance, and Kasey has given up hope. Logic says that her sister must be dead. But nevertheless, she decides to retrace Celia’s last steps. Where they’ll lead her, she does not know. Her sister was full of secrets. But Kasey has a secret of her own.
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.
⚡️ Hi, friends! how are you? what have you been doing? I hope you’re very well, enjoying the day surrounded by the best readings!.❤️ Today super excited, as every time I post lol, but this time I bring you two reviews that I was hoping to actually bring you for a while now and that I’ve finally been able to write, so here we are!Both books this time are ARCs, so first I want to take a second to thank the publishers and authors very much for sending me these copies in exchange for honest reviews. 😊 I’m more than happy because not only it’s a pleasure for me to talk a little about not-so-well-known books, but I’ve also adored BOTH! So, I really hope you decide to add them to your TBR to give them a chance sometime soon. Both are dark fantasy books, with unique worlds & supremely interesting characters, plus they both also have big plot twists and the writers are very addictive! 😍 Now without further ado, I hope you enjoy the post very much, and LET’S GET STARTED!⚡️
🌟 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. 🌟
