Monthly Wrap Up | July 2021

July wasn’t a particularly good reading month for me as I had not one but two mini reading slumps in the second half of the month. However, I’m very close to my original reading goal for the year of 100 books, so it is now officially raised to 150! This is a much shorter wrap up than usual, but let’s take a look!


10 Books

3,770 Pages

Book of the Month

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Yadriel is determined to prove that he can be a real brujo, though his traditional family has trouble accepting that he is transgender. With his cousin Maritza, he performs the ritual to gain his powers successfully one night. He soon finds out that his cousin Miguel has been murdered that same night.

He decides to raise Miguel’s ghost to find out what happened, but also to set it free and demonstrate to the brujx community and his family that the ritual was a success. But the ghost Yadriel raises is not his cousin, but that of Julian Diaz, the school’s bad boy and he is less than cooperative about being released into the afterlife. Julian wants to find out how he died, and check in on his friends before he leaves and having no choice, Yadriel agrees.

    I’ve got to say that even with the reading slumps, you’ve got some really decent reading done last month! Hope this month is even better!
