Labyrinth Lost
Labyrinth Lost | Zoraida Cordova
Bruja magic runs in her blood, but a curse to get rid of it may cost Alex more than her power... Alex is a bruja, the most powerful witch in her family. But she's hated magic ever since it made her father disappear into thin air. So while most girls celebrate their Quinceaera, Alex prepares for Death Day - the most important day in a bruja's life, and her only opportunity to rid herself of magic.But the curse she performs during the ceremony backfires and her family vanishes, forcing Alex to absorb all the magic of her family line. Left alone, Alex seeks help from Nova, a brujo who covets her power for himself. To get her family back they must travel to Los Lagos, a land in-between, as dark as Limbo and as strange as Wonderland...

Hey #BFCr4 littens! I headed up to Khao Yai National Park for a long weekend and won't be back until tomorrow afternoon, so I'm afraid my weekly check-in well be a little late. Instead, here's my top pic of the day - a gibbon looking wistfully into the distance

I loved this book!! You really don't have an option to question what's going on as you're thrown into a world where Alex is a bruja and trying to reject her powers before her Deathday. Things don't work out as planned and sometimes we need to realize that what we think of as burdens are really our greatest strengths. #POCMCParanormal #Booked2019 #Autumn

Def appreciate YA fantasy (urban fantasy? magical realism?) w/a different kind of magic than we usually get—brujas & their traditions, powers, & lore, all really interesting & unique. Oddly though, I found the first half of this more intriguing than the rest, even though the latter portion is probably supposed to be more exciting. Pacing was off, & the romance angles were....weirdly handled, IMO. May still read the 2nd one, tho. 3/5 ⭐️

I loved this Dia de los Muertos inspired book! Alex is a bruja and hates having powers. So at her Deathday party, she tries to get rid of them, but ends up sending her family to Los Lagos. Then Alex and her friends have to go to save them. It's not original but it's fun. Plus the classic YA love triangle involves 2 females, so that's new. #YA #fun

This book was definitely different from anything else I have ever read. The amount of imagery that went into this book was fantastic. Alex, for me, had a lot of growth as a character and I loved that. I did find some aspects of the plot towards the end predictable and I felt the ending was rushed. However, the love interest plot twist was FANTASTIC! I will definitely be picking up the sequel.

I started this book today. I will finish either tonight or early tomorrow and then I will buy the sequel tomorrow. It‘s so damn good and I want so much more.

On another note, today was rough. I wont lie. I‘m terrified of whats going to happen. The US has always been deeply flawed and it is heading in the wrong direction when once there was growth. I don‘t have words of encouragement but I‘m holding it together. I hope you are too.

TheNextBook @Notafraidofwords I know. It‘s sending a message about the people they dont care about. I‘ve been spending a lot of time on Twitter and while informative, it can be sensory overload and today I had to step away. I don‘t know where we go from here. I‘m not putting that much hope in November honestly. I‘ve been drinking all afternoon... 13mo

The first of the Brooklyn Brujas trilogy, Labyrinth Lost does a lot of place-setting and introductions of the main family, primarily the three sisters at the core, Alexandra, the heroine in this book, and her sisters, Lula and Rose. I couldn‘t help but think of the upcoming CW reboot of Charmed with an all-Latina cast of sisters. Labyrinth Lost is easy and fun with good twists and just the right amount of teen angst.

We need a "meh" sticker. I was so excited for this book based on the description, but once Alex goes to Los Lagos, I was borrrrrrrrrrred. Bored bored bored. I guess I'd been excited for brujas in Brooklyn (you know, like the name of the series) and didn't care about fully magical realms. And the LGBT romance felt forced. Meh.

My pick for #YAWednesday is Labyrinth Lost! Alex doesn‘t fit in with the culture of her family, who are all brujas and descended from Spanish-speaking immigrants to the US. She‘s a bruja, too, but doesn‘t want to be. There‘s also a queer love story in this book which just makes it even better!

Labyrinth for when the author comes to Kansas City, Geekerella b/c it looks good, Brain on Boys b/c I've seen the title a few times and the cover cracks me up, and the other two b/c I've been on a kick for YA suspense about teens and identity, especially when media and false personas/manipulation come into play.

@UnidragonFrag I finished my first book from my #SSGP package. It was a great read! It reminded me a lot of my family (Hispanic roots) even the religion; I have santero's in my family who believe in many gods. The love interest was 2nd place here which I loved! I hate isnsta love books, so this was great! It was a complete journey which didn't leave on too much of a cliffhanger so waiting for the second won't be so tough! Thank you so much again!
