Hey Everyone! Welcome back to my wrap up post! I’m a little bit late on doing this post because I’ve been on a semi hiatus this month, but it’s better late than never, right? Anyways, this month I was able to read nine books and thankfully most of them were hits for me so overall it was a good reading month. I didn’t get to finish all of the books in my September TBR list but I’m hoping to finish the remaining books in October.

GODS OF JADE AND SHADOW BY SILVIA MORENO GARCIA
I absolutely loved this book! It has great characters, wonderful setting, and an engaging storyline. Even if you’re not familiar with the Mayan Mythology and Mexican folklore, you’re still going to enjoy this book. It’s a standalone read and I highly recommend it, if you’re into adult fantasy filled with adventure and magic.
BLURB: The Mayan God of Death sends a young woman on a harrowing, life-changing journey in this dark fairy tale inspired by Mexican folklore, for readers of The Song of Achilles and Uprooted.
Here we shall begin to tell a story: a tale of a throne lost, of monsters and magic. A tale of gods and of the shadow realm. But this, our story, it begins in our world, in the land of mortals.
It begins with a woman. For this story, it is her story. It begins with her.
The Jazz Age is in full swing, but Casiopea Tun is too busy cleaning the floors of her wealthy grandfather’s house to listen to any fast tunes. Nevertheless, she dreams of a life far from her dusty, small town in southern Mexico. A life she can call her own.
Yet this new life seems as distant as the stars, until the day she finds a curious wooden box in her grandfather’s room. She opens it–and accidentally frees the spirit of the Mayan God of Death, who requests her help in recovering his throne from his treacherous brother. Failure will mean Casiopea’s demise, but success could make her dreams come true.
In the company of the strangely alluring god and armed with her wits, Casiopea begins an adventure that will take her on a cross-country odyssey, from the jungles of Yucatán to the bright lights of Mexico City–and deep into the darkness of the Mayan underworld.
Mixing the excitement of the Roaring Twenties with Prehispanic mythology, Gods of Jade and Shadow is a vivid, wildly imaginative historical fantasy.
