Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights highly anticipated upcoming releases.
Usually I’d wait until a book is published to see the reviews but there are some that I can’t help but be hyped for.
Today I got a highly anticipated release that I want to tell you all about but we still have to wait until june to get to read it

Bruja Born (Brooklyn Brujas #2) by Zoraida Córdova
Publication: June 5th 2018 by Sourcebooks Fire
Three sisters. One spell. Countless dead.
Lula Mortiz feels like an outsider. Her sister’s newfound Encantrix powers have wounded her in ways that Lula’s bruja healing powers can’t fix, and she longs for the comfort her family once brought her. Thank the Deos for Maks, her sweet, steady boyfriend who sees the beauty within her and brings light to her life.
Then a bus crash turns Lula’s world upside down. Her classmates are all dead, including Maks. But Lula was born to heal, to fix. She can bring Maks back, even if it means seeking help from her sisters and defying Death herself. But magic that defies the laws of the deos is dangerous. Unpredictable. And when the dust settles, Maks isn’t the only one who’s been brought back…
The best thing about this book (aside from everything else) is that I got an ARC (!!!) so I’ll be posting a review soon enough. Let me just say this
This is a latinx urban fantasy with
witches brujas, zombie-like beings, hunters and all kinds of magic. It has awesome representation, since it’s own-voices, and the way the magic system is also tied with religion was really interesting. The characters are well fleshed out and the pace is fast enough to keep you reading but slow enough so that you understand what’s happening.
Full review (!!!)
