Read at the beginning of this month. This book was like a tv soap opera. A lot of drama with many family secrets, everyone deceived someone😳and everything was connected. I liked Guillermo character, a sculpture so intense in his emotions. I think the ending was a little too convenient, cheesy. Noah was lucky at the end (no spoiler🤷🏽‍♀️) but Noah‘s anguish was so sad. That scene with his dad😢Oscar just made me laugh☺️ 3.5/3.8⭐️

Read during first days of this month. For me, this is my favorite book in this trilogy but I think is because I liked the dynamic between Persephone, Calla and Maura. There is something sad that happened in this book😢I saw in this book more action. As a YA fantasy it was good 3.8⭐️

Read early this month. I re-read this book to clarify some points in order to complete the series. Still interesting but I think that sometimes there are unnecessary details. Like it but not love it. 3.5/3.8 ⭐️

If This Gets Out: A Novel | Cale Dietrich, Sophie Gonzales

Cute m/m romance. Liked how well this topic was developed, discover what you want, your identity, how to express to others that you are gay, fear to be rejected, family support, friendship, religion. But there were parts where I couldn‘t easily identify who was talking, Ruben or Zach. The voices in my opinion were not well delimited even when characters were developed by different author. Some parts were repetitive, little cheesy. But I like it.

Gissy Angel, that character, made me laugh. 3⭐️

Great sequel. It followed that fast pace, with action and interesting twists. But ending suggests that maybe this is not the end of that story. I don‘t how related is the companion book with this story. Let‘s see. 4⭐️

This book was not what I expected. I knew was a retelling of Romeo and Juliet so I thought would be a romance story. Loved it. In some parts I didn‘t see it as a YA. It is about betrayals, revenge between these two gangs and that impossible romance. It has this element that I don‘t know if it is fantasy with a touch of sci-fi? Something is killing people from both gangs and both gangs are trying to investigate the origin of it, the cure⬇️

Gissy Cont. the eradication of it. Who created it? Why? And that ending, was perfect. I couldn‘t put it down, I almost finished it in one day. 4⭐️Ready for the sequel.

2nd book completed during #SuperSeptember Readathon @Andrew65 This is the 3rd book in this trilogy. First book I hated that main character but the author was amazing in giving us a chance to know her better. Book 2 was fantastic and the conclusion was sad but didn‘t disappoint me. But it was so sad😢I really liked this world and it has many similarities with Bone Witch is some characters magic system and some actions, too similar😳4⭐️

2nd book in YA fantasy. I really liked this book more that the first one. We will see new characters and how and why the Rose Society is created, who will be the members of this new society. I liked these new characters. You can‘t trust anyone and everyone has a purpose to act and behave they way they do. At the beginning was a little slow but then it was pure action. I can‘t wait to read the third one. What is going to happen? I don‘t know😱

Gissy For a YA fantasy, I think it was pretty good for me 4⭐️
