As every month i bring you a list of my most anticipated books of the month! I hope you can find something that interests you and you enjoy some incredible readings this month!

Infinity Reaper (Infinity Cycle, #2)

Release Date: March 2nd

Emil and Brighton Rey defied the odds. They beat the Blood Casters and escaped with their lives–or so they thought. When Brighton drank the Reaper’s Blood, he believed it would make him invincible, but instead the potion is killing him.

In Emil’s race to find an antidote that will not only save his brother but also rid him of his own unwanted phoenix powers, he will have to dig deep into the very past lives he’s trying to outrun. Though he needs the help of the Spell Walkers now more than ever, their ranks are fracturing, with Maribelle’s thirst for revenge sending her down a dangerous path.

Meanwhile, Ness is being abused by Senator Iron for political gain, his rare shifting ability making him a dangerous weapon. As much as Ness longs to send Emil a signal, he knows the best way to keep Emil safe from his corrupt father is to keep him at a distance.

The battle for peace is playing out like an intricate game of chess, and as the pieces on the board move into place, Emil starts to realize that he may have been competing against the wrong enemy all along.

Starfish

Release Date: March 9th

Ellie is tired of being fat-shamed and does something about it in this poignant debut novel-in-verse.

Ever since Ellie wore a whale swimsuit and made a big splash at her fifth birthday party, she’s been bullied about her weight. To cope, she tries to live by the Fat Girl Rules–like “no making waves,” “avoid eating in public,” and “don’t move so fast that your body jiggles.” And she’s found her safe space–her swimming pool–where she feels weightless in a fat-obsessed world. In the water, she can stretch herself out like a starfish and take up all the room she wants. It’s also where she can get away from her pushy mom, who thinks criticizing Ellie’s weight will motivate her to diet. Fortunately, Ellie has allies in her dad, her therapist, and her new neighbor, Catalina, who loves Ellie for who she is. With this support buoying her, Ellie might finally be able to cast aside the Fat Girl Rules and starfish in real life–by unapologetically being her own fabulous self.

When We Were Infinite

Release Date: March 9th

All Beth wants is for her tight-knit circle of friends — Grace Nakamura, Brandon Lin, Sunny Chen, and Jason Tsou — to stay together. With her family splintered and her future a question mark, these friends are all she has — even if she sometimes wonders if she truly fits in with them. Besides, she’s certain she’ll never be able to tell Jason how she really feels about him, so friendship will have to be enough.

Then Beth witnesses a private act of violence in Jason’s home, and the whole group is shaken. Beth and her friends make a pact to do whatever it takes to protect Jason, no matter the sacrifice. But when even their fierce loyalty isn’t enough to stop Jason from making a life-altering choice, Beth must decide how far she’s willing to go for him—and how much of herself she’s willing to give up.

From award-winning author Kelly Loy Gilbert comes a powerful, achingly romantic drama about the secrets we keep, from each other and from ourselves, perfect for fans of Permanent Record and I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter.

Can't Take That Away

Release Date: March 9th

An empowering and emotional debut about a genderqueer teen who finds the courage to stand up and speak out for equality when they are discriminated against by their high school administration.

Carey Parker dreams of being a diva, and bringing the house down with song. They can hit every note of all the top pop and Broadway hits. But despite their talent, emotional scars from an incident with a homophobic classmate and their grandmother’s spiraling dementia make it harder and harder for Carey to find their voice.

Then Carey meets Cris, a singer/guitarist who makes Carey feel seen for the first time in their life. With the rush of a promising new romantic relationship, Carey finds the confidence to audition for the role of Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, in the school musical, setting off a chain reaction of prejudice by Carey’s tormentor and others in the school. It’s up to Carey, Cris, and their friends to defend their rights–and they refuse to be silenced.

Told in alternating chapters with identifying pronouns, debut author Steven Salvatore’s Can’t Take That Away conducts a powerful, uplifting anthem, a swoony romance, and an affirmation of self-identity that will ignite the activist in all of us. 

