Do you remember your dreams? Do you ever have nightmares? ( #ad @readriordan ) Even though I’m a wimp, it’s been awhile since I’ve had a true nightmare. I’m more the type that lies awake too scared to fall asleep! Paola Santiago is back with MORE monsters and ghosts in “Paola Santiago and the Forest of Nightmares” by @TehlorKay , Book Two in the Paola Santiago Series. This series is a fantasy adventure based on the Mexican legend of La Llorona (the Crying Woman) and combines folklore with modern-day challenges! I had never heard of La Llorona before reading “Paola Santiago and the River of Tears”. I love being introduced to folklore from all over the world in the context of these fun stories and by authors drawing from their own heritage. This is always my favorite and top reason for reading anything from #RickRiordanPresents Do you like creepy stories? #PaolaSantiagoAndTheForestOfNightmares is out today in hardcover and audiobook! Synopsis: Six months after Paola Santiago confronted the legendary La Llorona, life is nothing like she'd expected it to be. She is barely speaking to her best friends, Dante and Emma, and what's worse, her mom has a totally annoying boyfriend. Even with her chupacabra puppy, Bruto, around, Pao can't escape the feeling that she's all alone in the world. Pao has no one to tell that she's having nightmares again, this time set in a terrifying forest. Even more troubling? At their center is her estranged father, an enigma of a man she barely remembers. And when Dante's abuela falls mysteriously ill, it seems that the dad Pao never knew just might be the key to healing the eccentric old woman. Pao's search for her father will send her far from home, where she will encounter new monsters and ghosts, a devastating betrayal, and finally, the forest of her nightmares. Will the truths her father has been hiding save the people Pao loves, or destroy them?
