I adore this one. Thomas seamlessly weaves Latin culture inside this ghost story. It is gorgeously written and while a bit heartbreaking a fun romp and good mystery.

My daughter has been nagging me to read this for weeks. I finally picked it up and read it in a morning. There's a lot to love about this book! The groundbreaking characters and the rich culture combined with mystery and adventure all come together to make this immensely enjoyable!

Very funny to me that there are two randos in the blood sacrifice and the special ceremony at the end. Sorry randos! Today is not about you!

I'm not hopping onto social media to brag about figuring out what was going to happen in a book for teens, but I have been waiting for nearly 300 pages for the telegraphed uncle to use the conspicuously stolen jaguar knives, and it has finally happened.

I don't do a lot of recs, & when I do they're usually LGBTQ and specific to the current topic. But, when I do rec books out of nowhere, it's usually one of these, a manga, or White Trash Warlock!
Anyone else want to play? Consider yourself tagged if you want to share some of your fave recs! Otherwise, @coffees @Bookzombie @Eggs @Andrew65 @maich @Nutmegnc @TiminCalifornia you're tagged (if you haven't done it) at least! #SundaySoapBox

Kenyazero @Nutmegnc It's one of my all time faves too! 6mo
Kenyazero @Nutmegnc I am looking forward to reading the new book. I haven't read the book he just put out, so I have two exciting things to look forward to. Ha oops the upper left is The ABCs of LGBT+, which I read because I wanted more ideas on how to talk about my sexuality. 6mo
Nutmegnc @kenyazero cool!! (edited) 6mo
coffees I like that you recommend LGBTQ titles 😍 i always feel a bit nervous doing that bc idk where people stand on the topic 👀💦💦 i haven't read any of these though lol but I did buy cemetery boys bc i heard good things about it 😁 5mo
Kenyazero @coffees I always make sure to rec LGBTQ+ books because I feel like they're important and it's important to rep books from or about marginalized people. I'm queer (granted, my queerness doesn't show and isn't discriminated against as strongly) and so are a bunch of my friends, so I don't care what people feel on the topic because they don't get to decide my friends and I aren't worthy ;) I hope you enjoy Cemetery Boys! It's a ton of fun. 5mo

Ho visto molto hype per questo libro, e sono rimasta un po' delusa... L'idea è molto bella, e anche il mondo l'autore crea è bello e particolare, però la scrittura non mi ha presa fino in fondo. Su alcuni dettagli l'autore è molto ripetitivo, li sottolinea più e più volte (al punto che a una certa volevo dirgli che avevo capito, basta), mentre su altri è nebuloso e glissa... Ed è tutto un po' confuso. 2/5 ✨

Yadriel is determined to prove he is a true brujo and being trans doesn‘t change that. so he summons the spirit of his recently deceased cousin that everyone is looking for. but instead, accidentally summons the spirit of a cute boy named Julian that may have been murdered. as one does. add in a sassy and competent female cousin to help. I love absolutely EVERYTHING about this book. So so so good.

Yadriel is intent on proving he belongs with the brujo of his family, & so he summons a spirit to help them pass on. Only, instead of his cousin, he gets the ghost of a cute boy who may have been murdered. As one does.

This was intense & adorable & tough to listen to. Yadriel deals with a lot of pressure but is still determined & kind. A little predictable at times, but lots of fun.

I want a whole novel from Maritza‘s POV kthxbai 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

I am OBSESSED with this book. Yadriel‘s family won‘t let him do his ceremony to become a brujo because he‘s trans and they don‘t think Lady of Death will accept him, so he does it by himself and raises a spirit to prove himself. Except, he raised the wrong spirit, and this one won‘t leave just yet. Now Yadriel has to help Julian tie up lose ends without his family finding out what happened.
Their dynamic is amazing and beautiful to watch unfold

I enjoyed so much this book. I will like to know if the rituals mentioned in the books are the way some persons practice them, because I have heard different variations of this celebration. But the idea is so lovely. I loved that end, the acceptance and support of Yadriel‘s father. Julian is so funny a little bit emotional☺️and Maritza so lovely. At the of the audio, the author said is thinking to write a sequel from Julian‘s perspective. 3.4⭐️

This has been on my TBR since it was released, but I was skeptical that it would live up to its incredibly rave reviews & found myself avoiding it. It seemed seasonally appropriate to pick up now, & it just blew me away. I listened to a Libby audio copy & ordered myself a print version halfway through listening because I already knew I‘d want to come back to it multiple times. This was vivid, funny, & heartwarming. It surprised me in the best way.

Continuing 'Cemetery Boys' tonight. I'm pretty much mad at every character except for Yadriel, Catriz, and Maritza right now. I only hope that Yadriel gets to be a Brujo, and that he gets recognized as who he really is. I'm tired of jerks misgendering him and referring to him using his deadname!!!

Okay, this was the perfect amount of spooky, emotional, & adorable! I loved the descriptions of Latinx culture surrounding Dia de Los Muertos & the insight into struggling with a trans identity in a gendered culture. Yadriel is such an endearing character as he attempts to prove that he is truly a brujo by harnessing the power of releasing spirits to the afterlife. Of course Julian is the epitome of charming bad boy that he encounters on his quest

I love taking audiobooks for hikes and walks and bike rides! I don't think I have a favorite for this, since I just listen to whatever I am currently listening to. Here's a hike for #LitsySummerCamp where I'm pretty sure I was listening to Cemetery Boys. (I don't always listen while hiking since I usually hike with others and want to be aware of sounds around me, but I really wanted to finish this book!)

Kenyazero I was tempted to just give a shout-out to Lord of the Rings as a walking book since that's probably 80% of the books' contents! 11mo

I wanted so bad to read this book, that I dreamt about it before even reading it, now that I finally got my hands on it I can say that no dream could come up with the intricate characters and world Aiden Thomas created. I'm not a crier but i SOBBED reading this and smiled and laughed and fell in love. It's a new favorite for sure! I simply know Yadriel's story will be hard to recover from and honestly, I don't even want to. BIG 5 stars!

What a powerhouse of a book. Lots of magic in the air, and a deep dive into the mystical aspects of Latinx culture that was fascinating. Yadriel‘s journey to himself was adventurous and powerful, beautiful and strange, and a truly lovely story of the power of both family and of first love. Intense and heartbreaking and rejuvenating all at once. I loved it.