The Mirror Season

Release Date: March 16th

“An unforgettable story of trauma and healing, told in achingly beautiful prose with great tenderness and care.” —#1 New York Times-bestselling author Karen M. McManus

When two teens discover that they were both sexually assaulted at the same party, they develop a cautious friendship through her family’s possibly-magical pastelería, his secret forest of otherworldly trees, and the swallows returning to their hometown, in Anna-Marie McLemore’s The Mirror Season

Graciela Cristales’ whole world changes after she and a boy she barely knows are assaulted at the same party. She loses her gift for making enchanted pan dulce. Neighborhood trees vanish overnight, while mirrored glass appears, bringing reckless magic with it. And Ciela is haunted by what happened to her, and what happened to the boy whose name she never learned.

But when the boy, Lock, shows up at Ciela’s school, he has no memory of that night, and no clue that a single piece of mirrored glass is taking his life apart. Ciela decides to help him, which means hiding the truth about that night. Because Ciela knows who assaulted her, and him. And she knows that her survival, and his, depend on no one finding out what really happened.

Lost in the Never Woods

Release Date: March 23th

When children go missing, people want answers. When children go missing in the small coastal town of Astoria, people look to Wendy for answers.

It’s been five years since Wendy and her two brothers went missing in the woods, but when the town’s children start to disappear, the questions surrounding her brothers’ mysterious circumstances are brought back into light. Attempting to flee her past, Wendy almost runs over an unconscious boy lying in the middle of the road, and gets pulled into the mystery haunting the town.

Peter, a boy she thought lived only in her stories, claims that if they don’t do something, the missing children will meet the same fate as her brothers. In order to find them and rescue the missing kids, Wendy must confront what’s waiting for her in the woods.

Listen, so many good books are coming out this year i can’t keep up, but it doesn’t mean i won’t try my very best! Hope you find something that catches your eye and enjoy it too! ♥

Happy Readings!

March’s TBR

Wow, i can’t believe we are in March already… Luckily by the end of the month i’ll be having a holiday and i’ll have tons of time to read! (or so i hope!) Easter is coming you all!

So this month, i’ll try to read the books i didn’t from February’s TBR and then some more!

Here are the books i want to read this March!

Concrete Rose (The Hate U Give, #0)

International phenomenon Angie Thomas revisits Garden Heights seventeen years before the events of The Hate U Give in this searing and poignant exploration of Black boyhood and manhood.

If there’s one thing seventeen-year-old Maverick Carter knows, it’s that a real man takes care of his family. As the son of a former gang legend, Mav does that the only way he knows how: dealing for the King Lords. With this money he can help his mom, who works two jobs while his dad’s in prison.

Life’s not perfect, but with a fly girlfriend and a cousin who always has his back, Mav’s got everything under control.

Until, that is, Maverick finds out he’s a father.

Suddenly he has a baby, Seven, who depends on him for everything. But it’s not so easy to sling dope, finish school, and raise a child. So when he’s offered the chance to go straight, he takes it. In a world where he’s expected to amount to nothing, maybe Mav can prove he’s different.

When King Lord blood runs through your veins, though, you can’t just walk away. Loyalty, revenge, and responsibility threaten to tear Mav apart, especially after the brutal murder of a loved one. He’ll have to figure out for himself what it really means to be a man.

Yes No Maybe So

New York Times bestselling authors Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed have crafted a resonant, funny, and memorable story about the power of love and resistance.

YES
Jamie Goldberg is cool with volunteering for his local state senate candidate—as long as he’s behind the scenes. When it comes to speaking to strangers (or, let’s face it, speaking at all to almost anyone), Jamie’s a choke artist. There’s no way he’d ever knock on doors to ask people for their votes…until he meets Maya.

NO
Maya Rehman’s having the worst Ramadan ever. Her best friend is too busy to hang out, her summer trip is canceled, and now her parents are separating. Why her mother thinks the solution to her problems is political canvassing—with some awkward dude she hardly knows—is beyond her.

MAYBE SO
Going door to door isn’t exactly glamorous, but maybe it’s not the worst thing in the world. After all, the polls are getting closer—and so are Maya and Jamie. Mastering local activism is one thing. Navigating the cross-cultural romance of the century is another thing entirely.

Infinity Reaper (Infinity Cycle, #2)

Emil and Brighton Rey defied the odds. They beat the Blood Casters and escaped with their lives–or so they thought. When Brighton drank the Reaper’s Blood, he believed it would make him invincible, but instead the potion is killing him.

