The Raven boys or 3 private school teens and their psychic friend search for an immortal king in Virginia

The Raven Boys is the first novel in The Raven Cycles series by Maggie Stiefvater. Maggie Stiefvater also wrote the YA series Mercy falls which revolved around werewolves. I loved the Mercy falls series and I’m already liking this series.

Hello readers and feliz dia de muertos! I hope you have been eating celebrating with love ones. If you want to read a dia de los muertos story written by yours truly you can read Limon y Sal on this site or Wattpad.

Today I want to review Wayward Witch, the final novel in the Brooklyn Brujas series. The series revolves around three teen sisters who come into their magic powers and accidentally turn their lives inside out. For example, in the first novel middle sister, Alex accidentally sends her entire family to the underworld. The second novel deals with the eldest sister, Lula angering the goddess of death.

Rose Mortiz prides herself on being the ruler follower amongst her sisters. However, when Rose casts a truth spell on her death day, she ends up learning more than she ever wanted from her family.

Books, movies, and Podcasts to enjoy this spooky season

Hey book readers! I hope you have gotten a great start to your October, whether that be diving into your spooky book stack, decorating your space for falloween, or watching some spooky faves.

This past week, I’ve been neglecting my reading of Wayward Witch, and have instead been focusing on spooky crafts. If you follow me on IG, you got to see me work on some Halloween PJ shorts and scrunchies. Since I haven’t been doing much reading, I thought I share with my readers some perfect books, movies, and podcasts to get into the Halloween spirit.

Add Dear Martin to the top of your TBR

“I scored a 1560 and a 34 on my SATs and ACTs respectively, and despite growing up in a “bad” area (not too far from your old stomping grounds), I have a future ahead of me that will likely include an Ivy League education, an eventual law degree, and a career in public policy. Sadly during the wee hours of this morning, literally none of that mattered.”

Books I did not finish (DNFed) in May

Sorry for the delayed posts but I felt that I needed to take a step back from publishing reviews on this blog and listen. As many of you know by know, the death of George Floyd sparked a revolution and I felt that my energy could better be spent sharing/signing petitions, donating, and listening.

Just because the movement appears to be fizzling out, our work is not done. Systematic racism and the oppression of Black bodies has always been an issue in the U.S and moving forward we must continue to listen and undo the racial bias in ourselves.

Chilling Effect is the Latinx space novel we deserve!

Hello readers! I am finally back with another book review. For this week’s review, I’m jumping away from the spicy crazy romance of Beautiful Bastard to the spicy space adventure that is Chilling Effect by Valerie Valdes.

As mentioned before, this novel is on the spicy side, and that includes lots of bilingual swearing and implied sex scenes. So keep that in mind if you’re planning to gift this to a younger reader.

If you are a sci-fi fan and have been longing for a story starring a Latinx Capitan and psychic cats, continue reading.
