Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and is a fun way to share upcoming books that you’re excited about with other bloggers and readers.
So it’s been a while, yeah? I missed the last two WoWs due to having an extremely nasty strain of flu, and during that time (I hate to say this) I actually enjoyed my time away from blogging. As in, I didn’t feel the urge to blog AT ALL. Which scares me, because this blog has been an important part of my life for nearly five years. But I’m jumping back in, testing the waters, so to speak, to see if the spark is still there. Only time will tell, I guess! But in the meantime, here is a book that sounds like a bunch of fun:
I fall to my knees. Shattered glass, melted candles and the outline of scorched feathers are all that surround me. Every single person who was in my house – my entire family — is gone.
Alex is a bruja, the most powerful witch in a generation…and she hates magic. At her Deathday celebration, Alex performs a spell to rid herself of her power. But it backfires. Her whole family vanishes into thin air, leaving her alone with Nova, a brujo boy she can’t trust. A boy whose intentions are as dark as the strange markings on his skin.
The only way to get her family back is to travel with Nova to Los Lagos, a land in-between, as dark as Limbo and as strange as Wonderland…
Beautiful Creatures meets Daughter of Smoke and Bone with an infusion of Latin American tradition in this highly original fantasy adventure.
Labyrinth Lost (Brooklyn Brujas #1) by Zoraida Córdova. Releases in September 2016 from Sourcebooks. I love the Day of the Dead vibe going on here, and the story sounds like just my thing. (Whatever “my thing” is right now, I’m honestly not sure what that is!) I haven’t read Córdova’s Vicious Deep series, but I know lots of readers who have enjoyed it.
Let me know what you’re waiting on this week!