In Emil’s race to find an antidote that will not only save his brother but also rid him of his own unwanted phoenix powers, he will have to dig deep into the very past lives he’s trying to outrun. Though he needs the help of the Spell Walkers now more than ever, their ranks are fracturing, with Maribelle’s thirst for revenge sending her down a dangerous path.

Meanwhile, Ness is being abused by Senator Iron for political gain, his rare shifting ability making him a dangerous weapon. As much as Ness longs to send Emil a signal, he knows the best way to keep Emil safe from his corrupt father is to keep him at a distance.

The battle for peace is playing out like an intricate game of chess, and as the pieces on the board move into place, Emil starts to realize that he may have been competing against the wrong enemy all along. 

Breathless

Before: With graduation on the horizon, budding writer Claudine Henry is making plans: college in the fall, become a famous author, and maybe–finally–have sex. She doesn’t even need to be in love. Then her dad drops a bombshell: he’s leaving Claude’s mother. Suddenly, Claude’s entire world feels like a lie, and her future anything but under control.

After: Claude’s mom whisks them away to the last place Claude could imagine nursing a broken heart: a remote, mosquito-infested island off the coast of Georgia. But then Jeremiah Crew happens. Miah is a local trail guide with a passion for photography–and a past he doesn’t like to talk about. He’s brash and enigmatic, and even more infuriatingly, he’s the only one who seems to see Claude for who she wants to be. So when Claude decides to sleep with Miah, she tells herself it’s just sex, nothing more. There’s not enough time to fall in love, especially if it means putting her already broken heart at risk.

Compulsively readable and impossible to forget, Jennifer Niven’s luminous new novel is an insightful portrait of a young woman ready to write her own story.

Call Down the Hawk (Dreamer, #1)

The dreamers walk among us . . . and so do the dreamed. Those who dream cannot stop dreaming – they can only try to control it. Those who are dreamed cannot have their own lives – they will sleep forever if their dreamers die.

And then there are those who are drawn to the dreamers. To use them. To trap them. To kill them before their dreams destroy us all.

Ronan Lynch is a dreamer. He can pull both curiosities and catastrophes out of his dreams and into his compromised reality.

Jordan Hennessy is a thief. The closer she comes to the dream object she is after, the more inextricably she becomes tied to it.

Carmen Farooq-Lane is a hunter. Her brother was a dreamer . . . and a killer. She has seen what dreaming can do to a person. And she has seen the damage that dreamers can do. But that is nothing compared to the destruction that is about to be unleashed. . . .

Yes, i’m very ashamed i haven’t read Call Down The Hawk yet, because i loved The Raven Cycle so much, but i hope i get to do it this month! Obviously i hope i read some more in March but these are the MUST of the month!

What are you planning on reading this March? Leave your comment down below and if you do a TBR post yourself don’t forget to share it too!

Infinity Son (Infinity Cycle #1) by Adam Silvera

Infinity Son (Infinity Cycle, #1)

INFINITY SON (Infinity Cycle #1) BY ADAM SILVERA

Genre: Urban Fantasy, YA, Queer
Pages: 368
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children’s UK
Rating: 3.25 stars (goodreads)

Summary: Balancing epic and intensely personal stakes, bestselling author Adam Silvera’s Infinity Son is a gritty, fast-paced adventure about two brothers caught up in a magical war generations in the making.

Growing up in New York, brothers Emil and Brighton always idolized the Spell Walkers—a vigilante group sworn to rid the world of specters. While the Spell Walkers and other celestials are born with powers, specters take them, violently stealing the essence of endangered magical creatures.

Brighton wishes he had a power so he could join the fray. Emil just wants the fighting to stop. The cycle of violence has taken a toll, making it harder for anyone with a power to live peacefully and openly. In this climate of fear, a gang of specters has been growing bolder by the day.

Then, in a brawl after a protest, Emil manifests a power of his own—one that puts him right at the heart of the conflict and sets him up to be the heroic Spell Walker Brighton always wanted to be.

Brotherhood, love, and loyalty will be put to the test, and no one will escape the fight unscathed.

First of all i wanna say i’m a huge fan of Adam Silvera’s work. I think i read all his books to this day and i loved all of them. This one fell just a little short in comparison to other of his works.

Let’s first talk about the good things about the book, i truly loved the characters and came to care about many of them. Emil and Brighton were amazing, as brothers and each one by themselves. The rest of the cast was interesting too, even the bad guys were intersting.

