Orquídea Divina has lived a life her grandchildren and family don‘t know anything about until she invited them to her funeral and to collect their inheritance.

I loved this magical realism story. The writing and characters were amazing and I loved how intricate the author was in weaving stories inside this story. The story kind of reminded me of Stardust but completely it‘s own at the same time. Probably be rereading this book a lot.

Charlie Vega wants to have a good relationship with her body but it‘s hard when you are coming of age in a Connecticut suburb and your mother continues to leave weight loss shakes for you.

I really enjoyed this story and Charlie‘s issues with her body image. There were times that I wanted to knock Charlie around cause she is so hard on herself but aren‘t we all like this? Always comparing ourselves to others.

That-Bookish-Hiker I felt with Charlie towards the end and understand what she was going through with all those negative thoughts she was having about herself. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 8mo

There is no label —in any language —with the power to liberate. The only truth we can offer one another is love.”

In the second book we immediately pick up where Lobizona left off with Manu and her friends as they fight for a better future for all lobizones and brujas in this retelling of Argentine Folklore.

I loved being back in the world and can‘t wait for book 3. I love the characters and the world.

Nella Rogers works in the publishing business in NYC and the only black girl who works there. Until Hazel, another black girl, joins and Nella is so happy to meet her but then weird things start to happen making Nella question everything.

I enjoyed this book and the topic of internalized racism and how deeply it affects BIPOC but there were too many side stories and characters that it would take me out of the story.

What do you do when you become the governess of twins who catch fire? Lillian decided to help her old high school friend, Madison, out with a situation involving her husband‘s kids from a previous marriage.

The Husband and I listened to the audiobook on a road trip and really enjoyed it. The narration was perfect and there were so many LOL moments that kept us hooked.

Best friends turned best enemies, Zorie & Lennon, find themselves stranded together in the Californian wilderness when a group camping trip goes south.

I really enjoyed all the hiking in this book! It was hard to believe, Zorie, who didn‘t like to do anything physical has no problem hiking in the back country in regular shoes for the first time ever. I did love Lennon and his dry humor. Reagan sucks. Overall great summer read!

16 yr old Quinn Hardwick‘s is having a tough summer in Seattle and to make it worse her former childhood friend moves back.

Quinn was a lot annoying but I had to remind myself she is 16 yrs old. It was ridiculed her to blame Wesley for her parents divorcing. Her father was the one who cause the split but she refused to see that. Which was a little frustrating. But I liked her friends and it was set in Seattle so that was a plus.

This book was addictive and I couldn‘t put it down.

The story picks up a few weeks from where the first book ended. Pip has come to realize some hard facts about herself and tries to wrestle with the new her after what happened in the first book. I like Pip as a character but I really think Ravi steals the show and I wish we could get more of his story. Can‘t wait for the next book!

Andra wakes up from cryonic sleep from a trip across the universe and it‘s 3102, a thousand years after she was suppose to be woken and she is no longer on earth and now she‘s a goddess. It took a awhile to get into this story but once I did, it was easy to get lost in the story. It was hard to get the flow of the way local people spoke but it kind of reminded me of how they spoke in that Disney movie Zenon so that made it easier to read.

16 yr old Maggie Lynch is uprooted from her home in Chicago to Ireland after her mom marries in 1993, the height of Nirvana and the grunge movement. Seeing Maggie growth is the book was my fav thing in this books beside the obvious 90s music name drops. This book was very nostalgic even if I‘ve never visited Ireland, the music alone brought me there in the story. This story had heavy situations like suicide and drugs that tied in with the music.

This is the 6th book ins the series! It didn‘t disappoint. For a small group of people living in the wilderness a lot of dead bodies sure show up out of no where.

I initially thought this was just going to be a repeat of all the other books in the series but of course there was a fresh new take on it. There are some parts that get redundant but those help you haven‘t read the other books in the series yet. Couldn‘t put the book down.

This book is a short story of a group of childhood friends that grew up under the shadow of dictatorship in Chile in 1980s.

