The Holloway Girls by Susan Crispell!! 🌟 Arc Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!!

Remy is a Holloway girl. And, this comes with a strange sort of responsibility for a girl at age 16. A Holloway girl’s kiss supposedly brings bad luck during her season. However, when it’s Remy’s turn, she discovers that even something as simple as a lucky kiss can turn bad. She kisses her crush and he falls under a spell of bad luck! But, is this really Remy’s fault?

I mostly enjoyed this story. My favorite piece to this tale is Tobin’s character and how Remy seems to grow stronger and more confident by the end of the book. The magic is really low-key and not discussed in great detail but that didn’t take away from this fun, fast-paced read.

Out June 7th!

🌟Arc Review 🌟 Reclaim the Stars by Zoraida Cordova!

Thank you Netgalley for this incredible read!

Reclaim the Stars features 17 short stories all by different Latin American authors! These stories are scifi/fantasy focusing on the diaspora of the Latin people. I can honestly say that I loved every single story in this collection and I couldn’t pick a favorite if I tried.

What is so spectacular about these stories are the connections found and forged. Whether family or finding a new community that accepts someone as family. Also, these tales are full of universal feelings that define us all… love, friendship and more than anything else, hope!

I cannot recommend this enough and it’s hard for me to see anyone disliking this gorgeous short story collection. Do yourself a favor and grab this book!

Comes out February 15th!