As always the way Adam writes is awesome, you can really feel the action on the story and you feel like you are totally there. Adam’s writing is amazing like that.

The problems i had with the book were the probabiblities of things happening at the exact moment, for instance there are a few plot twists that come from nowhere because you have no information whatsoever about the stuff they are talking about, just randomly … “oh, you know what? blah blah blah”.

I’m a big fan of foreshadowing, and there is some of it there in the book (if you want me to talkabout it i’ll make a post with spoilers). And i’m not mad about the foreshadowing on the book, which is pretty obvious, which is a little annoying, like the moment you read it you know it’s gonna happen. But you could read fast and miss it.

But yeah, there were moments that i just couldn’t accept because they came from nowhere and it felt a betrayal.

Also, i had a little trouble with fact he talks a lot about Basiliscs, Hydras, Phoenixes, but like, tell me a little history of how it all came to be? Explain to me the world a little more, because most of the time i felt like i had to guess about stuff, i mean, i understand this is a world where these kind of things exist, but in ours it doesn’t, share and explain why it does in this world.

I mean, the book is entertaining, it took me a little too much to finish reading it, but i enjoyed it enough that i’m looking forward to reading the next one coming out this Tuesday. .

Still, for an Adam Silvera’s book it fell short to the others books he has written.

Also, if this is the book he said he’s got a pilot written for (he din’t especify for which of his books it was) i would watch the show for sure.

I don’t wanna come out as a hater, i did enjoy the book, it just wasn’t what i was expecting.

Overall i have it 3.5 stars rounded up to 4 in goodreads, hoping it gets better in the next book.

And if you want me to talk about spoiler stuff let me know.

I totally forgot to talk about the representation on this book. As always there is representation in Adam’s books. I wasn’t surprised by it, but it wasn’t as developed as i expected it to be. I hope in the next two books it gets more place and finally we have a happy ending for LGBTQ+ characters on Adam’s books. Like, (beware of the spoilers) to this day it never ended well for the gay relationships in his books and it’s sort of getting old. I want a happy ending. But i bet someone will die, because that’s how Adam works most of the time.(END OF SPOILERS)

Favorites | February 2021

February passed by like a flash, and i feel like i didn’t have enough time to do ANYTHING. I mean, i can’t even remember how i spent these days, i feel like i accomplished nothing.

Let’s see what did i manage this month anyway!

TV Shows

WandaVision será un rompecabezas con mucha comedia

I’m still very obsessed with Wandavision and i can’t wait for it to be Friday every week, all week. It doesn’t help that they may be developing a solo movie for Scarlet Witch because i’m so obsessed with her it’s ridiculous.

New poster for the new Apple TV and M. Night Shyamalan series SERVANT. |  Servant, Tv, New poster

I’m also very obsessed with Servant, which got to a point i don’t understand anything going on but still… i love it. It is so freaky nd crazy. It’s great.

Maestros de la Costura 4" regresa con más nivel y más espectáculo

Once again my mother go me to watch with her one of her reality shows, Masters of Sewing (maestros de la costura) and it’s addictive. I need to stop visiting my mom, because she always makes me watch this kind of things and i just can’t i can’t believe i end up enjoying this kind of tv show.

Also, i need to catch up with the seasonal anime, i left it all and now i feel guilty for it. Need to come back to them asap!!

MOVIES

I don’t have a favorite of the month, i watched some marvel movies, but it wasn’t the first time for any of them, also all the other movies i watched… weren’t that good… so here goes nothing.

Books

What Big Teeth

WHAT BIG TEETH by Rose Szabo was my favorite reading of the month. It was such a peculiar reading, i loved it, a lot.

REVIEW HERE

MUSIC

Nothing special, I mostly listened to anime’s openings and endings…

VIDEOGAMES

This is stupid, but i’m totally obsessed with

Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! | Nintendo Switch | Juegos | Nintendo

I bought it as a early present for my birthday and i do nothing but play it. I still wonder if i should’ve choosen Eevee but, I got this one so we’ll never know. It is my first time playing a pokemon game and it is so addictive, i need welp.

Yes, it wasn’t such a productive month and i hate that. I hope March comes with better vibes and energies!!

Let’s Talk Bookish | How Has Blogging Affected My Reading?