While the story is short it def makes it point in the 70 pages it took to tell these children‘s chilling story of growing up and realizing the political agenda of toners infiltrating your life.

This book! The first 50-80 pages were hard for me to get into because I hadn‘t caught the characters cadence but once that happen I couldn‘t put the book down. There was so much going on with the story but it worked and I‘m glad the author included them. Indigenous peoples life history and current life is deeply covered in layers of trauma that have never been acknowledge by everyone else until recently and the author tried to show that.

Yvonne‘s in her senior year trying to decide what to do but has never gotten over the abandonment of her mom at 7 yrs old. Her relationship with her father is non-existent since he is a chef and owns his own restaurant so she doesn‘t see him often. Yvonne for me felt like a real character. She made very human mistakes especially for being 18 and approached them with maturity and honest communication. I really enjoyed this book.

The book was written as part biography and part self help inspo written between the facts of Fridas life and how you can apply her essence to your life. I don‘t typically read nonfiction books like this but was curious about Frida Kahlo since I never rally delved into her life and artwork before. Her life was astounding! The one thing I took away was Frida was just like me and you. A girl exploring her life outside what society wanted.

Penelope Prado wants to follow i her father footsteps, sharing her love of food and Xander Amaro is trying to find a place where he belongs.

I loved this book! I loved how the author didn‘t make Pen‘s depression+anxiety the main focus of the book but instead it was another aspect of Pen. How she got through her tough and regular moments every day. It‘s realistic for the culture and how someone deals with it day to day.

This was suppose to be a twist on Jane Eyre but besides having the main basics, I didn‘t really get the same vibe.

This Jane tries too hard to fit in and be rich like everyone else and she fell in love so fast with Eddie and just let him walk all over her. I love Jane Eyre because she took control of her own life when it wasn‘t something a lot of women did in her time. This Jane was a little too desperate. It did keep me guessing tho.

Zara‘s family has waited years for their visa process to be finalized but some terrible things prevent that.

While this book deals with heavy subject matters like the very flawed immigration system here and the racism, I felt the book lacked Zara‘s voice as a character. I felt like I was being told rather than taken along in the story. Loved Zara‘s relationship with her parents. Wished we got more than the surface relationship with her friends.

This was a slow start for me but once the story got rolling I couldn‘t put it down. There is some stuff in here that some might say isn‘t plausible but I really enjoyed this book and couldn‘t put it down. There were some details in the book that the character would forget that left me wondering what the point was.

Here‘s what happens when your mother dies. It‘s the brightest day of summer and it‘s dark outside. It‘s dark in your house, dark in your room and dark in your heart. You feel like the darkness is going to split you apart.

This book really broke my heart. Tiger is only 16 when her mother suddenly passes away. I loved the way this author wrote about grief while also highlighting all the children who are wards of the state.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Moonprismpower I‘m about a quarter the way through this. I‘m really struggling to pick it up. 😬😬😬 14mo
That-Bookish-Hiker @Moonprismpower I struggled through this as well. The subject matter was very heavy and kind of slow at some points. I ended up taking a break the whole week from it. Then early one weekend morning I couldn‘t the put it down and finished it. 14mo
Moonprismpower Okay I‘ll just get have back up optimistic books and maybe a good uplifting movie to watch after reading. 14mo
That-Bookish-Hiker @Moonprismpower oh yes! I watched the last season of Super Store afterwards and that helped. Def taking long breaks in between helped me. 14mo

It‘s been 7 years since Tress Montors parents disappeared without a trace and she knows only one person with them that night that knows what happened, her ex best friend- Felicity Turnado. She‘ll get her truth even if she has to trap Felicity one brick at a time.

Wow! This book! It‘s was freaking nutso but in such a good way. After that cliffhanger I need book 2 now! This author is always an auto buy for me. Really enjoy her writing.

Smangela I completely agree, this book ate me up!! 1y
Hooked_on_books I‘ve read a couple of hers and they were really good. She really grabs you by the throat and makes you pay attention! I strongly suspect I‘ll end up reading all her books eventually. 1y
