Waiting on Wednesday [189] – LABYRINTH LOST by Zoraida Cordova

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:

Labyrinth LostNothing says Happy Birthday like summoning the spirits of your dead relatives.

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!

  1. Labyrinth Lost is on my radar, too. I met Zoraida last year at the Boston Teen Author Festival (and bought the first Vicious Deep book, which I still haven’t read yet but will at some point). But she was very friendly when she signed my copy. Enjoy!

  2. Becky just featured this one (I think it was last week?), and it was the first time I’d seen it! I like the cover. ;D I hope you enjoy this book when you read it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a lovely day. 🙂

  3. Glad you are feeling better and maybe time away from the blog was just what you needed. I know I sure look forward to seeing your posts so would hate for you to leave it so personally I hope you keep on. I have an ARC of this book, which I couldn’t resist asking for because of the cover and because of the word “witch.” Hopes it as great as it sounds.

      Thanks Barb! I think a break is good every now and then:-) Lucky you to have an ARC, I hope you love it!

      Yes, blogging can take over your life if you let it:-) I’m just such a busy person I can’t let it do that to me, but it sure is good to be back:-)

      I tend to take comparisons with a grain of salt, since many publishers just get it wrong, so I’m totally excited for this one without worry about that blurb:-)
