Happy First Day of Fall!
My favorite season and I am so so happy for it. Unforunately it’s going to be like 90 degrees today so…
I hope we actually do have a fall this year. It seems like it’s also actually the shortest season of all ugh. I’m so glad summer is over because I cannot and hate the heat. Ugh.

This Strange Way of Dying: Stories of Magic, Desire and the Fantastic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Spanning a variety of genres—fantasy, science fiction, horror—and time periods, Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s exceptional debut collection features short stories infused with Mexican folklore yet firmly rooted in a reality that transforms as the fantastic erodes the rational. This speculative fiction compilation, lyrical and tender, quirky and cutting, weaves the fantastic and the horrific alongside the touchingly human. Perplexing and absorbing, the stories lift the veil of reality to expose the realms of what lies beyond with creatures that shed their skin and roam the night, vampires in Mexico City that struggle with disenchantment, an apocalypse with giant penguins, legends of magic scorpions, and tales of a ceiba tree surrounded by human skulls.
Why I MUST Read This
I’ve read Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s current book Gods of Jade and Shadow a month ago and was absolutely blown away and this seems just as gorgeous, so of course I HAVE to read this. You can check out my review for Jade and Shadow here.
Why I’ve Yet to Read It
I have over 1k books in my TBR but I’m moving this up ASAP tbh. Right now I am reading a teen romance shockingly enough!! And will hopefully have a review for you guys soon 🙂 I’m excited.
Happy happy fall and happy monday! What’s your goodreads monday??? Let me know in the comments 🍁