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly meme, hosted by Rukky @ Eternity Books & Dani @ Literary Lion, where a topic is presented each week and we get to share our opinions on it and spread some love among others’s opinions too!

This week’s topic is: How Has Blogging Affected Your Reading? (suggested by Mini @ Book and Corner)

Resultado de imagen de books on books on books

I always loved reading, and i always loved writing, so i guess writing about the stuff i read made a lot of sense to me.

Yet, blogging has completely changed the way i read. The most important thing is the amount of books i read now in comparison to the amount i did before i started blogging, or really blogging as i am doing these days.

Before i started blogging i would read one or two books a month, and mostly reread books i loved. Now i feel like an “obligation” to read more books, which i don’t hate, on the contrary, i love the fact that writting about books makes me read even more than i ever did.

The blogsphere opened my eyes to a lot of new content i never dreamed i could get to, i hear about new books and opinions on different bookish topics which help me become a better reader and a better person, or at least that’s how it feels to me. I learn a lot from other bloggers, and i totally love the fact that even if i bring very little to the discussion i can share the platform with so many wonderful people.

I now write stuf down about the books while i’m reading them to remember them instead of rereading all the time the same stuff.

It’s like, now that i know i have a place to share my opinions i feel the urge to read more, so i can have even more content.

Sure, sometimes i write a lot and then i have to delete the stuff i’ve written because it doesn’t feel right, but most of the time i feel safe in my own blog to talk about everything that means something to me.

Blogging opened my eyes to a ot of diversity i didn’t realize i was missing out on. I think, reading more diverse authors helped me to see the world different and outside my little bubbble. I don’t know how much do you know about me but i’m a very lonely person without much life experience and now i find myself reading about so many different ways of living, it’s insane how much i was missing.

It’s not a secret i read mostly YA books because i missed so much in my younger years and this way i get to live it a little. Blogging gives me the place to share this kind of topics i would never talk about with the people around me becuase they wouldn’t understand it. But in here, i feel like there are people out there, like me.

I don’t know if i’m still on topic…

But blogging and reading, in my head, go together. I read, i blog about it, i interact with people, i read more so i can blog more.

I love reading and blogging and i wouldn’t change it for any other hobby.

I don’t know, i feel like i went out off topic, but tis was something i guess i needed to say or something.

If you got to here.. thanks for reading!

Did reading or blogging or both change you in any way? If you participate in this weekly meme i invite you to leave a link to your own post so we can read it too! Also, leave your comment down below!

Have a great weekend! ♥

Rent a Boyfriend de [Gloria Chao]

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before meets The Farewell in this incisive romantic comedy about a college student who hires a fake boyfriend to appease her traditional Taiwanese parents, to disastrous results, from the acclaimed author of American Panda.

Chloe Wang is nervous to introduce her parents to her boyfriend, because the truth is, she hasn’t met him yet either. She hired him from Rent for Your ’Rents, a company specializing in providing fake boyfriends trained to impress even the most traditional Asian parents.

Drew Chan’s passion is art, but after his parents cut him off for dropping out of college to pursue his dreams, he became a Rent for Your ’Rents employee to keep a roof over his head. Luckily, learning protocols like “Type C parents prefer quiet, kind, zero-PDA gestures” comes naturally to him.

When Chloe rents Drew, the mission is simple: convince her parents fake Drew is worthy of their approval so they’ll stop pressuring her to accept a proposal from Hongbo, the wealthiest (and slimiest) young bachelor in their tight-knit Asian American community.

But when Chloe starts to fall for the real Drew—who, unlike his fake persona, is definitely not ’rent-worthy—her carefully curated life begins to unravel. Can she figure out what she wants before she loses everything?

Concrete Rose (The Hate U Give, #0)

I literally just started reading the book yesterday but it already caught me. I loved THUG (with all my heart) and i’m sure this one won’t disappoint either… i have a great feeling about this book… also the reviews are awesome so i won’t be surprised if it is a really moving – great book. I know, i know i have very high expectations on it, but hey, Angie delivers, so yeah, i’m very hyped about it.

Nina has become of my favorite authors though i read only two books by her, her way of writing is so amazing, i’m starting this book today and i’m very excited! I don’t know what to expect from it, because i didn’t read any reviews, but the summary sounded very intersting and the way Nina writes… i’m sure it will be a wonderful reading.

