Descendant of the Crane by Joan He [review] the hype did NOT lie to me, friends. this was amazing

I think I've found my first favorite read of 2019. Well, that's kind of debatable because I'm unsure of whether I would classify The Gilded Wolves as one of my favorites? (It was really good, but I don't know whether or not it was amazing-amazing-aMazInG). This kind of reminded me of Beneath the Citadel x The Girl King, but … Continue reading Descendant of the Crane by Joan He [review] the hype did NOT lie to me, friends. this was amazing

Far From Agrabah by Aisha Saeed [blog tour & giveaway!!] ft. a Novel Retelling of Aladdin

I heard "Aladdin" retelling and "author of color" and I arrived. Like I mentioned in my March recap, I'm not entirely sure of whether or not this would technically be classified as an ownvoices novel because I'm not 100% educated or informed on which nations are considered Arab (the author is Pakistani). But I was still … Continue reading Far From Agrabah by Aisha Saeed [blog tour & giveaway!!] ft. a Novel Retelling of Aladdin

Things I Noticed in My Reread of Nemesis by Brendan Reichs [blog tour]

I’m lowkey terrible and don’t pay enough attention while reading. Like, there are so many things in books that I don’t realize and I just have to like,, reread the entire page??? Or sometimes I have to go back like, three pages because I’ve been aimlessly moving my eyes and not interpreting ANYTHING AT ALL. … Continue reading Things I Noticed in My Reread of Nemesis by Brendan Reichs [blog tour]

Beneath the Citadel by Destiny Soria [review] I’m Disappointed But This Was Still Good?? Mixed Feelings?

It's safe to say that I have very mixed feelings about this book. I mean, I'm still not sure of whether I should be rating this three or four stars. Because three stars isn't necessarily a bad rating!! I used to think of it as one, but really... I've decided that three stars are actually … Continue reading Beneath the Citadel by Destiny Soria [review] I’m Disappointed But This Was Still Good?? Mixed Feelings?

Echo North by Joanna Ruth Meyer [review] *screaming intensifies*

Echo North?? DO YOU MEAN, ECHO "MORE" because I want more of this book? Subscribe if you want more high-quality puns. I put time and effort into them. For example, I spent at least 3 seconds thinking about that Echo More pun. Also, this book is seriously underrated and I've seen very little hype for this book?? Even … Continue reading Echo North by Joanna Ruth Meyer [review] *screaming intensifies*

The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi [blog tour] literally the most gorgeous, lyrical writing to ever exist

  People: Shakespeare's writing is so good!!! Me: literally Roshani Chokshi exists but ok Seriously, um, who allowed Roshani Chokshi to write like this because somehow or some way she has clearly harnessed the power of the gods and gone beyond mortal boundaries. This is not okay. This should not be allowed. This will be a … Continue reading The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi [blog tour] literally the most gorgeous, lyrical writing to ever exist

The Girl King by Mimi Yu [review] ft. HEAVY COLONIALISM (!!) IN EAST-ASIAN INSPIRED FANTASY (!!!)

*stares at the low ratings* *stares at my five-star rating* Well. This was one of my most anticipated reads of the year, and was included in my list of asian-inspired fantasy books. It's about sisters betraying sisters and magic and shapeshifting is involved. Sounds amazing and cool, right? Yeah, except a lot of trusted reviewers … Continue reading The Girl King by Mimi Yu [review] ft. HEAVY COLONIALISM (!!) IN EAST-ASIAN INSPIRED FANTASY (!!!)