Infinity Son (Infinity Cycle, #1)

Adam Silvera is of my favorite authors of all time, i loved every book (heartbreak and all) i read by him… but this one wasn’t as great as i expected… I mean, i liked it and i will read the next book when it comes out (i think it comes out next week) but after all the hype i had for this book i was a little disappointed. more to come on a review this Sunday.

Letters to Jupiter

This collection of poems took me by surprise and i think it helped me heal from some wrongs of the past. I did enjoy it, though it came to me spontaneously after a review i read of it. Totally recommend it.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is wp-1604580908186.png
Yes No Maybe So

According to my TBR for the month the next book I should be reading is Yes No Maybe So, but i don’t know if something else will pop up before i read this one, i read some reviews that it wasn’t that good, so now my heart is not 100% into it, but if you have a different opinion let me know.

Clean Getaway

After Dear Justyce (I’m still crying over it) i was left wanting more by Nic Stone so i may read this one soon enough because i already own it. Also, i’m trying to get her other books Odd One Out and Jackpot, because her wrting is so touching and amazing, i want to read more books by her.

This collection of Poems is about fragility, self destruction, self healing and love. You can see it in every poem in the book.

I’m not a big reader of poetry but i found myself drown into this collection because of a review i read (i’m sorry i can’t remember who wrote it and i can’t find it) and so i decided to give it a try.

I really love the way poetry is being written this days, i have an ongoing discussion with my mother whether poetry should rhyme or not. The way poetry is written these days is much freer than it was before and i feel it can express a lot more than it did before.

I love that this collectin was raw, and wasn’t afraid to show it.

Are you listening?

my soul burns for you

to let go

you must burn

rid yourself

of all the darkness

and learn

to breathe again.

I found myself in many of the poems, and i totally adore it. It felt a little too short for me, but i guess that’s waht the author had for us this time. I’m looking forward for more words from her.

I still wonder why the book is called Letters to Jupiter, which is really killing me… maybe i should try and reread it and see if i find something more. It is a very short book, but i’m sure you can find a lot of meaning in its words. I’m convinced i’ll reread it, one by one, poem by poem and give a complete meaning to it all. Or not. Who knows?

Overall, a short, touching collection. I gave it 3.5 stars.

Summary: Rose Szabo’s thrilling debut is a dark and thrilling novel about a teen girl who returns home to her strange, wild family after years of estrangement, perfect for fans of Wilder Girls.

Eleanor Zarrin has been estranged from her wild family for years. When she flees boarding school after a horrifying incident, she goes to the only place she thinks is safe: the home she left behind. But when she gets there, she struggles to fit in with her monstrous relatives, who prowl the woods around the family estate and read fortunes in the guts of birds.

Eleanor finds herself desperately trying to hold the family together — in order to save them all, Eleanor must learn to embrace her family of monsters and tame the darkness inside her.

Exquisitely terrifying, beautiful, and strange, this fierce gothic fantasy will sink its teeth into you and never let go.

After an incident at the boarding school Eleanor lives in she decides to come home to a family she hasn’t seen in years. She knows the basics about her family and their secret (they can become wolves) *not a spoiler*. When she comes back home her family doesn’t seem to care much but after a while she finds herself trying to keep them together and saving them from a major problem. Is she like them or is her darkness even worse? Can she save her family?

I absolutely loved this book. It has this atmosphere that reminded me of We Have Always Lived In The Castle. The story is dark and criptic. You can’t understand everyting that is happening from the very beginning. And you may find it hard to follow at times. But the story is delicious.

We know as much as Eleanor, the main character, does, about her family and we learn about them from her point of view, which leave a lot of place for speculation as you read it.

The story is dark and fascinating.

I loved the fact that this isn’t a love story, this is the story about a family and their problems, their supernatural problems.

I really enjoyed the way it was written and Eleanor herself, she is a great protagonist with flaws and not a know it all. She makes mistakes and she needs to mend them before its too late for her and her family.

I don’t really want to give anything away on this book because it is so different and unexpected. I think you should just give it a try if the summary seems interesting to you.

Overall, an unexpected gem i’m fascinated by.

I gave it 5 stars, because it kept me guessing what will happen next all along which was awesome and refreshing.

Totally recommend it, especially if you liked We Have Always Lived In The Castle by Shirley Jackson.
